4^AIOONA «•*•) ADVANCf THUMDAY, », 1*4 it JULIAN CHRISCHIUII iwieei. iHiHpipi Wf WMIII St Edmonds next hurdle for unbeaten Gaiiigan IttlKWM A RATHER unusual thing happened to John Nemmers of Bancroft the other day ... he met a perfect stranger 2,000 miles from home, the pair struck up a conversation arid it turned out the men were cousins but had never seen each other!! John was waiting for an air flight out of Boston, Mass, from a station in Brunswick, Maine ... he began to visit with a man nearby and told him, "I'm John Nemmers of Bancroft, Iowa." '• The startled stranger laughed and said, "You wouldn't be putting me on, would you?" As the pair continued to ' converse, John found out that the stranger was Ron Ncm- ') mers of Waterloo and that they were cousins ... it seemed > the Waterloo Nemmers had also been stationed at Brunswick ,'j, for three weeks but the two didn't meet during that time. I, The Waterloo Nemmers is a grandson of Mrs. Mrytle >. Dixon Nemmers and the late Matt Nemmers, former Bancroft ^residents! GOOD FRIEND Gordy Winkel, present County Attorney, chided us on running the picture of "Bing" MacDonald Campaigning at St. Ann hospital while he was an appendectomy patient there . . . "Bing" is Republican candidate for the County Attorney position this fall. . "When I heard 'Bing' was going into the hospital, I planned ithis fishing trip to Canada," Gordy said laughingly. "But when I heard you'd run his picture on the front page showing him, campaigning with the nurses, 1 thought I better , hurry home." , ' '' On the serious side, the party of Winkel, Arnie Ricklefs, Jim Geclan and Larry Kees reported good fishing during their stay! ' IF THEY WANT to get the best two baseball teams to t gather in a post-season game, maybs they should pair the ., Minnesota Twins and the Atlanta Braves for a two-out-of\throe bast-set'. . . both have played fine baseball since the • All-Star break and have currently topped the leading clubs in ' both their respective leagues. Alas, but they count the entire season, not just the last three months! WHAT A DIFFERENCE a year makes . . . if you'll recall last September, it rained almost the entire month—in fact, the Advance files show that 10.38 inches of rain fell during the 30-day period and it rained 18 of the ; 30 days .'.. thus far in 1966, we have had only .86 of an inch and only one rainy day out of the 26 days thus far. Makes living in Iowa a pleasure but the lawns do suffer! ' > ; BEANIE COOPER isn't deluded in thinking lie suddenly has become one of the more popular coaches in the state overnight because he parts his hair differently or has switch; ed toothpaste . . . but he does chuckle at some of the inci- ' dents that have arisen because he has some pretty, talented | : .'football, players on hisT ? team. - v ;-; ' ^ ?v .:H *p« h Like the phone call he got before 8 a.m. the other ; morning at the school. Beanie wasn't even there yet and had 1 to return the call to Ted Lawrence, coach of the state champion Cedar Rapids Jefferson football team last year and now i freshman coach at the University of Iowa. • "Hello Beanie, this is Ted," the conversation went ac! cording to Beanie's.recollection. \": "Yes Ted, this is Beanie," he answered, figuring he might as well go along with the familiarity bit even though he knew Lawrence didn't know him from a load of hay. "Say Beanie, we'd like to have you come down to an Iowa game this fall and sit in the press box," Lawrence said and then as almost an afterthought, "and say, why don't you bring Bill along too." The Bill is quarterback Bill Reding, who is gaining a good deal of attention around the state. So the pair tentatively plan to attend the Ohio State- Iowa game and I'm sure will be given the red carpet treatment Nov. 12 during their stay . . . it is particularly ironic that probably the best two quarterbacks in the state right now are Reding and Lawrence's son, who quarterbacks the Cedar Rapids Jefferson team this year. STILL ON THE subject of Garrigan football, Paul Seller is being highly touted this fall at Notre Dame where he is in his senior year ... Maury White mentioned him in the Register the other morning and the sportsman's bible, SPORTS ILLUSTRATED, reported "Tackles Rudy Konieczny and Paul Seiler, both around 230, with very little experience, are very quick and big and must provide running rooni for Notre Dame backs this fall." Seiler is playing first string on offense this fall for the Irish, And Lyle Loebach of Whittemore, ex-Bear player, is being held on the San Francisco "taxi" squad at $300 per week this fall and could make the squad later on.

Becker Sporting Goods fourth straight If there is any arch-rival that Garrigan high school has cultivated in its e: c ;.i years of existence, it would have to be Et. Edmond's of Fort Dodge and that's the foa Coach Beanie. Cooper will send his unbeaten Garrigan Bears against Saturday night at Dodger Stadium. Game time It 7:30 p.m. and its the Gael Homecoming so there Is no need to Worry that there won't bit yelling .aplenty at kickoff time. Certainly, the fact that the Bears were "flat," in Coach Cooper's terms, last week should be all the more reason they are rarin' to go this week; You,don't win football games on nice things the press says about yoj and some mighty good teams have found this out in years past. "YOU KNOW, I keep mentioning that we were 'flaf last week but niiaybs I'm not telling the whole truth," Cooper added after the game. "This -was the bast football team we've faced by far and after two fairly easy games, it might ba that the brand of ball might; have slowed our offense some." Even in statistics, p'Gorman was not tod far behind the Bears. Garrigan led in first downs by just 11-10 and in total yardage by only 213-173. Of course, they had a wide margin in penalties, 98-15 but sometimes' the'home field advantage makes up part of this spread. One thing should be mentioned and this is not taking anything away from a fine Garrigan team. THE COMBINED RECOtfD OF THEER FIRST THREE OP PONENTS THIS SEASON IS 1-9. Estherville's victory over Sibley last Friday is the lone win by a Bear foe. Of course, you shouldn't count three of the losses because they came at the ii.L _i'_i_' ^f ki. _. w» _ -?* . i _•_. -. -"-.'

Still, the competition, has been gopi except for LeMars Gehlen iiid St. Edmond's well could the best of the' lot. They are beating Eagle Grove 40-6 in he opener and then losing 20-7 to LeMars Central, .unbeaten and ranked as one of the state's best clubs. Last week, the Gaels bowed to Spilth Sioux City 39-19 in what must be termed an upset. "We scouted Oie LeMars Central game and they looked real good. They have a fine Une and ar? a strong -cliib,"-' Copper reported.' .He also' got a .scouting report from Algpna coach Keith Christie,cwhp//scouted^ Eagle Grove- in the first game and broiight home some notes on the Gaels, too. THE BIARS came out of the Sioux Falls game with only one minor injury. Jack Oahlhauser out a finger and had to have stitches taken but he'll be ready this week. The B«er defensive lint cam* in for prij*e from Cooper. "Dick Mvller did a treat i«b and to did Dave McCarthy," the tear eoach •fid. And of count Rfdinf and Jack Muller averaged four yards p«r carry on offen*e. strecslng the .passing game. "We and 1 -mean the coaches,-'didn't get our passing game jelled last week at Sioux Falls.
