As I recall, in the early 1960s similar signals were supposedly being sent by guys depenfing on which, if either, nack trouser pocket[s] had the button open or closed.
And I am not about to explain the original purpose of [red] lipstick.

Does anyone remember if the "Predator",had a bow under that enclosure?

Aren't bow worn on the top (out to get a man) and bow worn on the left side (signal & challenge) basically the same thing, except the top-bow is more flat-out predatory and the left-bow is more coy: "I'm hot stuff & totally taken, but show me what you got"? The really crafty one is old Betty Dupree - I bet she made out better than any of them, whichever team she batted for. Becky Brown is doomed.
I wonder if 50% of girls in 1944 were named Betty.

So are "going steady" and "deeply in love" distinct states? Or would one wear a bow on both sides if she's deeply in love with the person she's going steady with? These are important questions

How did LIFE magazine manage to scoop the Feminist Manifesto in 1944?!
