Taken From The Right End At Which To Be (Or Not To Be)

Constant Hearty Eating Is Seen
Bad For Summer Pep And Figure

Well-Balanced Diet Is Aid
In Diminishing Effects
Of Heat, Writer Asserts'
We see by the papers that there
are going to be two Thanksgivings
this year, which will probably lead a
lot of people into the paths and by-
ways of hyprocrisy so that they can
claim the privilege of feasting twice
. . once with the old guard and
once with the new deal.
This should be welcome news to
some of you hearty eaters, and just
off hand we'd say that the capitalists
are bound to offer up .the most elab-
orate meal, but we'll take the cole
slaw with the underdogs and be per-
fectly happy. However, we confess
that food is an incidental matter to
us, and a quart of milk plus a pot of
black coffee and a couple of pea-
nut butter sandwiches can keep us
going at top speed any day.
On the other hand, there are a few
of you who live to eat, and you're
never happy unless you have just
finished stuffing yourself with any-
thing from a fried chicken dinner to
a few chocolate sodas. It's all right
to eat a lot when you're young and
active, because you can usually wear

most of it off. But when you begin
to approach the middle twenties you'll
find that matronly women can't get
by with being plump in the cute
sense, and you'll begin to regret that
you didn't use more common sense
when you were younger.,
Of course, we don't advise any of1
you to try and live on a meager diet
of milk, coffee and sandwiches, but it
would be a smart thing for you con-
stant eaters to cut down some. You
will feel much better during this hotE
weather if you follow a simple well-]
balanced diet, not only because you7
won't notice the heat so much, but
because in due time you will be able
to wear your clothes with more style..
For breakfast, drink orange juice,,
milk (or coffee if you prefer), and
have a poached egg on toast. For
lunch select a fresh vegetable salad,
a whole wheat sandwich or a bowl
of soup and milk. Then for dinner
eat meat, a few potatoes, vegetables,
milk and a fresh fruit dessert. This
need not be considered'adiet lin'the
strict sense of the word, as it con-
tains all the food and energy value
which the average coed needs to see
her through the day. All the vita-
mins necessary to a healthy existence
are contained in this menu, and if
you follow it religiously yod will both
look and feel 100 per cent better by
the time school opens next month.
Furthermore, it should be a blessed
relief to be able to wear a size 12 or
14 dress with complete comfort after
all these years of looking as though
you'd been poured into a 16.

State Buyers Wastei
Time, Riley Caims
LANSING, Aug. 16.-(/)-Robert
J. Riley, new State Purchasing Direc-
tor, charged today that the average
State buyer on his staff wastes six
hours of each eight-hour workingi
day, and said he would correct the
condition immediately.;
Riley declared the fault rested withI
unbusinesslike procedures, rather]
than with the employes, asserting
there was no "filter" system to side-
track unwanted visitors demanding,
interviews with the buyers. As a re-
sult, he said, the buyers were plagued
by long interviews with vendors that
brought no benefit to the State.

Dr. Lowell J. Carr, director of the

"Only recently I abolished a num-
