Football Players Pushing Railroad Car
(Original Caption) Shoving railroad cars around is the latest kind of training for the Columbia University football squad. Here, Herb Maach (L), 201-pound sophomore tackle, and Frank Sposato, 175-pound sophomore back, exert their combined strength in shoving a 114,350 pound car of the 20th Century Limited. Tapered roller bearings aid the huskies in their task.
