Stretching To Be A Fireman (Nov, 1941)
Stretching To Be A Fireman
GINO FRANCESCHINI, New York City, was only 5 feet 6-1/4 inches tall and had to be 5 feet 7 inches to qualify as a fireman. He made the neck stretcher shown above. When measured, he still lacked an eighth of an inch. He hit himself on head to make a bump—and still couldn’t make it.
