Monday, February 14, 1972 THE LETHBR5DGE HERA1D 19 A PROMISE FOR YOUR VALENTINE The newest way to say "I love is the promise ring; a miniature pre-engagemerU ring set with a liny diamond. It's a promise that a more substantial diamond will come when the iime is right.

If more people were aware of the help that is available to the compulsive gambler and his family, they would seek it. As one who has lived through hell I can tell you that a gambler's wife gets so desperate after a while she'll try anything. The basic philosophy of Gamblers Anonymous is pat- terned alter Alcoholics Anonymous. A.A. has proven that peo- ple who share a common problem give one another strength and encouragement. Meeting with folks who have been cured of a sickness is proof that it can be done. t feel as if my husband owes his life to Gamblers An- onymous. He thinks so, too. Please tell people. Thanks, Ann. Salvaged DEAR SAL: Here's your letter with an added word from me. Compulsive gambling is as much a sickness as arthritis and it can be equally crippling. Gamblers Anonymous has been the answer for thousands. I recommend it and hope your letter generates a zillion responses. DEAR ANN LANDERS: We are in our 30's and have two lovely little girls. years ago my husband was "side- tracked" and I found out about it. The hurt was more painful because the woman was a good friend of mine. I made up my mind to forgive my husband and never mention it again. I love him deeply and 1 didn't want to deprive my children of a father whom they idolize. It seemed like the only sensible thing to do and I'm sure I made the right decision. The problem is that my husband expects me to romin'Je to be friendly with the woman, and this is extremely difficult. I have refused. When we meet on occasions I try to be pleas- ant, but it's not easy. I fed she betrayed me and I will never get over it. I simply cannot so hypocritical as to invite her to our home and pretend that things are lovely between us. Do I have the wrong attitude? Please Need of Education DEAR IN NEED: Your husband is expecting a great deal from you considering lie was the transgressor. While some women are capable of carrying off the charade, if you find it difficult to do so lie should not insist. As for your friend's betrayal il took two to tango and you should not forget THAT, either.

EDMONTON (CP) A woman should go shopping for her perfume either alone or with a man. says beauly con- sultant Kathleyn Whillon. "Never go shopping for per- i fume with another woman. She'd just as soon have you smell like a cooked cabbage." Miss Whilton, who operates a cosmetic, and perfume shop called the Third Face, thinks women ought lo pay more at- tention to perfumes and wear them more often. "We should wear perfume to create an aura of beauty around us. not only for others The department is setting up an equal opportunity for women committee to make suggestions on carrying out recommenda- tions of a special report on the status of women in the depart- ment.

They will be given one-third of paid educa- tional leave in the department. Women with professional training will be recruited for part-time work with the depart ment She groups perfumes in four major types: neutral, stimu- lating, erogenic and tranquil- lizing. These four correspond with the four elements of as- trology: air (Aquarius. Gem- ini, earth (Taurus, Virgo, fire (Aries, Leo. Sagittarius) and water (Pisces, Cancer, A woman horn under one of the water signs should look for her perfume under those that are in the tranquillizing with pure, sin- gle-flower scents with gar- denia or rose bases or some- times with a sandalvvood base, she said. These might include perfumes such as Diorissimo, Chamade, Capricci or 1m- prevu. Neutral scents are those with lime or mint bases. Stim- ulating perfumes have spice bases and the erogenic scents, which please those bom under the fire signs, have musk, amber or jasmine bases. She is a very fastidious and aware of scents n d she prefers some of the Chanel perfumes, such as No. 5. This she calls "an intellectual perfume." She says she doesn't believe that a woman has to stick to one scent. But a perfume wardrobe should be selected from among the same types of bases. "Perfumes linger in the clothes, but they can comple- ment each other." USE INTUITION A woman also can wear a perfume that complements the outfit she has chosen, Miss Whilton said. Then the scent reinforces the mood she is trying to create. "On days when I need to be aggressive, I wear Chanel goes well with that." Other perfumes, especially those suited to the fire signs, such as Miss Dior, Quelques Fleurs or Je Reviens, are "cool." "They make me think of white-greens, of'lily-of-the-val- ley, for instance." When a woman is shopping for a perfume, she should rely on her subconscious, her intui- tion, and buy what she likes. Too many women were influ- enced by packaging, ads and the sales pitch. A woman should never shop for a perfume while she is ill or angry, said Miss Whilton. "The body takes on a differ- ent chemical reaction and it will affect the smell." Perfumes should be chosen to present an image of the woman at her best. "When the person is gone, the perfume will linger."
