'Monkey business' riot deductible By Abigail Van Buren !• m»* MM* Tit**** V. "•»! !»*., »M '•• DEAR ABBY: A W«nd and 1 have been sharing a mte- tress for the last year. It's been a good arrangement for •11 of us as I am there [another city] Monday morning thru Wednesday noon, and my friend is there from Wednesday •oon thru Friday. [Then she has the weekend off.] We pay all the expenses and give her spending money. The cost is about $400 a month from each of us. We are both salesmen and we save on hotel and meals. The problem: She wants to report this for income tax. It comes to $1,518 per year, and we will have to give her extra aoney to pay it. We are both on salary and pay the full rate and can't deduct her or any of our expenses as they ftn paid in cash and we have no receipts. Besides, our wives would find out. What do you advise? HONEST TAXPAYER DEAR HONEST: Since y«i travel for bMineu, you'd be •head to »Uy ID hotels and eat out. Barineis expenses are deductible. Bat NOT monkey batten. DEAR ABBY: A mailman offered the following information in your column: "If someone receives something thru the mails which he did not order and does not want, all he has to do is write, 'Refused. Return to Sender' on it and drop tt in the mail. If he has opened it, he should simply tape it shut, and return it in the aforementioned manner." This is only partially correct. Anything sent thru the mail which has been opened by the addressee, cannot be re- .entered into the mail without being properly re-addressed and new postage affixed. Please correct that mailman's original statement. He should have known better. INFORMED IN PHOENIX DEAR INFORMED: I should have, too. But it's been a long time since I've played "port office." DEAR ABBY: I have a problem which I have been unable to solve, and I'm hoping you can help me. The September before last I loaned one of my precious books to a member of our social group. Three members of our group had read it and returned it, but this person refuses to return it to me altho I have asked her no less than a dozen times. The last time I asked her for it, she said, "Oh, do I still have that book? I'll have to look around and see if I can find it." That was six months ago and I haven't heard a word about it since. What can I do, Abby? I realty want that book! BURNING IN AUBURN, ILL. DEAR BURNING: It's a pretty good bet that your friend [a] misplaced It; [b] let someone else read it, and she can't remember who; [c] Just flaln lost it. You could call on her and offer to wait until she locate* the book. And If that fafe. yon will have learned a valuable lesson. Precious books are not for lending. CONFIDENTIAL to "The Lovely Young Couple Who Recently Moved Into an Apartment in Erwin, Tennessee": Your neighbors inform me that your bed squeak*! Problems?

PAMPA DAILY NEWS 3 PAMPA TEXAS 66th YEAR Monday, Juno 19, 1972 Retirement Tea Fetes Miss Edna Daughetee »*__ tik^.A m*m**mtA**A a 4 I ha C!>kk**sil fttwin/f intv 01 Miss Edna Daughetee was honored with a retirement tea Tuesday in the home of Mrs. Al Smith, 1208 Christine. Assisting Mrs. Smith as hostess were Mmes. W.C. Epperson, L.E. Harris, Bob Haines, Carl Jones and Elmer Darnell. In the receiving line were Mrs. Smith, Miss Daughetee and Mrs. Joe Carlton, sister of the honoree. Guests were registered by Misses Doris, Martha and Molly Carlton, nieces of Miss Daughetee. The honoree was presented an orchid corsage, a gift from her sisters and brother, Mrs. Carlton, of Pampa, Mrs. W.W. McCrum of Long Beach, Calif., and Wiley Daughetee of Los Angeles, Calif. The serving table, covered with an imported ecru cutwork cloth, was centered with an arrangement of pink and rose mixed flowers. Refreshments of decorated cake squares, mints, nuts, punch and coffee were served. Mrs. Jones presided at the crystal punch bowl, and Mrs. Darnell presided at the silver coffee service. Miss Daughetee was graduated from Miami High School in 1924. An unusual feature of the retirement tea was that three members of her graduating class were present, Mrs. H.H. Keahey, Mrs. Homer Powell and Miss Eddie Mae Scott. In 1925, she attended West Texas State, where she received her teaching certificate. Her first teaching assignment was at Tony Ridge School in Carson County, where she taught with Miss Esther Dellis, now Mrs, Guy Blanton of Amarillo, who attended the tea, also. Through the years, she taught at Keplinger School in Gray County, Cuyler School in Carson County, and, from 1930 until 1942, she taught first grade in Hereford. She completed, this year, 30 years of teaching first grade at Baker Elementary School, spending 21 of those years in the same room. Teaching during the winter and attending summer school, she was awarded a bachelor of science degree in elementary education from West Texas State Teachers' College in 1937. Miss Daughetee, who resided at 1313 Duncan, plans to substitute teach, travel and to devote more time to work at the Harvester-Mary Ellen Church of Christ, where she presently teaches a third-grade Sunday School class. Approximately 60 persons attended the retirement tea. Bikini Bulge If you try on last year's bathing suit and discover that your suffering from bikini bulge, there's only a few things you can do.

Poor Yorick, sitting West, thought of trying a five-club call but decided against it. Luck had never run well for him. . , The fair Ophelia studied her cards for awhile. "To slam or not to slam" was her problem. She bid six. The six-spade call shut off Horatio and poor Yorick opened the king of clubs. Ophelia put down the (lummy and Hamlet, gallant for once, said, "Thank you, my darling." He started to reach for •dummy's ace and then paused for a mute soliloquy. Was there any hurry about taking that ace of clubs? Was there any harm in taking it? The answer to the first question was only if Yorick could Send JI lor JACOBY MODERN book to: "Win ot Bridge," (c/o (hit newspaper), P.O. Bo* 4i9, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019. shift to a suit his partner could ruff. The answer to the second was only if Yorick held eight clubs. Hamlet decided there was something rotten about the club suit and he let Yorick hold the first trick. It was just as well. East could have ruffed the ace and left Hamlet one trick short of his slam.

Maturing changes you, lead you out of some relationships, past the need for some possessions. Today's natives are more determined than most Geminians, good at following examples, improving on another's style. Aries [March 21-April 19j: The news is told again and again and again. Your patience wears thin. Pick up the pieces for somebody in need, offer reassurance. Taurus [April 20-May 20]: Take responsibility for what you do, following no advice against your subconscious perception. There can be no excuse for passing the buck. Gemini [May 21-June 20]: If you have it in writing, use it. If not, do what you can, avoid new obligations. Spend time with loved ones, listen for messages beyond spoken words. Cancer [June 21-July 221: Afternoon plans are subject to displacement, be ready for changes. Be calm while people reconsider—opinions may be unfavorable. Leo [July 23-Aug. 22]: Now is the time to hold your own, rather than go adventuring. Well-meaning people may be persuasive in urging fresh spending. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22]: The sensible thing under today's stress is the minimum that will suffice. Creature comforts are emphasized. Let inhibitions go.

Divert yourself with social pursuits, letting career concerns run idle. Scorpio [Oct. 23-Nov. 211: Be sure of your strength and your weak spots. Make necessary decisions, then stick with them. Precision is essential. Sagittarius fNov. 22-Dec. 211: Triumph in argument for the moment may be defeat in losing a friend or a future opportunity. Think, forgive, rather than clash needlessly. Capricorn [Dec. 22-Jan. 19]: Talk displaces action again today, and it may be just as well. People are not always consistent, must have time to come to terms with problems. Aquarius [Jan. 20-Feb. 18]: Much of the interference you encounter is of your own making. You may have invited competitors into action by showing off. Pisces [Feb. 19-March 20]: Being willing to go halfway with those you care about is half the achievement now. Home life takes more time than usual.
