THE BATTLE OF THE BULGE' GOES ON BY ALICIA HART The season's fashion emphasis is on the rounded hipline, not the bulging one. Don’t count on the new dresses with hip fullness to conceal an extra bit of padding on the thighs—they may accentu ate it. If, instead of having a graceful curving line from waist to knee, which movie star Jane Russell can boast, your hipline ripples with an excess of fatty tissue on the thighs, it’s time for you to start special exercises, and do them faithfully every day. Limber up with a few high kicks and be as energetic about it as a chorus girl. At first, you may want to brace ^ourself by putting a hand on the back of a chair. Swing the left leg forward as high as you can with the knee stiff and the toes straight; then swing it backward as far as you can. Do this 15 times with each leg. nuw r utv in£i nuivao Now you are ready to stretch out on the floor and work in earn est on those trouble spots. Lie on the right side, your head pil lowed on the right arm which is stretched flat on the floor above the head. Steady yourself by resting your left hand on the floor in front of you. Raise your legs so they just clear the floor, and swin| them in a scissors motion back and forth for ten full counts. Reverse and do the same On the left side. Gradually increase the number until you are clipping it off 20 times on each side. This exercise pummels those fatty pads with the vigor of a Swedish mas seuse. Standing erect again, hands on the hips, feet together, swing the left leg out in front as high as you can. Bring the leg back to the floor and swing it straight out to the side as far as possible. Al ternate with the right leg 15 times, and gradually- increase to 25 times.] To get the most out of this ex ercise, keep your back straight and your knees stiff. And don’i dilly dally with it — this on$ re quires plenty of pep. '"•--..JANE RUSSELL: Kicking keeps her slim and trim.— ^ We, The Women We've Forgotten the Secret of Christmas BY~RUTH MILLETT i Have we grownups completely! forgotten what makes a happy Christmas for children? It looks that way. Parents of small fry in the toy stores are pushing each other around to buy tricycles at $5 4.5 0 thinking a kid has to have an electric train THIS year, getting so excited over the mechanical toy shortage that a store in New York seri- Rath Millett ously advised its customers to camp on its doorstep if they want ed the new toys. Have we forgotten that kids don’t expect expensive and elabo rate gifts from Santa unless the grownups put such ideas in their minds, or encourage them when they get such ideas from their playmates? Have we forgotten that a child can have a wonderful Christmas if he helps pick out and make decorations for a tree, if he isn’t encouraged to ask for too much— and then receives a little more than he has been led to hope for, other members of the family, bought, wrapped (however clum sily) and hidden by himself? Christmas Is Spiritual Don’t we know that what makes a really good Christmas in any family is the happiness the season brings, the spiritual closeness to God and to family and friends, the joy of giving? Little children don’t need ex pensive toys to make them happy. And older kids can be told the Christmas still hasn’t come when they can have elaborate presents. So why are the grownups in such a dither? It must be we’ve lost the true spirit of a family Christmas and that is why we are pushing and shoving in stores as though Christmas would be a dis appointment if Johnny doesn’t get a certain toy—no matter the cost. Exercise For A Fresh Look iHii 1 ■■■■■■ - — By ALICIA HART Practical shortcuts to beauty are | as important to the busy home maker as they are to the career girl who has a minimum of time to spend at her dressing table. A rapid beauty fresh-up routine was developed by Jinx Falkenburg. star of “Meet Me On Broadway,” during the last four years when she spent a great deal of time trouping for the USO. The same simple exercise that Jinx used to get the kinks out of her muscles, after a prolonged trip on a “bucket seat” of a plaie, is wonderfull for necks and backs tired from too much typing or ironing. Stand with your feet apart and go completely limp with arms, shoulders and head hanging in i Raggedy Ann fashion. Flop your head around until your ne:k feels completely relaxed. Continue down the line and roll the shoulders, flip the arms and hands, bend limply at the waist and let your body flop from side to side, shake each leg loosely, twist your ankles and ; wiggle your toes. Last of all, sl^rnd against a wall and flatten your back, hips and shoulders until they are in line. ; The small of your back should be pressed as flat to the wall as you can get it, to keep your hips tucked under where they belong. Now that your posture is good, you’ll feel the swifter circulation carrying away the fatigue, and the whole business didn’t take longer than five minutes.

A first cre..ming is followed by a second one which is wiped away with tissues soaked in witch hazel. Spotlessly clean, your skin needs only your regular make-up and you can be on your way completely refreshed. Quatemalian Ambassador Returns Home On Visit WASHINGTON, Dec. 18. — (#)— Dr. Edwin J.
