SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 4, THE DAILY C O U R I E R . OONNWLI.,S VIL,L,K;. fA. ! J AtjE SlfiV Biii After Osie Round as News of Tri-Town Community HAD VISITED FAYETTE COUNTY By S. M. DeHUFF As a general rule I never read literature, see ploys or movies, or patronize side show tents that are labeled "For Men Only." Never did (as a general rule); and it's a poor time to start at rrfy present age. i But, like rules o£ most any old! kind, there are times when excep- ; tions bob up with the one I'm i talking about. Like last Thursday | night, ior instance. Unexpected i t ' was too, for I was on my way home from a good movie, with absolutely nothing but staid thoughts in my mind when it just dawned on me that that was the night some of our business and professional men devoted to rccrcatiaon and exercise in thnt section of the "Y" that is used for such purposes. So in T barged, said "hello!" to several of my fellow railroaders, and on back to the door leading down stairs to the showers, pool and gym. And right there is where I encountered my first jolt. My first intuition \vns to rush to the telephone and ask the Mrs. if it was all right for me to keep going, for as I opened that door I beheld what first looked like a Tarzan, but seeing no ape or gorilla around, a second glance at the fello'-v facing me revealed him to be none other than Ross Medcalf. Tucking a soiled one tightly about his loins, Ross ordered me to get a h;-lf dozen clean towels from Clyde Burkctt, at the desk. I did--only to be introduced to some six or eighty j portly and middle-aged athletes a j moment Inter as "the new towel j boy." Being used to walking smack into just such situations, however, I wasn't flabbergasted for a moment. And so I found myself right in the very midst of a group of muscle- builders, embryo Johnny Weismul- lers, Tony Gcilcntos, etc., etc., in the form, or rather, the forms of M. M. Snyder, Carl Geer.cn, Patsy Giglotti, Gerry Davidson, Louie Barron, the above mentioned Ross Mcdcalf, and a handsome athletic looking young chap named Charles Eoycc. Most of them were in the pool when I first sighted them, spouting svater like whales, or gasping lor breath. Every once in a while one of them, Carl Geenen, for example, would make a really artistic dive, followed by one of the others who would insist on iirst striking the ·water with his stomach instead of his head. This style not only was distinctly not artistic, but--well, I might just as well have jumped in the pool myself, overcoat, hat 'n' everything, for I got just as wet--standing six ·feet back from the pool. But anyhow, all of those present had a wonderful time, for the aquatic exhibitions had followed a heated hour of volleyball which I feel I was fortunate in having missed. Yet I'm going down there -some Thursday evening--just as soon as Ross Medcalf gets a finer screen for the drain pipe in the showers and reduces the j size of that overflow pipe from the pool. For it all is one fine thing for business men after business hours, or would be if, as one o£ the fellows remarked, there were any business. And now a word to the women folks before I sign this: You haven't any reason whatsoever to feel morbid or disconsolate over the mere fact that you've slightly outgrown the "perfect 30" stage. Not after the lorms I saw Thursday r.ight. Off to Recuperate Lily Pons Lily Pons, Metropolitan opera star, ·waves good-bye as her train pulls out of New York for Miami Bench, Fla., where she wilL recuperate from recent illness. Senior (, E.
