Local Men Heavier Now Than In J929 NEW YORK (Special) The gross tonnage of Mason County's male populal.ion has gone up. It is considerahly higbm; than it once vras. Back in 1929. when working hours were hmgcr, wl]en people would think nothing of going on foot to the corner grocery store and when a farmer walked behind his plow instead of riding on a tractor, it was easier to stay slim. Now. in this push-button age, even the littl( effort that was once used in driving a ear is be- ing eliminated. Power brakes, pow- er steering, electric windows and automatic shifting have cut that effort to the vanishing point. , As a result of little exercising and excessive eating, Mason Coun- ty's men are approximately five pounds hearvier, on the average, than men of similar height and age m 1929. TIlE LOCAL )IALE population as a whole is about 41,750 pounds, er 20.9 tons, heavier than it would have been at that time. The findings are based on na- tional averages arrived at in Stlld- ies conducted by the Society of Actuaries and by the Department of Agriculture. They show that the changes that haye taken place m'e different for different heights and ages. At the 5 foot 8 inch level, the increase among 25-year-old men is listed as four pounds, at age 35, as six pounds, at age 45. as five pounds and. for those who are 55 years old. three pounds. As to the women, in terms of 1.929 standards they are not over- weight Actually, they are found to be slimmer than they were at that time. When fashions dictated the slender look for women, they proceeded to diet and to lose weight. They now tip the scales at sev- eral pounds less than in 1929. If men were to return to their 1929 size, the medical experts would still not be satisfied. For a longer and healthier life, they say, the average man should be 20 poundg lighter. For Mason County's male popu- lation, this would mean knocking off no less than 84 tons. Impossible ? Not really. It would require a great deal of will pow- er, much less activity with the knife and fork and more exercise than at present.
