  • Description

    IT WAS MEN'S DAY TODAY (SATURDAY) IN LONDON. MANY OF THE SUPPOSEDLY FINEST EXAMPLES OF THE WORLD'S MANHOOD ASSEMBLED AT A THEATRE TO VIE WITH ONE ANOTHER FOR THE TITLE OF "MISTER UNIVERSE."
    ENTRIES CAME FROM MANY PARTS OF THE WORLD: BELGIUM, SOUTH AFRICA, GUADALOUPE, AUSTRIA, WEST GERMANY, BARBADOS, MALAYA, FRANCE, MALTA, JAMAICA, INDIA, HUNGARY, ITALY, IRAN, PORTUGAL, SYRIA, ISRAEL, U.S.A., TRINIDAD, HOLLAND AND KENYA -- AS WELL AS A LARGE ENTRY FROM THE BRITISH ISLES.

    THE AGES OF THE MEN COMPETING VARIED CONSIDERABLY, FOR APPARENTLY PHYSICAL PROWESS AMONG MEN IN NOT SUCH A TRANSITORY THING AS IT APPEARS TO BE AMONG THE COMPETITORS FOR THE "MISS UNIVERSE" TITLE. THE OLDEST OF THESE MEN WAS 34. THE YOUNGEST 18.

    ONE THING ALL HAD IN COMMON -- VAST CHEST MEASUREMENTS VARYING BETWEEN 42 AND 52 INCHES.

    IT WAS A DIFFICULT DECISION FOR THE JUDGES -- BUT THEY FINALLY DECIDED UPON EARL MAYNARD OF BARBADOS FOR THE TITLE OF "MISTER UNIVERSE" 1964.
