SATURDAY, July 23 No meetings scheduled. YouVe the Doctor By Joseph D. Wassersug, M. D. FOB A HEALTHY TAN , If you haven't yet started a program of safe sunbathing, you had better begin at once before it's too late. The best tans are acquired by gradual exposure to the sunshine in the late spring with increasing exposures as the days lengthen. With the summer already well upon us, there's no time to lose. For most persons, the best rule is: Start low, go slow. At midday, when the sun is high, the burning and ultraviolet rays of the sun strike the skin perpendicularly and penetrate to a deeper level. In the early morning or late afternoon, the sun's rays are more oblique and so they "ricochet" off the skin surface. Tanning by the slow ahd easy process avoids burns and the miserable blistering, itching, and peeling that follow. Color of Skin Color of the skin is important. Blue-eyed blonds may find that they burn more easily than they tan. For these persons, a suntan lotion is practically a necessity. Albinos can never tan and so they must avoid the sun's rays as far as possible. The dark-skinned person Is usually more resistant to the sun's rays but this resistance is not absolute—anyone, no matter how dark his complexion, may be sunburned. The Committee on Cosmetics of the American Medical Association endorses the slow-and-easy method. "No suntan preparation should be used in this method of tanning by gradual exposure," they advise. "As a general measure, the first period of exposure should be approximately 15 minutes around midday. This may be extended by a few minutes each day, An increment of 20 or 30 per cent of the exposure time the day before is safe if there is no sudden change in intensity of sunshine." Watch That Clock The clock is the only dependable guide to safe exposure. The color of the skin during sunbathing is not reliable because, except for severe burns, reddening does not occur for more than an hour after actual burning. Besides, you can't judge how fast you'll burn by the apparent brightness of the sun. The main advantage of suntan preparations is that they permit an individual to remain in the sun for a longer time wthout severe burnng than if the skin were unprotected. Suntan preparations contain chemicals called sunscreens which absorb the burning rays of the sun in varying degrees. There are many different chemicals which have this ability and so the types of sunscreens are wide and varied. It must be pointed out, too, that persons who are exposed to sunshine for long periods, such as farmers, sailors, or cowboys, may become more vulnerable to cancerous and precancerous skin conditions by the continuous bombardment of the sun's rays. Moderate exposures to sunshine are generally healthy; excessive exposures are dangerous. Tablets taken by mouth to promote darkening of the skin are rather an innovation and may still be considered unreliable. Various dyes that stain the skin a handsome brown and avoid the necessity of sunshine altogether are still under scrutiny by official agencies. These "tanning" products are simply cosmetics and do not really contribute to one's health. €> I960 N. Y. Herald Tribune, Inc. Glamour Gals of Yesteryear Are Just That—Despite TV By RUTH MIJXETT TV may be able to intimidate the American housewife with photographic trickery such as thick cake icings, the likes of which she is never able to duplicate in her own kitchen since she can't get by with "icing" her cake with shaving cream. But one thing, for sure, TV hasn't been able to do as yet is to take an aging glamour gal and make her look like anything but what she is. Whenever TV trots out one of these fortyish or fiftyish ex- glamour gals in a romantic lead, the cameras don't lie well enough to make her look like anything but what she is, a middle- aged woman who should have quit trying to be a glamour girl years ago. "I can remember when 1 thought she was really something," Pop says with a touch of sadness and disbelief as actors young enough to be her sons swarm around her. TV writers always seem to think they can make an ex-glamour girl seem like the real thing it they will surround her with young actors who are supposed to be smitten by her irresistible charms. But this trickery never rings true. So Pupa looks sad to see one of the idols of his youth looking every bit her age while trying desperately to look young. And then he glances over at Mama—and all of a sudden he realizes that the years haven't wreaked the havoc on her that they have on the one-time glamour, queen. Mama hasn't had to starve herself until she has a gaunt, hard look. Mama hasn't held on to the mannerisms of youth that look incongruous when practiced by a middle-aged woman. Mama's face has softened through the years spent in devotion to others. And when Papa «ays, as though thinking out loud, "She must be years older than you are," Mama smiles a smile of deep content. TV hasn't found any way to humiliate her by making ex-glamour queens look as though the years hadn't touched them. Thank goodness for that I (All rights reserved, Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) * Beware Barbecue Mitcues BOSTON, /P—A word of advice to all backyard barbecue cooks and chefs: "Don't barbecue yourself along with the steak." The words are those of Miles Woodworth, flammable liquids expert of the National Fire Protection Assn., who adds: "Play it safe. Never add any kind of flammable liquid fo* an already-burning fire." He says the worst backyard cooking accidents are likely to happen when someone freshens an already-started fire with kerosene, paint thtnners, alcohol or one of the liquids sold to get a fire going. "The moment one of these liquids hits a live coal," explains Woodworth, "there's a whoosh of flame which can envelop the arms and face of anyone nearby in a searing fire. "Any starting liquids you use before a fire is lighted, use sparingly—and never use gasoline. Keep any containers holding these liquids far removed from the fire. "Keep youngsters at a safe distance too." he advises, "especially little girls in party dresses." * Minimum-Care Suits are Not Always So M 'Lord's minimum-care or "wash-and-wear" suits may give milady a few headaches. According to Marjorie Sohn, University of Illinois extension clothing specialist, these garments may not save the homemaker's time. And they may not be so easy to care for as women would like. Miss Sohn reports that researchers at the University of Maryland found that it took 64 minutes to pretreat, wash and dry a man's suit. During much of this time, some attention was needed. To get the suit ready for wearing, it was necessary to touch it up with an iron. This took 18 minutes if the suit had been machine dried and 22 minutes if drip dried. Whether the man of the house is satisfied with the results of the care of his suit is another question. Miss Sohn suggests that this satisfaction will probably depend upon the use of the garments and the man's fastidiousness. To help get maximum satisfaction from the minimum-care suit, Miss Sohn suggests that shoppers consider the following before they buy: 1. The fabric must be well blended or finished. 2. All linings, interlinings and trimmings must also be made of minimum-care fabrics. 3. Seams must be free from puckers. , 4. Available laundry equipment will be a large factor in whether garments are "time- savers." 5. The person who does the laundry must have the patience and understanding to follow the instructions received on hang tags and labels. Time Yourself In the Sun to A void Dangerous Burn By ALICIA HAKT Despite the yearly warnings about the rays of the sun, thousands of American women fJock to the beaches to bake themselves a dandy lobster red. In doing this, they damage their skin temporarily and may damage it permanently. They can also toughen and thicken it by overexposure to the sun to say nothing of drying out skin that already may be overly dry. This hastens the aging process at lightning speed. So have a healthy respect for what the sun can do. In small doses, it's healthful. Provided th,at you time yourself, that you use a good protective sun cream and that you get out of the sun fast if it seems too intense, you should acquire a healthy, golden tan with no troubles. But don't try to turn mahogany and don't try to do all of your tanning within the space of just a few days. Take it easy; you'll get there just the same. Beauty -Tips To make your eyes look luminous and the whites of your eyeballs whiter, simply draw a thin brushline of white eye* shadow along the top of your other eyeliner.

Ann Landers BOUV News of Marriage, Baby, Separate Announcements DEAR ANN: Floyd and I were secretly married during our senior year in high school I just found out I am pregnant. Floyd and I got both sets of parents together last night and told them the news. Floyd's mother and my father hud to be fanned back to consciousness. It was horrible. Today we got together again and everyone was feeling better. The ques- Ann Lnmlrra. tion we want you to help us answer is this: Would it be proper to have wedding announcements printed up for our friends and relatives and show a picture of a stork, to sort of hint! at the other news? Floyd and I think we ought to announce everything at once and get it over with. Our folks don't agree. What do you think? PATSY DEAR PATSY: I don't think so either. Have the wedding announced as soon as possible —and save the baby announcement as long as you possibly can. * * » • DEAR ANN: I am sick in body and in mind. I don't know where to turn. We are both nearing 60 and have been in love for three years. I'm self-supporting and manage to get by but there are few luxuries. When we met he was down on his luck. We found comfort, companionship and happiness together. We talked about a future. At Christmas time he met a cute little woman who is younger than I am. When he started to take her out it almost killed me. He even suggested we stop seeing each other for a while. Now he has cut me down to one visit a week. It used to be every night. No one paid any attention to this man before I started to see him. Now I'm sure it flatters his ego to have two women wanting him. Please, Ann, tell me what to do. I'm at the END OF THE LINE DEAR END OF THE LING: The sensible thing to do when you reach the end of the line is to get off. Nothing is so unattractive to a man as a discarded woman who gets on her knees and begs for a crumb of affection. This is the one sure way to extinguish any small spark that may be smoldering in the ashes. A couple "nearing 60" who found "comfort, companionship and happiness together" doesn't wait three years to marry—if the feeling is mutual. Stop seeing this man at once and make new friends. It's your only chance to salvage some self respect, and to make a new life.

He keeps saying in a half-joking wav thai he's going to marry me when I am 20. I like this guy but I don't love him and furthermore I never will. Jn fact, I'm un- comlortable with him because he is more worldly than most of the fellows I'm used to. I don't care for cigarettes but I smoke when I'm with him because I think he wants me to. I also have a cocktail or two with him even though it makes me dizzy and silly. The trouble is, my dad works for this fellow and I don't want anything to happen to my dad's job. What shall I do? EVE DKAR EVE: Your dad was not hired because you agreed to date this fellow, was he? Well, he won't be fired when you drop him. He's too old for you.
