BOXING MADE SAFE IF NOT SANEBY FACE AND,
. ' TUMMY PROTECTOR '
A straight left that dqes no damage.
t Teaching boys and girls to box is the hobby of Guy Otis Brewster,
physical instructor of the public schools at Wharton, N.;J. r
That his charges may get all possible exercise out of the sport and not s
be disfigured, Brewster has invented a wire protector for face, head and i
body that loots like a baseball catcher's mask and chest protector built in J
two sections. - )
The protector, Brewster says, does not interfere with freedom of move- t
meal and the pupils can swing, hook and lead straight rights and lefts, s
duck, block and sidestep with" perfect .freedom, while the blows landing I
upon, the heavily padded wire guards injure neither the one punched nor tha i
pne doing the punching. .
