FRAME TEACHES SWIMMING (Feb, 1933)

FRAME TEACHES SWIMMING
Novices at swimming may acquire confidence with the aid of an odd mechanical device, just introduced in Germany. The swimmer lies on a floating frame supported at an adjustable height in the water by pontoons, and propels it forward by placing his feet in a pair of stirrups and kicking. Thus he learns the proper motions of the legs. Oar-like paddles may also be operated with the arms. The hinged propelling fins open automatically when pushed backward against the water.

    So much simpler than holding on to the side of the pool and kicking…
