GOLF DEFINED. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 27 February 1915
GOLF DEFINED. On the.terrace of a country club, overlooking a green dotted with sheep a group of non-golfers were taking tea. A male non-golfer, who took his tea through a straw, said thoughtfully "Golf Iiight be defined as billiards gone to grass." Spleen on the green I'd call it," said a female non-golfer. "Or the last flicker of the dying fire of athletics," sneered the young football player. "The misuse of land and lan guage," suggested a tennis champion. "N'o, no, you're all wrong," said a fa mous angler." Golf is simply a game wherein the ball lies badly and t" player welL"--Louisville Times.

A GOOD EXERCISE FOR THE BACK. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 27 February 1915
A GOOD EXERCISE FOR THE BACK. A good exercise for the spinal muscles consists of the follwing movemcnts:-Stand erect, with the feet together, and rise upon the toes, then gradually sink down by bend ing the knees until the thigh and calf are doubled upon each other. The trunk should be erect all the time, and especial attention paid to the spine, keeping it straight. If a person will remove the clothing and hang by the arms, all tension is removed fromn the spine, and a second person can determine if the spinal curvature can be removed or not. If, when hanging in this posi tion, the spine is straight, there is no reason why it cannot be cured, but if it is crooked when hanging, there is little hope of doing mnore than keeping it from growing worse, and this is very imiportant. In the department of medico-gvmnastics in a large gymnasiumn , this is the way they examine such cases. A teaches says:--"Alny miovenents which do not present any outside resisting force (meaning apparatus) ca...
