Tuesday, Sept, 24, 1963 Beauty Shops Probably Are Mad at Boyle » By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) - Jumping to conclusions: Tf your wife worries about her complexion, tell her a long walk in the rain will improve it more than a trip to a beauty parlor. Irish girls are noted for their lively complexions. But they are brought out by the rain mists of their native land, not by any magic lotions or expensive creams. The first thing most Southern people do after moving here is to qiu't eating grits. The second thing they do is start drinking scotch instead of bourbon. Since Helen Hayes quit playing Queen Victoria the American theater has been going steadily downhill. Manhattan's street vendors of roasted chestnuts make most of their money off tourists. I never knew anyone who ate one sack who ever tried another. It used to be a sign of success to carry an attache case. Now it's a badge of the dull and unimportant. Here's something you can bet on. Nine out of 10 men who have a martini for lunch will pass the dessert. But three out of five suburban housewives in town for a luncheon spree take both cocktail and dessert.

The reason many men remain bachelors is that they can't find a woman who can sew on buttons as well as they can. The best practical psychologist I knew was an elderly panhandler who said, as he held out his hand, "Gee, you've got a beautiful face." Each sucker, after giving him a quarter, paused at the next store window and looked in it self-consciously at himseif As soon as he is promoted to detective, a patrolman starts wearing tight shoes — so no one will think he's a flatfoot.

Main St Gold Strike NIDWALDEN, Switzerland (AP) — Franz Amstutz cut down a tree near the fashionable Alpine play ground of Burgenstock, and trod on a box crammed with gold pieces. Local police are trying to de cide who gets the gold — the farmer, the man who owns the ground where it was found, or the original owner, perhaps a Frenchwoman from Nice who stayed in the neighborhood during World War II. Franz isn't worried. No matter who claims the gold, he still is entitled to a finder's reward of up to 50 per cent of the total, which is 3,700 francs at today's values. feels broke until she loses her last | charge account.
