The Oarswoman – Strength Magazine – June, 1923

If there are any limits to the possibilities of women in sports the world had better call for time out and gaze around in quest of them. Whether the gentler gender will ever attain the popularly termed Amazonian state in which they will compete with man on an equal handicap basis in the broad realm of athletics we hesitate to say. It is all so new and all that sort of thing. But, before you cast your vote remember that only recently a girl went out and busted the world’s long distance dancing record, wearing six partners into wilted submission en route.
