(Harry Kalas Jr., son of Westmar college President and Mrs. H. H. Kalas, is now sports director of KTRG television station, Honolulu, Hawaii. Following is the letter received from him by the Daily Sentinel, with his comments about Dave Gunther, former Le Mars high school and State University of Iowa basketball star, who is trying for a berth on the professional San Francisco Warriors basketball team.) To the Editor: The Los Angeles Lakers and the San Francisco Warriors are here in the islands for an exhibition series in preparation from the coming NBA season. I have had a chance to spend a great deal of time with our mutual friend, Dave Gunther, who is making a bid to become a member of the S.F. Warriors I thought you might be inter ested in Dave's progress, the series itself, and his chances of sticking with the Warriors. The Lakers won the series, i taking three out of four, but| not without a real struggle. Elgin Baylor is everything they! say he is and more. More pertinently, Dave was very impressive in the four games. While playing only about a quarter in each game, the Hawkeye flash scored in double figures two out of the four games. He is very happy with the i Warriors and has a great attitude. The affable and modest Dave is well-liked by his teammates and the feeling seems to be mutual. When I asked Dave about Wilt Chamberlain he could speak only in superlatives about the 7' 1" wonder. Coach Bob Fcerick had this to say about Dave and his chances: "Dave has looked as good as any of our rookies thus far. His chances are as good as any of the rest of them in making our ballclub. Dave is an excellent shooter." Actually, his statements were pretty non-commital, but this is Mr. Feerick's first year as the Warrior coach and he's had a chance to see his men in only the four games here, so he explained that he could not give a more conclusive answer. So, let's keep our fingers crossed. It's my humble opinion that Dave is one of the top rookies on the Warriors and will make the ballclub. I certainly hope so. i I just thought you might be I interested in Dave's situation 'with the NBA club. He's enjoying his stay here in the islands very much. My best to Mr. Batman and the Meises who have had the opportunity to visit here . . . if anyone else from that area is planning a visit here, please feel free to call me. I shall be more than happy to do anything that I can for you. Aloha, Harry Kalas.
