Indulging the Sense of Adventure – Strength Magazine – December, 1923

There are no “Polar Bear” swimming clubs in the Arctic. It is all very well for the hardy sons and daughters of New York and Boston, accompanied by newspaper photographers, to break through an inch or two of ice on a cool November morning and take an outdoor plunge, but in the Arctic there are neither photographers nor newspapers. Furthermore, the ice is usually a foot thick, and rather than break through it one prefers to melt enough snow every two or three weeks to make a ·bucket full of water, and take one’s “bath” Boy Scout fashion.
