Description
Here we see Indians from the Sherman Institute at Riverside, with their ancestors' hardihood and endurance, running in the Los Angeles Coliseum. Will one of these Americans win in the Olympic? The Olympic marathon is about 26 miles, the distance of the original marathon of 490 B.C., when Philippides ran to Athens with news of the Greeks' victory over the Persians at Marathon, cried, "Joy, we win," and fell dead. Photo dated: February 25, 1927.
