Alienation of Affections Ground For Damage Suit Q. I feel that my straying 40 year old husband might have stayed with me and our children if he had not been influenced by'the family of his young girl friend. They allow him to spend all of his free time at their home and give him meals. Are alienation of affections suits still allowed in Illinois? If so, can I sue the whole family or just the girl friend? A. Alienation of affections suits arfi still allowed, but they have 'become increasingly rare since, 1947 when the legislature passed an act limiting the amount of damages that could be ! recovered to "actual" damages. In the days when "punitive, exemplary, vindictive or aggravated" damages were allowed, the threat of an alienation df .affections suit was often used 1 as an instrument for blackmail. -Awife who still wants to file an alienation of affections suit should bear in mind that she must not only prove that she suffered actual damages, but she must also prove that her husband had love and affection for her during the course of the marriage and that there was sufficient enticement to cause those affections to depart She .edtiKl sue more than one person if she can show that there Was, a conspiracy to steal her husband's affections. —Illinois State Bar Association SB 3 sson Han.l Wortiiy Of Slam Bid By Oswald and James Jacoby NORTH (D) 24 V AJ974 • AKJ2 4762 WEST EAST AK74 A 108.

(AP) — An American missionary says his release from prison by the Cuban government was unconditional but that he will not re­ sume his Baptist missionary work here. The Rev. J. David Fite, 36, said Sunday in a telephone interview from Havana that he, his wife and their two youngest children hope to return to the United States as soon as possible. He did not say what was the status of his father-in-law, Dr. Herbert Caudill, 65, also a missionary, who was convicted with Fite in 1965 of illegally exchanging Cuban pesos for U.S. currency. They said they made the exchanges so refugees could buy airline tickets from Cuba. Both denied accusations that they spied for the United States. i.t^ *.t» aju «I» «1» «X* •SA *X* •!* *X* «1* ^» *A# *1* *1* %L» *1* *1+ *1« %1* •!* *£* *£» *i* *I* •£» «1* 9K *f5 *|* *f 5p *f» *T* ^*^«T**X*«T**T*«T ,, T* -7* *r» *r> *v* *p *v» *T> *T* •!> *T* «T* *v» *I* *T* * H 0 LI DAY GREETINGS from your neighbors at ILLINOIS POWER COMPANY IT'S OUR BUSINESS TO SERVE YOU BETTER - **************************** fegfeypft jftyyy^——• — — • * * •X- ** Opening lead—*4 North can make seven hearts if he plays the hand in thiss uit. All he must do is to take the right view of the spade suit after picking up West's queen of hearts. Needless to say not one of the pairs in the U. S. Team Trials landed in hearts. Instead '", every South declarer played the hand in s p ades. Three arrived at six, two stopped below the slam. The hand also illustrates the luck of Intei national Match Point duplicate. The slam is a good one but not outstanding. It should be bid and the odds are that declarer will make it but it is not in the lay down category. Those who bid it gained and their unfortunate o p pon- ents lost. Those who did not have the slam bid against them gained without doing anything Lo justify the gain. Looking at all the cards you can see that declarer will have no trouble with the contract. He wins the first club, plays three rounds of diamonds in order to get rid of his club losers, then goes after trumps. He can play ace and queen or finesse. Either way he winds up Josing one trump trick and nothing else. There was quite an esoteric discussion at the tourna- Vnent as to which line of play was superior. The ace play is the winner if West holds a singleton king, the finesse is a winner if East started with exactly five diamonds and king and a low trump. Against that combination East would be able to promote his partner's 10 to a trick by leading a fourth diamond. Without going into full mathematics, we can state that the lay of the ace is about two per cent better than the finesse. Only 8 days left to start your Good Neighbor Retirement Plan!
