Do Stage Beauties Exercise? – Strength Magazine – October, 1925

If beauty goes back to physical perfection, and I surely · think it does, and if physical perfection goes back to action, and I ~now it does, it is certainly a shame that in this country a real passion for athletic success and athletic supremacy seems to be part of every boy’s nature and no part of the nature of any girL Perhaps women are realists and men are idealists. Perhaps women have their feet on solid ground, and men have their heads in the clouds, when it comes to the question of health and, therefore, to the question of beauty. Or, perhaps women by culture, clothes and cosmetic manufacturers have been taught to depend too much on sources outside themselves for health and beauty.
