Humor apprehension department

By way of obit, Gawker pointed to this Frank Kelly Freas cartoon from a 1950s MAD.

The Vogue and Esquire columns invite a straight reading, but I really don't get the Astounding column. Sci-fi rags propose the ideal woman as a bespectacled spinster scientist, but in fact sci-fi rags are read by hot young babe scientists? Is this from some alternate 1950s I have not yet heard about?
