Others have worries over financial insecurity, or dread of being physically unattractive or fear of the "chane'c of life." Altogether, their stories make up a great parade of woe. And It's .\ parade that the woman who is young no*- need never join—if she will plan ahead.

It's filled with ads tellinfc women how to stay young - looking, how to choose clothes that aid in regaininc a youthful appearance, how to retain a youthful energy and clow, A woman who looks and dresses youthfully in middle age is bound to remain attractive to men, these ads imply. Thus, she'? in no dan- fzer of losing her husband. Is this true? Divorce courU give evidence to the contrary. Throuch them passes the daily parade of : slim and youthful-looking middle- ': aged women whose husbands are \ shedding them for one reason or another. It's beyond dispute that to he slim In middle age Is healthy and that, to be attractive IK a great Bid to one's morale. But the solution to all problems does not lie in physical appearance.
