Beauty Is Nice Change of Pace By JOAN CROSBY NEA Entertainment Editor NEW YORK - (NEA) - The trouble.with most beauty contest winners is that they are so predictable it would be possible to write a standard contest winner's story and run it year after year, changing only the girl's name and the contest. Which is why Didi Anstett, recently chosen Miss U.S.A. is so refreshing. Didi is a tall, scrubbed, pink- cheeked brunette beauty wh» will be representing her country in the Miss Universe Pageant, to be seen on CBS-TV on July Ij. S.:e is the second oldest of a Kirkland,. Wash., family of nine. "We have a sign on our front lawn that says "Population: 11," she smiles. And she tells of a telegram she got from her older brother, the married one, after she won the contest. "Congratulations. Don't get too cocky," it said. It would probably be impossible for this girl to get cocky. She is too interested in the people and things around her to get wrapped up in herself. During our lunch, she was much more interested in my reactions to a trip behind the Iron Curtain thaa she was talking about herself. Dorothy Catherine Anstett was born June 28, 1947, in Rosalyn Heights, Long Island. When she was 12, her parents moved to Washington.. She was educated . at the Convent of t h e on the first full scholarship ever awarded by that school. She is currently majoring in English and minoririg in drama at the University of Washington, although her Miss U.S.A. activi- and Burrud has appeared on most of them "tiecause we. can't afford to hire anyone else." Now he is learning how the other, richer half lives. For the Sacred Heart in Forest Ridge first time, his company has sold Expanding Airways Stirs Competition By JOHN CUNIFF AP Business Analyst NEW YORK (AP) — In happy times the major airlines'share the skies like, busy,- peaceful butterflies, but right now • they are competing like hawks. This week an attorney. for American Airlines told a hearing in Washington that- in 'the Pacific area Pan American World Airways had a. "sorry record of poor service, poor promotion, and high-fares and profits." ' The ferred to a list of other airlines, next day Pan Am re- including American, that it said wished to be cut in on the big Pacific territory, and strongly indicated that the result would be to drive Pan Am out. The big fuss will last so long as the Civil Aeronautic Board continues hearings on proposals to restructure air routes .between the U.S. mainland and vast areas of the commercially expanding Pacific. At the moment, Northwest, Pan American and United : Air Lines have authority to fly these routes. But a CAB examiner has recommended that Eastern,. Trans World and Western' airlines also be permitted to carry passengers -there. This tremendous .-interest' 1 in- restructuring routes, not. only in the Pacific .but in much of : the world, comes from a complex of reasons: Security, expanding economies, population shifts, new aircraft, the need .for competition to keep prices low. The security argument, of course, is one that the nation I men feel that not only must air (routes be maintained to Southeast Asia but that they must be kept .strong throughout the Pacific. .. . But the Pacific's commercial prospects are much more interesting to the airlines. • japan is now the largest trader with the United States; The Korean economy is expanding. Indonesia, a potentially wealthy nation, seems eager to exploit its resources. All this means business for the airlines. A remote prospect, but still one that is very seriously considered, is China. If that nation opens her doors to air travel, as have the nations of Eastern Europe, a vast new area of almost unlimited potential could develop. -' As these possibilities grow, the American population shifts westward. More of the nation, therefore, is given a Pacific orientation, making possible the development of a growing tourist business, not just to Hawaii, but to lands many thousands of miles beyond. The jet airplane also : has made much of this possible. And in the future, the jet will play a big role of. another kind. Be cause of the enormous cost of jets, airlines must develop bigger, businesses, larger routes, than they now have. The.Boeing 747, which is due to be in operation before 1970, will; cost $20 million. The Concorde, a British-French supersonic jet due in 1971, was expected to sell for $18 million but likely will cost, more than ?20 million. isn't likely to .ignore.. Military ! In the 'mid-1970s, when the biggest plane of all, the U.S. supersonic airliner, is expected to be ready for commercial use, the cost of one plane will be up to $40 million. Small airlines won't be able to afford it. As a consequence, the scramble is on to enlarge routes. Failing to do that, smaller companies are expected to seek mergers with each other or with larger operators. And so the Pacific has become a battleground for. the airlines. After the hearings the CAB goes into studious hibernation, with no answer expected for months.
