A continuous "Rat-tat-tat-tat" echoed from the boys' gym every afternoon as members of the PUNCHING BAB CLUB tried to expand their muscles. Under the expert direction of Mr. Childs, this group speedily learned the art of self-defense. Daily practice on the punching bag developed sturdy bodies, perfect timing, and coordination. The bulging, rip- pling muscles of those super-men brought admiring glances and sighs from the feminine set. If you want a treat in store for you, be present when Mr. Childs gets into action on that bag. A few well timed punches and you think you are witnessing a sleight of hand performance, first you see the bag and then you don't. lt flies with the speed of lightning. Gne of the outstanding club members was Walter Fluegel, the president, who may soon be a match for joe Louis. You'd better get into practice, joe, if you vvant to hold that title. If perseverance gets us places, vve mustn't fail to mention K WHAT A W PUNCH! FENCING CLUB lTopl Row -l : A. Berman, B. l-lassell, S. Berk- owitz, j. Borenstein, L. Bonus, Row 2: N. Ullman, C.

Ham- mer the other avid biceps builders Steve Wollman, joseph Mercante, Robert Schweitzer, l-larvey Hammer and Ramsey Siegel, who fought for second honors in biceps expansion. lt is rumored their arm muscles developed as much as one tenth of an inch a year. 'lEn guardel" This cry was followed by the clashing of cold steel as the FENClNG CLUB went into action after a year's ab- sence from Davis. Although no blood was ever shed in their duels, these swordsmen probably imagined themselves as gal- lant cavaliers. At least it sounded that way from the din they created. Besides the regular foils the club had some long cav- alry swords, but most of the members found them too heavy to use. The weaker sex was very active in the club. Perhaps the girls were using this sport as a last resort to lose weight. Last year the club disbanded due to a slight accident. This year, however, it was reorganized and the musketeers really got into the swing of things. Page fifty-thrce
