THE CHEATING SEX
As a supplemental note to this article, even the genteel sport of croquet provided opportunities for cheating, and by the fair sex at that. One gentleman complained with some disgust that a young lady acquaintance of his would cover her croquet ball with her skirt and then move the ball with her foot six or eight inches for a better shot.
This last issue, number five, has made a believer of me. The tense drama of the sport, the game, appeared as never before in the picture taken right after Henry Thompson's home run. This picture deserves the right to be titled "Baseball." The pictures and story on Himalayan climbing were astounding, to quote Hollywood terminology; they made me want to pack up the old duffel bag and set off. Congratulations, gentlemen, on a job well done.
In my defense, I can say that I don't think many husbands ever expect to find their wives a "Cover Girl."...
It was plainly evident, at least to me, when the television camera was trained on Olson's corner between rounds that this individual would get up from his ringside seat and wander over to a position between Olson and his second. In his left hand he carried a cylinder, from which a flexible tube or tubing went to his right hand. He would then raise his right arm between Olson and his second, and, I thought, blow oxygen in Olson's direction, over his face, and a couple of good, deep breaths would help, no fooling.
I wonder about the legality of such procedure and have never heard mention of it before or now. Would you care to comment?
