YOUR HEALTH Exercises Have Varifed Effects By Dr. Theodore R. Vai Dc)| e n (Copyright 1963: By The Chicago Tribune) Are Isometric or isotlnic exercises better (or middle-aged sedentary individuals than swimming, walking, of calisthenics? This question cbmes up repeatedly, now that physical fitness has become so popular. The answer is no, but there are good supplements. Isometric exercises ere helpful for young and old. They are done by contracting onu muscle against an opposing ur movable object. Stand in a doorway, raise the arms, and jress the hands as hard as possible against the sides of tte frame. Another maneuver is M put the fist of the right hand in the palm of the left and bush the two together for at liast six seconds. This type of exercisk is convenient, requires no sbeclal equipment, and sweatihg is not excessive. There is a limit to the amount of strength that can be achieved. Muscles enlarge and the abdomen grovs smaller. The body and joints do not move. The purpose of isolcnic exercises is to develop strength. They involve movemek in contrast to isometric exercises, and are done by contracting the muscles against increasing resistance. Usually a gadget, such as bar bells or duirbbells, is used. To gain strengti, the resistance must be ncreased; otherwise it remain, stationary. Muscle mass increases, explaining why those vho follow this program faithfully may become an Atlas, provided all the muscles are exercised in like fashion. Moving the] joints makes them more pliable. Isotonic exercises require great effort for a short perlbd but the rewards include greiter endurance, Jess fatigue, and a feeling of well-being. Walking, swimming, and calisthenics do not enarge the muscles or increase strength above normal. They! are enjoyable, preserve suppleness, and improve the circulation. In my opinion, the middle-aged office DRUG NAMES SUBDIVISION LOUISVILLE (AF) - When Dan Spalding competed a new subdivision recently, he named il "Mylanta." worker can take his pick because no exercine system Is superior to all others. A combination is ideal, particularly for strengthening selected groups of muscles and improving physical fitness. Dr. Van Dellen will answer questions on medical topics if a stamped, self-addressed envelope accompanies request. TOMORROW: Lessen Pressures in Stuttering. PAW ON RIGHT SIDE A.

NASON, Ed. D. University of Southern Calif. Dear Dr. Nason: Although my daughter talked very early, she was not pre- oclous in other things. Her first grade teacher felt hat she was not up to average. I thought the t e a c her was udging her by her shyness and Imldlty, so I bought books and iroceeded to teach her at home ifter school. She overcame her shyness to a great extent and started to mjoy school. Although her read- ng wad still below average, she passed the first grade. She became an A and B student In the second wade without help from me. Because of these marks she was placed in an accelerated class in the third grade. Her last report graded were lower — C in reading, in arithmetic, the rest B's. Tests show her to have a low average I. Q. How do you feel about her be ng in an accelerated class? Mrs. M. R,, Levlttown, Pa. Answer: A child with an average T.Q. cnn accomplish wonderful things if she uses her talents well. The help you provided In the 'irst grade- evidently gave your daughter an incentive and the skill to succeed in necessary school. It docs not seem right to kill this incentive by having her in a class geared to students with greater academic ability. Excellent work in regular classes will assure her a successful tour through the educational system. Some of the most successful college graduates I know have I.Q.'s in the average range. Dear Dr. Nason: The school recommends that I hold back my fi-year-old son to repeat the third grade because of his difficulty with reading. 1 am considering forcing the issue, pushing him on to the fo u r t h grade and tutoring him in rending during the summer. Do you think a better plan would be to keep him back in the third grade and still give him tutoring during the summer? Or perhaps he is too timid to read well in a large class. Mrs. M., Hasbrouck Heights, N.J. Answer: A timid child often gets a slow start in reading when placed with such a large group. The boy js one of those who pay the Syria was once the "bread basket" of the Roman Empire.

Me will still be well within the age range for that grade and not feel out of place. Either you or someone else should provide him, however, with an opportunity to practice reading during the summer so that he can start on an equal footing with the new class. This should do much to relievo his tension and make U possible for him to proceed through school happy and successful. Dear Dr. Nason: I have road your column concerning the training of teachers and would like to know wh*t benefits would be achieved by obtaining a masters degree in English. Would you please include financial benefits in your answer? M. P., Syracuse, N. Y. Answer: A background in Engl i s h gained while obtaining a masters degree should make you a more effective teacher. Whether or not you would gain financially depends upon the salary schedule of the school district where you arc employed. In some cases, teachers with masters degrees are placed a step higher on the salary scale. A higher salary every year of your teaching career Is worth working for. The masters degree is often required for teaching on the junior college level. Having 3m -' earned it, you would have a wid* er choice of employment.
