times were all behind her, when tragedy
suddenly struck. The death of David
Linder, her husband of 34 years and life-
long supporter, left Mira Linder alone for
the first time since leaving Siberia.
Some women would have given up
on life. But Linder wasn't ready for that
"When I was a young girl I always
thought that when I got older, when I
reached 60, I could just relax. I could
stop working and rest.
"But as I grew older, I realized there
weren't any changes in my lifestyle or
the way I felt. I was still very active in
both my business and my social life.
And I realized that life doesn't have to
end at 60."
Rather than resign herself to the
loneliness of widowhood, she threw
herself head-first into her social life, and
two years later she married her'second
husband, Dr. Arthur Victor.
Beauty Begins at 60 is Linder's
message to women her age that the
best years are still ahead of them.

years. We've established ourselves. We
don't have to worry anymore about
money and material things. We can en-
joy ourselves and really live."

the other celebrities who are over 60:
Jacqueline Onassis, Barbara Bush,
Queen Elizabeth, Lauren Bacall,
Katherine Hepburn, Bess Myerson,
Shirley Temple Black, Frances Lear and
even Minnie Mouse — all living life to
They know the secret that Linder
learned in the Siberian work camps. It
is the secret that she is now passing on
to "the generation of the first truly
liberated women with money."
"I don't have 'no' in my vocabulary,"
she says. "Anything is possible."
Colorings for the earliest Scottish tar-
tans were derived from dyes native to
the country. Tartan green came from
gorse bark and brown knapweed; tar-
tan red came from the lichen that grows
on rocks: yellow was produced from
bracken and heather, while blue, came
from bilberries, alum, and moss.
