Mr. Brechler's talk gave many insights on how athletics operate at the state university. He also described how a big football squad is handled, how arrangements are made, and told how the team in its travels gets the best of everything. He pointed out that at the tail end of the coming football season the Iowa team will travel to Miami, Florida, to play, and might even take a side excursion to Cuba. Brechler said that Iowa does not go' in for outright subsidization, but if an athlete needs work to help pay his way the university endeavors to find him some employment that will fit into his educational and athletic program. Guzowski Honored At the conclusion of Mr. Brechler's talk, he sprang a real surprise when he awarded Coach Tony Guzowski a gold plated cup from the University for "excellence in scholarship and athletics." Promptly the athletes began referring to their popular coach as "The Brain." K. D. James and Jim Pool, two veteran attendants at these banquets, said it was the best athletic banquet they had ever attended, and that the meal itself was well received was evident. One of the younger Samp boys, as an example, in addition to his regular meal, downed three extra bottles of chocolate milk and two extra dishes of ice cream.

May Hold Mass Meeting, Swea, On School Vote Swea City Herald — In a special election concerning an $89,000 bond issue for a vocational agriculture building and bus barn, voters voiced a decisive "No" last Monday at the school. The vote, however, was relatively light judging from the total vote in the town election. 270 persons turned out in a drizzling muggy day to cast their opinions at the polls. Of that amount. 7 ballots were spoiled. 152 voted "No" and 111 gave the affirmative sign. In order to have carried, a 60 percent majority would have had to vote "Yes." Further, it is believed many did not thoroughly understand the issue at stake and accepted the theory that the building would be to house busses only. Since the schoolboard has been plagued with questions as to what they would do now that the building has been voted down and there is a chance of losing vocational agriculture, it has- been proposed to call a mass meeting to bring the subject directly to the.voters of this school district. Vocational agriculture, since started this past year, has made great strides in both student and adult classes, but in order to teach that course, a work shop must be made available for pro jects to bo carried out. If the mass meeting is called, and it seems likely that it will, voters will have an opportunity to ask questions nnd voice opinions concerning the buildins project. Until that time, however, voters should formulate questions in their minds and plan as to how they think the building should be constructed so as to best suit the needs of the school here. The first of the major fishing seasons begins at 12:01 a. m., April 15, when catfishing becomes legal in all of the state's nland waters. Daily catch limit on catfish is 8, and possession lim- t is 8. The minimum length requirement has been removed this year, and every catfish legally caught will be a "keeper." Commission officials remind anglers to be sure to purchase a 950 fishing license before try- ng their luck. Frogs may not be aken for bait until May 12. Cat- fishing experts believe angleworms and nightcrawlers will bo the best catfish appetizer until the weather warms up.
