For Qood Health
By BLANCHE BERGER
The program offered by the physi-
al education department including
sports, dancing, exercise, and condi-
ioning is designed specifically for the
)enefits of each student, according to
Dr. Margaret Bell, chairman of the
)rogram of Physical Education for
"The fact is well established that
activity is beneficial to the 'health of
;irls and women. Exercise is a must
f they wish to developbodies which
Nill function at their optimum, and
njoy vigorous, dynamic health. Per-
,onal, as well as physical health, can
e achieved through the program of-
ered," stated Dr. Bell.
Health Increases Abilities
"Dynamic health," she continued,
'means more than freedom from dis-
-ase. It is the ability of performing
daily tasks with buoyancy and reserve
of energy. However, exercise alone
will not give this quality of vigorous
health. Sleep, fast becoming a lost
art on campus, is essential, as well as
a substantial, well-balanced diet.
This combination of proper exercise,
enough sleep and an adequate diet
will improve general health- and
thereby make a more attractive and
Dr. Bell stressed the fact that phys-
ical education can do even more for
students. Since each girl wishes to
make the best impression possible at
all times, the department is striving
to help improve appearances and pos-
ture. The department can't change
body builds, but can make the most
of what a student has inherited.
Skill in Athletics Is a Social Asset
Another contribution of the course,
according to Dr. Bell, is to provide
students with sports techniques and
skills for leisure time. There are nu-
merous opportunities offered, through
a wide repertoire of activities. "The
various recreational skills which one
gains can become social tools, and
through these skills there arises the
opportunity to make friends with
others of like interests."
"Make the most of physical educa-
tion," urged Dr. Bell. "It is for your
own personal benefit. It helps main-
tain a higher level of health, improves
posture and figure, gives better con-
trol of the body, and develops greater
proficiency in sports. It is instru-
mental, therefore, in the entire de-
velopment of each student."

AS IF SEVENTEEN-year-old girls weren't painful enough already, the
publishers of a certain magazine are conducting a systematic and de-
termined campaign designed to make them worse. I have had my eye on
this bunch for some time, but haven't been able to get anything definite on
them until the December issue of their seditious publication, which I won't
embarrass by naming, but Booth Tarkington should sue.
I don't want to be an alarmist, but the things which go on inside the
cover of this bit of effervescent idiocy should give rise to grave misgiv-
ings about the mentalities of the future mothers of America.
LET US EXAMINE the evidence objectively. A column innocuously en-
titled "Let's Go Shopping" begins with these words.-"Janie, can you
think of ANYthing that's more fun than Christmas shopping?" (The capi-
tals, I hasten to say, are the author's not mine.) As a rational person, I find
the attitude of mind indicated by this statement distinctly morbid. I could
go on for hours naming things which are more fun than Christmas shop-
ping. There may possibly be'a more dispiriting occupation, but I cannot
think of any right this minute.
But let us not draw our conclusion from insufficient sample of cases,
as we say in Psych. 31. Several frenzied sentences later the author ad-
vocates the purchase of a HAND-blown glass vase, declaring- "Mother
would LEAP at it, i know." This statement has a distinctly sinister ring.
All the china stores in town probably send for the riot squad when they
see her mother coming.
THE TREND of the whole thing becomes even clearer when she declares
"I've got the most terRIFic idea for Aunt Jane, who's always zooming
around the country," (probably on a broomstick), and declared that a
sugarscoop filled with herb products is "Perfect for Mother to give Aunt
Mary: she's a WIZard in the kitchen." I'll bet she mixes a mean love-potion.
Mother is obviously unable to do her own shopping by this time, and I'll
bet I could tell you why.
Aifew paragraphs later she gives herself away still further by say-
ing- "Really, Janie, a good pipe is the ONLY answer for a man like
Uncle Bob ... he practically EATS them!" Lighted ones, too, no doubt.
With a home atmosphere like that, one can hardly blame the poor girl
for writing the way she does., It's probably hereditary.
PERSONALLY, I HAVE a positive inspiRAtion for a Christmas gift. I
found the most LUSH little straitjacket with those new wrap-around
sleeves, and I know JUST where to send it.

sight, "The Argument," painted in
California, shows a group of 'soap-
box orators' in a park, heatedly dis-
