• Short Summary

    Joan Tawser wins the US Women's Figure Skating Championship.

  • Description

    Titles read: "ICE BATTLE - SKATE CHAMPS VIE FOR US HONOURS".

    Pennsylvania, United States of America.

    Various shots of Joan Tawser (sp? Tauser?) skimming across the ice in the United States Women's Figure Skating Champions. Commentator tells us this 16-year-old Boston girl won the title. Joan then pairs up with Bernard Fox (? could be Box?) to skate around the ice, winning the 'Pairs Competition'. The couple pose with their trophy cups.

    Note: I cannot find definitive spelling for the names mentioned in this item; there is no paperwork for this issue.
