"Parrot Foot" Born of poor parents, weak] and spindly-legged, ' derided j by playmates with the epithet "parrot foot," Segura had aj drab future to look forward to* at best. He learned real early! in life to live with adversity,' so, as he gained stature as a tennis player, 'it was nothing for him to have to spot his opponents 5 to 8 inches in height and reach. Pancho has always had to! give way to his opponents in the natural qualities that • are associated with tennis players because he was not blessed with any to begin with. He just took what he" had and set out to do the best that he could with it. ALASKA SCIENTIFIC PROSPECTING CO.
