From the September 1948 magazine.

An Old-timer Says:

We Forget to Duck!

THE question of persons, who after two, three, even five or more years of continued sobriety in A.A., "having trouble," came up in a discussion meeting recently. How to avoid the "trouble" is an important question.

It seems to boil down to something like Jack Dempsey's reply to a questioner, after Gene Tunney had flattened him, who asked, "What happened?" The "Mauler" answered, "I forgot to duck!"
