f HUHS1MT,. KPT. HAL iOYLE COLUMN— Mustaches Make Men Manly? Maybe Most Males Misunderstand NEW YORK CW-Many women have married a man because off his bankroll. But did any woman ever marry a fellow solely because of Ills mustache? ; Did she ever, crumpling shyly against his manly bosnm murmur: "You yourself have an utterly resistible personality, my dear. But your mustache! Ah, 1 can fight against it no longer. It has swept me quite oil my feet." A boy, rubbing castor oil on his upper lip to stir the slow growth of Ihe reluctant fuzz thereon, may daydream of such situations. But I have never heard' in real life of a mustache with much romantic influence. What fs_the actual social Impact of the mustache? This question arises because it appears that Ihis form ot male facial landscaping Is getting more popular.. It seems" to me I see more and more mustaches around. I would like fo believe this Is only because there are more people in the world, as I like to look at the bright side of things. I would hale to see mustaches become a badge of valor or a measure of achievement-, as in a society in which that were true 'I would have .to become a hermit. Men grow mustaches for only three general reasons: 1. They have an inferiority complex. • 2. To pay an election bet. 3. Curiosity. the first of these reasons Is the most widespread. Ami the average _ mustache carrier will admit it, it pressed. . < To Be Different "I grew mine to prove to myself thnt I could do something- the other guys ' in my crowd hadn't done," one said. "It helped me overcome a lifelong feeling of inferiority, and gave me an immediate sense of security and personal victory." The boy or man who rears a mustache out of curiosity or to pay an election bet lie has lost soon finSs the novelty wears thin, and oif comes the mustache. The time and trouble it takes are no longer worth the effort. • - • But one who grows a mustache lo cure himself of inferorty wjll never yield it until death. In case of lire he places its safely N be'fore that of women and children. . It is his hairy manner of success in the battle every man fights within • himself, his flag against the world. Behuid every mustache lurks a mouse that has been turned •by."this symbol into a lion. rver vatch a man with a mustache? Notice how he toys with it, reaching up now and then to be .comforted'.by the fact it Is still th?re? He''never'is safe from the fear someone ' will take it away from him, or shave it oif while he is'asleep. • A mustache automatically. turns a man with an inferiority complex into a man with a superiority complex. Secretly or openly, he becomes a snob about it. Often he will take more trouble to discipline it properly than the ordinary parent does to curb a wayward son. He. couldn't sell R for :a cup of coffee, but to him it is a patch of '.real estate more vnl : unble than all the forests ot Canada. Mustaches Make the" Man In his case clothes don't make the man—but his. mustache does. That, I believe, is why wives put up with husbands' mustaches. Being kissed by them must be vaguely like being hit In the: mouth with a toothbrush. But a woman tells herself, "Well, If It makes my little man feel taller, I'll go along." And that's what the mustache does do. It gives the fellow the same feeling he had when he wore stills as n boy. What I have against mustaches Is that I once tried to grow one out ol curiosity _ and found 1 couldn't. It didn't grow. It drooped and dribbled. How do you cure an Inferiority complex arising from the discovery you can (ear a telephone book In half, but can't g io w a measly piddling, worthless, unsightly, out- of-date, Impractical thing like a mustache that nobody really wants anyway? • Soccer Player Faces Death for Killing Referee BELGRADE,.
