The game is match point duplicate and it is an important tournament. You win the diamond lead with dummy's ace and see that you have several lines of play to take all 13 tricks. You also note that many players will have settled for game; some will be in six no-trump with no real play to make it; a few in seven spades. You also are happy to note that West did not open a trump. This leaves you a fairly straight line to seven. You cash your ace of clubs; enter dummy with the king of hearts; discard your losing diamond on the king of clubs and are ready for new worlds to conquer. You do exactly that and you will have seen that West played the jack of hearts. Your play for seven at this point is to lead a heart to your ace. Assuming, as is Law for today Q. My husband has adopted my two children by a previous marriage. Now, my ex-husband — the children's father — says the adoption, to which he consented, cancelled the payments which he had owed for child support. Is this true? A. No. Although support payments terminated with the effective date of the adoption, any past-due child support payments still are collectable and will remain so. — Illinois State Bar Assn. quite likely, that West did not hold a singleton heart, you can rise with your ace and claim seven if West follows. In rubber bridge you would see that a low heart play will guarantee your small slam. This is duplicate match point, and if you are a hog you will try for the overtrick; if you are a smart duplicate player, you will see that six spades bid and made is sure to be a good score.

Patching an art that saves money Patching damaged areas of wall and floor coverings is an art that can save many dollars. The alternative to the patch is an entirely new surface. The work of patching is not hard and it is only part of the job. The other, and important part, is getting the right material. With foresight you can do his right from the beginning. Save remnants. Odds and ends of wallpaper and linoleum are always left when the installation is complete. Put away some good pieces. If you are using the popular square asphalt or vinyl tile, put the extras away. If it is a discontinued pattern it is worth-while to buy a few extra. If you are really farsighted you will take a piece of the new wallpaper and hang it out of the way in a closet. The paper will weather along with the covering on the walls. If you have to make a patch you will find that the new material has faded to the same extent as the old. Use a sharp knife or a razor blade to cut away the damaged area of the old wall paper. Cut your patch slightly larger than the damaged area. This will allow you to move it around until you have matched the pattern on the wall. Then apply paste and smooth it out. If you have a sure hand you may be able to cut the patch so that the edges of the new meet the edges of the old exactly. For most of us it is best to allow the new material to overlap at the edges. Linoleum and other floor coverings must have a patch that fits perfectly. Overlap- ping edges cause ridges that can be felt beneath the foot and which gather dirt. Space between the edges fill with dirt. Cut a pattern out of cardboard. Make the edges straight and make the patch a shape easy to duplicate, a rectangle or a square. Make it large enough to cover the area you are patching. Use the pattern when you cut away the old material and when you cut a patch from new material. With straight sides and straight corners you shouldn't have trouble duplicating. Use a linoleum knife and score the old material several times to make sure you have cut all the way through. This will prevent the surrounding material from being damaged when you pull up the old piece. ' Clean out the opening. Dirt and remnants of old linoleum must all be removed. If there was a felt underlay, leave the old one in or replace it if it came up with the linoleum. Check the patch for size. It should fit without buckling. Spread linoleum paste and press the patch into place.. Wipe away the paste that oozes up. Put a weight on the patch to make it flush or roll with an old rolling pin. When the patch is a couple of weeks . old and as hard .as the rest of it, rub it with steelwool to remove that new shine. If you cannot match the material, use a contrasting color and cut it in a special shape— diamond or triangle, for example — as though it had been planned that way. In front of a sink, a long rectangle will look like a runner. Your car Check under hood every 60 days "Wecouldn't have built any other way but the Capp Homes way."

(AP) -Top executives might improve the way they run major corporations by studying tne inner workings of the Mafia, a management expert says. A. J. Tasca, manager of corporate manpower development for Control Da'a Corp. of Minneapolis, Minn., said Thursday that one leason the Mafia has survived for seven centuries is its unique organization. While large Amprican corporations such as IBM aM Control Data have put in up to 10 levels of management as they've grown, Tasca said, the Mafia has stuck with only three or four levels. He explained that by the time a decision filters through 10 management levels, "the information is so massaged that you question it." Tasca, 34, who was born in Sicily and has studied the Mafia all his life, spoke at a one-day conference here sponsored by the Center for Organization and Manpower Development, part of the School of Business at California State University, San Jose. "American corporations tend to become happy with themselves as they get bigger Q — My battery, which is only about six months old, does not hold much of a charge even though the car is driven a steady 45 miles each day. Could the battery itself be to blame? — M.B. A — A quick test can answer that. Other possibilities are a low generator charge, a faulty regulator or a badly slipping fan belt. Q — Despite a check of the carburetor and automatic choke, my exhaust belches black smoke when I start, and gas mileage has fallen off. — A. B. A — Quite often a problem like this is finally traced to a dirty air cleaner. ... and sometimes end up pushing products that were out of style five years ago," he said. To the contrary, the Mafia "has a minimum of bureaucracy and a fast reaction to changing conditions ... They appear always to be growing and changing." In private business, Tasca said, there is "a lot :>( nepotism and favortism." and a lot of interaction between top executives a!7.J employes. He said this often leads to decisions being made on the basis of emotion and not performance. But in the Mafia, the bo-.s does not fraternize with his , employes—just with other bosses— and his decisiosn arc much more business! ikt, Tasca said. A boss can get an initial job- for a membor of his family, Tasca said, "but he has to perform or the organization will do away with him," he said this also applies to the Mafia heirar- chy. "We come closer to the corporate excellence model in the Mafia in terms of no waste and no duplication of effort,' 1 Tasca said. "Bureaucracy creates disorganization and they avoid it."

Otto Kerner on charges stemming from race-track stock holdings be sequestered during the trial. U.S. Atty. James R. Thompson filed the request Friday during pretriaJ . proceedings in the Kerner case being conducted before Judge Robert L. Taylor. Earlier in the week, Kerner's attorneys, Edward B. Williams and Paul Connolly, asserted the government has leaked information about the case to the press in violation of Judge Taylor's order against it. Williams and Connolly asked for -a U.S. District Court hearing to determine the source of unauthorized information leaks. Thompson argued that "by sequestering the jury in a highly competitive news town such as Chicago, the possibility of a mistrial due to publicity would be avoided and there would be no need to admonish or interfere with the press." Judge Taylor withheld ruling. Kerner, on leave from a seat on the 7th U.S. Cou-t of Appeals, and four other former state officials are awaiting trial on various charges growing out of dealing in race-track stock in 1966 and 1967. The trial is scheduled to begin Nov. 15. William R. Carr, 53, of 3622 Horn St., Alton, was pronounced dead on arrival at 5 a.m. , today at Alton Memorial Hospital.
