The lungs contain spongy masses
of air cells. Around these the blood
flows and reaches every cell THAT
these cells cdmes the oxygen needed
to burn the impurities out of the
blood before it is sent on its way of
rehabilitating the body.
Breathe deeply, then, to keep all
the cells of the lungs open and ready
to supply the blood with oxygen. Ex
hale with force, too, for the blood on
its return trip carries waste material
in the form of carbonic acid to be
thrown off when the ah is expelled
from the lungs.
Before taking deep breathing ex
ercises remove tight collars, waist
bands, corsets or tight wearing ap
parel of any kind, even shoes. These
things restrict the flow of blood.
Next stretch and bend the legs,
arms, hands and fingers. Work each
joint back and forth. Stretch and'
twist the neck. tfThis clears the way
for free blood circulation. Then be
gin your deep breathing.

It will be told by Dr. Bishop in The
Day Book tomorrow.)

Tails are long, slender affairs that
were hung on animals by Divine
Providence and on human beings by
Charles Darwin.
Maybe Darwin was right, but the
fact remains that today we wear
them only on our shirts.
Maybe we did "swing from trees by
them, as he says. But what of it?
It was darn sight more civilized than
swinging by our necks.
Personally,, we've never had any
fault to find with tails. We often
wish we had one. We could do lots
of things with a tail that we can't do
now. We could stay in bed and turn
off the alarm clock, for one thing.
Tails would give stenographers
both hands to read the paper with.
And think what a godsend they
would he to structural Ironworkers.
Stretch every muscle and joint be
fore beginnirtg your morning exer
cise in dynamic breathing.
