THE SUPERIOR EXPRESS Thursday, August 23, 1973 "il iii ! itl i !!!!!i i i ill i !i Notebook Larry Weeke, manager of the Superior Chamber of Com- merce has a problem dividing 15 football tickets 200 ways. The South Platte United Chambers of Commerce allocated Superior 15 tickets for the SPUCC trip to Lincoln on Sept. 29 to see the Cornhuskers play the University of Wisconsin. With more an 200 members, Larry says the tickets will be sold to the first 15 chamber members that ask. There was a large group present in the Superior City auditorium last Friday evening for the gospel concert present ' ,d by the Rev. and Mrs. Marvin Jenkins and their family of Sharon Springs, Kan. A talented family, I'm sure they presented a fine evening of musical entertainment but because of the auditorium's deplorable acoustics I couldn't hear the program even though I was there. The building's acoustic quality is a disgrace to the City of Superior. After 35 years of complaint, it is time something be done with the hay barn. I don't have the magic answer but I find it hard to believe something can't be done. As a starting point, why not close that vast void above the stage? There hasn't been a stage production in the building in recent years which needed the background storage area. Secondly, the addition of sound absorbing material on the walls might just improve the acoustics enough the audience could understand at least half of what was said on the stage. Injured in Iowa auto accident Eddy Ackerman of C "orge, Iowa, who has visited at the Max Darling home several times the past year, was seriously injured in an auto accident last Wednesday. It is thought that he had gone to sleep. His car hit a culvert and he was nor found until about five hours after the accident. Both legs were seriously injured and he suffered a fractured collar bone and shoulder along with many cuts and bruises. He is hospitalized at Sioux Valley Hospital at Sioux Falls, S.D. Ragene Darling and Ackerman are college room- mates. Don Deterding is honored by Quality Buying Guild Don Deterding, vice president and division manager for men's furnishings and sportswear of Ben Simon & Sons of Lincoln, has been selected by the Quality Guild Foreign Buying Office to make a month-long buying trip to Europe. Regarded as an honor in the retail clothing industry, Deterding's selection is the first of its kind in the Midwest. Each year the guild selects three of its top merchandisers to make the trip to do buying for its 100 members. Deterding has worked at Ben Simon's for 20 years. His wife accompanied him to Europe. Deterding is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Edgar Deterding of Deshler. He is a brother of Owen Deterding of Superior. His sisters, Mrs. Stanley Elledge and Mrs. Ed Comer, also live in Superior. Firemen answer Our Everett Lillich for being ap- pointed by Gov. Exon to the state highway commission.
