Monday Evening, December 16, 1957. Secret of Youth? Why, It's Ballet, of Course NEW YORK (UP)-As I grow older and the bones get creakier, I regret that my mother never forced me to take ballet along with those dreary piano lessons. Chances are my dancing career •would have reached its pinnacle with the usual recital for proud parents. But I bet'I'd look and feel a darned sight younger today. This was what kept, occurring to me as I talked with Miss Alicia Markova, the prima ballerina in town for se v e r a 1 appearances .with the Metropolitan Opera Co. Miss Markova is in her 36th year, of professional dancing and said • she has no plans for retirement. ' "Secret of youth? Ballet of I course," said the 'lark - haired! beauty. Begun At Ten The dancer, often called the "Pavlova of this generation," began her career in London wher. she was 10. "Then," she saici, "we studied and worked harder. I can remember practicing 'from nine till lunch, most of the afternoon and often again into th-3 late evening. Now, she added, about all Ma" kova needs is "one hour's workout a day . . . you <now, to keep the machinery running." Height (five feet) and weight (100 pounds) haven't changed, she said, since sb; was 20. This, despite a confessed passion for double frosted chocolates. "I also believe in getting all the sleep I can crowd in," she said. "And massage. I don't need it for reducing ... but to remove some of the fatigue after a performance." Is Never Lonely Markova explained why she never has married, but also why she never is lonoly. "I'm not in one place long enough fo" romance to have a chance," she sail "You meet someone interesting . .. next day you have to move on to another engagement. And I do suppose my life has been pretty well dedicated to ballet. "But I'm never lonely. I can't understand people who say they are bored. With me, it is always a question of finding time to do the things I want. I wish there were 48 hours in the day."
