In return he gave them all the prizes he won. When thev broke watch they never had it re paired. They just asked him to enter another con test. Jingle Jack's most famous rhyme is: "Cross at the green, not in between. Pause at the red, in safety you will tread. His prize was a Thanksgiving pudding; large enough for him, his wife and i i if " ? 1 Jack Gasnick Prizes Mesa Nothing their daughters, Debbie, 15. and Ellen, 19, a student at Pratt Institute. In his time he's won cash, U.S. bonds, grosses of candy. TV and radio sets, trips to Disneyland and tn Vevada "But the prizes mean nothing," said Jack in hi3 J busthn? store. "I have to rhyme, that s all. In 32 vears I won 250 out of 270 contests. Once I entered 12 under different names and won them all. No jingle writer ever beat me." Jack, pleasant, nervous and 43. is not a professional contestant. He and his brother run a prosperous plumbing supply house their father founded 55 years ago. The rhymes were always a relief from the pressures of business. Some Samples Jack now prints them on balloons he gives children and on gum labels he pastes on saws, power drill, insecticides, or anything he thinks requires caution. He pays for this himself. He pulled a few stickers out and read them: "Careful glances cut accident chances." "Don't be half-safe. Ten fingers are your flock. Don't be half-safe. N'o extras are in stock." His career as a last-line poet began before he was in his teens. He was caught riding his bike "no hands." Reduced to the ignoble rank of a pedestrian he retrieved his bike with his first safety slogan: "Safety begins between the ears." The muse smiled on him when a3 a schoolboy he eot a summer job in a building full of music publishers. He listened carefully to the songwriters talking about their lyrics. Won Subscription "So I beean writing some," Jack said. "Then I discovered if I wrote a limerick about skating, candy or dogs I could get skates, a carton of chocolates and enough dog food to feed my pup for a month. My only disappointment was when I tried for a new bike. All I got was a bell." For reasons which still escape him he won a By GEORGE: Poor Pen Pal DEAR GEORGE: I have this fabulously handsome boy friend at college and, well, how can I be absolutely sure he's not out there fooling around with some shapely coed? P.S.: He hasn't written since October. WORRIED DEAR WORRIED: It's ridiculous how you females are always worrying about such things.

Inc.) subscription to a Boy Scout magazine with this: Wrinkles are but folds of fat that the woes of life begat. Dimples, quite the other way, show a life of fun and play." His rhymes jingled successfully for cigarettes, sodas, beer and girdles. He coined the word "underlie" for the padding used on too-slender maids and sang "Beautify with underlie. Falsify with underlie," thereby creating "Falsies." "The contests ended because three others and myself were winning. all of them," Jack said. Balloons, Too So he turned to safety only. He sends his stickers and balloons and the little one-page paper he prints twice a year at his own expense to schools, boys clubs. Y's. PTA croups, telephone and utility companies all over the country, who print them in their papers or enclose them with the bills. Examples: "Vinnie thought he had a chance and through the light he flew. But on the seat of his best pants. his dad gave him a Tew. Use air with care, in a balloon or tire, or you will share the air with a flyer." "Archery is a pleasant game. Draw the bow and then take aim. If the target yuu don't see, you are shooting carelessly." Jack composes at night, on weekends, while subway strap-hangintr. Sometimes he misses completely. Other times he composes 100 on a weekend. One hundred? He answered in rhyme: "I never, never ever lie and would vou know the reason why? I've found that joy don't follow. if the truth you try to swallow.

A hernia may develop at any of these spots provided the openings were sealed off improperly. 1 he inguinal hernia, the most common type, usually is found in men. The testes of the unborn male are in the abdomen and des cend to the outside via the in guinal canal shortly before birth.

The weakened area gives way in others when coughing, straining, or lifting a heavy object. The protrusion is small at first, but may enlarge in time. The sac usually contains loops of the intestine. The hernia is a potential source of danger. When the opening is small and a loop of intestine gets into the sac but cannot get out, strangulation occurs. The small opening pinches off the blood supply and unless surgery is done the bowel becomes gangrenous. HERNIA SURGERY G. H. writes: How soon after double hernia surgery can a person drive a car?
