Kids' Korner: Calling All Super Sleuths!

Just over 100 years ago, long before Nike Air Jordan and LeBron shoes, the first sneaker was created by a rubber company. It was a no-frills, everyday, knockabout canvas shoe with a rubber sole. By 1917, another rubber company produced the first sneaker just for basketball. In the early 1920s, an Indian basketball star endorsed the shoe and soon his name was added to the logo; today this centenarian athletic footgear continues to be one of the bestselling basketball shoes in history.

For a chance to win $25, do the following:

1) Find and name the logo of the first-ever sneaker and the logo of the first basketball sneaker hidden in the magazine.
2) What was the basketball star's name on the logo?
3) How did sneakers get their name?
