ABSTRACT
The author relates his experience upon doing his stint in the 1956 Olympics in Melbourne, Australia, as a reporter. He remembers that during that event he was assigned to cover the athlete's living quarter in the Olympic Village. One particular day as he was wandering around the edge of the practice to scope some stories, he said he has heard a series of unearthly mechanical shrieks coming from the direction of the saunas. It was later found out that one sauna of the place is at fire.
