McCurdy, is finding enough park

"President Eisenhower should

"The greatest of all partici

ket billiards exercises shoulder

muscles strong, besides keeping
its player active on his feet."
This and the fact that it is a
mental challenge, a scientific

its becoming a favorite sport
and one of the most popular col
