Skating: The Healthiest Sport in the World – Strength Magazine – January, 1930

King Winter is again with us bringing his aid de campes, the frisky Jack Frost and the beautiful Countess de Snowe, and our thoughts turn to those hardy men of the North and their favorite sport, skating-reminding us, also, to draw forth our dust laden steel blades and again participate in what can unhesitatingly be called, without fear of contradiction, the healthiest sport in the world. Most of us have only limited opportunities to enjoy this sport but some of these hardy Northmen athletes almost live on their skates and become so adept with them that the thought concurrent in our minds is whether these wonderful skaters could likewise excel in other sports if they had the opportunity or inclination to do so.
