American Continental Weight Lifters’ Association Notes – Strength Magazine – May, 1927

No followers of sport looked forward with more eager anticipation to a coming event than the followers of Ironia did to March the 5th.

A fine crowd assembled at the Philadelphia Academy of Physical Training for the occasion, but to our regret the affair was a great disappointment to us all, but I will speak of that as I come to a certain turn on the program.
