Patrick--good point about the continuing existence of beauty contests for teens. But those modern affairs, I figure, pay some lip service at least to other talents and qualities for the contestants, rather than sheer physical attractiveness alone, which seemed to be the entire rationale for Lux.

A 19-year-old guy going steady with a 15-year-old girl seems a little off.

Go to any small-town parade on Thanksgiving, the Fourth of July or Memorial Day, and you’ll see plenty of “Little Miss” and “Miss Teen” beauty contest winners.
