MARILYN MONROE "Find that girl" QUOTE: "Though Marilyn [Monroe] never met him, Howard Hughes was reported to be directly responsible for giving Marilyn her first break in films, in 1946. He was lying in his hospital bed, recuperating from injuries he'd suffered in a plane crash, when he spotted [Marilyn's] shapely figure in a The story goes that Howard Hughaa men's magazine. Hughes, who had discovered Jean Harlow and then Jane Russell, ordered one of his aides to 'find that girl.' Marilyn was always grateful to Hughes, and she told me that if she ever met him, she'd like to thank him for 'starting it all/" This is the gospel according to a new biography about the late star written by Robert F. Slatzer-who incidentally reveals that he was once married to Marilyn. From "The Life and Curious Death of Marilyn Monroe" (Pinnacle House, $8.95). UNQUOTE. What affacta marriagaa to the extent that couples move to separate beds, separate rooms, separation and divorce? Snoring. It is a problem for 25 million Americans — men, women and their families—according to the Medical and Pharmaceutical Information Bureau in New York City. In some cases, where people have blocked noses, minor surgery is a cure. If snoring is caused by nasal congestion due to a cold, sinus trouble or hay fever, antihistamines can bring relief. Other factors that lead to snoring? Fatigue, obesity, general poor health and too much smoking. People who snore only when they sleep on their backs need to learn to sleep on their sides. If all else fails, the AMA prescribes earplugs for the entire family. THE FOOLPROOF CHECK Can 1984 b* far bahind? Tha day la naar when you won't be able to get a check cashed without first being fingerprinted. A new system of fingerprint endorsement is being used in several parts of the country to identify people and track down the millions of dollars worth of bad checks passed every year. When a person wants to cash a check he must first get his fingerprint permanently affixed on the back, making it easy to check' his identity against FBI, police and immigration records. The Indicator, the machine that photographs, the print, was designed by a former chief of detectives in Los Angeles, Hugh MacDonak}. A check writer's print is affixed to the check (next to the endorsement signature) . Then the check is fed into a machine that develops the print, permanently recording it on the back of the check.

When they are out, as sure as sin, They let you know that they want in. Oh, dogs and cats may differ much: They're not the same to. sight or touch. One scratches, purrs. One barks and bites. Oft each one with the other fights. One climbs a tree. One stays beneath With upward look and scary teeth. In common, though, one thing they've got: They both would be where they are not.
