Headline Makers -..-
Looking over the sport pages of
any daily paper one forms a remote
acquaintance with the celebrities
who make the headlines. Joe Louis,
Don Budge, Joe DiMaggio, and count-
less others are placed before the
public's eye so often that every small
boy feels that he knows the "Brown
Bomber", if not in reality at least in
his imagination. Those connected
with the sporting world, columnists
such as Grantland Rice and radio's
Ted Husings and Bill Sterns, have
come into close contact with the
"greats", know them as average hu-
man beings, and probably take them
for granted.
We, too, were thrilled when, at
the age of 10 or 12, we saw some

football star at close range, per-
haps even had Babe Ruth auto-
graph a baseball. Thinking back
several years, not too many, we
found that there were quite a
few instances in which just such
a thrill was obtained.
First and foremost will always be
not only actually meeting the great-
est coach of all time, Knute Rockne,
but having him come to the house
for dinner. Capable of doing little
else than staring and listening, we
have always retained the impression
that "Rock" was a wonderful man, as
well as a great coach and leader of
men. Quiet and modest, yet recog-
nized as one of America's most flu-
ent speakers, he was as efficient in
the business world as he was on the
sidelines of a football field.
Then there was the time when
Rip Miller, former lineman on
Notre Dame's famous "Four
Horsemen" team and Navy coach,
invited us to sit on the Navy
bench and our watching "Buzz"
Borries sweep through a helpless
William and Mary team from
that vantage point. Listening
to the talk on the bench and
smelling "Old Bill", the Navy
goat, who was regrettably close
at hand.
While still younger there were
such moments as being introduced to
Curley Lambeau, coach of the Green
Bay Packers, during the half of a
game in Philadelphia; caddying for
Harry Cooper at the Elmhurst Coun-
try Club outside of Chicago; meet-
ing Joe Cronin and owner Clark
Griffith a few moments after the
Senators had walloped the Yanks
ithat has -actually happened, hard as
it is to believe), bumping into Bar-
ney Ross on Chicago's LaSalle Street.
High school days were to find
close acquaintances with twoj
football players who were to
monopolize the headlines during
their college careers. Bob Mac-
Leod was a mighty good halfback
and low hurdler at Glenbard
High School, Glenn Ellyn, Illi-
nois, several years ago. His
record low hurdle effort nosed
York out of a conference cham-
pionship one spring, which we
didn't like too well. MacLeod
was to become Dartmouth's
great backfield star in later years.
Nile Kinnick was acclaimed Ameri-
ca's outstanding athlete last year.
The Hawkeye flash, who garnered
more trophies after the 1939 foot-
ball season than he probably knows
what to do with, began his brilliant
career at Benson High School in
Omaha, Neb. It is rather gratify-
ing now to realize that we were once
trampled in a high school scrim-
mage by 1939's greatest All-American.
It was interesting to hear Kinnick's
opinion this Christma's vacation of
the last Michigan-Iowa game in
which the Wolverines walked over
Iowa 27 to 7. "I thought Harmon

was all, and more, he was cracked,
up to be but we all considered Eva-
shevski the best man on the field
that afternoon," were his words.
A moment at the Big Ten-
Pacific Coast track meet at
Dyche Stadium in Evanston will
be remembered. Chuck Fenske
of Wisconsin was literally burn-
ing up the track as he moved
away from Southern California's
Zamperini in the mile and be-
hind us Fenske's grizzled father
was pounding on our back and
yelling "C'mon, Chuck!" Then
there were the times when we
met Jesse Owens, the Buckeye
speedster who covered himself
with glory in the 1936 Olympics
and who cracked three world's
records and tied another on Ferry
Field one afternoon; talking to
"Pop" Schulte, Nebraska's "grand
old man" of track; having Ab
Jenkins, famous American dis-
tance driver and holder of more
automobile speed records than
any man in the world, give us a
spin over the Bonneville Salt
Flats in Utah.
These were all memorable occa-
sions and are worth thinking back
upon. They are comparatively few
as compared to the experiences and
acquaintances some persons have had
but they have made us realize that
the headliners of the sporting world
are, more often than not, real and
admirable people.
