Consider, he says, that with one large elephant you're dealing with a height of seven-and-a-half feet and four ions of flesh. Nancy Eller Is Married DEAR ABBY; I am an 18- year-old girl who has been married two years. (I lost the baby lhat I was pregnant with when 1 got married and can't have any more.) Like most couples, Bill and I have our fights and when we do I call up my folks and men- tion it and they drive right down to "rescue" me. They live 300 miles away, and by the lime they get here I've cooled off and so has Bill, but they make me go home with (hem to think things over anyway. They treat me like a child not a grown woman. They're hoping I'll leave Bill for good because they never wanted me to marry him in the first place. He does run around on me sometimes, but he was iinly 18 when we got married and I was the on- ly girl he ever had, so maybe he just has to get it out of his system. I sure wish my folks would quit trying to talk me into leaving Bill. I really love him. I feel like I'm being pulled in two directions. I'm home now, wishing I was back with Bill. I'll take any advice you can give me. MISERABLE IN KANSAS DEAR MIS: If you're being "pulled in two directions" you're asking for it whether you realize it or not. In responding to your calls, your folks understandably think you're asking for help. But if you really love BUI, quit whining to your parents every time you have a fight and get some professional counseling. DEAR ABBY: My hus- band's secretary has given him many costly gifts, rang- ing from travel accessories to art during the two years she has worked for him. Some of the cards she has enclosed with these gifts have been embarrassingly person- al. I feel certain she is pursu- ing him, although he says he thinks I'm mistaken. This young woman is di- vorced and has two children, and I know she could put her money to better use than buy- ing gifts for my husband. And I wish she would. How- do wt- let her know? IN N..I. DEAR PUZZLED: This is not a job for "we" your husband should handle it alone. And, if he really wants to discourage further Rift giv- ing, he will toot sweet!

Ho has to In his job us chief designer for (lie "The Greatest Show on There's the mutter of the glittering rainbow of blankets for the circus elephants. Consider, said Foote. that with one large elephant you're dealing with a height of seven and one- half feet and four tons of flesh. 1 asked. "So how do you design for an Said Foote, "First you get four men First, You Start with Actually, he explained, you start with the elephant handler who gets the animal to crouch. Then each of the four takes a corner of the 1-1 or so yards that go into a blanket. They hold on while the elephant gets back to her feet so they can check how the blanket drapes. Then he and the sewing staff begin to put in darts and make other adjustments. For elephants, like people, come in assorted sizes and shapes. Costuming horses is less of a problem simply because they're smaller. But Foote recalled that once he costumed horses as giant roosters for one of the super-production numbers, even to hoods that looked like rooster combs. The rear horses, seeing the lead horse in the getup, became rest- less and their costumes began shifting. "By the time of the parade around the said Foote, "they looked like they were all drunk." Frightened Camels Once he put camels in headdress copied from the be- douins but "it frightened the camels to death." Henceforth, he has stuck with tasselled and jewelled blankets. "The camel is so exotic, it's really not necessary to get said Foote. "I feel the same way about a lot of the animals. You wouldn't put anything on a llama or a zebra. They're so beautiful as they are. The same way with the cats (lions, tigers, 1 like all animals and carry treats when I'm working with them." Cats are the exceptions in handling "even if I did only a jewelled collar for a cat on a he said, "I'd let the trainer fit it." Foote, a native of Rochester, N. Y., for the last five years has been chief wardrobe designer for the Ringling Bros, and Barnum Bailey circuses. (There arc two units on national lour most of the year.) He studied at the Chouinard Art and Design school in Los Angeles and worked as sketch artist and designer for ice shows and television before joining Ringling. Design and Production The job sounds almost as difficult to visualize as a three- ring circus itself the design and production of some 600 lavish costumes each year for people and animals. Costuming costs around million for each new show, Foote said. The wardrobes are put together by a staff of some 100 tailors, seamstresses, milliners, wig makers and em- broiderers at the Brooks-Van Horn studio in Manhattan. Footo's job is practically year-round, although the circus- es head for winter quarters in Venice, Fla., in early De- cember. Then, he said, the real work begins fittings and touchups before the troupes begin the trek north in late Jan- uary. Ultimately, next year, in which the circus salutes the na- tion's bicentennial, there will be 000 performances in 300 cit- ies. "Sometimes three performances a said Footo. "Packing and unpacking. There's a lot of wear and tear. We go through tights and sequins like mad. "Some animals che'w things up loo. Camels are particu- larly fond of ostrich plumes." Society for Women Features Woman Priest Defies Order, Conducts Communion Service WASHINGTON (AP) The Rev. Allison Cheek of Annandale, Va.. has defied a bish- op's orders and become the first wnniiin to conduct a communion service at an Episco- pal Church in the United States. The Rev. Mrs. Check held the service Sun- day at St. Stephen and the Incarnation Epis- copal church here. The service was held in defiance of orders from the Rt. Rev. William F. Creighton, bishop of the Episcopal diocese of Wash- ington. Ordination Invalid The Rev. Mrs. Cheek was among 11 wom- en elevated to the priesthood last July during a service in Philadelphia. The denomina- tion's House of Bishops declared the orclina- lions invalid. Some of the women and their supporters have protested the action. After the service Sunday; they all sang "A Mighty Fortress Is Our Martin Lu- ther's 16th Century hymn of rebellion from the established church. "The spirit and the gifts are ours." As they sung, the Rev. Allison Cheek stood on the altar of St. Stephen and the Incarna- tion church. Her act of defiance was to recite the words "the gifts of God for the people of God." Many of the worshipers, veterans of the religious left's struggle for radical reform in both church and society, had tears in their- eyes as the priest pronounced Jesus' words from the Last Supper in which lie told the disciples the bread and wine on which they were dining were His body and blood. The consecration of the bread and wine is the most holy act performed by a priest. She and the Bcv. William Wendl, who rs had ignored a request not 10 have the service. intend to "take any action of a Allure because I do not believe any sue action would make a positive contribution to the solution of our present dilemma. Good Words The Rev. Mr. Wendt called Bishop Creighton's statement "good words from a holy man." But he said the bishop, 'like all of was "imprisoned in a structure of a church which had replaced the authority of the gospel with that of canon law. The Rev Mrs. Cheek, along with 10 other women deacons in the 3.2 million-member church, was ordained into the priesthood at a service in Philadelphia last July. The Church's House of Bishops met two weeks later in a Chicago motel lobby to over- rule the ordinations as irregular and invalid. At their regularly scheduled meeting in Oc- tober, the bishops said they favored the or- dination of women "in principle" hut did not regularize or recognize the ordination of the 11. Three Celebrated On Oct. 27, three of them, including the Rev. Mrs. Cheek, celebrated communion at a non-Episcopal church in New York. Wendt said Sunday that when lie read the Bible he did not hear Jesus saying "wait for the general convention" before an action could be taken.
