That leaves the calf, dependent on the midi length, out in the cold. Here are some quickie reducers for the needy calf line. 1. Repeatedly come up onto your tiptoes and then lower heels to the floor. Work for a slow, smoth rhythm and a maximum upward stretch, for one minute. 2. Sit on the floor and draw your knees up until the soles of your feet lie flat. Leading with the heel of your right foot, quickly slide your right leg downward so that the calf jounces along the floor. Pull the leg back to starting position and repeat with the left leg. Alternating sides, perform for one minute- Be brisk. .3. Sitting with your legs straight and as far apart as possible, very slowly drag them along the floor until they touch. Then reverse directions until the legs are again apart. You do it right when the floor "massages" the calves. Two minutes is not too much. Simply for the tune-up value, place one foot on the side of the bathtup and slather body lotion on the entire length of the leg. Now, firmly cupping your hands around your ankles, slowly draw the hands along the sides of your legs, the tops and undersides. Give the other leg same treatment. LEGLINE TRIMMERS If your individual problem is heavy legs, send for my new leaflet, LEGLINE TRIMMERS, which contains spot reducing exercises that will meet your individual needs, whether for thighs, knees, calves or ankles, or for contouring your entire legiine. Write Mary Sue Miller in care of the Alton .Evening Telegraph, enclosing a long, stamped, self- addressed envelope and ten cents in coin. By CHIP TOLBERT The news about fall suits is not, repeat NOT, wildly exciting. Aren't you glad? 1 am. 1 can't knock the innovation and excitement of '60s fashions when new ideas came and went with the speed of light, because it brought us out of a set of doldrums we'd been carrying around for years. But it is nice to know that the cut of a suit is now pretty much stabilized, and that new details are meant only to update, not outdate everything we own — which is the only sensible way to build a wardrobe. And, everything contributes to the freedom of choice, t*ie variety, that spells fashion Iw the '70s. The cut of that suit, is principally single • breasted, shaped, with two buttons and a center vent. But there will be more side vents seen, and fewer "fancy backs" and sporty pocket treatments. And for all you die-hards cut there, there's some new interest in three-button models with somewhat less shape anr 1 softly padded shoulders — taut not enough for you »o resurrect your old "Ivy League" suits out of the trunk, believe me. Not even with the resurrection of gray flannel as one of this foil's favorite fabrics. Believe it or not, a lot of these flannel "looks" will be available in the double knits you've all taken to yoiir hearts, along with double knit: checks, tweeds, twills, and solid colors. Other flannel looks will be in bright navy, medium blues that approach the color of an Air Force uniform, and plaids that range from quiet to bold. Muted, mossy or bottle greens will also be good, but must be carefully chosen to complement your complexion, yo that the color isn't drained out of your face. Look for a return to the vested suit — not the veit that's squared, top and bo*.- tom, like the ones now bevig shown in European designer collections, but the regulation, double-V'd vest we all remember. And let's get it right, this time: under NO circumstances should your shirt or belt show underneath your vest — it must cover both the waistband of your trousers and your belt—something to keep in mind when you're being fitted for one of the new fall suits.

(AP Wirephoto) Love is the greatest sift DEAR ANN: Physicians and lawyers must earn their academic cerdentials bef i,e they can hang out their shingles. We don't send a pre- m e d student into ilie operating room to perform brain surgery. Why then do we expect inexperienced, untrained people to know how to raise children? I suggest a required course in all high schools. Surely raising children is the most important job most of us have. Yet how many of us are qualified? Doesn't it make sense to get some instruction instead of perpetuating mistakes from one generation to another? The-e doesn't the message? What are yiur views, Ann? — M.C. IN M.

Bfrth announcements problems that make a person moody do seem lighter if the burden of them can be shared. Are all egotists unbearable?
