A Champion Who Makes Champions – Strength Magazine – January, 1930

Memphis, Tenn., is close to the old stomping grounds of the teller of this tale, and it so happened with me, as with many who toil and do their labors far from the land that is home, that last summer the desire to make a flying trip south and west came to me. Well, to make a long story short, being part Scotch and having some good Jewish neighbors, I decided to combine the pleasure of the trip with a little business, meaning that as I made the rounds my intentions were to pick up a few hot stories for the benefit of the old wallet. Columbus, Chicago, St. Louis, Memphis-that was the route, and in each of the first three burgs mentioned one particular name came to my ears whenever my listeners learned that Memphis was included in my proposed itenary.
