After o fashion i f Time is the 2nd greatest gift, says Anne Debutante' 'lS Salina Journal Page 9 By Marian, Christy NEW YORK - Bikinied, 100-pound designer Anne Fogarty was lying on a chaise lounge sunning on the elegant rooftop of her 5,-story East Side tqwnhouse and observing that time was man's 2nd greatest gift -- after health. "Even money is useless if you don't have time to spend it wisely," says rich widow Anne whose 2nd husband, Richard Kollmar, once was married to columnist Dorothy Kilgallen. The chic townhouse, which Anne is redesigning in white-brown and steel, once belonged to Richard and Dorothy. People always are asking Anne if she isn't haunted by memories indigenous to that house. Richard dropped dead there on Christmas Eve 4 years ago while decorating the banisters with holly. And Anne had attended many posh parties there when she was divorced from her first husband and Dorothy and Richard were concerned about her "aloneness." Enjoying cling "Time has made it very clear that I'm comfortable in this environment," says Anne who was born in Pittsburgh and got started in fashion as a model. "Allthe memories are pleasant and I'm enjoying the cling." Anne is hepped up about the element of time these days because she is creating a small gold watch collection ($75-$200) for Marvin Co. of Switzerland which will be in stores coast to coast by Christmas. "Time really rules life," says Anne who'll only wear Dick's watch, a Patik Phillippe face which she had set in a wide band of nail- head-punctuated brown suede. There are no large timepieces in the townhouse. "Time is the inevitable route between life and death," says Anne with profound simplicity. She and millions like her prefer not to have grim reminders of disappearing days looming around. Household timepieces are in her future -and will be designed in offbeat ways. "There's no reason why a timepiece can't be a conversation piece," she says. One idea Anne is working on is a small clock that is a telephone attachment and rings automatically when a 3-minute conversation is terminated. Anne hates long conversations that say nothing. "The art of direct conversation must be perfected by Americans who waste time littering and listening to nonsense," says Anne. "This device will help them use time wisely." , The other Fogarty clock is portable and set in lucite. This number doubles as a paperweight and can be transported to strategic places in a home. "Sometimes a person wants to forget that time is running out," says Anne. "When Time on her m i n d Anne Fogarty designs the gingham check lucite cube watch, above, and the safety pin watch, below. that's the mood, the portable clock can be ditched somewhere and forgotten." Signature Elegantes who have worn Anne Fogarty clothes know that her signature is a safety pin. It started when she was modeling and the button burst off her bouffant petticoat. She instantly pinned it on and pirouetted superbly. She's convinced the pin in time saved her career. With her first pay check, she bought a solid gold safety pin and wore it as jewelry. Eventually, when she started designing, she'd put costume jewelry safety pins on collars. "I always figured a girl could use a safety pin if a zipper burst or a button went. It's practical ornamentation. Women understood," - The first Anne Fogarty watch on the market will be a solid-gold safety pin with the clock set in the head and the bracelet a thin band of gold curving around the wrist. "People always have connected me with the safety pin," she says and gives her old mark a new twist. Uniform companies have succeeded in getting Anne to create fashionable career apparel for banks, waitresses and key punch operators. In an effort to simplify work clothes, Anne plans to attach a waterproof- shatterproof watch to the uniform so that it becomes an integral part of the fashion. "A watch, which represents time, becomes a part of you." says Anne. "In the morning, you don't ask yourself first which »A fcJti^Jfa^J».v)^il,.l,. hing in life to wear are 1/3 off at Downtown Store Hours: Weekdays 9-5 Thurs. 9-6 ring or bracelet shall I wear? You think: Where in heaven's name is my watch?" Despite all her concern with time, Anne is notorious for being late for meetings, dates, dinnerparties. Sometimes time should not figure in life's scheme of things -- especially when a woman is planning an important evening on the town. Anne hates watches with evening clothes. , "When I go out at night, I stay up late and want no reminder of pressures -- time included." Anne really has lots of "time" stories in ' store and, because she's designing watches, she's mulling them over. Recently she went to the opening of a 2nd Avenue pub called Hazard Powder Co. but the furniture hadn't arrived in time. The enterprising young owners invited everyone to sit on the carpeting and drink the bubbly. The invitation was so successful that there's still no furniture in thejilace. People come to sit on the floor Arab-style. "Sometimes when time runs out, it's for the best," is Anne's punchline. But, on the other side of the coin, she has regrets about decisions which, in retrospect, turned out to be time "wasted." When she returned from a Mexico trip, Richard Kollmar met her at the airport and proposed. He wanted to get married that day. Anne said no and pleaded to wait 5 weeks so she could design a beautiful pink wedding gown. "Now I think we could have had 5 more weeks together," is the hindsight remark. SU11 time slips away. Last week she was in Ogunquit, Me., with television model Julie Meade. The 2 friends got to talking about the pros and cons of Women's Liberation and pretty soon it was time for breakfast. "I never look at a watch if the company is pleasant and the dialogue is one-to-one," says Anne. For the bride Victoria Hoye Pre-nuptial courtesies are planned this week for Victoria Ann Hoye and her husband-to-be, Sgt. Daniel Martin Vorheis.

Elected Sharolyn Harris of Salina was elected vice-president of Nu Tau Sigma sorority at Brown Mackie school of business. a d/'rfy word (C) New York Times NEW YORK -- A young woman on Long Island who, in an earlier time, would have taken it for granted that she would be making a debut this Winter, recently told her mother that she simply could not take part "in those crazy dance figures." Furthermore, she was not about to "sit on the floor with other debutantes in a circle and sing Christmas carols while holding a candle." The rebellious young woman was referring to the annual Debutante Cotillion and Christmas Ball, one of the biggest of such affairs here in the holiday season. And at about the same time a woman who is on the board of the Junior Assembly, probably the most prestigious party in New York, was saying she doubts she can get her daughter to go even to that. These instances are typical of what is going on in the social world from Boston, through New York and Philadelphia, as far south as Baltimore. And as far west as Cincinnati, a society editor said the other day, "We're definitely in transition. There are many fewer parties this year and we're not referring to girls as debutantes: they're 'girls who are to be presented' because that's the way they want it." In Philadelphia a social arbiter said, "Debutante has become a dirty word here." Since the traditional coming-out balls have always been costly affairs, it is reasonable to suppose most parents would be relieved when their daughters don't want the parties anymore. But no. According to the social secretaries who run such parties, the parents are as eager as ever to go through with a coming-out and are usually disappointed, grieved or chagrined when their daughters balk. "A formal debut is so old-fashioned; the, girls I know what to relate to something more real," said the young lady on Long Island -- the one who says she can't go through with cotillion figures and singing carols. "And," she went on. "the parties are such fakes -- meeting all those people you'll never see again."
