The Cassius Clay Ernie Terrell round of fisticuffs
Monday night seemed like a good chance to study the art
of boxing coverage third or fourth hand.
This writer has never been in nor seen a live, sanc
tioned boxing match. He therefore claims no greater com
prehension of the sport than anyone else who formulates
his opinions through the radio reports and through tele
vision's Wednesday Night Fights during the 1950's.
But here are the comments heard, believed to have
been heard and, in some cases, should have been heard
during the 15-round decision that went to Clay:
"Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the super-match,
pitting World Boxing Association champion Ernie Terrell
against World Religious Boxing Champion Muhammed
After assorted reactions and appropriate comments by
Clay, the match was underway.
"Clay lands a left, now a right . . . Terrell's left low
er eyelid is puffed up . . . it's starting to puff closed now,
but his trainers are working on it between rounds. . ."
"Terrell's right eye is bleeding now . . . he looks like
he came out of a butcher's shop . . . his face looks like he
walked into a mixmaster. . ."
"Now Clay's got him backed up near our microphone
corner . . . Terrell's face ... if you'll pardon the expres
sion again . . . looks like he walked into a mixmaster. . ."
"WHOOPS . . . something just sprayed our table from
the ring ... it looks like bio. . . excuse me I don't feel too
welL . ."
And then there was Ernie's big bid:
"Terrell landed a left to the body . . . Clay's hurt. . .
and now a left to the nose of Clay . . . he's HURT."
"Now, folks don't get us wrong . . . Terrell's not reallv
getting to Clay . . . another left to Clay's nose . . . HE'S
HURT . . . CLAY'S HOLDING HIM OFF ...
"But don't misunderstand, ladies and gentlemen.
Clay's got him where he wants him . . . TERRELL LET
LOOSE A HYAMAKER THAT JUST MISSED . . . that
could have been the match."
The best part of the match, to this writer, was not
the "sport" of boxing, but the colorful description we get
of a colorful event even if that color is usually blood red.

said, "All things con

Looking ahead to the con

Coach Geier said he would

He's a college
Tom Hall U Just another gay thai like to play
baseball mora than most. Since he's working his
way through college, he doesn't hvs much time
left to study. Maybe even less than you. That's
.why Tom enrolled in our Reading Class.
Tom admits that for eight weeks his schedule was
worse than usual, his baseball was at stake. Worn
in just had to wait!
Now that the course Is over, Tom Is still no egg
heador professor. Baseball's still his first love.
But there is one difference Tom now reads 10
times faster. He finishes his work before it
finishes him! And he's still eligible for the team.
.Tom Hall Is not a mental freak, nor is he a natur
ally fast reader. He learned this revolutionary
technique of rapid reading at the Evelyn Wood
Reading Dynamics Institute. He is one of more
than 250,000 graduates in the United States.
Tou may not learn to read quite as fast as Tom
Hall (and then again you might). But the nation
ally known Reading Dynamics Institute guarantees
that you'll at least triple your reading speed with
good comprehension ... or receive a full tuition
refund. Just to show that Tom Hall is not unique,
here are the beginning and ending speeds of recent
graduates In this regions

Utah school teacher discovers technique of
Evelyn Wood first observed dynamic reading 18
years ago when a pra'uor at the University of
Utah read her term paper at an amazing 6,000
words per minute. Mrs. Wood's curiosity caused
ber to look for other exceptional readers, and over
the next few years she found 50 poople who could
read faster than f ,500 words per minute, with fine
comprehension, outstanding recall and great read
ing satisfaction. She was now sure it was possible
to read faster than anyone bad thought, but the
question of how was not yet answered. It took 8
years of foil and research, working with naturally
fast readers before she began to find the answers.
Eventually she developed a techniqut whereby
the average student was able to learn to read 3
to 10 times faster. She taught ber method at the
University of Utah for three years, refining it even
more. Further studies were conducted at the Uni
versity, of Delaware, and tha first reading Dy
namics Institute was opened in Washington, 0. C.
ia September, 1959. Since that time institutes
have been opened In ST cities throughout the
country, and national enrollment for the Bourse
bas topped 250,000.

Comprehension Is stressed
Af a recent teacher training conference, Mrs. Wood
emphasized that dynamic reading is nothing like
the skimming techniques commonly used In speed
reading courses. She said, "Skipping words Is
dangerous, as yon don't know whether or not you
bavo skipped a word which could change the
whole meaning of tbe sentence.
"You read five times faster," she pointed out, not
by reading every fifth word, but by reading five
times as many words in the same amount of time.
Mrs. Wood emphasized that using her technique
of rapid reading, every word on the page Is o jfed,
