Free Swimming Lessons For Women and Children Comparatively few women and children know how to swim, Nevertheless, every summer thousands of them board various water craft for pleasure or transportation, or go bathing, not realizing that they are in danger if unable to swim. As a result,, drownings are of daily occurrence, due in almost every instance to the victim's inability to swim. . To stop or at least minimize this loss of life, is the object of this offer by The Enquirer to teach its readers how to swim. The Enquirer has employed Miss Marie Pichel, who is not only an expert swimmer, but has had remarkable success in teaching large classes of women and children how to swim. In addition to providing absolutely free swimming lessons for women and children The Enquirer has made arrangements with the management of Chester Park by which the price of admission to the Park and the Bathing Beach, which is 25 cents, will be only 15 cents during the hours for these free lessons, for a woman or child who presents the Admission Coupon printed herewith, subject to the regulations of the park. Miss Pichel will be at the beach daily except Saturdays and Sundays from 8 to 12 o'clock in the morning, and she will have expert swimmers as her assistants. ..
