Wlij Girls Cannot Throw. [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 22 June 1901
Wlij Girls Cannot Throw. A great deal of fun is poked at girls because they cannot throw a stone or 11 snowball aud hit the person or thing they are aiming at. The general Idea as to why giiis cannot throw as well na boys Is that they have not acquired tho knack by practice as their brothers have. Another explanation is given by . a medical' man which tends to show that girls could never learn the knack, however much they tried. , When a boy throws a stone, he crooks bis elbow and reaches back with his forearm, and in the act of throwing he works every Joint from shoulder to wrist. The girl throws with her whole arm rigid, whereas the boy's arm is relaxed. The reason of this difference is one of anatomy. The feminine collar bone Is longer and Is set lower than In tho case of a malg, The long,, crooked, awkward bone Interferes with the free use of the arm. This Is the reason that girls cannot, throw well. 1

In order to ''make good" a desert must have sand and solitude and dreaminess, with neither past, present, nor. future. The great stretch of land, lying between this point and Yuma, a distance of about 70 miles, and extending to the base of the mountains which fringe the valley 40 miles to the west, has few of these characteristics. From Flowing Wells to Yuma, along the track of the Southern Pacific railroad, there is a stretch of desolation and sand which deserves the name of being' a desert, but at a distance of from three to ten miles west of the railrod the character of the country changes as abruptly'as it does between fertile Covina and the San Gabriel river wash. The railroad follows the real desert into Yuma because that was the only possible grade by whi...
