Coping With Perspiration BY ALICIA HAKT NBA Beauty Editor ffow, here's the matter of aroma, a singularly unattractive subject to most teenagers. Some very young women start early to use the strongest deodorant they can locate. Others let it go by for years and years. An in-between teener is hard put to know which course to elect. If she does ask a friend in a roundabout way, she's generally sure she's getting an insincere answer and Is more in a quandary than ever. The teens are years of glandular change. This can often show up in heavy, though not necessarily odorous, perspiration. Sometimes it does have an aroma. A gal shouldn't have to ask-anyone. For instance, certain synthetics are particularly sensitive to aroma. If a sweater smells funny after you take it off, you can generally bet that you do, too. Keep in mind that there are two kinds of products: deodorants and antiperspirants. There are degrees of strength in each kind. Try until you find one that works for you and isn't too strong. If antiperspirants are called for, and you find you can't wear them, attach dress shields and launder daily. And if there's a dress that has no location for shields, wear the antiperspirant that one time, but cautiously. > Expect your feet to perspire more Not Ready to Quit SURKY, Va. Vfl — Sidney B. Barham, Jr., 83, says he-will stay in office as clerk of courts as long as the people want him. He's been on the job 33 years. Prior to that he served in both branches of the Virginia legislature.
