“Ten Lessons on How to

Here’s what he has to say
about it. (He’s a graduate ol
Syracuse university, has been
a stage and motion picture actor,
producer and director for years, so
he’s qualified to talk.)
“I have three girls in 'Las Vegas
Nights.’ Each would use a differ

technique would re
quire eight reels to
fold. So—I let Con

Moore "The allure tech'
nique is used by a
woman conscious of the fact that
she has an enormous amount of
feminine appeal for men—a screen
example would be Hedy Lamarr.
Flattery is used by women ranging
from the baby-talk girls to the moth
ering type. There’s the girl who
gives the impression that she’s help
less; men want to stand between
her and the world—Bonnie Baker’s
an example.
"There’s the girl who uses the di
rect approach; spots the man she
wants and makes no
bones about it; she's !
a good sport, a play- i
mate, and picks a
man with the same
characteristics. Bar

one who is not brilliant and not

The answer is ‘She's got the man
that a lot of other girls wanted.’ ”
Some other girl may have Errol
Flynn for a husband now; Olivia de
Haviland’s married him five times
—on the screen—and when she fin
ished "Santa Fe Trail” she fled to
the equally ardent arms of James

She was a little dubious about it;

reputation where women were con

Olivia Is safe in this one—he’s cast
as a belligerent dentist who gets into
plenty of fights, but all with men.
Twenty-four of the show girls in
“Ziegfeld Girl" voted for their fa

Vivian Leigh got eight votes, and
Bette Davis and Greta Garbo each
got five. But—Judy Garland, Lana

be voted for. They’re in the picture.
Billy the Kid has finally joined the

Good Posture
Help to Both
Body and Mind
(Released by Western Newspaper Union.)
I SPEAK often about good
posture—erect position of
the body whether standing or
sitting—because of its value
both physical
and mental. TODAY’S
The erect car- u r AI T U
riage of the HtflLI"
body means COLUMN
that the shoul- L . ■■
ders are well back and the
chest well forward, giving the
lungs plenty of room to ex
pand, and preventing any
crowding or pressure on the
heart. With the lungs draw
ing in the pure air and breath
ing out the impure air, the
blood, pumped by a heart free
from pressure, will carry
more nourishment to and
more wastes from every cell
in the body.
The erect position calls also for a
drawing in (or backwards) of the
abdomen and tne de
velopment of the ab
dominal muscles by
keeping the abdo
men drawn in or
back holds the ab
dominal organs up
in their proper posi
tions, thus aiding di
gestion and prevent
ing constipation.
Dr. Philip Lewin,
New York, in Clini
Dr. Barton cal Medicine ana
Surgery, gives 10
commandments of good posture.
1. Stand tall.
2. Sit tall.
3. Walk tall and “chesty,” with
weight of the body on the balls or
front part of the feet.
4. Draw in the abdomen, pulling
it backwards and upwards.
5. Keep the shoulders high and
6. Pull the chin downward toward
the collar button.
7. Flatten the hollow of the back
by rolling the hip bones downward
and backward.
8. Separate the shoulders from the
hips as far as possible. Do this
more by drawing hips down than by
raising shoulders.
9. Lie tall and flat. (Don't overdo
this as having elbows and knees
very slightly bent helps to relax the
body and so invites sleep).
10. Think tall.

What’s to Be Done
About Dandruff?
DERHAPS you have been reading
* about various cures for dandruff
or have tried some without obtain
ing a cure. That dandruff is a fore
runner or cause of loss of hair is
not true, according to many research
The federal trade commission of
the United States, after an investiga
tion of dandruff, states that there is
no proof that dandruff is due to any
infection. In Public Health Reports,
Washington. D. C., Dr. C. W. Em
mons states that while a small
yeastlike organism is always pres
ent in the dry or greasy scales of
This little organism is known as
the “bottle bacillus” and many In
vestigators have tried in vain to
cause it to grow as other tiny or
ganisms are made to grow. Even
those research workers who have
been successful in growing this or
ganism admit that they have not
been able to cause dandruff in any
scalps by inoculation with it.
Instead of trying to infect a nor
mal scalp and thus perhaps cause
dandruff, it was decided to inocu
late an individual who already had
dandruff and to measure whether
this inoculation caused any increase
in the time required to develop dan
druff in places where dandruff was
extensive as compared with places
in which dandruff was absent or
scant The dandruff did not appear
any sooner in the inoculated spots
than in the other spots.
This proves, that, with our pres
ent knowledge at least, dandruff is
not likely due to the organism that
hitherto has been blamed for it.
The above information does not
mean that something should not be
done about dandruff. Until the cause
is found, the frequent use of soap
and water on the scalp, or the use
of various proprietary preparations
should be continued. The cleansing
and rubbing of the scalp in itself is
helpful in that it not only loosens
and removes scales but stimulates
the circulation of the blood in the

Q-—Could heavy smoking (now
discontinued) have any direct con
nection with my feeling sure I have
, heart disease?
A.—It is not likely that your heart
was permanently damaged by smok
ing. Symptoms look more like gall
bladder disturbance. However, an
examination by your physician will
show whether or not symptoms are
doe to a heart condition.
Q—How can I stop smoking?
A.—Eating candy before smoking
ind engaging in sports will help.

Spanking Sportsmen
The lads of the Philippine islands
are tough. Their favorite game
is the slapping game, when one of
them sits on a bench, side on to his
opponent. The other lad steps up,
lashes out with a mighty slap on
the side.
Then the judges have a look at
the victim. If the blow has been
hard enough to make blood show
beneath the skin, the striker has
won. If not, he has to change
places with the other lad, who
takes a slap at him.

not worry these boys!
