In remarking on his findings, Sir Adolpne Abraham, president of the British Association of Me-' dicine and Sport and honorary adviser to the British Olympic teams since 1912, stressed the fact that woman's endurance is phenomenal in such things as channel swimming. Ru «» Mlllett It's not just in the feld of sports that woman's endurance is remarkable. What middle-aged man who prides himself on being In tip-top physical condition could keep up with his little woman on one of her all-day shopping trips What young husband could take over the Job of caring for four or five children in addition to doing all the marketing, cooking, cleaning, washing, etc., for a family and keep it up week after week and month after month without calling for help? What man could play the dual role of full-time earner and full- duty homemaker as so many women are doing today? What man could stand the exertion of being as many persons in a single day as a lot of women have to be? Look at Mrs. Brown who starts the day off a housekeeper but before It Is over is temporarily a chauffeur, purchasing agent, clubwoman, hostess, and at the same time mother to her children, and companion to her husband. Most women never get to test '.heir endurance in some great feat like swimming the English Channel. But any woman who has lived through the years when her children were small, and money scarce, has passed a real endurance test.
