Bowling, Present and Past – Strength Magazine – March, 1930

In the rear of a large room there is a big gathering intently watching the long, shining alley before them. As a rather portly, prosperous man slowly approaches the alley, carefully holding in both his hands a round ball, the spirited comments cease and an interested quiet pervades the room. The man takes a brief but critical look at the pins, crouches down with both feet close together, and then takes a short but quick run to the foul line; He leaves the ball go, it rolls along the polished floor and crashes into the pins with a noisy clatter.
