Text Appearing Before Image:
somehow manage to keep in vigorous condition.Other men learn how to take care of themselves, learn what they can eat and how much they can eat, and somehow keep in good health. Those who do not possess a great deal of vigor and refuse to learn how to take care of themselves, usually pay the penalty very early in life and a tombstone soon marks their last resting-place. Of course, when indoor occupations are of an active nature—where they keep one moving around, either walking or using the various muscles of the body—they are much more advantageous than when they are in the nature of an office position. For it is an unquestionable fact that the body must be used. The muscles, when they lie inactive, are bound to become flaccid and weak, and ultimately diseased. In the next issue, I shall present additional photographs, and will refer to other occupations and to the general out-line of the body as required in the development of a perfect figure, which will no doubt be of interest to the readers.

Photo by Pictorial News Co. Contestants in Marathon Race. The winner, J. J. Hayes, is No. 26, in center of photo American Athletes at the Olympic Games of 1908 By Jay Bee ALTHOUGH details of the Olympic Games of the current year may be regarded as matters of history rather than news, it is nevertheless interesting to review the performances of some of the athletes who represented the United States in the stirring contests which occurred at Sheppard's Bush, near London, during the latter part of last July. While the keen degree of rivalry between the nations participating in the Games was responsible for much deplorable bickering, the feats achieved by the competing athletes were of such a striking nature as to enable the true lover of athletics to soon forget this fly in the ointment. This fact was well-illustrated by the splendid reception given to the returning athletes in New York City,and the numerous lesser celebrations thecountry over. 3S7 358 PHYSICAL CULTURE
