Moira Shearer, the beauti ful and talented ballerina of “The Red Shoes,” confided to me some time ago that her tour with “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” was her swan song as far as the ballet was concerned, although she had not yet made a formal an nouncement. “I am not retiring from the theater," she explained. “I enjoy making pictures and hope to continue, but the bal let is too demanding now that I have a family. After my baby was born, I found that in order to get back to where I left off, I’d have to work strenuously for six months. The ballet requires tremen dous control, discipline and and concentration and I no longer desire that kind of dedication," Moira told me in her suite at the Ambassador Hotel. "Ballet dancers look fragile but they have to train like boxers—and have the same kind of stamina. "We eat energy foods like tarter steak, the yolks of raw eggs and lots of honey. A few hours before going on stage I always drink the yolks of two eggs mixed with honey and lemon.” Moira was wearing a soft blue dressing gown which tied around her tiny waist. What does your waist meas ure?” I asked her. "Twenty-two inches—with out lacing.” she replied. "I think having good firm mucles made it easier for me to get back in shape after the baby came. Ballet is a won derful body conditioner. I recommend it for anyone who leads a sedentary life. Besides being wonderful exercise, it de velopes grace.” Moria gave me her favorite exercise for keeping her waist line trim when she isn’t danc ing. Here it is just as she dem onstrated it for me. Sit on the floor close enough to a wall so that you can rest the soles of your feet against it, making a 45-degree angle with legs straight. Now try to lie down, lowering your spine to the floor slowly—one vetrebra at a time. The idea is to get your back flat against the floor without removing your feet from the wall. As you go down, stretch your arms above your head. This helps to release spinal tension. % Even Moria agreed that this is not an easy exercise and it will require working with be fore you can do it to a steady rhythm but its benefits are three-fold. It reduces the waist, flattens the stomach and helps you to relax. Better Dressed Moria has traveled many times across our continent and observed Americans in every section of the country. She has a great admiration for the fashion sense of the American women and admits that we are much better dressed than the Europeans. “Even the women on limited budgets manage to look smart,” Moria said, "but I find that in following fashion they seem to have sacrificed individuality. I’m constantly impressed how much alike the American women seem to look. Person ally, I’m more concerned with being different than in vogue. “It’s very easy to fall into a rut about ciothes and let others dictate what you should wear but remember that the fashion designers may not be designing for your particular type of figure. Be objective and critical and choose your clothes with discrimination. It isn’t always easy to be honest about your self but if you are to achieve anything, whether it is success in your career or your personal Ip?

Moria places a sense of humor high on her list of beauty requisites. “The expression on a woman’s face is equally as im portant as the shape of the features. If you can laugh at yourself and treat trouble in the right perspective, you won’t tear yourself down with worry." Beautiful Hair Moria has the most beautiful red hair I’ve ever seen. ever gives me credit for being a natural redhead,” Moria complained. “I do my hair myself once a week. I think the right sham poo makes such a difference, especially with hair as dry as mine.” she added, suggesting that women try different brands. Moria has a typical English complexion—clear and smooth and fresh looking. “The climate In England makes for good skin. It’s cold over there and we are used to chilly rooms. It was difficult for me to get used to the awful central heating in the hotels here. I think the hot, dry air that you are used to in your homes is drying. “With the highly heated Miss Holton To Be Wed Mr. and Mrs. Samuel M. Holton of Louisburg, N.

Midship man Winters is a graduate of Duke University and is attend ing the United States Naval Academy. rooms in winter and the sum mer sun, I don’t wonder that your women complain about dry skin so much,” was Moria’s sage observation. Moria also had some definite Ideas about make-up. “It has to look natural or it is wrong," she said. “Too many American women, I think, wear too much make-up. Borne seem to think that unless you are overly made-up, you are not properly made-up. I can’t agree with this.” Need Exercise? Moria is right when she stresses the importance of regular exercise. Try her routine, if you like.
