THE LEARNING CHALLENGER by Robert Bamett DIRECTIONS: A. Using each "Chaos Grid" number with its fetter one time, arrange the numbers with their letters for the "Order Grid" so each vertical column, horizontal row, and two diagonals each ADD to numbers inside thick lined cells. B. Some correct numbers with their letters have been put into the "Order Grid" to get you started. Also, above the "Order Grid" is a "Decoded Message* clue. C. After you have solved the "Order Grid" doing as direction "A" says, put the letters from horizontal rows, from left to right, under "Decoded Message" and make words to form the answer.

Yesterday s (Answers tomorrow) Jumbles: FOIST TESTY FAULTY RAREFY Answer: A boxer will do this to make weight before a big fight A FAST FAST Reader is tired of sister-in-law flaunting herself at family gatherings Dear Annie: My sister-in-law, "Joanna," is an exhibitionist. Over the years, family members have been shown pictures of her in thong bikinis and even, oops, a few nude pictures. ("Oh, how did they get in there?") This is a 48- year-old woman who should know better. What I can't understand is why Joanna wants -to expose herself this way to us and our two teenage sons. During their last visit to our home, she wore a G-string bikini. I consider this totally inappropriate for a family picnic. Although my husband says he agrees with me, his actions say something else. At a recent gathering, he dragged Joanna around on a pool float for an hour. Why should I have to put up with this display and question my husband's morals every time Joanna is around? My husband doesn't understand why I get so angry, and his attitude is causing great distress in our marriage. He certainly doesn't want to cut his brother off, but I'm ready to call it quits. We have talked to ANNIE'S MAILBOX By Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Joanna about her behavior, but she just doesn't get it. Any suggestions? - Tired of the Show Dear Tired: She gets it, all right. Joanna knows exactly what she is doing and enjoys every bit of attention she attracts. Appealing to her sense of decency isn't going to make a dent. She has no sense of decency. If you trust your husband, Joanna is no threat to you. Nonetheless, there is no reason you have to put up with her inappropriate behavior. Let her know if she doesn't tone down her act, the invitations will stop. A 48- year-old woman who must flaunt herself in front of the teenage relatives sounds pathetic.

I figured it went without saying that something more than a book was in order. I flew up from Houston to Seattle to spend my birthday with him. And when I opened my birthday gift, I was stunned to see a $7.50 paperback. I'm not sure if I should say something or not, but my feelings are definitely hurt. I thought he would get me something a little more personal after a year of dating. At least he could have given me flowers. How should I approach the subject without sounding ungrateful? - Confused in Texas Dear Confused: Obviously, your boyfriend's crystal ball wasn't working well. He didn't realize that "book" was a code word for champagne and jewelry. He assumed you meant what you said. It is romantic, but unfair (and ultimately disappointing) to expect a man to read your mind. If you want more personal gifts in the future, you'd better clue him in. Tell him you love the book,, but you were hoping he would have attached a single red rose to the cover. And next time, be more honest. Dear Annie: My son, a high school fresh- man, was recently diagnosed with Crohn's disease. He came home from the hospital with a r tube in his nose and will have to wear it to. school for a minimum of three months. My son already had problems being picked on at school because of the pain he was in. How can 1 I help him handle the teasing and the possibil-; ity of bullies pulling out his tube? - A Worried^ Mom Dear Mom: Enlist the help of the school authorities in educating the students about your son's illness. Talk to the school counselor' about techniques to help your son stand up to (or avoid) potential troublemakers. Finally, if your son has some good friends, he should ask! them to stay close and provide emotional sup-, port.
