Women Add Inch and a Half
To Average Stature in 40 Years
Philadelphia Dressmakers Are Forced to Use More
Cloth Perpendicularly Because Outdoor
Sports Have Increased Height
Speoial Dispatch to The Tribune
PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 22.?They're
building 'em bigger. Dressmakers say
so. corseti?res agree there's something
in it, and now along comes cold, cal
culating science to explain why women
weigh more than they ever did before.
\\ omi n are no fatter, say the physi?
cal culture experts. They're simply
larger, and here's the reason: The
women of to-day are one and half
inches taller as a class than forty
years ago. Their chests are larger,
their waist lines have widened. Their
muscles have hardened. All this makes
them weigh more.
The changes, according to those who
have made a study of the s>-.bject, are
simple enough to explain. Women, es?
pecially during the last twenty years
or so, gradually havo been converted
from the clinging vine to robust per?
sons who are proud rather than
ashamed of the physical feats they can
accomplish. Participation in sports has
turned the trick.
"Time was." explained William Herr?
mann, a physical training expert, "when
a woman thought vigorous use of the
body and its muscles was unladylike.
All that has changed, of course, and
the gradual participation of women in
sports and various forms of exercise
actually has brought about a change
in her height and her figure. The
change in height is not simply a case
of athletics having taught a woman to
stand straightcr. It is an actual change
that can be measured."
In commenting on the change in the
feminine physique several Philadelphia
dressmakers said the change was prin?
cipally noticeable in a higher chest
a. .1 larger waistline, but that perhaps
the change in waistline was due more
to the dictates of Paris than any ac?
tual physical change.
Mr. Herrmann, however, holds that
there has been RCtual shifting in the
4'Tho oldtime hip measurement has
disappeared," he said. "This, of course,
does not actually mean that the hip
measurement lias grown smaller, but
the waistline actually has grown larger,
and gives that appearance. Chests have
been built up because exercise has
taught women to breathe properly and
slowly. It will add to the '"y |.irr, of
their life. To breathe, slowly is to live
longer. The tortoise, the slowest
breathing animal of all, lives a thou?

for Drowning of Kidnaped
Child, Keeps Silent De?
spite Pleas for the Truth
Roberto RafFaele was sentenced to
die in the electric chair in the week
beginning October 3 by Judge Alfred
J. Talley in General Sessions yester?
day for the murder of five-year-old
Giuseppi Varotta on June 3.
The sentence marked the climax of
one of the most impressive scenes ever
enacted within the Tombs. For fully
an hour in the morning Judge Talley
permitted Martin S. Wechsler, at?
torney for the doomed man, and a
brother-in-law, to plead with RafFaele.
They implored him to tell anything
he knew of the kidnaping and death of
the Varotta child. These pleas also
were made by Raffaele's aged mother,
who placed her arms about her son's
neck and sobbed on his shoulder.
Raffaele declared he knew nothing of
the bo;, f> drowning,
Raffaele then was led into court by
Under Sheriff John V. Coggey. The
prisoner listened unmoved to the
words sending him to his death. Then
he raised his arm toward Coggey, in?
dicating he decided to be guided back
tf the' Tombs.
?Rr.ffaele has a cataract over each
of his eyes and can scarcely see. He
was taken soon afterward to the death
in.use in Sing Sing.

Former Assistant Says John M.

of the Anderson Meyer Company and
chairman of the board of general con?

Joseph E. Corrigan in the Tombs court
yesterday on a charge of disorderly
The charge was' preferred by Arthur
Baum, of the Hotel Pennsylvania, who
was assistant to the former president
of the Pacific Commercial Company.
Baum stated that Switzer called him to
the hitter's office at 80 Wall Street on
August 15, and after calling him in?
sulting names attacked him with a cano.
Switzer said Baum had written a
letter to him, and as a result he called
Baum to his office to teil him the con?
tents of the letter were lies. The
court after reading the letter said there
was nothing in it to justify the assault.

It was recalled that the Tiffany
Street pier, where one stolen auto has
been recovered and where at least a

Third Avenue. The thief told just
enough about the case to result in tin

One mnrder committed at Clifton, X. ;
?T., yesterday and five unsolved mur- '
ders in Syracuse have been added to <
the list of killings charged to the
Sicilian Camorra. The additions brought j
the total of suspected Camorra execu- j
tions to' 132. !
Another killing yesterday at ?Mill- |
town, N. J., is under investigation as
a Camorra crime, but the facts are
not regarded by Detective Sergeant
Michael Fiaschetti, head o? the police
Italian squad, as good evidence that
the band directed the slaying.
Assistant District Attorney Selva-gge,
of Brooklyn, talked with Fiaschetti,
and later the detective announced that
ihrer, additional mysteries in Brooklyn
had been solved, The murders clearea
up now stand at fifteen in New York
and eleven in Detroit.

were those of Antonio Beneditto and ;

The two assassins had been brought
i from Detroit, Fiaschetti said, and after
' the Brooklyn "job" returned to that
I city, where both subsequently were
? killed by enemies of their band.
The detective refused to give any d?-,
I tails concerning the third Brooklyn
' murder solved, because the slayer.
? while identified, is still at liberty.
Bartolo Fontane, the barber, whose
confessions have thrown so much light
! on the Camorra crimes, was present at
the conference between Fiaschetti and
Salvagge. Later in the afternoon he was
subjected to a severe questioning by
Deputy Assistant District Attorney
: .lohn R. Hennis. Fontano appeared to
bo unaffected by the ordeal, and Mr.
; Hennis admitted he had been unable to

the details of his confessions.
