We thought it ever so typical of 1950 . . . that the daughter of the motor boat enthusiast . . . should have watched this year's Harmsworth over television . . . But we must agree with her . . . it was the comfortable way . . . and never did an "in the flesh" Harmsworth thrill us as much as the second day when Slo-Mo-Shun flew before television screens . . .
