With that, he brought out, ono hort dress after another, stari- ng with the strapless look in male fabric- It's not true the strapless is or the young he said. "When you get older, you lon't have so many bones in 'our back." Some designers have started the "cocktail dress" off in low cey-conservative black crepe, for instance. Sarmi offers his share of black numbers, but ho goes all Ihe way with a heavily jewelled strapless dress set with a rose. There's also a hi own chiffon which is clearly ultraformal. Sarmi uses the filmiest melal- lic material all the way through the collection. It looks lighler lhan chiffon. The slraighl-cul, full-length dress is hack, somelimes, mer- cifully splil up Ihe middle so hobbling is cut lo a minimum. "The chemise is back, but I don't understand it looking like a bag of said Sarmi. "It needs seaming." VANCOUVER (CP1 -The Vancouver militia will include a bil of lipstick and mascara in its spit-and-polish routine this summer. Col. Doug Anderson, Com- manding officer, has announced that 31 women will take part in the milita's lower British Col- umbia mainland reserve train- Ing and community programs. The women will be paid the same rate as the miiitamcn S1.80 an hour. The program is funded by a 510.3 million grant to the defence department under the government's ?85 mil- lion summer employment pro- gram. The women, Col. Anderson Anderson said, will work prim- arily in a Vancouver traffic sur- vey and in a community pro- ject, although others will take part in reserve training and a communications project. A total of job openings for B.C. students will be avail able in militia programs thii summer. "You could say the army haL gone a little women's com- mented the colonel. Irnorted by thn HIRE A STUDENT CAMPAIGN COMMITTEE Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: What would you do? Imagine vourself as the principal character in the following situation: You arc of no set age. You can be either male or female. You have a cleft palate, known more commonly as harelip. n other words, you have a speech impediment caused by a ongenital defect. You are enjoying an evening with friends jid someone suggests turning on TV to see "his favorite omedian." Suddenly he's on the screen telling a joke about "this og with a'harelip that barks funny." Would you try to hide our embarrassment by laughing? Would you leave the room o spare the others discomfort? Can you imagine anything so eedlessV cruel as this kind of ridicule. Well, how about the ext grabber? Another TV show this "hilarious" skit involves a stutter- jr and a victim of cerebral palsy. The comedian plays both rarts He does it to perfection the labored facial ranter- ions, the tangled utterances, the spastic arm and hand roove- nents. It was a masterful imitation. But can you imagine he anguish this skit must have produced from coast to coast? Vhat about the victims who were watching? Their families? Then after the stutterer has painfully picked his way through a mrticularly 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 .n the country, will 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 )lows to handicapped people. Please help, Ann Landers. iargo, Florida DEAR L: I am firmly behind your campaign to do some- thing about the cruel insults to the handicapped. Readers, will you help us? Clip this column and send it to the president of .he network of your choice. Here are the names and addresses: Julian Goodman, president of N.B.C., 30 Rockefeller Plaza, New York, N.Y. 10022. Charles Ireland, president of C.B.S., 51 W. 52nd Street, New fork, N.Y. 10022. Elton Rule, president of A.B.C., 1330 Avenue of the Ameri- cas, New York, N.Y. 10022.

DEAR ANN LANDERS: A friend of mine (woman in her 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: Is it possible that the job was done so skillfully that even a doctor could not see the telltale scars behind the ears and up into 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 to you about things that bother them. May T add my complaint, please? Whenever I find myself at a place where women gather, the. first tiling that happens is, out comes ills pictures from the purses. "This, is my daughter and lur four Or, "We have new pictures of our grandchildren. Here is Louise, next to Richard. The one in front is Lester. Doesn't he look like his It's bad enough when I know the family but when a stranger corners me with snapshots I could scream. Why would a person you've never seen before (and will probably never see again) show another stranger pictures of her family? Before 1 leave on a cruise this fall, I'm going to take a picture of the. dogs nnd cats in the neighborhood and carry them in self defense. When a woman hands me pic- tures of her grandchildren I'm going to hand her mine. Would this be Header DEAR. PITT; Wrong? No. Hut don't be surprised if you got some complimcnls.
