Tops In Youth Fitness Test Periodically through the first nine weeks of school, four hundred Algona 4th, 5th and 6th grade public school boys and girls have been busily engaged in taking the National Youth Fitness test. This test is sponsored by the American Association of Health, Physical Education and Recreation, and is under the local direction of Mrs. Linda Hanson and Jim Welton. The Youth Fitness test is given annually in hundreds of schools throughout the United States. Standards have been established indicating the degree of achievement which should be attained at each grade level. Shown above are most of the fifty-eight children of the Algona Public School system who received their badge which is symbolic of satisfactory or superior fitness achievement The test was given here for the first time this year. The test included seven items, the 50 yd. dash, 600 yd. run and walk, Softball throw, chin- up for boys, flexed arm hang for girls, sit-ups, standing long jump and shuttle run. Both Mrs. Hanson and Mr. Welton were pleased with the number of students receiving awards and expressed hope that fifty per cent of the boys and girls attain their goal when tested again in the spring. Fitness tests also benefit the teachers. They tell how children in Algona compare with those all over the United States. They also note specific physical weaknesses which aids in choosing the type and amount of physical activity for classes. fc-Algona (la.)
