“Nudism is no longer thought to be a strange cult. For many years it was painted as a mystery of vice by the prudish, who shrouded the subject in a fog of mis-information and malevolent criticism. Indeed, in the last ten years the many nudist publications, both in America and overseas have revealed to the general public the secrets of nudism. Now that the philosophy and practice of social nudism are in the open, we find no damning vices, no hedonistic orgies; but rather a wholesome pleasure in nature and a respect for our human bodies.
While it is true that nudism is open to all, the short, the fat, the tall, etc., many of us have the feeling that perfection of our bodies is also a part of the nudist philosophy. It is our intention to specialize. We will endeavour to cover those aspects of nudism which lead to the development of beautiful bodies. This is not to say that we disagree with other nudists who believe that nudism and sun and nature are the end all of their belief; rather we feel ourselves to be another aspect of nudism.
We are not dogmatic. We do not insist that the perfection of the human body will be a result of any one type of body-building. We will encourage all types of activity: weight-lifting, exercise, gymnastics, sports, and iso-metrics.
All who believe that the perfection and the beauty of the human body are ideals worth attaining, are invited to join us: both, those who are currently nudists and those who have yet to discover the pleasures of the sun on their naked bodies as well as on their naked souls. In today's world of steadily increasing tensions; the horrors of war-atomic looming and the breakdown of traditional social palliatives, nudism stands alone as the way of refreshing and rebuilding the human spirit.
Throw away your tobacco, your whiskey, your tranquilizers and your fears.
Romp out into the sun with us. Let the air clothe your naked body and the grass cushion your steps. Live as we believe the creator of the sun and the air and the grass and the human animal, intended.” -The Editor
