AGRA, -India (AP) - The magnificent Taj Mahal, the peerless monument to love which is India's major tourist attraction, may be sinking ever so slowly into the sacred Jumna River. Mogul Emperor Shah Jahan's memorial to his second wife is in no immediate danger of crumbling but some experts in the Department of Archeology say prompt remedial action is needed. The Taj first developed cracks in portions of its massive underground foundation several years after its completion, about 1654. An Englishman, Capt. Joseph Taylor, made repairs in 1810, according to local records. Additional repairs were logged in 1874. . . * * * A recent 'check showed the tilt of the Taj!s four minarets has increased, with one leaning (iiiiiiininiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiinii News of Men In Servke Morgan Army Pvt.

It is most important in rubber bridge where overtricks mean little but also has its place in match point duplicate. In the recent Metropolitan championships, Carol Leib and Jane Ken won the women's pairs. One of their good scores came when Carol wisely, decided to take out an insurance policy on afour spade contract. East put the ace of diamonds on her partner's queen and Carol dropped the king. This type k aim* wtomtila with any good player irrespective of the possible need to establish an extra entry to dummy. East returned the nine of diamonds and Carol let dummy's 10 win the trick. Then she went into a lot of study before leading the ace of clubs and discarding her jack of diamonds. This was her insurance policy. It made it impossible for her to make an overtrick, but nev. ertheless made it impossible for her to lose her contract. Her next play was alow trump. East jumped up with the ace and led another diamond. Carol ruffed high, drew trumps stopping in dummy and discarded two of her three low hearts on the last two high clubs. It should be noted that the safety play would have been equally effective had West held the ace of spades. East would have been able to trump a heart, but the heart East trumped would have been the small one that Carol lost anyway. It should also be noted that if East had ducked the first diamond, Carol would have had to go down one trick and that a heart plus further correct defense would also have beaten her, but no one who wants to win wait* far sure thing eon- tnete. nearly nine inches. Cracks in upper reaches of the huge marble dome are reported enlarging as well. Whatever cracks there may be in the 300-year-old monument, it is still a work of art. Whether viewed at the break of dawn, in the glaring sun of midday or in the sheen of a full moon, the Taj lives up to every expectation of the tourist. A good portion of the $33.6 million in foreign exchange which India earned from tourists last year must be credited to the.Taj. Special air, rail and bus service is provided from New Delhi to Agra, a distance of 120 miles, and efficient guide service-is readily available. Beggars and peddlers are pretty well kept away. ' " ' .: ; *".' "* '* ; ''.. Shah Jahan had the Taj built as a sepulcher for his second— and favorite—wife, Mumtaz Mahal, Exalted of the Palace. She bore 14 of the emperor's children, dying while giving birth to his eighth son, in 1630 while the shah was waging a battle campaign nearby. " • The shah invited designs for the monument and r finally" selected one by Ustad Isa, a Persian. • . The emperor brought in skilled craftsmen from France, Italy, Persia and Turkey, and threw 20,000 laborers into the construction, it took about 22 years. One Indian government publication estimates the original cost at $70 million. > A massive base of sandstone was constructed, topped by a marble platform 313 feet square. On it was erected the central mausoleum with an entry archway 90 feet high and a dome 60 feet in diameter. * * * Slender marble minarets 130 feet tall were built on the platform's four corners. The entire Koran, Moslem holy book, was transcribed on the'outer walls of the Mausoleum, the scrip in black-marble inlays. The letters get progressively larger in ascending rows, and to a person standing on the ground they all appear to be the same size. Two smaller .red sandstone mosques flank the .mausoleum and a high wall was built around the 42 acres of gardens. There is a three- story gateway on one side; opposite is the Jumna River. . . •. ' Thfe Taj is symmetry to per r fectibn, with one small; flaw. While Mumtaz Mahal's 'tomb is centered beneath the great dome, the son of Shah'Jahan cut costs and did not build another mausoleum for his father. He buried him in a tomb on one side of Mumtaz Mahal's.. Social Security Question Box (This column answers some of the most frequently asked .Social Security questions.
