Junior Editors Quiz on SWIMMING SWEETIE HE By Nadine Selfier QUESTION: How did man first figure out hew to swim? ANSWER: Swimming is a sport today but in the aarlieit times it was a necessity for just about everyone, In the days before man learned to build bridges and make boats, the only way to cross • river was to dive in and swim, if a log or raft wasn't handy. The first men probably learned to swim by watching animals in the water. Even today small children sometimes appear to be able to swim almost by instinct, using a stroke similar to that ustd by dogs. The stroke is called the "dog paddle." It was only about 100 years ago that people began to .take an interest in swimming as a sport, tl was included in the first mod ern Olympic games in 1896. Swimming the English Channel is eon sidered one of the most gruelling endurance tests in sports. FOR YOU TO DO: If you have not y«f learned how to swim, start taking lessons as soon as you can. You will find that swimming is a tot ot run. But never try to learn to! swim by yourself. Make sure you have someone to teach you. (Phyllis Baxter of Boothwyn, Pa., wins $10 for this question.
