UPI Staff Writer
NEW YORK (UPI1 I slo-iped
washing the dishes long enough, to
watch Thursday's CBS-TV day
time special that one that
asked, -"is The American Womai
Losing Her Femininity?"
This program, second In a
series titled "Womai!." dabbled
for an hour with that needless
question, repeating itself with
great persistence and very little
I say the question is needless
because this is, after all. the land
where a gal like Marilyn Monroe
embrotlies . femininity on-camera
and worries about the tax bite olf
camera. Or where a gul like
Esther Williams can rise out of
a swimming pool to become heaJ
of a large manufacturing corpora
tion. By sheer coincidence. Miss
Williams was the hostess on
Thursday's show: the feminine
portion of her, that is. "'
The question, "Is The American
Woman Losing Her Etc?" seemed
to be borrowed from the high cal
orie Sunday afternoon TV "pvens.
but the presentation was sauteed,
buttered and sugar-coated to meet
tastes that are presumed to be
As. a result, the needed spice
was lacking. Nothing happened to
perk up our senses. Because the
answer was so obvious from the
start, we were left with a curious
ly ineffective, almost vacuous pro
gram. A repetitious, hash of brief
filmed interviews and carefully
prepared . "ad lib" discussions
didn't help. And there was no hu
mor. Maybe that should be an
other - topic some day: "Is The
American Woman Losing Her
Sense of Humor?" . .
.The aimlessness of the program
was exemplified by Miss Wil
liams' summation. It seems' the
question about loss of femininity
can be answered yes and no. Yes,
if you mean in terms of Victorian
era concepts; no, if you mean
