Television's 'Ghost' Game Headache For Producers NEW YORK (API-Take a simple, pleasant parlor game, like Ghost, put it on television with hundreds of dollars at stake, and ihe result is s major headache for (he show's producers. Contestant! start playing for keeps, not sport. That Is the situation currently confronting producers of the show Top Dollar. The game around which the show is built is old familiar Ghost: the first player choset a letter with which to start word and the other players add one letter at a time until a complete word of five or more letters is spelled out. The object of the game is to have the word end with ajetter supplied by an opponent. In mid-June one Top Dollar contestant was finally defeated after winning more than $15,000 over an 11-week period. It had become obvious that Mrs. Rhode Mon- Some Missing SS Benefits Some separated (but not divorced) wives and widows of retired or deceased social security workers are missing out on monthly benefit*.' Raymond E. Bender, district jocial security manager, reported today. They are losing out on their social security payments because they are overlooking an important 1957 change in the social security law. This change made it possible for some wives and widows of retired or deceased workers to get monthly hene/its even though they are not now, or -were not at the lime of their husbands' death, living with or being supported by them. Now, there are only three r* qiriremwti for * wife, not insured through her own work, to qualify for monthly benefits: (I) where there are no minor or disabled children involved, she must be «2 years of age or older; (2) their marriage must be a legal one (hat has not terminated and '3), her husband must be receiving monthly social jecurity benefits. An aged widow must have been legally married to her insured husband at the time of hfa death to qualify for i monthly survivor benefit. Sixty-two year oM wives and widows whose marriages have not been legally terminated, but who have been living apart from their husbands; should inquire promptly about their rights, because n o benefit payment can begin until an application has been filed, Mr. Rrnrlrr mntilu'!'''). torsi, the big winner, had not only leaVned huge chunks of the dictionary: but was playing Ghost with .skill and a definite system. The'use of Q, X and Z had been banned as starting letters, and upon Mrs. Montorsi's departure from the show, so were M, N : J and H. The producers found that if the first player knew both the contents of Webster's New World Dictionary and the system, it was possible to'"control" the word so it would end with the opponent's letter iff a two-man game. For example, ' 'a skilled Ghost player might start with the letter J. The opponent might add the letter A. The first person would then call for an E. Thus,- with JAE, the first player has eliminated all but one word found in the show's official dictionary: jaeger, a g u l l - l i k e bird. This rule change has not solved Top Dollar's game problem. Mrs. Alice Young who defeated Mrs. Montorsi and later walked-out in the middle of the June 21 show in protest of the change in rules, insists that eliminating M, N, J and H as starting letters merely has passed control over to the person in second position. "Of the 19 letters with which you can start the game," she fold me, "only the letter S is not controllable from the second position when two are playing the game."

Gbldfine (Continued From Page 1) told many lies about Bernard Goldfine and will tell many more, I am sure." Eisenhower stood by his earlier defense of Adams as a man of honesty and integrity and his comment that "I need him" even though Adams may have been i in- p'nident. He sent word to newsmen that that statement made two weeks ago "stood then and stands now." . .' James C. Hagerty, White House press secretary, gave that information 'to newsmen who had interpreted a news conference statement Wednesday as indicating El- senhower may be reconsidering his position. . It was after Wednesday'* House hearing that' Goldfine's lawyer acknowledged Uial the industrialist's gifts to Adams had been deducted as business expenses for income tax purposes. Under the circumstances, such gifts would be deductible only if the giver expected to gel something of value in feturn. Then Goldfine himself put out an explanation through an array of lawyers. "I am not very good at paper work," Goldfine said, so he left it up to his accountanls to handle the more than $2,000 worth of hotel bills the subcommittee says he paid for Adams over a four- year period. If the revenue men decide it is wrong to count these as business coals, he said, then they can seek more taxes which Goldfine will pay. As for a $2,400 oriental rug, Goldfine said he persuaded Adams to let him buy it for Goldfine's own showroom floor and then'lend il to Adams. Adams' testimony was lliat i Goldfine let .him use the rug o.i | the understanding .that it was a I loan. I Revenue service officials said i an item loaned by a business can- ! not'be claimed as tax deductible. I They indicated a review of Gold- [ fine's tax returns is under way. I Harris said .another target o f ; committee questioning would be! $750,000 worth of checks from ' Goldfine firms which remain outstanding and uncashed although some date back as far as 1941.. Harris said the checks might · shed light on the financial status of Goldfine's East Boston Co., a holding firm, which got inlo trouble with the Securities a n - ] Exchange Commission for not filing required reports In 1948-54. Msek, in a separate interview. Joined Reps. John E. Moss ' CD- Calif) and John B. Bennett (R- Mich) in saying GoJdfine appearad to have run afoul of the tax rules In deducting Lhe cost of favors to Adams as business expenses. '.'The only way now Sherman Adams' neck can b« saved," Mack declared, "would be for Goldfine to take the rap for him and plead 1 guilty to income tax evasion by falsely listing gifts as business expenses." Mack added that practically all the wide-ranging allegations made by Fox in three days of sworn testimony are backed up by other information in the hands of the congressional investigators.
