Newspaper Clipping About Hull Massachusetts Coast Guardsmen Goulart and Bickford

Found already clipped, so the year of publication is not immediately apparent.

Plunge in Icy Waters Part of Daily Routine of Two Hull Surfmen

HULL, Jan 11 - The icy waters of Boston Harbor at Stony Beach hold no terror for two members of the Stony Beach Coast Guard Station.

Costa Goulart Jr. and Oliver W. Bickford, surfmen of the station, take a plunge each morning before drill.

A few weeks ago the first swim was taken on a bet with brother members and the two  life-savers enjoyed it to such an extent that now they take it as a matter of course.

They have made a pledge that they will continue their baths each morning.
