Tulsa World – February 9, 1950
by B.A. Bridgewater, Sports
Friends of LeRoy McGuirk — and he has them in Tulsa by the hundred — could boost his spirit no end by sending telegrams of good cheer to him in the Little Rock hospital where he awaits the verdict on the operation that followed his eye injury.
It’s a bleak outlook for the one-time Tulsa Central and Oklahoma A&M star athlete who achieved brilliant success despite the handicap of having only one eye. If he is reminded that friends are rooting for his recovery it will help his morale and very possibly improve his chances to win the fight against infection.
Mrs. Virginia McGuirk is with her husband at Little Rock. She flew over yesterday immediately after being advised of his injury.
