Is association with a fraternity worth the price-? Better than try to decide it themselves, parents should let their .son.s and daughters figure out the answer.

"If you want to make it cover Iraternily expenses-even though that mjght mean that you have to do •some part-time work, or have a Job m summer, or buy fewer clothes, or cut down somewhere else- go ahead." 11 il i.s put that way, a boy or girl can get down to some business-like figuring self.

The original of another, a pink satin corset lacing tightly down the back .set off some fireworks when it appeared in another window. Doctors Dubious The last time we women went in for whalebones and piano wire lacings. I lie doctors had a lot to say about il. Mow do they react today? "Big women with lots of fat around the- waist," said one doctor who would not allow his name to be used, "may be able to stand slightly tighter waists. Cut little women who are already (piite small will suffer .seriously if they lace themselves in too tightly." •"Wo'men. will begin to breathe like men." said another doctor. "Most women, you know, have an abdominal typo of respiration, while most men breathe through the chest. "All this will push the abdominal viscera against the diaphragm imt | embrafs the heart." In 100-1 a writer who signed her«clf Arabella Kenealy said this in an article for the Nineetcenth Century Magazine, called "The Curse of Corsets." "Womanliness is not a thing of inch- e.s. ^noi- of muscles, nor of ;:ti'eiigth. "The capacity of the constricted stomach is so encroached upon when a woman encases herxelf in an abnormality of steel and whalebone . . com- prctsing vital organs in unyielding trip . . . that it will not without pairi or discombort contain enough material for the needs of nutrition.

A man who is c-ipabl" of running a punch press all day long may be unable to row a boat for a mile. For physical fitness is somewhat of an individual proposition having to do with the conditions under which one lives 'and works. Experts in physiology have tried to work out tests of physical fitness j which could be applied as a routine I to all human beings. We can measure ' the blood pressure and the pulse rales, but what we need to know is the abilty of the heart to respond to unusual concltioiis. Many tests have been worked out. Jn one. thy .subject bends over HI limes and the puJ.-e is recorded to .'et how long it takes the heart to return to its normal rate. The ability of (he circulatory system to respond promptly to except-' ional effort and to return to normal in the proper time, therefore, is the l.i'.sis of most tests of physical fitness. I he British Royal Air Force use.':' the "^0-millimeter test." The man who is tested sits with his nose .slopped by a clamp. By treating annul through a- .suitable mouthpiece.; he maintains a column of mercury at a height of -10 millimeters as long i.s he is able. The- doctor takes the' rate of hi.s pulse every other five seconds, i II the conditions is Satisfactory, the pulse rate remains almost unaltered lor a minute or longer. If the condition i.s not satisfactory, the pulse rale fluctuates promptly. Sir Adulphe Abrahams, who is a phys-ician speeiali/.mg in the care of athletes, does not believe that this if particularly a good test for athletes. He believes thai the best test of pby.'-icalw film*?, i.s the relation of the rale of the he-ol to exercise. Among some of the common tests are lifting of a weight over a measured distance for a t;iven number of tim- f-. running up and down .-, flight "f stairs in a fixed time, raising and lowering the arms! and operating f stationary bicycle. Sir Adolphe believes the best index of physical fitness is the rate at which the 'heart returns to normal after exercise. As ; rule, slowing of the heart begins 10 to 15 seconds :ift-;r the exercise stopr and continues regularly will] '••• re-turn to the lestin grate wilh 45 seconds. 'fiierr are many athletes, particularly long distance runners, for whom this lost will not apply. Th:-y deve- I'-p an automatic!);,' or routine of conduct which takes them outside many ')) the rules for testing physical fit- n ess. What makes a super-athlete i.s not nf.L'C.'-si.rily a normal condition of his hear!, hi.',- blood vessels ',r his muscles, bin a seme of co-ordination that is difficult io measure by anything except the performance in which the super-athlete excels.

Ada'ms. foreman of the .Shoe lanch. says Micky, a six-year-old pet deer that recrntlv disappeared from Ihf ranch, "was the greatest rabbit runner ever .seen in these pails." The deer, he said, ran with a pack jf stau hounds that followed the feed wagon on the range. "When the dogs flu-lied a jackrabbit the deer led the chase," said Adams. "Running, well in front, ihe big buck made it his business lo keep Ihe rabbit in open country lo to act as a . guide post when running through tall j ;age. The dogs never lost track of a rabbit. If they couldn't see it thev jusl followed Micky through. "It was different, though, if the dogs flushed a coyote. The deer, whose 'i natural enemy is a -coyote, followed '• the pack at a safe distance. I "But he never failed to catch up in time to deliver the death thrust with his broad antlers."
