As a people we are taller and heavier than we were 50 years ago, but individually we eat about 100 pounds a year less food. Incidentally, if you want to stay sweet-tempered, don't cut down on your calories too drastically. Hunger makes you irritable and angry. One tradition says that- a gift of pearls : to a bride will bring her happiness. Another tradition holds that a bride's pearls "represent the tears she will shed in her married life."

Our quotable notables: "There was never yet a philosopher that could endure the toothache patiently "T -William Shakespeare. Oldtime vaudevillians were among the most superstitious of performers. They thought it brought bad luck to whistle in a dressing room, to throw a hat on a bed, or get a No. 13 train berth. Many also thought it was courting disaster to deliver the last line of an act. during a rehearsal, or to rub on cheek rouge with a powder puff instead of a rabbit's foot. Worth remembering: "The best solution for dandruff is a tweed suit"—Arnold H. Glasow. The heat created in the sun is equal to the energy produced by one billion hydrogen bombs exploding every second. Zoo gorillas are often fed raw meat, but in the wild they are strictly vegetarians. The erroneous idea that ostriches stupidly try to hide their head in the sand when threatened probably arises from the fact that these birds, when resting, often squat down and stretch their neck out flat on the ground.

CHICAGO - Scars, Roebuck A Co. expects to spend more than |86 million for newspaper advertising this year, the company announced today. George M. Struthera, vice president in charge of merchandising, gave this estimate based on preliminary reports and forecasts for the remainder of 1963 from more than 750 Sears retail stores across the nation. At the same time, he reported actual expenditures in 1962 established a new record of $5B million for newspaper advertising. This was $5 million more than the 1961 expenditure, he said, and represented the fourth consecutive year that Scars newspaper advertising has topped $50 million. Struthers noted that in 1962 the company's retail stores purchased 286.5 million lines of white space in 921 daily and weekly newspapers — located in every state except Alaska, where Sears has no retail stores. Linage increased 7.9 per cent over 1961-, he said, while the cost of space increased 9.4 per cent. 71 Per Cent of Total The $58 million represented 71.2 per cent, of Sears total retail media expense of $81.4 million. Advertising through circulars, magazines, radio and television, and miscellaneous media accounted for the remainder. The number of Sears stores has increased from 625 in 1948 to a total of 748 at the end of 1962. In addition to this increased number of stores, nearly 200 new stores have been built to replace older, smaller stores. In the same 15 years, Sears stores have invested more than $600 million in newspaper advertising. And the company's sales have doubled—from $2.3 billion in 1948-to $4.6 billion in 1962. "This is tangible evidence of our .continuing faith in the potency of newspaper advertising," Struthers said. Sears has previously announced plans to . spend approximately $100 million for expansion this year. It plans to open 27 new retail stores, including 17 in communities which have no retail stores and 10 which will replace older stores with new and larger buildings.
