The Mat – Strength Magazine – May, 1923

Since the STRENGTH Magazine was originally devoted to weight lifting, and still retains several thousand of its original subscribers, it is natural that I should get a lot of letters asking for more articles on weight lifting, and more articles describing the great lifters of the past. But then I have always had those requests, ever since we altered the maga-champions who have managed to outdo zine to its present form, and at least two articles on weight lifting or allied subjects appear in every issue.
