This young giant is anxious to get a
wallop at the all highest!
There isn't a trench deep enough on
the battlefield that will conceal the eight feet one inches of
Nernard Coyne the twenty-one year old giant seen in the photo.
Of course young Coyne is not worried ever much about it, because
he figures there will be not more trench fighting anyway.
If he over gets a wallop at "Jerry" or if he ever lays eyes on
the Kaiser himself, Oh Boy-there is going to be a funeral in
Germany due to the strength displayed by the youngster.
Young Coyne has just registered and
the men alongside him are members of the Draft Board at Des
Moines Iowa. In the picture are E.D. Van Meter at left of
the giant Sylvester Coyne the giants father at right and Sam
Wymer of the U. S. Revenue Office directly under the
outstretched hand. Young Coyne has been growing rapidly
for several years.
He was over six feet tall when he
was eleven years old. His greatest year's growth was 4 1/2
inches. He added 2 1/2 inches during the past year.
Coyne wears No. 23 shoes and other articles of apparel equally
