OLD PROS (CONT.)
The letter from Yeoman 3rd Class William D. Gunnels (19TH HOLE, NOV. 3) was well written. Concerning the idea that this "could be the era of the old men," Gunnels went on to cite the cases of several old pros who are still atop the heap.
However, I must heartily disagree with him when he exclaims over Ray Robinson as the "old man of boxing." How could one pass over the personage of Archie Moore? Indeed, Moore is even older than Robinson, and it should be noted that he is still fighting men above, rather than men from the next lower division.
Robinson found rich cream indeed when a man named Basilio plodded across his glory trail. Here was a man who was not a middleweight but a natural welter (when all is shed and done). They billed it as youth vs. age, but since when is 31 considered infantile?
An unfortunate error in the Jantzen advertisement of November 3 named me as head of the Aspen Ski School, which is operated (and has been since 1946) by Friedl Pfeifer and Fred Iselin. I am in charge of the ski school in the new Highlands area at Aspen.
