THESE ARE THE SIMPLE THINGS I CREDIT FOR THE UNFAILING ZEST FOR HARD WORK THAT I POSSESS There Are No Substitutes For Exercise And Sane Eating, Says Barbara Stanwyck, Fascinating Star Of “Night Nurse” Warner Bros. Film, Now Here (Practical Feature For Woman’s Page. For Sunday Plant in No. 2 Paper Publication) Charming Barbara Stanwyck, star of “Night Nurse,” the Warner Bros. production now at the Theatre has a way of jotting down her thoughts about various matters, and she was prevailed upon by her interviewer during the filming of “Night Nurse” to permit her latest dissertation on beauty and the way to keep beauty, to be made public. Sluggish women should be sent to jail in their own interests. And in the interests of their friends, as well. I believe this, and I say it not in hostility to women who let themselves slump and lose their figures, but in friendship. It is so easy to keep one’s figure. All it takes is a little care about diet, health and exercise. Yet this trio of indispensables for the making of vital womanhood is neglected by most women. ARE LADIES LAZY? And why? Pure laziness is the answer. It is so much easier to have one’s breakfast served in bed, to lounge through the morning, to take to a taxi, a motor car, or a street car, for the trip to the shopping center of town. Not a woman between the ages of fifteen and fifty but is interested in remaining attractive to her husband, her sweetheart, her friends. A woman realizes that her allure, the magnetic je ne sais quoi of her personality is what makes her interesting to those she cherishes. Knowing these things, she will let herself grow sluggish, and take to pining about exessive weight baggage, and the lines that come with age. And while this woman has taken to pining, she has also taken, let us ‘assuine, to cosmetics and tie iasseuse as substitutes for dieting and i She expects the miracle to happen. Now, a good cream is valuable as an adjunct; a good massage is beneficial to the body; but women should keep in mind the precept that there are no substitutes for exercise and careful regimen of diet. TELLTALE SCALES A good idea is to watch your weight every day, and step on the miniature scale each morning, as you prepare your toilette. I find that if I have put on a quarter of a pound of weight on the preceding day, through some innocent looking but rich dessert, it is easy to rectify the fractional addition of weight. I exercise for half an hour or so that same day. I pass up my dessert, and I retire for the night certain that the beginning of added poundage has been arrested. I must do this if I am to continue as a professional. My contract stipulates it. Common sense demands it. Exercise of course is more important than diet. Children can eat anything that is offered to them and feel no injurious effect. They run and wrestle and play so much of the time that their system, easily absorb whatever wrong food they may perchance take. It is the same with adults who wisely devote a minimum of half an hour daily to exercise. It may be no more strenuous than a walk, so long as it is fairly brisk and so long as it tones up the system. FORTY LOVE Tennis and swimming are ideal, though the first may be too violent a form of exercise for some women. Horseback riding is marvelous for system-toning, and I recommend that every woman try to average at least two hours each week. There is the gymnasium, too, for limbering up the muscles. And as a last resort, there is always one’s bedroom. It is easy to follow a system of exercises that will, if regularly followed, create appetite and make the body pulsating with health. In addition to the matter of a healthy body, exercise should be cultivated for the sake of the good posture it induces. Bad posture, the doctors will tell you, will in the end seriously lead to complications in the heart, the lungs, and the vital organs. It is estimated that twentyfive percent of men and women have faulty postures, fifty-eight percent have fair bodily posture, and only seventeen percent hold their Winninger Creates Doctor in Barbara Stanwyck Film (Advance Reader) Charles Winninger, husband of Blanche Ring and brother-in-law of Tom Meighan, has for years been famous on Broadway. One of his latest roles was in the stage version of “Show Boat”.

When the posture is wrong, the shoulders stoop, the spine curves and twists unnaturally, the pelvic and shoulder girdles lose their material alignments. Good posture makes for good health, and exercise makes for good posture. Bad posture leads to impaired breathing, disturbed heart action, and faulty digestion. Have you ever noticed that, when camping, you can tramp for miles, swim, and ride, eat everything that is cooked, and at the end of the time actually lose three to five pounds? This merely proves that if you exercise regularly you need never worry about your figure. THE CRUEL CALORY As for diet, it is wise to regulate it so that the body consumes daily about two thousand calories, divided among meat, milk, some sweet or starch, and green vegetables and fruits. The diet should be divided into seven units. I eat one unit of meat, one of sweet or starch, one of milk, two units of green vegetables and two of fruit. I consider this diet a good one for keeping within a regular weight: Breakfast Calories Grape fruit or orange....... 100 He ete ec tes i ee 100 ‘Foast<one::silte==s on. sa 100 Butter, one pat: <2 #2...) as 100 Glass of skim milk ........ 100 ‘TOtal Sa es 500 Luncheon Baked: potatoss: 3. ret Ses 100 Small pat:butter a 100..
