Text Appearing Before Image:

Figure No. to. This is an excellent pyramid for boys, as itlooks good, is easy of execution, and is not dangerous. Theboys facing each other can help those on the hands either bystarting from knees or by holding feet. It is not so hard tohold as a hand balance as it is between this and a front leaningrest. Eight or ten boys can form the circle; finish by the topboy jumping down in center; those on hands front roll, thosestanding back roll and center neck spring. SPALDINGS ATHLETIC LIBRARY.
