If brisk walking begins to pall ns exercise to keep «i figure trim and circulation whipped up, why not supplement your hikes with roller skaling? Many women find lhnL a half-hour of skating is more exhilarating fun and, if taken on a smooth rink or oilier level surface, no more Unrig than a brisk walk. As an exercise. roller skating helps to limber up muscles and lo keep waistline, hips and legs trim. Proof that childhood skaling proficiency can be regained Is this picture of the model wheeling down 'a park . path. After 15 minutes of cautious experimenting first propping herself for a stable stance against a tree, then leaning on the arm of a friend lo lest her balance, she skaletl off confidently as you can see. —ALICIA HART, NEA SUff Writer.
