The Mat – Strength Magazine – September, 1928

This month I have the opportunity to show you three photos of the most novel act in the entire line of strong man showmanship. In fact, we never considered the possibility of anyone attempting such a thing. Captain Ringman Mach claims the distinction of having an act which is impossible for others to duplicate. There is no doubt as to its being the only act of the kind in the world. In the photos we are using you see him bending a bar of iron which is one inch in diameter; and in the other photo he is seen supporting his own body weight.
