July 27, IW TlF,S MOINKS St.'NDAY RKfilSTKR ijfl? To Correct Flabby Arms Why Grow Old? By Josephine Lowman mODAY'S EXERCISE is firming to your -L arms. The flabby arm is one of woman's most prevalent and persistent figure defects. Sit on the floor with your legs straight out in front of you. Place your hands on the floor behind you, fingers facing forward and elbows straight. Lower your trunk by slowly bending your elbows. Raise your trunk by straightening your elbows. Continue for eight times. Gradually increase the number of times you do the exercise each day. "Why Grow Old?" 1 ' appears dally on Hit women's pages of The Des Moines Tribune. What Women Say. (By the Associated Press) S OME QUOTABLE quotes from women during the week: "The evening has been absolutely perfect. Jt is an honor and a privilege to share with a husband, the crew, the Manned Spacecraft Center, the "American public and all of •mankind this magnificent experience of the beginning of rfunar exploration." ' Mrs. Neil Armstrong, after her husband became the first 'man to set,foot on the moon. • • • "It is hard to think it was real until the men. actually moved." Mrs. Edwin Aldrin after her husband and Neil Armstrong walked on the moon. • • • "I thought it was jantas- tieally marvelous . . . Don't you think he is with them there in spirit?" Mrs. Michael Collins, whose husband remained in the command module orbiting the moon, while Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin, jr., landed on the lunar surface. • • • "No. Really, I didn't. Anybody else but me." Gloria Diaz, 18, of The Philippines, the new Miss Universe, after being asked if she expected to win. « • ». "Success has cut down on my freedom a lot less than you'd think. I went in one of those New Yor/c department stores with $2,000 cash and they wouldn't wait on me. 1 had on bells around my neck and beads. It was good, though. It makes me realize . I'm like one of those regular weird people." Janis Joplin, top girl rock singer, in an interview. Involves Risky Surgery By Dr. Waller C. Alvarei O CCASIONALLY, a person who has a distressingly fat abdomen asks me if he could have a surgeon cut it off. Yes, that could be done. The o n1y t r o u h 1 e is that the re- s u 1 t a n t wound is so big that if it ever got in- fccloci, the person" would DR - WALT * R c have a miser- ALVAREZ able and dangerous time. A few months ago 1 told a woman of 60 that if she could accept the risk, 1 thought she would do well to try the operation. She writes to say that she had the operation and it was a big one, all right; she had 25 pounds removed, and had 92 stitches, but there was no trouble, anfl now she is very happy with a better- looking' figure. Cancer ConMgious ? I GET MANY letters a year from mothers who are terribly alarmed. They say they won't let their children play with the child next door because his parent has a cancer or recently died of a cancer. They fear that cancer is contagious. Actually, I wouldn't be worried if I had to live in. the same house with a person with a cancer. To show how little contagious cancer is, I remember surgeon, Dr. Nicholas Senn, who back around 1898, when he was operating on a man with cancer, took a little piece of the tumor; he made a cut in the skin of one of his arms, he put the bit. of cancer under his skin, and sewed up the cut. The cancer did not grow. , It is possible that people who fear that cancer is "catching" have been influenced by discussion of the possibility that human cancer is due to a virus. I How to stretch space in a small bedroom. Store It on the Wall! By Mary Rryson (The Register'! Home Furnishings EcMor) F YOU ARE short of floor and storage space in your bedroom, you can solve your problems with a storage wall. Here wardrobe, dressing table or desk, chests and shelves are all combined in one Danish-designed system by Royal Co. You can add more drawer or shelf units if you wish, simply by hanging them on pegs which fit into the rows of oblique holes in the rails or wall panels. The system is available in teak, oak. rosewood or walnut. Because most of the furniture is up off the floor, it's easier to clean a tiny room. Note the decorative accents on top shelf: A row of baskets add an airy touch as they store seldom-used items in otherwise idle space. Colors are space-expanding blues and whites, which are used in solid tones for walls and carpeting and in dramatic patterns for bed cover and floor-tu-ceiling window shades.
