'•' i -•* By Donald P. Dowel. Organization of a Kossuth County- lowa State college alumni association was perfected at the first meet- Ing of 76, graduates and former or present students and their guests evei%j at the Algona hotel Friday Ing following a 7:30 dinner. T. N. Metcalf, director ot athletics, and Dr. M. AltKen, of the athletic board, a member of the veterinary faculty of the college, were speakers on an after-dinner program, and Geo. W. Godfrey, Algona farmer member of the state board of education, presided as toastmaster. Between courses O f the dinner 'Ames songs were sung by the group led by H. J. Cowan, with Jeannetto Goeders at the piano. Mr. Godfrey read a, letter from the Rev. Allen H. Wood, 'ftg, regretting that he could not be present. Football Troubles Aired. Director Metcdlt told the alumni the staff's troubles with the football team In recent seasons. The athletic council has devoted much time and attention to a study of the situation, but has been unable to find a cause for repeated poor seasons. The school's record In other sports has been good. In six sports Ames has been first second, or third In the conference. The team sports, however, are weakest at Ames: football, basketball, and baseball. The basketball team this year was good, but there was not enough reserve strength, and play- ,ers forced out of the game by 111- Patient Home Again— . Earl Patterson was brought fie Saturday.

They returned pun accompanied toy 'ness could not be replaced satlsfaci torlly, which accounts for a bad season this year. Ames won two championships this year, cross-country and swimming. In this connection Mr. .Metcalf complimented Walter Fraser, Algona distance star, whom 'he called the backbone of the team.- • New Coach is Found. The staff has now decided to forget the past and concern itself only with the .future. The past wintei 'has been devoted to a, search for a coach. In the present situation it is extra important to get the rlgb1 man, and it was deemed unwise to gamble with a young man, who had not proved his ability. Of all the men recommended to the council, It was clear that one slope head and shoulders above the rest At that he 'had no recommendations by consulted directors, and he hadn' applied for the position, but an Ames alumnus had been Influentia in securing him. This man is George Veenker, 30 years old, who coached •high schools in Indiana nine year; before going to the University o: Michigan as assistant 'coach' In charge of basketball. On the deatl of the head basketball coach then Mr. Veenker was chosen to succeed him, and he lias had 'three success ful seasons since then, winning oni championship in the Big Ten. Coaching Staff Completed. Although Veenker is the secom highest paid basketball coach In th< country, he agreed to come to Ame at a lower salary, because he want* to coach football. He is already a Ames temporarily. ,;The coaching staff at Ames Is no\ perfected. Mr. Metcalf said h wouldn't trade his five head coache for any other coaches at any Inst tutlon in the country. The facilitle for-physical training and athletic indoors are not the best at Ames but the outdoor equipment Is fair A $25,000 project under one sid of the stadium has been completed which will relieve the situation t some extent. Director Metcalf re marked that 'one redeeming featur of •the/Aihes athletic situation wa that -the alumni baclj the coacher even if games are lost. KoMuth Athletes Recalled. ..Dr. Altken, member of the athlet: board, spoke along the same lines a. Director Metcalf. He told the audl ence a Httle of the director's caree pointing out, as proof of his nationa reputation, his presidency of th National Collegiate association physical directors, in which conne< Uon (his acquaintance with other d rectors was advantageous In the search for a new coach. Dr. Altken spoke of Kossuth county men who had been prominent in Iowa State athletics, Including Ray McWhorter, Burt, captain of the cross-country team; F, F. Barker, who once held the mile record; Harry. Ward, also onc e captain of cross-riountry; Dr. H. E. Woodward, Whitternore, three years on the basketball s<iuad; Edwin Hill, baseball and basketball; and others. Enrollment at the state college Is now the largest It has "over' been, according t o Dr. Altken, with the largest gains in engineering, home economics, and the veterinary school. The enrollment of women •has Increased 300% In the last 12 years; the veterinary department has Increased 100% in five years. Godfrey Sponks Briefly. Mr. Godfrey gave the audience a pleasant surprise by speaking briefly on the school situation In Iowa. The board of education, Mr. Godfrey said, Is up against the question of salaries. The legislature expects to pay only a nominal salary for presidents of the schools. You can get some men for low salaries, but not men of the right cal Iber to run colleges, Mr. Godfrey said. Iowa State college and the State University represent two of the biggest businesses in the state, with a, large cosh turnover. You can find no men in Industry In as large a business as our college pres- .iclcnts but at such low salaries. The president of the school is a business manager, Mr. Godfrey de a red. 1C he does this "work well is time is full. The success of a chool "tooes n ot depend on Its build ngs or equipment, but on the men charge. Fox Heads Association.
