Bowler [Bowling Writers Association Female Bowler of the Year 1973, 1975U. S. Bowling Congress Hall of Fame 1976, Professional Wowmen's Bowling Association Hall of Fame 1987]

When I was on the ladies' tour in the '60s, I would go to tournaments with three balls - one for oily lane conditions, one for dry lane conditions, and a spare ball. You have to learn the ups-and-downs of competition and just put it behind you, and I was always able to do that.  Sometimes it was no fun, but I had more ups than downs in my career.
