Looking Back: Knucklin' Down for Sycamore Marble Championship in 1941

From the April 20, 2016, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."

"Come on boys!  Knuckle down and get that shooting hand limbered up for Sycamore's Marble Tournament to be held at Central School grounds after school on Friday.    The True Republican will present a bronze plaque especially engraved for the occasion to be presented to the champion shooter of Sycamore as determined by the special elimination contest open to all boys of Sycamore schools under 14 years of age."
