Football is first; there's no question about it. Swimming is second. In football, you not only have to develop the body to be tough, but you must develop looseness too. So you're tough for contact and loose for movement. Anyone who plays football is in better condition for the rest of his life.

Boxing. That's why we call it the manly art of self-defense. Boxing develops the arms, legs, back and stomach muscles. It develops reflexes to a keen edge. The good boxer has endurance and determination. Few persons would care to tangle with a Jack Dempsey or a Gene Tunney.

Football, baseball, basketball and tennis, in addition to being good body developers, also quicken the reflexes and teach timing.
