•Twelve Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Josephine Lowman Beauty Not Sole Requisite In Mrs. America Contest Many people think of the Mrs.] America Contest as a beauty con-' test. It is far from that. Practically all contestants were judged on their home-making ability at the local level, and all of them at the state level, before they even were selected to represent their state. In their interviews at the first of the week long contest held in May, they were asked about their participation in church and civic affairs. It is amazing what these women do for their communities. They are extremenly active in Parent-Teacher associations, in Boy and Girl Scouts, in various drives, in women's clubs, and civic organizations and in church work. 145 Children A large percentage of them teach Sunday School classes and some sing in the choir. Many made the charming clothes they wore. All of them have children, many three or four and one was the mother of seven. Just for fun I added up the children represented by their parents and the total came to 145, or an average of almost three to a family. I noticed, too, that the majority of the mothers are college graduates. They also mentioned recreation such as bridge- and swimming and square dancing. I don't know how they do it all and yet look so lovely and gay r calm and well-groomed! Different Backgrounds Their husbands are a fine look Jng group of young men representing many different phases of our working world—some are salesmen, engineers, one is a reporter, on a railroad conductor, another a tavern operator and the husband of the winner, Mrs. Lindwood Findley of Arlington, Va., is a lieutenant colonel in the air force. That gives you some idea of the diversity of backgrounds represented. When I looked at these couples, singly and collectively, it made me feel good all over. We read of so many distorted and sad, tragic happenings. We are well aware of the high divorce rate. It was refreshing to know that Mr. and Mrs. America are out there, dedicated to their homes and their communities, intelligent, hardworking, charming and attractive. Mom Recaptures Lost Youth With Daughter's Friends Dear Ann: My mother was 16 ever, for the victim of this cheap Mrs. America contestants are Ann Landers when I was born and my dad left us. She's only 32 now, and looks younger. Although I prefer to call 3cr "mother" she insists I call her 'Sis." She wears her hair like mine and tries to copy my style of clothes. When the kids eome over she plants herself in the middle of the gang and monopolizes the conversation. She's a very good dancer and latches on to the fellows who dance well and we girls never get a chance. The fellows don't seem to mind, but it upsets me, and my girl friends resent it, loo. Frankly, I don't like my mother to act this way. I mentioned it to her and she flew off the handle and called me "jealous" and "spiteful." She said I should be happy to have a mother who is peppy and full of life. Please tell me what to think. I am all mixed up.—TRUDY. Your mother should get back into her own generation and not try racket, was just plain stupid. I married a man whose ex-wife is a cunning shrew. We are finding the "cost of leaving" -a darned sight higher than it ought to be. Not only are we up against it financially (with no relief in sight for many years to come) but his ex has taught his children to hate him. The court ruled that he can see the- kids once a week, but what's the use after she gels through poisoning their minds against him? Why must the husband always bear the brunt of the divorce when often the wife is equally guilty? My husband's ex is living like a queen on what we send her every month, plus what her present husband earns. In the meantime, entitled to be supported like • a queen" nay advice is tell it to the judge. Many men complain that the little woman had a record that would've made Madame Pompadour look like Snow White, but they kept mum to "save her name." Later they regretted not giving her the works. I say, sing out loud and clear, boys, and forget the heroics./Don't be a silent martyr and a sap.

Dr. Thomas K. Barber and Dr. Earl W. Renfroe of the University of Illinois' dental college wrote in .he Journal of the American Dental Association that tongue-thrusting is detrimental to dental development. ' "The effects vary from person to person and at different ages," they said. "The habit is most injurious to the newly erupting incisors (front teeth) of the child between the ages of six and eight years." The educators said the period when the child's permanent teeth begin to appear is the important one for detecting the beginnings of so-called "crooked teeth." During this period, they said a simple job of prevention can be done before the condition progresses and becomes worse.
