NWM tnt., IM. DEAR ABBY: You discouraged a reader who wanted to acquire a chimpanzee for a pet, saying: "When a chimp reaches sexual maturity, he becomes frustrated, ill-tempered and unpredictable." As an anthropologist-father of three teen-agers, I would like to point out that you can sell a mature, healthy chimp to a zoo for twice what you paid for it as an infant—or take a comparable tax deduction. Thus you have all the rewards of living with an enthusiastic, outgoing, affectionate youngster until he becomes an adolescent, after which you have your investment back as well. On the other hand, your enthusiastic, outgoing, affectionate human youngster also becomes "frustrated, ill-tempered and unpredictable" when he reaches sexual maturity. What then?' Do you know of any zoo that will make a deal? There is much to be said in favor of raising chimps. NEAL KORN: VAN NUYS, CAL. DEAR SIR: That's what I need in my column—more "kom." Paging Malcolm S. Forbes: How about doing a story in Forbes on the tax advantages of raising chimps instead of kids? Or do you think the country has had enough tax-deductible monkey business? DEAR ABBY: Tell "Love Chimps" that, if she reaUy loves them, she will forget about acquiring one for a pet, and she'll leave them where they belong—in the wild. Tell her that the baby chimp she thinks is so cute was pulled off its dead mother's breast. (To capture a wild baby chimpanzee, its mother must be killed!) And please tell her that, if she really loves chimps, she will support her local zoo. Also, if she can afford to contribute a little something to a nonprofit, tax-exertipt foundation, dedicated to study, preservation and propagation of the chimpanzee, to consider the Primate Foundation of Arizona, P. O. Box 86, Tempo, Ariz. Thank you, Abby. JO FRITZ: SECRETARY DEAR ABBY: I told my son and his wife I would be happy to babysit for them free of charge if anything important came up. ll'm a widow who babysits for extra money, which comes in handy these days.) My daughter-in-law told me that a course in landscaping was offered at the high school every Thursday evening for ten weeks and she and my son wanted to take it, so I agreed to babysit while they attended these classes.

Soviet Union, China Quietly Square Off I felt so hurt and angry because I had been deceived, so I called my daughter-in-law and told her what I had learned. She laughed as if it was a big joke, then said: "Oh, how did you find out?" I told her the truth, and she said: "Well, we didn't think you'd sit for us if you knew we were taking dancing lessons." And she acted like there was nothing wrong with what they had done. What do you think of this, Abby? And what should I do now? DISAPPOINTED DEAR DISAPPOINTED: I think your son and his wife should be ashamed of themselves. Let them know you will not be available for any more free babysitting unless it's for something important, and for which they can provide proofi By Oswald & James Jacoby Jim: "How about a week where we use nothing but good, old-fashioned, simply bidding and reasonably simply play?" Oswald: "I assume you have some hands in mind." Jim: "As a starter look at this one. North opens one dia* mond. South responds one heart and jumps to the heart game when North rebids one notrump to show a minimum hand of balanced distribution." Oswald: "I assume that dummy's 10 of diamonds holds the first trick and it is up to him to go right after Closed Season On Lobster Harmon W. Shields, executive director of the Department of Natural Resources, reminds everyone of the closed season on Florida lobster which began at midnight, March 31, and will last until Aug. 1. "The lobster are appearing along the northwest coast of Florida In greater numbers than usual," said Shields. He added that arrest citations will be issued to violators by the Florida Marine Patrol and other law enforcement officers. Hoop Tourney The athletic section at the Tyndall base gym will conduct an NBA type One-on-One Basketball Tournament beginning July 15. This will be a single elimination tournament with an entry fee of $1, which will be used to purchase a trophy and to discourage forfeits. trumps. He may make a lot of tricks if a simple finesse works, but if he tries it this time the hand will collapse. West will take his king and lead a club. East will win the trick and lead a diamond for West to ruff. Then West will talte another club and write down SO points on the score." Jim: South's first round heart finesse would be an unnecessary luxury. He should play his ace of trumps first, then entered dummy with a high spade in order to lead a second trump. This would hold the defense to one trump and two clubs which would not be enough to do them any good." (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.)

MOSCOW - (LENS) - The Soviet helicopter and its three-man crew that were seized by the Chinese three months ago ought by now to hpve had the Russians frothing at the mouth. At one stage they did give a warning that unless the helicopter were returned the Chinese would have to take the "inevitable conse- luences". But that was in pril: since then the mailed 1 fist has been discreetly withdrawn. Soviet ultimatums have given way to moderately phrased requests for consular access to the crew. Russia has even called in the International Red Cross - the first time it has been involved in a dispute between communist states. And in the Soviet press the inflammatory articles recall- mg alleged atrocities by Chinese troops in the border fighting of 1969 have disap- )eared as abruptly as they legan. This new tactic does not imply any improvement in relations between Russia and China. In the looking-glass world of that contronlation it means just the reverse. That, was illustrated by Russia's recent offer to allow Chinese merchant ships to use what were termed Soviet internal waterways" near the Amur and Ussuri border rivers. These "internal waterways" were in fact disputed territory, and the Soviet offer was conditional on China renouncing its territorial claims. Wnat was dressed up as an olive branch was just a device to enhance Russia's appearance of benevolence LAVENDER 8801 W. Hwy. 98 Panomo City Beach, Flo.
