This class is getting down to work. It was instigated for the purpose of training youths in the art of self defense and to instill good sportsmanship. There are 77 signed up, from 65 to 235 pounds, and the class meets each Wednesday night. The Odd Fellows, sponsors of professional wrestling here, back the boy program. Officers of the physical culture-wrestling classes are: president, Bill Poston; vice president, Walter Peetz; secretary, Ralph Thomas and sergeant at arms, Arthur Poorman. The committee on class problems is M.B. Craig, A.E. Smiddy, Everett Robbison, B.D. Crawford, Arlo Nelson, Pete Poe and Leonard Thomas. (G.D. Fronabarger photo)
