^ AVOID THAT
FUTURE SHADOW*
By refraining from
over-indulgence
Men w ho would keep that trim, proper form, women w ho
prize the modern figure with its subtle, seductive curves
—eat healthfully but not immoderately. Banish excessive
ness—eliminate abuses. Be moderate—be moderate in all
things, even in smoking. When tempted to excess, when
your eyes arc bigger than your stomach, reach for a lucky
instead. Coming events cast their shadows before. Avoid
that future shadow by avoiding over-indulgence if you
w ould maintain that lithe, youthful figure.
Lucky Strike, the finest Cigarette a
man ever smoked, made of the fin

"IT’S TOASTED." Everyone knows that
heat purifies and so "TOASTING" not
only removes impurities but adds to
the flavor and improves the taste.
"It’s toasted"
* Your Throat Protection—against irritation—against cough.
^♦Be Moderate!... Don't jeopardize the modern form by drastic diets, harmful reducing girdles, fake reducing tab*
lets or other quack “anti*fat” remedies condemned by the Medical profession! Millions of dollars each year are
wasted on these ridiculous and dangerous nostrums. Be Sensible! Be Moderate! We do not represent that smok
ing Lucky Strike Cigarettes will bring modern figures or cause the reduction of flesh. We do declare that when ,
tempted to do yourself too well, if you will “Reach for a lucky" instead, you will thus avoid over-indulgence
in things that cause excess weight and, by avoiding over-indulgence, maintain a modern, graceful form.

WHATAMAN NOT SEVEN FEET
TALL; FANS DISAPPOINTED
__
'Special to The Herald > I
HARLINGEN. Feb. 27-He wasn't
seven feet tall: the cane and spats i
were missing: his clothing was not
startling; he had no tin ears—in
fact. Art Shires looked very much
like an ordinary man. and Harlin
gen was slightly disappointed.
He was very much the same
scrappy belilgerant who plaved ball
in the Valley four years ago.
The Unmodulated Broadcaster
paraded down the Main Stem of
Harlingen Wednesday afternoon |
seated beside the mayor. Their!
ben mots were reserved to them
selves pretty well.
“It certainly pays to advertise.”
one disappointed customer said as
he craned his neck at the disap
pearing car, “to think that I came
20 miles for this.”
Wednesday evening. Shires was
truest of honor at a banquet held
at La Peria. A group of about
50 strained their ears to hear some
of Shires' far famed bashful
speeches, but they were not forth
coming.
Shires will remain in the Valley
several days, it is expected, before
reporting to the White Sox train
ing camp at San Antonio. Art is
now in a salary row with the Pale
Hose moguls.

the league with a standing of

players held the meeting and voted
to go ahead and play In the round
robin. Sanders was not present at
the meeting and knew nothing of
the gathering Thursday morning.

Yanks Attempt To
Outdo One Another
ST. PETERSBURG. Fla . Feb. 27
j —/p,—The New York Yankees evi
dently are trying to outdo one an
other in training camp stunts. The
atchers failed in their attempts to
snare balls tossed from an airplane,
so yesterday some of the other play
ers called in a Blimp plane and
caught a fewr balks thrown from
heights up to 380 feet.
The appearance of Robert Walsh,
second pitching son of Big Ed
Walsh of Chicago White Sox fame,
aroused most of the interest in
the regular workout. Rob took a
ten minute turn on the mound and
showed about as much ‘•stuff” ns
any of the hurlers at this stage.

other distances, Including the quar-1

tion to seeing the heavyweights,
who seek the honor he has discard
ed, do battle tonight, he has not
seen a ring since he climbed be
tween the ropes at the Yankee
stadium in July 1928 after his fare
well bout with the rugged Tom
Heeney at the Yankee stadium In
July 1928.
After a man has been knocked
down, said Tunney. the most im
portant thing (or him to do is to
get up. A(ter a man has an opera
tion his most important considera
tion should be to get well. He is
now making satisfactory progress
toward recovery o( his strength,
and when that is accomplished he
will turn his mind to thoughts of
business.
There was no sign of the invalid
about the former champion as he
his oldest friends at Miami Beach
where he did much of winter con
ditioning when he was the ruling
king of the heavyweight group.
He carried a cane to bolster a
side weakened by the surgeon's
knife, but the supporting stick
seemed to apologize for its pres
ence. there was no semblance of
excess poundage, and. in fact. Gene
reported his wreight 192 pounds, the
figure at which he boxed at his
best.
A really game boxer never hears
the count of ten.' he said. “If he
can hear, he will get up." and
again "the boxer who knows his
business, after he has been knock
ed down, remains down until the
count of nine. That nine seconds
belong to him, not to his opponent.
It is his and his alone, and he has
the right to it to clear his head.
Only a foolish person. per
haps some false pride, comes bound
ing to his feet before he has his
nine seconds res.t Probabiy he will
be knocked down again, and then
he may not be able to get up ”
The former champion talked free
ly and authoritatively on his only
knock down in the seventh round
of the second fight with Dempsey.
"I had often thought, of course
that I might be knocked down
somatime, and I had considered
how to offset this moment when,
and if It came. I could do Uttlt.
Dempsey kept his chin against his
chest, and I could not hope to land
a blow there. In 20 rounds I never
struck him on the chin. So I adopt
ed a third resolution. I circled end
cot in two terrific punches on * of
them the hardest I landed in eith
er fight with Dempsey.”
"What were your thoughts when
you found yourself on the floor?"
“How pleasant and how comfort
able it was there, and this, mind
you with one leg twisted up un
der my back.”
