Avenues of fashion Alton Evening Telegraph Friday, August 25, 1972 A-0 Fashion news from Paris Predictions by Cerutti Prophetic fashions from the Paris collection of Antonio Cerutti include (left) a gray brushed denim suit whose brown windowpane plaiding is neither printed nor woven, but embroiderod on, worn with a gray plaid shirt and shiny browti chintz tie. The outfit at right is a black wool coat, double-breasted, and belted, with brown leather piping. Schwaninger-Allen nuptials MRS. SOHVVANINGER A lovelier you The Evangelical United Church of Christ on the Beltline was the scene of the wedding of Miss Janet Lyle Allen of Alton and 'David John Schwaninger o f Webster Groves, Mo. The ceremony was performed at 8 p.m. Thursday by Rev. Walter K r e b s. A reception was given afterward in the church Heggemier Hall. The bride is the daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Robert Lyle Allen of 16 Hebner Drive. The bridegroom's parents are Mr. and Mrs. Earl William Schwaninger of 461 Belleview, Webster Groves. The bride wore a gown of peau de soie satin with a fan like train. She carried a bouquet of red roses and baby's breath. Her attendents were Miss Marta Woodcock, maid of honor; and bridesmaid Miss Joan Cody Allen, sister of the bride. The attendants wore lavender and deep purple gowns and carried statice, 'baby's breath and carnation bouquets. The bridegroom's attendants were Charles Mills, best man; and the groomsman, Jim White. David Meisel, Galen Fletcher and Kent Allen, brother of the bride, served as ushers and candlelighters. The couple will honeymoon in Nassau in the Bahamas and will live at New Piasa Chautauqua, Elsah. The bride is a graduate of Alton High School and will attend Southern Illinois in University, Edwardsville, in the fall. Her husband is a graduate cf Webster Grvoes High School and has received a BA degree from SIU-E. By CHIP TOLBERT Enfi.n, or as the French say, "at last " we go back to Paris for the rest of the designer collection news. And the big, black headlines should read: "Cerrutl's Best Collection Ever!" since that it was. Although of Italian descent his( family's woolen mills are among the oldest and most respected in Italy), Nir.o Cerruti makes his headquarters in France, and his designs reflect a definite'y French feeling. His suit silhouette remains long and narrow, but with a marked change in proportions. Trousers are cut straight, with or without cuffs, and his jacketes, though cut close to the body, are shorter than they have been. Fabrics have a soft, thick, "country" look to them — flannels, brushed shetlands and tweeds, and felted jerseys in exactly matching colors — which gives them a uniform color effect even when sharply differing fabrics are combined. He likes classic, neutral shades spiked with bright red, blue or apple green in accessories like shiny chintz ties with an almost patent-leather look. He uses a lot of wide contrasting piping, both on blazers and loosely cut, reglan sleeved outercoats; some of his blazers even have contrasting lapels with piping or braid in still a third color. Cerruti continues to use his favorite satin-striped fabrics for evenng wear, combined with black gabardine trousers, and shows them with either white or thin, black diagonally striped shirts. Guy Laroche, with both ready-to-wear and custom- designed clothes on tap, is a man of action, and designs for himself and others like him. He likes the practicality of short car coats, and makes them in warm, lightweight, double-faced or reversible wools. His suit jackets are shorter, too, and he likes the "bat- tlejacket" look, cut just below the waist, with matching trousers. One of his best is in a brown, red and white herringbone, shown with a brown turtleneck pullover. Incidentally, for those of you who'd like to see and-or buy the real thing, Laroche plans to open franchised boutiques here in this country before long, while Cerruti's clothes are available in department store boutiques and men's specialty shops. Potholder Pair High-flying fabrics for fall By MARY SUE MILLER To say the least, Fall Fabrics '72, are diversified, ranging from sweater knits and soft challis to crisp taff- feta. To say the most, fabrics have a new interest and beauty, High-flying fashions! Surface interest appears to the eye and touch. Textures — brushed wools, deep-pile velvets, quilted prints, slubbed and nubbed silks — have a large audience. Ditto smooth surfaces like satin, flannel, serge and gabardine. Patterns delight and surprise by new approaches, dimensional geometries, pattern on pattern, floating designs take surrealistic turns. Plaids, patchworks, jockey checks are either reminiscent of grandma or as modem as tomorrow. Then there's chinoiserie — colorful luxe, old China. Color, singularly subtle, begins at ground level with autumnals — russet, earth browns, oatmeal, ochre, spruce and moss green, leafy gold, heather and plum. Soaring skyward, colors turn sky blue and red sky, cloud gray and cloud white, midnight black and midnight blue, and rosey dawn. As winer draws near expect procelain pales — mauve, powdered pink and blue, powdered lemon and lime. Flattery is implicit. So wide a range of colors and textures offers many somethings for everyone. Simply adopt "your thing," forsaking all others. The Telegraph will send bridal quest ionnaires on request. Wedding information received three days before the ceremony will be given preference in publication. Bride's photo should accompany information and will be returned to name and address on back of photo. (Picture used for first marriage only.) If information is received more than 10 publications after ceremony, a picture (if available) accompanied by cutlines will constitute wedding story. £&ffK# 890 You'll be flying on the fashion high.

You said in a column recently, "I have never believed in the Biblical line, 'An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.' If everyone practiced this philosophy we would eventually have a world of blind and toothless people." It is regrettable that this quote is widely misunderstood by a great many people, Jews included. "An eye for an eye" literally means that the punishment must never exceed the crime. This piece of legislation was revolutionary in a time when cruel and inhuman punishment was inflicted upon people who perpetrated minor offenses. Even in enlightened England, when a man stole a loaf of bread he was thrown in jail where he often languished until death. So you see, Ann. this precept is acually a relatively compassionate piece of legislation, thousands of years ahead of its time. Thank you for setting the record straight - DR. JEROME KESTENBAUM (NORFOLK) DEAR DR. KESTENBAUM: I appreciate your interpretation of that frequently quoted Biblical line. Thank you for educating me. DEAR ANN: Yesterday afternoon at about 2:00 pm company arrived — unexpected and unannounced. My husband was lying down trying to take a nap. I was in the kitchen preparing food for 18 people who were invi'ed for the next day. These drop-in guests showed no embarrassment at inconveniencing u s . What burned me up more th'in anything was that my husband ofiered them the food I had prepared for the next day's company. They made hogs of themselves and practically wiped me out. After they left I had to clean up the mess and start cooking and baking again. I was in the kitchen until 11:00 pm. Now my husband isn't speaking to me. He says I humiliated him because I wasn't charming and hospitable. I'd like your comments. - MIFFED WITH MILTON IN MONTANA DEAR MIFFED: Husbands should keep their noses out of the kitchen unless they are doing the cooking and baking. Milton had no right to offer the food you had prepared for the following day. When people drop in unexpectedly, the helpless victims (surprised hosts) have no obligation to lay on a feed — or anything else. DEAR ANN: A few years ago my husband and 1 became friendly with a couple fun to be with. We saw a good deal of them, had a few trips together and became quite close. When they bought a house two blocks from us we were not very happy. To put it candidly, by that time we were sick of them. They wanted to be in on everything we did evcu family affairs where they were out of place. We tried to cool the relationship but they woulln't take the hint. They began to show up at odd hours of the day and night. Now we know they are crazy. We refused to answer the door last night when the;, came over. They knocked on the windows and harrassed us for one solid hour. Then the phone started to ring. We did not answer and they kept us up calling until 2:00 am. What can TARGETS we do — Wffitf* Out There Junior Woman's club president Mrs. William Brown of East Alton is the new president of the Wood River Junior Woman's Club advancing from the office of vice president to ffll the vacancy created by the resignation of Mrs. Gary Bane, who is moving to Springfield. Mrs. James Wiggins will serve as vice president. A native of Cambridge, England, she is a graduate of the Swavesey Village College and was employed as a reception* tit and bookkeeper for an engineering firm in Cambridge prior to coming to the United States. The new club year of the Junior Club will begin with a MKS. BROWN 7:30 p.m. meeting on Sept. 11 at the East Alton Vital Services building featuring Mrs. Lowell Kelley, an East Alton teacher, speaking on "Teaching Your Children to Spell." Events planned by the club include serving as hostesses to the annual fall potluck of the 22nd District of Junior Woman's Clubs on Sept. 28, a charity dance at the Godfrey Civic Center on Nov. 18 and the annual Santa Breakfast in December. Mrs. Brown and her husband, who is employed in the communications maintenance department of Illinois Bell Telephone, are th eparents of a son, Christopher. DEAR TARGETS: A frank talk is in order. Tell them you want to be left alone for a while. Be friendly but firm. If they continue to harrass you, have an attorney write them a letter saying you don t want to make their persistence a legal matter but if driven to it, you will do so.

Mirror of your mind By JOHN CONWELL $500 scholarship donated by the Junior Service League of Alton to the foundation for Illinois Archaeology. A junior student at the University of Illinois Chicago Circle campus, majoring in anthropology, he is working at the Koster site archaeological digs near Kampsville, under the scholarship grant. The son of Mr. and Mrs. Anton G. Carr of Chicago, he was selected by the directors of the Koster project for his scholastic achievement, his experience in the field and personal characteristics. The scholarship grant, giv- CHRISTOPHER CAKK en by Junior Service League from proceeds of its civic fundraising events, enables him to serve as a student supervisor at the Koster digs. Roller skating marathon winner Tami Yarborough, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. David Yarborough of 325 Thomas, Roxana, recently won the roller skating marathon contest at the Stardust Skating Arena in Bethalto. Tami, 7, who will enter the second grade this year at Burbank School in Roxana, has been skating less than a year and this was her first contest. The marathon started at midnight and ended with Tami the winner at 7:05 a.m. YARBOROUGH Are most gamblers conceited? YES; and that goes whether they are two-dollar bettors or real "plungers" — and they can either be devil-may-care wooers of Lady Luck or compulsive gamblers. The "square" gambler is conceited enough to think fortune is going to smile his waj; the compulsive gambler 's unconsciously and eternally hopeful that he will lose, while at the same time he thinks so highly of himself that he gives the impression he wants desperately to win. Can parents make a child fat? NO; overeating is what fattens up the youngster who ordinarily could keep his weight within manageable bounds. The child, however, might have been led down ihe gluttony path by his parents. His mother, for inslaiuv. might have been ove r ly solicitous when she saw her son suffer pain over rejection by his playmates. It was easy to assuage his hurt with goodies; and easier for him, thereafter, to seek solace in food at every disappointment. Duos status worry couples? must PKKHAPS it is not worry, although economic sccur'ty does concern every couple, especially those who know their standard of living cau change because of cir- circumstances beyond their control. The happy husband and wife, though, have other things on their mind than worry about how they compare with others in thoir neighborhood. They are too busy building their love together so that it will sustain Ihem whether their makTiul fortunes go down or up. Keep baby in playpen happy Although playpens offer convenience for the mother, make sure that the baby is equally satisfied with the playpen arrangement. Follow these suggestions to make the playpen a happy place f or your baby: — Don't wait until the baby has had the freedom of crawling around the house before you introduce him to the playpen. Start putting him in the pen when he's about four months old. —Play with the baby frequently once he's in the pen. Don't simply ignore him just because he's quiet. — Don't leave your baby in the pen for long periods of time or when he fusses to get out. Take him out before he becomes restless. — Be flexible and avoid making vour child remain in the pen for a definite time period every day. — Avoid using the pen as a "jail" to punish misbehavior. Such practice will probably cause your child to rebel against the pen later. — When the baby's obviously having a good time elsewhere, don't suddenly move him to the playpen. —Carefully select a variety of tops for the playpen, and change them when the baby grows tired of them. — Keep the playpen in the activity centers, whether in the house, the yard or the porch. A baby enjoys a change of scenery and the stimulation of other family members. $1.00 who seemed interesting and C 1*72 Klny l-Vuturcs Syndicate, Jtic.)
