Text Appearing Before Image:
Tn has taken on new life. The floor is covered daily with men at handball,basketball, and indoor baseball, wrestling, boxing, striking the bag, and working onthe apparatus. The pool is also enjoying great popularity; it has been fitted with rings,ropes, spring board, and diving tower, so that polo, tag, and the jack-knife are theorder of the day. The office of the Director has been equipped with modern instruments, and eachstudent is given the advantage of a thorough physical and medical examination, theresults of which are filed for record and comparison. Special exercises are prescribedto suit the needs of the student, and advice on health topics is freely given. We hopebv this system to develop not only stronger athletic teams but also a stronger studentbody, and to prepare them for better service to their profession.

Salt mines near Maras, Sacred Valley, Peru

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maras,_Peru

The salt pans are filled with water from a spring with a salt fraction of 85%. The water evaporates in a few days and the pans are refilled over a period of a couple of months, until the salt is removed and sold. Every family in the nearby village owns one of the pools.
