Turtle Posture, Shoulder Wings
Fatal To PersoalityQuotient

'All Eyes On You' Michigan Theatre --Tomorrow

By BIEATIWE iMOUiA~hi
Upon first appearance there is
-othing that discloses character soon-
3r than posture, since as' a rule it is
.he first thing that attracts one's
attention.
If a person stands in a turtle fash-
ion, the most natural result is that.
this person will immediately be typed
3,s shy and retiring. If their posture
is too straight and, the head is car-
'ied too high, this person will appear
o.aughty and perhaps conceited.
Stop The Slump!
* With the era of full, comfortable
;lothes, the modern college gal's pos-
ture seems to have gone from bad to
worse in many respects. When our1
mothers were struttin' up, the "diag,"
their attire forced them into that
hip, back, chest forward position.
'today, however, also perhaps as a
result of our apparel, we all have de-
veloped wings and relaxed tummies.
Our shoulders have begun to slouch
because of these wings and need I}
say anything about the tummies?
Now the saddest result of this whole
affair is that we all believe that our,
full, long sweaters and our pleated
skirts disguise our poor posture. Far
be it from true, however, because
mothers are becoming prematurely
gray over the whole affair and gym
teachers are all suffering from slight
cases of nervous prostation. -
Crusade For Posture
Well at any rate, it looks like the
time has come, the Walrus said, toI
start a posture crusade. Perhaps we
might all start a jab-in-the-wings-
fad - (rhymes, don't it?). Better
still there are some very effective
exercises that will aid your posture
problem no end..
Now children all take your prized
Dailies in hand and perform the fol-
lowing killers as you proceed (inci-
dentally we will give a bonus of $50
to any one who wishes td come up to,
the Daily and demontrate that they'
can do them while reading).
One, Two, Three!
1. Stand! - I assume that you are
All now standing - with your feet
apart and your heels six inches from
the wall. Next relax thi body fore-
ward from the lips. Then rise slow-
ly until each vertebra touches and
stays against the wall. Roll up until
the spine is fully extended and press
the shoulders back and down. \
2. Stand with your hands clas ed
behind your head and your elbows
out and up. Pull in the stomach, tuck.
the hips under and press the head
into the hands. Hold, relax and re-

pea iuntil the arms fal off). This
particular exercise is especially fine
for those forementioned wings.
3. Lie face up on the floor and place
the legs upon a chair. Inhale, push
the chest up from the floor, exhale
and slowly return the back to its
former position on the.floor.
If you can't understand these ex-
ercises then the most direct method
of learning posture control would be
tp trot on over to Barbour Gym and
enroll in a body mechanics class. If
all tiis fails, then the posture prob-
lem at Michigan is an insoluble one.
one.
Early Yuletide
f {'
BuigInsures

Only 35 more shopping days before!
Christmas. It seems like a long way
off, but it comes around pretty fast
and most of us find ourselves in the
I usual rush about a week before
Christmas. The wise little co-ed,
however, trots herself clown to the
Ann Arbor shops, looks over the many
clever gifts and starts collecting herI
Christmas horde now.
One very new and different yet
practical gift is a perfume stick. It
looks like a lipstick but contains ei-
ther perfume or cologne in a variety
of fragrances.
Gift shops are full of ideas. Sta-
tionery for "thank you" notes with
attractive pictures and sayings on
them will be much appreciated by,
your friends when they start writng
those fatre Christmas notes. Other
letter paper made by the same com-
pany has appropriate sketches and
sayings for travelers. convalescents
and collegians.
Individual matches are always wel-
come too. People seem to enjoy seeing
their name on things, even matches.
While we're on the subject have you
ordered your Christmas cards? There
are many inexpensive but very at-
tractive styles, and the stores are full
of books from which you may choose
your favorite card.
AN this may sound a little prema-
ture, but prices are going up and it
is more than likely that many of the
things which you see in stores now
will be gone if you wait. So get busy.
do your shopping now; then relax
when Christmas comes and enjoy!
your vacation.
