  • OUf Twisting Belts REAllY WORK! That's because we make 'em simple. They can't be damaged by dropping because there's no ball bearing race to jam! And you can expect long-lasting depend-ability because our newly-designed twisting belts are made of indestructible chrome plated steel. Yet they're extremely lightweight - just 3 Ibs. - much lighter than other twisting belts. Naturally, they' re adjustable to all waist sizes.

    Our deluxe model has the added feature of an outer tubular ring that rides in five deep-grooved, free spin-ning sheaves. It "REALLY WORKS" too!

    Twisting Belts are just another reason why Everyone's Going Gym Master -because Gym Master has everything you need to go on!

  • but you probably wouldn't buy another!

    I t's no great engineering feat to make one product cheaper than another. You cut quality a little here, you eliminate a feature there .. . and pretty soon you have a product that can sell for a cheaper price.

    The same could apply to a Nissen parallel bar. For example, our exclusive Adjusto-Lock height and width adjustment feature could be replaced with the same low cost jam lock mechanism which other manufac-turers use. Ordinary paint could be substituted for our present maintenance-free nickel chrome finish. Small black rubber base pads could be used in place of Nissen's unique non-marking pads with the ad-justable leg leveler. Unbreakable Perma-Wood fused lamination top bars could easily be replaced with old fashion hickory bars, and on and on and on.

    True, such a parallel bar would probably still qual-ify on an "or equal" bid, but somehow, without those important features , it just wouldn't be a Nissen . Can you afford anything less than the best?

    NOTES FROM THE EDITOR:

    IT'S OFFICIAL: The MODERN GYMNAST magazine has officially affiliated with the UNITED STATES GYMNASTICS FEDERATION. As the official publication for the USGF the MG will devote a portion of its pages to Federation news and promotion. However, the MG will not be limited to USG F material only. We will continue to report Gym-nastics in the USA and all around the World (including the AAU) with the best and most complete coverage possible. NEW STABILITY: With this official affiliation with the USG F the M G will have a new stability and potential growth pattern never before possible, as the USGF repre-sents more then 20,000 High Schools and 700 Universi-ties amonq the seven National Associations which make up its' formal membership. Between your editor and the USG F we intend to keep the M G rolling and growing and in the mail the first week of the month filled with news and instruction.

    OUT OF THE RED: Our sincerest thanks to Mr. Bruce Hopping, Chairman of the New Jersey Foundation for his generous grant to the USGF to aid their work in GYM-NASTICS for the youth of America through our publicat-ion The MODERN GYMNAST. With this Grant in Aid we were able to clear up our past indebtedness and with the added continued support from the USG F the path ahead is bright for the MG. THANKS: We want to thank all of our readers who by their continued subscription and donation support helped to keep the M G going through the difficulties of the past year. Along with our many MG readers who continued to show faith in the MG by promptly renewing their sub-scriptions, 305 readers made 'Keep the MG Rolling' do-nations of from $1 to $75 to' help keep the MG alive, for a total of $1,511.00. Nine others showing a vote of confid-ence paid $100 each for a lifetime subscription to the MG and become a member of our Special 'MG 100 CLUB: (Which by the way is still open for membership) Thanks to all of You, Your continued support of the MG is very much appreciated.

    COLOR COVERS: With this new Firm Footing we expect a new subscription growth that will soon make it possible to once again have beautiful Color Covers, more pages and other special improvements. We are thrilled with the future ahead for the M G and hope you share our excitment just as wonderfully as you shared our problems. Thanks, G.S.
