Ann Lande rs Monday, November 8, 1971 IHE tETHBRIDGE HERALD Course for thinking models leaches basics of fashion By MAIt.HWIK WILD Hainiltim Spectator It is the brain child of Valer- ie-Jean Hume, 2C, of Toronto, who will direct it. DEAR READER; Several weeks ago I printed a Idler fi >ir a woman who said her life was ruinul of offensive odor she onildn'l get rid She made Ihe rounds ol nose specialists, cndocrinologisls, dermatologists gvnccul- I Sheridan College, iigisls-atid no one could explain it. fad, no one" could smell it. She said no friend or relslivc had ever mentioned the odor, but it was driving her crazy. I suggeslcd one more doelor-a ps'yehintrist. I told her that over the years 1 have received hundreds of letters from readers with Ihe same complaint. My consultants agree that when no physical problem exists the problem is psychologi- cal. These tortured people have a deep-seated fcolinp of word- lessness. The "odcr" Much no one else can smell is an ego-saving excuse to keep them away from people. It also explains (to them, at why no one wants to be around them. When the letter appeared I received over 500 "solutions." Here's a sampling: FROM WHEELING. Va.: The woman with tiie "odor" not sick-she is gifted. I, too, have Die ability lo smell things that no one else can smell. I can smell animals in the woods and birds flying overhead. I can also smell friends and acquaintances before they enter a room. 1 first realized I had this gift when I was four years old. f said to my mother. "Grandpa will be here soon." She aiked. do you I ansuercd, "I can smell him." Sure enough, in five minutes Grandpa arrived. Please loll the woman who wrote not to worry. She's exceptional FROM MARSHALL-TOWN', IA.: Tell the lady with the strange odor to cheer up and she will smell better. Scientists have proved that happy people give off a fragrant scenl. Negative brain waves (worry, anger, fear, anxiety) give off unpleasant odors. Animals can smell emotions but most peo- ple can't. FROM LA PORTE. LVD.: Ths woman who "Nose It All" should stop drinking coffee. The odor that is bothering her is the result of caffeine poisoning FROM JACKSO.V, MICH.: Tell to put a cup of sail in her bath water. FROM JUNEAf, ALASKA; Tell the lady to sleep with sure cure. FROM LOXDON. ONTARIO: Her trouble is not in her mind, Ann, it's in her nose. She should line her nostrils with vaseline every niglu when she goes to sleep. DEAR ANN: The lady with the mysterious odor prolh lem probably has idiopathic hypogcusia. It is a menial dis- order of unknown origin. Zinc, taken by mouth, .sometimes J. H. 0.. Chicago FROM FLINT. MICH.: The lady with the odor problem should change toothpaste and soap. She has an allergy I.hat is throwing her chemistry out of balance. FROM DES If the woman will slop wearing synthetic fabrics 'nylon, acetate, etc.) her odor will disap- pear. Synthetics stimulate glandular secretions which create odors. FROM" KNOXVILLE: The woman who smells tilings should be aware that she has a rare talent. Her highly de- veloped olfactory sense should be put to use. She should rent herself out to church groups who have picnics. Every year at least a down people die from food poisoning at these affairs. If you'll give me her name I'll see to it that -she is put to work at once.
