What is the name of the short story about an attractive, smart teenage girl living on an asteroid with her asteroid-miner parents? They pay a special doctor to make the girl less intelligent and less attractive, to suppress her desire to leave the asteroid and go to college. Early to mid-fifties.
It's set on the planet Deneb and the girl is Avis Emery.
Dr. Kalmar went to his office and had his nurse, Miss Dupont, send in the first patient. It was a girl of 17, Avis Emery, who had been brought by her parents. She sat sullenly, dark-haired, too daintily pretty and delicately shapely for a frontier world like this, while Mr. Emery put the file from Social Control on the doctor's desk.
"We're farmers--" the man began.
Dr. Kalmar interrupted, "The information is in the summary. Avis is to be assigned her mate next year, but she wants to go to Earth and become a nightclub singer. She refuses to marry a boy who'd be able to help around the farm, and she won't work on it herself." He looked up severely at the parents. "This is your own fault, you know. You pampered her. Farm labor is too valuable for pampering. We can't afford it.
