Grim and Bear It
June 19, 1961
This grimacing group is a new crop of weight lifters in an area—high school athletics—that has grown precious few. Recently the sport has been blooming on Long Island, where the kids have discovered that hefting bar bells is fun (well, sort of) and the resultant muscle lends prestige to strolls along the sands of Jones Beach. Here, arduously at play, are {top to bottom) Jack Wartell, Mineola; Neil Oransoff, Jamaica; Richard Decker, Sewanhaka; Stan Nowosielski, Port Jefferson.
