Glamour Ethos By HAL DeWINDT Bum 4 . . De . . . Dura . , Dum - . i The story you are about to read Is true. The names have not been changed to protect the innocent. It was Monday, Sept. 27. It was cloudy in this section of the city. I was working the day watch out of the New York Age - Defender. My partner, Frank's typewriter. The boss is captain Adams. My name's Hal Friday. A plan to demolish the fashion shows in the metropolitan area has started as of two weeks ago. In spite of what I'd been able to do, they continued their operations. We HAD to stop them. Suddenly the phone rang. Think - ing fast I lifted the receiver; using all the wit and imagination . . .1 said "Hello." The . voice on the other end, (since it belonged to a person not possessing my quick, rapid fire talent) said, "Hi!" (some people have it, some do not). To continue my tale, calculated to keep you in suspense (OOPS, wrong channel): Using my super - keen sense of placement and familiarity with the human voice, I suddenly discovered that it was Skotye, the fashion detective who was speaking to me. "I have it!" he exclaimed. "Yoa have what, pray tell?", I shrewdly asked - "Tbe remedy for the disastrous plan to demolish the fashion shows in New York." Preparing for any immediate emergency, I quickly summoned patrolmen 'pencil' and 'paper. "The remedy will be . . . FASHION SHOW SERVICE!", said de - tective Skotye. "that's it", I said . , (not having the slightest idea of what fashion show service was, I quickly added) ... "or U it?" "The fashion show service will be a service (brilliant so far, I thought) that will stoo the many who are wrecking the art of fashion presentations. This organized body will supply models, props. lights, milliners, designers, entertainment and the experience that will guarantee success." The plan is now in operation Citizens of New York, you will be saved. Detective Skotye, who had been demoted because he held an umbrella over the head of Lucille Cromer Rolle, our undercov er society sleuth, has now been awarded a promotion. This case was taken from the files of the New York Age.. For further developments, keep reading Glamour Echoes . . .

The Format To Success For Negro Models TO ALL MODELS: Your future In modeling is hanging on a very thin thread. Being a Negro model the thread in question has been severed, retied, severed and retied again. It is up to you as a pro - lessional model and a intelligent individual to make this imagin ary thread a secure and profitable one. xou cannot rely on your agency to make you a full fledged model. You must not fool yourself Into believing that the popularity you have mustered will assist you in your dream of becoming a professional. The pictures that appear in magazines and newspapers will not create enough of a platform for you to hold the interest of the important (money or contact wise) person. The Negro model cannot disguise he professional talent that is re quired with a mask of beauty and nothing else. She has got to ac quire many talents to over - ride the Insurmountable pressure thai is and will be placed on her. Modelling is a profession business and should be regarded as such. As in any other busi ness you'll have to study hard and diligently to become a professional. Here is your format to success: ness you'll have to study hard and 1. Belief in yourself. 2. Mental at well as physical fitness. 3. Preparing yourself Educa tionally, by knowing the fundamentals of modeling. Mechanically, by having in your possession or having access to the tools of the trade. Garb - wise having in your wardrobe clothing to fit all occa sions, knowing now ana wnen w wear them. 4. Continually practicing what you have learned in the charm school. These four simple rules will bring you the success that you dream of acquiring. HUH? IS THAT SO?
