The body should have freedom,'' says Mrs. H a r i 1 a o s Theo- doracopulos American wife of the Greek shipowner, and one of the 12 women elected to the International best-Dressed list of 1970. vShe dislocated her hip trying to get out of a taxi cab in a long, straight skirl, and sent the skirt to the dressmaker saying, "cut it. off!" She wears skirts at the knee with boots, ankle-lengths for evening and midicoats. But she still wears microminis, too. "I've worn short shorls for two years," she says, adding that designer Halston made her a tweed pair with a long vest over them. Aclolfo a n d Galanos are two other favorite designers. "I love sexy clothes. A lot of the longer lengths aren't sexy. And you have to dress to be comfortable. With all that extra weight on your legs, it is hard to move around," she says.

Ill Kistaier-Booth vows said Can exercise help (he nerves? Answer: To the extent that improved circulation and muscle "tone" contribute to well being, exercise can help a nervous person. But there are no specific "no-rvous workouts" that can help someone handle his edginess better. If he wants to get over his nervousness and there is no physical reason for it, then his next step is to eliminate by himself or with the help a therapist — the cause his problem. it stealing to go through a husband's pockets? Answer: No. It isn't stealing for a wife — working or not — to go through her husband's pockets while he is asleep. It is, say Rubin Blanck and Gertrude Blanck in "Marriage and Personal Development" (Columbia of of Is University Press) a sign of i nc o m p I e I e personality development. Such a person (it could be a man who filches from his wile's pockotbook) is still struggling to set behavior standards. Should logic be used with teenagers? Answer: Yes, but it has to be logic that makes sense to young people as well as to those who deal with them. Parents, teachers, employers, and the like, hear the universal complaint from teenagers: "You don't understand." Older people, in most cases, do understand, since they were once young. What they have to do is convince teenagers lhat they, do understand and proceed logically from that mutual promise. Miss Donna Jean Booth of Florissant, Mo., daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Leo E.

Household pointers By POLLY CRAMER DEAR POLLY - I would like to tell Eva Jean that adding a loose hanging sheath lining should keep her dresses from wrinkling. When I cut the lining the same as the dress, it works well. — PAULINE DEAR POLLY AND EVA JEAN — A tip I learned from a WAC sergeant has stood me in good stead and helps keep all kinds of materials from wrinkling when one sits down. First, run your hands from bust to hips, smoothing the front down tight to you and then catch the sides of the skirt at the lower hipline and pull straight out until you feel the material tight across the hips, then neatly fii down and drop skirt to sides of the chair. • With knits and tight-fitting or smoother laying materials, such as wool, run your hands down over the hips to the thighs in back, pulling skirt tight to you and then sit down. When you stand up no wrinkles. This should be done every time you sit down, even in the car. Raise your hips off the seat and pull skirt tight in a dress and this pulls the back between the shoulders down so it does not wrinkle there. When a coat is on, unbutton coat, pull skirt then coat flat under you and no wrinkled coat. This can soon become a habit that will pay off for you. — ANN MRS. LAWRENCE All Together • Noiv! always wanted to travel and have a little fun. Last month when our youngest boy turned 13 our goal was in sight. Another two years and he'd be off to prep school and we'd be free. I felt ten years younger just thinking about it! Just as I was making plans to have a vasectomy, my wife announced that she had seen the doctor and he told her she is pregnant. I asked her to have an abortion. She refused. We got into an argument and now she isn't speaking to me. I think she i s happy about this pregnancy. In fact, I have a sneaking suspicion she got this way on purpose. The prospect of. being "tied down until I am nearly 60 depresses me. The way I see it, either my wife has an abortion or I get a divorce. When I told her to take her choice she didn't believe I was serious — but I am. I realize this is an extreme measure but I can't face raising another child. I'd like your honest opinion. — ON THE BRINK DEAR ON: My honest opinion is that you are either off your rocker or an 18 Carat Heel. Maybe both. Your wife did not get pregnant by herself. If she wants to have this baby you have no right to ask her to have an abor- . tion. She is the one who must carry the child, deliver it, and' care for it. The least you can do is give her a full measure of emotional support. My advice is to stop acting like a jackass and , accept this fourth child with dignity. DEAR ANN: Several days ago, I ran into a fellow I dated a few times when I was in high school. We are now both 23. I am not married. Bud is. In fact he has two small children. I was immensely attracted to Bud when we were in school but he didn't seem to go for me. When we met in . the supermarket he was knocked out by my looks, my figure, the whole bit. He said he'd love to see me again, but he made it plain he couldn't take me out publicly. He'd like to come to my place and see me "quietly." It seems he married the "wrong" girl. His wife is unresponsive and cold. He needs someone who can give his life meaning. I am dating several fellows but no one seriously. (My true love was killed in 1968, Vietnam.) I'm not promiscuous but I do have a . yen for this old flame. I guess I really feel sorry for him. He is miserable and he wants me. Would it be wrong? — VULNERABLE DEAR VUL: We both know what you can do for HIM, but what can he do for you? For openers: He can take up a lot of your time. And he's sure to improve your cooking and double your grocery bill because you'll be fixing little suppers, . . . trying out new recipes. While you "give his life meaning" you'll be passing up opportunities to date single fellows. And let's not overlook the possibility that he might dump his wife and marry you. You would then have the privilege of helping him with alimony and support money for the children. Knit pants partners for city-country, day or night! ! Mix-match this trio all thru 1971!
