He Hangs Upside Down In A Trapeze-Type Exerciser
That's me with hanging upside down in a trapeze-type exerciser I invented in 1944 after doctors at the Mayo Clinic advised me to hang upside down daily to clear my lungs of fluid. It's the result of a respiratory irritation I got while baling wheat straw.
I hang upside down by my toes and heels on the trapeze for four minutes a day. I also mount in the back of a pickup and take it to local parades, hanging upside down. I intend to participate again this year.
I like to say the exerciser will help me make 100. Incidentally, I'm practically there al-ready - I'm 92 years young. (Richard M. Lamp, Rt. 2, Box 187, Blair, Neb. 68008-9764)
