No Arms (Apr, 1947)

No Arms yet he enjoys the sport of bowling and even hung up a score of 96 at duckpins on his very first try in a Washington, D. C, bowling alley. The ingenious device is the invention of Harold A. Carlson, 45, who lost both arms as a youth in a railroad accident. He is shown above all set to swing a duck ball down the lane for a strike. A rubber suction cup, attached to his arm prothesis, holds the ball. At the proper part of the swing, a trip device lets the ball go. Carlson says that all parts for the invention were bought at variety and bicycle stores.
