PAGE EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, APRIL 15, 1942 * CLEVELAND (UP) — Stella Walsh, fleet-footed woman athlete of Olympics fame who keeps fit by working out 30 minutes each] day, believes that all Americans should adopt a similar program. ISo concerned is Stella over the physical fitness of Americans that she has written to the Office of Civilian Defense at Washington offering her services in any capacity. , 'If all of us work out for half an hour a day we'd have a much healthier country," Stella said. . Thirty minutes each day, she confided, keeps her at the peak which enabled her to win 650 trophies and 64 world and national track and field records during the past 14 years. Regular Schedule Necessary ;Despite the long list of shattered records which Stella has left behind her, she urges moderation in all exercisss and not "to try to break records." "It's moderation that counts," she said. "No one should try to break records unless they intend to make sport part of their life work. "But, general, Americans take athletics too lightly. There is no regular schedule of training in athlctice that is so necessary for ' physical, fitness. "The Americans have produced ttis "world's finest athletes. They are the standout performers. But the general public itself is not as fit as in many other countries where there is controlled athletic training." /Born Stanislawa Walasiewicz— a name changed when she began breagirig records 14 years ago— ..Stella's career hasn't been a meteoric one in which she flashed before the athletic world and then faded. Instead she has maintained • her record-breaking pace through the years. In her first competition she broke the women's national record for 50 yards. Praises Jap Woman The last record to fall before her flying feet was last year at Cleveland when she eclipsed N the 220- yard women's indoor mark at the Knights of Columbus track meet. She has smashed records in the javelin throw, in broad jumping and in sprinting. In 1932 she was nominated as one of the 10 outstanding amateur athletes of the year: " « I Basketball is more important to' her these days. Five years ago she organized a Polish women's basketball team which has become one of the nation's greatest women's teams. Despite her present war feelings. Stella--main tains that the finest woman athlete she ever met—and she has met those in practically every nation of the world on her tours — was a Japanese woman, Kinu Hitomi.

This distance is twice the aver- aye. Main is glad to pass along his .secret to the millions who are nursing their tires—over-inflation. His driving record was set on a one-half ton picx-up truck. .He carried 45 pounds of air in the front ties, 50 in the rear. He does the .same with his passenger car. "The directions say to carry 28," said Main, "but I carry 36 pounds." He began stretching the rubber over the miles when the new truck A r as delivered to him April 11, 1933. It came equipped with regulation jOOxlG tires; the first thing Main lid was to over-inflate them. He checked them regulaly He lm<5 driven all over Ohio, in alleys, across lots and has hauled considerable loads. "I never try to beat anyone to the traffic light,' he said "and I never drive over 60 miles an hour." He has kept the truck in excellent condition, rotating the tires regularly. He had several punctures, but never ran the tires flat. Two of the three tires still are bcng used on the passenger car and probably will be retreaded. Proper Care Of Suit Beats Wool Shortage To Mrs. William N. 'Vize, Greensboro, N. C., goes the honor of being named "The American Mother of 1942" by "the Golden Rule Foundation. The mother of 13 children, Mrs. Vize has helped her husband build a profitable coai business. cider or wine vi'negar, sugar and 2-3 cup of the bouillon. Stir constantly until the juice thickens and the mixture is very hot — about 5 minutes. Pour over meat balls and serve immediately with hot, boiled rice. By NEA Service 'Possible rationing of men's I clothes, as a result of the wool shortage, makes proper care imperative. A suit, topcoat or over- 'coat will last twice as long if given considerate treatment. The same applies to women's woolen garments. A good woole suit will take a beating, but. Avoid too-frequent pressings. Hand pressing is better for the garment than machine pressing. Before pressing, always brush fabric thoroughly; always use a damp .cloth under the iron. Let suits stand 24 to 48 hours after pressing, giving creases a crance to "set." If you have several suits, wrar them alternately for better "mileage." They regularly need a minimum "rest" of one or two days. Always hang suits on hangers as soon as removed. Suits are made of wool not only because of their insulation qualities against heat and cold, but because it springs back ito shape if allowed to hang. Wooden hangers are better than metal.
