Our Girls’ Circle – Strength Magazine – July, 1925

Bench Bentum, holder of four champion- ships in fancy diving, has ·lately entered our contest, and here’s what she has to say to other readers of Our Girl’s’ Circle: “I am a great reader of STRENGTH, believe all that it teaches, and am so enthusiastic about body culture that I would like to write a book on it. Being grateful for all the strength and health I possess, I would like to tell the world that the physical culture life keeps me that way. Swimming has always been a habit with me. I learned to take care of myself in the water at an early age. Other sports appealed to me, but nothing seemed to lure me like the water. I attribute my health and alertness to that alone.
