June 3, 1930: Applause for Buffalo man who spanked his wife for dyeing her hair

As Buffalo’s health commissioner moved to ban the “feminine craze” of hair dyeing in the city as a potential “poison to the system,” the instance of one man who spanked his wife after she went blonde was met with the question, “Did he get a medal?”

"Fronczak would keep girls’ hair natural by ordinance"

"Brunettes will not be able to become blondes and dissatisfied blondes will no longer be able to enhance their beauty with fanciful henna if recommendation of Health Commissioner Francis E. Fronczak made at Thursday's meeting of the Health board for an ordinance prohibiting the sale of hair dyes and also banning beauty parlors for dyeing hair is adopted."
