We are interested in athletics because they are a great factor in building up the health of everyone who takes part in them. It was not so long ago that girls first began to play tennis, go in for track work, field hockey, and the more strenuous games. We can remember when the world was very doubtful of what the effect of such athletics would be upon women and upon future generations. Athletics for men or women are seldom more strenuous than the work which nearly everyone used to have to do to make a living, and we feel that they give much the same result of good health and great stamina that hard out door labor used to give. Besides that, you are supposed to have a good time in the process.
