SWOE STORE Downtown, Logansport Quit Smoking Non-smokers are slowly but surely winning the world over You can't smoke anymore on New York commuter trains and it probably won't be very long until you can't smoke anywhere. You probably can't smoke where you work now, and restaurants and planes are also becoming smoke-free. What happened is the anti- smokers, obnoxious though they can be, have won, and smokers have become outcasts and subjects of much derision. If you smoke, there is only one plausible thing left for you to do. You must quit. 1 know. This comes from a man who smoked his head off for years and loved every cigarette he ever had. Smoking was one of the great pleasures of my life. A cigarette was like a little reward I gave myself 25 to 40 times a day. But I quit. For several reasons: — I've already had two heart- valve replacement surgeries Lewis Grizzard and may one day face another. I need to smoke like I need getting poked in the eye with a sharp stick. — Very few of my friends smoke anymore. I began to feel uncomfortable smoking in front of them. — I fly 150 times a year. Airlines are turning off the smoking lights. — Flying makes me nervous enough as it is without also craving a cigarette. — None of my friends believed I really had the courage to stop smoking. I quit to prove them wrong. Here's how 1 did it, after smoking for 23 years: — I made a pact with three friends that we would stop smoking together. — 1 figured at least one of them wouldn't make it and I could start again, too. But they all stayed smokeless and I hung in there with them. — When the craving was at its worst, I kept telling myself, "Nobody ever died from stopping smoking." — I also relied on others who quit long ago who said to me, "I know it's hard for you to believe now, but there will come a time you won't even think of a cigarette anymore." It took me three weeks to reach the point where I actually had a thought other than having a cigarette. — I substituted eating ice cream for smoking. I put on 15 quick pounds and made the Haagen- Daz people rich, but it still helped me quit smoking. I became an obnoxious nonsmoker myself. I berated a man (a small man) for lighting up in a non-smoking area of an Amtrak train and ] bragged to friends who continued to smoke after I quit: "Well, all I can say is I'm glad I'm no longer a slave to tobacco." If I ever start again I would have to face much finger- pointing and ridicule. That gives me strength to carry on. I gave myself an out. I'm going to start smoking again on my 90th birthday. Quit, dammit. Miniskirts Vetoed For Most Working Women The ultra-short skirt may be the height of fashion, but it is off-limits as office wear for women dressing for success. That was the consensus of a panel of hard-working but high- style women executives whose opinions appear in an article in the current issue of Harper's Bazaar discussing wardrobe do's and don'ts for working women. Pants also came under fire. "I doubt that women who work on Wall Street, in law firms and men-oriented businesses will be wearing pants or short skirts," said Christy Ferer, who heads Vidicom Productions and also covers fashion for NBC's "Today" show. "I think these fall in the same category — pants and skirts of above 19 inches. You're not likely to see a lot of pants or short skirts on women making deals." Short skirts were vetoed by panelist, including Ivana Trump, chief executive officer of Trump Castle Hotel and Casino. "It depends on the business," she said. "I'm in a business totally dominated by men. I have 4.000 employees and out of those 3,500 are men. If I came in wearing a skirt that was only 15 inches long, I would lose my credibility. "When I have a meeting with the finance committee vice presidents and we're talking millions of dollars spent here and there, I don't think you can come in with a very short skirt." She described her skirts this way: "I go short, but I don't go too short." Elsa Peretti, who has designed jewelry exclusively for Tiffany's since 1974, spoke of young girls who looked fantastic in short skirts, but added: "Of course, it would be terri- ble to have them in the office because everyone will look at their legs. But they look really great." Carolyne Roehm, formerly with Oscar de la Renta and now head of her own design house, agreed that women executives who weren't 18-year-olds should not, wear ultra-short skirts. "But it's such a sad commentary for those young women on Wall Street who have this fixation that they have to dress so conservatively," she said. "It's a question of corporate culture," said Susie Tompkins, cofounder and design director of Esprit de Corps clothing, "You have to look at where you work. And in my company it would be very inappropriate to be overdressed, to wear corporate clothing to work." Hilary Weston, director of Canada's Holt Renfrew department store chain, voted against pants in sales jobs, but predicted: "Pants are going to be really popular because women can't make up their minds whether to wear long skirts or short skirts." The executives deplored the American woman's lack of fashion self-confidence. "The European woman can just wear a black sweater and skirt at any age so much better than the majority of American women," said Lee Radziwiil, a mainstay at Giorgio Armani. "and that doesn't take time to put, together. That's the confidence again." The panel was split on whether black was "in" and "out." "It's never out. All black will never be out," Tompkins said. But designer Roehm countered, "I think it should be out because every dinner party looks like a fancy dress funeral." 5ALH PICTURED srvies 3PEC1RC. 3TYLSS MAY /-JOT B£ LAYAWAY AVAILABLE LAYAWAY AVAILABLE LOGANSPORT MALL 753-9521
