Dear Martha Foster: I’m not such an old-fashioned biddy as to believe that the standards of our Puritan forebears can be held up as a way of life in this hardboiled age, but it frightens me sometimes to see the cynical disregard for morals and discipline that marks the attitude of our young people today.
Dear Martha: Surely you can’t be talking about what we now call the Greatest Generation. Sincerely, Mr. Baby Boomer.
Louella Parsons says: I don’t wonder William Goetz is eager to get Loretta Young started before the cameras. She looks so wonderful since the birth of her baby, and so radiant. He has decided to co-star her with Gary Cooper in Gary’s first independent production, a western, tentatively titled “The American Cowboy.” It’s laid in 1885 and will give Loretta a chance to wear the costumes of that period.
VIRGO: Improved conditions exist. Check carefully before you move to avoid errors, then proceed with assurance. Think and act logically.
