More than five tons of salt bacon furnished by the federal
government for distribution among the needy on the R.F.C. rolls arrived in
Grantsville on Wednesday.
The shipment consisted of sides and bellies, the choicer
portions of the pigs having been diverted before reaching this place.
Just why the workers of Calhoun County have to subsist on backs
and bellies, while more favored sections wallow in spare-ribs and sausage, is
not clear. Who ever heard of R.F.C. officials eating salt bellies?
It is surprising how many Americans take no regular exercise.
This may not sound too alarming, but think of this condition in relation to a
piece of machinery, or automobile, or anything like the body with moving parts.
If machinery is left idle, or an automobile is not driven, the
moving parts grow stiff or unworkable, and the same is true with the body. If
you work at a desk, as many of us do, and never do much more than drive an
automobile to the office or home, your body is being mistreated.
Your muscles, heart, lungs and other working parts of the body
require some use, some exercise if they are to remain workable and in good
condition. Exercise builds up muscles and enables the body to throw off waste
and to function properly.
One health expert estimates that those who take regular exercise
add as much as 10 years to their lives. They keep down body weight, keep muscles
and body posture in proper harmony and, through use, maintain properly
functioning organs. If you would feel better, look better and work better, and
in addition add years to your life--why not take exercise regularly? Do you?
