Miss Kellermanns Class Is
Now Ready to Enter Water
Do Not Be Discouraged by Your Very JFirst Few
Moments in the Water; Remember to Keep Your
Feet Close to the Surface.
ARTICLE NUMBER NINE
BY ANNETTE KELLERMANN
International Record-Holder and Star
of the Wm. Fox $1,000,000 Film
"A Daughter of the Gods."
Pupils in The Yuma Daily Examiner-Annette
YOU CAN NOW GO IN THE
WATER for your first practice,
In six lessons I have laid down for
you a careful and. accurate course of
instruction. Article No. S, printed
yesterday in The Yuma Daily' Exami
ner was the final "Dry-Land" lesson
I will yager that many of you after
reading yesterday's lesson have not
waited till now to go and put my in
struction into actual practice. Those
of you who already have slipped away
and entered the water to see just how
practical my lessons have been may
have had a little difficulty at first.
Going alone or with one or two close
friends does pot give you the same
degree of confidence that you have
when you go in large parties; a dozen
or a. score of would-be swimmers all
Confidence is always greater in the
individual when you are a member
of a groupe. Do not be discouraged
for a moment because you may have
found it difficult or impossible to
swim with your very first stroke.
When you enter the water today
place your head in just the position I
have taught you and keep it there
SO THAT THE MOUTH IS JUSTi
CLEAR OF THE WATER. Don't
mind a few little splashes. They -will
ooooooooooo o o o
not hurt you. If you cannot stand
the rush of water about the ears wear
a rubber cap. I always do. Then
too, perhops your bathing suit is too
Now I will explain WHY you feel
as if you were sinking, . I told you in
my lesson yesterday that you must
keep your feet UP UP UP! Until
you do this your head is bound to
sink, for the weight of your legs held
at the angle you are holding them"
now, isy dragging you down. So the
higher you hold your legs WITHOUT
LETTING THEM COME OUT OF
THE WATER the sooner you will
overcome the fear of being drawn
DO NOT move, your hands and arms
too quickly. I gather that some of
you will not be able to swim as yet,
because your every movement is
jerkey and not COMBINED.
Try to overcome this jerkiness and
bring the movement of your arms and
legs together so that both motions are
made at the SAME TIME.
Keep the old canvas belt and have
somebody tow you about until you
overcome the overabundance of jerky
movements. . ,
Under no circumstances use a life
belt or other apparatus for floating,
While some are reliable, others are
not, and it would be a very sad thing
for you if after trusting yourself to
one of these to find yourself suddenly
sinking through some defect of the
apparatus. Trust .yourself to the old
canvas belt and the strong hand of
