On health care reform

March 7th, 2010  |  Published in History of Bowling

Health care reform is an old issue in the bowling world.

In 1935, Indianapolis proprietor Jess Pritchett proposed a plan “whereby the sick and disabled bowler can be taken care of by hospitalization.”

Smoking controversies also are nothing new to bowling.

In a 1939 column, Mort Luby Sr. suggested the ABC Tournament’s smoking policy should be altered — to allow smoking on the lanes.
