Sixteen Logansport, Indiana Pharos-Tribune JOSEPHINE LOWMAN Extreme Underweight Has It's Health Penalties, Too Extreme thinness is a handicap to a woman. It imposes sharp angles rather than soft, feminine curves on her figure. It can give her hollow cheeks and rob her face of bloom. Those of us who must fight the bulge may envy our underweight friends and fail ; to understand that they are jusl as anxious to gain pounds as we • are to lose them. Statistics show that we have a much better chance for a vital long life if we are below, rather than above, the average weight -for our height. However, severe . underweight can have its health penalties, too. The nerves are not • so well insulated and the stomach and other internal organs may drop without sufficient supporting fat. For Health This can lead to fatigue, strains, lack of appetite, constipation and 'other unpleasant conditions. So if a woman is very thin, she should try to gain a few pounds because of her health as well as for curves. I know of a woman who had been trying to gain for years without any success. She was very thin and very nervous. It was finally discovered that her stomach had dropped to such an extent that it crowded everything else. Her doctor prescribed a support, a special corset made to order for her. Within six months she had gained a number of pounds. Years later she is in perfect health and is the correct .Weight. • Even if you do not have such • an extreme condition, you may want to add a curve or two here or there. You can do this by building up underlying muscles. •Rise on Toe • Here is a goodd exercise for leg 1 .contour. Stand with your left side 'toward a chair and place your left hand on the top of the chair for balance. Kise high on the left toe as you swing your right leg for-ward with a stiff knee. Lower left "heel to the floor and return right leg to starting position. Continue. Rise as high as you can on your toe. When you are tired, turn your right side toward a chair, place your right hand on top of the .chair, rise high on your right toe as you swing your left leg forward. Lower heel, return leg and continue. This builds the calf muscles.

Dear Ann Landers: In your reply to the mother who caught her teenage son receiving smut mail, you overlooked an important fact. Naturally, when. Mom caught the boy dead-to-rights he played innocent. If his mother had known the score she would not have allowed him to get away with it. Apparently you don't know the score either. Smut dealers doi not send catalogues folders or order blanks unless requested to do so. When offers for pornographic pictures or literature come to the house you can be sure somebody sent away for it. In this case it may even have been the husband. So please Ann Landers, to use your own.phrase—"Wake up and smell the coffee." — HORSE SENSE Dear Horse: Sorry, you are mistaken. Smut dealers can and do, through devious methods, get their grubby hands on all sorts of mailing, lists. For example: A recent investigation by postal authorities revealed that smut peddlers obtained the names and addresses of stamp collectors, coin collectors and flower-lovers. So—I'm passing the coffee back to you. . » *. * Dear Ann Landers: Hecently you advised a young mother to ;ake that child psychology book and give her four-year-old a good swat right across the back porch.

' Dear Former Admirer: If you read this column regularly there should be no doubt about where I stand on brutality and violence. No child should ever be slapped in the face, struck on the head, Or across the back, arms or legs —and I have repeated my view times without number. I agree that psychology can be wonderfully helpful as a guide for raising children but there is no substitute for common sense and a mother's instinct.

I quit college last year because my Dad died and I had to go to work to support my mother and two sisters. I have no money for entertainment, fancy clothes, flowers or gifts. My girl, used to be satisfied with a movie once a week, walks in the park, bus rides arid hot dogs, but lately she's been cold and indifferent. Her mother is a snobbish, social-climbing woman who didn't like me to begin with. I'm sure she's been doing everything un- der the 'sun -to turn my girl against me. I'm a hard worker and in a few years I will be .a lot better off financially. My girl' says she loves me but I'm afraid I'm losing her. What can I do?—PANIC BUTTON Dear Panic Button: If this is love your girl caught a mighty light case of it. And don't blame her mother. Mom could talk herself blue in the face and it wouldn't matter if the girl's feelings for you were genuine. It sounds as if you two are out olf tune. A love song can't be a solo. It must be a duet.
