Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I've read your booklets on dating and nowhere does it tell HOW to kiss a girl. I am especially interested in the first kiss because I have not had it yet, but I'm expecting to try May 1st. In case you haven't guessed, I am a guy and I do not wish to get my face slapped. For starters, should I kiss the girl on the cheek or would that be chicken? If I aim for her lips, how can I be sure I'll hit dead centre and not get her chin or her nose? What should I do with my eyes? Open or shut? I prac- DEAR ANN LANDERS: For years I've been reading letters in your column from people who hate cigar and cigarette smoke in offices, buses, elevators, places, trains, etc. Some of the grip- ers insist that they are al- lergic. Others just plain don't like it. Why is it that no one ever complains to you about the sickening, nauseat- ing odor of perfume? I work in an office with two dozen women. At this very moment I am border- line sick because two dames whose desks are within 20 feet of mine are exuding fumes that are knocking me out. One odiferous creature reeks with a gardenia scent that is vile. The other lady sprays herself with a lily-of- fiw-v alley cologne every! twenty minutes. For good measure she shoots a few DEAR ANN LANDERS: We moved to this neighbor- hood because we heard it was friendly. Friendship always meant a lot to us.

He went to the people next door and asked 5f they would like to take up a collection from the other neighbors for flow- ers. They said they had never done such a thing before and shut the door. We never heard from them after that. We love this house and don't want to move. How does one cope with neighbors who are so cold and unfriendly? Feelings DEAR HURT: Customs vary, according to area, and perhaps the customs you took for granted in your previous neighborhood are unheard of here. Your neighbors have made it abundantly clear that they don't wish to be friend- ly so greet them casually when you meet and don't look to them for friendship.

Knits come on strong for fall By BERNADINE MORRIS New York Times Service NEW YORK On Seventh Avenue the calendar says its fall and winter. Hemlines hover around the knee. Figures are not distorted by bulky or un- wieldly cuts. And the key to the season is sweaters, just as it was in the Paris ready-to-wear collections few weeks ago. Not just sweaters, of course. But coats that look like sweaters, suits that look like them and dresses that are as supple and comfortable as any old pull- over. Mollie Parnis scored a tri- umph with a collection that was accessorized in the old legant couture manner but was as casual as sportsclcihes. The T-strap shoes and pumps were by David Evins, the sable carves, ostrich boas and caos raped like turbans were by Hubert Latimer. Latimer, who fas recently with Christian )ior-New York, has just join- ed the concern. Between the turbans and the sandals, Latimer provided a coat that looked as if it had been knitted no crocheted, with big stitches dresses that were said to be handknitted, cardigans that slipped over the loulders and were made in ither jersey or beads.

The organization, called Pen- itentiary Officers Woman's Auxiliary, was formed at a meeting April 18. The move came after wives had expressed their concern over the condi- tions under which their hus- bands work. Vera Folk, president of the new organization, said in a pre- pared statement that the group would meet on a regular month- ly basis.

New Delhi recently wit- nessed five days of violent demonstrations following re- ports that a student was com- pelled by "acute mental tor- ture" to jumo into a well and drown herself. Seventeen year old Prem Lata, a pretty and usually vi- vacious girl with dark eyes and long hair is reported to have told friends that Pushpa Wati, the school principal, was "persecuting" her since she was supposed to belong to a low caste and her parents were extremely poor. n and out or town At Saturday and again on May 12, men are needed to form a work party at Camp Okeekum in Fort Macleod for the girl guides and brown- ies annual clean-up. Men are asked to bring shov- els, saws, hammers, trowels and puttey knives; women are also asked to show up with paint brushes, cleaning rags, soap, etc. All volunteers are asked to please take their own lunch. V Members of Alpha Theta Rho Girls Club No. 1 will leave for Calgaiy on Friday to attend the Montana State Assembly.

Other girls attending are Beverly Stenbeck, Kan Sch- mied, Debbie Young; Deeny Young, Katherine Myers, Kelly Areshenko, Kath- leen Potts, Nora Argels, Kim McNab; Barbara Sallenbach, Teresa Baldry, Teresa Saunas, Sheryl Salmas and Michelle Callier. Accompanying the girls will ba their advisory officer Mrs. M. Snowden and Rebekahs at- tending will be Mrs. Ruth Myers, Mrs. E. Giacomazzi, Mrs. Amy Gflmour and Mrs. Pauline Hagerty. Among other things, Prem alleged that the principal re- fused to accept a gift of candy from her on the birthday of God Krishna, a popular Hindu festival. "You are of mean don't come near Miss Wati is reported to have told the girl. When Prem broke into tears, she was alleged to have been locked up for sev- eral hours in a room without food or water. The next day the girl's body was found floating in a well. RIOTING FOLLOWED This was the signal for a spell of serious rioting in parts of the Indian capital. Op- position parties including the rightwing Jana Sangh (Peo- ple's League) and the Repub- lican party staged big proces- sions and there was street fighting between the police and demonstrators in many areas. The opposition parties said social discrimination was res- jonsible for the girl commit- ing suicide and charged the government with indifference ths plight of poor people in :he lower strata of Hindu soci- ety. The latter were openly urged to set fire to govern- ment property. Within hours five govern- ment buses were burned. The public display of Prem's ashes further incited the rioting mobs. Only the arrest of Miss Wati and the institution of a judi- cial inquiry brought peace to the capital. Ironically, Judge M. K. Chawla who investigated tbe affair announced some days ago that there was no basis for the charge that Miss Wati had treated Prem harshly. Not a single witness came forward to substantiate tbe opposition 'charge that the low-caste girl was the victim of social discrimination. On the contrary, Judge Chawla said in his findings, each of Prem's classmates told him that Principal Wati treat- ed all students equally well. Miss Watt was acquitted hon- orably. The judicial findings are re- garded in political circles as a damaging indictment of par- ties like the Jana Sangh and the Republican party which have been cynically exploiting the grievances of low caste people. But there is little comfort for the Indian government in the findings since it only shows, as one columnist put it, that a big riot can be tormented even in the national capital on the basis of fanciful rumors. "All this only demonstrates how out of touch our govern- ment and ruling politicians are with the feelings of the so- called low said a pro- government MP. Though Miss Wall emerged from her ordeal unscathed, ths government is reported to have ordered a quiet investigation to find out if students belonging to low cas'es are treated decent- ly in all the capital's schools.
