RENFRO DROPS CLOSE
DECISION TO OLIVER;
EACH GETS OVATION
Young-Foley Wrestling Contest
Ends in Dispute; Return
By offering three boxing bouts and
a wrestling match, the athletic department of the Junior College initiated
the first of a series of athletic
tests of the more manly nature, Some
300 spectators were on hand to witness the matches.
Ben Young, modern Adonis, and Pat
Foley, South End powerhouse, opened
the show with a wrestling match pack
ed with thrills. Young spotted Foley
about 25 pounds of weight, but what
the East End Terror lacked in sjze, he
made up in aggressiveness. Young's
experience was a valuable asset in
wearing down the powerhouse.
The victory was awarded to Young.
Foley voiced his protests and wanted
to keep on wrestling. Young was willing to continue, but the referee said
"no!" Foley was satisfied with
promise of a return match. Anyway
the girls got a thrill out of seeing
Ben's muscles, and they all call him
The first fight was between Hamp
Robinson and Melvin Feeney. This
was a nip and tuck affair from start
to finish with plenty of action being
crammed into the last two rounds.
Both boys tired near the end of the
bout, but refused to set a slower pace
—they chose to travel at top speed
until the final gong. Robinson eonceed-
ed about 15 pounds to Feeney, but a
fast, deceptive attack and superior infighting tided Robinson over. It
would be well to rematch these sluggers for a return go.
Harold Renfro and Jimmy Oliver
fought a rousing three-round battle
with Oliver getting the nod. Renfro
used his left to advantage to
an early lead, but failed to fathom
Oliver's crouching style in the latter
Both boys were evenly matched and
their daring tactics kept the spectators
applauding. The crowd enjoyed this
as the best contest of the evening, if
judged by applause.
The night cap saw Reo King and
Ray Morris box three rounds. Both
millers were too cautious to risk slugging and remained, more or less, in
their shells. For this reason the crowd
refused to grow enthusiastic. The referee's decision was awarded to King.
A Renfro-Morris match should prove
interesting, as would an Oliver-King
THE VERY BEST
(Editor's note—This is the very best
name that we could give to this Very
Best column since only the very best
in their respective (not necessarily respectable) fields are mentioned below.
The Very Best automobile driver is
Donny Aitken, alias Suit Case, alias
Slewfoot. His driving acumen is natural. Why? Because with one foot he
can apply the break and clutch ar thi
same time—thus reducing the amount
of time it takes to stop. At first
Suit Case stepped on the gas foot-
feed, too. But being a smart boy, he
filed off the accellorator—in Fact he
had to as he hit the clutch, break and
foot-feed with one stroke. But everything is jake now.
Israel Rabinowitz has the Very Best
wit. It must be that old Irish wit we
hear so much about. But Israel is a
good fellow and a good sport. We all
like him. He is a prince!
Somebody ought to crown him!
The Very Best dancer is Kitty Hurlock. Just for spite, boys try to mix
her up and fool the li'l Kitten. But
she follows too well. It just can't be
done. We bet she could even dance
with Elmer Hamilton.
The Very Best eyebrows belong to
Mary Bradley Anderson, otherwise
known as Woozy. Notice them sometime and see if they aren't darned near
Anyway Hamp thinks so!
The Very Best fruitless occupation
credits Le Roy Melcher as its originator. It's something different. Something new!
It's shaving the fuzz off a bath
The Very Best hobby is that of Pat
Foley. Pat collects $1000 bills. He
says he hasn't gathered any so far,
but that's his hobby anyway.
The Very Best ice box-raider is
Harold Renfro. Last Sunday night he
displayed his ability by stripping the
box while the rest of the party
put together jig-saw puzzles. After
cleaning out a mountain-sized refrigerator Harold started hollering, "When
do we eat?"
The Very Best wise-cracker is Fax
Moody. Last Friday nite at a dinner-
dance at Club Ramona after the clock
had struck two a. m., Fred Aebi was
going to imitate any bird that could be
Fax chirped up and suggested that
everybody imitate the homing pigeon.

Bud Steeger just informed us that
L. Lechenger's and Sweeney's jewelry
stores have both donated trophies to
be used as prizes for the proposed golf

Bud and Coach French have just
succeeded in organizing a golf and

happy- The clubs are a cinch to go
'er big. . . . Why shouldn't they?
It is being rumored here and there
that the Guild Savant is planning to
elect the girl who in the estimation
of the club best fulfills the qualifications for queen of the Junior College.
Just take a hint fellows. . . . You

that way. . . . Unless you elect 200

you male students would prompt Mr.

priceless addition, and it might not
