Says Post-War Programs

"The health program is one of en-
richment" said Dr. Mabel E. Rugen
of the University's department of
physical education in yesterday's
School of Education lecture on
"Techniques in Health Education" at
the University high school auditor-
Health is not a subject but rather
a condition of the organism or a
quality of living, Dr. Rugen said. It
is as broad as school health education
itself in that it recognizes the learn-
ing experiences that are found in
healthful school living which include
the providing of a wholesome envir-
onment, the hygienic arrangement of
the school day and the establishment
of proper relationship between the
teacher and pupil, she added
In health education, Dr. Rugen
deems it necessary that the coopera-
tion of medical authorities be enlist-
ed. The education in the school must
coincide with that of the community,
and it must be an extension of that
of the community, she added.
Health programs after the great
war began with the practice of using
posters, plays and radio skits as the
medium of propaganda, but the exact
significance of these media was ques-

dividuals-except in the most pro- the schools, but these posters and
g skits were not the most successful

Alligator has particular import-
ance this winter in handbags. It has
blossomed forth from the conven-
tional brown or black into many
bright colors, especially blue, green,
red and the tawny shades. In a mod-
ified pouch style, one of these has a
plain, square horn frame, fastens
with a clip, and has a loop handle. It
is very roomy inside, will almost holdl

purse is attached by a gold chain, in-
suring its retention during heavy
shopping rushes. The bag is fitted
with a comb and mirror, and little'
compartments are on the lining for
cigarettes, vanity, lipstick, and call-
ing cards. And it opens wide so that
there is no struggle necessitated to
procure desired objects within.
Or for general wear, have a calf-
skin bag of good quality in a tailored

than it was last year. One of them

Envelope Bags In Style
For spectator sports wear, envelope'
bags are in style, though the costume
must be taken into consideration.
Envelopes are larger this winter,
some of them being nearly 12 inches
long. But a warning to the small

avoid appearing as a porter carry-

A modified envelope purse of calf
has a loop on the back for gloved
fingers, and the flap is diagonal fin-

and has loops on each side, through

Many Fabrics, Leathers
There are many fabrics and leath-
ers featured this winter. Antelope,
suede, buck, calf, kid, are the prin-
cipal leathers, while such reptiles as
alligator, python, lizard will be good
also. The fabrics include gabardine
(mostly for fall), wool in nubby
weaves, and crepes and velvets for
party bags. Patent will also be prom-
inent this year, seen mostly when
combined with antelope or gabardine.
The greatest demand as for color
will be for black, still the most pop-
ular for winter. Brown and green
will retain their positions, and navy
blue will be seen with grey fur coats,
or with slate blue outfits. The bright-

him on the desk two terra cotta tig-
ers, with delicate stripes, stand as
though sniffing the air.
His greeting is friendly, but once it
is over he clamps down on his cigar
and demands: "How long is this go-
ing to take?"
"As long as you care to make it,"
he is told.
"Fire away, then," he says. "Poli-
tics is out."
That gives him one strike on his
visitor, for interviewing Al Smith,
with politics out, is like talking about
Atlas without his burden.
That's One Strike
But there is no question that the
walker and talker of the last presi-
dential campaign is in his element
again. There is something alive and
nervous in his movements, in his
manner. For sweeter than the strains
of "The Sidewalks of New York" is
the battle din of politics to the man
in the brown derby. Therefore it
seemed safe to ask him: "How does4
it feel to be back in the political
"Didn't know I'd ever been out of
it," he barks through his teeth.
The illness and death of Tam-
many Leader Dooling brought Smith
back to the council tables of New
York's embattled democracy, and he
emerged with his man, Christopher D.
Sullivan, long a congressman but
never an orator, as chief of the wig-
wam, and his choice, Sen. Royal S.
Copeland, as candidate for mayor.
Political observers saw in this per-
sonal victory for Smith the injection
into local politics of his and Mr.
Copeland's opposition to President
Roosevelt's New Deal administration.
Although President Roosevelt has
made it known "for the thousandth
time" that he is staying out of New
York city politics, the Democratic
primary here apparently will be
fought out on the New Deal issue
since four New York borough lead-
ers have designated a pro-New Deal
candidate, Jeremiah T. Mahoney, to
oppose the senator. Should Copeland
emerge victorious, he will face Mayor
Fiorello H. LaGuardia, friend of the
administration, up for reelection on
his record of good government.
Will local history repeat itself?
Once every 20 years the New York
electorate, exhorted into action by
reform groups, has risen in wrath
against Tammany domination of City
Hall. Once every 20 years the Tiger
has gone into hiding, only to emerge,
leaner, but snarling fiercely before
proudly ascending the front steps of
the mayor's mansion as though to
the manor born. This year it will
have a fiercer fight on its hands, be-
cause of LaGuardia's prestige.
