"When you get older, you don't have so many bones in your back." Some designers have started the "cocktail dress" off in low key-conservative hlflck crepe, for instance. Sarmi offers his share of black numbers, hut ho goes all the way with a heavily jewelled strapless dress set with a rose. There's also a brown chiffon which is clearly ultraformal. Sormi uses the filmiest metal- lic material all the way through the collection. It looks lighter than chiffon. The slraifihl-cul, full-lengtl dress is back, sometimes, mer- cifully split up the middle so hobbling is cut to a minimum "The chemise is back, but don't understand it looking like a bag of said Sarmi "It needs seaming."

PI o z y m Tnirrlnf by Ilin HIRE A STUDENT CAMPAIGN COMMITTEE Ann Landers DEAR Ami LANDERS: What wculd you do? Imagine yourself is tire principal character in the following situation: You arc of no scl age. You can be eJ'hcr male or female. You have a cleft palate, known more commonly as harelip. In other words, you have a speech impediment caused by a congenital detect. You are enjoying an evening with friends and someone suggests turning on TV to see "his favorite comedian Suddenly he's on the screen telling a joke about "this dog will] a harelip that barks funny." Would you try to hide your embarrassment by lauglu'ng? Would you leave the room to spare the others discomfort? Can you imagine anything so needless'y cruel as this kind of ridicule. Well, how about the next grabber? Another TV show this "hilarious" skit involves a stutter- er and a victim of cerebral palsy. The comedian plays both parts. He does it to perfection the labored facial contor- tions, the tangled utterances, the spastic arm and hand move- ments. It was a maslerful imitation. Eut can you imagine the anguish this skit must have produced from coast to coast? What about the victims who were watching? Their families? Then after the stutlerer has painfuDy picked his way through a particularly long and difficult sentence, his friend's punch line was, easy for YOU to say." I am writing in the hope that you, the best-read columnist In the country, print this letter and ask your readers to demand that the networks not permit such sick humor. If enough people complain they can put an end to these brutal blows to handicapped people. Please help, Ann Landers.

DEAR ANN LANDERS; A friend of mine (woman in her mldHO's) dropped out of sight for about a month. She said she decided on the spur of the moment to take a trip to the Orient. No one received so much as a postcard from her. When she returned she looked ten years younger. She claims she had "a wonderful rest." A few of us are sure she had her face lifted. I decided to come right out and ask her. She replied, "Absurd. I did nothing of the kind." Then she offered to anyone who could prove otherwise. My question is this: Js it possible that the job was done so skillfully that even a doctor could not sec the telltale scars behind Ihe ears and up inlo the hairline? Please check with your consultants and let us know. DEAR U.C.: The consultants say no way. A surgical face- lift entails scars from the incisions. A woman who invites inspection in all probability is telling the truth. DEAR ANN LANDERS: People write lo you about things that bother them. May I add my complaint, please' Whenever I find myself at z place whore women gather, Hie. first Ihing (hat happens is, out comes Ihc picturfis from (lie piii-His.
