Ich übernahm als Vorturner zuerst das Damenturnen und begann auch wieder das Herrenturnen zu koordi-nieren, wobei wir natürlich die Jugend, vor allem Studenten und Gewerbeschüler heranziehen mussten. Auch eine alte Herrenriege wurde aktiviert. Von dieser Zeit an, übernahm ich den gesamten Turnbetrieb, welchen ich bis zum Jahre 1928 inne hatte.
