TO YOUR FIGURE

■ F you are a normal, healthy underweight person and are 
i ashamed of your skinny, scrawny figure, NUMAL can help you 
odd pounds ond pounds of firm, ottractive flesh to your figure. 

For NUMAL, a doctor-approved formula, contains essential 
minerols, vitamins and nutrteoii that may aid your appetite. Then 
you eaf more and en[oy what you eat. But that isn't all. NUMAL 
contains a food element which Is olso a great help in putting on 
weight. So don't let them snicter at your skinny, scrawny figure. 
A skinnv, scarecrow figure is neither fashionobie nor glamorous. 
Remember, the girls with the glomorous curves gel the dates. So 
start NUMAL todoy. You'll love the taste . . . you'll lovs the 
results. SEND NO MONEY. Just your name and address. When 
postman delivers NUMAL in plain wrapper, pay him only $2 plus 
portage and C.O.D. fees. Note: You save all postal charges if 
you send {2 with order. 




SKINNY MEN ARE NOT 
ATTRACTIVE EITHER 

Make no mistdke about it — 
d iklnny, scrawny body is no 
asset in social, business or 
sports life. So if you ore a 
normal, healthy underweight 
person, give NUMAL a 
chance to l\uild you up, put 
firm flesh on your frome. It's 
guaranteed — it must help you 
or your money back. You'll 
like NUMAL. It tastes good, 
does good. Order yours today.

/^FFICER Mike Ryan came 
^^ on duty at 8 P.M. A few 
minutes later, Barry Weems, 
junior partner of Baylor and 
Weems, jewelers, stopped to 
chat with Ryan. 

Weems handed Officer Ryan 
a 25-cent cigar and asked him 
the time. 

Mike looked at his watch. 
"It's 8:15." 

Barry grinned. "I got to 
mosey, Mike. Gotta heavy date 
at the Clennont. When she 
says 8:20, she means 8:201" 

Later that night Ryan found 
the door of Baylor and Weems's 
store unlocked. Strange . . . 
Ryan stepped ^ inside, peered 
around in the gloom, snapped 
his flashlight at the safe behind 
the counter. The safe door 
stood wide open, yawning, 
empty I 

Mike decided to do a litde 
investigating before reporting 
the burglary. He stepped into 
the back room, the clock and 
watch repair shop, and flipped 
on the %hts. 

At one side of the room lay 
old Mark Baylor, a tall grand- 
father clock smashed across his 
back. Ryan hastily examined 
him. Baylor was dead, shot 
through the chest. 



Officer Ryan hurried out to 
the nearest call box and re- 
ported the crime. Soon^ sirens 
screamed through the night. 

Detective Short stepped out 
of the squad car, saw Ryan and 
sneered: "You, again! I might 
as well try finding clues after 
an elephant's trampled the 
ground." 

Ryan held hb temper. His 
feud wii;h Detective Short was 
of long standing. They didn't 
agree on anything. Now it was 
Ryan's bad luck that Short, his 
superior, should draw a case 
on his beat. 

"Did you touch the body?" 
Short asked curtly. 

"I made sure he was dead — 
that's all." Ryan replied. 

"Come on, let's "hear the 
8loryi"'Short barked. 

"I came on duty, as usual, 
at 8 o'clock," 'Ryan began. 
"Everything was quiet.'At 8:15 
I was accosted -^byj ^Barry 
Weems,,..;" 

*rAII right;" -Short rsnarled. 
"I'm not ^interested .In ^thefhis* 
tqry 'o'f ;your misspent ;li{e. 
Start "^from 'the :ininute,'youmo- 
ticed :atiythlng •wtotlg -Wl&^e 
jewelry jtore'." 



Officer Ryan's eyes snapped, 
but he told what he had oh- 
served, ending: ,"And I no- 
ticed the smashed grandfather 
clock was stopped at — " 

"—stopped at 8:15,"" broke 
in Short. "Think I'm blind?" 
he thundered. "The murder 
was committed at 8:15. Any 
fool could figure that. It's an 
outside robbery job." 

"You're mistaken," Ryan 
said politely. This wasn't an 
outside job. After looking at 
that clock, I know who Idlled 
Baylor." 

"Did you see the job^done?" 

"No — but by deduction I^ 
concluded ■'" 

"Oh, brotherl" Short sneer., 
ed. "You deducted. And con. 
eluded. -A dumb Irish flatfoot.' 
Just iiput -ihe ;pretty clues ^to-* 
gether and solved the 'case'?> 
Why an 'blazes -are ;you ^pound-

ed in his written report accctm- 
panied by a terse note: 

^'Inspector Blake, Homidde: 

I know who killed Mark 



Baylor. 

Officer M. Ryan." 

Ryan was awakened by hea%7 
pounding on his bedroom door. 
Sleepily, he yelled, *'Don't 
cave it in— ^t's unlockedl" 

Detecdve Short walked in. 
"Get dressed, Ryan," he com- 
manded. "The chief wants to 
see you about a litUe matter of 

murder.'" 

Short's roving eyes stopped 
when they saw Ryan's revolver 
hung with his police uniform 
in the open closet. He walked 
over, lifted the gun from its 
holster, broke it open. He 
smelled the end of the barrel. 
It had been fired. "You're un- 
der arrest for killing Baylor," 
Short said coldly. 

Ryan's temperature mount- 
ed, but he knew it wbuld do 
no good to argue. He climbed 
out of bed, began putting on 
his umform. 

Short stopped him. "Put on 
your own clothes, Ryan. You 
won't be wearing blues after 
todayl" 

At '^headquarters. Short push- 
ed ^ppen the -chief's door, mo- 
tioned Ryan inside. "Here's 
your1kilIer,'Chief."

The inspector looked inquir- 
ingly at Ryan. 

Mike explained: "I practice 
every afternoon at the target 
range. I go on duty r^ht after* 
ward. Sure, the gun's been 

fired." 

"What's the meaning of this 
note?" Inspector Blake asked, 
tapping a paper on his desk. 

"Have you arrested Barry 
Weems?" Ryan asked. 

"No— why should we?" 

"He killed Mark Baylor," 
Ryan said. 

Inspector Blake turned to 
Short. "Get Weems." 

Short shrugged, but left to 
carry out the order. 

The inspector turned back 
to Ryan. "Where's your uni- 
form?" 

"Short made me wear civ- 
vies. Very persuasive — a gun 
in his hand. He says I won't 
be wearing blues any more." 

The chief looked thought- 
ful. "Perhaps he's right." 

Barry Weems was ushered 
into the office, protesting. 
"This is an outrage!" he shout- 
ed. "I'll suel I've an alibi!" 
Then he saw Officer Ryan. "I 
was talking to you at the time 
Mark was killed — tell them 
• • • 

"How did you know when 
Baylor was killed?" Inspector 
Blake asked quiedy. 

*'It aays -in the papers the 
-hrdkenjgrandfather clock stop-

a jeweler, a man wraitng''a 
wristwatch, asking the rime? 
When I found Baylor dead, I 
knew you'd had a reason for 
the question. You fixed it for 
me, a cop, to be your alibi 
witness." 

Weems looked shaken."! 
couldn't be in two places at 
once," he protested. 

"You weren't," said Ryan. 
"You kiUed Mark Baylor be- 
fore you talked to me. You 
smashed the grandfadier'i 
clock, set the hands ahead to 
read 8:15, to establish a false 
time for the murder. Then you 
robbed the safe of its cash and 
jewelry and walked out." 

"You can't prove the dock 
was set ahead!" Weems shout. 

ed. 

"Wrong again. That's where 
you made your first mistake. 
When you smashed the grand, 
father clock, a chip of broken 
glass lodged under the hour 
hand. It scratched a line^ the 
clock's face from the 7 to a 
little beyond the 8." 

Barry Weems caved in, sob- 
bing mto his hands. Inspector 
Blake called a police secretary. 
"Take this man's confession." 
He turned to Ryan. "Why 
didn't you give tliis evidence 
to Short?'* 

"I tried to. He wouldn't 
listen." 

Short looked tmcomf ortable. 

"Well, Short isn't always 
wrong,'* said the chief. "You 
won't be wearing blues after 
all, Ryan. I'll need a detective 
and die job's yours. Officer 
Short can wear the blues fpc 
.awhile. Detective Ryanl"

,The following /acti are bcoushy to the ittenlion of the 
public bemuse of a widespread belief thil nothing Uo be 
done about hpir Ion. This belief has no basis in medical 
_fart. Worse, it has condemned many men and women to 
needless bildncss by their neglect to iteat certain accepted 
causes of ha it loss. 

■Theie are six- principal types of hair loss, or aloptcU, as it ii known in medical 
terms: 

■.Alopecia from disea5es of the scalp 

2. Alopecia from other diseases or from an improper functioning of the body 

3. Alopecia of the a^ed (senile baldness) 

, 4. Alopecia ateala (loss df hair in patches) 

5. Alopecia 'of the young (premaiure baldness) 

6. Alopecia at birth (congenital baldness) 

Senile, premature and, congenital alopecia cannot be helped by anything now 
known to modern science Alopecia from improper functioning of the body 
cequi/es the advice and tiealment of your family physician. 
BUT MANY MEDICAL AUTHORITIES NOW BELIEVE A SPECIFIC 
SCALP DISEASE IS THE MOST COMMON CAUSE OF HAIR LOSS. 
This disease is called Seborchca and can be broadly 
classified inio two clinical forms with the follow- 
ing symptoms; 
I. DRY SEBORRHEA! The hair ii dry. lilc 
lea, and wjthDUIglosi. A diy flaky d^ndrul^ 
it uiunlly pir&ent wlih aLCDm^anyins itchi'

3. OILY SEBOKRHEA: The hair and tcalp >n 
DJly and gre^iy. Thf hair K alJBhtly siicky

Bdhel. Dandcufl lakti iht tatai oF hfad

severe with bnldne&s as ibc end iviuir. 

Mifny doctors agree that Id NEGI^CT 
these symptoms of DRY and OILY 
SEBORRHEA i! loINVlTE BALDNESS. 
SAorrhca is believed to be caused by three 
germ orgatiisms — staphyloctxcus albus. 
pityrosporum ovale, and acnes bacillus. 
These germs attack the sebaceous gland 
causing an abnormal working of this fat
