Ask your wife if this isn't so...
A DRY SKIN MAKES YOU LOOK OLDER THAN YOU ARE No man in his sane moments really wants to look older than his age. In this competitive world of ours youth gets the breaks. Old age is a handicap at every turn.

PHANTOM RAIDERS of the AIR
CONCEALED by nothing but their coloring, two camouflaged planes on the ground eluded the vigilant eyes of the crews of six observation planes sent up to search for them during a test at the army air corps base in Hawaii. The observation ships spent one and one-half hours in hunting and not one spotted the camouflaged aircraft.

The HOUSE that RUNS ITSELF
WITH a mechanical "heart" that runs everything necessary for comfortable living, the "packaged home" no longer is a dream. Right now, a limited number can be delivered to owners in a giant truck, unwrapped from their Cellophane covers, set up and anchored to foundations in about two weeks—real homes, solidly built and fireproofed.

DR. HUGO ECKENER'S latest venture with rigid airships promises to unfold endless possibilities of traveling safely and swiftly through the air in modern luxury.

The mild cigarette the athletes smoke is the mild cigarette for YOU!
"THEY DON'T GET YOUR WIND" ATHLETES SAY A cigarette so mild you can smoke all you want— that's what athletes say about Camels. And when a champion talks about "condition"—"wind"—healthy nerves — real tobacco mildness—he knows what he's talking about. Listen to Gene Sarazen. "Traveling and playing as much as I do—I have to keep in condition. I smoke Camels steadily. They're so mild they never get my 'wind' or nerves."

The QUEEN of the SEVEN SEAS
THE 79,280-ton "Normandie," a ship that dares comparison, is about ready for the supreme test of a transatlantic crossing. Described as the largest moving unit ever built by man, the vessel sets a standard difficult to equal. Her plan and decoration reach a high-water mark in maritime history. No such ultra-modern interiors have ever been seen on an ocean vessel. The outside strikes a complete harmony with the inside. Her low rakish hull rides gracefully on the water, while her clipper bow and streamline funnels give her all the earmarks of the greyhound.

Heroes of the Switchboard and Phone Lines
FIRES, floods, earthquakes, tornadoes— these are some of the hazards that bring drama into the work of telephone employes. Keeping communication lines open during disasters is a vital matter. As long as nature behaves herself, as long as things go along normally, the work of the lineman, the operator, and the man on the test board is routine, but when trouble begins heroes are made.

INSIDE STORY of the RODEOS
by ANDREW JAUREGUI CHAMPION TEAM ROPER FOR thirteen years I have been doing "setting-up" exercises —attempting, more or less successfully, to remain in leather on a plunging broncho or Brahma steer or to rope and tie elusive, wriggling bundles of calf meat. I am a rodeo performer and, with other cowboys, move from rodeo to rodeo each season, risking sound bones and excellent health for the roar of the crowds and the reward of gold. Everywhere we hear these three questions: Isn't it dangerous to ride wild horses ? How do you stay in the saddle ? What are the tricks of rodeo riding?

Less expensive than some other equipment on the market, a new ice-cream bar maker has several desirable features. One is a spreader that holds the bars, with the flat, wooden sticks inserted, in position for dipping in chocolate or similar coating mixture. After dipping, the bars are hung on a rack to dry, the spreader and dipping apparatus being arranged for this purpose.

Fingerprinting All Safeguards Each Citizen
Fingerprints of citizens are being made by state and federal agencies at the rate of tens of thousands per month, as a result of the Department of Justice plea that every law-abiding person in the United States volunteer for the work. A complete file would contain 125,000,000 sets of fingerprints. J. Edgar Hoover, director of the federal bureau of investigation, points out that fingerprint records help authorities in making speedy identification of persons rendered unconscious in accidents, persons suffering from loss of memory and persons who die with no identifying papers or marks in their clothing.
