Sports in the 30s & 40s

I turned into seeking to reflect consideration on something to put in writing approximately, and I located a letter in my correspondence report from my first cousin Doris Coffman.

She sent this to me on my 90th birthday.

This letter just reminded me of how hard it becomes returned then to get your chores finished and still have time to pop out for basketball and football.

One of my chores was milking a cow, which was pastured in a big lot on Wilderness Trail Road, just beyond Edwards Avenue.

My uncle, Tipton Edwards, had a private approximately one hundred fifty yards down Wilderness Trail Road, and the pasture ran past his residence. He resided there with his wife, Elizabeth, and their kids, Donald and Doris.

One of the gates I used to get to my cow changed into no longer too far from the house, so they have been adequately aware of my milking habits. Doris turned into pretty young when I used to do my milking. However, she saw enough or heard her parents speak enough to author this letter called Unrequited Love, penned as although it’s far written from my cow I used to exploit.

I assume it’s miles a traditional! Mahalo to you Doris.

This is from “My Wonderful Cow named Bossie!”

Now that I am delighted and satisfied to be in critical Iowa with the Bull of my dreams, a concept that it is high time I write you this little word. It might also surprise you to pay attention from me in spite of everything this time, but I’m not as spry as I have been in the beyond. I’ll be celebrating my birthday quickly! It’s to be my big nine-oh, how long has it been. But enough of that.

Glennie, you will in no way know what it meant to me to have our near dating. I nevertheless do not forget as it changed into the day before today how you would come to me in the late evening just to present me a bit remedy from my heavy load. I fondly recollect status with the aid of the gate, in no way without a doubt understanding while you’ll come but simplest that you might be there with me once more. I knew which you had been there to attend to me.

Over the years, each time I could see a bread truck, I could think about you as my non-public Honey Krust! I just knew which you genuinely predicted me to come running while you will open that gate. I’ll say it changed into a touch puzzling while we may want to see each different at nighttime and you would come lower back about 6, within the morning, for a touch bit extra! But, and you knew this: I cherished the smell of that bread whenever I ought to get it. It had become quite an obsession with me in that when I heard the truck coming down the lane, I merely knew that relief becomes on the way!

Please inform Carolyn that she has nothing to worry approximately. I”m happy in Iowa and I’m sure the younger guy of my desires is delighted to be right there in Richmond.

Fondly,

Bossie

Thanks, Bossie and I are glad you’re happy, you, in reality, earned it.

Love, Glenmore

Going back to what I said about it being hard to play sports activities and also get your chores completed, I changed into not alone in that. There have been lots of athletes who had tasks to do again in those days.

Buster Maggard was one athlete that I performed with who became All-State in soccer and changed into a perfect basketball participant and later went to EKU and made all-conference in soccer numerous times.

Buster’s dad had a grocery keep on Big Hill Avenue, and I’m sure Buster spent a variety of times sacking potatoes and assisting his dad in the store and still had sufficient electricity to play ball.

There have been a variety of younger athletes who labored in family businesses, and farm children especially had quite a few chores. Sports returned than were crucial to us as there had been only a few deliberate sports for teenagers. Most folks were good pool gamers because the pool room became a famous region to hang around after college.

Madison High had an fantastic fitness center, but they saved it close on weekends. Once in a while, a person might reduce the twine on a window, and we would climb a tree outside and undergo the window and play basketball till they stuck us.

Ouch!

I’m satisfied instances have modified.

It is so exquisite now that we have such a lot of little league sports and facilities for basketball, soccer, baseball, and soccer. I merely hope the younger human beings take gain of them and get the ones heads out of computer systems and mobile phones.
