Exercise Clinic Open to Women
For Posture, Figure Instruction

Students Will Meet Faculty
At Informal Gathering Today


One of the lesser known ser-
vices of the Women's Physical
Education Departments is the
Exercise Clinic designed to give
individual instruction in prob-
lems ranging from muscle tone
and development to poor posture,
according to Dr. Margaret Bell,
Chairman of the Department.
The program is elective. Stu-
dents are recommended, as in the
case of entering freshmen by
the examining doctor during re-
gistration week or later by the
physical educator and the physi-
cian. Upperclassmen, as well as
freshmen and sophomores may
enter the clinic to learn the exer-
cise for their particular problem.
Foot exercises are taught, as
well as exercises to correct poor
posture, faulty muscular coordi-
nation and flabbiness. The exer-
cises for flabbiness or obesity are
designed not to reduce weight
but to affect bulk. One woman
weighing 150 pounds may be ex-
tremely overweight while her
room-mate, having the same
weight, may appear to be thin.

ALTHOUGH students with gen-
eral posture or foot problems are
grouped together in classes, the
instruction is highly individual-
ized. Coeds are taught the exer-
cises to correct their particular
problems and practice them at
the clinic. After they leave the
clinic they are advised to con-
tinue the exercises at home, pre-
ferably twice a day.
A very common figure prob-
lem is the tendency for some
persons to slouch when they be-
come tired. The exercise may
be as simple as keeping the
back flat and standing a short
distance away from a corner
facing the wall and stretching
out the arms with palms of the
hands against each wall.
No matter how minor one may
consider a slight round-shouldered
posture it can lead to serious
figure problems and should be
corrected. It is advisable to find
out what to do to correct an in-
dividual problem and to make use
of that knowledge to create a
more youthful appearance. One

must be careful not to practice a
wrong correction since that may
lead to worse problems than the

WOMEN ARE also directed by
the clinic to the sports which
would best suit their capacities.
First the likes of the individual
are considered and then her needs.
A coad with poor eyesight
which cannot be corrected by
glasses would obviously not be
encouraged to play tennis where
a great deal depends on watch-
ing the swiftly moving ball.
Along the same principles if a
woman has poor muscular coordi-
nation she would probably never[
become a golf champion. The coed
would not get any enjoyment
from the games and frustrations
would develop in each of these
Clinic hours are from 1:15 to
2 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday;
between 8 and 9, 11 a.m. and noon,
and 1:15 to 2 p.m. on Wednesday;
between 2 and 3 p.m. on Thursday;

sium, are open to all women on
