She paid $11,500 for the one-of-a-kind frock, which very well may still contain essence of Winslet: the size 6-8 dress has not been cleaned since the actress wore it. I, for one, think the buyer was simply rendered helpless by the Peterman prose: "Imagine an evening gown made to be worn one night only. During the maiden voyage of the Titanic. Imagine a beautiful clear-skinned upper-class girl in it. Chiffon, satin sash, antique lace, faux pearl buttons. And music." Can you blame the woman? Who doesn't want clear skin? Who doesn't like music? If I could have contacted her before she dialed the 800 number, though, I could have talked her down. "It's a lavender gown with fake pearls," I would say, "steeped in a British actress' sweat It does not include a title, a new family crest or a tube of Clearasil. And when was the last time you heard the melodious ' strains of a full orchestra? Admit it. The soundtrack of our vapid American lives is more likely the hungry-baby-bird sounds of a Spice Girls anthem. "Now get a hold of yourself." Of course, there's always the thrill of being leered at by a Circle K clerk. The Dodd Road Church of Christ will celebrate its Tenth Anniversary on Sunday December 7, 1 997. Our worship service on that date will be at 1 0:30am, a potluck dinner at noon, and anniversary services at 2:30 in the afternoon, with fellowship hour after the anniversary ceremony. Since we are a bilingual congregation, all services will be in both Spanish and English. We would be honored to have you join us for this special occasion.

Rather, the catalog is offering props from the much-touted movie, opening Dec. 19. John Peter-man says he approached 20th Century Fox last summer to discuss buying the props faithful recreations of the bounty from the ill-fated liner. . Oh, Mr. Peterman. Why must you taunt me? Only recently by economic necessity have I learned to resist you. To talk myself down, so to speak, when your catalog arrives. - I have learned to deconstruct the weedy Peterman-esque prose and reduce the items to their lowest common denominator: "The catalog," I tell myself, "may say that this quilted alpine parka is available in midnight or scarlet. "But it's really just a nylon jacket in black or red. "It may say it will remind everyone of the coat worn by a certain Swedish actress while skiing in Gstaad (which, by the way, is a resort village in the Bernese Alps of Switzerland). "But it comes with neither an airline ticket nor a cosmetic surgery voucher." -.1 turn the page and move on with my life. . Before I learned that skill, I was more susceptible. More vulnerable. As a result, I own several outfits that have never covered my body while I danced in a fountain with Jordan Baker. (That would be my "Zelda Dress.") I have never posed for a French Fauvist painter in my "Matisse Pants." And I have never drawn appreciative glances from shy country boys while buying thread at a notions store in my "Prettiest Girl in Town Dress," though I did once receive a lascivious stare from a 7-Eleven clerk. . I can only imagine the approving looks if I slapped a jaunty little White Star Line Titanic Crewman's Cap on my head!

But I'm keeping a level head. I remind myself that I have only a weeklong house, and my neighborhood association is so uptight that we must all have identical mailboxes. I'm sure somewhere in the 600-page covenant is an edict forbidding enormous fiberglass anchors as decorative devices. Nor do I have a desire to discover that one of only 20 Ti tanic-the-movie wicker chairs ($650) has been masticated to a slimy glob by my dog.

Furthermore, among those who reported improvement, the average decrease in pain score was 7 for the magnet group and only 4 for the dummy group. "We cannot explain the significant and quick pain relief reported by our study patients," wrote the researchers, from Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, in the November issue of the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. They speculated that the magnets might have caused changes in pain-receptor cells, provoked an indirect response in the brain or affected the release of pain-diminj ishing body chemicals called enkephalins. They noted that "similar responses to magnetic fields have been reported in patients" who had different diseases. In calling for further study, they also remarked "that none of our patients reported any discomfort resulting from the use of magnetic devices and that no complications have been reported in the literature" from the use of such low-intensity magnetic fields. .

In a recent study of 50 patients, application of a small magnet to painful muscles and joints was far more effective than application of an identical but non-magnetized device. ; Participants in the study had Significant pain for at least four weeks because of postpolio syndrome, the name given to the muscle weakness, fatigue, pain and other symptoms that can occur in adults who had severe polio when young. They were asked to assess their pain on a 10-point scale when a sensitive area ("trigger point") was touched. ; ' A small magnet or a placebo device (neither doctors nor participants knew who got which until after the study) was taped to the area and left for 45 minutes. When it was removed, they were again asked to gauge their pain. ; Twenty-two out of 29 patients (76 percent) who were treated with a real magnet reported im- iirovement, compared with only our out of 21 (19 percent) who WEST PALM BEACH Holy Trinity 655-8650 600 S.
