Cobb and Speaker and Alexander the
Great have faded for the time and

Swimming has retreated hastily to
the south and along with advancing
icy winds is already heard, the metal
lic ring of steel blades on blue ice.
For winter sports will soon be with
us witn uieir health boosts in clear
eyes, red cheeks and healthy muscles.
