Have you never wondered why the
.lancing erase ewept the country o
broadly and gathered In cltlsens from
17 to 70?
The best way to figure the thing out Is
to dance a full four-minute phonograph
record to the stsps of the old-fashioned
waits or two-step. Jtepeat the same atep
over and over with ho change in tempo i
or accent for four minutes. At the end
of that time you have had a period of
strenuous exercise, anil unless you are
young and In the prime of condition,
you are likely to lie rod-faced, panting,
excessively warm and much too worn out
to look forward to the next waits or
two-step with any enthusiasm.
Here Is the answer a to why the danc
ing of our early youtn wa never as
popular as that of the present decade.
The waits and two-step were "too much
like work" to become popular for parents
and grandparents, aa well as lusty young
children. They were good exerclso, but
ou couldn't use them to put yourself
In condition; you had to be In condition

dance may begin With simplo steps

to the measure fo fox trot, canter waits

We all tire eaMly of the Same thing

swing and syncopated ratchlnesa that
fslrly express the mcod and tem

much chance for self-expression
The man who comes out of hia office at
8 o'clock and who fairly riraga his feet
along ns he set out mechanically to
"walk home through the park" for the
sptendlu exen le It affords, misses any
thing splendid In the exercise lie takes
beciuxe he thinks he ought to. There Is
no Joy. no uplift In the sodden way he-
drags h'niself along or lashes himself
to proceed on the balls of his feet per
forming dull and uninteresting deep
breathing exercise the while.
Exercise to pertorni Its functions In the
way that Is best for lhe hody, ought to
bo crl.p and Joyous; It ought to fill the
mind. "The tired buslnesa man" who
takes his exercise at walking, at driving
home lit his motor car, or wh some
mechanical exerciser, may get fresh air
or movement or both. But all the while
lie I probably going over his business
problems and missing the relaxation of
tired nerves i.nd stimulation of feelinii
which would make his exeTises worth
The man who can go out early In th'
morning and ride horseback or hve n
good game of tennis or can follow a golf
ball over the undulating links for hours
is getting splendid exercise.
But for the .avoragn business man who
hasn't a chance at the outdoor world, ex
cept on Sundays or at vacation time, the
dance Prase Is n bleslng. The lsxy so
ciety woman whoso most violent form of
exercise, has hitherto been to let her
maaseiise worl: at flabby tissues, now
rises to the occasion and Joyfully whirl
In the dance. Men and women who
though themselves too old for active en
joyment, find youth and light hearts ris
ing up from thlr own trlppipg feet.
The doctor who advises the young busl
nesa man of f replied nerve waa wise In
his day and generation.
Exactly what will this tired man find
In dancing? First, hi one chance of ex-,
erclse. Second, his one chance of relaxa
tion and furgetfulness of all his business
problems together with stimulation of,
stagnant blood and outworn muscles.
Then Joy and pleasant companionship.
And finally from the music, the lights,

an Invitation and an Incentive to youth

Dancing In moderation and with ssnlty;
Is probably the most healthful as well as'
tha most pleasant, form of exercise. And
dancing Is within the reach of all rich

Regard It on the high plane where It
is meant to be, a sane, healthy, pleasant
exercise. Remember that once It wa
held In such high repute that It was a
religious rite. Keapect It aa a fine chance
for muscles and lung and heart Then
