Racing jockeys have the right to wear advertisements and logos on their uniforms. Why not? Few, if any, sports don't have some form of commercial advertising on their clothing, equipment, or strategically placed signage of all sorts. I don't know if bowling was the first, but it was an early approver of the idea, going back to the 1900s and before. In the booming days of bowling during the major part of the 20th century, bowling shirts were akin to walking billboards. The earliest advertisers were beer, cigars, bowling equipment, bowling centers, banks, amusement centers, and many an industrial organization, as well as a good sprinkling of religious organizations. But what seemed natural in bowling was viewed with scorn and deprecating smiles by too many outside of the game. That didn't stop the bowlers and their sponsors. When there were more than 10 million league bowlers, almost all had bowling shirts and the better teams also had slacks, and often jackets to match. Most of the sponsors were local---restaurants and bars, gas stations, barber shops and beauty salons, banks, insurance agencies, all types of stores, and even politicians, but many of the top national firms also joined as sponsors. For a comparatively small sum, money for league entry fees and shirts, a sponsor could have advertising for 36 weeks and five or six bowlers and their families boosting a product or service by word of mouth as well. These days bowling shirts in low average or regular house leagues are mostly gone---and in some leagues there are more bowlers wearing hats than bowling shirts. There was a number of bowling apparel companies that gave bonus prizes for bowlers who rolled a 300 game while wearing a shirt, belt, skirt or slacks of a cer-

tain firm. The prizes ranged from $100 to $1,000, mostly in savings bonds. That wouldn't be a good idea in this time of high scores. Teams went out of their way to come up with beautiful and often garish shirt designs. Embroidery was an accepted art and could be costly. So at times the writing on the back cost more than the shirts. The International Bowling Hall of Fame and Museum has a classic collection of shirts spanning almost a century of male and female uniforms of all sorts. When the PBA first started its tour it was anything goes and bowlers could wear any kind of shirt advertising almost any product. On TV only the bowler's name, very huge, was allowed. The PBA then went to no names on shirts and a bowler, according to his finish, was allowed to choose from a variety of colors, and those following had to choose different colors. For a time Ernie Schlegel and Goupy Troup were the kings of surprise uniforms, from tux styled outfits to those with each leg adorned with a different color. It all settled down and most will agree that bowlers are dressed neat and colorful these days. The big laugh is that almost every sport was critical of bowling because of bowling shirts with names and now just about every sport has adopted the: same practice. They should have known. Back in the 1890s era the top teams wore stiff starched, long-sleeved shirts and ties when they competed in important matches. Anyone who went through that can't be all bad. Where are all those millions of shirts now? Few are still being used some rest in closets and attics, but most were sent to needy people around the world when for decades clothing drives concentrated on them.
