She took R o m e o's hand out of the board, looked it over carefully and murmured, "Romeo, Romeo, wherefore has't thou not raised by suit, Romeo?" Romeo, who was looking at the next hand, did not answer. When the game was over he showed her that 4iis plus 130 for making four diamonds undoubted was an absolute top score. Club bidders had all reached six or failed to find the way to make five. Romeo on the other hand had really given diamonds a magnificent play and deserved his to West's ace and a second heart to dummy's king. Now Romeo ruffed a third heart to get to his hand and led a second one of his trump equals. West won and led a fourth heart which Romeo trumped. He led his high trump and didn't worry when East showed out. He would make the hand anyway. He led a club toward dummy.'West couldn't afford to trump and .now Romeo played ace of spades, ruffed a spade and led another club. It didn't matter if West trumped or discarded, Juliet's club and spade king .were sure to win tricks. Early spade leads would have defeated the contract, but once the defense got started on hearts, Romeo was home. (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.)

A likable, handsome fellow. Good manners and smooth. He never had to buy his favors from the pitiful little native girls. So charming was he, they were pleased to accommodate him with no pay. Then he returned to the states and married my sister hi law. I thought he would settle down like the rest of us, but he is still a Don Juan with the ladies, and can make love to his best friend's wife, cool as a cucumber, 10 minutes before her husband is due home. This character has a small business, heavily mortgaged. Also a home, likewise encumbered. His wife has to hold an outside job to help meet the payments. She is an attractive, loving} wife and a good mother. She's left alone so often at night you'd think she'd catch on, but she believes his stories of "having to work late," or "meet an old friend." , I haven't even told my wife what I know. I have seen so many wives slaving outside the home while their husbands always seem to have enough money to entertain girl friends. Is this part of a woman's fate? What should I do? DISTURBED DEAR DISTURBED: You could try to get your brother in law to shape up, but from your description of him, he's not likely to change a winning formula. There is no such thing as "a woman's fate." There have always been good, trusting women whose charming husbands have managed to deceive them for years. It evens out the. Some good, trusting husbands slave away while their two-timing wives play the same game. DEAR ABBY: My husband has asked me not to run the dishwasher while he is in the shower because it makes the shower water cold. Every now and then I forget, so when I do, he pours a glass of cold water on my back when I'm In the tub. He says it's not in the spirit of revenge. It's just a "reminder." I'd like your opinion. CHILLED IN SUMTER, N. C. DEAR CHILLED: I'm sure it's a "reminder"— but no matter what he says, it's also revenge. DEAR ABBY: Our daughter ran away and married her first cousin, which has had us in an uproar ever since. We have heard it is against the law for first cousins to marry in Illinois because there is a> good chance that their kids will not be right in the head. We were against this marriage for other reasons which' I don't want to mention because this is a small town and the situation would be well-known here. Since our daughter and her cousin are both over 21, is there anything we can do about it? UPSET IN ILLINOIS DEAR UPSET: Marriage between first consuls is considered "incestuous" in Illinois. However a petition for annulment must be filed in the court to dissolve the marriage. Your daughter should see an attorney. DEAR ABBY: This is for TOO LATE, the weeping widow who now regrets having neglected her married sex life because she was always "too tired," and found out after her husband's death that her chronic lack of energy was due to anemia. I agree with her. Women should have routine medical checkups. But there are lots of us who are always tired, yet because we love our husbands we do not neglect them in this way. Besides, why worry about an exhausting mile and a half stretch when the old boy may be capable of only a short, snappy six furlongs? GRANDMA What's your problem? You'll feel better if you get it off your cheit. Write to ABBY, Box 69700, Los Angeles. Cal. M08». For a personal reply enclose stamped, addressed envelope.
