Here arc some of the sal'em points of the collections: f.IVKNCHY: His signature tune is Ihr coal with tiny fluted sleeves worn indifferently over the daytime suit, dress or long-sleeved Elegance, not gimmickry A pink cardigan in cashmere, left, in the new length over a matching pink silk blouse and pleated speckled brown tweed skirt makes for a relaxed, young impression. Painter's smock in gray velvet plus a shirt in bright plaid silk plus a pleated red and gray tweed skirt are shown at right. These designs are from Saint Laurent Rive Gauche. Only appearances change Facelift doesn't always help By Dr. Lawrence E. Lttnib DEAR DR. LAMB - I am a career woman in my 60s and think that'a facelift might help me in my work. Would you please explain a little bit about this operation, such as the amount of time one must be away from work and the results, the dangers at this age, the length of the operation and any other information you might have? DEAR READER Whether or not a person should have a facelift is an individual matter. The best reason for having one is pure vanity Because a person wants to look better. In our age-const.otis society it's also helpful u some people in b u s i n e s s and professions which phite a premium on youth. One of the problems of facelifts is that people often expect too much. It may make the face look younger but it's not going to change what's inside the skin. The body will still be the same age. A lovelier you. Nevertheless, if it improves a person's appearance and he is pleased with 'this change, it may affect his personality favorably. Older individuals who are still full of life and think young are sometimes handicapped by a decrepit look of old age caused by the wrinkling and sagging,of the face. For these people a facelift is often beneficial. Not all faces are improved by such surgery. In general a face that sags or hangs in folds is apt to be improved, whereas a face that has a lot of fine wrinkles, particularly those running up and down the face, is not so apt to be improved. There are several different techniques for a facelift. In general I think the technique that removes the skin next to the hairline without pulling the hair back is the best. If the distance between the hairline and the eyes, mouth and nose is changed by pulling the scalp back, it changes the appearance of the face, making it larger in proportion to the hairline. Also this limits the number of facelifts that can be done or the amount of skin that can be removed. In general facelifts are not cl a n g e r o u s. They are s o m e t i m e s mildly un- comfortable. How long it takes a person to recover depends on how extensive the facelift is. If it's just the lower face, not involving work around the eyes, tbe face will look rather well within two weeks. A woman can use cosmetics and, by the way she arranges her hair, literally obscure the incision marks. The face will retain some excessive swelling, however, which will give it a fatter appearance for three to six months. The feeling that your face is really your own will not occur for as long as one year after the surgery. If surgery is done on the lower eyelids to remove the bags under the eyes, the eyelids may not regain their normal function for at least three months and sometimes nearly a'year. The best thing for you to do is to have a consultation with a plastic surgeon who does coesmetic surgery. Your family physician may 'be able to find one for you or, if for one reason or another you don't wish to do it that way, you can request help from the county medical society. evening gown in vivid color combinations. His suits have swinging pleated skirts and easy-fitted longer jackets. Coats vary in length. For evening he shows infanta dresses worked in great chessboard squares alternating velvet and taffeta. Over these spectacular gowns go flowing evening coats, usually sleeveless. PATOU and FERAUD: These collections were voted the youngest in the season's crop. Ctoma at Jean Patou concentrated on a "Gigi-up-to- date" line — gay, pinafore dresses, soft and full, sometimes with a deep collar, worn over long-sleeved shirts in black satin or a contrasting color. He resolutely endorsed the feminine evening dress. Feraud, on the other hand, did some amusing piping work on his red, white or navy day ensembles with flared skirts and fitted jackets. LANVIN: This collection by Crahay was a lot of color and amusing ideas. Extra wide, extra large plaid pants were shown with brief jackets with wide reverse or maxi coats. His evening line is spectacular with ultra - wide "volume dresses" made of a double cape in sheer fabric or a princess sheath with a deep fringe of swaying rooster feathers. DIOR; The leitmotif was the order of the day in Marc Boh'an's collection — r e v e r- sible wool or gray flannel faced with fuchsia, orange, vermilion and a new Dior blue, usually repeated in the soft brimmed slouch hats. Bohan endorsed the long and shorter fox stole dyed in autumn shades for daytime as well as evening wear. COURREGES: The man who swore five years ago that in no time at all women's wardrobes would be composed of practically nothing but pantsuits has succumbed to the feminine trend. He still shows pants but he also shows naive structured dresses with raised waistlines. CHANEL: Chanel's spirit only just hovered above the collection, which in essence, was changed but in details seemed to miss her magic touch. The fabric story here is still exciting. But the riot of flares and flounces and frills in the evening line were not quite up to the standard set by Coco. UNGARO: This designer, the youngest of them all, showed the greatest surprise collection. Instead of the beat of the tomtoms as in the past it was the soft lilt of a Strauss waltz that seemed to have inspired him this season. Young, slender, beautifully cut coats in white and pastels with the fullness gathered into a drawstring waist belt opened the collection. G R E S : Madame Ores' collection, ^hile small, was as eclectic as ever. Gowns' had subtle drapes inspired by Greece and daytime clothes were in color combinations that one sees nowhere else.

The Bermuda Triangle is an area of the ocean from where over a thousand people have been reported missing along with the planes or ships that carried them. It is an area contained within a triangle one side of which being a line drawn from Florida to Bermuda, the second side being a lien drawn from Bermuda to Puerto Rico, and the third back to Florida. The following being a typical example of what has happened: Wednesday afternoon, December 5,1945, five TBM Avenger torpedo bombers left Fort Lauderdale, Fla. on a routine patrol. They were to fly due east for 160 miles then north for 40 miles, then back southwest to the air station. They were to fly 215 mph, the patrol lasting two hours. They left at 2:02 p.m. At 3:45 p.m. the following message was received. "Calling tower, this emergency. We seem to be off course. We can not see land. . . repeat ... we cannot see land." "What is your position?" the tower radioed back. We're not sure of our position," was the reply. "We can't be sure where we are. We seem to be lost." "Assume bearing due west," the tower instructed. The flight leader then answered. "We don't know which way is west. Everything is wrong. . . strange. We can't be sure of any direction. Even the ocean doesn't look as It should!" At this time the sky was clear and the weather good. The pilot and crew of each plane were experienced fliers. The situation was ludicrous. During the next few minutes the tower on Sept. 10.

Cooling It Many of the organic make- ups and beauty products will keep longer if you store them in the refrigerator. Especially during the summer, they will be less likely to turn rancid or separate. Chemise is not a coverall By M,\RY SI j; Mll.U.K Overheard on a bus. as Lovely speaks to iirencl: "I just boiJtihi a chemise. Hut. even though the drev lianas straight as a die. my hips look he;<\\ The suit- is nu coverall." A properly cut chemise skims ihe figure, it never snugs or tents your silhouette. Successful wearing requires a u ell-proportioned body and above average carriage. If the lines of your hips, abdomen and thighs are too generous, one exercise can bring the whole thing into neat measurement. It's done with this routine: Sit on floor and bend knees up to chest, so that feet leave floor. Swing both knees a bit to right of body and at same time swing both arms to left of body at shoulder level. Now thrust legs straight out to right, then quickly draw them back to chest position. Next, thrust legs to left and arms to right. Alternating, repeat 10 times without stopping. Work for continous, rhythmic motions. Be sure to keep back straight, stomach pulled in and head erect. There's more: For speedy results you must add two counts each day until you reach 31). Sounds hard? It is not easy, but much less taxing than performing three separate routines which are usually required to reach the same goal.

ANN LANDERS: I am not calling you "dear" because you are not dear to me. I think it was just rotten of you to bum-rap motorcycles. I was going to get one for my 16th birthday until you stuck your ugly nose into it. Now it's off. Any fool knows that a motorcycle is just as safe as a bike, which I've been ridjng since I was ten years old without an accident. Isn't it about lime you retired? — MAD IN YONKERS DEAR MAD YONK: Thanks for the love note. Here's another opinion: DEAR ANN: Bless you for. that well-timed column on the dangers of motorcycles. The following oay the Monroe, Mich. Evening News printed a story which reported ten motorcycle fatalities over the weekend — nine were riding motorcycles or were passengers on a cycle. The tenth was a seven-year-old girl who was struck by one. — N.W. OFM. DEAR N.W.: Thanks for letting me know. Here's another: DEAR ANN: I don't want to be a killjoy, but there must be some way of taming the users of motorcycles. They are a menance not only to their riders but to everyone else on the highways. I shudder to see the numbers increase. — J.H.B. (BOSTON) DEAR J.H.B.: Right you are. I welcome suggestions. DEAR ANN: As a member of the Medical profession I commend you for answering "NO" to the mother who asked whether to allow her daughter to ride with her boyfriend on a motorcycle. Almost every physician has worked in a hospital emergency room at some time during his career. There he sees the motorcycle riders — good ones, bad ones, cautious ones, careless ones, and quite frequently he sees the rider who was not at fault, but. is, nevertheless, maimed for life, or dead. I believe most physicians would agree that this sport is comparable to playing Russian riulette. If only one tenth of the parents who read your column will take it to heart, you will have prevented thousands of injuries and preserved hundreds of young lives. —TAMPA M.D. DEAR TAMPA: One of your colleagues, a fine dermatologist in San Francisco, did not write. He is still too heartsick to think about motorcycles. His only son, a brilliant young teenager, was killed on one two years ago. Thank you all for writing DEAR ANN: This is what happened the other evening and I want your opinion. A mother and her two small children were at the supper table. Guests were present. The younger child .asked, "Mommy, can I have the strawberries on your shortcake? I love them so much." The mother replied, "No. I love them too, and I am going to eat them myself." The child was crushed. 1 felt so sorry for him. What d'j you think about such a mother? — CHICAGO Dear Chic: I think we need more mothers like that. Toe many kids today have th< idea they should have everything they see. As often as not they don't even want what they ask for. Parents who cater to the whims of their children because they believe it's the way to make kids happy — selfish adults in our midst are those kids of yore who never confused. The conversation progressed from bewilderment to fear, verging on hysteria. Shortly .after 4:00 p.m. the flight leader suddenly turned over flight command to another pilot. At 4:25 the new flight leader reported, "We are not certain where we are. We think we must be about 225 miles northeast from XS^ST ' '" ^ ™ ** »* ™ SOUnded and ™ mn a few to receive.

Mirror of your mind By JOHN CONWELL Eastham-Kopsie vows The Main Street Methodist Church in Alton was the scene of the wedding of Miss Michelle Sue Kopsie of Alton and Robert Lee Eastham Jr. of Alton The ceremony was MKS. EASTHAM performed at 7:30 p.m on Aug. 18 by the Rev. Ira Thetford. A reception was given afterward in the American Legion Hall in Alton. The bride is the daughter of Mrs. T. M Haniford Sr. of 1312 State St., Alton, and the late Charles F. Kopsie. The brdiegroom's parents are Mr. and Mrs. Robert L. Eastham Sr. of 228 Arbor Dr. The briide wore a gown of chantilly lace with a chapel train. Her veil was attached to a white satin star shaped headpiece. She carried a bouquet c.f white roses and lily of the valley. Her attendent was Miss Susan Shane. She wore powder blue embroidered organdy gown and carried multi-colored spring flowers. The bridegroom's attendent was Raymon Buchholz. Guests were seated by Charles Kopsie and Ronald Eastham. The bride is a graduate of Alton High School. Her husband attended the same school and is serving with the Armed Forces. The couple will make their home at 525 Ridge St. Can a wife live on promises? 2S* <'\ .» IF they are her husband's promises to do better as a husband and a provider, yes, a wife could have the will and the desire to make a success of their marriage (most wives do that every day). A wife doesn't even have to expect to see those promises come true. She u happy that her husband loves her enough to want to please her. Nor does a wife want her husband to "suspend" happiness until he can deliver those promises. Do good politicians 'give 'em hell'? NO; "born" politicians have an instinct for attacking issues, nol people — not even their most bitter opponents. Admittedly, there aren't many politicans like this. That isn't because there is a scarcity of people with such qualities. It is just that most individuals who do have such a flaiir in dealing with others are usually in other fields, where the rewards in person il satisfaction are more evenly balanced with the risks and the attacks involved. Has the last child 'got it made'? NO, although it may look as if the baby of the family should have an easier time as a child than his brothers and sisters. His parents might relax their resolve not to spoil their children and will pamper their last child. And a last child can learn from his brothers and sisters. Quite often, however, that can be the trouble. His older brothers and sisters can be models whom the youngest in the family- spends a lifetime trying to emulate or outdo.
