And in this corner, we have….John Bence!
As a professional wrestler, Bence toured the United States throughout the 1950’s, ’60s and ’70s.
Bence received the Navy Cross after he was wounded in Okinawa while serving for the U.S. Navy. Returning home from action, he went on to earn his Master’s degree in Personnel and Guidance from Springfield College.
Juggling graduate school and a professional wrestling tour of New England is no easy task but John Bence is a walking model of success.
Bence however is not the only highly sought after wrestler named John to come out of Springfield College. WWE star John Cena also earned his degree from Springfield and has gone on to star in the ring, on the big screen and in the studio.

T-shirts for one dollar!!
It was common place to see advertisements like this throughout students newspapers during the 1950s. This Arrow ad was found in the November 3, 1950 issue of The Springfield Student.
Arrow originally started as a detachable collar company. and at one time sold over 400 types of collars, to help men who had a hard time washing and ironing those stubborn dress shirts.
Although the detachable collar fad has come and gone and shirts are no longer one dollar, Arrow remains a strong contender in the men’s apparel industry. Their products can be found in stores like JCPenney and Kohls.

The major menaces on the highway are drunken driving, uncontrolled thumbing, and indiscriminate spooning. To put it briefly- hic, hike and hug. The Springfield Student, Friday November 3, 1950

Holding on the Offense! Five yard penalty, results in a first down! 

Here is a 1982 guide to referee signals during collegiate football games.Although some modifications of the signals have occurred, mostly all are still used today, throughout all levels of football.
