Page 4— THE BAYTOWN SUN. SATURDAY. MAY 24, 1952 Modeling As Career In Mind? By HELEN FOLLETT WOULD you like to be a. model and strut in a fashion show or pose for fashion photographs? As beauty is no rarity and as glamour girls are a dime a dozen, model agencies are now looking lor young ladies with "character laces.'':By that they mean laces that show Intelligence and culture, that have individuality. - There are other requirements too. Such models are not to have the graven image face considered necessary heretofore for parading in lovely clothes. They must smile easily; Most important, they must have a proud walk. Ches high, spinal column extended head on the level—the usual good posture formula. Age, .height, weight, body con tour, the shape of the legs are ' taken into consideration. O course', fastidiousness as to attir —getting into frocks that ar actually improved by the wearer —is a must. Ages range from eighteen to twenty-five, although some older girls have good jobs because of their wide modeling experience. ' § : ''_ Ideal Complexion .«•• To be able to pose lor color pictures, -the complexion must tie ideal and the hair lovely ] and beautifully dressed. Smooth,] . straight hair is an asset, : but why . not? Only the young and lovely i ones can wear -their mops without a sign of a wave or a ringlet. Says the head:of an agency that finds .-employment for models: • "The work, is- not a snap, by any means. Posing "can become tire; some. A girl has to be'on hand 'when the client wants her, no ; matter how' she may happen to feel; she" must never fall down on an appointment. Sometimes the sitting goes on for hours. These girls have to take excellent care of themselves. They coddle their complexions .with creams. They shampoo, their.;hair twice a week -. sometimes and they • exercise to '••', 'keep their figure precisely right It just isn't fun. It's hard work.' Worried Over Promotion? Don't Scold Child; Try to Help Him, Instead prove at their books; most do worse. To scold, warn and threaten is so silly. There is an occasional lagging child in the grades, however who might improve his school work a bit if his parents Were to require hmY to be home on practically all nights just preceding school days, and to go at his home assignments promptly and regularly. Particular Difficulties But in most cases, the problem needs more for solution. If yoi know your child is lagging a' school, try to find out from his teacher all you can about his particular difficulties in each subject.

Tutor May Aid A quiet, patient teacher might By GARRY CLEVELAND MYERS, Ph.D. ! IN a few school areas all the i children in the grades are promoted wholesale. Worries there by parents and children are postponed to later months or years, only to grow more severe; perhaps at that time. But in most areas right now a ' good many parents are worried over whether.or not their children will be promoted. Usually the children are also. The problem for these parents is to" do the best they can to help the child gain enough in learning progress ."to make 'it"; and if he doesn't, not to burden him selves with needless the matter. financial sacrifice to parents. If you try to give the child such help yourself, you will have to exercise great patience and self- m*stery,You will need to set the stage so he will feel hopeful and self-respecting. You won't, therefore, express or even feel vexation over his mistakes and difficulties. Your voice will be gentle and reassuring and your breathing undisturbed. Otherwise, you had better not try at all to help him with his lessons, lest you do more harm than good. Have no brother worry over Warning Not Enough. many children can be "pushed _ across the line."

It might take time to find a lot with your qualifications, and it is best not to be hurried. The taxes on vacant property are small .Your architect could help you choose the site.
