American Girl (December 1961) "Countdown for Cindy"

The December 1961 issue of American Girl was about women in space. Here is the 3rd "space" article from the issue, an excerpt from the upcoming book: "Countdown for Cindy".

"I have it on good authority that the world's first moon nurse is a faithful user of Perma-perf, our sponsor's own all-purpose galactic scent, that out-of-this-world perfume..."
 "It's not going to be easy. The first woman to invade any field that has been exclusively male has a lot to prove."
 "Are women going to take over space flight and leave men behind in the kitchens and nurseries?"
