New Machine Teaches Swimming
LEARNING to swim is easy with a machine invented by Al Kallunki, swimming coach in Oakland, Calif. The beginner lies down on the machine. The legs fit into curved extension. By turning the handles, the beginner’s arms automatically follow the movements of the crawl stroke.
The cranks also operate the leg extension. The legs are pushed upward and back in proper time to teach the pupil to associate kicking with the arm movement.
