thanks john, peter yates directed me to an article that barton hovarth wrote regarding the aau sanctioned mr universe.bob hoffman changed the judging panel after the first night prejudging as ray schaefer was the clear winner. klisanin was 4th. he replaced hovarth with paul anderson who was not an aau certified judge.basically hoffman was exposed as a liar and a fraud. he violated numerous aau rules. the article was lengthy but a real eyeopener regarding hoffmans manipulation or bullying to get his own way.hoffman was a judge and on his scorecard he had 4ft 10 and 123lb vinci beating ray schaefer. when the results were anounced and schaefer got 2nd to klisanin the audience walked out. as to why hoffman sent ray schaefer to the nabba universe instead of klisanin, hoffman said he did it to prove that even the aaus second best was good enough to beat any of nabbas best. thanks peter for directing me to the article.
I believe that this was an AAU sanctioned Mr. Universe contest because Chuck Vinci entered it and he continued to compete as a weightlifter. Ray Schaefer placed second and then went over to London and won the NABBA Amateur Universe. The contest was highly controversial and part of the York/Weider "wars" of the 1950s since Klisanin was considered a "York guy" and Schaefer a "Weider guy".
