“I Challenege the World” – Strength Magazine – March, 1930

Today we hear and read much of the physical side of life, of athletic accomplishments and of marvels of human attainment. Almost every day we are made aware of the existence of a new figure in the world of sports, or of some one-time great person whose name makes its way once more to the front page for some reason or other. Especially at this time do we read of men well past the usually accepted “prime of life” who still are able to carry on and do their bit in close to their best form of earlier days. Taking the age of forty as a definite mark, we find many hale and hearty athletes on the shady side of it who still can do their stuff to a turn in their respective sports, to the envy and chagrin of many a younger man.
