 On February 27, 1953, I phoned the manager of the Syracuse War Memorial (Leo Ferris) and made a deal for “WIll Alger and the Salt City Five” to play at center court at half time and before and after the NBA game between Syracuse and Indianapolis for $100 plus 30 cents for each admission over 4,000. (The “Broadway Clowns” were also on the bill. Unfortunately, only 3800 turned out.  Must have been the Clowns fault !  You can see the ad for the event on the final page of the Scrapbook.)
