Proof that back “in the day,” cooking utensils were used so often, drawers were not seen as so vital; these items were used (and then washed) so often, they never had time to gather dust or otherwise need protection that left them far removed from where they were used. Why hide them from sight when you’d be using them — and soon. Picsured.com

One-room schoolhouse, 1921.
Why does this photo make the children’s and teacher’s eyes look unusual? A long exposure time plus a bright flash cause superimposed eyeballs and eyelids. An effect that you may see when reviewing older albums or photos. http://bit.ly/PtnjcW

You might be surprised to learn that at its inception in the mid-1800s cheerleading was an all-male sport. Characterized by gymnastics, stunts, and crowd leadership, cheerleading was considered equivalent in prestige to an American flagship of masculinity, football.

As the editors of Nation saw it in 1911:
…the reputation of having been a valiant “cheer-leader” is one of the most valuable things a boy can take away from college. As a title to promotion in professional or public life, it ranks hardly second to that of having been a quarterback.*

Sadly, these races occurred because Owens needed the money. After his Olympic success, he did not get the type of endorsements and sponsors that he needed.
“People said it was degrading for an Olympic champion to run against a horse, but what was I supposed to do?” Owens said. “I had four gold medals, but you can’t eat four gold medals.”
Later Jesse Owens revealed that his strategy was to race against high-strung thoroughbreds that would be frightened by the starter’s shotgun and start poorly!
