since they miss one of the major sources of exercise they would otherwise have.
Parents should see to it that they are not rearing flabby
muscled Americans, who will not be able to stand up to the demands of an
emergency, or military service, or severe adversity in time of crises, when the
country most needs these qualities in its citizens.
