 LAWN SWIMMING–IT’S THE NEWEST HOT WEATHER SPORT!

Have you tried lawn swimming?

It’s the new hot weather sport.

Try it!

Put on your bathing suit, assume the attitude of a mermaid on the front lawn or in your back yard and sing out, “Splash me! Come on an’ splash me!”

If some member of your own family doesn’t answer your appeal, try your next door neighbour. Some one will gladly handle the hose for you.

It’s a sport for men, women and children, with no age limit.

The Day Book [Chicago, IL] 4 August 1916: p. 29

Mrs. Daffodil really has nothing to add….
