1 I M 1t 60 Saturday, May 7, 1966 The Ottawa Journal Saturday , Section - Henry Asks ...And Idol Chatter . YOU ANSWER! --A-- .- m - - JSP ' WHAT BOYS LOOK FOR -IN A GIRL? Dear Henry, This morning, having read your analysis of the essence of sex attraction and, feeling rather facetious, I thought of expressing my feelings also, subtly unsolicited, or solicitously subtle. To me, -your analysis ex-J presses the essence of sex attraction the very idea denotes it as a sex appeaTas-diversified as girls themselves, ; A girl's5 physicat charms are like the petals which make up the lady slipper. Without, the petals, there is no flower; but with only petals, there is no subtle fragrance, no my-j sticjsm. It seems tor-me those who deny a realization of their erotic impulses and phantasies for the feminine are in effect denying their masculinity; and furthermore try to substitute pseudo - platonism for eroticism. Even Artur Rubinstein, In his 80th year, may "shoot an appraising eye at a leggy young blonde at an air terminal" ... "Hmm, not bad . . . Shall I ask her to dance? No. she's too serious." But all this is but the petals of the flower. And what is the fragrance of the flower? It may be warmth, flattery, intellectual- Ism, coupled . with sincerity, -spontaneity. r o m a n t i cism coupled with beauty WhOjreally knows But . whan the perfume is sensed,', the masculine may whisper appasionata, "Lady slipper, shall we danoe?" Cordially yours, ., LARRY WEISZ. 527 Penhill-Avenuer Ottawa. Dear Henry, Re: "An Appeal to the Fair Sex" (Journal,- April 16): you're a lousy poet. Sincerely, CHERRY HASSARD. Glebe. ' Dear Henry, You say that many girls distort their behavior and appearance to catch a boy. and I agree. But I take exception 'The Ham in Me Had to Come Out' Dick Explains His Showbiz "the ham In me had to-' come out." That's hoWj TV . personality Dick Maloney explains his entry into many different aspects of show business. The 29-year-old host of the CJOH television show "Saturday Date" has also been a disc Jockey, an emcee a n d singer in nightclubs and a song writer. A native of Ottawa. Dick attended St. Patrick's High School, where his impersonation of Al Jolson at a school dance marked the start of his singing career. His comedy career was launched by a regular column in his school paper, the "Patrician." Following his graduation, Dick worked as a radio announcer for CJBQ in Belle-, ville, CJCV in Niagara Falls, : CJML in Hamilton and CFRA - In Ottawa. He ahrorr had several emcee and sng I n g Jobs at such nightclubs as the Piccadilly Club in Toronto and the Yacht Hotl jtt .Niagara" on the Lake. "1 enjoyed working at CFRA," says Dick, "because f I had my own show nightly and they let- me do crazy things on the air." Last October, Dick started work at CJOH, where he does commercials,' newscasts, . and bingo shows, as well as his teenage, dance program.' ' ACCORDING TO Dlck, there shouldn't he a "war" going on between teenagers "With more co-operation'be--' Iween the two groups, 'attention getters' like long hair . wouldn't be necessary," he says. -' , "I think7 that high school principals are right In regulating students' hair styles. Teenagers .will have to con-C -forrrr toTftscipItne alTt heir lives .and obeying rules- isThe principal, , social worker. good character training. The brown eyed announcer doesn't entirely blame teen- when you imply that this is because "they have become (or always were) inhibited, lazy, shallow - minded and selfish." If you got to know a . group of girls who distorted . their, behavior and appear-- ance. you would probably find . out that behind it all, each and everyone is different and deep down has a personality of their own. Girls act false because they are not sure what kind of impression they will create on the opposite sex by being . themselves. The boys you mention in your column have various vjews on what to' look for in a girl. Because, of this, shouldn't the girls act natural and be themselves? If" they did, the chances are they'll" meet someone who appreciates them" for'who they ae, " and they'll really have something in common. : '- & ! Kitte Replies Confidential to "Young Man In Love": You should feel sure enough about her feelings for you hot toiavejQkeepasking whether or not she really loves you. Perhaps her unhappy experience with the man in her past has made her distrustful of men, and it will take time for you to prove your sincere regard for her so she can outgrow this fear. Jjt the meanwhile. I think it would be better-if ' you "both " went on with your careers and dated when it suits both. ' with 'both dating others, too. until you are ready, several years from now, to consider getting engaged, and setting a wedding date. If being with her makes you uneasy, because of your doubts about her feelings for you, tell her this: Ask if she'd like to stop dating at all, for an agreed period, to give her time to think out how she feels about you . agers for thelFcceiitric be havior. "ften the fault' lies in the home.' -he . says. "Adults let teenagers down when they preach one thing but practise another. Parents should be firm and teach-their children what to appreciate rather than give them everything they want." Dick's clean - cut image when he's performing is con sistent with his outlook on. life. "The world needs to change its concept of hero worship." he feels. "There is a confusion and overlapping between the terms 'hero' and 'heel.' We need an old-fashioned 'good guy' hero rather than more James Bonds." Frank Sinatra has been a Teenage Canada The attractive 16 - year - old girl was active in three student clubs, making a good B average in Grade 11 and lucky enough to have successful parents who adored her.

Dear Henry, On reading your April , 33 column, I was impressed by the comments made by several. of the girls. Chalk one up for Carol Gurofsky, t .is good to know that some girls look for other things in boys besides sharp clothes and the "Don Juan" approach. : I also feel that some of the criticism was well put. It is probably true that some man in them to the back of the scene but this is not all the boys' fault Manners such as helping a girl with her coat or opening the car door are not born in ' a person. They are taught by parents. It is true a'so that boys tend to be vain but on t h e whole I feel that we "enjoy-friendly criticism- and some difference' of opinion. Who wants a girl friend or date that is as pliable as a stuffed doll? - As for boys being too carefree ' is it any worse than the high - handed sophistication that many girls seem to have?

"I admire his singing and tend to sound a bit like him," he says. IN THE COMEDY field. Dick is an admirer of Bob Hope but is attempting to develop his own style. ';I write, steal and rearrange my material," he laughs. He would like to combine singing, comedy and even a soft-shoe routine for variety in his act.

Detroit, Michigan, has received a federal grant to set up three centres where 1 both instruction and medical advice will be available. But Boston, Mass., may be the real leader so far.
