Plain Jane more attentive, caring By GEORGE R. PLAGENZ This was an unusual letter, even when you consider that we ministers get our share of unusual letters. What makes many of them unusual is that they have little to do with religion. No one asks about the Holy Ghost or angels or what a day in heaven will belike. A lot of letters have to do with the unfairnesses of life and "why MISSOURI STREET Church of Christ Hiwoy 146 East of tunnel SEEKING THOSE SEEKING JESUS SUNDAY: Bible Class 9:00 A.M.

A much smaller number inquire "why good things happen to bad people." Usually when these people write of the inequities of life they arc speaking of their own unhappy, unfair situations — or. as is the case in this letter, of the unhappy situations of members of their family. "I'm worried about my 18- year-old daughter," writes this mother. "She's homely. Like her father. She's got a wonderful personality, but the popular boys are interested only in the cute girls. Does a nice girl like Linda have to resign herself to being an old maid or getting a proposal only from a ditch digger?" I'm not worried about Linda, and her mother shouldn't be either. If it's a ditch digger who pops the question to her, it will probably be a rich, handsome mining engineer. Adolescence is hard on girls who aren't pretty, but they often end up marrying successful, good-looking men. I've known many tycoons who married homely women. Or wish they had. Whai frequently gives the homely girl the advantage over the Cybill Shepherds in the marital market is that the Plain Jane doesn't spend all her lime trying to be beautiful. So she has lime to listen to a man tell his dreams And time to help him achieve his dreams. "Said like a man," sneers the feminist. But 1 could be quoting a syndicated woman columnist explaining why Nancy Reagan was voted by readers of a men's magazine as the woman with whom they would most like to spend an evening. What were these men - age 60 to 75'' No. they were 1R to 35. It's Mrs. lleagan who is in her 60s. This woman writer says the new generation of men like Nancy because she is the kind of woman "most 1!)87 women refuse to be: She is a great wife to her husband." What's the 1987 woman like? "She's too busy to listen, she's too busy to nurture and she's too busy to go with her man on business trips." Nancy, by contrast, "makes her husband the center of her world. Her biggest joy in life is taking wonderful care of him." Consequently -- surprise, surprise — a woman who in a few years will be pushing 70 is selected as America's No. 1 fantasy date! At this point Linda's mother might be inclined to point out that Nancy, unlike Linda, has her attractiveness going for her too. But with a world of younger, prettier women for these men to choose from, I doubt that had much to do with Nancy's selection. It's a funny thing, though. Men may not put physical beauty at the top of their list of desirable feminine attributes. Still most women would rather be considered beautiful than dependable and true. Take Tom trying to explain to a friend how he got his black eye. "It was like this." said Tom. "Ed was telling me about the beautiful girl he was going to marry. I told him my Clara was bettor than any beauty,.) said beautiful girls thought only of themselves, while homely old girls like mine knew they had to do things to please a 'man. So they made heller wives." "Did Ed hit you for saying that?" asked Tom's friend. "No," said Tom. "Clara did. She was in (be next room and overheard the conversation."
