WE, THE WOMEN Men Can't Be Scared Into Girdles By RUTH MILLETT The Los Angeles pantie-and bra maker who came out with the posi tive statement that American men “probably have the worst posture in the world’’ and should, there fore, take to wearing girdles, had three strikes against her at the start. Strike one: Men don’t worry about their appearance enough to take any drastic measures tor im provement. Women are doubtful enough of their natural charms to suffer in the name of beauty—but not men. A man can lose all his hair with less fuss than a woman makes over a few' gray hairs she can dye any day she takes the no tion. Strike two: Men haven’t worn en’s simple faith in beauty mir acles. A fat woman will squeeze herself into a too-tight g.rdle. and go forth convinced she has achiev ed the streamlined figure nothing but drastic dieting could produce. Men haven't that childlike faith. Strike three: A professor has already convinced fat men that they make the best husbands, and advised women that if they want to marry a man who is home-lov ing, good-natured and easy to live with they had better pick a but ter-ball. So there's not the slightest chance that men will be sold on the ad vantages of the two-way stretch. If that girdle-maker wants to increase her market, she'll just have to scare more women into girdles. Men don't scare so easily.
