X. tM4 DEAR ABBY IN NAVY CIRCLES They 1 re Chimneys No More Biq Ones Are On the Move ' By FRANCES WRIGHT I The big flat tops are a familiar sight these days anchored at Pier Echo or at the Naval Shipyard. When 6ce of the aircraft carriers tails, as the USS Benningtoa did last week, it's always an {repressive sight. '; When she's leaving for a half year's deployment, as the Big Benn" was, and a thousand waving, tearful relatives watch as the ship -moves majestically out, it's a saddening sight. But most Navy families have had long training ia these separations since most of the combat- type ships average 60 percent of their time at tea. They try to help those who havtn't experienced it before put the crytog towels away and carry on. The Bennington. flagship for Rear Adm. Turner F. Caldwell. COMASW GROUP 5, is commanded by Capt. John S. HilL One of the most modern of anti-subma- Oswald Jacoby Keep Lead in Place The "avoidance" ptay did not get its name because it is something to avoid. Instead it is designed to avoid letting the wrong opponent into the lead. Usually it occurs in combination with another play known as "loser on loser." With this information you should have no trouble find- - ing the correct way for South to play his contract of five hearts doubled against the spade opening. South should figure out that West's six of spades was a singleton ind that he held ace and another trump. Otherwise he would surely have opened a diamond or club. Thus South should win the spade lead with dummy's king and play the king of clubs. If East should produce the ace South would ruff and lead a low trump, but East would play small whereupon South would discard his losing diamond. · · · * · WEST WOULD be back in the lead and would have co way to get his partner in. The actual declarer did not find this play. He won the spade in his own hand and played t h e jack of trumps. Had West ducked, everything would have been fine, but West hopped up with the ace and vmderled his ace of diamonds. East won the trick and returned a spade to set the contract. · tine-warfare-carriers, she will visit many Far Eastern ports after aa interval in Pearl Harbor. · : Another of the 'mighty giants docked at the Shipyard for an overhaul recently, the USS Princeton (Capt!

New Aid for Handicapped Begun in Long Beach Area By ABIGAIL VAN BUREN DEAR ABBY: About two years ago you had a whole column of letters en how to quit smoking. Would you please consider running it again? "NEEDS IT" IN PHILLY DEAR-NEEDS IT": With pleasure! · DEAR AB-v BY: My man · smoked three packs of cigarettes a day and used op a whole boxf of snuff, too.* He said that',, his mouth felt like the bottom of a bird ABBY cage. He got a prescription from his doctor for something that was guaranteed to curb his desire for smoking. I don't know what it wax. but ! know I saw a mirade happen'because my husband hasn't smoked in four years. OLLIE-S WIFE · · · · DEAR ABBY: One day, 12 years ago, I decided that smoking was a filthy, stupid and expensive habit, so t made up my mind to quit. This is what I did. The moment ! walked into a room I announced, "I'VE QUIT SMOKLNG." After that I couldn't very well bum a cigarette off anyone, and I didn't carry them myself. I kr.ew that I didn't dire beg a smoke or Fd make myself look like a real jerk. It was a matter of pride. NO JERK · » · » DEAR ABBY: After hav-' ing the cigarette habit for 40 years, I took my cigarettes out of my pocket and said, "You have been bossing me around for 40 years, now I am going to boss YOU around." I put away the pack and never smoked again. That was 15 yean ago. I'm now 92 and feel fine. W.H.E. (Ontario) · · ·- · DEAR ABBY: When I had to have a cigarette before I could open my eyes fuHy la the morning, I knew 1 had better quit. I tried to taper off. but that never works. I finally walked into a church one morning (it wasn't even of my own denominationX got down on my knees and prayed to God to deliver me of the habit. And do you know, I haven't smoked or even had the desire to since? When everything else fails, try prayer. AN ORDINARY GUY · · · · DEAR ABBY: My husband smoked like a chimney. He had a hmg X-ray taken at the suggestion of his physi- sian. A dark shadow was discovered on his lung. Fortunately it was NOT cancer, but my husband snipped off that part of the X-ray and taped it to a package of cigarettes. He carries it with him constantly and now every time he is tempted to smoke, he looks at that X-ray and takes a pepper n e n t drop instead. -GRATEFUL · » » · DEAR ABBY: Here is a proven method for overcoming the cigarette habit. If a person smokes 40 cigarettes aday, he should cut down to 39 the first day. 33 the second, 37 the third and so forth. It takes a lot of willpower, but if I could do it smoker for 32 years) anybody can. WILLPOWER WILL · * · · . DEAR ABBY: A psychologist once told me that in order to break a habit, substitute another one. So, instead of reaching for a cigarette. reach for a piece of gum. a carrot stick or a piece of licorice. It really works. When you finally get your sense of taste and smell hack again, you will never go back to smoking. It happened to me after 30 years. --SUBSTITUTE . Hate to write letters?
