THB« OOBSICANA SEMI-WEEKLY LIGHT, TUESDAY, .FEBRUARY T, IS89. HEALTH, BEAUTY AND POISE HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR PERSONALITY By VERONICA DENOBI. ALLURING ANKLES Pretty ankles are the aecrct •wish of every woman. If she already has them, It Is a joy to have someone comment about. It; but If ahe hasn't, she Is always a bit envious of those who do. The fact Is, you can Improve your ankles quite a lot If you will work on them. The exercise I have for you today is sure to Stretch out from the thigh to the heel. reduce fatty accumulation at this point, because It brings new circulation, which helps to carry off the waste deposits. Another advantage of this exercise—because it does stimulate circulation—Is 'to make the feet warmer. I'm sure there Is nothing much more discomforting than cold feet, unless it might be cold hands; so if you are troubled with this condition, the exercise is beneficial for this alone. And, again, quite a few women are troubled with shortened tendons at the back of the leg due to the fact that they have worn high heels for a long time (and started to wear them At too early an age). I even have a friend who must walk around on tiptoe when she takes off her shoes; and she can never wear low-heeled sport shoes. This is very bad from a health standpoint, and should bo corrected. • So today's exercise is Important for three reasons, and all of us should do it for one reason or another. Sitting straight back in your chair, extend the right foot far forward, raising tho thigh Just a little off the chair. Stretch out from tho thigh to the heel as hard as possible, and turn the toes toward you. You will feel a tensing of the muscles. When these muscles seem to quiver, give the foot—still holding the toes inward—a quick jerk or kick upward. Return to tho floor and relax. Now do this with the other foot. Notice how the heel of the foot feels a bit looser in the shoo. Take off your shoes, and repeat several times. Always be sure to push tho heel outward and turn the toes Inward as you tensa the muscles. The stretch is the Important thing, of course, and kick as high as you can. Today I am starting a weight- gaining routine for those neglected, too-thin people. I don't blame them for complaining that everyone wants to help the, heavies. I'm out to correct this oversight. Tomorrow I shall have many helpful suggestions for you.
