«t » I.- eo/i-Afefeo- A plan to take the 'X' out of movies By Abigail Van Bur«n {• \m kr CMoet TMtaw-N. Y. H*n DM* tat] DEAR ABBY: Everybody keeps talking about how dirty the movies are nowadays, but nobody does anything about H I think that every time we see an "X" or "R" rated movie advertised, we should write to the president of the studio that made that movie and tell him that this is one movie our family will not be seeing. And when they start making clean movies, we will be glad to see them. If you printed this letter, Abby, and people all across the country started writing letters, do you think it might help to get all this raw sex out of the movies? DISGUSTED DEAR DISGUSTED: It might. But how do we get the "raw sex" out of the balconies and drive-ins? DEAR ABBY: We are grandparents in our sixties. We have two married children who live in a city not too far from us. We never go there uninvited, so it cannot be said that we make pests of ourselves. We have heard that they have come to our city to shop, or visit, but they haven't even bothered to call us. We have the usual family get-togethers at our home for Christmas and Easter, but they never stay very long, and we are made to feel that they regard it more a duty than a pleasure to be with us, We send them and our grandchildren gifts, which are seldom acknowledged. What has happened to the manners and Christian love we taught them? We denied ourselves many things so they could both have good educations to prepare them for the fine professions they now practice so successfully. On those few occasions when we go to their homes they do not even have the courtesy to see us to the door when we i leave. Please, Abby, tell us where we have failed? UNAPPRECIATED AND NEGLECTED DEAR U AND N: Don't assume that YOU have failed. THEY have (ailed. Occupy yourself with other things and don't dwell on their lack of appreciation and neglect. If the calamity doesn't overcome you, feeling sorry for yourselves will. DEAR ABBY: While at the grocery store this morning, a woman struck up a conversation with me about my baby girl, who was in the infant seat of my shopping cart. The lady asked me how old she was and when I said, "Two and a half months," she acted horrified and then she went into this long-winded speech about how fat she was, and asked if my doctor had put her on a diet yet because her grandson had the same "problem!" Abby, my b a b y got a very healthy s t a r t in life [11 pounds, three ounces at birth], and she weighs 14 pounds now and doesn't look like a slob. On the contrary, my doctor is very pleased with her progress. I admit that my baby does look older than she is, because she's larger than most babies her age; but I don't appreciate hearing that I should "do something" about her "infant obesity." This isn't the first time this has happened. If it happens again, what should I say to shut them up? PROUD MOMMY DEAR PROUD: Say, "Thank you, but my doctor tells me my child is just fine." Then head for the fr«ieB food section. CONFIDENTIAL TO YOU: The person who says he ii»'t "interested" in politics is like the drowning man who says he isn't Interested in water. NOW is the time to make sure you are registered so you can vote. And if you aren't happy with the way t h 1 n g s are going In t h 1 s country, u4 you haven't voted, don't complain. Tnwt Abby.

Your Horoscope By Jean* Dixon WEDNESDAY, JUNE 14 YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY: This is the year in which you should further your education, both formal and incidental. Tensions come to the surface so that you have a good chance to see and do something about them. Today's natives are somewhat more reserved than most Geminians, with an abiding faith in their ability to find answers. Aries [March 21-April 19]: Improvise fresh ways of expressing yourself. Older people will be difficult, temperamental; younger more helpful than usual. Romance beckons unexpectedly. Taurus [April 20-May 20]: Your thoughts dwell on home and family now, particularly on what may be beyond your ready reach. Future plans have a day-dream quality. Gemini [May 21-June 20]: Travel if you can, even a short trip is useful. Correspondence, brief routines are accessible for closure or clearance. Start early. Cancer [June 21-July 22]: Where you feel that you have earned something, stake your claim. Good news regarding health questions, your own and those of people you love. Leo [July 23-Aug. 22]: You have confidence and energy, change is possible to be taken in stride. Accent guidance from others who have been through the same experience. Virgo [Aug. 23-Sept. 221: Assign priorities, make truthful explanations rather than false excuses. Don't talk about what you plan until the time comes, then go ahead. Libra [Sept. 23-Oct. 22]: It's a great day for resolving riddles, getting yourself out of a difficult position, but you must resolve not to involve yourself again. Scorpio [Oct. 23-Nov. 21]: Try an original or experimental approach. Some of your finest resources have been overlooked because of superficial appearan:es. Older people show the way. Sagittarius [Nov. 22-Dec. 21 J: Healthy self-interest requires you to take stock of what you have and what you're doing with it, and who is benefiting most. Capricorn [Dec. 22-J a n . 19]: Gathering people of like interests may be strenuous, but does offer resources for a larger project then you can handle alone. Aquarius [Jan. 20-Feb. 181: You can hit the high spots of routine work and go on, but don't fake anything. You must cover it later. Social activities you can arouse participation. Pisces [Feb. 19-March 20J: Even though most of what you do now is well-worn habit, give yourself a good, honest examination; try seeing your behavior for what it is. (• IWli •)) TM CkiMle TrlMMl Driving Tips For Seniors One of the last items for a senior citizen to give up in the struggle for independence is the family automobile. Several traffic safety reminders must be made. First, how can you avoid dangerous start-stop errors at traffic lights? Stopping at a traffic light might seem to be one of the simpler situations one encounters in driving. But there are potentially dangerous elements involved. "While awaiting a light change, leave the wheels straight until you are able to make a safe turn," said family life education specialist Dorothy Taylor. Turning the wheels while at a light is dangerous since a bump from behind could push you into the oncoming traffic lane. "Another start-stop error occurs when the driver must back up to clear a crosswalk for pedestrians." said Miss Taylor, who works for the Texas Agricultural Extension Service at Texas A&M University. "All too often the driver forgets his car is in the reverse gear. When the light changes to green and he steps on the gas. surprise and danger can be the result." Fatigue is likely to be one of the chief problems of older drivers. "If you feel drowsy," Miss Taylor said, "stop and take a coffee break or a short nap. Plan your driving around many short trips rather than one long one. Inviting someone to accompany you and share the driving makes double pleasure. If you are doing all the driving, make a point of changing your position often." When moving in traffic, don't pride yourself on driving at a snail's pace on the road. The specialist said that it's safe to move along above the minimum speed when driving on a freeway. Safety experts consider the too-slow driver a hazard, since other cars don't, pace themselves to the slower speed. Most modern highways have minimum speed limits of 40-45 miles per hour.

It was a long match and coming into the last set of boards the Four Aces held a 2500-point lead. This was before the days of IMPs and the matches were played at total points. Oswald Jacoby who sat South picked up one of the biggest hands he had ever held. He opened with a forcing two-spade bid. West stuck in a non-vulnerable nusiance call of five hearts and Dave Bruce, sitting North, raised to five spades. Needless to say, Jacoby went right to seven. He expected to spread the hand and claim as soon as dummy hit the table, but the wrong dummy came down. By this time you can see Jacoby's problem. He could discard three of dummy's diamonds on the top clubs but there was still a problem about the queen of diamonds.

He won the heart opening; drew four rounds of trumps: cashed the clubs and the ace of diamonds: entered dummy with a fifth trump: led a second diamond and relaxed happily when Kast produced the queen. Jacoby has never said what he would have done if East had played a low diamond. Morris Elis of New York. who played the hand at the other table, has committed himself. He said.
