Extraordinary Gymnastic Achievements – Strength Magazine – August, 1925

Gymnasts and acrobats come and go, but the great ·artists, like the Comets, always leave their trail behind; but that does not say that others could not be found who would be able to accomplish the same feats. In this article I shall endeavor to point out how it was possible to master a number of feats which the leading gymnasts of the world contended were impossible of accomplishment by any normally formed person. A number of years ago I was rated as one of the top-notch acrobats of America, when I met with an accident. This set me back considerably; in fact, it changed the whole course of my career that I had mapped out for myself as an acrobat, dancer and gymnast.
