A chambermaid at her hotel found Chanel ill Sunday night, and she died shortly after. Officials of her fashion house said death apparently was due to a heart attack. Funeral arrangements were incomplete today.

Chanel's death also will not delay the opening in Cleveland tonight of "Coco," the musical based on her life in which Katharine Hepburn scored a smash hit last season. Producer Frederick Brisson, an old friend, .said Chanel told him several weeks ago "if and X when anything happened to her, the show was to go on as usual. That's the way it will be." Brisson said the performance tonight would be dedicated to Chanel. < Chanel's revolutions in fashion brought haute couture in reach of the working girl after World War I. "There are too many men in this business," she said, "and they don't know how to make wearable clothes for women. When fashion descends to the street it's a revolution, but when it comes up from the street it's a catastrophe." She rescued women from the corsets and long-skirted frills of the Edwardian and World War I eras and in 1916 introduced inexpensive jersey cloth to high fashion, tweed suits with jersey blouses, bell- bottomed trousers, trench- coats and pea jackets, turtleneck sweaters and the collared and cuffed little black dress were Coco innovations. She introduced the sailor hat, and when she impulsively bobbed her hair one night another fashion sensation was born. She made costume jewelry respectable. The box jacket simple skirt of the Chanel suit probably has been copied more often and in more price ranges than any other garment designed by a couturier. Millions who didn't know Chanel for her fashion designs knew her for the perfume she introduced in 1922 and named after her lucky number. Chanel No. 5 became the most famous perfume in the world and foundation of her fortune. It outsells all other perfumes in 140 countries. , Chanel guarded religiously her actual birth date, because "a woman has the age she deserves." But it was generally accepted that she was born on Aug. 19, 1883, near Issolre in the Auvergne, a mountainous region of south-central France. Her mother died of tuberculosis when Gabrielle was 6, and her father deserted her and her three sisters. He had nicknamed her Coco —"little pet"-sand it stuck with the become women's enjoying girl who was to the epitome of liberation while womanhood and VACUUM CLEANERS WASHING MACHINES MIDDLECOFF'S PARTS & SERVICE 828 E. 7th 462-4423 WIG SALE SYNTHETIC AND HAIR $QOO S FROM O TO Call 465-6551 OO Treasure Trove Book Store Hours—9 a.m. to 5 n.m.

Reared by two tyrannical aunts who raised horses for the French army, Gabrieile Bonheur Chanel—the middle name moans "Happiness"— learned to sew and ride with equal expertise. She opened her first shop in 1913 in Deauville, then moved to 31 Rue Cambon the next year, the address destined to be fashion's mecca for decades to come. She engaged in flirtations, always avoiding matrimony, and she became an immensely wealthy woman in her own right after the perfume hit the market in 1922. During the 1930s her fortune was estimated at $15 million and she became known as a businesswoman with few equals. She loved to make money almost as much as she loved her independence. Interrupted by World War II, Coco's career took a downturn and she refrained from designing for 15 years, living off royalties from her other inteests. Her return to couture in 1954 was snubbed by the fashion critics, but her acceptance by the public grew steadily, and by the 1960s she was as influential as ever. i lore Her you Questions asked by dieters MISS NORWKLL Engagement announced The engagement of Miss Brenda Sue Nonvcll to Pfe.

II o w worthwhile are reducing clubs and classes? If you are greatly overweight, joining a group can be useful. You benefit from attendant supervision, companionship and increased diet knowledge. Docs massage have value in reducing? It is helpful because of its firming effect which leads to a loss of inches — not pounds. How effective are those meals packaged for dieters? Liquid meals make a good breakfast or lunch. But dieters require a meal of solid food each day. Frozen diet, meals are well thought out and quick to get ready. Using them to the exclusion of other fare could prove boring. A dieter's diet must offer variety to keep her interest up and her calorie count down. What pill can you take to lose weight?
