The Mat – Strength Magazine – November, 1926

In the fall of 1924 a number of students of body culture approached me on the subject of setting apart one night each week on which they could all gather together and discuss, technically, the various sides of exercise, anatomy, and physiology, as an educational feature. It had been agreed among them beforehand that if I would preside over the class they would get together, and accordingly I agreed for much the same reason as they did.
