DEAR ABBY Volunteers Needed DEAR ABBY: Since your mention of WAIF (an agency for adopting a child from Viet Nam) a few days ago, this office has been inundated with requests for information and applications — particularly from unmarrieds. We do not generally handle single-parent adoptions, and presently have a long waiting list of approved couples who get preference. The sheer physical work of answering these thousands of inquiries is overwhelming since we are a nonprofit organization operating on jublic funds. So thanks to the tremendous response from Dear Abby readers, we have a serious problem. We are understaffed, underfinanced, and swamped. Please, help! MAUREEN O'BRIEN WAIF, PUBLIC INFORMATION DEAR MAUREEN: What a great opportunity to inform those In the New York area that you could use some temporary volunteer office help (Phone: 687-2747) as well as contributions in any amount And hopefully those who seek information about adoptions will enclose at least the postage for a reply. DEAR ABBY: I did a terrible thing, and now I can't sleep nights. I am not a thief, but for the first time in my lifa I stole something from a store. I am in my eighth month of pregnancy and went to the store to buy some diapers. That took all the money I had, but I happened to see a beautiful pink baby sweater lying right out where I could pick it up, so when the clerk turned her back to me, I picked up the sweater and put it in my coat pocket. I was sorry the minute after I did it, but the clerk turned around and I couldn't put it back, so I walked out with it. Abby, I shook like a leaf all the way home. That night I dreamed my baby was born without hands. Chicago Grain Market CHICAGO (UPI)—Wheat and soybeans were mixed, corn Irregularly higher and oats mixed at the close Monday Wheat was off Vi to 3Vi cents; corn and soybeans oft lO'/i to up 4. The commodities opened substantially lower as early trade wqs dominated by hedge offerings from weekend country purchases plus speculative selling. By the end of the session, wheat had posted advances, based on export potential, In all but March contracts. Corn advances were attributed to support from commission houses and professionals. Oats wer« featureless. Soybean trade was marked by early hedging and selling by speculators and some possible effect of the monetary problems. Outside markets were higher.

I'm afraid if I return the sweater they will put me in jail. I love the Lord and have always tried to live by His commandments. Please help me, Abby. PRAYING HARD DEAR PRAYING: Return the sweater to the clerk and tell her what you told me. First offenders who return stolen merchandise are dealt with generously. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I are well able to help our married children out financially. We have three, but there is one daughter who needs it much more than the others. She and her husband have five children, ranging in ages from 13 to 5. He earns a very modest living and isn't able to pay all his bills and feed and clothe those children the way he should. I know this has my daughter worried and upset, but my husband refuses to give them any financial help because this daughter's husband gives 10 per cent of all his earnings to the church. Is my husband right or not? It's the only thing we ever argue about. I'd like your opinion. UPSET MOTHER DEAR MOTHER: Surely your husband can't fault a man for honoring a commitment to his church! If your husband can't see it our way, dig into the sugar bowl and help your daughter as much as you can, personally. DEAR ABBY: I just read in your column that a lady wa3 told by a friend that giving wedding gifts was "old- fashioned." She said today they just pass a tray around and the guests deposit money — starting with $10. If money is all that important, why don't they book the w e d d in g at a wrestling match? A few years back, when I was a professional wrestler, they had an occasional wedding at the wrestling matches. (It was usually one of the wrestlers who got married.) But since a wedding is usually the beginning of a fight, they might be able to find a promoter who would book it. REV. LLOYD F. TEASLEY, CROFTON, Kir. Problems?

(UPI) BRIDGE Restraint Brings In Game By Oswald * James .Tacoby North's jump to three clubs was a limit raise. South decided that his 15 high card points warranted a rebid and tried three spades just in case North might happen to have four-card support. North didn't have four-card support but bid four spades anyway on the theory that 10 tricks might just come in with spades as trump while 11 tricks at clubs might prove to be out of reach. He was wrong on the second count. Five clubs makes easily since declarer can make five trump tricks (including a ruff of a heart) plus four spades, plus two diamonds. He was also right about spades. Soueh had no trouble making 10 tricks there. All that was required was a NORTH *KQ10 ¥864, • A102 + QJ102 WEST 486 VAKJ532 • Q975 *4 West EAST 49754 VQ9 4 J83 49853 SOUTH (D) 4AJ32 • K64 + AK76 None vulnerable North East South 1* 3 A Pass 3 A 4 4 Pass Pan IV Pass Pass Opening lead- little mild restraint. West led out three top hearts and South just had (o hold back the impulse to ruff. Instead he just discarded his four of diamonds which would have been a loser in any event. Then all he had to do with to take the last 10 tricks with high cards. W Tha bidding has been: West North East Sou* 1* 1* 24 Pass 2* Pass 3 4 Pass ? You, South, hold: 4AK54 VAQ63 42 *KQ10?

Answer tomorrow Bids will be opened this month at the Corps of Engineers district headquarters at Mobile tor five construction jobs at Air Force installations in Florida, including one at Tyndall AFB. The Tyndall contract will be for the removal of flight hazards consisting of an open ditch between the two main runways and a ditched slope at the end ot one runway.
