Losing Weight in Heels at Rose Dor Farm, an Exercise and Weight Loss Getaway in New York in 1938

Now women whom the pace of modern life requires to look their best are turning increasingly to “milk farms” where strict diet and regular scientific exercise takes pounds off oversize figures.

Typical of these in Rose Dor Farm up the Hudson River from New York where the setup is that of a swank country club and where regulation ten-day course includes three days of nothing but fruit and vegetable juices, a week of cultured milk and vegetables.

Run by a young man called Bob Taplinger and his sisters, Rosalie and Doris, for whom the farm is named, Rose Dor Farms attracts not only stylish stouts but many a young girl who wants work off a few pounds to get that modelling job.
