By I'AT MULMNS (Courier 'News Soclcly Kditor) With Christmas and the New Year holidays approaching, every woman from teens to flattering forties will want to be a holiday glamour girl for the parties, dances and other occasions which are always numerous dui'ing the Yuletide season. No mutter how glamorous a new frock may be, you cannot look your loveliest, if holiday gorging will make you a bit on the "stuffed turkey" side in case you add a pound. Why not ' besin planning for your holiday glamour with a few simple exercises, done daily, so you ciin begin losing those inches now and prepare for rnjoying those wonderful holiday delicacies later. Exercise Is important the year around to keep the body lithe in m o v e m e n t, co-ordinated for smooth grace and balance, and youthful in tone. The proper mariner of performing exercise may not only take off pounds not needed, but in cases of the too-thin, it may be used to round out hips or legs. A word to the teen-age group: try from now until Christmas itav ing off that chocolate malted after school and other between-meal- simcks. Save the money you would have spent. Perhaps by Christmas you can help to buy your own "glamour gown"—and maybe in a size smaller than you usually wear. Before beginning your exercises, stand erect with feet together and arms relaxed. As you raise hands above the head, come up on tiptoe and breath deeply. Repeat five times. This forces good posture and prepares you for the more strenuous exercises. To flatten the abdomen. lie flat on the back, with arms at sides. Raise lc', r s at right angles from the body with soles*bf fccf, toward the ceiling. Lower legs very slowly to a count of 10. While lying on the floor, straighten legs and locS arms behind head. Touch left knee to right elbow and right knee to left elbow 10 times vapidly. To slim the hips and thighs. sit on the floor with legs straight and together and arms folded across chest. Bring the legs up with knees up to arms—almost un- dor the chin—10 times rapidly. If you have trouble with a not- so-smooth hip line or pones on up per thighs, stand In a corner with back to the corner and bump the upper thigh and hip, swinging the body from side to side. Perform this one for several minutes increasing a little each time. Also'for smoothing the hlpline, try this: Sit on the floor with knees slightly bent and feel flat on the floor. Performing a roll- ins motion from side to side, balance yourself with hands on the floor in back of body. For slimming the waist and upper hip, lie flat on the floor with the knot's against the chest and arms aside. Leaving your arms and shoulders flat roll the body from side to side. The arje old toe-touching exercise also slims the waistline and helps promote good posture by bringing the chest out of the waist. Good posture is vitally important to a perfect figure. Another help for a too-large waistline is to stand erect with hands on hips. Bend the trunk forward as far as possible, then back to starting position, backward as far as possible, and back to starting position. Repeat the same motion from side to side alternately with front to back motion. A few simple rules to remember in exercising; (1) it should be performed daily, not hit-or-miss; (2) it should be done at the same time each day—morning, afternoon or evening as the individual prefers; (3) you should wait at least an hour after eating to begin the exercise; (4> always take a quick tepid bath or shower when you have finished. After your work out and bath, recline with, your head slightly lower than your feet, and rest for 10 to 15 minutes. The holiday activities will be more enJDyable if you are sure of your charm by knowing that your newest frock fits flatteringly over your slim figure. PEO Group Has Christmas Party Mrs. J. A.
