Linda Sweeting, a Towson University chemistry professor who studied why wintergreen candies glow in the dark when chewed, died Sept. 28 of a heart attack at St. Joseph Medical Center. The Towson resident was 61. A teacher of organic chemistry for the past 33 years, she researched the phenomenon of triboluminescence, the emission of light when a crystal is crushed. She also wrote and spoke widely about professional ethics for scientists. Born in Toronto, she earned bachelor's and master's degrees from the University of Toronto and her doctorate in organic chemistry at the University of California, Los Angeles.

In an election year in which the candidates' wives often seem to take precedence over the candidates, what could be more fitting than a revival of the 1931 Gershwin, Gershwin, Kaufman and Ryskind musical, "Of Thee I Sing"?After all, this is a show in which the presidential election hinges on candidate John P. Wintergreen's selection of a spouse who's not only a career woman, but also bakes the best darned corn muffins in the land. Wintergreen bases his campaign on a seemingly incontestable platform of "love," and victory seems assured -- until the Other Woman shows up.And, just in case these plot points don't seem sufficiently timely, consider the fact that Wintergreen's vice president is a bumbling nebbish who can't spell -- even his own name.

Wait! Don't eat Aunt Vertie's sugar cookies, no matter how tasty they look! Better you should rub them on your aching back.Wintergreen oil, an ingredient in Ben-Gay and other muscle-pain ointments, turned up in a recipe in the July issue of Gourmet magazine.Now the editors of the venerable magazine have found themselves in the unique, and unenviable, position of mailing 750,000 retraction letters, complete with a handy revised-recipe sticker to paste over the first recipe in the "Helen Gustafson's Sugar Cookies" article on page 88. The envelopes read "IMPORTANT: Please Open Immediately."

Psst.Hey, kids. Next time Mom catches you in the closet or under the covers gobbling up your leftover Halloween candy, tell her you're doing a chemistry experiment.That's not what Towson State University chemistry professor Linda M. Sweeting is recommending. But it just might work.Sweeting, as part of the Baltimore region's observation of National Chemistry Week, put on a demonstration yesterday at the Maryland Science Center explaining what makes wintergreen candies glow in the dark when you chew them up.It was just the start of a week of demonstrations, talks and teacher workshops scheduled at area colleges and the Science Center throughout the week.
