An expert, thd late Dr. Morgan said that "at. least 90 per cert of all the people who lose weight on a diet gain more back than they have lost."

GSA official Louis Brooks said She agency will set up a task force to settle on arrangements for the sale and seek $2 million to $3 million from Congress to pay for processing the anticipated flood of orders. There will be a listing of the 10 years represented in the Carson City group—from 1878 to 1885 inclusive, plus 1890 and 1891—and a designated price for each. Buyers would be permitted to have just one coin from each year—with no one getting more than 10 coins. If there are more rwnicsls for a specific year than there are coins to go around, the dollars will go to the highest bidder. "Those are !)0 per cent silver and very valuable. The base prices will bo set in advance by the government and will bc;;r some reasonable relation to market values—but there will be a device under which people who order could, in effect, bid higher price." The measure'also authorizes a new dollar coin bearing a likeness of the late President Dwight I). Eisenhower on one side—with the other side having a design emblematic of the symbolic eagle of Apollo 11 landing on the moon. Ther would be 15(1 million dollars of 40 per cent silver- to be sold at a premium—with general circulation versions made of composition metal like the present quarter arid dime. No silver dollars have been minted since 19I15. Circulation was stopped in 196-1 because the remaining ones were worth much more than $1 as collectors items.
