Mr | Adams discusses, among other things, the curious fact that so few people realize that bananas are not "ripe" until the ekln has begun to turn brown. Mr Adams says: "There is a popular delusion that the banana has ripened when It turns from Us original green to a golden yellow, end those thus deluded decline to touch this fruit when dark spots appear In the yellow skin of the banana. "The banana is not fully ripe when it is yellow. This change from green to yellow is the first outward appearance of a chemical process Incidental to the ripening process.

HINTS ON BREAST STROKE SWIMMING Outing Magazines: Use th« arms _ guides and balances, rather than a chief means of propulsion. The powe of the stroke should com* from the legs, especially at the time of snap ping together Palms of hands should be sllghtl} turned In. making tha arm stroke and not brought back flat against the wat e.- as an oar would be used In rowing This is for two reasons: CD Less effort Is needed for the arm stroke. (2) The slightly turned palm helps to keep the body up and on the surface. While legs are together In the 'glide" position, feet should be extended and pointed In order to lessen resistance, t The extension of the feet Is don4 at the time of snapping the legs together. The foot should be fixed and as broad a surface as possible presented is hen extending the legs. It has well been said that the breast stroke is the hardest stroke to master and should be put last In the list to learn, but the stroke has many excellent points in Its favor, and should have a place In the repertoire of the expert swimmer. Once mastered It be-comes a source of pleasure and usefulness to the aquatic athlete, who has In mind the acquiring of all-round ability In the art of swimming. A Wine Child.
