Pagt 10-NAUGATOCK NEWS (Conn.)Tue»d»y, Junes, l»?6 Redeye Dear Ann Landers: Now that every housewife In America has decided she is going to lake up tennis, I hope you will print this letter for them to see. Please, ladies, tennis outfits are supposed to be worn on the courts, not on buses, in supermarkets, to the beauty shop and while running neighborhood errands. You do not look fetching with your lannles hanging out of the ruffled panties and a blue network of varicose veins exposed for the world to see. Would you consider going marketing in your underwear or a bathing suit? Well, why parade around in something that shows just as much? If you don't care how you took, consider please those of us who have to look at you. Thanks a lot.-Mr. John Q. Public Dear John: Can't say that I've seen a great many tennis outfits on Ihe loose, but then I live In Ihe heart of town and I haven't been in many supermarkets lately. If the shoe fits, gi rls, pu I it on—or lake it of I. Dear Ann Landers: 1 am a fairly intelligent woman (or so I taught) in a state of shock. Why? Because I didn't know the first tiling about inheritance laws. 1 sit here dumbfounded at my ignorance and angry at my deceased husband for not educating me. I Maybe HE didn't know any belter either, but he should have.) John and 1 were married 33 years. We have two children. Five years ago our son ran off with a girl we never liked. We haven't heard from himsince. Our daughter is living in California with some hippie - weaving baskets. We wrote her of! in 1972 when she wrote us a nasty letter about our "crass materialism." Two weeks ago John died o! a heart attack. He was 57 and in the best of health. No history o! a coronary problem, ever. He had a physical in December and was pronounced lit as a fiddle. John left NO will. When the lawyers told me I am entitled by law to only one-third of my husband's estate and our daughter and son will divide the other two-thirds I almost keeled over. Yes, that's the way the law in Illinois reads and 1 am helpless.. I am writing in the hope that you will print this letter and wake up others who are as stupid as 1 was. — Don't Know What Hit Me Dear Don't Know: Here's your letter and I hope it gets a few million people to thinking. Do YOU women out there know what would happen if your husband dropped dead tomorrow? If you don't, call a lawyer or your insurance agent and find out. Nobody likes to think about death, but it's virtually the only thing YOU can count on. I SHOULD <3fcf ONB OF THOSE. PUT ON ME ...SITTING ON THIS PAMP (SROUND IS <31V/INS ME RHEUMATISM!

Should I tell ray mom I just found out about her first marriage (which was a bummer) or should 1 act like I don't know anything? Would it be better to ask my brolhers and sisters if they know and maybe get Ihe details from them? I am really upset and need your advice. — Bolt From The Blue Dear Bolt: Why play games?

DOROTHY GURNEY Improving Retirement Income Q. Help'. I'm a woman of 69, DO dependents, with a portfolio worth about $100,000. It produced a total of about $7,400 last year. In addition I receive about $2,500 in Social Security. I'm frightened because I've been cutting Into capital faster than I had expected. Would I do better converting It all to an annuity? A. An investment income of J7,400 from JIOO.OOO is not bad but could be a lot better i! you weeded out a half-dozen stocks which don't belong in an income portfolio. 1 won't mention them here because I don't want to encourage interest in wild ventures sell ing a 175 cents or $2 or S 3 a share. These should be liquidated for whatever they can bring and the proceeds put into some solid preferreds and bonds which today can yield 8H to 9 per cent. If transferring the money now in junk stocks doesn't lift your income sufficiently, you ought to then turn your attenlion to selling some of your low-yield, marginal oil and technical stocks. These might deserve a place in the portfolio of a 29- or 49-year-old investor, but not in one requiring maximum income. When you evaluate these, be sure to divide their dividend by today's market price — not by the price you paid. A lifetime annuity is always a consideration for an elderly income seeker. You may find that at your age a woman can .count on income of somewhere around 10 per cent of what you pay in. That isn't loo bad. But considering that an annuity would consume your capital, 1 don't think a 10 per cent income is enough more than Ihe Sh to 9 per cent you can get from bonds currently to justify going into a program which would wipe out your capital. However, shop around for an annuity. If you don't find anything you like, you can be sure the payout will be much belter when you go shopping five years from now. * • » Q. I sold a couple ol hundred shares of a slock last November at (10. A short time later I received the share proceeds of a 5-foM split plus $1.88 tor a fraction of a share. Mow Ihe broker says I can keep the check bat must return the extra stack. The stock now sells at $8. A. U the stock dropped trom 10 to 8 on the split (a logical move), you are not entitled to the additional (split) shares or the SI,98, either. You can't receive the pre-split stock market price and the post- split shares. It's one or the other - not both. I). 1 own 100 shares ol a finance company's preferred. Dividends were not paid ID the lasl two quarters. It was my understanding Ihe dividends would be paid regardless. A. Regardless of what? If a company suffers losses and has no "fat" how will it pay dividends? When you bought stock yielding 12 to 13 per cent didn't you pause for a moment to ask: "How come I'm so lucky?" You have two choices: Sell out and take your loss, or hold on and hope for a comeback. Your preferred is a "cumulative" preferred, which means the unpaid dividends accrue as a claim against the company and must be paid before the company may again pay any dividends on the common. * i i Q. My husband, who is older, is disabled. What best use can 1 make ol $5,200 which will come io for the next lour years, so that I can build a source of income for later years? A. I would put the money into insured savings certificates expiring when you get the last paymenL You will then have fu nds with which you ca n go into high grade bond market. Q. I have large blocks of leisure Industry stocks. Should 1 sell part now and invest in prclerreds which would give me far more income for retirement In 1979? I'm in the 50 per cent income lax bracket. \Vhat about a list of high yield bonds? A- Your problem is .not financial — but grammatical. You must distinguish between present and future tenses. You are now in Ihe 50 per cent income tax bracket, and most likely, will remain there until retirement. Why, then, lake on more taxable income now — from preferrcds or bonds? 1 f you want to cut your tax bill until retirement, consider tax- exempt bonds due when you retire. Wait three years before you reinvest tor higher income.
