Michigan's former athletes are keep
ing in the limelight in various ways;
some are making touchdowns in the
world of politics while others again are
putting the, law over for three bases,
but one of the mnethods adopted by a
gridiron star, of the seventies is be-
lieved to be unique. Irving K. Pond,
'7S, of Pond and Pond, achitects of

Martha Cook buildings, is somewhat
of an acrobat. Here is what a recent
issue of the Chicago Daily News has
to say of him:

ed at the White Stockings park on the

on that occasion that he did thirty
backward flip-flops down the football
field. And he has been doing acro-
batics ever since.
Quality Desired Now,
Today he isn't able to do thirty in a
row, it's true. Now he strives for qual-,
ity, rather than quantity in acrobatic
feats. In th old days Mr. Pond looked
upon flip-flops and handsprings as
means of expressing his feeling of
youthful exuberance. Now he has
discovered that acrobatics mean more.
"Acrobatics are the poetry of exer-
cise," he said. "Games and other forms
of athletics are the prose. Exercise is
valuable to me not only as a means of

is an aesthetic pleasure to be gained
from a practice of the art of acro-

muscles produces a spiritual reaction

"Here, look at this little exercise,
just from the viewpoint of fun!" The
young old man gave a spring which
sent him high in the air with his hands
upraised, turned over gracefully and
lit neatly on his feet.
"This is fun," he said. "That's why
I do this stuff. Not simply to keep
young. Every morning before I get
dressed I go through a few simple ex-
ercises. They help to keep me-fit, too.
But I don't look upon them as a dis-
tasteful duty. I get as much fun
stretching as a cat does."
