ECHOES MY DEFINITION OF A "TRUE" MODEL. In evaluating a model nowadays, 'heri are many different views aken) by each person either interested in or conneced with the nodelling profession. In the course if my business duties I have been issociated with many a lovely nodel, durirfg which time I have et a definite pattern or formula 'or the girl I think 'most likely o succeed'. The girls does not have to look like Dorothy Dandridge nor must une have the financial backing of Barbara Hutton. The young lady most likely to make a success of her modelling career is the composite girl. The little lady who combines glamour,' intelligence, preparedness, sincerity and cleanliness. Let's Cake each of Ihese categories one by one. GLAMOUR, as we all concede, is one item that a model cannot do without. The definition of glamour, by a pal of mine, Mr. Webster is a charm on the eyes, causing them to sec things differently from what (hey are in reality; fascination; witch - pry." Second cateogory INTELLIGENCE, ever model needs npt only the physical attributes but also, she cannot do with out a certain intellectual capacity; the power to comprehend. Without this power, the individual is lost from the begnrjing and has little hope of succeding in the modelling pro - fesson of any other profession. PREPAREDNESS, state of being ready for all occasions. The model should have all the implements m - eded in the trade if she expects to be Hi led a professional. SINCERITY; a person' in the field of glamour should be honest, upright and not falsely assumed. If the model is dishonest to others she tends to be untrue to herself about the state of her career and the heights she has reached. (OH, BROTHER 1). CLEANLINESS; a moral and physical purity and neatness that makes the most ordinary girl look beautiful. If these five objectives are attained by a young lady, she will tot become a true model but a very clean, upstanding, self respecting and appealing person. The purpose of this column is to remind the girls who might have forgotten one or two of these objectives. There is never a "poinjt of so return" in anyone's life. My advice to those who have not attained the five objectives mentioned, ii to GET WISE and WAKE UPI ECHO CHAMBER. Gub Adapha planning a fashion show and dance to be given in January.
