GARRIGAN AWARDS 145 SPORTS LETTERS Hall-Of-Famer Bob Feller Guest Speaker A talk by Bob Feller, Hall of Fame major league hurler with the Cleveland Indians from 19361955, who got his start at Van Meter, highlighted the seventh annual Garrigan Booster Club Athletic Banquet here Thursday night. A large crowd attended and saw members of the Garrigan coaching staff hand out a total of 145 'athletic and cheerleading awards. Feller's talk ran the gamut from his early days, playing catch with his father on the family farm near Van Meter, to his attending the recent Olympic games at Tokyo, with a few tales about his playing career thrown in. He stressed the fact professional sports are fine - if you complete your schooling firstl Feller also told of meeting his wife-to-be, Virginia, while on a spring training trip to Florida, it seems Virginia didn't know much about baseball, in fact, according to Bob, "when 1 first met her, she didn't know if Babe Ruth was a ball player or candy bar!" Beanie Cooper, Garrigan's- head football coach, opened his short talk with a quip aimed at master of ceremonies Everett Barr that brought down the house when he said, "Everett's employers at Sioux City a long time ago didn't know he was a drinker until he came to work sober one day." It more than evened the score with Barr, who later admitted it's impossible to get the best of Beanie in a verbal contest. Garrigan Athletic Director Bill Brennan was first to the podium and he awarded a varsity golf letter to Bob Smith; minor awards in golf to B. LaBarre, D. Owens, J. Hamilton, L. McCarthy, J.

Here are a few hints. He's a corn robber. In his younger larval stage, he eats corn roots, causing severe lodging . . . may reduce yields in fields by 70 per cent or more. This year, he has spread his operation to take in more locations in- midwestern states where he is showing re- ,. —•———— sistance to chlorinated hydrocarbon pesticides. You've guessed it. It's the notorious western corn root- worm. He is about the toughest pest midwestern corn growers will have to contend with in 1965. In the last six years this condition of western corn rootworm resistance has spread from a small aVea in Nebraska to new areas of Kansas, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri and South Dakota. And this year, the problem may get worse as it spreads to new localities. In just a few weeks, the late spring hatch of millions of rootworma will begin their destructive handiwork. As young larvae, they will quickly establish themselves in young roots. They will continue to feed there from early June through August. But the most devastating damage will be done within a 30-day period from mid-June to mid-July. Growers will see the discouraging end result next fall when severely lodged corn will prevent harvesting.

"Not everyone may be able to send in a contribution as soon as he receives his Easter Seals, but we're hoping most will give," she said.
