Hips, Hips, Away! (Jan, 1937)
“After you’ve given each spot the once over, place a heavy turkish towel over the spot and slap the flesh good and hard. Don’t be afraid to put a little determination into those slaps, either. About six good ones are enough”
Very few exercise instructions tell you to repeatedly slap your ass these days.
Hips, Hips, Away!

FASHION, like history, often repeats itself. Lately that mysterious group has been at it again. This time trying to sell American women the idea of bustles, peplums, flares, circular and barrel skirts.
Fashion hasn’t got a chance with such goings-on. They tried once before, and not long ago, to stimulate interest in the hour-glass figure with spacious bosoms and billowy hips, but it was not a success. If your hips are already large, such fandangles as mentioned above will only attract attention to them and make them appear larger. And who wants that?
DO IT. (Mar, 1975)
One more word and Nike would have needed a different slogan.
Now you can do anything. Without worrying about it. Touch football. Or coloring your hair.
Now there’s Clairol Balsam Color. The shampoo-in haircolor that leaves no excuse for not coloring your hair.
In fact, it leaves your hair shiny and more manageable than if you hadn’t colored it.
WHAT CAN BE DONE TO PREVENT BALDNESS? (Apr, 1917)
“Every theory, you see, is as sound as a dollar. Any one of them is sufficient to sell a hair tonic or commend a new treatment.”
All those damn quacks, claiming they have a cure!
“A modern method which is of undoubted potency in the treatment of premature loss of hair is the ultra-violet ray. This must not be confused with the comparatively useless violet ray lamp.”
WHAT CAN BE DONE TO PREVENT BALDNESS?

ALOPECIA, as physicians call it —they always tack a fancy title an a disease when they know little or nothing about it— ‘ comes in many forms. There is alopecia adnata, which signifies that some people are born bald. Then we have alopecia senilis, implying that a favored few live long enough to achieve it. But the most painful, the most cowardly type of baldness is alopecia prematura, which is thrust upon us by our friend the barber in his tonsorial operations.
