Galles, a soft-spoken medical stu-
dent, hardly cuts the imposing figure
one would expect to see in a cham-
pion wrestler. In contrast to the
usual, burly, muscle-bound fellow
that the ordinary person pictures,
Galles is a revelation. But that easy-

going manner quickly disappears
when he climbs onto the wrestling
mat, as his record attests.
Last year Galles was one of the
mainstays of Michigan's champion-

From the
Musical Hitlf

It will warm your heart to know that a
service man or woman will be able to take
that precious trip home-maybe a last fur-
lough before sailing-because you planned
your year-end travel in advance.
You can help give the armed forces first
call on seats when they need them-and
be more comfortable yourself-by travel-

ing early in the month, and by choosing
mid-week days. It's wise, also, to take less
baggage, and to be at the terminal well
before departure time.
Greyhound is doing its utmost to keep
wartime travel moving smoothly - and
your continued good-natured cooperation
will help buses serve more people better!
