In view of our Government’s continuing interest in the physical fitness of the nation’s youth, we have elected to submit October Playmate Allison Parkss as pictorial proof of what frequent doses of sunshine, fresh air and physical exercise can do for the shape of future generations. A blue-eyed brunette from Glendale, California, 21-year-old Allison Parks spent her weekday mornings soaking up the sun’s first healthful rays while assisting her father in the care and cultivation of his ranch-size floral nursery in nearby Sun Valley. Then it was back to her Glendale homestead for our opulently endowed October Miss, where she conducted an afternoon enterprise of her own: teaching preschool-age children to swim in the family’s big backyard pool. Allison also expanded her off-hours interests to include flying. Each weekend, weather permitting, Allison joined a local group of fellow aerial enthusiasts, the Sky Roamers, and logged in a few more air hours toward her private pilot’s license. “Until I started flying, my big dream was to own a hot sports car someday,” reports the attractive amateur aviatrix. “Now, I couldn’t care less about cars — except as the quickest means of getting to and from the airstrip.” Fortunately, Miss October allowed herself to be grounded long enough for our alert lensman to capture October 1965’s Playmate pose for posterity.
