Hero's Afternoon
  • A young Chicagoan had one of those days that every American boy dreams about. He was the star of the big game, heard a great crowd shouting his name, basked in the adulation of friends, had a date with a pretty girl. In a week of big upsets—Purdue over Michigan State, Tulane over Navy, Iowa over Wisconsin, Rice over SMU, Washington State over Oregon and Georgia Tech's tie with Auburn—Dick Thornton of Northwestern played a major role in the biggest of all.

Arms, rope and a bell

48 Climbing a rope will tone flabby arms, trim the waist and flatten the abdomen

Last month Bonnie showed you how to start exercising on a rope, swinging on it and pulling yourself up from the floor (SI, Sept. 29). Now you are ready to climb it. When you first attempt the climb, don't try going all the way to the top. Even if you made it, you might burn your hands by coming down too fast. For incentive, mark the rope off in feet so you can see how far you've progressed. When you are able to reach the top, try placing a bell there. You can win the undying admiration of your child with your ability to ring the bell.

First start standing, later from sitting position on floor. Hold legs away from the rope. Ascend, descend hand over hand.
