Swimming-A Body Developer – Strength Magazine – December, 1925

Has it ever occurred to you that in learning to swim you afford yourself unending opportunities for pleasant recreation, and at the same time you gain and retain abundant health, develop your body thoroughly and symmetrically, and improve your whole physical appearance? Every part of your body is brought in.to action and in return it receives its rewards. Swimming gives one poise and improves the carriage. It develops long and smooth muscles-the kind that form a pleasing body outline, and at the same time proves best for speed and endurance-the two things most essential in competitive sports.
