How to Get Into the Bathing Beauty Class – Strength Magazine – December, 1925

Having witnessed the Atlantic City Beauty Pageant of the past season, I am convinced that the whole United States, if not the entire world, is becoming more interested than ever before in the perfect human physique, be it male or female; with, of course, a slight leaning toward the female. This great wave of national or world interest may be due to· the scantier clothing of the present day and the one-piece bathing suit. But whatever the cause is, I feel it is having a good effect on the physical well-being of the nation. This should mean better health for the country as a whole.
