Ur. Lulu Hunt Peters Has
Taken Vast Rolls of Fat
Off Americans.
NEW YORK. June 22.—A -woman bas
, reduced tbe weight of the nation four and
• half million pounds! That's equlva
dent to 30.000 persons of 156 pounds each.
She is Hr. Lulu Hunt Peters of Los
Angeles. Many pounds overweight, she
set out to come down to normal. She suc
ceeded, wrote a book and passed the se
cret on to 150.000 others, who lost an
average of thirty pounds.
Would you like to reduce this summer?
Then read the following article.
Author of “Diet and Health With Key to
the Calories."
Do you want to reduce?
Then remember—
Over-eating is the cause of overweight
800 times out of 1.000.
We are too fond of food—particularly
Sweets. We have not known food values.
As l result—
Three-quarters of the adult population
Os this country are too fat 1
Some of them have taken to dieting—
Without results.
I know I did when I was a little girl.
P wis fat and hated it. So I decided to
fat down on my earing. I would go with
>ut supper, taking instead —
An ice cream soda—more fattening than
the meal!
Yet that is the way many persons diet.
No wonder they can't reduce.
But anybody—no matter how fat he
may be —can lose weight by going at it
scientifically. It’s simple.
1. Find your ideal weight. To do this,
take your height in bare feet, multiply
the number of inches over five feet by
6% and add to 110.
2. Shrink your stomach. Fast fcr a
day or two. Drink nothing but water.
If you feel that is starting it off too sud
denly. take a few glasses of skimmed
’milk, muttermilk or fruit juice.
3. Exercise. Ten or fifteen minutes a
day of vigorous setting up exercises are
necessary—besides brisk walking, stair
climbing and active work.
4. Take a cold bath every day—if you
react well.
5. Keep busy. If your stomach tries
to remind you that you are hungry—Just
drink some water.
6. Reduce while you sleep. Always re
tire with your stomach fairly empty.
7. Count your calories. It’s simple.
Here's a list of popular foods which have
100 calories each:
One large slice of bread, one-half inch
One pat of butter.
One large egg.
One moderate size potato.
Two ounces lean meat.
ynree ounces lean fish.
Three cubes of sugar.
One pound watery vegetables—lettuce,
cabbage, radishes, etc.
One large apple, orange or pear.
One quart consomme—without fat.
Three ounces of cream soups.
One and one-eighth inch cube of
Five ounces milk.
Ten ounces skimmed or fat-free butter
Ten peanuts.
Four walnuts.
But remember this: one ordinary slice
of pie has 306 to 400 calories, one ice
cream soda 500 to 600 calories, one pound
of chocolates 2.500 calories.
8. Balance your diet. See that you get
your calories from:
* a. Some carbohydrates and fats for the
ifuel foods. Cut these down, but not out.
' b. Many vegetables, especially of the
teafy type. Scrub clean and eat raw. Dc
the same wi*h fruit.
c. Protective foods—milk, and Its pro
ducts. and leafy vegetables on account of
their vitamlnes and essential salts.
and. Enough protein to supply your re
pair needs.
0 Chew as you never chewed before.
Prolonged chewing reduces the appetite
and Is beneficial In many ways.
If you want to reduce one-quarter of
a pound a day, cut down 1.000 calories
of food under your maintenance allow
ance. The' fat of the body will make up
the deficit, and you will be reducing.
No reduction would be more rapid
than a pound or two a week—after the
first week. •
At first the loss will probably be much
greater—lo or 12 pounds perhaps.
But don't get soared. Stick to It.
Follow these rules and you are bound
to reduce not only your weight but living
i costs, too.
■ One man and wife who followed these
Ilnstructlons lost fifty pounds between
'them and reported a saving of more
than 530 a month on the butcher's and
grocer's bill.
Count your calories!

Public Stenographer Loses
Sparkler Worth $2,500.
| DALLAS, Texas, June 22.—When City
Detectives Coombs and Vinson are as
signed to “run down’’ anything they
“deliver the goods.”
Miss Penelope Llnnan, a public stenog
rapher, finding that she was devoting too
much attention to a brand new “sparak
ler,” valued at close to $2,500. which she
wore upon her left hand, removed It and
placed it on her desk.
Later in the day, when her mind again
reverted to the pleasant occasion upon
which the ring was presented to her, she
glanced lovingly to the spot where she
had tenderly placed It.
Horrors! The ring was gone.
After a frantic sear-h, without result,
Sliss Linnan called the detectives to her
eld. Promptly the sleuths decided the
ring must have been knocked into a
waste basket prior to the time when it
was emptied by a Janitor who sold Its
contents to a wholesale paper concern.
The “nawkshaws'’ called at the ware
house of the paper company only to
learn hhat they had disposed of that par
ticular lot of paper to another concern.
They hastened to the second warehouse
and, after bursting open a huge bale of
paper about to be shipped to a St. Louis
firm, found Miss Linnan’s treasure.

Democratic Editors
in Two-Day Outing
Many Indianapolis Democrats, lnclud
ing Samuel M. Ealston, nominee for
United States Senator; Charles A. Great
house, national committeeman, and Miss
Gertrude F. McHugh, secretary of the
State committee, left today for Madi
son to attend the annual two-day sum
mer outing of the Indiana Democratic
Editorial Association at Madison today
and tomorrow.
The outing was scheduled to be more
of a pleasure affair than a political
gathering, according to arrangements.
A trip through Jefferson County to
places of scenic beauty and a moonlight ]
steamboat ride on the Ohio River were
planned as features. A business session
will be held Friday afternoon at which
Mr. Ralston will deliver an address.

favorable condition for the development
of "mental weeds.’’
"I think we lose more by turning our
children loose without any direction for
their mental anil physical activities in
the summer than we would if we kept
them in school all summer long.’’ The
playground, properly directed, meets the
requirement for supervised activity,

garden to play and the only equipment

“We can not have too many play

“I don't see how any right thinking
person could be in favor of anything but
as many playgrounds as possible because
they promote good citizenship in chil
dren as much as any other factor,’’ said
Mrs. W. W. Reedy, president of the
Central W. C. T. U. “Money spent upon
recreation facilities, whether by the tax
payers or privately is very well spent.
Our union recently adopted resolutions
indorsing Mayor Shank's plan to give
Indianapolis a lake or lagoon. We favor
more swimming pools and all kinds of
recreational facilities for the children.”
The Irvington Mothers' Study Club is
in favor of “more playgrounds Instead
of fewer,” said Mrs. James Clay, presi
“I was very much disappointed whqn
I saw what Lew Shank was intending n>
do,” she said. “I hope the decision is
not final and that the number of play
grounds will be increased.”
“Many children have no place to play
except in the streets or on the play
grounds. Every mother agrees the play
ground is far the best place.”
Mrs. B. S. Gadd, chairman of the pro
gram committee of the Local Council of
Women, who was a member of the child
welfare committee last summer, said she
did not believe money should be saved
on the eh: dren. She has observed con
crete evidence of the value of play

Mayor Shank's open-air theaters are
a good thing and she had not a word
of criticism against them, she said, but
the better plan would be to provide both
theaters and numerous playgrounds if
the money Is at all available. Mothers
feel safer when their children are on
properly supervised playgrounds, she
“I think the open-air shows ars clean
There is nothing objectionable about
them that I can see. I think they are
a fine thing because they provide many
mothers with recreation they could not
get otherwise." said Mrs. M. L. Rtlffel,
president of the council.
“But at the same time I believe if it
is a question of theaters or playgrounds
the people prefer more playgrounds.
They are a necessity.”
The thirty-three playgrounds will be
opened Saturday.

grand Jury in city court today under
aonds of J 750 each by Judge Delbert O.

Harding Once Played in Band
at Marion, Department
Labor Head Reveals.
WASHINGTON, June 22—Secretary of
Labor Davis who played the clarinet la
the town band in Sharon, Pa„ many years
ago, in advocating the creation of a Fed
eral bureau of recreation for the develop
ment of instrumental and vocal music,
the drama, the theater and athletics
throughout the United States.
“To my mind,” the Labor Secreary
said, “there is no greater influence for
community and social good in the Amer
ican small town of today than the town
band. Some of the pleasantest recollec
tion of my life carry me back to the days
when I played the clarinet in the Sharon
band. President Harding preserves as
one of his proudest recollections the mem
ory of his association with the Marion
(Ohio) band in the days when he was Just
beginning to develop the character for
accomplishment which bore him to the
White House.”
Ie is Secretary Davis’s 'dea to have the ;
proposed bureau of recreation co-opera- (
tive with the States and the individual
communities in developing home and
community music.
“As to music I would adapt the Elsted
fodd idea of Wales to America,” he said.
“That means the organization nationally
of instrumental and vocal music, the
theater and all other recreations. This
national organization must begin in tbe
individual community. I believe that all
municipalities should have recreational
leaders. I would have every form of rec- !
reatlon, so that the humblest citizen could
really take part and enjoy it. I would
have community competitions, from which
the winners would go to county and Stute
competitions and finally to a great na
tional gathering.”
“The power of music,” Secretary Davis
added, “Is the most universal of arts
and has been recognized from the dawn
of civilization. Down the long centuries
from the dim ages to today humanity j
has marched or danced, plodded or gam- j
holed its way of progress under the in
spiration of music. From the Psalms
of David to the syncopation of modern
jazz, music has always been the one art
that entered Intimately the lives of most
of the world's peoples. Existence with- j
out music is a drab, dread thing for an
individual or a people. There is no
greater force for peace and happiness
than music.”
Dsvis believes that America could take
no single step that would advance th*
Nation along the road to happiness fur
(her than the establishment of a national
means of exercising the power of music.
He said that America can be organ
ized musically, because most American
workmen receive a saving wage, pointing
out that there are 40.000,000 people gain
fully employed in this country.
“Music has not only meant much in
the home life of every Welsh family,
but has always been one of the greatest
intsltutlons of that nation.” Mr. Davis,
who was born in Wales, continued. “Long
before the time of which we have actual
record there were great associations for
the furtherance of music lu Wales. Among
them the Gorsedd has lived down through
to the present day and is one of the
greatest influences in the national life
Under the auspices of the Gorsedd whole
communities gather together periodically j
for song.
“W r hlle with a touch of pride I like
to think of my native country as a lead
er In music and song, we cannot claim
that Wales is the only country that has
had the benefit of great influence from
music. Every country, every race, tribe
*nd clan, civilized and uncivilized, has its
music. As fHr back as any history that
we have of the oldest' civilization we
And musical instruments which resem

“The North American Indian was a
very musical being. He had a song for
every phase of his life, for every religious
and social ceremony. He had a different
rhythm or melody for the hunt, for
war. In his games, his prayers and his
• tourtshlps. Strango to say, the Eskimo
has put his music to a more noble pur
