March 21 in history

March 21, 1952 - Green Bay Scouts get $100 prize won by Red Smith: Red Smith, famous for his sports column in the New York Herald-Tribune, spoke up for his home town while on a television show in New York and the Nicolet Area Council Boy Scouts of Green Bay were suddenly $100 richer.

Red, a native of Green Bay, and who in his boyhood was known as "Brick" and occasionally called Wellesley, was appearing on "Celebrity Time" as a celebrity. Since Red won the contest against the woman celebrity, he suggested the money be sent to the Green Bay boy scouts. This upset the carefully laid plans which called for the prize to go to Kalamazoo, Mich.

The prize was given by the B.F. Goodrich company and was delivered to Art Lindgren, scout executive, by Walter Dettmann, local Goodrich dealer. It will be used to purchase a new movie projector to train council leaders through visual aids.
