Sen. Toomey calls for halt to US aid to Egypt

Pennsylvania's Republican US Senator is calling for the suspension of American aid to Egypt after a string of clashes has left some 900 people dead.

Senator Pat Toomey says the US needs to send a clear message it disapproves of the killing of Egyptian civilians in the wake of the military's ouster of former president Mohamed Morsi.

Beyond the Bio: Former US Open Director Jay Snyder

When Jay Snyder was a high school senior in Selinsgrove, legendary Susquehanna University football coach and athletic director Amos Alonzo Stagg, Jr., came out of his house to talk with Jay and his friends.

"He said, 'you know, when you get old, you're not going to be able to play baseball, you'll never find enough people to play baseball, you can't play football, you can't play basketball,'" Snyder remembers, recalling Stagg's high-pitched voice. "'There are some sports you can play,' he said, 'tennis, golf and bowling.'"

Stagg then gave Snyder a tennis racquet, and the young man got the first taste of a sport where he would become a leader and its top official.
