appealing it's important to have

the combination.

Luxurious Cape
SQUARE YARDS of ermine—
and a considerable footage of
sable—go into the stunning
ermine cape which Lucille Ball
wears in at least half the scenes
In her current production,
"The Big Street.”
Cape is snow ermine, floor
length, the parka hood banded
extravagantly with sable. The
girl Lucille plays in the picture
i« so attached to this wrap that
she insists on wearing It on
practically all occasiona.
Put Ceiling
On Weight
WHAT DO you think Uncle
Sam’s first move was when Con
gress got around to deciding in
favor of a feminine army?
Why, he promptly put a ceiling
on avoirdupois!
If you tip the beam at higher
than the standard weight chart
allowance for your height—and
age—you can’t get into this new
Women’s Auxiliary Army Corps.
But Uncle Sam is pretty
broadminded. As you get into
the 21 plus stages you are al
lowed to weigh more.
At the age of 21 you are sup
posed to weigh around 106
pounds for a height of 6 feet;
from 21 to 25 you can weigh
114 pounds for the same height;
from 26 to 30, you can go on up
to 117 pounds; from 31 to 35.
you are allowed to reach 120
pounds; from 36 to 40 a weight
of 123 pounds, and from 41 to
45 you can hit 123 to 126
pounds top.
The scale goes up to a maxi
mum of about 171 pounds for
women f feet tall.
Normal Weight
But regardless of age, the
best women soldiers will be the
ones who hold their normal
Whatever you are entitled to
weight at 30 is your best weight
from then on.
You can see that weight has
nothing to do with age. Your
bones do not weigh more as
you grow older. Neither do your
Any increase In weight is
simply In fatty tissue and so
much extra burden.
Your normal weight really
depends on your structure.
With a stocky frame you can
weigh more than with a slight
frame. Therefore, a woman of
5 feet 5 inches can weigh up
to 135 poumls and be normal
With a very large frame she
could weigh as much as 146
pounds for normal. The varia
tion in structure changes the
weight figure.
Depends on Freme
Start your figuring on the
basis of a height of 5 feet and
give yourself 100 pounds, 106
pounds, 110 pounds and 120
pounds for a alight, medium,
stocky or a very large frame.
Then, if you have an excep
tionally large frame you can
get away with a bit extra.
For each inch over 5 feet you
are entitled to five extra pounds
of weight. And that is all there
is to this weight business. Your
structure is the deciding factor.
Check Weight
It’s nice to know that the
WAAC’s will be kept in good
shape with girdles. When we
get around to rationing these
garments they will be given
preference. That is at it
should be.
You may not be able to volun
teer but you would do well to
get into good condition. Check
up on your weight.
If you are overweight, you are
not as efficient as you should be.
The women who are left be
hind are going to have to do
more work and they can carry
on better with weight at normal.
