COVER ALL OVER GREEN OR RED TWEED PLASTIC—BLOND WOOD AMERICA'S FINEST ROCKERS AT— Short Courte To Romance Is Offered Burlesque Queen Would Teach Wives To Vamp Husbands In Four Easy Lessons Bv CLAIRE COX NEW YORK. Dec. 15 —UP— A burlesque queen said Wednesday she could cut the nation’s divorce rate in half by teaching housewives how to vamp their husbands — in four easy lessons. She is hoping to start just such a “short course to new romance” next Tuesday, if enough women can spare the time from hairing, scrubbing and tending the children. Strip - tease dancer Geraldine (Sequin) Garner said she would start a series of illustrated lectures by showing the ladies how to walk like Marilyn Monroe or Mae West while pushing a vacuum cleaner. Soft Music And All Before she’s through, she hopes to drill pupils in the art of boudoir decor lavender lights and soft music. how to hide beauty secrets from husbands (mudpacks applied at midnight after the menfolk are asleep) and How to wear a filmy negligee casually. “Women are using their charms to entice men into marriage, and then they fall apart,” Sequin said. “A housewife should always be charming. Men like charming women or they wouldn’t go to burlesque shows." Sequin said she hopes to teach housewives the same “strictly ladylike” techniques she is using as the star attraction at a Newark burlesque house. Artistic Performance "I do an artistic performance, never bumps and grinds," she said. “Men don’t like to see those things. I start out in a stylish gown and wind up in a negligee. That’s much more enticing than nothing at all.” Sequin is 23, single and the holder of nine beauty crowns, including “Miss Malibu Beach," Calif., and “Miss Bikini Bathing suit of 1954.” She’s the sweetheart of Battery D, 142nd Anti-Aircraft Battalion, in the Bronx, which has named a halftrack after her. A native Californian and daughter of a Hollywood barber. Sequin is five-feet, three-inches tall, weighs 110 pounds and has a 3.9-inch bust, 24-inch w’aist and 30-inch hips. She concedes her figure isn’t perfect, "just interesting." Now, here's what he has in mind for her school for housewives. After demonstrating how’ to stroll exotically around the house. Sequin will draw a blueprint of a model moudoir. “In the first place, the lights should be dim. preferably colored.” she said. ‘There’s a very flattering shade of medium lavender. ; It makes the skin look tawney and coppery in color." She also recommends soft, dreamy music and soft colors, with pastel ceilings, “be c a u s e they aren’t as harsh as w’hite." Lesson No. 3 will deal with “how to remain beautiful without giving away any secrets.” That, Sequin said, meaas a wife has to learn how to stay awake until her husband goes to sleep. Then, she pops out of bed, slaps on cold cream and a chin strap and puts her hair I in curlers. She also has to be out of bed at least a half hour before him in the morning so she can take down her hair and put on her makeup. “After the students learn all these things," Sequin said, “they will be ready for the final class— negligee training. Every woman should have a filmy negligee. It j doesn’t need to be expensive. I’ve seen them for S10 and under." Sequin had only one more bit of advice. “Be a lady at all times," she I said, slipping into a mink Bikini. Knights Templar Lodge Of Plainview Holds Election PLAINVIEW.
