Van Meter Is the home of the justly celebrated Hfibert W'liiam Andrew Feller, strikeout wonder of the American League. Adel turned out Nile Ktnnick phenomenal sophomore quarterback who gained- more recognition on All" teams throughout the nation' tlian any other Iowa ijlnyer since the Aubrey Devlnc era. ...... Willie the good people of 'Van Meter want |t distinctly understood that Adel can't get away with claiming Feller on the ground -that shoothi" the year around. Kinnlck, the Iowa guard of lodav, Is ns accomplished on the basketball floor as on the gridiron. After Nile starred wll'l Adi>] 1fH\ for three campaigns, the Klnnlcks moved to Otiiahn, where ihe current Hnwkeyc luinliiary pcrforme;! .';.•> well for Benson High Ihat he v.'as named as an All-Nebraska forward. As n sophomore at Adel. the chunky little athlete hit a hoi streak which saw him average 12 points a game for 32 Raines. His team reached the llnal of the Iowa stale tournament nfler scoring more than HOO polnls during the season. IflU'ii Hani Yards fertile Ci'rouiut for scouts Kinnick stood out throughout Iowa's rather disastrous football campaign. The Old Gold and Black I beat only Bradley, but Wisconsin repelled tlie Hnwkevcs by only a touchdown, Indiana by only a field goal, anrt Michigan uy a point. The Haw key es made more yard- nge and first downs than Indiana and Michigan, and scored 10 points on Minnesota in the first-period. Kinnlck (loos everything v.'e!l in football, and is a superlative punter. What is more important, hc in equally outstanding in scholastic nbllltv and leadership, so much so that 'ns a sophomore he has won a \>osition as proctor in the men's quadrangle on the campus. It's seldom that a sophomore is given the .supervision of 100 other students. Kinnick ranked in the 'upper 1 per cent of -the freshman class last year with u 3.7 grade average, which is just .3 short of a perfect mark of A.
