Keep cool, no more punishment needed By Abigail Van Buren • tm * a>*m TMMM*N. V. Hm int., IM. DEAR ABBY: My husband and 1 have been married for IB years, and I always thought we had a great marriage. Having once been his secretary, I sometimes (ill in at his office when one of his girls is on vacation. Last week while I was working there, a man phoned, and in a very gruff and angry tone, he asked to speak to my husband. Since my husband happened to be standing right beside my desk at the time, 1 handed him the telephone. Then I heard this booming voice say: "My wife lust told me everything, and even though I have a loaded gun, you're not worth going to prison for and neither is she, but if I ever catch you near her again, don't say I didn't warn you I" Then he hung up. Abby, I nearly fell apart. I went home immediately, and my husband followed me. We had a long talk, and he told me who she was. [She and her husband belong to our club, and she certainly doesn't look the part.] My husband said he'd seen her only a few times, she meant nothing to him, and he'd never see her again. I forgave him, and believe him when he says he'll never see her again, but I'm bound to run into her at the club, and I'm not sure I can handle it. I want her to know that I know. Should 1 tell her? SHOOK DEAR SHOOK: No. Keep your cool, and resist the temp* tetta to tell her that you know. (Your husband will tell her.] No need to punish her further. Her husband has probably already taken care of that. DEAR ABBY: We have a dentist in our town who is so money hungry it's unbelievable. It's a pity the new genera* tion will never know the kind of dentists we knew when we were growing up. They always had time to listen, and they cared. This dentist sees anywhere from SO to 60 patients daily. Besides a secretary who answers his telephone, he has three people working for him whom he calls "technicians" although none of them has ever had any formal training for the job. They take X-rays, impressions, and even clean and scale teeth. One pulled a suture out of my mouth on the doctor's day off! Isn't there a law to protect the public against unqualified people doing dental work? Where should I write to complain? CONCERNED DEAR CONCERNED: There ARE laws, and they are well-defined. Write to your county or state Dental Association. But before you make any accusations, be sure of your fact*.

By Oswald It James Jacoby South wasted no time with the play of what he considered an elementary hand. That is he wasted no time at the start. He ruffed the second spade and started after trumps. If trumps had broken 3-3 everything would have been fine, but when East showed out on the third lead South saw that his contract was in jeopardy. He thought a while; drew the last trump and tried a club finesse.

Authorities estimated the wholesale value of the approximately 26 pounds of narcotics at more than $500,000, but added that its retail value could easily exceed $2 million, depending on the initial purity of the drug and how many times it could "Be "cut" by middlemen and "street" peddlers. The indictments, which covered the period from January, 1973, to the present, were announced by U.S. Attorney Paul J. Curran, New York Special Narcotics Prosecutor Frank Rogers and Bronx District Attorney Mario Merola, whose offices cooperated closely on the investigation. Merola said the ring was involved In a "nationwide operation with extensive tentacles on the eastern seaboard." He said the group had for some time been engaged In "substantial trafficking from which they made millions and millions of dollars" from the sale of cocaine, most of which is smuggled from Latin America, particularly Colombia. The nine-count indictment named 24 defendants from the Metropolitan area and six from Florida, including Frankiin Flynn, 35, said to be the vice president of a Miami bank, who with two other defendants allegedly brought the cocaine to the Hotel Diplomat in Hollywood, Fla., last Sept. 23. It was there, the indictment charged, that the 26 pounds of narcotics were transferred to six of the ring's New York members, including Ernest "Jake" Coraluzzo, 34, a trucker from the Rockland county town of Valley Cottage. Coraluzzo and another defendant, 31-year-old Jerry Rubin of the Bronx, were identified by Merola as members of the Genovese and Gambino Mafia families. They and three others named in the indictment were arrested last Oct. 25 on charges of selling four pounds of cocaine and one pound of heroin to undercover agents for $61,000. The 26 pounds of cocaine covered in the Indictment were allegedly packaged and stored in the Yonkers apartment of 44-year-old Marilyn Greco, previous to its alleged distribution by such alleged ring members as Nathaniel "Willie Lump Lump" Arnold, Robert "Bobby Gooch" Browning, of the Bronx, and Phillip "Philly Rags" Clm- mino, of Fairlawn, N.J.
