NAIA·Names Cooch Lantz to Holl of Faine

Dr. Charles P. Lantz, athletic di-
rector and coach at Eastern from
1911 until his retirement in 1952,
is one of three persons in the na-
tion named to the Helms Athletic
Foundation Hall of Fame for out-
standing contributions to college
athletics and football in the Na-
tional Association of Intercollegiate
Athletics .

Dr. Lantz received the honor at
a Special Awards Banquet held De-
cember 20 at Little Rock, Ark. Al-
though complete in.formation was
unavailable at the time the Eastern
Alumnus went to press, W. A. Her-
ington, athletic director at Culver-
Stockton College and chairman of
the Hall of Fame selection commit-
tee, announced unofficially that the
other two selections were Dr. D. M.
Nigro ·and Ernest Mehl, both of
Kansas City, Mo. Three football
coaches and four players were also
to be named to the honor roll.

The awards ceremony marked
the first time the NAIA had made
Hall of Fame selections in football.

Dr. Lantz was nominated for the
honor by District 20 of the NAIA
and was a unanimous choice of the
selection committee, according to
Herington .

The banquet was held at the ·
Marion Hotel in Little Rock and in
conjunction with the December 22
NAIA Alumnium Bowl game be-
tween Montana State and St.
Joseph's of Indiana.

Under the NAIA proposal to
name three contributors to the Hall
of Fame, the following criteria was
used in the selections:

1. The contributor must be one Dr. Charles P. Lantz

tion worthy of national honor in physical education for men with- ficials for the Interstate Confer-
