Although sixty years old, he is stronger and more supple than most younger men, and he uses his own "Daily Dozen" exercises regularly in order to remain so. Since the war, the "Daily Dozen" has been making busy men and women fit and keeping them so-and the exercises are now proving more efficient than ever-due to a great im provement in the system. This is it: With Mr. Camp's special permission, all the twelve exercises have been set to music-on phonograph records that can be played on any disc machine. In addition, a chart is furnished for each exercise-showing by actual photographs the exact movements to make for every one of the "commands"-which are given by a voice speaking on the record. So now you can make your phonograph keep you fit. With these records and charts a man or woman can keep himself or herself fit with only a few minutes' exercise a day-and it is so much fun that some of the "Daily Dozen" fans go through the whole twelve exercises to the spirited music twice every morning-just as a matter of sheer enjoyment. Mr. Camp says that the place where we must look after ourselves is in the body or the trunk muscles. This is so because we are all in reality "caged animals." When a man stops hunting and fish ing for his food and earns it sitting at a desk he becomes a captive animal-just as much as a lion or a tiger in the Zoo-and his trunk muscles deteriorate because they cease to be used. Then comes constipation and other troubles which savage men never have. The caged selves remedy animals. fit-and is to imitate the "exercises" of They know how to keep them they do it, too. How? Simply by constantly stretching and turning and twisting the trunk or body muscles! When Mr. Camp discovered that men and women can imitate the caged animal with enor mous profit to their health, he devised the "Daily Dozen"-to provide this indispensable exercise-the only exercise people really need to keep in proper condition. Many people have written to the Health Builders telling them of the benefits they have received. Here is part of one letter: "We wish to express our satisfaction and delight with our set of records and exercises. Our entire family of eight, including the maid, are taking them. The children are fascinated with them and bring the neighbors' children to do them. -MRas. CHARLES C. HICKISCH, 828 Vine St., La Crosse, Wis." The Health Builders' improved system now includes the entire "Daily Dozen" exercises, set to specially selected music, on large Io inch double-disc phonograph records; twelve handsome charts, printed in two colors, with over sixty actual photographs illustrating each movement of each exercise; and a little book by Walter Camp explaining the new principles of his famous system. Any man or woman who exercises with this system regularly, even if it is only six or seven minutes a day, will feel better and have more endurance and "pep" than they have had since they were in their 'teens-and they will find those few minutes the best fun of their day.
