24-Santa Cruz Sentinel - Mon, Sept. 14, 1981 Obituaries Publisher William Loeb Is Dead Vital" Statistics Harold Coffin "We can't all be athletes. Most of us are too short for basketball and too tall to be jockeys, too honest to play golf and not crazy enough to ride surfboards, too brittle for skiing but not polite enough for tennis, afraid to play football and to proud to run." With that paragraph in the June 1981 edition of Reader's Digest ended the 50-year writing career of Harold Coffin, famous columnist and humorist. The paragraph was the last of Mr. Coffin's works to appear in print before his death Saturday in Capitola at the age of 76. Mr. Coffin was noted for his column, "The Needle." which ran for many years in The Sentinel and 45 other newspapers across the country. The punchy column was usually made up of four to six epigrams short pithy paragraphs on a single subject but capable of standing alone. "The secret to the knack of needling is to tickle a man s funny bone by kicking him in the shins," Mr. Coffin bad remarked. Mr. Coffin had a long career as a journalist and public relations writer. Born in 1905 in Reno. Nev.. he bit his teeth into journalism after graduation from the University of Nevada by taking a job as reporter with the San Francisco Chronicle. He then became waterfront reporter for the Honolulu Star Bulletin, seeing the first airplane land in the Hawaiian Islands in 1927. He returned to the Mainland in 1938 to become an advertising representative for the West Coast subsidiary of U.S. Steel. However, he quit to serve in World War II as a lieutenant commander in the Pacific. After the war he took a job as promotional manager for the San Francisco Call-Bulletin, then launched his successful career in free-lance writing. After his retirement from the Call-Bulletin, he moved to the Santa Cruz area where his writing was interrupted several years ago by heart probbms. Coffin made his own headlines in 1973 by proclaiming a "National Nothing Day," which is observed on Jan. 16. Coffin started the observance when he noticed all the "screwy" observances taking place throughout the year. Coffin's wife, Jane O'Sullivan Coffin, who was a well-known local artist and sculptress, died on April 17. Survivors include a sister. Mrs Mila Glass of Reno; a son. Larry Coffin of Berkeley Heights.

(APi - William Loeb. the acerbic newspaper publisher whose front-page editorials crusaded for a conservative America and helped sink the presidential aspirations of Edmund Muskie. has died of cancer at age 75 The publisher of the Union leader and the New Hampshire Sunday News which were based in Manchester but had a statewide circulation died Sunday at the Leahy Clinic in Burlington. Mass Ieb was eulogized in today's edition of the Union leader as "loved, hated, respected, feared. but never ignored." In a statement Sunday night. President Reagan called heb "a patriot and a man of deep conviction who had the courage to speak frankly and forcefully." Reagan enjoyed I-oeb's support in 1980. as did Richard Nixon in 1968 'and 1972 But Unb called President Eisenhower "dopey Dwight." pilloried President Ford as "a jerk" and called President Kennedy "the No. 1 liar in the United States." leb's opposition to presidential candidates, some of them front-runners when they campaigned in New-Hampshire's first-in-the-nation primary, garnered national attention. Democrats Lyndon Johnson in 1968 and Edmund Muskie in 1972 were targets of Loeb's acid criticism in the Union Leader. Both won their respective New Hampshire primaries, but with poor showings that eventually forced them to withdraw from the race. Id 1972, the Union Leader published the "Canuck" letter, believed to have been authored by a "dirty trickster" among Nixon's supporters. It quoted Muskie as calling people of French-American descent "Canucks" an uncomplimentary term damaging his presidential bid. Muskie had been the front-runner. Loeb also reprinted an uncomplimentary Newsweek article about Muskie's wife, which so upset the Maine senator that he appeared to cry in front of the newspaper's office, further hurting his chances. When President Jimmy Carter appointed Muskie secretary of state, Loeb wondered what good a "cry baby" would be in that office. Muskie, reached at his home in Kennebunk Beach, Maine, refused to comment on Loeb's death. Loeb had stopped writing the front-page editorials in recent months. In today's editorial, Paul Tracy, editor-in-chief of the I-oeb newspapers, said Loeb often told associates, "I don't care what people say of me just so long as they think." In 1979, Loeb said he planned to turn over ownership of 75 percent of the Union Leader to a trust for his employees. Shortly before, he agreed to settle a suit charging pension law violations by selling 25 percent of the newspaper. "After I die, I want the paper to be run by people who share the same philosophy that I do. that of public service." he once said. "While I always thought I was immortal, I realized that ... I should make it official." Decomposed Body Is Found In Watsonville WATSONVILLE - A fully clothed, badly decomposed male body was found by a jogger Sunday afternoon on Larkin Valley Road near Buena Vista Drive here, the county coroner reported. Sheriff's office spokesman Bruce Simpson said authorities are "routinely expecting foul play," but that no weapons or other evidence of murder were found at the scene. Sheriff's deputies said that the body appeared to have been dead for several days. The dead man's age and race were not known, due to decomposition, authorities said. An autopsy is scheduled for this evening. Margaret R. Welch Waller Morris V FUNERALS FUNERALS FUNERALS AP Laserphoto William Loeb in 1979 Forensic Dentist On Stand Today By PEGGY R. TOWNSEND Sentinel Staff Writer The trial of murder suspect Donald Cornett today continued to focus on the enlarged photographs of a series of wounds found on the body of a 17-year-old male prostitute. With the photos of the wounds projected on a screen behind him, Dr. Homer Campbell described how he determined that the marks on the wrist of murder victim Donny Serafin were "consistent" with handcuff marks. He also pointed out a series of "hash marks" on a bruise around Serafin's neck which indicated that a twisted rope had been looped or tied around the boy's neck. Under questioning from defense attorney Christopher Smith, Campbell admitted, however, that he could not determine the exact size of the rope which caused the marks. The testimony came this morning as Cornett's trial moved into its third week. Cornett, a 47-year-old former mortician and a casket salesman, is accused of murdering Serafin during a sadomasochistic sexual encounter. He is accused of being the person who was last seen with Serafin the day he disappeared and also of attempting to alter the appearance of Serafin's time of death by packing the body in dry ice. This morning, Smith questioned Campbell a forensic dentist on the method of photography which allows researchers to see a pattern of injury and thus determine the weapon used in a crime. He asked Campbell to measure the marks found on Serafin's wrists and compare them to four pairs of handcuffs brought into court. Campbell said he believed the marks were consistent with a handcuff but it was "possible" they could have been made with something else. Under questioning from Smith, he also testifiied he had only measured one piece of yellow rope supplied by the district attorney's office in his questioning. Campbell was still on the stand at press time today. A memorial Mass will be celebrated Tuesday for Margaret R. Welch, who died Friday while visiting relatives in Ben Lomond. She was 81.
