The Posing Contest of the Association of Bar Bell Men was finally decided upon in the early part of January. The contest was first announced in the August issue of STRENGTH and attracted a few hundred entries. A large number of ineligible photos were received; some of these were professionals, while others who sent in very good photos failed to qualify by joining the A.B.B.M. To qualify, it was necessary to be an A.B.B.M. member and an amateur.
