Smart, Cleveland club woman; Mrs.
C. B. Bryan of Memphis, a Southern
social leader, and Mrs. Anne Cum-
M"ns Frye, a Boston writer.
Mere is Miss Fonda's interview
with the "homeliest man."
BY GERTRUDE FONDA
Senator Dan Landon was intrc
t duced to me as the "homeliest man"
in. Seattle, He admitted, laughingly;
that he deserved the distinction.
I saw, and shook hands with, a big
man, somewhat loosely built, but giv
ing withal a suggestion of power. My
hand seemed swallowed up in his big
palm. He gave me a quick.hearty
hand-shake and let go. It was the
hand-shake of a man of decision.
. He could have crushed and broken
my hand with ease; but his grip was
gently firm. He laughed as he greet
ed me, and I knew by his hand-shake,
his smiling mouth and his eyes,
which went almost shut, when he
laughed, that he was a kindly man
who found much pleasure In life and
who would not use his power cruelly.
Why do women like "homely"
I do not know why. I only know,
that we do.
When I analyzed Senator Landon's
face I had to admit that not a single
feature stood the artistic test. The
'mouth is much too large, the jaw too
heavy. There is hardly any regular-'
ity in the other features, and the
whole is crowned by a ridiculous
shock of short, stubborn hair, which
evidently, no amount of brushing and
combing will put in order.
The senator's broad shoulders are
hunched. His arms and legs are too
The features, I say, will not stand
But the ensemble is fine!
I cannot tell you why it is fine, but
I know that most women like and ad
mire the Dan Landon type of men.
Few women aspire to marry hand
some men. We like them big, strong,
healthy, hrainy, gentle, masterful,
protective, loving and "homely."
