HARVARD CLUB MEMBERS ACQUIRE TROPICAL TAN
The newest experiment in winter resorts has opened at the Harvard Club of Boston in the form of a quick-time tan applicator. Here in a little room with half a dozen cots the club members, clothed only in goggles, repose beneath the strong ultra-violet rays of a mechanical sun. In the corners of the room, to give a tropical effect, potted palms are distributed.
The afternoon usually starts with a cool shower. Later one goes into the little room, stretches out on a cot, and is soon bathed in sunshine. Beginners are usually allowed two or three minutes, while the veterans enjoy it for 15 or 20 minutes.
The innovation has been running about a month. In that time 300 men have had 1,400 exposures.
