Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - April 7, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa £0 Tho Cedar Rapids Gazette: Sun., April 7, 1974 TVs 'Wide World' Eyes Girls' Tourney THERE] is no doubt the state of Iowa has been a leader in girls high school athletics, and little argument that the annual state basketball tournament series has become the state's No. I sports production. But, all that has happened in the past might pale in comparison 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 rumor 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 includes not only exciting basketball, but also spectacular entertainment between and preceding games. As a net result, the ABC Wide World of Sports has expressed a desire to include the Iowa girls tournament into its highly popular, nationwide sports production. E. Wavile Cooley, the energetic executive secretary of the Iowa High School Girls Athletic Union, is currently on the road, apparently in contact with ABC officials to negotiate for the network production. No Rumor "It’s more than a rumor.” admits Bob Smiley, Cooley’s top aide who is currently holding 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 is an afternoon show. Such an eventuality could put a little pressure on surrounding states, and, in fact, on all 50 states. Cooley recently hinted that some neighboring states that are being literally dragged into the world of girls basketball, have ignored the popular Iowa 6-player, 2-court game in favor of a game that is similar to boys basketball. Such a game, he suggested, might not be as popular as the one played in Iowa and the sport might not reach the stage it has in Iowa. Nationwide exposure could wind up being a lever that could turn Iowa's popular 1 girls game into a national i pastime. Decisions The Girls Union representative 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, Cooley's suggestion for a 2-class meet was rejected by the board. Cooley had feared that a large number of new basketball schools might become discouraged by tournament failure, even though most represented the state’s largest schools. "I don’t know how the group will go on that matter,” admits Smiley "but I would guess they may put off a 2-class decision for at least another year.” The reason w< "Some of the schools, like Cedar Rapids Id be simple, new big 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, final score was 2863-2478. Brad Haddy had a 210 game and a 589 series for the winners, I while teammate Bill Bloomquisti rolled a 225-586. Coe, now 2-1, was paced by Dan Herbst witiF a 200-586. Helen’s Old Style To Host Softball Tourney CLINTON—The Helen’s Old Style 12 inch Slo-Pitch softball tourney at Erickson Center will be held April 27 and 28. T|ie tourney is a double elimination affair and the entry fee is sixty dollars. Rain date is May 4 and 5. Meet the Preps it if Jack it if dv n Washington Ottumwa and Estherville showed up very well in the recent tourney series,” explained Bob. "They came very close to making the state tournament.” Track Time The outdoor track season gets underway in earnest this week, weather permitting. Several Metro area schools will be running in the annual Viking relays at Vinton Tuesday 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 addition t o numerous smaller events. The third annual Lionette relays are slated on Friday , May 3, with an afternoon session at 4:15 and a night session starting at 6:25. That field will be the best ever, including the three Cedar Rapids public schools, two Iowa City schools, along with Dewitt, Lincoln, Lisbon, Marion, Northeast, Norway, Prairie, Tipton and Vinton. The lith annual Lion relays are set for May 7, with another fine field. Then, on May ll Linn-Mar hosts a class A and AA district meet. Linn-Mar will also host the first East Central Iowa conference girls track meet on May 14. Prep Notes Another of the growing number of summer sports camps is the WISA junior and senior high program at West-mar college in LeMars. Sioux City Heelan grid boss Beanie Cooper heads up the football end and Hinton's Garie Risk the girls basketball division. Some of the aides will include Keith Markow of West Union, Richard Bangs of Garnavillo, Jim Harris of Maquoketa and Deb Houg, scoring standout from M-F-L will be one of the counselors.

The hour is late. Business and free enterprise are in deep trouble. The responsible business community 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--American 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 arid 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.) IO 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 etc.), socialism or welfare state? Which occupation group do you belong to and which political system would you prefer as an alternative to free enterprise? Y’ou 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, arid 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 to 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 arid 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 ail — let us renew the effort to make that vision come true.
