CORNELL AP Religion Writer NEW YORK (AP) - "Watch our step now and don't let any- ody make a sucker of you with is intellectual jazz and his mooth-sounding baloney." That's how the "Cottonpatch 3:28 which reads, "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus," becomes, in the letter to the Georgia Convention: "No more is one a white man and another says "we need to have the good news come to us not only in our own tongue -but in our own time."

PISCES (Feb. 20 to Mar. 20) Take the time to clean your surroundings beautifully so thai others will be highly impressed Then come to right decisions with kin and allies. Show coworkers that you will cooperate more with them in the future. IF YOUR CHILD IS BORN TODAY ... he, or she.will be one of ttiose young people who requires much encouragement and a pat on the back in order to do the best work, but ridicule could be disastrous to this sensitive progeny.

LONG DRESSES AGAIN TORONTO (AP) -A Torono designer who specializes in little girls' fashions says long gowns for flower girls are suddenly in demand for weddings. "It's a trend toward more elegance in dressing up for special occasions this Centennial Year," said Ellen Henderson. Mrs. Henderson exports her high-style children's wear to New York, Philadelphia, Boston, and London. The world's costliest spice comes from the heart of the »af- Iron crocm. served letters. "I have tried to let-him be himself without artifically clothing him with the image of immaculate sainthood," Dr. Jordan says. In addition, the setting is changed from first century Palestine to the 20th century South, with "Jew and Gentile" becoming "white man and Negro," and the established Jewish religionist of old becoming "white American Protestant" — a "WAP." For instance, Rom. 11:1 turns out this way: "I ask, therefore, 'Has God walked out on his people?' Absolutely not. For I myself am.also a WAP — a pure Anglo-Saxon and a Baptist." In its ordinary form, it goes, "I ask then, has God rejected his people? By no means! I myself am an Israelite, a descendant of Abraham, a member of the tribe of Benjamin." Th« regionally adapted version also alters the names of the epistles. The letter to the Romans becomes a letter to the 'Christians in Washington"; the one to the Corinthians Is to 'Christians in Atlanta". Gala- Hans is to the "Georgia Convention"; Ephcsians is to Birmingham. To* fomtd piHift ID Gal.

Jais and Tre- zel played on the French team that won the 1960 Olympiad, but there was one hand in their match against' one American team when their sophistication failed to pay off. When North put down the dummy, he remarked, "I hope we haven't missed a grand slam. The nameless American expert who was declarer replied, "I know all about those jrand slam bonuses." North and the referee laughed. Tre- zel, sitting West, joined in the laughter while Jais, sitting East remained silent and looked very grave. South went Into a huddle after playing the ace of hearts and called for dummy's king of diamonds. When Trezel showed out, .Jais turned to South and asked, "How did you know?" South replied, "I always play queen over the jack," and proceeded to make his slam. At the other table, reached six no France trump. also The French South gave the hand the classic play of trying Uu club finesse at trick two. Then, after winning the second heart, he played out all his spades and clubs in an effort to obtain a count. Finally, he went wrong in diamonds and was down three. After the match, which in spite of this hand, when he was accepting congratulations Jais asked once more, "How did you know?" The American tried to shrug it off, but Jais knew that he must have had some very good reason to play diamonds before he had to do so. The reason was that Jais was obviously trying to look like a man with the 1 queen of diamonds, while Trebel was trying to look like a man who didn't have it, and the American just decided to believe both of them. By TOMMY YATES Associated Press Writer Dr. Denver L. Prince, chairman of the Physics Department at State College of Arkansas, came up with a pretty good riddle recently. Price asked: "What weighs 850 pounds, 'has 2,304 eyes and collects light?" Obviously, not many i things could fit a description like that, but still no one could solve the riddle and Prince had to supply the answer. The answer was: State College's new 16-inch telescope, which was installed atop the college's Science Building. The instrument is believed to Must Account For House Transactions 4-H Officers Are Installed The 1968 Adult 4-H Council officers were elected and then installed by Keith Bilbrey, County Extension Agent at their meeting Monday night.

It was stressed by be the most powerful in the state. For the benefit of the nonscientists, Prince explained his riddle. He said the more light that a telescope picks up the more powerful it is. "Our scope weighs 8SO pounds and its 16- inch diameter will gather as much light as 2,304 human eyes," he said. The telescope will be used in classes and Prince said it would be made available for public viewing about once a week. The cost of the telescope and having it erected on the building was more than $20,000. cut your own taxes by Ray DeCrane Two farmers were recently discussing rural life and the improbability of their ever be ing rich.

It depends upon your age and whether you bought another home. A loss, however, on such sale is never deductible. If you are under 65: You have a taxable profit If ;he adjusted sales price of your home exceeds the cost of a replacement home. For tax purposes, the adjusted sales price is your gross selling price less the total of "fixing-up expenses" and "selling expenses." Fixing-up expenses are those costs undertaken to make your home salable. They include painting, decorating and repairs. To be considered they must have been made within 90 days before the sale contract was made and paid for within 30 days after the sale.. Selling expenses include real estate commissions, advertising expense, escrow fees and legal fees in connection with the sale. If your replacement home costs as much or more than the adjusted sales price of the former home, the tax on any gain is deferred. You may take advantage of this special tax break only if you buy another home within. one year before or after the" sale of your former home. If you: are building a replace-* ment home you must have starV ed it within one year of the 1 sale and occupied it within "l8 months of the sale of the 'old' home. • If you are over 65: Even more f avorabletax treatment is possible if you were 65 or older at the tune you sold your home. To qualify for this treatment the home must have been your principal residence for at least five o! -the eight years before the sale. K you meet these simple requirements and you sell your home for an adjusted sales price of $20,000 or less there is no tax on the profit, no matter how large it may be. ' If the adjusted sales price is more than $20,000, the part of the profit which is tax-free is the ratio between $20,000 and the 'adjusted sales price of $30,000 and made a profit of $15,000 $3,000, two-thirds of the $15,000 profit, or $1,000, would be tax- free. Only the remaining $5,00 would be treated as a long-term capital gain. . -T This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for senior citizens.
