Hints From Heloise DEAR HELOISE: I am an antique hound. I'm one of those people who spend hours rummaging in antique shops wherever I happen to be. Recently, -I found a heavy iron shoe form that the shoemakers used for a last. And, it had a hole in the middle of it. I made a delightful candleholder from it. I painted It, glued felt on the bottom to protect my furniture and a candle fitted perfectly In the middle. A perfect way to preserve a relic of the past. Debbie * * * A shoemakers' children may not have shoes, but future generations In your family will have a "lasting" artifact of a by-gone era.

None vulnerable West North East South 2N.T. Pass 3* Pass 3* Pass 4 A Pass Pass Pass Opening lead—V Q By Oswald & James Jacoby South won the opening heart lead and went right after trumps. East cashed his ace and led a second heart. South won with his king. Later on South had to lose both the club and diamond finesses plus a heart to go down one trick. South criticized North for his Stayman three-club bid. He pointed out that with a 4-3-3-3 distribution, North should have just raised to three no-trump. North agreed that this might have been a better bid but pointed out that South should have made four spades. The winning line of play would be to forget all about finesses and play the ace and jack 'of diamonds after winning the heart lead. This would set up dummy's queen of diamonds for a heart discard before the defense i had time to set up a trick in that suit. We feel both South and North are correct but that no real crime was committed. We would prefer a raise to three no-trump with the North hand, but can set up many hands where four spades would be a better contract. The play is also close. South needed one of two finesses to make four spades the way he played the hand. This was- a 75 per cent chance. North's suggest line of play works but it is easy to set up hands with one or both finesses right that would collapse on the no finesse line due to bad breaks in clubs, diamonds or both suits. Our verdictl is that North and South were more unlucky than unskillful. (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.) The bidding has been: West North East South 1* Pass 2* Pass ?

Secret of a Good Yield i Is in Nature's Seed By Sheila and Allan Swenson Pick the best seed and mother nature will reward you with tastier meals. Horticulturists have developed amazing new varieties that feature disease and insect resistance, drought hardiness and higher yields than were possible 10 years ago. Big Boy tomato remains the best selling vegetable seed, but Big Early, Burpees VF tomato have added dis- ea se-r esist ant qualities. Pixie is a hybrid designed for pot, window box or flower border . . . wherever space is scarce. Grow tall with Kentucky Wonder pole beans; bushels of beans that grow on vines climbing six feet high. Bush beans require no staking, so Tenderpod or Bush Romano are good bets. Everyone loves sweet corn, the sweeter the better. Illini Extra Sweet combines both earliness and top flavor. Silver Sweet is a new white corn, both early and tasty. Burpee's Honeycross, Gold- en Bantam and Golden Cross Bantam do well in home gardens. A few cucumber plants supply summer salad abundantly. We recommend trying M and M Hybrid Burp- less and Spartan Valor Hybrid, an All-America selection that is resistant to mosaic and scab disease. In lettuce, try several varieties, Oak Leaf, Greenhart and Iceberg that stands hot weather. Hybrid zucchini squash yields well. Three plants supply a family all summer. The more you pick, the more they produce. As a bush, it takes less space. If you like melons, try Early Hybrid Crenshaw, the only crenshaw that thrives in northern gardens. Ice Box midget watermelon produces 10 pound fruits 30 days earlier than other varieties and has fewer seeds. A real space saVer. And in the exotic line, try some delights from the Orient, celtuce, tampala and Malabar spinach.

Groom] 9 s Mother Out for Trouble By Abigail Van Buren IO mi kr CfelttM Trlbww-N. Y. Ntwt inrf., Inc.] DEAR ABBY: My daughter Is 18. She is marrying the boy she went steady with all thru high school. He is 19. We are managing the wedding but must limit the number of guests to 125 because my husband has been out of work and we are not in very good shape financially. I told the groom's mother that she could invite 63 people and we were inviting 62. She said that wasn't nearly enough for her as she is presently separated from her husband and she wants to invite her boyfriend and his family, which is very large. I told her in a nice way that she could invite whomever she wanted but not more than 63 people as we had to hold down the expense. Guess what she said? "Either I have as many people as I want or I'll refuse to sign for my son!" Abby, he is only 19 and he can't get married unless she signs for him. So what do I do now? SAD MOM . DEAR MOM: Don't let her blackmail yon. In some states the signature of only one parent [or guardian] is sufficient. Look tnto it. Also tell the lady [?] that If she wants to pay for her own guests she may have as many as she wants. DEAR ABBY: A few weeks ago my husband died, and right after the funeral my children insisted that I go visit my sister in another town to get away for a while. Today I came home to an immaculate, but very empty house. I have two wonderful daughters and I love them dearly, but sometimes I wish they wouldn't be so helpful. They came in and cleaned my house from top to bottom. Every closet, every cupboard, every shelf had been scrubbed. My house shines from one end to another. But what bothers me most is that they disposed of all their father's belongings! There is not a trace of him in this house. It's as tho he never lived here. There are no socks to darn, no buttons to sew. My sons in law even divided up his tools. I suppose they did this so I wouldn't feel so bad sorting thru his things and doing it myself. I could say something, but the deed is done, however well-meaning it was. But now I have nothing to do except dust and wash my own few dishes. Thanks for listening, Abby. I feel a little better now. — LOST AND LONELY DEAR LOST: I understand your feeling of uselessness, but I assure yon your daughters meant well. They spared you what is usually the most painfully heart-breaking task a widow must face. DEAR ABBY: On my next birthday, I will have to register for the draft. I am opposed to the war in Viet Nam and I want no part of it. If necessary, I will go to prison. I can't honestly say mjy "religious convictions" are responsible for my feelings, which I understand one would have to swear to under oath in order to become a conscientious objector. In order to become a conscientious objector, what steps must I take? I do not want to be in violation of the law by refusing to register. But I know positively that my conscience will not allow me to take part in this war. Can you help me? J-QR PEACE DEAR FOR: After yon register, request a special form for conscientious objectors from your draft board. Yon will have 30 days in which to gather character references from your neighbors, teachers, your clergyman and anyone who will vouch for your sincerity in this connection. Your draft board will then review your case and decide whether or not you qualify as a conscientious objector. [There are standards set down by the national Selective Service and the Supreme £*mrt] If you are classified i-A, in spite of your objections, you can request a personal appearance and appeal it.
