IT IS GETTING MORE AND MORE difficult to guess a woman's age. Because of hair-color, you can't tell "Does she or doesn't She',' and if you decide she does, you can't be sure if it is to change the shade or to cover up the grey. To complicate things even more, some youngsters who couldn't possibly be even prematurely white, go and bleach silver streaks in their hair. - o - YOU CAN'T TELL AGE BY looking for wrinkles anymore because everybody's skin is so moisturized and make-up filmed the creases don't dare show. Figures are not a sure-fire give away, either what with Spandex, Lycra and Metracal. Even habits are not much of an indication because so many people who should be sweet little old ladies go batting around in straight- shift sports cars and showing up at discotheque joints. I'm beginning to think the only way you can tell which is the mother of young children and which is the kids' grandmother is that Grandma is the one who is blonder, more youthful and carefree looking I - o - ABOUT THE ONLY WAY WE HAVE left to even guess a girl's age (all females are "girls" from age 0 to 99), is by their memories. If you can get a girl talking about what she did, wore, or considered attractive during the time she was courting, or being courted, you can pick up a few clues. You can't pin-point it much more accurately than within ten years and if she catches on to what you are doing she may clam up on you and not remember one blamed thing. But it is as good a theory as any. - o - FOR EXAMPLE, IF SHE remarks that the Fox Trot is a mighty nice dance and she thinks she can still do the Charleston (but implying its from the second time it was popular), - if she occasionally calls a nice-looking young man a "Shiek" or a popular girl a "Flapper" - if she occasionally forgets and applies her lipstick in a cupid's bow and refers to a hair style as a "Bob" if she calls love-making "petting" and music with a fast tempo, "jazz" - if she knows what a marcel is, or a hip flask, raccoon coat or a rumble seat - I'd say the lady is just about old enough to start collecting benefits from her Social Security. -o- IF SHE LOOKS KNOWLEDGABLE when the Great Depression is mentioned, remembers Empress Eugenia hats, beach pajamas, Croquinole permanent waves, miniature golf, and big name radio dance bands - if she says a good-looking boy is "cute" and what some people do on a date is "necking" - if she thinks the most attractive length for skirts is still mid-calf and the right age to be married is when the boy is out of school and has saved a hundred dollars and that Bing Crosby isn't really such an old-timer -. then I'd say the girl isn't too far, either way, from her fiftieth birthday. - o - IF A WOMAN LETS DROP THAT most of her love letters came by V-Mail and recalls when most of the fellows left at home were "either too young or too old" but if you kissed them you were "smooching" - if she remembers;when slacks were practically a gal's uniform but if she'did'wear skirts they were short and skimpy - .when a new pair of shoes cost several month's ration stamps - if Frank Sinatra still sends her and she likes to dance to Swing or Boogie Woogie music - then I'd suspect that life has begun for her and she is forty - or soon will be. - o - IF A GAL DOESN'T LAUGH VERY hard at the idea of wearing saddle shoes (the dirtier the better), prefers bright red or purple lipstick and nail polish, remembers getting out the needle to shorten her skirts left over from the "New Look", recalls Milton Berle as a big star, and spent much of the time when she was in the opposite sex'es company watching TV-if she remembers TV wrestling but referred to the affectionate kind as, "making out" - if she remembers hula hoops, rock and roll music, pointed-toed shoes making their appearance, and teased hair replacing short, close-fitting cap hairstyles.- then-tfd say it won't be long until the girl is thirty. - o - NATURALLY, WE COULD go back and analyze the trends even further, but for the purpose of guessing a female's age, It wouldn't do us much good. Anybody under thirty has no right to be coy about revealing their birthdays 1 And if you are trying to guess my correct age as revealed through this column, you may as well give up. You see, I have a very long memory and even remember lots of things that never happened to me personally I - o - HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR THE WEEK OF August 8 through 14, (Tm not telling any ages even if I know them) include Poley Hanson, Kenneth Peirce, Gene Furst, Fritz Neilsen, Don Smith, Jr., Murray Mowers.
