MRS. ALPHONSO RAGLAND
Pretty Betty Ragland, 28, a Dallas housewife who needs glasses for ordinary vision, has become one of the country's best in the exacting sport of skeet shooting. Betty married a skeet shooter four years ago, took up the sport to avoid becoming a "skeet widow." Her husband taught her so well that Betty tied for a national title only three months after she learned to fire a shotgun.
