HORSESHOE COMPENDIUM

Page 92

     The crowds watching the games today are larger than in the twenties, so large now, that we estimate the total number of ever-changing spectators of six-day competition at 60,000, with 2,500 the most at any one time.
     The remarkable skill of Isais, Allen, Zimmerman and others of today has discouraged the poorer players to become spectators, so that the 105 entries of the 1923 state tournament have dropped to 88 in the Mid-West National in 1939.
