MlHett Goodness Isn't Interesting Is Youth Attitude "It's difficult to go on makiiij good women interesting. ' ' Those are the words Greer Garson used in explaining why she is going to switch from the good-woman roles, such as Mrs. M i n i v er, which have made her famous, to portraying shady Indies on the screen. Greer Garson isn't tne nrst actress who has decided that it is too difficult to make good women interesting and has demanded to play bad-women roles. It is a pity to see one after another actress of mature charm take that adolescent attitude. But perhaps we shouldn't blame them too much. The responsibility for their decision is shared by oth- s.' Writers today don't do good women justice. They have discovered that a heroine without morals sells a lot more books than a heroine who is a good woman. They have also discovered that we, the reading and viewing public. go for the book with the sexy title and jacket and the movie, stage or television play about a woman whose morals aren't all they should be. So instead of struggling to make good women interesting, they take the easy way out by writing Dest sellers and smash-hit movies and jjlays about shady ladies. They give the money-paying public what it seems to want instead of offering something more inspiring but harder to sell. There is another thing the writers are up against. The American people today are quick to brand as "corny" any kind of art that glorifies the homely virtues. We confuse realism with cheapness and filth, and think we are being sophisticated when we do so. If it is difficult for an actress to make good women interesting that is a reflection not only on the maturity of the actress but on the maturity of writers and the audience that both the writers and actresses aim to please.

She's Also Nice to Hug By ALICIA HART NEA Beauty Editor One child (now grown) recalls a high point of the holidays was a wonderful grandmother's visit. She came in the door in a rush of winter-cold fur. Her hug meant the smooth cold feel of the fur, the crunch of exciting packages ana a defp breath of rich perfume, always the same scent. These pleasures of the senses— the smooth coolness' of fur, the wonderful smell—are things that a mature woman should use as enhancing qualities. She's nice to >ook at. of course, but nice to feel and smell, too. Children, who enjoy their senses without restraint, recall these things, however long it is between visits. It Is not necessary for a woman to be able to own a fur coat to woo the tactile sense. Soft rich fabrics that give real pleasure to the touch are as easy to find in good colors as are the harsh fabrics. Nor must a woman wear youthful perfumes to compete for noses A fine, identifying scent will do trie trick *Just as well. One mature woman relied on a lavender sachet in her pocket and it worked very wel 1 . While the question of furs and perfumes axe under discussion, it is sensible to pass on the nints of fur manufacturers about combining the two. Never put perfume right on the fur. Put on the fabric lining, sprayed liberally. Then spray the perfume in the air and walk through it. This will cling to your furs for months, even if they're In the closet. Direct application will discolor fur, however durable. H. L. Halsell Guest Speaker At Beta Sigma Phi Meetings H. L.
