Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - April 7, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Sun., April 7, 1974 TV's Wide World' Eyes Girls' Tourney .THERE is no doubt the state .1 of Iowa has been a leader in girls high school athletics, and little argument that the annu- al state basketball tournament series has become the state's No. 1 sports production. But, all that has happened in the past might pale in compar- ison to what could happen to the future of the annual spring ritual that winds up as the "Sweet 16" state tournament field in Des Moines. And, it is well beyond the ru- mor stage. Several television networks have expressed an interest in the Iowa girls state tourney which drew record crowds again last month. They shot film of the tourney which in- cludes not only exciting bas- ketball, but also spectacular entertainment between and preceding games. As a net result, the ABC Wide World of Sports has ex- pressed a desire lo include the Iowa girls tournament into its highly popular, nationwide sports production. E. Wayne Cooley, the ener- getic executive secretary of the Iowa High School Girls Athletic Union, is currently on the road, 'apparently in con- tact with ABC officials to ne- gotiate for the network pro- duction. No Rumor "It's more than a Bob Smiley, Cooley's top aide who is currently hold- ing down the fort in Des Moines. "There is nothing definite yet, but it is in the discussion area and that is why Wayne is out of town." It follows, of course, that the girls final might wind up as an afternoon event if the ABC contact is completed. The Wide World of Sports i, an afternoon show. Such an eventuality couli put a little pressure on sur rounding states, and, in fact on all 50 states. Cooley recently hinted tha some neighboring states tha are being literally draggee into the world of girls basket ball, have ignored the popula Iowa 6-player, 2-court game ir favor of a game that is simi lar to boys basketball. Such a game, he suggested might not be as popular as the one played in Iowa and th sport might not reach the stage it has in Iowa. Nationwide exposure coulc wind up being a lever that could turn Iowa's popular girls game into a nationa' pastime. Decisions The Girls Union represent- ative council and board in control could wind up acting on the television spectacle at an important June 19 meeting in Des Moines. Another matter that will be up for discussion will be a decision on whether to go to the 2-class system in girls basketball, similar to that now in use by the boys. More than a year ago, Coo- ley's suggestion for a 2-class meet was rejected by the board. Cooley had feared that a large number of new basket- ball schools might become dis- couraged by tournament fail- ure, even though most repre- sented the state's largest schools. "I don't know how the group will go on that admits Smiley "but I would guess they may put off a 2- class decision for at least an- other year." The reason would be simple. "Some of the new big schools, like Cedar Rapids Iowa Defeats Coe Keglers IOWA CITY-The University of Iowa's bowling team downed Coe in a dual match at the Iowa Memorial Lanes Friday. The final score was 2863-2478. Brad Haddy had a 210 game and a 589 series for the winners, while teammate Bill Bloomquist rolled a 225-586. Coe, now 2-1, was paced by Dan Herbst with a 200-586. Helen's Old Style To Host Softball Tourney CLINTON-The Helen's Old Style 12-inch Slo-Pitch softbiill tourney at Erickson Center will be held April 27 and 28.

Several Metro area schools will be running in the annual Viking relays at Vinton Tues- day and more will be involved in the Tiger relays at Tipton on Saturday. Linn-Mar, with its final all- weather surface, may have the area's most ambitious track program. That school will host four major track meets in addi- tion to numerous smaller events.

The hour is late. Business and free enterprise are in deep trouble. The responsible business com- munity must speak out now. What's going on here? Who owns big business anyhow? Big fat cats who grind us' all under their maniacal heel? Hardly! Twenty million Americans own stock far and away the majority percent: American people own stock through mutual funds, pensions or privately. The real capitalists, the real entrepreneurs, the real owners of American business are stockholders. Labor unions also have a big investment in the survival of free enterprise, and there are tens of millions of them. What voice and what collective bargaining rights would they have in a police state society? It's not hard to see why labor has been so powerfully pro- and pro-democracy and pro-free enterprise. How about the cynical voices from the pulpit, the intellectuals, the media, the literary journals, the basic sciences and the arts? What have they to lose if they can no longer complain, as surely they would be prohibited from doing, in any society not as free as ours. Remember FREEDOM IS INDIVISIBLE. You cannot have a half-free or nine- tenths free society and still be "free" Here is a breakdown of Americans by occupation groups, courtesy the last full census in 1970: 1. Semi-Skilled (factory and other workers, operators, apprentices, etc.) 18.6% 2. Clerical and Office Workers 15.5% 3. Skilled (craftsmen trained in a trade or skill such as plumbers, woodworkers, electricians, mechanics, butcher, watch repairs, etc.) 12.8% 4. Professional (doctors, lawyers, engineers, teachers, nurses and other technical workers) 12.3% 5. Unskilled Labor (domestic, industrial, farm worker, etc.) 11.2% 6. Service Workers (bank, advertising agency, research, consulting, etc.) 9.8% 7. Sales (retail and wholesale) 6.5% 8. Agriculture (farm owners and managers) 3.1% 9. Miscellaneous (retirees, housewives, students, etc.) 10.2% TOTAL 100.0% Which of these groups, would you say, would like to change over to the only three alternatives (or a combination of the three) to free enterprise, to wit: police state (Communism, Fascism socialism or welfare state? Which occupation group do you belong to and which political system would you prefer as an alternative to free enterprise? You say, big business runs congress? Big business gets anything it wants from congress by way of legislation or congressional "winking" at corrupt practices? Better think again! There is, in congress, and has been, a strong anti-business attitude. Business, admittedly not perfect, as you are not perfect in your own life, is viewed with great suspicion by many congressmen even though it is and has been stromg competitive business efforts which have raised America's, and much of the world's, standard of living to the highest level in history. In this, the ninth and last of my own personal effort, as a businessman, to counterattack those critics who are anti-free enterprise, may I propose some positive steps my fellow businessmen, as well as you, may take to guarantee the continuance of our free people. 1. Speak up lo college and university presidents and boards and ask that there be BALANCE in presenting BOTH SIDES OF THE FREE ENTERPRISE STORY TO STUDENTS.. 2. Speak out, as I have done in a yet free press, in defense of what is "good" and "right" in America. 3. Volunteer to speak at colleges and universities, on the radio and on TV also, purchase paid advertising through all media to inform the public about the benefits of free en-' terprise. 4. Evaluate college textbooks, as do civil rightists, labor unions and others to see that there is BALANCE in what is presented as the BEST INFORMATION to students. In a word, BALANCE. We have had too much of the cynics of our society and not enough from defenders. As we all near the 200th anniversary of the great American Dream freedom for all let us renew the effort lo make that vision come true.
