Silent Martin employs deaf mute
seconds when hes fighting in the
ring. One broke two fingers the
other night Bhouting encouragement
to his employer.
Now that it has been officially de

world's series or the presidential
election the world may again breathe
at ease.
Bill Shakespeare once said youth
will have its fling. If there's any
lurking suspicion as to the truth Of
this statement just ask Eddie Plank.
All but two of the champion horse
