LOVE'S MAGIC SPELL
Yet in the matter of scorekeeping tennis
is still using that "love" which means noth

Love in this context is supposed to be a
corruption of the French I'oeuf—the egg. The
French they area funny race but not more

And while most of the grunt-and-groan
biz is play-acting it requires something more
than stage craft to pick up a 300 pound hunk
of man twirl him over your head and toss
him into a corner.

Michigan Ail-American played scholastic and
