Men Get Best Of Bargain In Cigaret Hunt By RUTH MILLETT In a southern city a woman re porter conducted a private survey among cigaret smokers and dis :overed that men were having bei. ;er luck than women in the hunt 'or cigarets. In spite of the fact hat women do most of a family's marketing and shopping and so ;hould have more prestige with ilerks, they can’t get cigarets. But. then, men always fare bet er than women when they are ■eady to spend money for some hing they want. Men get much letter service in restaurants than io women. The reason is supposed o be that they are better tippers, lut even the poor tippers among men seem to command more re ject than women who are known o tip well and unfailingly. And in stores it so often is fhe man who gets waited on in a hur ■y, while women customers are illowed to wait while two sales ilerks compare notes on the eve iing before. Men are treated more respect ’ully, too, when they go to buy heatre tickets or ask for railroad tccomm odations, or when they walk into a store and ask inno :ently for an article that has ieen off store shelves for months xniiivci o siiiiii uioiinvxivu The reason usually given for men’s better treatment is that hey are better spenders. But that is just a rationalization of a fact ive don’t like to face. The fact is that men command more respect and are treated more courteously than women— iust because they are men. Even in America in 1945 that is still a distinction that women ran’t equal, no matter how much more of the nation’s money they spend than do the men.

ANDREWS , Written Exclusively For AP News features 1 If you are an office worker and have "no time” to exercise, try 1 to keep fit while on the job. You can build your own "keep fit” program by getting exercise from many of your daily tasks. This program can begin as soon as alarm rings and can be carried throughout the entire day. 1. While still lying in bed, stretch your arms, your legs, your fingers, your toes. 2. "Curl” forward as you throw the covers off your feet. Repeat the "curl” several times, breath ing deeply. 3. Swing both legs high over the side of the bed as you get up. 4. Stand while putting on your shoes and stockings. 5. Get off the street car a few blocks from your work and walk the rest of the way. 6. Walk up one or two flights of stairs or down three or four in-! stead of using the elevator. 7. When you sit at your desk, push your hips back against the chair and keep your shoulders low. 8. Change your position occa sionally; raise and lower shoul ders; cross and recross your legs. 9. Get the habit of pulling in the abdomen when reaching across the desk. 10. Be glad of the chance to pick up something from the floor and in doing so, be sure to bend your knees. 11. Stand with weight on both feet, not on one or the other which will make you lopsided. 12. When you go to bed, wiggle your toes and massage your feet, and just before you “jump-in” take another stretch for good luck.
