-TEN Nile Kinnick 'And tk l-ii- clie Anderson Receive Big City's Plaudits NEW YORK, IX*. •;. <W'i—-Hie city. of New York, and its T.UOU.OUO inhabitants, who rarely go overboard about .infilling, ,siim>n<[er«l ' completely today to those l\v,: inUl- we'lern titans: N'ile Kinnick ami Dr. Eddie Aiidfrson. Young Kinnick was recognlzrd last night us America's outstanding football .player nt die Downl:«-n Athletic Club's annual dinner, mid today, Eddie Anderson was 'proclaimed Hie football coaeli of the ycav by the New York World- Telegram. Wimt captivated, (lie nietf.:iiali.<i was this: Both Kinnick and Anderson represent, the same university— Iowa. Never before hns one institution provided these two nn- ttonal pigskin cliampions. That's why llisy wore singing today—from (lie Battery b the Bronx—"That's where the tall corn grows." Yoim» Kinnick, Town's nee halfback who was voted America's outstanding football player by some TOO sports writers mid broadcasters, achieved his last and greatest .Uuchdcnvn last night in his speed! of acceptance for'the Helsman Memorial Trophy award at the Down- 1 town A. C. Kinnick, \vlio caught the great .Bob Peller of baseball fame in his high school Adel-Van Meter days, blasted New York's chr.cnlc ban- queleers right out of. their lethargy when he slood completely poised before the "mike" mid tiratetl his ; surprised listeners to one of the .grandest extemporaneous talks anyone ever gave off in this area. Kinnick was doubly impressive because he went in for teamwork 'from two angles. He tried to shift the honors bestowed iip:n him to (1) His Iowa leammatca whom he described as the "guttlcst" guys ever,' to piny football, and to (2) Coach Eddie Anderson, who, in his ,first year at the Icwa helm, gutdecl the Hawkeycs to one of the most successful seasons they' have enjoyed in years. Anderson, when he wos called to the mike,' made virtually the same lateral. He credited Kinnick and the team with whatever success Iowa might have had in 1939. And trial success was so great and so unexpected that Anderson was picked as the c/ach of the year in the Wcrld - Telegram's poll, which comprised the ballots of 80 college pigskin pilots. .
