Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 12, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, August 12, 1970 Ann Landers Dina Merrill Launches New Career In Cosmetics DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am one of the Silent Majority in the sense that I have never written to Ann Landers. Until now. The letter that got to me was signed "Sorry Mom." She was bemoaning the fact that her brilliant son was mined by one of those far-out Eastern schools. Mom was sick about the kid's long hair, his unruly mus- tache, wild sideburns, Jesus sandals, faded jeans, love beads and his verbalized desire to bum down everything and re- place it with "something better." (He didn't say what.) I'll bet Mom wasn't sick enough to cut off the kid's college funds and tell him to make his own way. College can be a unique opportunity for a student to ex- ercise his independence while still under the influence of parents who foot the bills. They have the right to set up some guidelines. Too many parents let their kids do as they please, then they wring their hands when the kid's go wrong. If a college student gets too far out out of line 'his parents should tell him to shape up or support himself. A student who wants to burn down the world should have to buy his own matches. Silence DEAR BROKEN SILENCE: I am in favor of the right to peaceful protest, but students who destroy property and re- sort to violence to achieve their goals, no matter how worthy, should not be subsidized. Parents don't owe their kids riot money. And students who are not revolutionaries should not be penalized and deprived of their right to an education. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Please tell women who go to bar- gain sales not to say to a person who is looking at a item, "If you don't want that I would like to buy it." This does one of two things both of them bad. It makes the woman who is considering the item more eager to buy it than she would ordinarily be. Or it makes her feel guilty if she does buy it. Yesterday I paid for a dress. I didn't need and would not have purchased it if a very pushy woman had not stood at my elbow making such remarks as, "That's exactly what I've been looking for. Hurry up and make up your mind." I am stuck with this "bargain" and can't return it because it was on sale. I could wring that woman's neck for what she did to me. Please print. ?33 DEAR MINUS: She didn't do anything to you. You did it to yourself. Consider it a lesson and wear the dress to the next bargain sale as a reminder. What awaits you on the other side of the marriage veil? How can you be sure your marriage will work? Read Ann Landers' booklet "Marriage What To Expect." Send your your request to Ann Landers in care of Canada Wide Feature Service Ltd. 245 St. James Street West, Montreal 126, Quebec, enclosing 50 cents in coin and a long, stamped, self-addressed envelope. By HELEN HENNESSY NEA Women's Editor NEW YORK (NEA) Ac- tress Dina Merrill sat in her New York office whore she has recently started on a second career. Miss Merrill is launching a new skin care collection that tears her name and-one which she helped to develop: Dressed in deep violet, she looked more the glamorous star she is than the business executive she also is. And she chatted enthusiastically about her new cosmetic line, today's fashions, her film career, her children and tier husband, actor Cliff Robertson. The skin care collection, she said, came about by chance. "At a Coty Awards presenta- tion some years ago I happen- ed to be seated next to Tom C o o n e y, vice-president of Pfizer. And that's where it all began." Dina, it seems, was having difficulty with many of the beauty products she Was using. And she felt that Cooney was just the man to query on the subject. "Some of the stuff I've used gave me she said. (Dina Merrill with "Other products designed to moisturize made my skin ac- tually peel. I feel certain it was be- cause synthetic rather than natural ingredients were being used and told Tom I didn't un- derstand why a line of natural beauty products couldn't be de- veloped that would be simple to use and effective a line that wouldn't confuse both the skin and the woman." Cooney replied that if Dina would help in the creation of such a line his firm would back her with the most sophisticated research facilities in America. She accepted the challenge and went to work. As the products were developed she tested them all on her own skin for several years. And now her new Amaranlhe line, named for the mythical flower that never fades, is an accomplish- ed fact. Miss Merrill worked with a Western worn before. "The first time he did m face I looked in the mirror a nearly fainted. I was shock! pink. .And I soon learned tl there was no tan theatric make-up to bo found ai-ou town. I had to use my ow test products and do my ow of life. make-up all through, the film "This line was tested far be-1 ing. They're not for stage us yond the call of she! but they were all I had' an quipped. i they had to do." may look cool and aloof but she is neither. There's warmth in her manner and she enjoys the funny side "I was filming my latest movie, 'The Walking in Japan. Only three of us in the cast were American. Everyone hi the crew, even the make-up man, was Japanese and they spoke no English. And the make-up man had never Dina who has been namec World's Best Dressed Worn; three times and has been el vated to the Fashion Hall Fame isn't happy with curre hemlines.

"We have to fight what some designers are trying to do to us." she continued. "Look at the shoes we're expected to wear. They're not a bit grace- ful. They're ugly." Miss Merrill takes her new second career in stride. She's energetic, disciplined and used to hard work and still wants to devote much of her time to acting. Although her family has wealth, her parents insisted that as a young girl she master shorthand and typing. "Then you can always earn a living if you have said her practical mother. So she learn- ed the tools of a secretarial job although she hated the idea. .As a drama student at the American Academy of Drama- tic Arts she supported herself and paid her tuition by working as a fashion model. And her latest prized achievement is her newfound cooking ability. "Cliff taught she said. "1 need cookbooks still, but I've learned to improvise."
