Poosh-pull at New Haw

October 15, 1961

"Now, mates," grunts the No. 1 man, John Brogan, "poosh!" and the eight members of the New Haw and Woodham tug-of-war club push with their feet and pull with their arms against the might of a churning tractor. In practice the tractor generally wins; but in real competition against humans, New Haw and Woodham's burly aggregation of plumbers, farmers, bricklayers, linemen and riveters has heaved heartily enough to win the 100-stone (1,400 pounds) amateur tug-of-war championship of Britain for five of the past seven years.
