FIVE is a very early age to make ... nevertheless this was about the time a little girl called Cherry donned her dancing shoes with a determination that, come tired feet or opposing parents, they were there to stay! "1 always wanted to dance and sing," says lovely Cherry Gillespie, at just nineteen, the latest and youngest addition to the brilliant Pan's People dancers. "From a very early age I took tap and ballet lessons." Still,. this didn't mean that Cherry tapped and pas-de-deux'd her childhood away entirely. "My parents made sure I took a normal education - by normal I mean C?nvent School and Boarding . School - so it was up to me to follow the thing I was really interested in." And follow she did ... then, at thirteen, Cherry joined the Bush Davis School of Dancing at East Grinstead, where she studied each and every aspect of dance until she left at seventeen to live in London. "I knew I really needed to move to London if 1 was going to get anywhere. Luckily, my parents were marvellous - they let me go without question because they knew they couId trust me." Cherry, who had won leading roles such as Swanhilda in Coppelia at dance school, found her' original instincts led her towards ballet. "So I auditioned for the Festival Ballet - although I was told 1 was too small. Later they did ask if I would come back again because they wanted another look, but things had moved so fast. "As it happened, I was in my flat just four days when a friend asked me if I was going along to the Pan's People audition. Well, you know, I'd been thinking about the Young Generation maybe, but this ... Well, everyone said, 'Go on, Cherry - at least the audition experience will be good for you' .... so 1 did ... and no one was more surprised than I when I got it!"
big decisions about your future

'4
And since Cherry had had no professional experience, it was a fantastic achievement. Whicb just goes to show that constant practice and determination can win through. Although the Pan's People dancing routines are the brainchild of choreographer Flick Colby -every girl has to put her all into the act. Otherwise it just wouldn't work with the verve' and slickness that it does. And, of course, practice makes perfect ...

"At the moment, we're working seven days a week," says Cherry. "But obviously it depends how many shows we've doing at one time. "Usually we start at 10 or 11 and go right through to 5.30 or six." An ultra-busy, even restricted life though it seems, Cherry didn't sound as if she'd give it up for the world. "I love it - absolutely love it," she szys. But what are the chances of just any enthusiasticdisco ... dweller becoming a professional dancer? "1 know that not every girl could be as lucky as me. Not every girl has parents who couId pay for her tap and ballet lessons. Not every girl has the advantage of dance school training. But you know there are ways ... "It depends where you live really - obviously. London is the best place . ... there's the Dance Centre in Floral Street - they constantly hold auditions, which gives everyone a chance - and you can study everything there. "And there are always grants obtainable if parents can't pay. It's really always a matter of determination. "There's a lot of glamour attached to my sort of job - and it is glamorous when you're meeting exciting people and things. "But girls should know the dismal side too. The long, long hours in dirty, dusty rehearsal rooms ..The knowledge that you've always got to be your best ... it's mentally as well as physically exhausting. "For my part-I love every minute of it. But 1 would say that it's best for every girl who's keen on dancing to think sensibly-always have something to fall back on. Take your education seriously-get your exams in case the worst should happen. And above all-work at it." But Cherry knows that if you're as devoted as she is-you'll never call it "work"!

BIG SURPRISE Recently, my boyfriend came struggling up the garden path carrying a great big parcel, for me! As soon as he gave it to me I started to open it There was layer upon layer of paper wrapping and I was convinced that it was' a prac tical joke and that eventually I'd find a piece of coal or a smelly old sock.

Next Week: Sugar -the

What does the word "love" really mean to you? One thing's for sure - it's a word we all use so often that it's become habitforming. How many times have you said; "Oh, I just love that dress," or, "I love chocolate cake," or, "I love that new record," etc. Love comes in all colours and relates to almost anything. But what we're zeroing in on now is love, between people - meaning you. and that certain boy who causes your t;,eart to miss a bea t, your eyes to shine and your fingernails to be bitten. Is it love you really feel - or are those overwheLming sensations just signs of a crush, something ttlat will pass away in time? It's the easiest thing in the world to say you love. someone - almost too easy - but to really and truly love takes a great deal of strength, courage, tenderness, understanding and responsibility.

That Certain

Feeling

Of course, love must begin with a feeling - and what awakens this feeling only you and you alone know. Usually~it's something physical, something in the way he looks.. smiles, walks, looks at you. Suddenly - and it's often sudden - you feel somehow "in tune" with him and everything else in the .. world is blotted out for a moment except him. "I love him," you say to yourself, "and I'll never, ever, love anyone else." But, really, that's just the .beginning. The real test is just starting.For in the beginning you tend to see just what you want to see and 'nothing else. However, the testing goes on and on. If it's to last, the next and most important thing you must say to yourself is, "I accept him completely - faults, and 'all." If you can say this sincerely and completely without any doubts - then you'r well on your way to passing the first hurdle. This is the stage when

and there must be something more solid, more lasting and real underneath - and that's what liking is aU about. For it's from liking that real love begins to grow, when you begin to feel comfortable and relaxed, can laugh easily and naturally, can look good and not-so-good at times . and it doesn't matter. It's when you can be eal friends, say almost anything and talk about your ups as well as your downs. It's really a hundred and one things - and more. It's when :you're open and free, and the fear of losing him has gone. Your beart may still miss a beat when he looks at you and your eyes are still shining, but funnily enough, your fingernails have begun to grow again: You're thinking now about ways to make him happy instead of worrying what he thinks of you, At this stage, you can be very certain' that what you feel is real and true, If you haven't got this far - if you're still dreaming and wishing and wanting him to notice you. and if you're miserable, depressed, tearful - then, sorry, what you feel just isn't love. It's a crush - a good old-fashioned crush.

A Two-Way Street ...
Sally helps you sort out those swift, fleeting fancies fram the kind oj deep and devoted
feelings which stay with you for the rest your life ...
That's what it is. It has to do with you and him. And when both your feelings are similar, then you've got a fondation to build upon. Love doesn't make you miserable. Love makes you feel happy and bubbly and gtad-to-be-ahve. Love is being unselfish and caring about someone more than you care about yourself - it's an allembracing emotion. It makes you want to share this feeling with others - to help them feel happy, too. It's such a great big beautiful thing - this love is - that no one nor anything can stop it. I hope aLL of you find it ne day.

of

you'll begin to see whether Or not that strong feeling you had was as strong and deep as you thought it was. , If you can't accept him if you find yourself thinking, "Oh, if only he were like this or that or otherwise, if he'd only dress better or cut his hair - if, if, if!" then you'd better stop for a moment and consider that the love you feel may not be for him at all but what you. want him to be. .

As Loving

liking As Well

Conquered this? Then you're ready for the next chat with yourself, and the question now is, "Do I like him?" Yes, that's right, Uke him. I don't mean just liking to do the same things, but really liking him as another human being. Tbat first rush of intense feeling can't last forever,

the Army needs you most. At first, this will ptobablybesomewhereinBritain. Later it could b Germany, Cyprus or Hong Kong. But this would depend on your job, for they don't all take you abroad. There are over '20 worthwhile and in teresting jobs to choose from. Like being a radar

op rater, an administration clerk or switchboard op rater. You'll find the work fairly hard, but varied. Not only because you'll be in new towns or foreign countries, but because it isn't dull or repetitive. And as you get on, you'll gain more confidence in yourself: find many new hobbies and make a lot of lively friends. Wherever you go with the WRAC, you'll be a key part of the New Army. You'll find the officers and NCO's friendly and approachable, always ready to help or advise. You'll live in comfortable rooms, usually sharing with three other girls. Most servicewomen work normal hours. So you'll be free to enjoy yourself on most evenings and weekends. By finding new hobbies and making a lot oflive1y friends. At a dance. In your own clu b. Or by using the Army's many sports facilities. Of cours , ther 's still discipline in the ew rmy. But the rules are the kind that h lp you do a worthwhile job well. And although you'll learn to march, you'll find that parades are normally kept just for ceremonials. By joining the New Army, you're not signing your life away. You can leave after three years, if you give us ,8 months notice. Or as soon as you marry. Starting pay is a generous £ 19. 18 a w ek if you're I 7-k or over. And if you work hard and do well, it rises steadily. Shouldn't you find out more by sending us the coupon?

Hannah hatches her latest plot

to get Nina arrestedl
annah Brill's wealthy father was working abroa.d and Hannah had moved in with Nina Todd. Ufe for Nina was pretty miserable because Hannah never tired of playing the dirtiest tricks. The two girls, who were at Drama School, had got holiday jobs in Garry's Stores. fIIow, a friend there had been sacked, and the gi rts were feel in9 rebell ious ...

IF you can get hold of the elusive Cozy Powell, then you're lucky ... because be's been so busy in the burly rush of top-ten hits that time has become his only enemy. . "Last week, I did twelve interviews in one day," Cozy grinned. And I felt a tiny inkling of guilt as I sat fingering my notebook loaded with questions. Still, curiosity winning over guilt, I swiftly asked him how it felt to have the fi.rst drumming top ten hit for fitte.en years ... "Great! At last I'm getting full credit for what I'm doing, and I don't mean that in a big-headed way. You see, I've been in the business for quite a long time, and although I've been in various bands I'm basically a session musician. I've played on many different artistes' records, including Hot Chocolate, Donovan and Peter Sarsted." But, y'know; we're very lucky to have ever heard the talents ,of our COZy on such gems as "Dance With The Devil," 'cos it seems there's another love in his life. He explained: "I just love a

speedy life in every form of sport, and if I hadn't been a drummer, I'd certainly have ' been a racing driver." So yOU see, COzy certainly isn't the sort of fella to sit around twiddling his drum: sticks. "I can't sit still for a minute. If I'm not drumming, I'm zooming around the sports. scene. I love water and snow skiing, football and riding. I'm a country lad at heart. I feel all closed in living in the town." Still our Cozy'lI always find time for girls too! "But," he says, "I'm getting a bit fed up with seeing all those EngliSh legs covered in jeans. I like girls one hundred percent female." And Cozy's sure not letting success go to his head. Although, like all of us, he's got dreams for the future .... "Of course, I'll just see what turns up. But my favourite dream is that I'll make enough money to be able to retire . . . to motor racing." But please, Cozy, don't retire too soon - we've kinda grown accustomed to the sound of your drums ...

Hi! We're aU looking forward to lots of Spring sunshine (and madly digging out our sun specs!) - s? if you're h_aving troubles shaking off those unnter Looks,Just wnte to me, Valli. Must make the most of the bright 'n' bre~zy season,mustn't we?
water-proof mascara but I just can't get it off at night without really scrubbing at it and even then it doesn't all come off. Should I use something special? Lynn, Sussex. Dear Lynn, Yes, waterproof mascara generaLly needs an oily cleanser to remove it. Try using cotton wooL soaked in baby oil or eye make-up remover pads like those by Almay, Boots .17 or Quickies. It may aLso be a good idea to check to see if there's a special eye make-up cleanser in the brand of make-up that you are using. If there is then this would pmbably be the best one ·UJ use.
WON'T BUDGE! Dear Valli, I've been using a

anything that is very expensive. Could you suggest a cheap, but nice smelling perfume that I could try? Jennifer, Halifax. Dear Jennifer, Eastern Oils are very popular at the moment and 7IWst of them are pretty cheap too! We' especially like the ones made by Max Factor, called Wild Musk Florals. There's the ordinary Wild Musk or the flqrals come in fragrances Uke Heather Jasmine, Lilac, Rose and Lavender. The range starts from 8Op. Dear Valli, A few wiys after I've plucked my ~yebrows these awful blaCK bits appear. They look like blackheads, but they are not. What should I dn? Janet, Tunbriclge Wells. Dear Janet, You obviously aren't tweezing your eyeOrowstheright way. Instead of pulling out the whole eyebrow hair you are breaking it off at the root. . Before you start tweezing them put two squares oj damp cotton wool, or dab a little bit oj cream over your brows. This wiLl help those stubborn hairs to come out more easily. Then tweeze them out, one at a time, gripping each hair firmly at the root ,and pulling it out in the direction of growth. Don't forget, just tweeze away unwanted hair from below the brow - NEVER above. After tweezing, take away any redness by dabbing your eyebrows with cold water or skin freshener.
EYEBROW BLUES

HAIRY Dear Valli, Help! I've got very hairy arms; I feel like an ape sometimes, because they look so awful. Should I shave them? Dear Jane, No! Please don't . shave them. If you do they will grow back an ~tubbly, and that'll look even worse than hairy arms! The best thing to do is to use a hair lightener on them like Inecto's Cream Bleach, so they are light in colour and won't be so noticeable. FRINGE FActS Dear Valli, I'm trying to grow out my fringe, but my mum says, I'll have to have it cut if it keeps getting in my eyes. I don't want to do that but how can I keep it out of the way? Gillian, Herts. Dear Gillian, You can- keep your hair hack with an alice band, or why not buy yourself a few pretty hair slides? (Boots, Peter Robinson and most large stores have wide selections.)

Use these to keep your hair out of the way while it is going through this awkward growing oui stage. You can either make a side parting and just pin your fringe to the side with one sUde, or make a centre parting and matching sUdes. TONE-UP TIME! Dear Valli, I've recently put on weight around my hips and bottom. Can you suggest anything to help me get back into shape? Dawn, Lewisham. Dear Dawn, You've probably just been sLacking on e.xercise recentLy. It's surprising just how much difference this can make! Why not do a couple of toning up exercises? Such as: lie on your back, raise your legs up and pedal-push 50 times in the ail'. 01', trY walking on your bottom" your Legs straight out in front Of you - this 'U work wenden at demo"lishing that flab!

Give yours a spring-clean - the real scrub-up, face-pack treatmentl This is an important time for your skin - it needs care. Constantly it's been in and out of hot and cold temperatures - out in chilly, bitter winds then into warm, often stuffy rooms. For dry to normal skins try a treatment like Boots Orange Blossom Face Pack. Greasy skins can invest In Lem-Pak. And always give skin an after-cleansing splash with cold water to close up lazy pores. Now, you want a sudden, natural transformation for your skin. If your complexion is clear - be bold and don't wear any foundation! Otherwise, choose Mary Quant Jellyl:labies or Almay's Near Nude - both give a light, smooth look. Hazel blushes give a gentle, sunnyfe~ to cheeks. Try Rimmel's Tawny Transfuscent Blush, Outdoor Girl's Tawny Glow On in Dry Corn

Now that you've stripped off all those winter woollies, try taking a cold shower ... ooooh, it may sound drastic, but it does wonders for bringing your skin to life! Next, soak yourself in a warm bath, filled with Radox Herbal or Boots 17'9 Fruity Essences, to soften you up all over. Okay, it's time to get out now and rub in some body lotion.

A change of style would never look better! Maybe you're getting a bit tired of that out-grown bob? Why not wear your hair away from your face - take it up in two pretty bunches.

FRIGHTENED Dear Sally, I just cannot get to sleep at night As soonas I get into bed, I just lie there and feel frightened about nothing. Please, would you suggest something. I'm 11. Barbara, Kent.
Dear Barbara, [remember when I was about your age, I experienced the same thing on occasions. And what I did was to switch on the light and read or listen to the radio until 1 became so sleepy I jnst couldn't keep my eyes open. I don't recall when this frightened feeUng left me, but it did, anq, 1 haven!t experienced it far many years (well, not that many). Fear can come from many sources, and 1 don't know where yours comes from. But I do know that it's not an uncommon feeling for girls around your age. One of the deepeT reasons may be that it's a kind of fear 01 growing up. Be/ore this time, you were a little girl, content to play, eat, go to school, sleep, etc. Slowly, now, changes are beginning to take ptace wtthinyou as preparation for the next stage of development. When you get into bed at night and everything is still, you're suddenly 71Wreaware of yourseLf than ever before, as if sensing these changes. So a kind of feaT of the unknown creeps in. Just know,. Barbara, that you're really and truLy all right inside - more than all right, reaUy. You're growing up, and it's as simple as that.
