1912: Women to Walk Off Fat

The Six Who Lose Most Will Be Entertained By Other Half Dozen.

Middletown, Conn., March 5.–Seeking to reduce their weight, a dozen of the most prominent women of Deep River, a few miles below here, have organized a club which will go upon semi-weekly walks during the next few months.

The club has been divided into two sections under the leadership of captains, and at the end of six months the half-dozen whose weight aggregates the most will entertain the other six with their husbands.

From The Evening Post (Frederick, Maryland), March 5, 1912.
