DEAR ABBY Family By ABIGAIL VAN BUS£N DEAR ABBY: I am going to be married this summer and 1 have asked my i win- mate to be my maid of honor. (I am away at college.) She isn't a "n«w" frttnd, Abby. we have gone( all thru school i t o g e t h e r , ij wrote my *ls-{ ter, who it 2l years younger t h a n I am,s asking her tof be a bridts-i maid. Here isj part of a let-l ter I j u s t re ABBY peace s hould MM., *Mr. Mb 1-7 ceived from my mother: (Quote.) "Marilyn. 1 am not Ruing to say anything about your choice of maid of honor, except thie: Your sister i very hurt «nd I dcn't blame her. You will have many friends in your life, but only one sister. Think it over." (End of quote.) Now I am really in a fix. How can I explain to my friend that she can't be my maid of honor after she already accepted? I really WANT her to be it, but I'm afraid if I don't have my sister it will cause permanent hard feelings in my family, and I don't want that either. Can you help me make a choice?--IN A FIX. DEAR IN: You know your family better titan I do; to If you fear that "permanent hard feeilngi" will result should you choose y o u r friend fgr maid of honor, ask your sister. Explain your predicament to your friend. She will probably be much more understanding t h a n your sister. DEAR ABBY: I don't know why that wife is making: such a big thing over wush-| prevai ing her husband's b a c k . , Every man likes to be spoiled a little. Take mine.

Among special guests were Estelle Davis (left), charter member; Eva Davis, current president; and Alberta Crary, president of the Los Angeles group which chartered the Long Beach Chapter in March, 1950. I US? The men in my life-by Sophia Loren CARLO PONTI: "He shaped the development of my personality and tastes." CART BRANT: "I knew he loved me, and that, if-I chose to, I could marry him." SINATRA: "He completely upset my preconceptions." MASTROIANN": "A magnificent performer who tends to be lazy."... And many more candid 'reminiscences by Sophia Loren. Exclusive, in the April JOURNAL Does your family spend too much? "We're not going to sit home putting every penny into a jar," says Joe Simchowitz, whose family can't make ends meet- on $23,000 a year! In the .new'JOURNAL'S "How America Lives" report, John Gunther analyzes the case histories of families caught in the spending trap. And tells why "almost all of us are guilty of at least some overspending." Do blondes really have more appeal? Do they have an edge with men? What's the one very special distinction they do have? Is there really a -'blonde personality"? In '.the April JOURNAL, five 'successful women tell ·Whatit meansto be blonde . .

Jim: "You've really given me a tough one. I have possible plays in every suit but clubs. I start by thinking along the lines of the code word Arch. Analysis of the lead indicates that it is NOftTB (D) H A S S V A K I 4 2 4 A Q J J # Q J WEST EAST *K A J 1 0 6 V Q J U I » 5 3 · K S S S « 1 0 7 S 4 J I I S + 1 0 J 7 4 2 mom 4 A Q M T 4 Z probably a four or five card heart suit since he would not lead a shorter suit after hearts have been rebid, so my first step is to abandon the idea of trying to break the hearts 3-3 to set up a diamond discard. REVIEW of the bidding tells me nothing. The opponents did not bid. Count of the losers shows one possible loser in diamonds and two possible losers in trumps. If I have to lose a diamond I must play the trumps for no losers which means taking a trump finesse and finding two trumps in each hand. If I don't have to loje a diamond I can afford onej trump loser which means that the correct play will be to play my ace of hearts to see if I can drop the singleton king. If I don't drop the singleton king I go back to dummy and lead tov ^rd my queen. After all this preliminary thought I decide that the best play will be to test the diamonds first. I come to my hand with a club snd try the diamond finesse. Does it work?" Oswald: "Yes." Jim: "Then I lead a trump to my ace." "You drop the singleton king and the rest is just picking up the marbles."
