A STONE, A BROOM, A BONSPIEL (Feb, 1951)
I kind of want to try to engineer a Hipster revival of curling.
A STONE, A BROOM, A BONSPIEL
THE OLD SCOTTISH SPORT OF CURLING IS WINNING NEW FANS IN AMERICA THERE’S none of the fire that goes with brimstone in this broom and stone game called curling—one of the oldest and most baffling man-devised sports on ice. In its essentials, this ancient Scottish pastime is like bowling or shuffleboard except that it requires much more finesse and subtlety than both.
You Can Now Play Real Golf at Home (Oct, 1921)
This word, “real”, I do not think it means what you think it means.
You Can Now Play Real Golf at Home
By L. R . PERRY
Henceforth you may play golf indoors and virtually watch the appearance of the shot and the extent of the flight through the air. A clean, straight-hit ball is a poem of swift, silent flight.

Children Learn to Run Typewriter in First Grade
NEW YORK school authorities are experimenting with a new phase of elementary instruction in the Horace Mann school, New York City. Children of the first grade receive typing lessons as a part of the regular school curriculum.
It is the theory of educators who are performing the experiment that such instruction, while children are beginning to learn the alphabet, will be exceedingly easy for them to master.
