Encourages other women (Continued from Pago K-G) to lake a full-time position with the company. As far as she was concerned, her carper propects were better there than anything she could do with a degree. "I didn't know much when I started...my physics classes helped some, but other than that I don't think my formal education was really all that helpful. "The main thing is to have a good head on your shoulders. And not be afraid to ask questions." At first, Mrs. Kausen explained, her chores were routine -- typing and keeping track of orders, doing stock work and answering phones. Gradually her responsibilities increased. She did reading on her : own, attended conferences and, on occasion, made . her own discoveries. "It's true...I did tear a connector apart," said 'Mrs. Kausen in response to some good-natured ribbing by boss Broom. "I just wanted to sec how it worked." ; , Mrs. Kausen learned so well that soon she was ..doing some sales work on her own. She could answer , questions (or customers, knew parts that could be · substituted for those that were out of stock and in ' some cases was giving customers ideas that they . .hadn't thought of. "Sometime I'd watch the contractor go out of here and I think to myself, 'Wow, I could be doing that-' But having your own business can be a real headache...I'm not sure I'm ready for all that." - MRS. KAUSEN SEES other possibilities, how. ever. As a stock holder, "I do as well as the company does" -- which is pretty well right nosy, she added. And she believes that other opportunities arc available to her in the field of electronics manufacturing and sales. "There's a lot of potential in this field. That's what I was looking for...something that was a career, not just a job." Broom, who described (he slightly-built Mrs. Kausen as "worth her weight in gold," seems as committed to attracting women into electronics as his vice president is. According to Mrs. Kausen, a second "career-minded" woman joined the five-mcm- . her firm. Mrs. Kausen hopes to train her to take over · some of her duties so she can go on to do other things. "I think the potential here is unlimited -- especially as the company continues to grow," Mrs. Kausen said. ' Added Broom, "More women ought to be getting into this field. I think they have a lot to offer." Bruce Polay to conduct The Aces on bridge IM X CO«N m. TUMCWT1M DEAR ABBY Choice letter brings laugh When choosing t h e stronger of two suits, it's not always the high cards that count. Often the intermediate cards arc more important and can decide the issue between success and defeat. Today's hand offers an interesting contrast. He who goes for the glitter gets nothing. He who does the spade work scores a well earned game. South wins the dub jack with a deceptive king and pauses for a c o u n t of tricks. He has seven top winners and possibilities for developing cither of the five card majors. The hearts look stronger, so let's s«e what happens if declarer tries the hearts. Dummy's jack Ls finessed and East wins the q u e e n to r e t u r n a diamond. Declarer wins the ace and l e a d s another heart hoping for a 3-3 break. Unfortunately, Wesl discards on the third heart and declarer is in trouble. With nothing better to do, declarer concedes a heart to East and dummy's last heart is high. Now declarer must settle for only eight tricks and the game is down one. THE SUIT with the lop cards awl lots of holes is not the one to buy. Better to forget the lop cards and pick the suit that's sure to yield more winners. Look what happens if spades arc developed instead of hearts.

In selecting the material, 1 came across a letter that gave me a chuckle. I hope It gives you one, too. It was published In my column in October, 1968: HEAR ABBY: I'm a 41- year-old bachelor who digs women, but I'm not looking for any matrimonial involvements. I live alone in a modest bungalow and enjoy my privacy. My problem is an aggressive d i v o r c e e who lives next door. She's not bad l o o k i n g , but she comes on awfully strong. She's a rip-roarin' Republican and a Nixon booster Snrlh t:.iM from way b;ick. If she sees a light in my place, she runs right over with a prepared meal atxi an armful of Nixon campaign literature. She's even offered to cook for me and do my ironing, but I'm not about to fall into (hat trap. When site's not trying to sell me on Nixon, s h e ' s talking about marriage. Last week ! had it, so 1 moved my refrigerator, stove nnd TV down t» the basement so she w o n ' t know I'm homo. So iviw she phones m e !
