A matzoh eating contest to determine who can eat the most matzohs at one sitting will be held next week at a hotel in Hurleyville, New York.

There have been pie eating, spaghetti eating, milk drinking and similar tourneys, but this is said to be the first time that an attempt has been made to find out ju##low many matzohs a pe## can eat at one time.

Some twenty people are expected to enter the competition. The winner gets a silver loving cup and the title, “W## champion matzoh eater.”
