This lowers the cost of heating the water, and enables the pool to remain open year-round. The balls weigh only 3.8 grams each. This means that swimming can be done without any hindrance from the "blanket." "High bipod pressure, a major factor today in premature death from coronary disease, stroke, and also kidney disease, is strongly influenced by heredity. The brothers and sisters of any patient going to a doctor for high blood pressure are eight times as likely as other people to have high blood pressure themselves. If both your parents have had high blood pressure the chances are about 45 percent for you, and if one parent, 30 percent." From "How Not to Die Young," by Dr. Joan Gomez (Steinand Day, $6.98). BUDDY EBSEN A Broderick Crawford he's not Actor Buddy Ebsen, TVs "Bamaby Jones," talks about the di£Bculties of learning lines: "When I started 'The Beverly Hillbillies,' I learned every word. For two years I had headaches. So I learned to 'wing' it. By that I mean that instead of sitting down every night with a tape recorder and learning the script verbatim, I use word association, with sounds, locations,* and so forth. If you asked me today what I said yesterday, I coukln't tell you! I once saw Broderick Crawford come on a set, scan a page of dialogue—and he had it. Every word!

BIRTHDAY PEOPLE: ^ Cliff Robertson & Jacqueline Bisset Quips & Quotes ARMOUR'S ARMOURY By Richard Armour ROBED THE WRONG WAY There is a bathrobe that I wear That has two moth holes and a tear. It has no style, indeed it's drapeless; It's wrinkled, rumpled, sadly shapeless. But it, for me, is fine and dandy: It's always hanging where it's handy. It's not too heavy, not too thin. It fits me like another sidn. Oh yes, 1 know it's old and ratty And makes me, I am sure, look batty. But who's to see me? That's the trick: The doctor, maybe, when I'm sick, My wife, my children; others not— I'd lose what status I have got. THROUGH A CHILD'S EYES Kids see life differently.

Having one daughter five yeju^ old and a son three years old, we were pleased that our third child was another little girl. On my arrival home with the brand new baby, my daughter sat next to me. I was talking about my two beautiful little daughters when my son rambled over and asked sullenly, "Momma, do you like them girls better than me?"
