I can't imagine where photographer Kenji Toma got his inspiration for the piece "4 Steps to Dressing Up" (Fall Fashion Issue, Sept. 10). First of all, forget the clothes; they don't matter in the context of the model's outrageous, silly and vulgar poses. Metals, furs, knits and plaids are all worthy fashion statements and deserve better treatment than this offensive and preposterous presentation. If this is high fashion, and since I don't plan on falling up or down stairs in the near future, I am happy to be frumpy.

The 1960 blowup over speaking in tongues at St. Mark's Episcopal Church in Van Nuys might never have been the starting point for the worldwide charismatic movement except for the publicity efforts of parishioner Jean Stone. Although she and other charismatics in that church were told not to talk about their new beliefs, Stone left the parish and persuaded Newsweek and Time magazines to write it up. "I thought it was too important to be forgotten as just a parish problem," she said.

Darleen Carr considers herself lucky, "especially as a woman," to have survived in Hollywood for nearly three decades.

During the 1952 Olympic Games, Katalin Szoke won two gold medals in swimming for her Hungarian team. Thirty-three years later, now a California resident married to a very successful developer, Arpad Domyan (he was a member of the Hungarian water polo team that also won a gold medal in 1952), Kati was inducted into the Swimming Hall of Fame in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., last month. It's all heady stuff and worthy of the kind of party Arpad gave for Kati last weekend.
