"I know heart patients who are scared to death half the time because they can't tell whether they are sick or well." Heart Beats Mrs. Scherr says she is pre- sently working on a necklace which would, monitor heart beats and print out readings in color. She said sJie is negotiating to have the body-monitoring designs manufactured com- mercially and estimated the transistorized bracelet and pendant would cost between and each.

SE Phono 363-9634 Society Features Wirephoto Among the women chosen by Los Angeles fashion designer Mr. Blackwell as the worst dressed women, of 1973 are Betty Midler, left, and Princess Anne. A man also made the list this year. He is rock star David Bowie. 'Worsf Dressed Wo men' and Man By Linda Dcutsch.. LOS ANGELES (AP) Singer Bette Midler is No. 1 on Mr. Blackwell's list of the 10 worst dressed women of 1973. No. 10 is a man: Rock music slar David Bowie. For only the second time in 14 years of issuing the list, Blackwell included a man. The designer, explained, "If they want to face the public as a woman, they deserve to make the list." He described Bowie as "a cross between Joan Crawford and Marlene Dietrich doing a glitter reviv- al of 'New Faces.'." Milton Berle The other man who made the list in another decade is love is... taking time to listen to ii child. comedian Milton Berle. Berle dressed as a woman on his weekly television show to earn that title. The 1973 list also includes such persons as Britain's Princess Anne and Jacqueline Onassis. Blackwell, saving his most cutting remarks for Miss Midler, told a news confer- ence in the drawing room of his mansion Thursday, "She looks like she took politick in a laundromat. "Unlike Phyllis Dillcr, who worked at being bad, Bctte Midler loves her said Blackwell. "She is really tak- ing it seriously. She has put the worst of nostalgia to- gether. Nothing really looks right on her. "I don't know where she got that push-up he added. "That went out years ago." He said ho judged her per- sonal wardrobe rather than her stage costumes. T-Shirts The worst dressed, named by Blackwell in order of rank- ing from one lo 10, were: Miss Midler, Princess Anne, actress Racqucl Welch, tennis star Billie .lean King, Mrs. Onas- sis, actresses EIke Sommcr and Sarah Miles, -the Andrews sisters, actress Liv Ullman and Bowie. The designer criticized Mrs. Onassis for her casual ward- robe. "I'd like to see her in a dress. I'm tired of worth of he eluded. He called Princess Anne's wedding dress dull and dc- c I a r c d she "makes her mother, the queen, look fash- ionable, and that takes some doing." Miss Welch, who was No. 1 on the worst dressed list, last year, dropped to No. 3, but not because Blackwell liked her taste any better. "She looks worse, but she's become less he said. To dilute the sour taste of his worst dressed awards, Blackwell added a list of lad- ies who deserve plaudits for being "fashion independents." lu this category he chose: Liza Minnclli, Rose Kennedy, Ann-Margrct, Princess Caro- line of Monaco, models-ac- tresses Paula Tale and Mari- sa Bercnson, Mrs. Henry Ford II and Mrs. Fred Dayman, the wife of a Beverly Hills store owner.

Her choices Thursday for the 18-member compliance review commission still leave nine members to be selected. The remaining three posts were filled automatically, going to herself, as chairman of the party's reform commission, ant her two vice-chairmen, Mayor Richard Hatcher of Gary, Ind. and Alex Seith of Chicago. New Politics Over-all, observers vievvec Mikulski's choices as leaning to the "new politics" rather than .he old, but not being extrem- ists. Chosen by Mikulski, who is also Baltimore city council- woman, were Karrin Patman, a Texas reform Democrat and daughter-in-law of Texas Rep. Wright Patman; Phyllis Segal, a young lawyer who did the legal groundwork that helped many women become convention delegates in 1072; Aric Taylor, a black woman member of the Colorado state legislature; Angela Cabrera, a Puerto Rican, of Brooklyn, N.Y., and Scan Downey of Alexandria, Va., the son of singer Morton Downey.

International Romance The international romance started when Boris sat at her table in a Leningrad airport coffee shop in 1968. Charlotte was returning to America through Russia atter a two- year tour as a Peace corps volunteer in Uganda, East Africa. "We talked for about an hour. I Ihought he was very interesting, then I got my plane and flew away." In a daily journal she kept, Char- lotte wrote, "Boris is a beauti- ful man." Boris, a Muscovite then studying architecture in Len- ingrad, repaid the compliment, and commenced a six-year love affair by mail that bios- somed last April when Char- lotte returned. "Boris and I had a beautiful month she said., "We traveled around Ihe counlry, visiting his friends, museums. He's an artist, you know. "Then we applied to get married and right away I was asked to leave the country. My visa was canceled and I was called 'into the Intourist office. Four or five people questioned me in a very bad way. They kept accusing me of lying. Finally they gave me three hours to leave the country." Charlotte, who speaks some Russian, said she is willing to live in the Soviet Union if that is the only way she can marry Boris. But she said she has repeatedly been refused a visa to return for any reason. And ordinary Soviet citizens are not permitted to travel out of the country, she noted. "It seems that the Soviet Union doesn't like its citizens to marry Char- lotte concluded. their "spiritual and protests: "We are divided, like Lenin- j MV Poinl is this- would likc grad's bridges by the river of !to let lno Publlc know of the tears and pain, but all of this !health involved in pub- made us more determined, we transportation.
