tt-THE LBTHtRlDOl October 1IT4 Beauty queen 'young' at 82 PRAGUE (AP) In 1919, when a Czech beauty queen was chosen there was no parading in front of judges clad in a bikini. A newspaper had asked girls between ages 18 and 25, "virtuous and with a spotless send in their photos. Ruzena-Brozova, the title that year and went on to become queen of beauty in Paris, has no idea what her vital statistics were. "I was very, she recalled, and added that jury members guffawed when some fathers' sent in the bust measure- ments of their daughters. Now 82, the former beauty queen, her white hair bobbed and gently styled, could easily be taken for 60. Asked what she did to keep such a youth- ful appearance she said: "I always liked to sleep. I was stiver an athletic girl but I take a cold wash every mor-, ning. I never used cream or cosmetics when not on the stage, just washed with household, soap. As for lip; stick, my mother, would i was invited to Lent festivities at queen of queens and a queen of beauty were traditionally elected. Her trip to .Paris was. or-- ganized by the first Czech travel 'agency in France'but Prague city fathers refused to provide her with royal clothes. Ruzena, child of poor actors, had only a modest wardrobe. It was her idea to appear m a- Czech national f peasant costume. The Parisian queen of queens was chosen from 20 queens elected in the various Paris districts and a foreign beauty was Invited each year. The title of queen of beauty in- variably went to the Parisian. beauty popuhTrity took by sur- prise even the police, who had to check the huge crowds Which dogged her every step. A long-standing tradition was broken when she was elected the queen of beauty T over the "Parisian queen of Elisa Gaillard, who .kissed Ruzena's cheek'after the results of the voting by 600 guests were announced. At 26 she married Antonin Opravil, a professional sol- dier. Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: My hus- band and I are both in our 60s and we have been married for 36 years. I know he has never been interested in another woman until now. A-few months ago, he started a new job: He has been going to lunch nearly every day with his secretary, who is in her 30s. He told me about it himself, making a big deal out of the fact that they go Dutch. I don't give a damn who 'pays, but I find it upsetting that he is lunching with a woman half his age. He says it is just a convenience, that he really doesn't enjoy it, but I notice they don't go to the neighborhood cof f eeshop. Every few days they try an interesting new place. He can't understand why I am Sears Save 20 O Simpsons-Sears Ltd. perturbed. I cry myself to sleep at night (quietly, so he won't hear me) and sometimes I cry during the day, around lunchtime. I've offered him his freedom and he tells me I'm crazy. Am I? Is. he? Har- pooned Dear H.: In the absence of -any solid evidence, I think you'd be wise to stop making accusations. He may be com- pletely innocent But if you con- tinue to badger him, he might get ideas. My own hunch is there's nothing going on but lunch and a little flattering of the ego. One of these days, a waitress is bound to ask, "And what will your daughter and that'll kill his appetite for lunching out. Dear 'Ann Landers: Is something wrong with me? I'm 24, married five years and teach school. I don't mind housework but I see no point in doing things in .the conven- tional manner; For example: I don't press my towels, bed sheets and pillow cases and stack them neatly in the linen closet. I just fold them and figure the wrinkles will fall out when I put the linen on the bed and the towels on the rack. When I hang shirts on the line, I use one clothespin instead of two. It doesn't look very fancy, but .who cares? Some of my friends have in- timated that I'm not a good housekeeper. Would you call me lazy or efficient? I'll Take Your Word For It Dear Word: It's your home and you can do as you pleae 'but since you asked for my I'll give it. Any. woman who won't take the time to press her bedsheets and pillowcases and stack them in reasonably orderly fashion has got to be a little lazy. Some towels may look O.K. just folded, but we iron ours. As for hanging a shirt with one clothespin, that's more than, lazy, honey, it's stupid. A good wind comes along and your shirts stand only half as good a chance of staying up as if you had used two clothespins. CAREERS CATELLILTD. PRODUCTION WORKERS Male or Female tor shift work.
