Security Bank COMPLETE TRUST SERVICE Gates Lost $10a0000n Turn Of Card NE;W YORK (AP) — Thing* a columnist might never Icnow if he didn't open his mail: America's highway accident toll now costs mofre than U billion a month in economic loasea. Or, $200-plus each year lor every U.S. family. Splurgers at Las Vegaa would be hard put to match the gaudi- neas of the gambUng at Saratoga, N.y., In its heyday. "Bet-a- million" gates once loet $100,000 on the turn of a single card there, and the i&mOua beauty, Lilliam Russell, whp cured her morning hiccups with champagne, paraded a apanlel wearing an Sl,800 diamond collar. Fun is where you find it. The puffer fish, which swims in Africa's Congo River, blows itself into the shape of a ball when frightened. So the thrifty natives, after thoroughly scaring the fish into a globe of fear, use it to play soccer. The years'* worst pun: Tony Curtii tells of the gta-l who stopped going with a guy because she heard he was a "no account bum." It was his bank who said he had no account. Quotable notables: "The secret of happinets Is this: Let your interestt be as wide as possible, and let your reactions to the tilings and persons that interest you be, as far as possible, friendly rather than hos- tUe." — Bertrand Russell.

"I want to give it to my wife tor Oirist- mas," he explained. Finding parking spaces tor people, not motor cars, may be a major problem of the 21st century. The world population is growing by 8,000 every hour. At this rate earth's inhabitants, who totaled 3.3 billion in 1985, by 1985 may number five billion. Edible pets: The goldfish which Western peoples raise for pleasure liave for centuries been raised by the Chinese tar food. Worth remembering: "Yes, we did produce a near perfect repubUc. But, wiU they keep it, or will they, fn the enjoyment of plenty, lose the memory of freedom? Material abundance with* out character is the surest way to destruction." — Thomas Jefferson. Forklore: » will bring bad luck to look In a mirror by candlelight. A mole is a sign of future wealth but not if the mole is the kind that niins the looks of your lawn). You'll sweep up fresh trouble if you take along an old broom when you move into a new home. A ghrl who helpt sew a meumlng drm for a young widow will heirielf be soon married. Forgotten hiroe*: Walter Gant, a career bachelor in Wakefield, England, served as best man at 4S weddings, and thereby probably had more raw rice flung in his face than uiy other man In history.
