The Mat – Strength Magazine – November, 1925

I suppose it is the same old story of the law of the opposites, or the general dissatisfaction that always exists within us all in regard to our personal makeup. The tall wish they were shorter and the short wish they were taller. The fat man feels he is built like a cart-horse and the thin man feels he represents a rail. No one is ever completely satisfied. In my estimation it matters little whether a man is short or tall, providing he is built as he should be according to his height. The human body is always a figure of beauty and will draw attention on sight, irrespective of the inches, if the physical lines are there, balanced by an erect carriage.
