Swain of 4 Easter Circle, was united in marriage on Sunday with Richard Wayne Bramlett, son of Mr. .and Mrs. Frank R. Bramlett of 3015 Lomond St., Winston-Salem. The couple reepeated their vows before the Rev. Thomas Madren. A background of wedding music was provided by Mrs. Lincoln Link, organist, and Miss Donna Beck, guitarist. Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a gown of ivory brocade, fashioned with a fitted bodice and scooped neckline accented with clusters of seed pearls. Her chapel-length train extended from a bow at the back. She added a full-length mantilla of re-embroidered ivory chantilly lace with pearl appli- ques, held by a Camelot cap, and she carried a cascade bouquet of gardenias, stephanotis and red roses. She also wore a strand of pearls, a gift from her bridegroom. Matron of honor was the bride's sister, Mrs. Steve Davis. Bridesmaids included Mrs. David VonCannon, Mrs. Paul Berthrong of King and Miss Alta Surratt. Flower girls were Amy and Sally Fulton of High Point, cousins of the bride. They wore gowns designed with green velvet bodices featuring scooped necklines and short sleeves. The skirts of multi- colored taffeta extended to floor-length. They added matching green bow headpieces with velvet streamers. The honor attendant carried two red mums tied with white velvet .streamers. Single red mums tied with white velvet ribbon were carried by the bridesmaids. The flower girls had white lace baskets filled with carnation petals. The bridegroom selected his brother-in-law, Gray Johnson of Winston-Salem, to serve as best man. Ushers were David Lewis of Durham, another brother-in- law of the bridegroom, Paul Nance of Burlington, the bridegroom's nephew, and Steve Davis, brother-in-law of the bride.

Her Eyesight Is Powerful BERLIN — Veronica Seider, 19-year-old West German university student from Stuttgart has eyesight 20 times more powerful than normal human beings. It's so SWEATER SWITCH 0 f f-the-shoulder sweaters that were popular during the summer can be teamed with long skirts or flowing pants for evening wear. powerful she can write the equivalent of a 10-page letter on the back of a postage stamp — and read it back. Recently she held a "demonstration" before a group of Stuttgart university professors. She cut out a piece of paper the exact size of her thumb nail. Then she wrote on it — neatly set out — 20 verses of a poem. And no magnifying glass. Her only worry — she's so long sighted she daren't look out of her window, has to keep it carefully curtained from the outside world. "Every time I looked out I saw scenes in houses I can only describe as embarrassing," she says. WITH COPY OF THIS ADVERTISEMENT WITH COPY OF THIS ADVERTISEMENT 1/2 OFF IT /. .

PHONE 882 8215 DEAR ANN: Do you have the courage to print a letter in your column that appeared in the National Catholic Register? It is a poignant and touching plea for understanding from a member of a minority group. Here it is: Dear Editor: I cannot understand why the Church does not do more to help the homosexual. The Church is ready to extend Christian charity to the drug addict, the alcoholic, the criminal, the handicapped and the aged, but not to the homosexual. I am one of the despised "outcasts" and I need help desperately. I've been to five psychiatrists, checked myself into two mental hospitals, and still I a m unable to adjust. I value my Catholic faith highly, but is it any wonder that so many homosexuals reject the Church when the Church rejected them first? It is bad enough there is no ministry to homosexuals, but there are even those like some in England, believe it or not, who want to brand homosexuals on the forehead. Lord have mercy. I cannot sign this letter for obvious reasons, but I hope you have the courage to print it. - FROM ST. LOUIS Dear Friend: It required no particular courage to print your letter. This space has, for many years, reflected many points of view. Please .read on: says, "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them." Gay Blade describes himself as a 24-year-old homosexual who is.happy and doesn't need any help. He does not consider homosexuality an illness and claims he's healthier than many of his heterosexual friends. If Gay Blade takes the time to verify the above Bible verse he might not feel so "healthy." - J. Dear J.: The appropriate person to respond to your letter is a theole«|ian. I enlisted the help of a Mary knoll Father, from Hingman, Massachusetts, an authority in translating biblical interpretation into modern-day language. He responded: DEAR ANN: In your answer to "Gay Blade" you said, and I quote: "People are becoming more understanding and I say it's about time society stopped viewing all homosexuals as loathsome freaks." ARE people becoming more understanding, or are they being brainwashed by a flood of articles and TV discussions that countenances homosexuals and lesbianism? In the Old Testament, Leviticus Chapter 20, Verse 13, it Toastmistress Party Planned The High Point Toastmistress Club will have a Christmas party on Thursday at the Brintwood Restaurant. The event will begin at 7 p.m. DEAR ANN: For Jews and Christians alike, passages like Leviticus 20, 13, declare that a deep and faithful heterosexual relationship is God's will for human fulfillment. Anything less than this is inadequate. Biblical texts are always written out of a particular situation. Leviticus is part of a Law Code. It no more speaks to society's total responsibility to the individual than an isolated paragraph of the U. S. Criminal Code. The demand for the death penalty for an act of sodomy may have been part of a campaign to wipe out the pagan practice of male and female prostitution that periodically threatened to invade Judah's own worship. I hope you can translate this explanation into something digestible for your readers, Ann. I will have been a privilege to repay the debt I, and other priests owe your column for fleshing out our own human and pastoral com- 1 petence. — J. J. M. Dear Father: Your explanation needed no "translation." 'f, i s abundantly clear and I thank you for it. Going to a wedding? Giving one? Or standing up in one?
