Balance Your Way to Health – Strength Magazine – December, 1925

The interesting subject of hand-balancing. takes me back to my seafaring days, when I first came into my own as a hand-balancer. In my travels I visited many European cities, and had the opportunity of seeing many noted foreign hand-balancers and gymnasts perform. Often I would go back aboard ship and practice to emulate their feats. Hand-balancing got to be such a passion with me that even when the ship was under way at sea I would continue on with my practice. An interesting incident in connection with this happened one day when the sea was being lashed to a fury.
