PITTSBURGH, Aug. 7—(U.R)— A

American woman has a lazy atti-

clined to rely on her husband’s
advice on how she votes.
Dr. Rosalind L. Branning; one
of the few women instructors in
political science, deserted the
ranks of her sex to make the
charge, but tempered it by assert-
ing that both men and women
should make a deeper study of
“Too many women are prone to
vote only on the advice of oth-
ers," Dr. Branning said. “Here in
America, where women have a
voice in the government, they
■should take an active interest in
Dr. Banning dispels the im-
pression that politics is a dry sub-
ject. “Politics can be Just as ex-
citing as any other subject," she
said. ‘The idea that it is dull is
due to a lack of understanding.”

Donner, noted fashion authority
r d the only woman director of
technicolor fashion films.
Miss Donner says the first re-
quisite of a fashion model is good
carriage and with that goes a good
figure. Many beautiful girls are
unable to make the grade as fash-
ion models because they don’t
know how to walk, stand or sit
gracefully. Maybe this is your dif-
ficulty, rather than excess weight
or any serious figure faults.
To acquire a figure that will
grace your summer sheers, the
first thing to do, according to this
authority, is "correct your pos-
ture.” Good posture means simply
feeling like a straight line, with
chest and head up, chin in, shoul-
ders back, abdomen flat and back
For correct walking and stand-
ing, she says, the feet should be
nearly parallel, toes pointing
ahead, the weight resting mainly
on the balls of the feet. Try to
make yourself as tali as possible
and hold your head high, but be
BLITZKRIEG ON FIELD MICE
SYDNEY, Australia (U.R)—Seven
thousand mice were killed in an
individual "killing drive” in New
South Wales where they are at-
tacking the wheat fields. One far-
mer reported that the heavy and
continuous stream of mice over the
iron bands holing the wheat sacks
together was so great that the nuts
became unscrewed, causing the
bolts to fall out.

careful not to throw your head so
far back that you feel as if you
were leaning backward with your
nose pointing to the heavens. Hold
your chest up. but don’t exagger-
ate it too much. Contract the
lower abdominal muscles and
make your stomach stay in where
it belongs. The back should be
straight, not curved.
If you have been in the
slumps, ’ you’re going to get
plenty tired when you first start
training your muscles. But don't
give up: it won’t last forever. The
muscles always need toning and
training for new positions. Miss
Donner recommends the following
exercises to help develop the mus-
cles for good posture and to give
you better balance:
Stand with your heels touching
toes pointed slightly outward!
stomach flat, and hands locked
behind the head. Balance your-
self and raise up on your toes,
keeping the body erect. Now here’s
the difficult part —slowly bend
knees to a squat position so that
you’re practically sitting on your
heels, still holding the body erect.
Keep this squatting position for a
couple of seconds, then raise to a
standing position slowly. Be care-
ful not to fall over backwards the
first few times. Go up on your toes
again, then down, repeating about
Another exercise that is very
beneficial is the following: Stand
barefoot, arms relaxed at sides,
palms forward, with the heel of
one foot directly in front of and
touching the toes of the other foot.
Now, balance yourself, pull your
stomach in, and put most of your
weight on the forward foot. Then
bend the knee of the back leg,
point the toe downward like a bal-
let dancer does, and bring this
foot forward in front of the other
one, heel to toe. Repeat, walking
