Abstract: The present peace time interest In physical fitness was emphasized through the efforts of Dr. Hans Kraus and Ruth P. Hirschland. The results of studies by Kraus and his associates indicated the apparently appalling state of physical fitness of American school youth as compared to European children. This information was brought to the attention of President Eisenhower, who in June, 1956, called a conference on the "Fitness of American Youth." The President felt more should be done to help youth acquire fitness so that they could be better prepared to meet the demands of modern life. (56:8)
