(lo.) Upper D*» Motnw Thursday, October 3, 1957 For the past few years 1 have been an enthusiastic football fan nnd more recently I have acquir- red a little knowledg* on the rules of the game. I cannot yet tell when the team is using a T or a split T formation unless father points it out to me and I really don't recognize a quarterback sneak until the quarterback has long since snuck it. But I have learned to listen to what Doc Shierk says on the public address system, to watch the scoreboard, (though I wish they'd fix the part that shows which down it is), and I know that when nn official holds his hands up in the air, somebody has just scored. * * * Lavonne Post's brother. Maury White, had an article in Sunday's Des Moines Register addressed to female would-be football fans. I enjoyed very much his boiled- down explanation of the game, part of which read, "Each team, by being either sly or nasty, tries to get across the opposing goal-line (1) alive; (2) with the ball; (3) as often as possible in about 2 hours and 20 minutes." He goes on to explain that we gals will get along O.K. if we remember to yell, "Let's go men!" when our team is trying to shove * the ball forward; to • plead, "Hold "em!" when the other team is advancing and to say, "Well!" at any action taken by the officials. This latter remark indicates, according to Maury, fRat the bifm is dead wrong — or finally right. * * » I checked up on myself after I read Maury's article and I concluded that I am coming along as well as can be expected as a football fan — or rather as a wife of a football fan. This conclusion was drawn mainly because he says the first requirement is enthusiasm and I've got that plus a voice that really carries. I have noticed one slight imperfection in my cheering, however. Sometimes I stand up and yell, "Go! Go! Go!" when it's the other team who has the ball. When: that happens, I pretend I was hollering at our guys who were chasing the ball carrier. * * * All that I am as a football fan. I owe to Father. When we watch a game on television, he sits there and patiently answers all sorts of dumb questions from me. That way I don't have to ask quite so many when we attend a game in person. I have now advanced to the stage where I can give something in return for all this valuable instruction. I can't yet explain very many of the plays that are going on, but the kids on the Bulldog squad have . grown up so fast and I have such a good memory that I can give Father quite a bit of information on the players. * * * It's done mostly with the aid of a printed program. When Pop says. Who's that number 36 who is doing the kicking? He's on the way to having an educated toe." I consult the program and tell him it's Robbie Hutchins. I can also tell him more about Robbie's toes. When he was about seven months old, his mother, Irene, had sorority at her house. Robbie woke up, I held him, and I played, "This Little Pig Went To Market" with those very Same toes! * * * ' Then number 50 makes a nice gain. That's Jim Cowan according to the program. Say, Pa, do you remember that time the folks went to Florida and met up with Vivian and Boy Cowan? Well, that baby Vivian told Mother she was going to have turned out to be Jim. And, don't you think Boy looks an awful lot like that Dr. Hudson on television? * * * Doc keeps talking about Deiter over the P. A. I guess he means Gruner and Deiter is his first name. He's number 51, Pa, and htfs Dottie Button's cousin. Oh, you know who I mean — he's been over to our house. They used to live next door to Mother. What? Watch the game? I am watching it. * * * 66 is Jim Moxley. Thai's Delia and Merle's boy, but now is that the youngest or the -next to the youngest? It must be the youngest because they've got one at State Teachers and one — 58? that's Jon Discoe. He's the new Baptist preachers' kid. I wonder if the new Congregational minister hfos any sons Who play football. i * * « Say, there are two Kains on the squad. Now, are they brothers? Well, maybe they could be the Kains who live out in the country. You know, the ono that married Lucille Black's, sister. That Richardson is sure doing all .right. Do you suppose he is Mary Ann's boy friend, Donnie Richardson's .cousin? * * * That number 64 is Joel Harris. He has certainly turned out to be a big kid. I saw Kathryn in the grocery store the other day and — Well! I was just telling you about the players: 53 is Tom Potter. Do you remember the time we were up at Woman's Lake and he and Marv Miller — he's number 59 — made all those sandwiches to eat at be time? What were they, peanut butter and grape jam? Anyway, it was some kind of jelly. * * * Howard Funk, number 63, is Ray and Dorothy's kid. I wonder' what relation he is to our kids. His Dad is your mother's first cousin so wouldn't Howie be our kids' third cousin? Or is it second cousin once removed? Say, don't Pam Waller and Pat Cowan look exactly like twins when they are cheerleading? You say, I just missed a very interesting play? I did not : I was watching every minute when the girls lead, "Hold That Line!" • * * * Gosh, 111 sure be glad when the Freshmen make the Varsity squad. Then, I'll know some of the players because we'll have a son, a nephew and two or three of my ex-Cub Scouts playing! It makes the games so much more interesting when you know something about football. And I'm certainly glad I read Lavonne Post's brother's article on how to be a fan. Especially one point —"Don't gab aimlessly during the. game." ' * * « Football reminds me of a little story I swiped from P. I. Colvig's column in the Lake City I've made the. Big Change, have you?

A coach's ypungstef was at Sunday School one morning and somebody asked him if he were going to stay for the Worship Service. ' "No", he said, "we're going out of town for dinner. So, we're going to leave at the half." * * * Dr. C. C. Richardson, former pastor of the local Presbyterian church, included a joke in his message to the congregation during the recent Centennial. He said when he was Pastor here during the late 30's and early 40's, he visited Sunday School one morning. One little tot was asked who the parents of Jesua were. The youngster replied, "Well, His mother was Mary. And I think His father's name was Josephvelt." * « • Unlil ihe recent bacon special put on by some of the Algona grocery stores, I've been lamenting the high cost pf bacon. Marcia Angle spent the weeeknd with Mary Ann and our daughter pointed out that Marcia was certainly lucky to live on a farm. "She gets her bacon absolutely free, Mama" said Mary Ann. "You see, they raise all their own cows." There are lots of ways to use bacon and most all of them are delicious, but it seems to me lots of people insult the delicacy by cooking it too fast. This not only shrinks it up it also spoils the drained off fat. This is a shame because there's nothing better than bacon drippings for frying potatoes and seasoning vegetables. * « * This week's recipe uses bacon— or did you guess I was coming to that? It's for Bacon-ColeslavJ Salad. 4 slices bacon % of a chopped onion 2 tablsp. flour 2 teasp. sugar 1 teasp. salt % teasp. dry mustard % cup vinegar V* cup water 2 tablsp. chopped pickle 1 chopped pimento 1 quart finely shredded cabbage Chop bacon and onion into bits. Cook until crisp. Stir in flour, sugar and seasonings. Add vinegar, water and cook until thickened. Remove from heat and add pickle and pimento. Pour over cabbago. Toss lightly. Serve O.K. New Paving Sexton-Wesley Tentative approval for 10 miles of new paving on highway 18 between Btilt and Sexton was given by the Iowa Highway Commission last week. The project would include 4 miles between* Britt and Hutchins, and SVa miles be* tween Wesley and Sexton. Presumably, the comparatively new stretch of paving between Wesley and Hutchins would be incorporated into the new road. Final approval in the next few months would mean some grading to be done in 1958. warm. Serves }6. —GRACE.
