Central high school, gymnastic drill

The cameraman placed his equipment at the edge of a school yard where supervised gymnastics were being conducted by high school students. Male students can be seen doing the long and short "horse" exercises to the left of the camera position. In the center, a group of young girls are engaged in using the parellel bars and to the right of the camera, some older boys in white clothing are executing several difficult exercises on the high parallel bars. Across the extent of the visibility of the camera is a blackboard with the words "Kansas City, Mo."
