DANCING AND HEALTH New Ways Better Than Old By "IN STEP" "A natural reversion to the best," say many, when discussing the remarkable return to popularity of old style dances; but at least one expert contends that it is not a progressive move from the 1 health view at least. Modern dancing is a wonderful exer cise, he holds, provided that there is a reasonable amount of fresh air. Its great advantage over older dances is that it is based on natural movement, with a long free swing of the legs. Most of Hie old dances were ar ranged for effect, and the movements were a series of set steps and dainty pointing movements, which did not stretch or exercise the muscles to the best effect, even If they were more tir ing. The movements were not natu ral, and lacked freedom. The modern dance walk called for and induced a constant stretching of the muscles of the leg and bade, which gave as a natu ral sequence, increased strength and better Joint mobility. He particularly praised Htmning as the...

KEEPING ABREAST OF THE TIMES 'Varsity Students' Interest In Public Affairs Although there is no likelihood of the'Government's interfering with the Adelaide University senate, as Mr. Lang proposes to do to make the Syd-&lt;*> ney University Senate more represen tative of "modern democratic thought," the students here, as in other Australian universities, ensure that their academic achievements and their knowledge of world affairs are kept abreast. Not Qiat any oftnem hold any pronounced views on things in general, but they want to keep up to date. The claim of the president of the Sydney University Labor Club is that that University is becoming more like Oxford every day.

SUNSHINE CLUB What Are Its Ideals? By THE MANAGER OF 5 AD What is the Sunshine Club? I have been asked that question so frequently by business associates that I feel some explanation perhaps is necessary. Briefly, the Sunshine Club Is a move ment, idealistic perhaps, to spread sun shine and happiness, not only among its members, but by them throughout the community. The period of depression appears to be passing, and better times are ahead. The 6un of prosperity is rising again, and happier times are coming; not now,1 but certainly before very long. The stimulus at the back of the movement may be idealistic, but it is an ideal which has many fervid supporters—an enrolment of over 1,500 members in less than a fortnight indicates that The spirit ofQie club is one of true Australian mate- I3i«, p,erh*Ps *ne "Creed of the Sunbeams," which is to be issued this week to members, together with their badges, symbolic of the rising sun. will more truly explain that aspect of the dub.
