, (la.) Thunday, Auqutf 18, 1966 Christie, Cooper Will Issue Gear Friday; Squads Report Next Day High school coaches all over the state will be greeting candidates for their 1966 teams this weekend. Locally, equipment will be handed out by Coach Keith Christie at Algona High and Coach Beanie Cooper at Garrigan High Friday, with drills to get underway the following day. Both schools have enough letter winners returning to form the nucleus of rugged clubs-barring anything unforeseen, such as injuries, failure of some athletes to produce as expected, etc. Sessions that begin Saturday, Aug. 20 (through Aug. 23), will be limited to shorts, T-shirts and football shoes - and are supposed to be designed for conditioning. Contact, blocking, tackling, etc., can begin with full equipment Wednesday, Aug. 24 - and no school can play a scheduled game before Sept. 9. That's when both schools here will open 8-game slates, the Bears meeting Estherville and the Bulldogs tangling with Emmetsburg. Squad rosters of the two local teams will not be available until all players have reported and checked out equipment. Not long after that - the real fun (if you like rugged competition) begins I Local Swimmers Do Well, Led By Schuffer At the Jefferson Swim Meet Sunday, John Schutter broke the old Iowa record of : 24.7 in the 50 yard freestyle and tied the state record of :24.3. However, because the starter wasn't an A.A.U. official, the time will not be officially entered in the record book. In the boys 8 and under, Jon Peterson continued to show his domination by winning both 25 yard freestyle and 25 yard backstroke. This is quite outstanding since he swam against not only Iowa swimmers, but also swimmers from Omaha and Rock Island. Jim Martin placed fifth in the 25 yard freestyle In that age group. Randy Nielsen took first in the boys 9-10 50 yard backstroke and Shannon Lynch took sixth in the 50 yard freestyle. Then Paul Martin and Pat Korley from Emmetsburg teamed up with them to grab an easy first in the 100 yard freestyle relay for their age group. Susan Walker and Nita Limbaugh teamed up with other North Iowa conference swimmers and took second in both 200 yard medley relay and 200 yard freestyle relay. Susan also took third in the 100 yard individual medley and sixth in the 50 yard breaststroke. Nita took fourth In the 50 yard backstroke. Ryan Lynch took sixth in the boys 13-14100 yard breaststroke and swam on the 4th place 200 yard freestyle relay. In addition to winning the 50 yard freestyle, Schutter won the 100 yard freestyle in :53.2.John also anchored the 200 yard freestyle to first place, coming within 3 seconds of the state record. Also' on the relay was Ron Nelson, Algona. Ron took third in the 50 yard freestyle and fourth in the 100 yard freestyle. Gary Nelson showed he was in shape by taking second in the 200 yard individual medley. He also placed sixth in the 100 yard breaststroke. He and Larry Taylor also swam on the fifth place 200 yard freestyle relay. Edgington Is Still Second At Jackson Jim Edgington of Algona copped first in the modified B- feature at Jackson, Minn. Speedway Saturday night and retained his hold on second place in the season point standings. He didn't however, pick up any ground on Marv DeWall, the leader, who won a heat race, the trophy dash and feature. Edgington now trails DeWall by about 300 points. Les Wildin, also of Algona, who took second In the first heat, is now in ninth place in standings, while Leo Christensen, West Bend, is 13th and Gene Schattschneider of Algona is 17th. PIKE Ron Rethum of Manchester had a good day's fishing on the Mississippi river at Guttenberg recently. He returned home with six large northern pike, one weighed about 12 pounds and Smother 10 pounds. SPORTS Football Deaths Preventable CHICAGO— Hcai deaths among high school and college football players could be a thing of the past ifcoachcsand plrner-; follou recommendations made at a meeting here recently. When football practice opens in a few weeks, the first hot da\s could be dangerous for placers unless precautions to avoid heat illness are taken now, a panel of medical and sports authorities agreed. Heat illness last >ear caused the deaths of one college football player and four, possibly live, high school players. It contributed to "close calls" and injuries of many more. The live-man panel, appearing at a meeting sponsored by the American Medical Association's Commit lee on the Medical Aspects of Sports, agreed that: 1. Prospective football players should gel out of air-conditioned surroundings now and start getting uccuslomcd to vigorous exercise in hot weather. 2. Coaches should abandon the old practice of withholding water from athletes during practice. Failure to replenish water and salt lost through perspiration increases the chances for heat exhaustion or heat stroke. 3. Athletes should be acclimated to hot weather by carefully graduated practice schedules. At least the lirst live days of practice should be devoted to non-contact workouts. 4. Both coaches and players should be alert for signs of heat illness, such as lethargy, stupor, awkwardness, or unusual fatigue. University of Kentucky football coach Charles Bradshaw said his squad's practice sessions were improved by regular breaks for water and rest. Overworking players in hot weather only decreases their efficiency, he said. Said Purdue University's team physician, L. W. Combs, M.D.: "Coaches used to think that if a player lost a lot of weight on the lirst day or so of practice, it was a good workout. Actually, all the player lost was body liquid—which is dangerous." Allan J. Ryan, M.D., team physician at the University of Wisconsin, agreed with Dr. Combs. "Any player who loses more than three per cent of his body weight in a practice session is not getting enough salt and water," he said. Excessive salt and water loss can result in heat stroke, an extremely dangerous condition, Dr. Ryan pointed out. Anyone can sulfer heat stroke if he is active in hot weather and neglects 10 replace salt and water lost In perspiration. The result is a breakdown in the sweating mechanism and collapse. If prompt measures aren't taken to gel the heat stroke victim cooled immediately. the result can be death —sometimes within 15 minutes. Approximately HSO.tXX) boss in 14.500 U.S. high schools now play fool ball, said Clifford H. I ;igau. executive secretary of the National federation of Stale High School Athletic Associations. "The few deaths that occur in football can probably never be completely eliminated." l-agan said, "but we can eliminate deaths due to heat i 11 ness — t liey are preventable." Coaches can avoid trouble by keeping a close watch on (heir players for the lirst signs of heal illness, said William L. Newell, athletic trainer at Purdue University and executive secretary of the National Athletic Trainers Associat ion. Parents can help protect their athlete-sons by watching for signr. of fatigue and emotional strain, such as loss of appetite and poor sleep habits. Newell said. Fred Hein. Ph.D.. director of the AMA Department of Health Education and secretary of the AMA's Committee on the Medical Aspects of Sports, was panel moderator. Dr. Ryan is a member of the AMA Commiuee on Exercise and Physical Fitness, and is a past presidem of the American College of Sports Medicine.
