Living Today The Salina Journal Saturday, January 25,1986 Page 6 Few pet cats want outdoor freedom Dear Ann Landers: Your readers write often about dogs but never about cats. Cat lovers need information. I hope you will print my letter. Very few cats need to run loose. If you permit this, they will come home with fleas, ticks, ear mites, worms and other infectious diseases and parasites transmitted from other cats. That is, if they come home at all. They could easily get run over by a car. It only takes once. The old adage cats need the freedom of the great outdoors is about 98 percent wrong. I have four cats now. I moved out to the country a year ago from a townhouse in a busy, well-populated area. You'd think they would be outside chasing butterflies. No way. The 7- year-old Burmese goes outside, eats grass for two minutes, cries to get back into the house and then unceremoniously throws up on my living room rug. My Japanese Bobtail, odd-eyed (one blue and one gold), was flown in from Winnipeg. First I didn't want to let her outside but I decided to give her a chance. She was so scared she hid under the shed all night and the next morning I found her sitting on the newspaper waiting to be let into the house. Many people believe those often repeated stories cats need to run loose once in a while. This is NOT true. If you love your cat, keep him or her at home.

Ohio 825-1987 Mid State Mall 825-7393 Striped, wide-brimmed hat tops a pared-down skirt and black linen sheath with white lapelled bolero by Yves Saint Laurent. Yves Saint Laurent goes against trend By The New York Times PARIS — You have to give Yves Saint Laurent credit. While every other designer seems to be jockeying for the honor of making the tightest possible clothes for spring and summer, he took a step in the opposite direction. He introduced skirts with a pleasant A-line flare, like those associated with the House of Dior in the 1950s, when Saint Laurent was Christian Dior's fledgling assistant. Full skirts are a rarity here as designers have presented clothes even the slenderest models find trying. The strength to go against the trend is a sign of self- confidence. Saint Laurent's first A-line skirts appeared in leather. The hems skimmed the knees, they had high waistbands, and they appeared in navy and red smooth leather as well as gray suede. The shape was so appealing it showed up in other materials. It appeared in gabardine and linen for day wear and, in longer versions, in field flower prints for summer evenings. Some of the flaring skirts were joined with Saint Laurent's other major revival, the bolero jacket. This very brief cover-up — it often stops above the waistline — makes sense for warm weather. In addition to spare, minimal boleros, there are some with white collars and cuffs. Interestingly, some of the best Saint Laurent outfits were the simplest, and they tended to be shown in unrelieved black. A flaring coat over black pants and sweater worn with a black turban, a black moire jumpsuit and black leather pants worn with a changeable taffeta smocklike blouse were outstanding. In addition to flaring skirts, there were also narrow styles and quite a lot of pants. Saint Laurent's trousers this season are shoe-top length and have straight legs. There are tiny gathers or pleats at the waistline to provide ease. The good things at Saint Laurent include hip-length jackets indented sharply at the waistline and fastened with one button and a barrage of gold lame blouses with long black crepe skirts or pants to wear at night. Saint Laurent's slick new leather flared skirt with a wide waistband and his tiny new shrug boleros teamed with honed-down long or short skirts are perfect wardrobe additions. Bright, sexy clothes proliferated throughout the spring collections. But the trend to an hourglass body beautiful was outstanding in the eye- popping short suits and dresses of Emanuel Ungaro, who once worked for Hubert de Givenchy, another advocate of leggy and shapely clothes. Evening wear was often slinky, backless or bare-midriffed, split or draped to show the leg and frequently sporting bowed details at a draped hip or on the back. Givenchy toned down his flower prints for his well-heeled admirers. Ungaro played to the cocktail-lounge set with blinding, showy colors in luxuriant satins and silks. Lots of black and white was thrown in along with some full, long skirts for more conservative dressers. Claude Montana made a hit with his most shapely collection ever. His best new suit look is a narrow, short skirt or tight bicycle pedal-pushers teamed with a partially-belted long jacket with long, curvy lapels. With all the glitzy, cocktail looks shown for next summer, there also were enough sailor suits to clothe every cruising fashion-watcher in the world. Stripes, navy, or black and white set the tone in gabardines, cotton knits, linen and silk. Pants were generally straight and wider at the ankles, and even short skirts were made to look nautical with gold-buttoned long or short blazers, middy blouses or striped sweaters. Safari outfits were big too, with neat, belted jackets over cuffed and wide linen and poplin shorts or long skirts. In the desert mood, many Paris designers showed color palettes ranging from off-white sandy shades to khaki, clay or ruddy terra cotta, burnt siena brown and blue clear as summer sky over Marrakech, Morocco. Combine this with hip or bodice- draped Dorothy Lamour-style flowered sarongs or East Indian baggy jersey pants with silk Nehru jackets, and the sexy summer fashions will fill any woman's expensive luggage. Most big-name Paris clothes are pricey, from about $50 cotton T-shirts to $5,000-plus evening gowns with sparkling embroidery. Heavily-layered Japanese clothes appear on the way out. But the Japanese have not lost face in Paris. Issey Miyake showed some soft peach and blue gossamer-light floating cotton beach jackets and mixed- print draped outfits. Rei Kawakubo at Comme des Garcons switched from torn, messy looks of the past to feminine lines in black and white. REPEAT OF A SELL OUT! FINAL 2 DAYS AN INCREDIBLE SPECIAL PURCHASE OFFER!
