don smiiK ALGONA'S own Paul Seller, 1963 graduate of Garrigan High School, was given lots of mention in the daily papers (and rightly so) following Notre Dame's 2614 victory over Purdue in the season opener for the Irish at South Bend, Ind. Sept. 24. We know Paul very well, having followed his career here from junior high days (when he attended the local public school) through his graduation after an outstanding football career at Garrigan. He then received a scholarship and entered Notre Dame - although the Iowa Hawkeyes were really Interested in him, too. Paul is now a regular offensive tackle for the Fighting Irish after playing 52 minutes a year ago as a junior and 7 1/2 minutes in 1964 as a sophomore. He's a big, rugged guy who has always displayed a type of personality we like - he's actually humble and you don't often find that quality very much nowadays. And, Paul is also polite - except when ripping them up on the football field. He now weighs 240 and is 6-4, so we'd guess the pros will take more than one look at him this fall - because he's mobile, too, and size and mobility are not always easy to come up with. Paul's mower: (who is a dandy lady) and two .older sisters got to make, the trip to South Bend to see the Irish dump Purdue - and were undoubtedly thrilled by the play of their favorite. When Paul was in junior high here, one of his teammates was Tom Waller (son of our editor), who was named All-State quarterback and is now a defensive specialist in the Drake University backfield. Yessir, 1962 was quite a year for high school football here and local fans can be rightly proud of the lads representing them in collegiate ranks this season I STILL on the football kick, the death of one of our classmates, Woody Helberg, recently reminded us again of pur high school football days (only my exploits on the gridiron don't get ''better with age - as you can't improve on mediocrity). Woody was a -tackle for Algona High School prior to graduation in 1940 - and' a pretty fair one. He was plenty rugged, and played quite a bit during the final season in 1939. Woody was a good buddy - and when reminiscing about the '39 season, I. always think about how tough he had to be to mix it up as required. You see. Woody had diabetes and shouldn't even. have been put for the sport, probably, but liked it, so went at it with almost complete disregard for his aches and pains. We'll bet he had more intestinal foritude than 95 percent of the members of most football squads today. He was ill much of his life and succumbed to a heart attack at Iowa City Sept. 21. We attended his rites here the following Saturday, "THEIR parties are always so formal and stiff, She's so formal and he gets so stiff." CONTRACTORS ( like many other persons) run Into thedarn- dest things sometimes. In this case, Keith Rowley of Algona was doing some work in a local home. He found a crumpled up ( and delapidated) bunch of pieces of several different newspapers, some real old and others not so old, and presented them to us at the post office one morning. We tried to find the date on the oldest appearing one, but couldn't, so looked over some of the items just for the heck of it. One story told of the trial of a wife murderer, complete with bits of testimony from court a day earlier. The defendant said he remembered nothing of the events of the fatal . afternoon after he boarded a car for home, heavily intoxicated. He also said his wife drank liquor with him that day - and faintly remembered getting on the street car. According to the story, he made an excellent witness. Another story said, "With the score standing 3 to 0 against them, the Interurbans came to bat in the ninth inning yesterday afternoon and knocked the ball for four runs. Haskins secured a home run, bringing in the tying and winning tally."(Haskins should have batted for Casey). And at the Grand Theater (somewhere), Chic Perkins was appearing in the new western play, "The Little Prospector", with prices ranging from 15 cents to 75 cents for box and stall seats. It was impossible to glean much more from 'the scraps as they fell apart when handled - but it was fun going through them. SUPPOSEDLY, one of the latest drinks making the rounds is the Kodak Instamatic - take one and you're loaded. IF you want to hear an interesting discussion sometime, bend an ear toward a group of lawmen discussing the newly- gained rights of per sons arrested in the good old U. .S. As you may or may not know, peace officers are. now handcuffed by a recent Supreme Court decision dealing with what they may or may not do to a person under arrest. The criminal is protected almost to the point of being ridiculous. We're not in favor of reported cases of police brutality - but believe me, when they haul in the alleged slayer of eight persons (nurses), then are kept from questioning the suspect because of what might be termed stupid (and have been by m any) laws, it must be time to do a little changing of those laws somehow. All police are not good, neither are all bankers or any other classes of persons - but the old "innocent until proven guilty" thing has gotten way out of hand. Had you beei} the parents of one of those, nurses, how would you feel abptif the law? At present, criminals" almost have more rights (hah the proven innocent!' ' WHEN the late great Babe Ruth swatted 60 home tuns In 1927, whose record of 59 in a single season did he break? His own. And Babe's 15 home runs in World Series play still ranks at the top of the list. - ?WE'LL bet there's never been a drop-out from a guitar school! Post-Nuptial Honors For Recent Bride SENECA - Margaret Nielsen Rude of Pocahontas was honored at a post-nuptial bridal shower Saturday evening at the St. Paul Lutheran church parlors.- The guests were registered by Mrs. Fred Ericksen, the former Susan Breese, now of the Algona area.
