The, best brains of science have come up witn new ways of prolonging youth and beauty; society ha.-: provided new outlets for her energies hi politics and business; she has lived long enough to learn that lite can be fun at any age. but more fun after the uncertainties and struggles of early youth are past. Two famous grandmas on every list are those hardy charmers, Gloria Swanson and Marlene Dietrich. La Swanson Is so busy making TV films and running a wholesale dress .business she has no time to count birthdays, but her well-publicized allure carries a higher voltage than "ever, and her figure still is well within the . dimensions of the bathing beauty. L» DIeWch can be mistaken for her daughter at 10 paces, 'and her famous legs cause as much excitement as ever. Recently a famous dress designer called her the most Imitated woman—(he one most women would like to look like, the one who wears clothes best and setsjhe mode for others to follow. The glamorous Gloria says women are getting younger all the time—and she's on hand to prove it. She claims she meets grandmothers every day who look and act as young and sleek and vital as she. It's because they have learned not to watch the calendar, she says, and have found that the world it full of a number of things that are lota of fun If you take the trouble to look for them.
