It always pleases me to receive a letter from someone who wants to invest money regularly; Regular investing is basic,to investment success, so let me answer that part of your letter first. One of the best ways to invest regularly and at the same time to learn about stocks and the stock market is through an investment c,l u b. Here you can not only learn about investing in general but also be exposed to a Variety of opportunities for investing further capital. I would suggest putting perhaps $20 to $25 of 'the $150 you wish toJnvest each month into a club" Then every three or four months yon will have accumulated several hundred dollars extra which you can invest in one of the stocks the club has examined which especially appeals to you. As for that $6,000, here's a nice arbitrary judgment.

Q. .Please tell me why the commission part of the price we pay on Mutual Funds is a deductible expense for income tax purposes. A Not only is the commission on mutual funds not deductible as income expense but neither is the .commission on all stock purchases Although it might seem logical that such costs should be deductible, the Internal Revenue Sen/ice thinks differently. And the IRS has won its case in court against those who don't agree For income tax purposes, here is the proper way to figure capital gams or losses Re cord the cost of the stock plus the commission Record selling price for the stock less the commission. Subtract the two. Q My husband and I are in our mid-forties. We have a savings account and time deposits, but we would like to get more income so that we can have a comfortable old age. Do you think tax-free bonds would be a goo dinvestment? A. I am guessing from your tatter that'.you are of moderate circumstances. In that case, I am not inclined to advise tax- free bonds. The tax-free ' feature of these.bonds does not add up to much unless you are in a fax bracket : of 50 percent or better. . • ; No one is very fond of paying taxes. ;But.when you'buy:these bonds, you forego the opportunity for appreciation which you have in stocks; This appreciation can do more for you in the long • run than what .you will gain in tax-free income.

Among the soldiers of the 82rid Airborne Division and the 503rd Military Police Battalion, 74 were persuaded to take the police examination and 65 of these, achieved a passing grade and are being processed for jobs, officials reported.

Left to themselves, North and South would play the hand somewhere in hearts — possibly in game, more probably at two or three.. West would probably open the five of clubs and South would make 10 tricks. The bidding in the box is what took place when one East'play- er did stick in a spade overcall. South was crowded into a two heart bid and from then on there was no stopping below game.' East won the spaae opening with his jack and went over all possibilities. He didn't think much of his chance to defeat the contract. It was apparent from the bidding that South held more than five hearts. Then South saw one chance that might defeat the contract or at'least prevent an..overtrick. It depended on finding tits partner with the king and one heart. • . . . East led his 10 of diamonds! South won with dummy's queen and saw the danger of a diamond ruffi He did tile best 'he could to stop it by' playing ace and one heart but that did him no good. West took his king of hearts and led the king of diamonds. East ruffed dummy's ace and West waited for the setting trick with his jack of diamonds. Crime at the bridge table had paid once more.
