Morning came. The bell rang. I got out of the warm cotton- padded quilt, quickly dressedmyself, ran onto the playground, and played on the parallel bars.
A few moments later, more people came. They exercised themselves in various ways. Some ranaround the track. Some played on the horizontal bar. Still some played basketball, trying toshoot baskets . A group of girls were walking on the balance beam by turn. A couple ofstrongly-built boys made graceful movements on the flying rings. Over there, several old menand women did shadow-boxing.
At exactly 6∶30, music came for people to do exercises to radio music. For ten minutes all thepeople on the playground were seen bending down and straightening up, turning left and right. It's really a beautiful sight to look at!
