M. Bernard Fox '38, the present Novice Figure Skating Champion, will seek the Junior crown at the National Junior and Novice Championships to be held at the Boston Arena Friday and Saturday.
Last Saturday night Fox made his debut before the college audience at the Garden, when he went through jumps, spins, and several dance steps between the periods of the Yale game. Although he has only been figure skating for three years, Fox has skated all his life, being, as he puts it, "a reformed hockey captain from Rivers School."
In the competition this weekend, he will team with Miss Joan Tozzer, daughter to Alfred M. Tozzer, professor of Anthropology, in an attempt at the Junior Pair title. Miss Tozzer and Fox went to England last summer where they gave many pair and individual exhibitions in London. The trip ended abruptly when Miss Tozzer turned up with a broken leg and Fox with a wrenched knee.
