PAGE SEVEN Parker Tells Experiences As President Being a member of the Board] had won 40 consecutive scheduled of Control of the Indiana High i (non-tournament) games. School Athletic Association is aj- EXPLAINING the organizational background of the IHSAA, pleasant, interesting and rewarding experience, but being President of the Board is much better. Those are "the words of Lester M. .Parker, principal of the Royal Center Consolidated High School, who will complete his one-year term as head of the 25 man council next July. Parker, who served'four years on the council before being elected last year to head the organi- guides all Indiana athletic events, has zation that High School been an educator for approximately 35 years. He has coached basketball at the high school where he graduated, Monroe City. An ardent basketball fan, he boasted recently that his old high'school Parker said the state is divided into five districts, identified by number. The schools in these districts are divided into five classifications, according to their enrollment. These classifications are schools with an enrollment 'up to 75, from 76 to 120; 121 to 250; 251 to 600; and 600 and above. Each of the five districts sent five qualified teachers to serve on the Athletic Council, each with a chairman. The chairmen meet annually to elect a president of the Association. ATTflE PRESENT time the IHSAA consists of 667 schools having an enrollment of approximately 100,000 students.. Parker said at one time the As-[Association convention which in volved 49 states and four' provin- sociation had over 800 schools as members : but because of' the trend towards consolidation, the number has -been' lowered. It probaly will become smaller in the years to come, even though the statewide enrollment in the high schools will increase. Among the many duties of the all-important IHSAA is the job of determining penalties and forfeitures for schools who violate its strict rules and regulations. ,The Association also interprets all -of the rules and by-laws; it decides on the charges of one scho'ol against another; it decides protests. THE ASSOCIATION s of Canada. The convention was held at French Lick during the summer of 1961, and will probably be held in Canada next year. He gave the Associations annual message at the Athletic meeting' in Indianapolis Jast October' during the .teachers institute. He has already signed a lease with Butler University for the .use "of the gymnasium for the basketball tournaments next spring. He ..recently signed.a lease for a suite of offices in Circle Tower in Indianapolis for three years to be used by the IHSAA. THE BY-LAWS of his organiza- has .thejtion require him to sign vouchers power to initiate, athletic investi-|^ expenses 'ncurred by the com- "I trust that you have a regular savings plan at The F.

I TWO CONVENIENT LOCATIONS Broadwav at Pearl Eastgate Plaza Branch gations of any school: it 1 can refuse to sanction' games; it 'can make temporary emergency rules and it provides for. the annual audit of the books of the IHSAA. The latter is a large responsibility because of the money involved in high school athletics in the state. Parker's duties, as president of the board, are mostly administrative, but he served as a delegate from Indiana to the National Fed- of High School Athletic missioners and -their assistants and to approve their expense accounts. No salaries are paid to the commissioners nor the president. Since taking office last July Parker has attended three district clinics at Lafayette, Hammond and Valparaiso,, during which new rules were explained to coaches. He attended a .basketball coaching school at Purdue and appeared on the program at the dedication of the new football stadium st Delphi last fall. He is scheduled to make additional talks at severs! other dedications before the end of the 'school year next spring. "^ board that Parker heads meets on an average-of twice a month to pick sites for basketball .tournaments and to name officials for ihe games. Arrangements' for these tournaments are made during these'meetings. The board also makes arrangements for cross country and track meets and spends much-time on,rulings involving the eligibility of athletes in complicated cases. THE RULES, regulations, and by-laws of the association-are contained in a 295 page handbook that is revised annually. It is large, Parker explains, because high school athletics in Indiana 'is big business, and grows larger every year. The president believes that participation in good -competative sports will eliminate many of the problems facing young people today and the board of'control of the IHSAA is devoted to the protection of these athletes and the maintainence of their amateur status. After teaching and coaching at Monroe city for 13 years, Parker went to Carmel where he gave up coaching and became principal of the high school. Thirteen years ago he moved to Royal Center where he has remained principal of the consolidated high school. HE HAS HAD 233 weeks of college training including study at Oakland City college, Purdue University "and Butler University where he was a straight A student. He is married, the father on nne married daughter and is a grandfather.. He . loves young people, enjoys' his work as an educator and followsjihe Royal Center basketball team-whenever his busy schedule permits. He is very 'definite about one time when discussing his work as the President of the Board of Control of IHSAA. One of the most pleasant duties he has had was complying with the rule that required him to meet with the board and attend the Indiana-Purdue football game at Bloomington this fall. .
