PAGE EIGHTEEN THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA SUNDAY, OCTOBER 30, 195T Josephine Lowman Beauty Can Be Handicap If Woman Relies On it Alone KBlRSr.r-rJaf-r--r A'TN^Aa^KrwfaKJa^fcftr^qyytfvvnaYft'r j .*- ij -' ^ "•"•---• .......— .- ...... -. ^ A beautiful woman must ais& develop verve, charm and personality. If you bewail the fact that you are not beautiful, listen to this letter and take heart! "Dear Mrs. Lowman: I hope this letter does not imply self-conceit for I feel that I must • be honest about my problem. From childhood people have told -be how beautiful they think I am and have never considered other .qualities which I believe are more important. 1 Is it possible for physical beauty to be a curse instead of a blessing? . ' "Boys seem to be afraid of me, even though I am rather shy, and as a result I am one of the most unpopular girls in my social set. I am rarely invited on dates with boys. Is there anything I can do to achieve a normal social relationship?" Don't Rely On It Beauty CAN be a handicap if the' woman relies on it alone, forgetting to develop verve, charm and personality. Often she becomes smug or lazy mentally because of the attention which comes her way without any effort on her part. For these reasons she is boring and once her youthful beauty is damaged by age her pop ularity wanes.' This is a bitter pill since she has nothing to take its place. " We so-of ten see. the rather plain girl of our high school or college days blossom forth into a stunning fascinating-woman in her mature years. She has learned about hair styling and make-up, and fashions She has developed many interests She likes people / and is aware of them and their lives and problems. She is well informed and well read and has a sense of humor. Then we remember the beautiful girl of our school years. Too often she has become dull and boring even before middle age. Her interests are no broader than- they •were in college days. Only her hips have widened. She is either depressed or has a chip on her shoulder because she misses the flattery and attention to which she became accustomed because of her youthful beauty. Shyness is Trouble . So, you see, beauty can be a handicap. Fortunately the' young woman who wrote 'the letter I quoted at the beginning of this column is aware of the dangers of too much beauty. I think I know what her problem is. She.says she 'is shy. Shyness is often mistaken for conceit, and folks are much more apt to suspect a beautiful girl of being conceited than a homely one. This young woman should try to forget that people always are telling her she is pretty. She should forget her appearance as much as possible and concentrate on being friends. She should speak to others in a warm, enthusiastic manner and talk with them whenever possible. She has no doubt crawled into a shell because of the constant comments about her ^beauty and Js even more unhappy because she does not seem to be popular. She herself will have to break loose from this vicious circle b deliberately making it impossibl for anyone to think of her as con ceited. Tomorrow: "Enjoy Fall an Benefit by Taking Daily Walk."

Hers as an unfortunate, destructive attitude, but I suppose "it's one of the hazards of the title." For most girls, the -Miss America cockade is a one-way ticket to nowhere. Bess Meyerson is one of a tiny fistful of former winners who have remained in the public eye. Bess has been in the-TV business for seven years now,, four- and-a-half of them on OBS-TV's "The Big Payoff," «a daytime entry. Talent Not Too Good "One reason why you don't hear about many Miss Americas is that although some of the talent is very good, on -the whole the talent is not of too high a quality," says Bess. ~"If a girl has any real specific talent—if she can sing, dance or •act^-the chances are she's caught up in her career by the time she's 18, 19 or-20. She has'no time for something like a Miss America contest.' "Another reason is many of the winners are from small towns and are a little afraid" of the big city. You "can't really blame the stay-at-homes though — in their own towns, Miss Americas are heroins all bheir lives. But-in New York, a Miss America is just another girl on the treadmill." Bess, a native New Yorker, tired to disentangle herself "from the Miss^ America title a year .-after she won it.' Came to'Senses "It ; was,a turning point in my life," says^ Bess. "It happened at a hotel here when a woman said— 'That's-Miss America? She's not so pretty.' Well, that hurt terrdiblyi at first. But then I came to my senses and decided I wasn't supposed to fee the prettiest girl in the world and" it'was foolish, to go •parading around as a'Miss America/-' -•''-. 'Actually though, you can't ever really divorce yourself from the title. It's like being Jackie Robinson -who'll always be known as a former second baseman no matter how far he goes as a business ex r eoutive. It's like being a former wrestling champ or flagpole sitter." .Bess, 'has a daughter, Barbara, wiho'H' be 10 in December. - "I didn't thinfc I'd ever be able to say anything but &ood -about Miss America," sighs Bess'."but I think it must be a terrible thing having a mother who once was'one. . "I hope that by the'time she is 19 or 20, she'll have progressed so far on whatever her career will be, that she'ill have no time for such" a thing' as the pageant. If there's one thing I'm sure of, it', thafl don't ever want my daughter to become a Miss America."

Read the Classified Ads Ann Landers Girl Complains Boyfriend Loses Her in Party Shuffle Dear Ann: I'm having, a problem with my boy friend: It may not seem' • serious' to you, .but it's enough' to keej) me constantly; on the verge of ( tears. Please tell me if you think I ought to' drop, the guy or work out> a solution and save the romance. Whenever we. go anyplace together I always 'get lost in the shuffle. At a party, I wind up alone unless I make an effort to attach myself to someone. At a dance he's always off with a samba expert or a mambo queen. If it's a barbecue, I can never find him until -it's time to go home. ..' „ I've told him how I feel but he claims I'm overly' sensitive. He says if' he didn't care for me he •wouldn't be around' at all. I'm not a person who must be fussed over'constantly, but I don't think he shows proper consideration •when he treats me this way. Do you agree? LONELY. LOU I agree. A girl- has a right to expect more than just transportation from her boy friend. If this ' is his sole' contribution to your entertainment, tell him not to bother. Some men must dance every number with the best-hoofer on the floor. They aren't happy unless they're off table-hoping'.and chinning with every one in the place. These birds ought to go alone, or take a girl who has the true pioneer ! spirit and ' doesn't mind fending for herself. As they say in the psychology-" books ^ "your personalities do not mesh". Dear Ann: I fell head over heels with a .fellow the first time he held me in his arms. He's a dancing instructor at a well-known school. I heard, about him from my girl friends-and signed up for lessons as an excuse to get acquainted. We went together all winter and I honestly believed the romance would end in marriage. Like a big fool I lost ,my .head and we were intimate on several occasions. I realize, too late, that I gave too much. Now it's impossible to make him settle for a goodnight Mss after all that's gone on between us. He ignores any reference to marriage. All he wants to do is come to my apartment, enjoy my com pany and taste some "good home- cooking". Please tell me. what to do; I love him. TAiRMSHED FOQL Dear Fool: Close up the soup kitchen and tell the big lug to park Ms carcass elsewhere. Just because you used, terrible judge- ment doesn't mean you have to continue to make the same old mistakes over and over again. Don't let a bad -past make you feel .that. the future is hopeless. An unfortunate experience needn't be a total loss if you learn from it. .Put an end to this relationship. Now that you've found out that the garden path is no short cut to the altar, don't forget the les-' son, Toots. Dear Ann: I am sick and tired of the way you knock the second wife of 'the divorced man. You continually refer to these women as "females-who came in during the second act" and a31 that sort of stuff. I'm one. of those "second act females" and would like to. know what crime we've committed.- Many of us have chosen to pick up the pieces and help a man get over a terrible .hurt.'The guy I married spent a good part of his life putting up with unfaithfulness, deceit, cheating, neglect and extravagance until he couldn't tolerate it another minute. His ex has remarried but our support checks keep her in plushy style while we. both work and live modestly. Please don't be so smug, Mrs. Landers. You sound like a "first act wife" who has been replaced. But I'll bet your resentment isn't so great that you pass up the all-, mony. Am I right?——GOOD G-UES9BR ' You are wrong—on every count. I have nothing against "second act .females". Many have done a wonderful job under difficult circumstances. I merely point out that the woman who marries a divorced man must expect problems. Often part of his • heart is rooted elsewhere (the kids. An unsuccessful marriage is bound to leave scars, guilt and mixed emotions, not to mention- heavy financial obligations. These.are the facts, Ma'am, no digs intended. (Ann Landers will be happy to help you with • your problems.
