"DON'T PURSUE BEAUTY WITH COSMETICS;,
ARTIFICIALITY AND BEAUTY ENEMIES"
Los Angeles, Oct 29. Condemn
ing the use of rouge and powder and
advocating the doctrine -of joy as a
stimulant to personal beauty, is the
doctrine of Marguerite Courteaux,
prize beauty of the South.
Miss Courteaux holds the beauty
prize of Georgia, chosen--for ..that,.
honor by the famous beauty expert,
She was also declared- the 'most
beautiful girl in Florida'by Governor
Jennings of that state.
"Women' pursue personal beauty
In the wrong way," said "Miss .Courr
teaux "They try to stimulate or
heighten their appearance by rouge,
powder and .other cosmetics. Where
as they should secure- 'harmonious,
artistic environments and then stim
ulate their heauty by joyous living
and artistic activities. Classic danc
ing will develop a spirited beauty that
indolent women never secure.
"Personal beauty cannot flourish
either in' inharmonious surroundings
or in cheap clothes. The woman who
desires to enhance her appearance
should clothe her body Jn wonderf ul
clothes;- but sho'uldalways adapt their
style -to -her--own '-personality. J3h
