8,000 HIKING CLUBS
IN GREATER NEW YORK
They Swing Along Highways and
Through Woods in Groups
of Varying Size*
New York.-One must walk nowa
days to be In the swim. Statistics
gleaned from the out-door departments
of the newspapers, from tho Hoy Scout
and Campfire Girls' organizations,
from tho Y. M. C. A. branches; and
kindred bodies, from scores of amateur
athletic clubs and from the leading
dealers In sporting goods, indicate that
"Best Walkers Make Best Citizens,"
Says Mayor of Now York.
today there oro no less than 8,000
hiking clubs In Grentor New York,
with a total membership of more than
n quarter of a million mon and wom
en, who ore keeping themselves in the
pink of condition and experiencing the
real joy of living by getting regularly
out into tho open country with no oth
er means of locomotion than their God
The city of New York has taken offi
cial notice of the movement. On three
occasions recently. Mayor Hylan has
congratulated the boys and glrlg of the
public schools upon their enthusiasm
In taking up the new sport of hiking.
In 1I1B dedication of the great new pub
lic playground In tho Dronx the other
day Mayor Hylan extolled the athletic
tendencies of the boys and girls and
Impressed upon them that there was
no better or more profitable way In
which they could pass their vacations
and utilize their holidays than by the
excursions into field and forest of their
walking clubs. He gave the same
message to the Amateur Athletic Un
ion of Brooklyn a few dnys later, and
whon a club of Kent Side boys nod girls
visited him at city hull preparatory to
a bike to the tomb of Roosevelt at
Oyster Buy ho assured thom thnt tko
best walkers among thuin wouid make
the best citizens.
Walk and Be Well
No less enthusiastic a champion of
the walking game ls Dr. Royal S.
Copeland, city health commissioner.
"The benefit to health and the safe
guard to morals to bo found In long
walks," snld Dr. Copeland In an In
terview, "ore too apparent to speak
of them. If one takes long walks alone
lt ls well, for he walks the rond of
health, but If ho tokes long walks In
company lt ls better for be adds the
tonic of companionship to his exercise
Walking ls tho one form ot exercise In
which Ibero ls the minimum risk of
overdoing lt. In short, I consider
walking the most b?n?ficiai of nil exer
cises and lt ls never out of season."
"Never in my life time," said Ed
Ward R. Wilbur, manager of a nation
ally known sporting goods store, "havo
I known such a demand as now for out
door garments and shoes and stock
ings and appliances for the tourist's
luncheon box. The rapid spread and
tremendous popularity of tho walking

Indispensable to hiking-thick walking
shoes that allow lots of room, thick
woolen socks and clothing that will

a canvas or leather musette bag, such
as the soldiers used in France.
The Cow In th? Knapsack
MTo get tho real benefit and Joy out
of hiking luncheon should bo carried
And prepared and eaten In tho open.
Bread and cheese, a few slices of
bacon, sumo coffee, a can of condensed
milk, and a cake of chocolate fur
nish high-powered fuel for the hiker
and aro readily and happily assimi
lated even by those who In their pre
hlklng dnys were nffilctcd with di
Restive apparatus so feeble ns to bolk
at crackers nnd milk. Fortunately for
the hiker, he can replenish his simple
Inrdor nt any cross-roads store and
provide himself with thc most nutri
tious and appetizing food in a form
that can bo conveniently carried.
"No single development in tho prob
lem of food transportation for tho
hunter, fisherman, hlkor and all lovers
of tho out-of-doors can compare with
the gift bestowed by the man who
first found tho way to make con
densed milk, thereby putting a dairy
?In every mnn's knapsack. Before long
there will bo a national association of
hikers, and Gall Borden will be Its pa
tron saint. Such an nssoclntlon could do
much to encourage the spread of tho
j most beneficial and universal of all
! outdoor pastimes, map out Interesting
routes, secure tho establishment of
.abettors, rost-stntlons, and camp sites
at suitable locations, and Insure the
rights of pedestrians on country
