e In Steamer Fire Athlete's Heart
Theory Is False,
Brace Declares
There is no truth in the age-old
theory that athletics enlarge the?
heart and cause "athlete's heart," ac-
cording to Dr. William M. Brace,;
acting-director of the Health Service.
Athletics don't enlarge the heart
because experiments have shown that
it really contracts after intensive ex-
-. ercise. Studies made with the elec-
tric cardiograph and the X-ray have
proved this fact, said Dr. Brace.
There is no such thing as "ath-
~ j lete's heart," continued Dr. Brace.
"Athletics will not hurt a normal
heart, but there is danger if the
person has a slight valve leakage,"
he explained.
Students who participate in coin-
petitive athletics are given very
thorough examinations to be sure
that they have no heart diseases.
Those who have defective hearts are
permitted to exercise mildly, but

stairs to reach the auditorium en-
