They were married Jan. 30,1937, and the divorce was granted on Jan. 30, Globetrotters'antics' started in Algona Abe ,Saperstein, • famed .owner of the Harlem Globetrotters, credited an appearance either in Algona or Swea City with starting his colored basKetball players into a clowning game that has characterized their play for many years., Saperstein's remarks were, included in a nationally syndicated column :by Jim: Murray: of. Los Angeles, which appeared .Tuesday morife ing>in • the-'Des&Moines 'Register. In the story, Murray reported that '.'It's hard to imagine now but there was a time when the Globetrotters didn't feel a bit funny. It .was back in the depression and they played basketball around the Midwest against town teams as solemnly as undertakers^' • . "They, traveled around in an old Ford which had long legs — with holes in the shoes — sticking out of every window. One night, impresario Abe Saperstein .noticed the customers falling asleep," Murray continues. "He thinks it was in Algona, Iowa. But it may have been Swea City." "Let's clown it up,' he suggested. (Abe played in those days). His teammates protested strenuously but they did and the graph went up steadily from there. From Algona, the Globies went to the royal palaces of Europe, the misty Splendors of India, and drew $84,000 in one day at Madison Square Garden." Further on in the article, Murray writes, "If the Globetrotters go to Algona nowadays it's at 35,000 feet. If they stick their feet out the window, it's with spats on them," They are scheduled to appear here in March at the Garrigan gym under the auspices of the Algona Rotary Club.

Wederquist, Sexton. The youth, pictured above, was born with spinal bifida and has been in and out of hospitals much of his life thus far. Following is a letter written to Bill Nugent, Kossuth County March of Dimes chairman, a month or so ago. Dear Mr. Nugent, We received your check this week from the March of Dimes, to pay the balance of Jon's latest hospital bill, We greatly appreciate the help and the words "thank you" do not seem adequate to express our feelings, but for the present I guess that it will have to do. You were right in saying we have had a tremendous load "expense-wise" and we still have more years. However, when we look at Jon, normal and healthy, it is well worth it and believe me your check has helped us both financially and has made us realize that there are people who can and will lend a helping hand when possible.
