Y. Ntwi Syiri., Inc. DEAR ABBY: I shall never forget hearing you speak before the Independent Life Insurance Company's convention in New Orleans. When you read that beautiful tribute to your husband, which you published in your column on your 25th wedding anniversary, we ladies and gentlemen in your audience counted our blessings as you counted yours. After your talk, I asked you how I could get a copy of that tribute, and you told me to write to you and you'd send it to me. Instead of doing that, I'm asking you to please print it in your column again, so all your readers can read it, and have a copy, too. We loved you! JEANNE GREGORY, JACKSONVILLE, FLA. DEAR JEANNE: Flattery will get you everywhere. Here it is: "Today is a very special day for me. It's my 25tii wedding anniversary, and I have this to say: I had a mother and father who really loved each other, so I know what love is. I have worked hard to see two teen-agers safely thru their traumatic teens, so I know what satisfaction is. I have prayed. And my prayers have been answered, so I know what faith is. I have had by my side, the kindest, gentlest, most considerate human being I've ever known, so I know what happiness is. And because I've known all these things. ... I know what wealth is." MRS. MORTON PHILLIPS DEAR ABBY: My mother in law, who is a widow, has two children, my husband and his sister. Mom travels a lot, and she always brings home souvenirs for my sister in law and me. Here's the problem: Mom always gives my sister in law and me identical gifts, and consequently my home is full of the same objects as my sister in law's. Mom is going on another trip soon, and I know she'll be shopping for gifts for us, and I hate the thought of getting another one of those "twin gifts." Should I drop a hint before Mom leaves and hope she catches on? Or should I be quiet, and pretend I'm pleased when she gives me and my sister in law identical gifts again? NAMELESS, PLEASE DEAR NAMELESS: The poor mother in law just can't win. In order to show no favoritism between her daughter and her daughter in law she buys you identical gifts, and what does she get? Complaints! Don't "hint" for something "different," because no matter what you get, you 'll probably think your sister in law's is better. DEAR ABBY: My 16-year-old son got his 15-year-old girl friend pregnant. My son and the girl's parents want me. to give my consent for these two kids to marry. I just can't do it because I would feel like I was ruining three lives. The kids are nowhere near mature enough for marriage, neither are they financially able to care for themselves, let alone a baby. Do you know of anyone I can get to talk to the girl's parents? Abortion or adoption would be much better for everybody. Please help me. CAN'T SLEEP NIGHTS DEAR CAN'T: Perhaps your clergyman can talk to the girl's parents. Your local Planned Parenthood also offers free counseluig service. They will NOT try to persuade anyone who does not want an abortion to have one. They simply counsel, and will guide them in adoption procedures if that is their choice. Good luck. Problems? You'll feel better if you get it oft your chest. For a personal reply, write to ABBY: Box No. 69700, L. A., Calif. 9006*. Enclose stamped, self-addressed envelope, please. WIN AT BRIDGE Disagree (sound familiar?)

"Why did you give me that silly raise?" asked South. "Three no-trump was a cinch, I admit I could have made four hearts, but it looked to me as if hearts were going to break 42." "What difference did that make?" yelled North. "You played the hand well until you went nuts!" North was right, South started out by assuming that West held the ace of spades at the head of a suit that was less than six cards long, lie won the diamond lead with his ace; led a second diamond to dummy's king and a third diamond to be won by East. East led the fourth round of thesuit. West ruffed with the six and dummy overruffed with the king. A heart lead to his ace dropped the nine from West. South led a spade. West took his ace and led back the queen to dummy's king. The last trump was led from dummy and after East followed'South went through a process of what might be called thought and finally finessed his eight. West collected a surprise trick with the 10 and the setting trick with the jack of spades. That trump finesse had been entirely unnecessary. A high trump play was a sure winner. Actually, it would have dropped the 10; if it hadn't, three rounds of clubs would have allowed South to score the eight irrespective of what East did.
