Three years ago Melinda was diagnosed as having brain cancer and her family, burdened with medical bills, was forced to go on welfare. After a series of articles in a Washington paper, help was received from different parts of the country. This is a recent file photo. ' l tea" i Chess mate By Glenn E. Beidel Some quotes about the game Here are quotations from 10 famous personalities chess and other fames. "Last night I dreamed that I had died. Naturally I headed for heaven. As I neared the portals, I was hailed by St. Peter, asking who I was. 'I am Alekhine!' I hastened to explain. But the statement made no impression. 'I am Alekhine, chess champion of the world,' I reiterated. 'Sorry,' said St. Peter, shaking his head. 'There is no room in heaven for chessplayers.' My spirit was dejected. Before leaving the pearly gates, I took one last look around, Eureka ! Whom did I spy? Why none other than my good friend Bogolyubov. Quickly I drew St. Peter's attention to my rotund crony. "There's Bogolyubov. He's a chessplayer.' St. Peter smiled sadly. 'He only THINKS he's a chessplayer.'" Alexander Alekhine 1 "Chess books should be used as we use glasses to assist the sight; although some players make use of them as if they thought they conferred sight." Capablanca There's not the mystery in 10 murders that there is one gams of chess." Arthur Conan Doyle "They're all weak, all women. They're stupid compared to men. They shouldn't play chess, you know. They're like beginners. They lose every single game against a man. There isn't a woman player in the world I can't give knight-odds to and still beat." Bobby Fischer "Chess is a great game. No matter how good one is, there is always somebody better. No matter how bad one is, there is always somebody worse." I. A. Horowitz "For me, chess is at the same time a game, a sport, a science and an art. And perhaps even more than that. There is something hard to explain to those who do not know the game well. One must first learn to play it correctly in order later to savor its richness." Bent Larsen "In the beginning of the game ignore the search for combinations, abstain from violent moves, aim for small advantages, accumulate them, and only after having attained these ends search for the combination and then with all the power of will and intellect, because then the combination must exist, however deeply hidden." Emanuel Lasker "Chess is a terrible game. If you have no center, your opponent has a freer position. If you do have a center, then you really have something to worry about!" Tarrasch "A game is always won through a mistake, either the opponent's or one's own." Tartakover "The passion for playing chess is one of the most unaccountable in the world. It slaps the theory of natural selection in the face. It is the most absorbing of occupations, the least satisfying of desires, an aimless excrescence upon life. It annihilates a man.. .There is no remorse like the remorse of chess." H.G. Wells Come to the South Penn Chess Gub for fun, excitement and challenge with chess play for all types and skill levels of players every Thursday, 7:30 p.m. at the Municipal Recreation Center.

Another possibility and option to 11 NxBP is 11 B-N6 which threatens 12 BxBP mate and the loss of the queen, 12 QxQ, and only one can be prevented. The opening is rarely seen In modern master play because it lacks a direct threat on the center and allows Black to equalize on the third move, but is sometimes used for shock value.

But we can control the family food bugget. In spite of high food prices, many people continue to have very poor food shopping habits. They are concerned when hamburger costs 1.29 a pound, but don't blink an eye at paying 99 cents for a pound of snack-type crackers. They complain that a single piece of fruit costs 15 cents, but think nothing of paying that amount for a candy bar or a bottle of soft drink. In other words when it comes to selecting nutritious foods for their families many people are not really careful shoppers. Much of the food dollar continues to go for foods that provide only small amounts of the essential nutrients individuals need to be in the best possible health. It is estimated that highly V ( Homemakers hints By Nancy L. Hogg Home economist overs. With careful planning from beginning to end the battle can be won for tasty, nutritious meals that don't bankrupt the budget. processed convenience foods currently account for about 70 per cent df the average American diet. In the last decade consumption of enriched white flour decreased 41 per cent, fresh milk decreased 19 per cent, and fruits and vegetables decreased 10 per cent. Over the same decade, consumption of baked products increased 65 per cent, soft drinks increased 76 per cent, and potato chips and snacks increased 83 per cent. If you are really concerned about food prices, you will carefully analyze your own food shopping practices. Do you concentrate on foods that provide the essential proteins, vitamins, and minerals your family needs? Wise selection of foods from the four food groups should do this. Do you cut back on the amount of fancy baked products and more expensive convenience foods when food prices are high? Do you spend a minimum amount of soft drinks, candy, potato chips and other empty calorie foods and beverages? Perhaps Mary, Sidney should seek solution Loving free "Loving Free" explores problems of marriage and family living. The McDonalds are a suburban couple with four children. Paula is an artist and Dick is president of an advertising agency. By PAULA MCDONALD And DICK MCDONALD DICK; What happens when the rooster marries the owl? Their marriage is likely to lay an egg right on the breakfast table. PAULA: We spent an unhappy evening with Sidney Sunshine and Mary Moonbeam recently. All they did was squabble about breakfast in their home. , Sidney is a morning man. He leaps out of bed, flings open the curtains, does 20 quick push-ups and blows a kiss to the rising sun. He also wants two fried eggs, over easy, 15 minutes after his toes touch the floor. . Sidney nauseates Mary in the morning. DICK: Mary is marvelous at midnight. But, at 7 a.m., she bunches the blankets over her brain and moans. The worst trauma of her day is hearing someone speak out loud before she's had two cups of coffee. The second shock each morning is feeling the muffled vibrations as Sidney bounces around the bedroom. The third is trying to fix breakfast. She hates the whole morning scene and Sidney simply can't understand why. For years, he's been trying to change Mary, without success. PAULA: Personally, I sympathize with Mary's plight. Some of us are not capable of coping with early morning routines. In the interest of preserving marital bliss, Dick and I stopped saying, "good morning," to each other about five years ago. And it's been about the same length of time since I last tried to shove a steaming bowl of oatmeal in front of my children. You have to determine just what your family needs in the way of food and how much of the budget you can spend for it. Every family has differences, and that's why food needs vary. Is yours a family of growing children, active teenagers, a father who does heavy manual work, or are they more sedentary? Take into account food likes and dislikes. There is no point in spending money on foods the family doesn't like. Keep an eye open for store specials. Use a shopping list but allow for unadvertised specials. Wasted food is money down the drain. So handle food carefully to prevent spoilage. Cook the quantity you'll need to avoid needless left- Nothing works for me in the morning. Not my mouth, my brain nor my reflexes. I am frequently black-and-blue from ricochetting off the stove and onto the refrigerator. I sit hunched over my coffee cup for the first half hour of each day, hoping my brain will soon slip into gear. I don't want to be talked to, cuddled, touched or kissed goodbye. I don't even want a smile. I hate the pre-brunch world and just can't help it. DICK: Fortunately, I'm a slow starter, too. But, unlike Mary and Sidney, Paula and I have learned to live without- early morning camaraderie in our house. We used to make such desperate attempts to be civil at breakfast and, always wound up fighting ' instead over the newspaper, the toast crumbs, the jam jar. Even a word was enough to start a snapping session. Then one year, we got wise to ourselves. We stopped trying to act out the silly charade of the happy, hearty family at breakfast. We're not happy at breakfast,; we're miserable. We stopped preten ding otherwise. Now, no one talks in the morning and the silence is soothing. Three equally crabby teens stumble around going through their pre-school rituals. Our 11-year-old son bounces through the house, smiling and we all try to ignore his glaring personality defect. The family meets again at lunch. We speak; we even laugh and by then we love each other. That works for us. Morning doesn't and never will. Maybe Mary and Sidney should stop striving for the impossible and figure out what works for them. ENDURA WATCHES Vl OFF THRU M 8th PARK AVE.
