SUNDAY TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD., SUNDAY, FEBRUARY IS, 1915 NINETEEN I Gracie Fields Says Woman Over 40 Can Be Glamorous Disputes An Assertion By Clare Boothe Luce That There Is No Glamor After That Age' : , By BOB THOMAS . Hollywood, Feb. 17—So Clare Boothe Luce won't fight with Helen Gahagnn Douglas, eh? Maybe shei can battle with Oracle Fields. ! The Issue: The contention by the! representative from Connecticut] that she is no glamor girl since | women over 40 cannot be glamorous. I Stuff and nonsense, said Oracle while relaxing on the "Paris Underground" set. "Mrs. Luce Is fishing for a compliment and I am Just the gal to give it to her," she added. "Mrs. Luce has more glamor than most glamonis women because shp has Intelligence to go with It." » » • The English comedienne recently admitted to her 47th birthday in a GRACIE FIELDS Knows Her Glamor town where a woman's age Is as sec-!r Ar v 111T x] f> l^ 1 „ retly guarded as,, the plans for the!*- jUm P lellrl e !

There are many people who would contend. that she has glamor. i "Oh, I guess I will pass in thaj-p.. • dark," she commented modestly j-LMTtJClor "except when the camera catcheii sirlls bv »11 of my chins." I could count only one. The number of glamorus women over 40 is large, remarked Gracie. Her nominees—Katharine Cornell, Ilka Chase, Mrs. Harrison Williams, Lynn Fontainne, Gertrude Lawrence, the Duchess of Windsor, Elizabeth Bergner. "My own mother is 67 and she Is one of the most glamorous women I know," she added. "Queen Elizabeth is glamorous, though not in the Hollywood sense of the word. When she visited this country, she slimmed down six or seven pounds to meet American standards." Oracle thinks it is silly to be squeamish about one's age. -'clhnan Gets Re-Reading From Reporter's Book Out on the green of a golf course, within a stone's throw of Beverly Hills, they were reenacting one of the great human Interest dramas of World War II. : : Ernie Pyle had reported the touch- Ing story and it had gripped millions of readers.
