4-Algona, (la.) Upper Des Moinos Tuesday, Jan. 17, 1967 probably one of the top players in the game today - and part of his ability stems from his tremendous ability to spring. During a recent game, for instance, and it was the one in which he established a single-game scoring mark for ISU of 41 points, he banged his head on the corner of the bangboard while blocking a shot. Coach Anderson stood by with his heart in his mouth for a couple of minutes while Smith, a 6-8 performer, was treated while laying stretched out on the floor. His shots include a variety of stuffs, bank shots and tip-ins- which will probably allow him to shatter the all-time career record at ISU before he graduates. He's only a junior. don smith I'VE never been able to get very thrilled about the Ted Mack Amateur Hour on TV - but Jan. 8 (after the Play-off Bowl) did watch the program and was glad of it. Especially one act - a trombone solo by a Negro high school girl, Janice Robinson, which really hit the spot. She took off on the Tijuana Brass favorite, "Taste Of Honey", and the results were tremendous. Might not ever get a chance to hear her again - but hope I do. She's got real talent. - ?JACK Ruby, who turned his personal vengeance loose and ridded the world of Lee Harvey Oswald, accused assassin of President Kennedy, was finally freed from torment Jan. 3 when he died at Parkland Hospital, Dallas, the same hospital where President Kennedy and Oswald died two days apart in 1963. Found guilty of murder as a result of the Oswald shooting, Ruby was to have faced another trial, but a fatal illness brought that portion of the case to an end. He was found to be suffering with cancer and died of a massive blood clot in the lungs. His final weeks were torture, according to doctors 'and authorities, due to delusions. Apparently, he thought millions of American Jews were being executed for his act against Oswald — and complained that his cancer was induced secretly in jail before his hospitalization. The facts surrounding his act against Oswald, like most others in the entire matter, will probably never be known in full — although there are certainly enough so-called experts prying into it I - ?AN elephant looked'down at a mouse and exclaimed, "You're about the puniest, most insignificant object I ever laid eyes on." "I'm not always this little," the mouse squeaked angrily, "I've been sick." - ? WAS glad to learn the other day that the best time to spray for cockroaches and flies is 4 p. m. Now, at our house, we haven't had a roach problem (knock on wood) and flies haven't been bothering us either since the first hard frost moved in but I'm going to remember that time of day come warmer weather later tin's year, and those dam pests had better look out. - ?YOU might ask, and then again you might not, where did he ever get that valuable information on spraying times? It came from information released by the U. S. Dept. of Agriculture and has something to do with biological clocks that are apparently built into living things. Going into it further, scientists have determined the perfect time to kill roaches and flies and they said the biological clock is inborn, tuned to the 24 hours it takes the earth to turn on its axis. - ?THERE'S a fellow by the name of Don Smith who plays quite a bit of basketball for the Iowa State University Cyclones. He's "NOW," said the teacher, "give me a definition of space." Junior stood up, flustered and red. "Space," he said, "is where there is nothing. I can't explain it exactly, but I have it in my head all right." ONE of our cohorts got hold of a copy of one of the so-called "yellow journalism" papers the other day — and we decided to put some of the headlines in the column, stolen from stories inside. Here are a few samples "Torturing Women Is The Greatest Pleasure I Get Out Of Life", "My Husband Played Russian Roulette With Our Three Children As Targets", "Convicts And Wives Allowed To Sleep Together In U. S. Prison," "One-Armed Hobo Ends Wandering WhenTrain Cuts Off Legs", and "Police Put Bite On Chicken Thief After He Sinks Teeth Into Rooster". Now, that last one sounded like a pretty fair story - although we don't know because we didn't read them. The headlines make it sound like a good wholesome family publication. WAS surprised to learn the other day in This Week magazine that the United States has been involved in "only" 10 wars. They are the Revolutionary, War of 1812, Mexican, Civil, Spanish- American, World War I, World War EL, Indian Wars, Korea and Vietnam. Of course, if you add them all together, that's a lot of years of fighting 1 DID you hear about the manufacturer of electric light bulbs who said to the owner of a theater, "I'd like to supply you with bulbs for your marquee, and it won't cost you a cent. It will enable m? to realize a lifelong ambition." "If I accept the free bulbs," the curious theater man asked, "will you tell me about this ambition of yours?" "Sure," the man said, "It's just that I've always dreamed of seeing my lights up in names." TO THK HKSCl'E OKI ANT/C, :<'l:i. — Bulldozers came to tlie rescue. . .of :i not her bulldozer here. A 2r>-ton bulldozer, costing approximately ?7,rjOO, pluneeil into Lake Ivanhoe after falling from a manmade peninsula extending from the north side of the lake. Work on Interstate 4 project was stopped as three other bulldozers were called into to pull the half submerged vehicle to safety. Owner Bill Crawford said, "We're lucky it didn't sink tothe bottom of the lake."
