But the fact that a few women misuse fragrance should not keep others from using it. When applied with a deft touch, fragrance enhances a woman's most feminine qualities and her security in their appeal. Those around her can only take pleasure in her aura. During the summer months, scents offer an additional boon. They are a means to instant refreshment. The use of light floral, spicy and leafy perfumes or colognes brings an immediate sense of relief from oppressive heat. Merely splash your wrists and throat with a light perfume and you feel fresher. A cologne rubdown after a bath keeps you feeling frosty for hours. If the assence is truly delicate, you can apply it liberally and often, without fear of giving offense. Actually, more women err on the side of applying too little than too much fragrance. A scent should be perceivable or, like the rose that blushes all unseen, it cannot give enjoyment. Just what is the saturation point? Well, perfume chemists —those men with trained noses —say that your fragrance should permeate the air around you to a depth of 12 inches. And the only way you can measure the emanation is to ask a friend to make a sniff test. After several tests, you learn to gauge applications and so make the most of them. © Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Martinez-Delehanty Married Saturday at 9:30 a.m. nuptial Mass in St. Patrick's Catholic Church were Miss Agnes Delehanty and Joseph Edward Martinez.

At the head of the column of marchers is Gary Teasley, a Boy Scout trail guide. Ann Landers Sensible Teen-Agers Will Laugh Piasa Trail Easy Hike for Scouts By NINA MESZAtlOS Telegraph Slaff Writer A young girl's coin purse lies somewhere along the circular 1'1-rnile Piasa Bird Trail today, left behind Sunday afternoon with the footprints of the first Girl Scout troop to make the trip. The next ambitious group to take the rugged trail may find and return the purse to record-making Troop 166, led by Mrs. Chester Strohecker. The trail, opened early this month, leads participants through the Alton bluff area, with headquarters at the Alton Police Youth Camp. The group which chalked up the record is composed of nine area girls, aged 10 through 12. They departed at 7:10 a.m., and checked in at the camp at 2 p.m., thinking they are "pretty good for just girls." The fastest trip reported previously was five hours and 20 minutes. Mrs, Strohecker accompanied her girls every step of the way, and says she is proud of them. She says they were well-behaved, followed orders, and came through with no ill effects, and no drop-outs. Greatest grievance was the swarms of willow bugs. No blisters were found on the feet of the hikers, and although their leader will admit she feels a few muscles she didn't know she had before, she, too feels fit after the long trip. The girls participating were Kristen Johnson, Martha Kinsella, Susan Lyon, Carol Massey, Frances Scott, Jane Strohecker, Kendall Strohecker, Arlette Wilson and Sarah Gainer. The hikers took little time to looks for souvenirs, but one geode was found in the cliffs, which authorities say are at least 200 million years old. The participants were seen along the McAdams highway from time to time as they ascended and descended during the prescribed itinerary. They walked single file most of the time, carried water canteens, stopping a few times to remove ticks and check for blisters. They had been cautioned to wear long pants, two pairs of socks, shirts with sleeves and hats with some brim. The troop had prepared for the trip through the last 10 days, taking practice hikes of 5, 8 and then 10 miles each. Mrs. Strohecker says she got the idea of taking her troop on the trail when she read the account in the Alton Evening Telegraph of its opening and the men who had walked it. She talked it over with her girls, and all readily agreed to participate. She says they may take the trip again during the fall, and they also plan to take the 20- mile Cahokia trail.

A friend sent it with a one word note: "Sickening!" "Teen accounts welcomed. Rings with diamonds for the girl you are going with. Beautiful twin hearts with a sparkling diamond. Only $11.95. Can be paid out at 50 cents a week. Open your teen account today." In the same ad was a picture of the "Princess diamond ring—for your steady girl." This was priced at $39.50 and could be had for $1 a week. It boasted "15 brilliant diamonds." I would like your opinion of this. PLENTY OLD-FASHIONED DBA friend's pressed ly.

Teen-agers who have been raised with decent values will laugh at such nonsense. * * * * DEAR ANN: I address myself to the woman who calls herself a doctor's wife and signed her letter "Amazed At Your Ignorance." I wish someone would remind these doctors' wives who are afraid their husbands might get a call at home that they chose the profession because they wanted to help people. The same goes for ministers. I am sick of hearing wives of doctors and clergymen complain because they are inconvenienced at odd hours. We wonder why mental problems are on the increase? One reason may be that ministers and doctors are no longer available for consultation. They avoid you like the plague if they think you want to discuss a problem. People have no one to talk to anymore—and their troubles grow into illnesses. Yes, I know there are psychiatrists and analysts but they have no place in the beginning— only after people are too sick to get help elsewhere. And not everyone can afford treatment. So please tell these so-called "humanitarians" that service means putting the needs of others first. K they don't want to be bothered let them do something else and stop calling themselves doctors and ministers. PITTSBURGH CITIZEN DEAR PITTSBURGH: It is grossly unfair to put all doctors and clergymen in the same barrel and tar them with the same brush. I know many doctors and clergymen who are dedicated to public service. I'm sorry you don't know them, too—your life would be incomparably richer if you did. * » • * DEAR ANN: Last winter I went on a strict diet and lost 45 pounds. I would not enter a Miss Universe contest but my figure is vastly improved and I'm proud of myself. I have not owned a bathing suit since I was 9 because I was so fat I refused to be seen in one. Of course I don't know how to swim. Would it be ridiculous for me to buy a suit this year and go to the beach? My mother says it's a crazy idea. She claims it's the same as carrying a racket when you can't play tennis. Do you agree with her?—EX-HIPPO DEAR EX: No. Buy a bathing suit, go to the beach and get someone to teach you to swim. » * * * Confidential to BRICK WALL: Why not make him a deal?

Speaker of the evening was the Rev. Robert Heintz, class member, on the topic: "Stepping Stones." Thirty-three grads, most with husbands or wives, made up the guest list of 75. It was a night of evaluation. A report of his slice of life was given by each grad of the 51 who had chosen as their class motto the awe-inspiring line, "The Aids to Noble Life Lie All Within," Reminding his audience that each had been born in a period when the first American soldiers were shot in France and a great man spoke of the "War to End All Wars," the Rev. Father Heintz spoke on the ills of today's world and the importance of education of the type offered by his Alma Mater. The speaker said we owe an apology to our children and our grandchildren for the mess we are handing them, but stated it is not too late to remedy the situation if we will develop a sense of real appreciation for what we do have. Father Heintz is located at St. Isadore parish at Bethany, 111. Charles Harris, who lives in Kirkwood, Mo., served as master of ceremonies. He reported that he was happily married and was ready to boast of his 10 children until he found he was outranked by Leo Spaulding. Leo now lives with his wife and 12 children in Coxes Creek, Ky. Bob Sims, Alton resident, termed the class poet laureate in 1933, gave forth with the lines, "Roses are red, violets are blue, Leo has 12, I have 2."
