V6 N. 44 Program Southern Counties (California) 1965 Coliseum Relays 1950, and a Recent Cartoon






Here is a program from the California   Southern Counties Track and Field Meet, sent by our friend Mike Solomon.    Note on Page 4  the reader of the wind gauge that evening was a young Lute Olson who spent a few years  in SoCal after leaving the frozen wastes of Minnesota and the Dakotas.  Lute would go on to coach basketball at Long Beach State and Arizona where he quickly went into the basketball coaches hall of fame,  and lastly a recent cartoon on the doping situation.
