Langham, international representative of United P a p e r m a k e r s and Paperworkers, the settlement of Aug. 30 is for three years with wages and benefits retroactively effective from Aug.l. Total amount of the packages was in excess of $1.(W million, said Langham, who added modernization adjustments will be discii.s.sed later, S|)okesmen for the unions were Langham; L.M.

DeLoach, Beef Reaction Is Mixed Here Lifting of the beef ceiling at midnight-Sunday cau.sed a variety of reactions in local sui)f!rmarkets. Smith's Big Eight Super Market reported beef i)rices on Monday wore the same as last week. A representative for the supermarket foresees no great increase in prices of beef in the immediate future, and said the sale of beef on Monday was normal. On the other hand, Harold T. Phillips of Phillips Wholesale Meats and Seafoods, said there has been a decrease of about eight cents a pound on cattle. Phillips said business in beef sales was normal in his store.

Pass Pass Pass Opening lead—V6 By Oswald & James Jacoby If you can keep from looking at either the South or the East hands you can get full enjoyment out of today's article. We will make you West and compel you to lead the six of hearts against South's three no- trump contract. Your partner wins the trick with the ace and returns the queen. South follows with the deuce to the first lead and the five- spot to the second lead. If you let your partner hold the trick and he has the three of hearts in his hand he will continue and you will set declarer two tricks. If he doesn't hold that little card, declarer will have time to knock out your ace of diamonds before you can cash more than three heart tricks and will make his contract. If you overtake your partner's queen and play the nine- spot you will set up two more heart tricks and beat the contract unless declarer can collect eight tricks in the black suits. What do you do? The answer is that you should overtake. You will look mighty silly if your play gives him the contract, but the odds are against his being able to take eight tricks in the black suits and you want to beat him if you possibly can do so.

Webb said a gi'eater increase of up to five cents per [) o u n (1 0 c c u r r e d with wholesale beef priccis, but he feels prices will come down in a week. Beef liuying at Piggly Wiggly Store No. One was reported aver'age. In genei'al, the situation at the supermarkets concer'ning beef prices is unstable at the moment. Wade Parker, general manriger of the Pacific Meat Co. in Portland, Ore., said "The retail price (of beef) could go up as much as 10 cents a pound. The housewife's going to tell us. If she buys, the beef will move right along and the price will go up. If she resists, it's going to stay down..." But the consumer is not the sole determiner of meat prices. A spokesman for Armour & Co. agreed that a lot depends on the consumer. But he added: "It depends on farmers too. They may try to hold out or may decide they'd better sell...What we're really saying is that we don't know what's going to happen." If prices of beef do go up, Florida Game and Fresh Water Commission officials say they're afraid this may trigger more poaching in the state this fall. An assistant to the commission's law enforcement's chief, Maj. Jim Jordan, says the most popular target of the poachers is deer, which is the best source of beef substitute in the state, although the illegal hunting market includes rabbit, quail, raccoon and ducks. Jordan said the commission had noted a recent increase in poaching "but so far we haven't been able to tell if it's been a .serious increase."

Tuesday,.Sep «enilM >r 11, Vm PtiKeH County Seeks Attorney Aid What bothers senior citizens? By Abigail Van Buren c IW »/ cmcato Tntune-N. Y. Newt Sina., Inc. DEAR ABBY: Thanks for a-sking us senior citizens what our biggest problems are, and if we have none, how we manage to enjoy life. had my 74th birthday and never felt better in my life. I walk a mile a day, stay away from boring old people, desserts, and redheaded women. I enjoy a little nip every evening before dinner, but never touch a drop before noon, no matter who's celebrating what. ART IN SIOUX CITY DEAR ABBY: My biggest problem is finding enough time to do the many interesting and helpful things that retirement makes possible. I've been retired for two years and I am busier now than when I was working fulltime. The secret of a happy old age is to try to forget the years, the infirmities, and to bury yourself in the service of others. Churches and community organizations are begging for help. Everyone can be a volunteer—even if he's bedfast. There is always someone worse off than you! MRS. J. W. H., PHILADELPHIA DEAR ABBY: I am 67 years old, and I am crazy. I got this way taking care of my mother who is 92. She is positively the most impossible woman who ever lived. Unfortunately, she is in better health than I am. I'd sign this but she'd kill me. STUCK IN ENCINO DEAR ABBY: My problem wasn't mentioned in your list. It's impotence, which causes many of us men to feel depressed and dejected. We love our wives, but we can't perform. After the doctor completes our checkups, he smiles and says: "Sex is all in your head." That's humbug! Here we are in Florida, home of the Fountain of Youth, but like Ponce de Leon, we can't find the well. READY, WILLING, BUT NOT ABLE DEAR ABBY: Now that I'm retired, I've never been happier. I went back to school and took German and typing and even a course in electricity. I've studied handwriting analysis, too. I re-roofed my own home, ran the concrete and made my own patio, put up my own fence, and did my own landscaping. I do temporary office work, not because I need the money, but because I like to get out and see what's going on in the world. I've taken genealogy jaunts and compiled 23 notebooks on my family tree. One's mental attitude has a lot to do with one's energy. And having a great grandmother who lived to be 101 didn't hurt either. [P. S. I'm a woman.] MAKING OUT IN ORLANDO DEAR ABBY: I'm only a kid of 92. Do I quaUfy for senior citizenship? I don't have any problems, but I've got a lot of relatives who are going to have plenty when I die. I'm leaving everything to the church. GRANDPA IN PHOENIX DEAR ABBY: My problem is controlling my anger when people refer to me as a "SENIOR CITIZEN." Whoever thought up that ridiculous label? I ani 89 years old, and I'm still active. I keep my aches and pains to myself, take an interest in my home, my church, and my community, and do what I can for the other fellow. That's all it takes to stay young. HAPPY IN SUN CITY DEAR ABBY: I am 83 and have no problems. Death took my two good wives. Did not dare to try for a third. Afraid I'd get a lemon. I bowl in four leagues and enjoy church. I give better than one tenth of my income to God because He lets me live well. ANDY IN JOHNSON CITY, N. Y. DEAR ABBY: You ask senior citizens to tell you their troubles. Money? It's not stretching as far as it used to. Health? Even machines wear out. I live alone and make the best of it. Boredom? Not really. I sew, play cards, work crossword puzzles, watch TV, read a lot, and love to write letters. I also do my own housekeeping and take the bus to go places. I am only 82. I am also your late mother's cousin. BERTHA RUSHALL MACFARLAND DEAR ABBY: I'm an "older woman" who stands 5 feet 8 inches tall, and I cannot find a dress to cover my knees! C. P. IN ILLINOIS DEAR ABBY: I'm a 78-year-old lady, living alone. And my biggest problem is finding someone to turn my mattress.
