Cooper • NSW .YORK, '(INS) — The best ttory of the. week' about giveaway programs is not about somebody .who won a Jackpot, but somebody who didn't. Producer Sam Levin e was just finiihinf. up "Take, a Number" on Mutual the other afternoon when someone knocked on the 'control, room door. It was an FBI a&ent. The agent said he was very anxious to make, the acquaintance of.a certain gentleman who had appeared us a contestant during the first part .of the program:, • Levlnc and his. assistants made'a ouick survey of the studio, but the • contestant, who. had failed to win anything, had'gone. Theniie asked .the agent why the sudden interest. The reason, according to the --•FBI man, was that the contestant had been married four • times—the last three ceremonies being slightly bigamous: One of the wives was listening to the show in California when the "-' long - *> u £ bt "husband" appeared on it. She called the local oops; who called .the FBI ;. in New York, who arc still looK- Vice-president 'Elect Alben T, ' Barkley may be a-guest on the Horace Eeidt • Show- -next.

DEAR MARY.HAWORTH:, I am d' 'girl' 19 'years old, • .writing .-from Puerto Rico; my homeland, to .OSK your help; with a 1 , difficult-problem I have met./I have followed, your writings In our newspaper, El Mundo,. and have 'developed confidence in, your judgment. -. I' am employed in. an- office and study at night to complete my education. .1 am now-in the'fourth year- of •'high school. and Stephen, my'sweetheart, he!d : a good position in the same office, while studying at the 1 university, until last July. Then' he decided to go .to-New York to find- a'-better job'at larger salary, to save money for-, our wedding Since being in New' York, he has' changed jobs five times ' and lor.'this reason I begged" him to come home, saying that I would break our engagement if ;he.dld not. Hopes Firm Stand May Conquer Him.- Also' his family has urged him to come-home,-.but'he has .decided, to stay' where. he. is, and therefore I did '"break ' our engagement. Only vesterday I returned to hlrn all h'.s letters' and'pictures.. It is my hope that-on receiving these, he will return to me immediately, as;I feel he will- do it he really loves me. . I wish to make clear that he my'first love; . that I was very happy, in his company, that we never -quarreled or had any serious disputes, 'and' that since' he went to' New' York' I -haven't gone to any - recreational events. Have I done right in talcing' a firm stand? And do you think I love him truly? Please'advise me. E..B. True Love Cannot . , Exist In Vacuum DEAR E. Br: Much poignant poetry' and classic fiction-;to the.con- trary, true love'.cannot- exist, one- sided, in a vacuum. True love is a dynamic '(i.-e,, 'active and growing) relationship of mutual consideration within a'framework'of steady close companionship. Romantic fever, which is. something else .again, Is-rather akin to frustrated' passion. In each case the palpitant emotion has to do with' fantasy-glorification of a per-son whose' "every 'day" self is still somewhat a mystery. :o the "lover ; or who, due to circumstances, seems unattainable. Through past ages, this Lype of situation or. chest-heaving • agitation has been much celebrated in music, song and. story, as being love of celestial caliber; and yet a more ignorant, neurotic, or mistaken concept of ''true love" is hardly conceivable. Actually what the tormented • devotee is • proclaiming is psychological maladjustment to reality and' bafficd hunger for lovc- rolatedness-that he knows not how ,o engage and perpetuate In serviceable terms.. Man's fn Flight From Cooperation Warm congeniality, or a spark of affinity felt in first meetings or in tentative courtship thereafter, may lead to 'true love; -but only i: (1) the.pair mutually desire, sincerely and spontaneously, to 'establish positive unity in dealing with life, and (2) use their- intelligence and appreciation of each other to guide them .in developing corresponding social patterns that make this possible; : • • . Unless this course is happily pursued, .with sense of collective 'gain father than personal hardship, .the potential ol love existing between them has no vital significance. It is rio.better than the "flash in the pan"-or transitory infatuation. . Therefore,, evaluating your problem I think CD have the capacity 'to lovo Stephen, but (2) that his present course of action amounts,' unconsciously or. deliberately, to rejecting.your devotion; and (3)-that-you've.shown intuitive wisdom arid profitable foresight In breaking tbe engagement. Your capacity to Move, plus your desire to love realistically, is your guarantee of'finding true love eventually; -so don't feel defeated by Stephen's.defection, and instead of waiting to -hear from him,.do your best to get back into social circulation immediately.
