Or if South had simply played low from dummy as he should have, everything would have worked <jut nicely. Even after playing the queen of diamonds. South could have made 10 tricks if he had let East hold the first trick." Jim: "I'll show the play after letting East hold that first trick. East's best return is a diamond. South must go up with the ace, enter dummy with a trump, ruff a club, enter dummy with a second trump, ruff a second club, go to dummy with another trump, ruff out dummy's last club and finally throw West in with a diamond." Oswald: "West's best lead will be a spade. If he leads low, South must stick in dummy's nine. If he leads the jack, South must cover with dummy's queen." Jim: "Either way. East is end-played and forced to give South . the rest of the tricks." Oswald: "I mentioned transfer bids earlier. Actually, this South hand is not one that really cries out for use of a transfer bid since sometimes it is better to keep the really unbalanced hand concealed." (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.)

Inc.] DEAR ABBY: My husband never empties his pockets when he changes, and as a result of his negligence, I have ruined two of his watches and destroyed important papers that were in his wallet and ended up in my washer. He says I should always look thru the pockets before putting anything in the machine. I say, he should have enough common sense to take care of his personal belongings, and if he is so careless and stupid as to leave things in his pockets, it's not my fault. Who is correct? ->JUST WONDERING DEAR JUST: Not yon, Lady. I DEAR ABBY: Five months ago, when we got married I already pregnant, but we were in love and the term "have to" never entered our minds. We are both 20. My parents have never let us live it down. We had a beautiful church wedding, but my parents would not let us send out formal invitations or wedding announcements because they didn't want the date of our wedding advertised knowing a baby would be born before nine months had passed. I am only two months from delivery now, and my mother has decided that we shouldn't send out any birth announcements either. Abby, my husband and I are very happy over the birth of our first child and don't see why we can't proudly tell the world about our baby when it comes. All my mother cares about is saying her face. She thinks'it will reflect on her and Dad if the world knows their daughter was pregnant when she got married. I would like your opinion. —PROUD AND HAPPY DEAR PROUD: While I can understand your pride and happiness, I can also understand your mother's reluctance to "advertise" the fact thai yon were with child when yon were married. However, the baby is yours to advertise as you wish, and the sending of birth announcements is your decision—not your mother's. DEAR ABBY: I am a freshman at college and this is my first experience at being away from home. I wonder if parents realize how much their children look forward to mail from home? I am lucky because my parents write to me faithfully. Some parents haven't even written their children once since September! I only wish I could send parents a picture of their child's face when he sees an empty mailbox. I know most parents are busy, but if they would just sit down and write a letter every few weeks, or even a postcard, it would give the away-from-home college student the lift he needs. —KAREN DEAR KAREN: Are yon patting me on? I hear from parents constantly complaining that their away-from-home kids never write, the parents finally have to call long distance to find out If the kids are sick or wen. I'll print your letter, Karen; perhaps it will provide the stimulus both parents and kids need to keep each other happy. DEAR ABBY: These days any couple who celebrates fifty years of marriage deserve a medal with a combat ribbon! My parents recently celebrated their golden wedding anniversary, and they received one of the cleverest gifts imaginable. It was a gold-plated 1921 silver dollar, suspended on a W. W. I medal, attached to a combat ribbon. It was ceremoniously presented to them in a velvet-lined box by their daughter, who was a three-time loser. ' —LACUNA BEACH What't your problem?

So I recorded her favorite songs and stories on a cassette I tape. Now all I have to do I when she wants me to play with her is to pop the tape in the player and turn it on. She calls the tape "my record," and really enjoys ; it. It also keeps her occupied until I have time to play with her. Mrs. D.

DEAR HELOISE: With six daughters and one son I need all the extra time I can find. Here is how I mark my girls' belongings. I keep six needles threaded with a full six strands of embroidery thread, In different colors, In my sewing basket. Upon, purchase, I tag all socks, underpants and undershirts with their special color. Socks through toes; underpants at backwaist and undershirts at back top. When stitching is completed, simply cut at one and one-half intervals and square knot the embroidery cotton. My four-year-old can now help me sort and identify the daily laundry. Kay * * « DEAR HELOISE: This hint is great for people who have a beautiful heavy chenille colonial bedspread with a circular design on it. . I always had trouble lining up my bedspread so it would be even on all sides of the bed and the design would be centered. By accident one day, I lined it up perfectly, so in order to know the exact position, I sewed a small clear button on each spot of the spread where the mattress curves at the foot of the bed. I just make sure now that each button is on its corner and everything lines up just right. If you like to mix or blend your colors, color buttons can be used. J. G. • * * * LETTER OF LAUGHTER DEAR HELOISE: I have been married to two snoring men, so here's how I take care of the situation . . . I wake him up, turn him on his side and plant a pillow behind him. No more snoring. Mrs. R. G. * * * DEAR HELOISE: I had scissor trouble. My scissors wouldn't fit even diagonally in the drawer of my metal sewing chest. My troubles are over now. I put a large magnetic hook in the end of the sewing chest and now can hang two pairs of scissors on it. I'm so proud of myself. Mrs. Gay McAllister » * * DEAR HELOISE: I bake bread for my family every week and have come up with this idea to avoid some of the messy clean-up afterwards. I let my bread dough rise in the oven by placing it over a pan of hot water. Instead of using a metal pan to hold 1 the water, I use the oven-proof bowl I mixed the dough in. This not only prevents having to dig out one more pan, but It soaks all of the bread dough off the sides of the bowl and makes cleaning it very simple. L. G.
