Do you have auto legs?

Beauty advice from The Pittsburgh Press (Feb 20, 1938):

The greatest menace to beautiful feminine figures is auto legs. Such is the contention of LeRoy Prinz, Paramount dance director, who makes a living out of his ability to tell a good leg when he sees one. The leg impressario insists that American girls spend so much time riding and so little time walking that the legs don't get enough exercise to develop in shapely fashion, but become knobby, knock-kneed and skinny.

Well, he is right that it is better for you not to take the car for every five-minute trip to the shop. I just don't think that "auto legs" are the reason. "Auto coronary", maybe.
