Link to an article on the Betz-Moran pro tour--which lost money and convinced Jack Kramer that women could not carry a tour as the star attractions. Pauline beat up on Moran, often winning by lopsided scores.

Jack said that he and Bobby Riggs tried to talk Pauline into tanking or even "spraining an ankle", making her cry. When Alfa and I asked about this she didn't recall it.

Betz upstaged Gussie on opening night by wearing a leopard print skirt shown in the article.
