Reynolds' remarks anger Hispanics Hispanic leaders mounted a nationwide campaign against actress Debbie Reynolds on Thursday, saying they're outraged by comments she made. The controversy arose when Reynolds, keynote speaker at a Fresno, Calif., women's conference last month, was asked what advice she had for Hispanic women. "I believe there's a lot of work in domestic work that enables you to make a good salary," Reynolds said. "There's a lot of homes that are owned by wealthy people, you know, that do employ people."

She came with her dog. When we were clearing the dishes off the table, she took a plate with some leftovers, set it on the floor, and let her dog clean the plate. I was appalled! When we had pets, they had their own dishes. I hate going to her house for dinner because I know that every dish and bowl has been licked by her dog. She has no dishwasher. How would your readers react? NAME WITHHELD DEAR NAME WITHHELD: Have I got an idea for an ideal house gift for you to give your sister-in-law! Buy a couple of dog dishes especially for her dog. You can order some with the dog's name on them so there is no mistaking what they are for. DEAR ABBY: Thank you for many years of sensible, down-to-earth answers to problems that may or may not have entered my life they were enlightening anyway. Now for my silly problem. My husband and I (70ish) recently took it Abby Van Buren a trip in our RV and stopped at a favorite restaurant in Pennsylvania that serves "family style." In other words, platters of food are on the table for all to share. Upon leaving, I visited the ladies room, and since the woman attendant was bustling around the lavatories, I skipped washing my hands, intending to do so in the RV. I was shocked when the attendant stopped me and asked if I was entering the dining room. I said, "No, I'm leaving." It was very embarrassing, to say the least. I've heard of "potty parity" what is this? "Potty police"? RED-FACED DEAR RED-FACED: I've never heard of it, but the attendant must be a mother. And once a mother, always a mother.

In the other ring: "Daughters Who Followed Their Mothers Into the Pornography Field." These were the acts Cincinnati-ans saw Friday when TV talk show host Sally Jessy Raphael brought her show to town. Approximately 2,200 people with tickets filed into the roped-off, makeshift arena of folding chairs. An additional 1,000 people without tickets circled the railings at Forest Fair Mall for two tapings of the syndicated talk show, which airs in 191 markets nationally. The show also is seen in the United Kingdom, Canada, Saudi Arabia and Bophuthatswana. Locally, it airs 4 p.m. weekdays on Channel 5. Though the taping of the first show didn't begin until 11:05 a.m., some audience members, such as Deana Marlow, of Hamilton, began lining up as early as 8 a.m. "I've been here four hours already," said Marlow, still brim-' ming with anticipation. "I think she's worth it. She's my favorite talk show host of all, because she's so sincere."

"We got lucky," said Chris, a senior at Fairfield High School. "School was out today. "I watch talk shows whenever I get the chance. I tend to prefer the strange or weird stuff to the more serious topics. Ya know, stuff like the sex lives of three-headed women . . ." Wrong show. Sounds more like fodder for Sally's colleague, Geral-do. The opening act at both tapings was Rob Reider, former resident red-framed spectacles, her eight children and the bed-and-breakfast inn she owns in Erwinna, Pa. "I've been listening to her for years and years on the radio," said Marie Petricola of Colerain Township. "It's like having an old friend come to visit." The two Cincinnati-taped shows will air Oct. 21-22. On Thursday, Raphael also taped a segment for the Jerry Springer Show, which will air Monday. Both shows, along with Donahue, are distributed by Multimedia. singer for the Bob Braun Show, who sang an upbeat tune to warm up the patient audiences, which were predominately female. He was followed by the show's executive producer Burt Dubrow, who offered comical step-by-step instruction on delivering the best "tumultuous applause" and how to ask questions for the camera. Between takes, Raphael was swooped upon by her wardrobe stylist and make-up artist. Despite the constant fussing, she managed to schmooze with the audience about her trademark HELD OVER! I've begun reading men's magazines as part of a continuing effort to figure men out as well as pinpoint the exact spot in the galaxy from which they came. t- Anyway, to thank me for subscribing, Men's Health magazine sent a booklet: "Answers To Questions Men Ask Most." ' I read "What's My Kissing Missing?" "If you've wondered whether you're remembered or quickly forgotten because of your kisses, the results of our informal poll may help," it says. "We asked a handful of ladies to critique a Man's Kiss and suggest how it could be improved." I The booklet lists "worst offenders" and includes panelist comments: The G-Man: More tight-lipped than a federal bureaucrat, this guy is just about as exciting. "Lips should be loose when you kiss, slightly puckered so they are tender when they touch. Too many men clamp their lips together when they kiss." BThe Dentist: He's determined to use his tongue to examine your molars and then wipe your tonsils for good measure. A little tongue is nice, but not when it's rammed in like a snake. Use the tip of your tongue, which is the sexy part." J The Puppy: Like man's best friend, he's so excited that he slobbers all over you. Wet kisses are very sexy but not when you have to take a shower after them. This guy needs to slow down and save the lapping for Fido. " I The Dead Fish: He's the yin to The Puppy's yang, a man whose I SALE ABSOLUTELY ENDS SUNDAY 6 P.M. kiss has the muscle tone of a 98-pound weakling. "No pressure, no inspiration." The Oral Rapist: "He grinds your lips into your teeth, grabs everything he can get his hands on while you're unpleasantly distracted and bites hard." The main problem with men's kissing, women told Men's Health, is attitude. "Too many men consider kissing the appetizer they have to rush through to get to the main course. . . . Give us the guy who is involved with the act of caressing your skin with his lips." The women panelists told the magazine that their best sexual experiences were with men who took their time kissing them. Passion is a delicate balance between the Dead Fish and the Oral Rapist, women say. Add some tenderness and a little tongue without being a Puppy or a Dentist. Finally, the magazine says men should explore. Says one panelist: "A woman's lips are very erogenous, but so are her ears, neck, the insides of her forearms, the back of her knees." Comments? Ideas?

Warranty $499 $499 8 set $5995 $598 BY JANELLE GELFAND Enquirer Contributor r Guest conductor Christopher Seaman conjured up a spirited performance of Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique before a disappointingly small house (1,567) in the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra's Friday night performance at Music Hall. The British conductor replaced previously announced con-fluctor Jiri Kout, who was forced to pancel due to illness. The concert was a kaleidoscope of colors. The program began with Cincinnati-based composerconduc-lor Gerhard Samuel's Looking at prpheus Looking, a reflective piece inspired by Monteverdi's Or-feo. Samuel noted, "One must listen Jwith an open mind. It is a meditative piece, with a strong mood." yhe composition was an effective juxtaposition of old and new sounds, colors and layers of sound. iThe orchestra may be commended ior blending tones, particularly be-Jween organist Mark Schaeffer and Jhe strings. The color of the harpsichord lent an aura of the past; unfortunately, the amplification as unbalanced. The piece ended tonally with the memory of a fragment of Monteverdi. Hindemith's Symphonic Meta-Imorphosis on Themes by Carl Ma-ia von Weber was a bright spot on Country Sofa & Loveseat, Coil Base, 18 Fabric Choices ( Yv 'f mundane melodies. Seaman conducted the exuberant work with concise restraint. The Turandot Scherzo, with Oriental overtones, was enhanced by the articulate playing of flutist Randolph Bowman, besides some jazzy expression played by the brass. Symphony Fantastique concluded this lighthearted program. The strings' articulation was lacking, but they were shaken out of their reverie in the Ball, which Seaman conducted with great sweep. The Scene in the Country was conducted with tenderness by Seaman, and there was particularly fine expression in the woodwinds, especially oboist Richard Johnson. The moment the audience awaited, the March to the Scaffold, was suitably macabre; William Winstead's grotesque bassoon solo was effective against the cellists' pizzicato. Kudos to the brass for a compelling death knell (Dies Irae) in Dream of a Witches' Sabbath. The program repeats at 8:30 p.m. today.
