"The New Health-O-Meter De Luxe

Artistic as well as mechanical perfection is attained in the new Health-O-Meter De Luxe automatic bathroom scale. Its gentle elliptical lines harmonize with the motifs of the modern bathroom, and the variety of colors in which it can be furnished enables it to blend with any color scheme.

Placed in your bathroom, it will instantly become an integral and artistic part of it, just as weighing daily has become an inseparable part of the morning toilette of the thinking thousands.

One feels as secure standing on the new Health-O-Meter as on the floor itself, for it is built closer to the floor than any other. Exclusive mechanical features protect its unvarying accuracy, make it practically abuse-proof.

The helpful psychology... of weighing daily

If your health-O-Meter show you are gaining, you eat less - the memory of what it told subconsciously dulls your appetite.

For those who wish to take off or put on weight or reduce in spots, the Scientific Weight Control Course which accompanies each Health-O-Meter will give you the methods approved by the Weight Control Conference in the New York Academy of Medicine. Endorsed by thousands who have used it with the health-O-Meter to regain and retain their normal weight and figure.

Health-O-Meters are procurable at any department, hardware, physicians' supply or drug store.
