Paul J. Risedorf

Paul J. Risedorf is an athlete. He also enjoys the distinction of having won the first race of its kind - a 220 Yard Straightaway Race - RUN INDOORS. Stop and think a minute what that means and then imagine, if you can, the kind of building in which such a race could be run. There are not many in the whole world. The race was run on the fourth floor of the main building of the Remington Typewriter factory. This building is 800 feet long. Of course, there is room in it for a 220 yard straightaway race and room to spare. The 220 yard straightaway race for the Remington Indoor Championship is to be a regular feature of the annual athletic contests for Remington employees. The prize for the winner is a gold medal offered by the Vice-President of the company. Mr. Risedorf won it this year in the splendid time of 24 seconds.
