Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Please tell me what Is happen- ing in our society to make everyone so weight- and calorie- conscious? I've had women who arc darned near strangers (ell me they lost four Inches last month. This morning the elevator operator confided between the first and fifth floor that she has lost five pounds. The guy whose desk is behind me asked me this noon what I usually dream about. When I told him, "None of your he looked surprised and said, "I dream about strawberry shortcake." This afternoon at about 3 o'clock I felt a little weary so I went to tho vending machine and bought a candy bar. The woman whose desk is across from mine looked up and said, "You don't need that. A couple of carrots would be a lot better for you." I told her they don't sell carrots in the hall. Ste suggested I bring some from home. I lost my cool and said I wasn't interested in a lecture on nutrition. She snapped back, "The people who need it never are." Please explain this sudden interest from the health nuts. Not Starving DEAR NOT: These people aren't so nuts. We've learned a lot about nutrition these past 20 years and it's helping to prevent heart attacks and other diet-related diseases. Women who starve themselves for vanity's sake are balmy, but it's smart to eat sensibly, exercise regularly and watch your weight. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'll come right to the point and hope you will, too. Joe and I went together two years before we were married in a church. We talked about having a fam- ily. The idea appealed to him a lot in our courting days. "A boy for me and a girl for you" in fact he said he'd like three or four kids. Now, a year later, he says he's changed his mind. He claims his brother's kids make nim nervous. He has decided that we aren't going to have any children not even edopted ones. The thought of a life wthout a family upsets me terribly. I Jeel as if I have been betrayed. Whenever I tee tiny >nby I have to fight back the tears. Please help me. 23 and Miserable In Montana DEAR MONTANA: If you're miserable now, wait awhile. Your misery will grow with your resentment. Frankly, I don't see how you can find peace and contentment with this man. Discuss the problem with the clergyman who married you and ask him to guide you. There is a big difference between cold and cool. Ann Landers shows you how to play it cool without freezing people out, in her booklet, "Teen-Age Sex Ten Ways To Cool It." Send 50 cents in coin and a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope to Oils newspaper. Fashions for fall are sheer PARIS (AP) Andre Cour- reges, the man who designs "second skins" tor women, used to like his body stockings in heavy ribbed wool. Now they are sheer. His collection for fall and win- ter, shown today, was pure Courreges. This means vinyl and fake fur, visors and chunky toots, and the Courreges colors white, navy and yel- low. The look this season Is wear- able. Slightly flaring dresses have short sleeves and high waistlines. Courreges is proud of his new square armhqle, which fits into the coat "like a puzzle piece." Skirts, sometimes .soaring to three Inches above the knee, and A-line and slit up the front. In grey flannel or wool, they go with ribbed T-shirts and over-lhe-knee socks sticking out of vinyl boots. The "in" color lor these is pink. PANTS WIDER, CUFFED Women who otherwise might soon be hard put to find a pair of couture pants will be reas- sured to know they can count on Courreges. This season, his are, wider, straighter and cuffed. With them comes a short, tight battle jacket iji vinyl with mink balls. The orange pants have a white mink windbreak- er. The pink ones have a black. For dresses up occasions, Courreges would have you wear floppy crepe pants, a vinyl jacket, open of course, and nothing else. Otherwise, Courreges Is still in his junior prom period, with full skirts in feathers and paper roses, Jrills and ruffles and tiers of organza and little ball gowns fluttering with pink satin bows. WeelVhimsv Nobody believes her story RICHMOND, B.C. (CP) A. When Mrs. George McGovera goes shopping, clerks do a double take.

They're convinced that every- one's figure is a problem figure when it comes to fitting it into standard sizes. They've devised a system for custom-making master patterns that can be used to make ad- justments on commercial pat- terns. Mrs. Kay says, "Patterns are made for nice, average figures with no posture problems." They use charts to demon- strate how many variations are possible in figures that are os- tensibly the same size. Their master patterns are based on 22 measurements of a customer's figure. The finished master pattern costs and is printed on paper 10 times the weight of standard pattern tis- sue. Customers are advised to make a canvas dress from the pattern to be used for adjust- ments If their figures change. They are also advised to cut an- other pattern from the master to keep in reserve. The master is used with com- mercial patterns to show the sewer exactly where to make adjustments. Mrs. Tyler Is originally from The Hague, Mrs. Kay from Vi- enna. Both were trained in pat- tern design and drafting in Eu- rope, and both have taught pat- tern drafting. They formed their company, Ultimate Pattern Designs Ltd., in February.

(AP) Judith and Darrell Lindsley of Junction City, Ore., dissolved their three-year marriage without the services ot a lawyer. Tlwy paid in court costs and filing fees and saved the which the Oregon State Bar lists as a minimum lawyers fee in a divorce. Mrs. Lindsley, 34, handled the legal work herself. She went Into Lane County circuit court and tho judge granted the divorce, one ot (lie first wider Oregon's no -fault divorce Inw which took effect last October. The law trims red tape and eliminates tlio dogma which says cither husband or wife must be to hlnnw when n marriage fnlls. It is similar lo California's divorce Imv, which nl-lows couples to obtain a divorce for a filing fee and without tho services ot n lawyer. As in California, It kit ome tax filing "irreconcilable differences" as a basis for divorce. Jack Gilchrist, a 32-year-old Portland cost accountant, sells a do-it-yourself divorce kit for It contains legal forms, step-by-step instructions and treats uncontested divorce something like do-it-yourself income tax filing. "I tell everyone who calls I'm not a lawyer, I don't pretend to he a lawyer and I don't give legal Gilchrist says. "These kits give procedural guidelines for completely non-contested divorces. If both par-tics don't agree, If there are children involved, if there Is any amount of property Involved, I tell them to see an attorney." "Thoso Mis can bo cautions Jnck Holloway, executive director of the Oregon Stale Bar. "There arc too many things a layman doesn't know that could cause difficulty."
