A: Miss Holm, the former Olympic swimming champ, tells us she received a substantial sum for letting 21-year-old aquatic star Heidi O'Rourke portray her in "Funny Lady."

Northridge, California 91.'(24. Q: I am a member of a nonprofit organization that raises money through projects for charity causes. We are thinking about holding a raffle for a color television set by selling tickets to persons, giving them chances to win a TV. Someone said we should check with the Better Business Bureau first. A: Lubbock has a solicitation ordinance which requires a license from the city secretary for fund-raising projects where the public is asked either to donate, buy, or assist. Application forms are provided bythe ; city secretary's office. The BBB reviews the application'and makes recommendations on issuance or non-issuance of the license. The statement about the raffle brings up a very important question. Is what you are planning a lottery? In Texas all types of lotteries are illegal, according to the attorney general. A lottery consists of three essential ingredients: Consideration, prize and chance. Ail three elements must be present to constitute a lottery. The bureau suggests that before any organization sells tickets for a raffle they consult an attorney as to whether it may be a lottery and therefore illegal under tlie laws of Texas. Q: 1 am wanting to purchase a tape recorder-player. Do you have any suggestions as to what I might look for in this particular item? A; Tape recorders and players are a new-found source of entertainment, but before you buy. know which kind will fit your desires: open-reel, cassette, or cartridge type. First decide how you want to use the instrument, then try out the various types. Understand how they work and what they'll do. Listen to the quality and above all, buy from a reputable dealer The Lubbock BBB has a pamphlet called "Tips on Tape Recorders and Players" thai is available free of charge. Just call the BBB office ;u 763-0459 for your copy. Q: My wife ao«jl are newly retired and are going on vacation for several weeks. Do you have any tips for us since we are going to be away for quite a while? A: In spite of reminders and suggestions, many people will do a terrific job of advertising to burglars that they're away • on vacation. The advertisements include: a porch cluttered with newspapers, a bulging mail box, a garage with the door open, a house with no lights night after night. The Lubbock BBB suggests that it is well worth the few minutes it takes to cancel all deliveries and discontinue newspapers, Also, have the post office hold all your mail, and ask your neighbor to check your house regularly. Q: I have a large family, and I think a microwave oven really would save me time in preparing meals. Do you have any advice for me? A: If you are thinking of buying a microwave oven, be sure to examine various brands and models and compare prices before you buy. Be sure to check the guarantee. Ask the salesperson about the cost of replacing the megatron the vacuum tube that generates microwaves. Find out whether technicians are available for repair service. If the oven you are buying is portable but heavy, ask whether you mjisi bring it to the repair center Or. whether the repair work can be done in your home. If you have questions for "People Ask," write to the I.ubbocJc Better Business Bureau. P.O. Box 1178, 79408. SPECIAL CLASSES BERKELEY. Calif.
