'Open door' policy proves
bad for many a waistline
14A The Bend Bulletin, Wednesday, May 9, 1962
By Gay Pauley
UPI Staff Writer
NEW YOllK (UPI i The open
door policy for the refrigerator
has been disastrous for many a
waistline. Including, it turns out,
the waistlines of some men of the
Submarine Service.
A report which reached this
desk today told about a new "bat
tle of the bulge" being waged
several hundred feet below tlie
surface of the ocean.
"No bullets are being ex
changed," said die communique
from General Dynamics, "but a
lot of calories are falling victims
as Polaris submarines wage war
on waistlines."
The problem: Tempting food,
snacks available at all times in
addition to live regular meals,
and tlie cut-down on exercise be
cause of close quarters of subma
rine living. Solution: To add such
exercisers as rowing machines
and vibrators.
"Nobody's being put on a diet,"
said a New York spokesman for
tlie firm which has made most
of tlie nuclear powered Polaris
subs. "After all, food is a major
morale factor on a long patrol."
But he added that on the pa
trots, some as long as three
months, "it's a rare submariner
who doesn't put on two or three
pounds; some add as many as
15."
"Most men put on weight un
less they make a particular ef
fort. . . There's no space to burn
up calories," said Cmdr. Patrick
J. Hannifin, prospective com
manding officer of tlie Lafayette,
tlie U.S. Navy's newest Polaris
sub scheduled for May 8 launch
ing at Groton, Conn.
Hannifin was executive officer
on the George Washington and,
according tc tlie General Dynam

ing to shed some of tlie pounds
added on patrol.
Tlie Lafayette will have special
exercise equipment for officers
and crew.
One company calls tlie innova
tion in hosiery tlie "greatest boon
to women's legs since nylon."
It is bragging about new stock
ings called runless and seamless
which several manufacturers
are in a competitive race to pro
duce. Tlie non-run secret lies in the
method of stocking construction.
And one manufacturer, an
nouncing its non-run product this
week, said if tlie product didn't
live up to its billing, a year's
supply of nylons (12 pairs) would
be guaranteed to any woman
with a "run" down pair.
Tlie nation's bill for toilet goods
is nudging the 2 billion per year
mark. The Toilet Goods Associa
tion (TGA) reports that retail
sales for 1961 reached $1,933 bil
lion, a gain of 8.3 per cent over
1960. Substantial gains were reg
istered in sales of colognes and
toilet waters. And TGA said
"business in eye makeup was
spectacularly good" in 1961.
