Algono, (In.) Upp»r DM Motott TuMdtty, April 26, 1966 Present 61 Awards During Annual GHS Booster Dinner . i ,,; LI \l . • i I • A large crowd thoroughly enjoyed the emceeing of Rev. James A. Supple, director of the Newman Center at Iowa State University, Ames, and talk by Bernie Saggau, assistant secretary of the Iowa High School Athletic Assn., during the annual Garrigan Booster Club Banquet here Wednesday night. Between chuckles, deep-seated laughs and some serious thoughts by Rev. Supple and Saggau, the school's coaches, Beanie Cooper, football and track, Steve McCall, basketball and golf, and Duane Kramer, baseball, presented the major and minor award winners and cheerleaders to the audience. All in all, it was a good, solid night of entertainment, which followed a very adequate dinner. Rev. Supple wowed the assemblage of parents, etc. with his assortment of stories that ran the gamut from false teeth to church and Saggau, who is also a very well-known athletic official, presented a good assortment of his personal experiences, some funny, some serious, before pointing out to the high school athletes that they have only three real needs in life - parents, school and church. He cautioned enmity toward officials, saying "no officials are poor - some are just better than others," which seemed a safe statement from an official of the IHSAA. A surprise presentation of a plaque to Jim Hershberger, football coach at cross-town Algona high, caught Hershunawares, and brought down the house. He received a standing ovation as Coach Cooper made the presentation. Hershberger is leaving Algona after six years to return to college in quest of a master's degree. Coach Cooper, who has become known as quite an after-dinner speaker during his years here, left most of the speaking chores to Rev, Supple and Saggau this time, and wound up his short talk with a barbed minute or two on haircuts (or lack of them) among students, McCall followed Cooper to the mike and his first words - "I'm glad I got my haircut today," was followed by a lengthy laugh and round of applause. Kramer's talk was short and ended with him paying deep tribute to Cooper and McCall Hershberger Is Amazed!
