We hope. you'll print it. Here are 20 questions. Any woman who answers "Yes" to more than half is probably alcoholic. 1.

Do you hide the empties and dispose of them secretly? 4. Do you plan in advance to "reward" yourself with a little drinking bout after you've worked very hard in the house? 5. Are you often permissive with your children because you feel guilty about the way you behaved when you were drinking? 6. Do you have "blackouts," periods about which you remember nothing? 7. Do you ever phone the hostess of a party the next day and ask if you hurt anyone's feelings or made a fool of yourself? 8. Do you find cigaret holes in your clothes-or the furniture and can't remember when it happened? 9. Do you take an extra drink or two before leaving for a party when you know liquor will be served there? 10. Do you often wonder if anyone knows how much you drink? 11. Do you feel wittier or more charming when you are drinking? 12. Do you feel panicky when faced with non-drinking . days, such as a visit to out-of-town relatives? 13.

Over an inch of rain was reported in one six-hour period at Niagara Falls, N.Y. Around three-quarters of an inch was reported at Chadron, Neb., and Tucson^ Ariz. 1 Temperatures around the country ranged from 91 degrees early at Needles, Calif., to 52 at Quillayute, Wash. California weather summary: The weather and the temperatures will see little change over most of the %tate the next few days though the chance of showers will spread to cover most of Southern California. The main weather stories in California Thursday were thundershowers in the extreme north and southern deserts and hot daytime temperatures elsewhere: A weak dissipating weather front near the Oregon border brought a few thundershowers over the northern mountains. Moisture from Mexico was the reason for the desert showers which even brought sprinkles to Palm Springs. Extended weather outlook for Central and Northern California Sunday through Tuesday: Mostly fair with some cloudiness near the Oregon line. Fog and low clouds along coast, clearing during afternoons. Slightly warmer inland with highs in the 90s inland and in the 60s and 70s along coast.

(Alcoholic Counselors) Dear D. and J.: Thank you. And now a word from me to those of you who flunked. These self-help groups have proven more successful than psychiatry, religion or medical help. Millions have found sobriety through their camaraderie and mutual support. You can, too. Get going.

They have seven varieties of geese, Australian Black swans and Crested Khaki Campbell ducks. Other breeds of birds housed on the ranch include doves, six varieties of pigeons, love birds, parakeets, canaries, two varieties of quail, five varieties of ^pheasant, three varieties of peacock; Crested White Polish and White Crested Black Polish game birds; .Silver Spangled Hamburg chickens that lay two eggs a day,Buff Orphingtons that weigh as much as, 25 pounds, and Araucanas that lay colored eggs.

James, John sermon topic The strange* career of Jesus' disciples, James and John will be considered by First Christian Church this Sunday at their 10 a.m. service of Morning Worship. The Scripture lesson for the day tells of the request by James and John that a Samaritan city be destroyed for its impoliteness to Jesus. Trying to express the meaning of such events, Pastor Bob Lewis will speak on the topic, "In your spiritual life, be like a good typist — copy" only from, the original, the master', and hot from other copies." Joint action service group forms here The Joint Action Service Projects is a new.organization in the Ukiah valley.' It is an informal organization of Ukiah Rotary, South Ukiah Rotary, Kiwanis, Ukiah Lions, Redwood Empire Lions, Lake Mendocino Lions, Soroptimists, Business and Professional Women, Jaycees, Greater Ukiah Chamber of Commerce and Mendocino County Chamber of Commerce. Each club or organization has appointed a member and alternate to be a representative on the board of directors. The purposes of the organization are: develop a greater spirit of friendship and cooperation between members of participating groups; join together to provide public service to the citizens of the Ukiah valley area, specifically those projects which, are too' large for any one organization to provide. The goals are: to promote the advantages of living in the Ukiah valley area, encouraging visitation by tourists to this area; encourage the locating of conventions here. The initial project the group is pursuing is the long range development of a community convention center to consist of auditorium, meeting rooms, and dining facilities. The Joint Action Service Project members plan to work with the county of Mendocino, city of Ukiah, Bicentennial Committee in providing manpower to gather public support for the program. The group's membership will be holding a dinner meeting,in October to hear a discussion by L.A. Critzer, general manager of the Hayward Park and Recreation District, on the ways and means of establishing a program to provide a community center. Friday, July 19, 1974 Ukiah Dally Journal, Ukiah Calif.—5 Cutting horse contest will be a part of Fair The fabulous fair time in the Redwood Empire promises to be one of the most fascinating ever. The Redwood Empire. Cutting Horse Association has just announced that an approved contest, open to the world will be held as part of the. 1974 Fair entertainment program. World famous cutting horses from as far away as Texas, Arizona, Oregon and Washington are expected to compete Aug. 10-11 in the Al Parker arena. Classes of open cutting, nonprofessional, novice nonprofessional $250 added novice cutting and youth under 18 years of age are expected to draw all of the nations top cutting horses. An outstanding rancher, Marvin Knowles of Oakdale, well known cutting horse rider and judge has been selected to judge the two-day event. What is a cutting horse? Well, the cutting horse is a stock horse with a high economic value; he can earn his keep at home and then go to a contest and put on a splendid and entertaining performance to the spectator by presenting a colorful picture of ranch work at its best. Performance regardless of color, sex or breed, is the sole guide to his value; that is, the ability to enter a herd of cattle, cut an animal out of the herd for shipment to market, doctoring or moving to another pasture; and prevent this animal from returning to the herd. Cow sense in its highest degree is shown,as this horse anticipates every movement of the animal and does his own thinking and acting with little help from the rider. A cutting horse is particulrly judged on his natural ability as he works with a loose rein and maintains the proper balance to-be able to move any direction quickly. Quite often a cutting horse has to block an animal. that has made up his mind to return to the herd. When this, happens these horses do an incredible job at close quarters. Plenty of ranch experience is the background for the development of the good judgement necessary for the cutting horse to out-maneuver the animal being cut out without disturbing the herd. As the cutting horse stops and turns to counter every move made by the animal being cut out, he well rewards his rider's confidence by seldom making a mistake. The cutting horse well deserves the high popularity and favor he has found with the general public. Rodeos and horse shows all over the United States and Canada are including cutting horse contests in their programs. FIRE TRAINING Firefighters from the California Division of Forestry and a crew from the U.S. Corps of Engineers were trained in the use of fire tools, fire line construction and fire behavior recently during a special fire training session at Lake Mendocino. The session was given to help prepare crews for the' rash of fires which occur each summer around the lake. Approximately 30 persons attended the session, conducted by Jim Taglio, state forest ranger in the Ukiah district. , CARD OF THANKS May I please use these few printed words to say "tnank-you" to my dear friends? The many beautiful flowers, messages and ex- peressions of neighborliness- all helped brighten the hours I recently spent at Presbyterian Medical Center. Lenona Morten son DOLPHIN - - - STOCK SALE!
