THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF SPORT

DOWN IN DEFEAT, UP IN VICTORY

This is an article from the Dec. 12, 1955 issue

As Tony DeMarco's seconds desperately try to restore him to man high in the air to complete a tableau of defeat and victory consciousness, Carmen Basilio's seconds joyfully hoist their last week in the Boston Garden (for details see page 45)

DUCKS COME COLD ON THE PRAIRIE

Fighting a near blizzard, 17° temperatures and a 40-mph wind, eight Minneapolis business executives spent three days hunting ducks along the southeastern edge of Lake Manitoba, Canada. Their reward: 149 plump mallards and other ducks, plus plenty to talk about until next autumn

A BIT OF GAMESMANSHIP

Politics is the art of belonging (inclusion as opposed to exclusion). Last week three Democrats let it be known that they are citizens of the world of sport. With a big elephant in their sights, they were pictured with bags of wild turkey, sailfish and deer

Fishing candidate Adlai Stevenson, in Miami to drum up support for '56, holds up six-foot, 45-pound sailfish he landed aboard Clarence Fine's yacht, Mark-O-III, after a 28-minute battle. At left is yacht skipper, Captain Charles North.

Dead shot candidate Estes Kefauver (left) gives once-over to 10-point buck deer he bagged on the Stonewall, Texas ranch of Lyndon B. Johnson, Senate majority leader and a long-time friend. Kefauver got the deer with his first shot.

Shooting candidate Averell Harriman of New York and happy host, Representative Frank W. Boykin, exult over 22-pound wild turkey Harriman downed with his 12-gauge Purdy shotgun on the Congressman's 100,000-acre preserve at McIntosh, Ala.
