Should Remain Gentler Sex, London
London, June 3. Whether athlet
io girls become healthy mothers is a
problem now being hotly debated by
woman doctors here.
The question arose in an acute
form when the pioneers of the recent
agitation against athletics for girls
held a conference in London and con
demned games as tending to be inju
rious to tht next generation. '
To such dimensions is the cam
paign against feminine athletics
growing, that it Is considered likely
many colleges will shortly revise
their games curriculum and that the
present craze of violent exercise
among all classes of British girls will
be struck a fatal blow. ,
, The chief blow to the "muscle
girls," as they are known here, was
dealt by Miss Cowdroy, a college
principal who has had experience of
girls for three generations. She said:
The girl trained to hockey, cricket,
football and tennis suffers In after
life. Sometimes the child suffers and
sometimes the mother, and some
times one of them dies.
The Victorian girl was better
physically than the modern girl.
A great many girls brought up on
present methods of physical training
are bad tempered and soured in later
Equally sweeping in her criticisms
was Misa Radmar, head of a large in
stitution for the physical develop
ment of girls.
"The typical athletic girl of to
day," she said, with her wide hips
and over-developed chest, is not el
egant or fine. Big muscles are out of
place in a girl. She should be edu
cated to do the soft and gentle things
Medical support was given by Dr
Arabella Kenealy, the celebrated doc
tor. "Athletic women produce fe
male offspring mainly," she said,
"Seldom do they have sons, and these
are apt to be puny and delicate."
On the other hand, there is an In
fluential body of medical opinion in
favor of athletics for girls. Dr. Mary
Scharlieb. the famous woman sur
geon, cays: "Much of this criticism
is nonsense. Athletics are excellent
for girls, provided care is taken over
"These criticismB are merely part
of a plan to get women back to their
old-fashioned atmosphere," com
ments Dr. Jane Walker. "Athletics
are exceedingly good for girls. The
lie about puny children was nailed to
the counter years ago. Investigations
were made concerning the families of
athletic women who had been to Ox
ford or Cambridge. It was proved
that they had had beautiful, healthy
children and plenty of them. The
trouble Is that some timid mothers
are beginning to be fussy about their
girls, and there is danger of healthy
exercise being interfered with."
Dr. Sloan Chesaer, another well-
known woman doctor, said there was
a tendency to over emphasize the
value of athletics for both sexes.
Boy and girls can play . pretty
much the same games until the age
of 14 or 15," she said. "Girls seem
to be as good as boys until then, hut
after that age the boys become relatively-Stronger,
and other types of
exercise appear to be better for girls.
Dancing is a much better form of ex
erciso for girls than Swedish drill,
and I am also in favor of curythen
lcs." , - ;' -
The view of big business concerns
employing huge numbers ot girls
(most of whom in this country pro
vide their personnel with grounds
for games) Is expressed by a member
of Lyons, the teashop concern. '
"The most efficient members of our
staff are those who indulge in
games," he said. "We have never
found that the health of the business
girl suffers from tennis, hockey or
Even the staidest London newspa
pers think the subject worthy of edi
torial comment. The Pall Mall Ga
zette complains that there exists a
class of women school teachers who
want girls' schools run on the lines
of boys' schools, especially in the
playing field. "Sex Jealousy is at the
root of the mischief. The muscular
development produced in girls by vio
lent exercise may be undesirable, but
more than any question of -eesthetics
is the risk of , nervous strain and
physical exhaustion, and the prob
ability that the child-bearing capaci
ty, of the woman of the future, will
be seriously curtailed.". .:
