SUNDAY, 1967 PAGE 16 SEC. 6 THE INDIANAPOLIS STAR fn irVr Beauty Contest Names Way Out' In California I Nw i I WM mis; iM BSmm Wtm recently named Queen of the 1967 Turtle Races. She is an all-American girl, a baby-sitter for the Joshua Tree Parent-Teachers' Association, helped in the March of Dimes drive, sews and does hair styling and is sound technician for the Hi-Desert Players' production, "A Man Called Peter." Now why should such an accomplished 17-year-old be called Queen of the Turtle Races? The turtles could race without her, certainly. And how about Miss Pickle, who in real life is pretty Jane Phillips? Couldn't she get along without a moniker like that? A spine-tingler is the Miss Perfect Posture contest staged by the spine-minded San Diego Chiropractic Society. The judges looked only at the backs of 10 contestants.

Miss Judy Allesee, Miss Perfect Posture of 1967, observed after her triumph that the judges "didn't even see our faces." The Federal Bureau of Investigation, which usually has no sense of humor, didn't have much, either, when it staged New Drug Induces Abortion New York (AP-nA drug, developed in Sweden, that induces abortion has been tested successfully among 50 pregnant women, an article in a national women's magazine reports. One dose of the drug causes a woman to menstruate within a few days. A fertilized egg, or even a fetus up to eight weeks old, is shed painlessly in the process, the article says. It quotes Dr. Ake Hanne-gan of the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm as saying that reactions among the 50 women varied, and that "the best results were with women who had been pregnant only a short time." THE RESEARCH is said still to be in an early stage, with more testing required to establish the safety and effectiveness of the drug, which has the code name F-6103.

One concern, the magazine says, is whether the unborn baby might be severely damaged if the drug failed to induce menstruation or abortion. The drug conteracts progesterone, a hormone which is involved in successful implantation and survival of a fertilized egg in the lining of the womb or uterus. THE 50 WOMEN given F-6103 did not have any toxic or harmful reactions, the article says, adding that all had received permission to hava legal abortions. Dr. Lars Engstrom, directing the experiments, suggests the drug might become a standard method of birth control, the magazine says.

It quotes him: "A woman could take the pill at the end of every 28-day cycle in which she had intercourse. Then her period will occur, whether she has a fertilized egg in her or not. In fact, she doesn't hava to think about that question at all." MISS PERFECT POSTURE, SHOWS TROPHY Runner-Up, And Pattie Jeffers (Center), 2d Runner-Up, Congratulate Winner all-told, is the "grandma" of worldwide beauty competition, he insists. "The first such event was held in Long Beach 15 years ago," he recalls. "It is the world's largest pageant of its kind.

Many of the competing foreign countries send girls from their finest families, including nieces and daughters of presidents, diplomats and other high government officials." Beauty contests are part of Americana, so it won't do to paint them all with the same brush. But, please, can't we keep them down to a college yell? cated beside the biggest open-pit borax mine In the world. This one makes the soap people happy. Like the other big-name beauty contests, the International Beauty Congress at Long Beach attracts girls from all 50 states and 40 foreign nations. The winner gets $10,000 in take-home pay (after taxes, that is) and countless other prizes.

John Dickson, manager of Long Beach Promotion, which stages the Beauty Congress, or Pageant, concedes some California contests don't make much sense. But the Long Beach beauty handicap, with $20,000 in prize money OF OCEANSIDE, CALIF. Seems Seaworthy safe boating, in fact it should be here to stay, but why rope in a beauty queen?

She is another blond beauty, Miss Jo Vraden-berg, and she need take no back seat to even the prettiest bunch of lilacs. San Diego, a hub of ocean sportsfishing the year-round, stages a Miss Yellowtail beauty contest annually.

This gala event has become so traditional that it attracts scores of contestants each year, even though the winner takes on a title that probably is not very well understood by anybody but sportfishermen.

Which is a way of saying that if beauty contests in California aren't sometimes the goofiest, they'll do until another state comes along with crazier ones. Mind you, this Is no indictment of the beauty contest as a proper outing for pretty girls. It's just that some of the contests, by their names, alone, sound a little silly and perhaps rub off some of the glamor of the really big ones, like the Miss America, Mrs. America, Miss Universe contests and the International Beauty Pageant at Long Beach, Calif. Beauty contests have become good business for the communities and organizations which stage them.

They attract tourists, local audiences and dollars. They are great advertising tie-ins for the automobile industry, the dairy industry, the American farmer. In fact, you name it and there's likely a beauty contest around somewhere. California seems to have cornered the market, however, for offbeat beauty contests. Like the pickle industry which names a Miss Pickle every year.

True, she never seems to have a sour puss, but why a Miss Pickle? It's good business for pickle sales, the beauty contest promoters contend. And by the way, there's plenty of money for the promoters who dream up and organize beauty contests. THE GALS who win these sometimes slightly nutty beauty battles often deserve a better fate.

The future bride is the Transplanting Hair Better Than Toupee New York (WNS) "I never met a man who was happy about eoing bald," said Dr, Robert A. Berger, associate at tending physician in dermatol ogy at Mount Sinai Hospital, here. "Of course, the best reaction to balding is to accept it as a minor, inconsequential prob lem and to adjust to It," he said. "But today, people seem to feel there is no reason to be bald that something can be done about it." One of the things which can be done is transplantation of plugs of hair from the back of the neck to the top of the head, reported the 35-year-old dermatologist. "SOME PATIENTS require as many as 500 grafts, but the average Is 200 to 300 grafts," Each transplantation session takes from 30 minutes to an hour and a half.

About 10 to 20 grafts are put in place. From 5 to 12 hairs grow out of each graft. The cost per ses sion ranges from $5 to $25. Dr. Berger said the grafts are carefully placed so all the hairs grow in one direction forward.

Then the patient Is able to comb back his hair and get more body. "The patients do not grow a full head of hair again," Dr. Berger emphasized. "They look as if they were beginning to grow bald. But very few of them are dissatisfied." He said there are about 10,000 hairs on a person's head.

About 90 per cent are growing and 10 per cent are resting prior to falling out. The normal person loses an average of 67 hairs a day. USUALLY, EVEN a bald person has hair on the back of his head between his ears. This is the hair which Is transplanted to the top of the head. It is not likely to fall out once the transplant takes effect.

"The psychological signifi cance of having growing hair on their heads is very evident," Dr. Berger said. "It has symbolic meaning. "While there is not as much hair as if a man put a toupee on, there are certain advan tages to the transplant procedure. Among them, it doesn't come off, It grows and you can brush it and swim Mold Hipline For Fall Clothes directed and they both worked equally well.

But 200 pounds at 25 years of age was frightening. And if it hadn't been for Ayds Reducing Plan Candy, she might still be that heavy. Her doctor had prescribed reducing pills, but they made her so nervous, she had to give them up after only four weeks. She also tried all sorts of diets.
