Let's resume our exercise lessons today. I have a splendid one for those of you who are annoyed with bulges on the haps and on the upper thigh. As you •will notice, the girl In the picture Is lying on her side with one arm under her head and the other used to support her In balance. The legs should be held straight with the knees as rigid as they would be It a steel pipe were strapped down the back of the leg. Now move the legs back nad forth In quick vigorous strides, stepping forward then low for a continuous roll, you the 'amazement' of your other- can take the same position and roll over on the stomach from one side, and then over and tiack to the other side. It's really fun, and you'll find the children join- Ing you—but remember that the body must be kept straight and firm—don't roll In 'sections.' When are you doing your exercises? It you are a housewife, don't you find It a bettor plan to wnlt until the family Is gone and the house la yours? Then you can exercise for your own Do this exercise on your floor, or table-top backward as far a« possiple' without bending the knee. Count to 40 or 50 'strides, and then turn over and "walk" from the other side. It is best to do this exercise on a hard surface—not a soft rug—so that there will be plenty of resistance as the legs move back and forth. This exercise Is called the 'scissors" and will really do the work for you. The lower leg, remember, must be kept free of the floor except at the upper thigh, otherwise you cannot get a good pressure on the fatty tissue. You might now roll over on your back, and draw the knees up, encircling them with the arms. Roll over far to the left sld« but don't use the arms to push. Lot the push be done with the hips. Now roll back far to the right side, and continue back and forth for a good number of times, always using the hips to throw the weight over. Another version of this exercise which will help the lower buttocks and stomach. Cross the arms on the chest, laying full length, feet stretched out. Now roll over and over In a continuous movement from one 'end of •the room to the other, again using the hips to throw the body over. I know of several women Who depend on this exercise for , reducing and stimulation. If your room' is not large enough .to al- aenefit and amusement—not for wise devoted husband and children. The business girl who lives alone has an easy time working out her routine and can adhere very nicely to a plan—if she will. The business girl living at homo can best do her exercises In the privacy of her room before her morning bath and will be much more alert on the job as a consequence. Do plan to Incorporate an exercise routine Into your dally habits. Believe me when I. say that with very few exceptions, all of the beautiful women of stage and screen who look years younger than the number of birthdays they admit, closely follow a planned exercise routine. They choose a few stretching, limbering and reducing exercises that particularly fit their requirements— and then do them regularly day in and day out—year in and year out. Only by steady daily workouts can you expect to improve and retain your beauty, youth and health. Spasmodic, strenuous efforts will only result In sore, strained muscles, and then you have to quit again until the aches are gone. An raqnnti (or rereonal "Health.
