Swimmer Eats While Floating (Dec, 1938)

Swimmer Eats While Floating
In training for a projected long-distance swim from Atlantic City, N. J., to the water-front site of the World’s Fair in New York City, Norris Kellam, 381-pound endurance swimmer, is shown at the right practicing the technique of eating while floating on his back. During his swim, Kellam plans to lunch once every two hours.

    Quite a useful technique he’s got. I’ll think of it next time I step into the bathtub.

    I hope he’s got a waterproof lunch bag….and that sharks don’t like PB&J.

    I wonder where he planned on keeping the milk bottles while he was swimming.

    And that technique certainly won’t work in the open ocean, where the water isn’t glassy-smooth.

    “Kellam plans to lunch once every two hours.”
    It looks like he already does.

    ..and after, he needs the ‘Weil Reducing Belt’ (to be admired somewhere else on this wonderful site)
