could drastically change Amer icas cultural pattern and en dear its womenfolk to men throughout the world The lovely barrister plans to start a school patterned on the Japanese geisha method that would teach American women to be serene relaxed and to de velop a concept of the art of serving man The school which Bernice Turkewitz has about six months away from reality is being backed principally by a young investment broker in Washing ton D C who considers the re vamping of American women jhood a public service The young man understandably wants to remain nameless until he discovers whether or not the feminine legions of this nation consider the school an oppor tunity or an affront smashed into a parked truck just after midnight Dickoff died instantly of a broken neck

Herman all of Charles City His father died last November THE CREATION of such an institution whether an affront to the American woman or not takes an indirect sideswipe at her male counterpart While the system would teach women the art of grace for the sake of grace and not the artistry of grace for the sake of success its results would also be a training of American men in the art of appreciation The men of this country have a mistaken idea of geisha Miss Turkewitz flatly stated The whole concept of this art is peace and beauty However here since many men think it means something
