Greenwood Lake, N. J., Made
Over For Contender Billy Conn
By FRANK ECK
AP Newsfeatures Sports Writer
GREENWOOD LAKE, N. J.,
Feb. 19.—Billy Conn is going to
like his camp in this little village.
The place is being made to order
for the Pittsburgh Kid who has
plans for lifting the world’.s
heavyweight boxing champion
ship resting on the brow of Jcc
Louis since 1937.
When the Irishman arrives
April 1 to begin strenuous train
ing for his June 19 date in Yan
kee Stadium everything will be
shipshape, even to the 40-foot cab
in cruiser which undoubtedly will
have the run of the lake.
Teddy Gleason, the man who
got Conn interested in this sec
tion, is responsible for what is
tantamount to an entirely new
fight camp. The site is more fa
miliarly known as Brown’s Hotel
Since the name has been carried
down through generations.
$25,000 Refurbishing Project
Gleason has shelled out $15,090
and will spend another ten grand
before Billy begins belting spar
Teddy’s first job was to spruce
up the hotel interior. He had the
exterminators in twice during the
first six months, painted and re
modeled all 20 rooms in the ho
tel, brightened the restaurant with
palm trees and indoor awnings
and had numerous portraits of
fighters painted in the barroom.
Even President Truman has befeh
'‘dope in oil”.
Gleason is building 20 steam
heated cabins with a shower in
each. Six of these cabins will b?
used by Conn’s sparring mates.
Dance Hall Is Indoor Gym
The indoor gym, used occasion
ally for Saturday night dances,
has a full-size ring and will hold
more than 1,000 spectators. At
present the makeshift dressing
room is a coat check but that sit
uation will be remedied.
Indoor drills will be held dur
ing rain and cold. An outdoor
arena seating 1,200 persons will
be built between the hotel and
the southern tip of the lake.
When the summer season hits in
full stride Gleason plans to pro
Conn's living quarters will be a
smart looking chestnut log cabin
less than a half-mile up the road
and back from the concrete high
way. The cabin cost Gleason $3,-
500 but recently he turned down
an SB,OOO offer to sell the place
when Billy fell in love with it.
The structure, complete with all
modem conveniences, took Glea
son six years to build in his spare
Plenty Of Room For Roadwork
The setting is ideal for road
work, too. There are numerous
paths and, if Conn feels the urge,
ht can run around Greenwood
Lake. It’s only nine and a half
nules long but a good 20-mile hike
around it by foot.
Gleason, a checker’s delegate
for the International Longshore
men’s Association, says Conn be

Who's Who of the Week
This issue we’ve chosen as our
week’s celebrity, Joyce Mulberg.
She first saw the light of day
January 21, 1929, in Key West.
Joyce came to Key West Hi in
the 9th grade and we put her to
work right away. 7 She was then
elected Treasurer of the Student
Council while still a “Studious
Sophomore” and earned herself
the title of “Honest Joyce”. Sho
then was appointed chairman of
the Recreation Committee. This
was really a big job as the Annex
had just started to function. Joyce
took over and before we knew
it, it was a big success. One of
the best things about it was that
we had a juke box all paid for.
How she accomplished this, we’ll
never know. Like Alexander
Hamilton, she just had the gift of
being a great financier. She
proved to the rest of us that she
was capable of holding the fort
and doing it well.
We couldn’t let her go by then,
so we just elected her president
of the Student Council. It can
safely be sa:d that she has been
one of the biggest little presidents
we have ever had.

Weekly examinations of regis
tered prostitutes helped control
disease, but it is, he said, prac
tically impossible to control the
situation involving casual pros
titution in hotels and rooming
houses. MPs and French police
make raids frequently on suspec
ted premises, and between 150
and 200 girls are picked up week
Fitch said soldiers picked up
in such raids were given preven
tive disease treatment and inter
viewed to obtain possible sourc
es of disease. The women are
taken to hospitals, examined and
then, if found free of disease and
inscribed as prostitutes, are re
leased. Unregistered girls who
are not diseased are turned loose
with a warning and a strong
sugestion they register as pros
titutes. If they are picked up
three times they are forced to
register. Diseased women are
held for treatment. ,
Although the VD rate for
American soldiers in Paris is
“slightly lower” than the rate,
for instance of soldiers in Ger
many, a great many, of the cases
don’t show up until the men who
were in Paris on leave get back
to their units and Paris is believ
ed to be the greatest single
source of VD infection on the
continent Fitch says.
