don smith BASEBALL fans at Greensboro, N. C. recently saw something that no other fans have ever witnessed - and it's doubtful if they liked it. Dick Drago and Darrell Clark, pitching for the visiting Rocky Mount team, hurled consecutive no-hitters in the twin bill - the former a 5-0 job and the latter a 2-0 win. Both games were seven inning affairs - and the only Greensboro base runners were seven men who walked during the games. HAPPINESS is seeing the Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux , Man light a burning cross and catch his sheet on fire - Johnny Carson. -?WE'RE being taxed to death already - but now Iowa Republicans have come out with this one - a state law to allow cities and towns to levy local income and sales taxes I A study committee figured out the taxes would help solve the money problem in the cities, where property taxes have reached, if not gone beyond, their limit. Better get ready, public, things are bound to get worse 1 -?NEAR the end of the golf season (high school, that is), Garrigan, Algona high and Emmetsburg were slated to meet in a triangular at the latter city. A mix-up developed, apparently due •to a school board ruling of the Algona district, which limits competition between the two local schools to Iowa High School Athletic Ass'n. events. In other words, tournaments. We don't want to take sides on the issue, but it seems to us competition on the golf course couldn't possibly cause any concern between the two schools - and probably not on the basketball court and baseball diamond, too. The two local schools, in fact, did compete in a golf meet with each other at Forest City in May, 1964, with Clear Lake the fourth team - and no serious problems developed. And' competition in tourneys (basketball and baseball) since Garrigan was established has been great I In covering practically all events at both schools, we have discovered one important item - hard feelings, and there aren't many, exist between the adults, not the students (any more than between students from any two schools) - and the number of adults who have such feelings is not large. There are some towns and cities where similar regular season competition between athletic teams has been great, with no problems, and others where serious actions have resulted in cutting off such competition. The local board, no doubt, is attempting to prevent such an explosion - which, we repeat, would come from adults - not kids! We're not going to haggle with anyone over any further decision on the situation - but think regular season events would pull the largest crowds the area has ever seen. DRUGSTORE ad in a South Carolina newspaper- Make Plaza Drugs a Habit I THE big paper is already painting a dark picture for the Iowa Hawkeyes, who recently held spring drills under new Coach Ray Nagel. Not enough talent, that's what they said, is going to keep the Hawks from doing much again this fall. We can't argue with men who seem to be in the know (and should be - they get a chance to see many things we don't), but we've got a hunch Nagel might pull a few surprises come the 1966 season.. At any rate, we're keeping our fingers crossed 1 ART Dickinson, 70, who was track coach and freshman football coach at State College of Iowa when this writer enrolled there quite a while ago, died recently at Phoenix, Ariz, of a heart attack. The state's biggest newspaper gave his obituary very little prominence, putting it on page 6 of the Sunday sports section. Besides leading the Panthers to nine North Central Conference track titles and accomplishing all kinds of fine things at SCI during his 34 years there, he was also given much credit for development of the whirlpool bath so popular with high school, collegiate and professional trainers nowadays. Art put me in that type of bath one evening at Cedar Falls following a severe foot injury (which turned out to be a broken bone) when this writer foolishly reported for freshman football weighing a trim 120 pounds. The injury ended a career on the gridiron that never did accumulate much luster. Anyway, our hat's off to Art, whose funeral was held at Cedar Falls May 6. HERE'S something we've wondered about for some time. When they count unemployed in this country, do they include the many do-nothing politicians in office - or do they escape being counted because (hsy are paid many times their worth. It's the opinion of many that if Congressmen in Washington (and legislators at state capitals around the country, too) were paid what they are actually worth to taxpayers, the amount might not equal the minimum wage of $1.25 per hour. It's too bad they don't have to pay more to support their own goofy poverty, etc., programs - and could also help by cutting the number of high- priced employees "working" in their offices. WE don't watch too much late TV at our house, probably due to the fact Hoot Gibson, Joel McCrea and Johnny Mack Brown don't thrill us like they did when the movies were new (and we were 30 years younger), but once in a while the Tonight Show, featuring an old midwesterner, Johnny Carson, attracts our attention. May 2, the guest list on the show was headed by Meadowlark Lemon, ace clown of the Harlem Globetrotters, and Carson mentioned he'd like to display his prowess on the court. So they went at it, one-on-one, and Meadowlark had a picnic, taking advantage of Johnny' s awkward moves (but against Lemon who looks too smooth?), to display a little of his talent. He told of the $50 bonus he receives from the club each time he's lucky enough to kick a field goal from mid-court (about six times per season) and the same amount for his famous long hook shot (and he hits four out of seven of those he tries) - then wound up singing "Witchcraft" in a Nat "King" Cole type of voice that is far better than some of the more famous singers possess. He brought down the house. GENT at concert: "She has quite a large repertoire, hasn't she ?" Buddy : "Yeah, and that dress makes it look all the worse."
