Thr •glider allllude mark is 1231 feet, set last, April by olyer Kronflckl of Vienna, and the siralglu-away distance recoid Is 07 miles, held lr- Erich Kronflcld, nlso of Vienna. ' But, privately at least, Colonel Lindbergh Is said to be hoping tr popularize gliders Just as he j popularized nirplnnes. The time .Is ripe becntise gliding, although widespread in Oernmny. is jiibt In Its infancy In the United Slates. Million filiders by 1033 Tile National Glider "Association, with headquarters at Detroit, ha; undertaken n program that call': for 1.000.000 glider pilots In llic United Stales In the next, three years.

' Colonel and Mrs. Lindbergh won their glider pilots' licenses recently only a lev day's apart, And (host who were present say that Lindbergh got a . bigger Ihrill out of watching Ills prcliy wife ninkc her first glider flight than he dirt lr. making his own. ' For once In his life, Lindy was just one of the crowd. He watched Mrs. Lindbergh go sailing away in the tiny ship, circle buck nnd forth in the same rising nlr currents and remain aloft six minutes. As the former Anne Morrow .walked toward the motorless plane, wearing n pair of Lindbergh's lone overalls,, she had the appearance of o small child, dressed In baggy sleepers nnd rendy to be tucked Into bed. Eight men seized (he ropes (ha! stretched before the g'lder. AS thi; cords were being pulled *• tout. Lindbergh crouched beside the little cockpit and' gave his wife a last word of advice. "Are you ready, Mrs. Lindbergh?" asked HaH'les' Bon-Ins, gilder expert and designer. "Yes," came the soft-spoken reply. "Let 'er go!" The motorless plane catapulted 50 feet Into the air. Gradually and silently, it sailed over the brow o' the hill and out Into space. "That's Mr-Wile!" A broad smile lighted the colonel's face. He looked as it he want- 'ed to point R proud finger to'.varri the little ship and stiy: "That's my wife!" Mrs. Lindbergh made a perfec'. landing on the sandy beach. "It was great funl" she exclaimed as her famous husband ran to her side. "I wish I could hnve brought it back nearer the landing place, but the wind died dou-n." " . It was Just a few days before that Lindbergh had won his glider license by a 31-minute flight over Point Lorna. Later, he made numerous flights in his mountain camp north of here where he ha;l gone In search of more favorable winds. Still seeking this—a steady, elght-mlle-an-hpur wind is best- he turned his attention to a new location.

Men and womtn, both, justly covet ad- roiration «rtd all may expect such satisfaction to its fullest extent if they arc tin possessors of a clear, unblemished skin. If you arc unfortunate in this rcspcf i you owe it to yourself and friends to remove the cause. Nature will thtn provide the complexion which is so much desired. More important still, strong healthy blood nourishes the body and fights against infection and disease. YOUTHFULNESS and BEAUTY are dependent upon a strong body — firm flesh ~ a clear siitv N OTHING is more beautiful, more inspiring, more glorified than the supreme manifestation, of Nature in the human body. Those sparkling eyes, that clear skin, that firm flesh, and that vigor of action dcnotinu vitality, bespeak loveliness and internal hcallhfulnfss. And so, is it not our birthright to be masters over our own bodies? To be sure not much is said openly about personal handicaps —skin, blemishes—sallow complexion— poor health — but iecretly they influence many important affairs. Skilled physicians recognize the appearance of skin blemishes, lack of appetite, flabby flesh and loss of energy as an indication that the body's power of resistance is low—that there is a deficiency of red-blood- cclls. This is why so many thousands, seekirijyou th- fulness and beauty, have taken a course of S.S.S. It helps Nature restore the blood to its normal staff.
