Working Girl
Takes Grand Tour
Common sense will protect the working girl as she dashes off for a
little independent fling to parts unknown.
U. S. passport statistics show that 25 percent of foreign travelers
today are the working girls who obviously aren’t sitting around waiting
Ir-r heaven to protect them. '
Women now outnumber men
two to one on foreign tours, re
ports American Express, which
would be happy to book even more
of the ladies on their solo tours.
Those who have done it say,
“You can travel alone and like it."
In fact, it has its advantages
for Miss Lonelyheart. Somebody
turned up with this interesting
statistic: a trip alone doubles and
even quadruples a girl's chances
of finding a husband. Whether or
not the statistic is scientific—it is
hopeful for the girls looking for
a man and not just scenery.
A good idea is to visit American
Express for a run-down on the
cruises and escorted tours avail
able. Conducted tours guarantee
plenty of company, assure the nov
ice traveler of a minimum of dif
ficulties with reservations, time
tables, baggage transportation
and so on.
If a woman has a particular
hobby she may be able to join a
group which shares that interest
—whether it is languages, music,
fashion, the theatre or famous
gardens. Group travel is also a
perfect way for the unescorted
lady to do the night clubs and
casinos.
More adventurous and inde
pendent souls would do well to coj
lect some names of friends to visit
on the trip.
Once the trip gets underway,
shyness should be shed to the
trade winds. Everybody is anxious
to be friendly so that a smile or
comment on the weather may well
start a friendship that will last
for the duration of the trip—or
the rest of the young lady’s life.
On a cruise, it’s advisable to
take part in all the ship’s activi
ties. It’s a wonderful way to make
friends. Women alone will feel
more at ease about joining people
for a drink or on shore trips if
they make a point at the begin
ning of explaining that they wish
to pay their own way.
Last but not least, they -should
respect the customs of the coun
tries they are in as far as man
ners and mode of dress are con
cerned. Otherwise they may find
themselves in embarrassing pre
dicaments.
Many women who have traveled
alone say they wouldn’t do it any
other way. Two is company—but
a crowd of new acquaintances can
be more fun! _
TEEN-AGERS and their problems
OVERWEIGHT
The worst offenders where diets ore con
cerned are teen-agers. Teen-age girls,
because of their desire to be pretty and
popular, copy their mothers' "fad" diets to
lose unwanted pounds, and often show a
loss in physical health and well-being.
A recent research project at Texas
State College for Women spon
sored by Lever Brothers Company
showed that a moderately high per
centage of fat in a very good diet /
could mean weight control as well M
as greater skin beauty and better j
general health for teen-age girls. ®
There were four separate diet plans,
from the highest fat diet which con
tained both Spry and Good Luck
margcine with % of the total cal
ories as fat, to the lowest fat diet
with only about 12% of calories as
fat. But, no girl on the highest fat
•diet became overweight. On low
fat, 70% stayed overweight, few
lost weight. - jra

The earliest man bathed frequently in rivers
and streams. Not realizing the hygenic value of
a bath he knew only that the bath was refreshing.
Modern man hnouis that frequent bathing is
essential to cleanliness and good hearth.
