Folks who are taking bowling
lessions in Grand Rapids, Mich,
feel that they are mighty lucky
to have an instructor like Marion
Ladewig. Because attractive Mrs.
Ladewig has won five , national
game championships. The very
youthful - looking, 123 - pound
grandmother has a 17-year aver-
age of 197.

According to Mrs. Ladewig1,
nearly every beginner is a po-
tential tournament bowler. In her
words, "Their future depends on
ability to follow instructions and
their desire to make good.”
Mrs. Ladewig joined a begin-

other members of the Grand Ra-
pids girl’s softball team. She fin-
ished the season with a 140 aver-
age. Her scores improved rapidly
after that, going to 168 in her
second season and 182 in the
third. And she’s pleased as can
be that her average for the past
17 years is 107.
According to Mrs. Ladewig,

Women’s match games at Chica-

tours are thrilling, the champion
lady bowler says that actually
she’s happy to return home after-
wards. And she really enjoys her
work as instructor.
In her words, “It’s a little like
play — being instructor, counter
operator, sometimes s w e e p-
ing and once or twice filling in
as pin setter.”
