Your 2J wo " 'Ti*. the season to be jolly," the song poes. Many will agree that this particular season is one of the times of I he year that the routine tensions of life'are eased. Yet, is the spirit VUortk Please of Christmas changing? Has it become too commercialized? Has the true meaning of Christmas been lost? What do you think? "/ think that Christmas is commercialized. But I think you eon help it by telling your children what the true meaning of Christmas is. Christmas is a time of happiness and should be kept that way."—Betty White, 1001 Pecan, B/yt/ieviHe.

Written for Newspaper Enterprise Association I fore he's 30, doctors say, he's Tobias Stone of New York and Ivan Erdos of Los Angeles won the rubber bridge championship in 1966. The untimely death of Ivan this fall caused Stone to defend with Philip Feldesman of New York. They reached the quarter finals where they ran up against the eventual winners. Stone's jump to four spades in one of the qualifying matches was typical rubber bridge technique. It would also have been .effective in tournament play since it shut East and West out of a cheap save at five clubs which would only be set two tricks on perfect defense. West opened the seven of hearts. Dummy played low and East's ten lost to Stone's king. At this point most rubber bridge players would have conceded a club and two hearts and taken game and rubber. Stone saw a remote chance for an overtrick and since ttiat 3D points might decide the •. match, Stone went after it. H« playtd i diamond to dura- BERRY'S IRLD going to die.

About this time his upper front teeth seemed to be pushing forward and spaces developed between them. This made his lip stick out.
