Copeland’s HEALTH TALK % “Slouchy” Health By ROYAL S. COPELAND, M. D. (United States Senator and former Health Commissioner of New York) One o! the common pieces of advice I give you is this: Get plenty Of rest, sleep, good food, fresh air, sunlight and exercise. You can see the reason for each of these factors of good health. But let me ask you a question: Why should you exercise? OR. CU'LLAND, That may seem like a senseless question, but Is it? Really, why should a person, who desires to be strong and healthy, take systematic physi cal exercise? The other day I heard a masseuse say to her patient, "Your arms are soft and flabby. You should take exercise to develop them,’’ To one who has no work to do with the arms, no lifting, no boxing to do, to have flabby arm muscles is of small consequence. If all the other muscles are hard and strong, the state of the arm muscles would make little difference. But here is the trouble: Unless you exercise every day, keeping the blood in circulation, keep ing the figure upright and trim, there will be trouble after a while. It won't be long before the abdominal walls relax, permitting the inter nal organs to sag from their proper places. Nature intended man to have his body muscles tight and firm, so to keep the abdominal organs in place. It was intended to have the back muscles in prime condition, In order that the backbone would be held in the upright position. It was planned to have the head held in such position as to take pressure on the big blood vessels and nerves of the neck. If you per mit your figure to slouch, the chin falls on the chest and there is sure to be interference with the im portant "triangles” of the neck. The abdominal wall is thin in spots. Unless the muscles overlying these places are firm and strong, PRICES WITHIN REASON is one of the recognized conventions of this place of business, but we can’t help wondering what has become of the little girl who looked forward to the day when she would wear long skirts. A long wait! No waiting by the road side with motor trouble or fouled fuel line if you use SINCLAIR gas. Its purity and filtered excellency pro tects you against the ag gravating trouble common ly encountered. You will find vour confidence in SINCLAIR gas and OPAL INE oil well deserved.

Weakness of the muscles, or undue use of the muscles here, may cause a break which results in what we call “her nia," or in the common speech, "rupture.” Unless there is regular exercise, the muscles of the diaphragm, which has an important part in breathing, may grow weak Then there may be shallow breathing and ill health in consequence. These abdominal muscles and the powerful diaphragm have an im portant part in helping to circulate the blood and fluids of the body. They help the intestines to perform their function. Unless there is such general exer cise as to keep all the muscles in first-class condition, those that sup ply the walls of the intestines them selves won't be able to do then work. You can sec how necessary this action is. The bones of the pelvis are held in place, as indeed are all the joints, by certain ligaments. Unless the muscles are strong, the ligaments are not helped to do their work. In the case of the pelvis this condition may result in certain neuralgic pains. In the big blood vessels, especially in the veins, are muscles which must be in normal state, if they are to help the circulation. The heart is almost all muscular tissue. Without systematic exercise the muscles cannot be kept in condition to do their work. Don't fail to do your part to keep them strong. In cidentally, you keep your figure and good looks. Mrs. M.

Solid South Going, Dr. Chase Believes Surrendering; To Same Forres That "'Americanized Furope,” lie Says. Winter Park. Fla Disappearance of the "Solid South" through sur render to the "same forces that are Americanizing Europe" was pre dicted by President Harry W. Chase of the University of North Caro lina, here in an address on the "disappearing south" at the Rollins college first annual institute of statesmanship. "This section beeame highly con ventionalized through the develop ment and great concentration of wealth in the hands of a com paratively small but very powerful class of large planters.” President Clia.se recounted «■ "And with the aristocracy of family and wealth was established its new system of operation.” The section flourished and grew strong and powerful, he said, and inevitably developed an underlying system of philosophy to justify its basic institutions. President Chase described how the South broke with the "Jeffer sonian ideal" and how growing economic power and attractiveness of the southern labor system " con firmed this section in its view that government must need represent property end privilege." I.ater, President Chase asserted, came a new culture, order, con sistent. and correlated, the sort of culture that had distinctiveness and such individuality as seen “now and then in someone about whom clings the air of being a real per sonage in a great world." He described the solidifying of the cultural system by the recon struction days and told how the so cial pattern of those days is dis appearing.

This amendment, which Is aimed I primarily at Corporations, sets forth 'in detail certain methods of hiding income which it declares to be Ille gal. and gives the state government the power to collect taxes on what the income of the corporation actu ally was For example, this section requires that, when because of an j Interlocking directorate, a corpora tion sells goods to another which [controls it, at a price below the [general market price, that it shall j be taxed on what Its profits should have been with the prevailing mar ket prices in that business. I.aws To He Same. In an effort to bring the state collections up to the level of the federal collections, the finance com mittee inserted in the law another provision, which requires the state [revenue department to adopt rules i similar to the federal treasury’s rules for calculating incomes. In addition to increasing collections, tliis section will aid business men who have been required to keep two sets of books, one to ascertain their taxable income under the fed eral rules, and another tc nscertaui their taxable income under the state law. The defeated Johnson bill, which was estimated to bring in $500,000 at least in additional revenue, pro vided that whenever a taxpayer received a notice from the federal government that his Income tax re turn was incorrect, he should notify the state department. If the tax payer failed to do this, he could have been Immediately Indicted for a violation of this law. The stale can still collect from these taxpayers, by making arrange May Rule Canada Growing out of the appoint ment ot Prince George, young est son of King George of England, to $1,000 a year clerical position in the foreign ofiice, rumor* are around that the King is grooming his sons for governor-generalships in the dominions and that Prince George will become the next Governor General of Canada.
