Mrs. Hellen Naismith Dodd after hearing one of our SA basketball players speak to the church she attended, wrote this to our president in 1975.
The statement “a basketball in one hand and a Bible in the other,” inspired me to write this note.
My father Dr James Naismith would be so pleased if he could know that basketball was being used for some good purpose and not just to make a few people rich.
I’m sure you know he was an ordained minister and wanted to work with young people. Enclosed is a check to help this young man on his SA trip that I heard in my church in Baldwin.
