WIN AT BRIDGE Taxpayer makes 'home delivery' to postmaster By Abigail Van Burtn It *T CMCH* . Y. DEAR ABBY: I wanted to call up my postmaster and tell him • thing or two because I knew he ate my pension check, but I couldn't find his telephone number in the book. I called information and that's when I found out he had an unlisted number! That reaHy made me mad, so since I knew where he lived, I drove over to his house and told Ws wife off. Abby, as a taxpayer, I would like to know why a public servant like a postmaster would have an unlisted telephone number? TAXPAYER DEAR TAXPAYER: Probably to protect him from peo- pfe who "kaww" he ate their pension checks. DEAR ABBY: For the mother whose 16-year-old son pretends to be retarded to draw attention, and the father's encouraging reaction: Obviously the boy is a good actor, but he probably is repeating himself, so I suggest the father do the following to inject realism. Begin by using elastic bandages to tie the boy's elbows Just slightly behind his back, so the elbows will remain bent. Next, wrap heavy rubber bands around the boy's fingers so that they may be used only with effort. Next, the father could have the boy lie on the floor where he could then wrap elastic bandages around his crossed knees. Then wrap more elastic bandages around his feet so they will be pointed inward. Next, place a handful of large marbles into the boy's mouth, so he can neither close it nor control his saliva. Finally put a strap around the boy's head, and attach a rubber strip to it so the head is held up only with effort. By this time the father is probably about to explode in anticipation of the boy's next performance. Then the father should instruct the boy to do some simple task, like turn on the TV and adjust the color and then try to sit in his favorite chair. My analogy to simulate what it's like to have cerebral pal"" [which isn't necessarily retardation] breaks down hj.e— for the father is able to undo the boy's temporary condition. I wish to God that I had such power for my young daughter. THE FATHER OF A C. P. IN HOUSTON DEAR ABBY: From the letters in your column, we "cold" wives should form a club. There are a lot of us around. We're easy to recognize. We're either sick a lot [headaches] or dead tired. We drink too much, smoke too much, and eat too much ["I'm going on a diet tomorrow"]. We lose ourselves in novels [dreaming] and watch a lot of late television. We're sharp with our kids and we get foolish in the 40s [wearing too much makeup and not enough clothes.] As for myself, I have most of the symptoms already and I'm not yet 40. I'd give 10 years of my life if my husband would grab me at the kitchen sink, pat me, pinch me or seduce me [before somebody else does]. I'm about ready to boil over! Come on, Abby, print this. Maybe my husband will get the message. ANOTHER COLD FISH IN POMPANO BEACH, FLA. DEAR FISH: If I read you right, it will take more than a menage. It's time you straightened up and swam right.

Hip to Chic Indian jewelry, which was so popular with "hippies," has become the trademark of the most chic crowds. Silver buckles, knotted together with leather make an exciting piece for casual or dress events. By Oswald & James Jacoby The North-South bidding was very scientific. Thfey. certainly found out that no- trump wasn't a sound contract and that the hearts, for slam purposes, were wide open. They also *,ld West what to lead but West's spade holding looked so good to him he opened that suit. This lead gave South an excellent chance to make a slam. All he had to do was finesse the right way for the queen of clubs; discard a heart on dummy's fourth club and claim the overtrick. South had no interest in this. He was a strictly practical bridge player and while a sure 20 points was not to be despised it seemed silly indeed to risk game and rubber in an effort to collect that little extra nubbin. Tribespeople Don't Worry About Dentist ANGORAM, New Guinea (AP) — Constant flooding of tribal land by the Sepik River probably is responsible for the extraordinary lack of dental decay among tribes- people here, says a World Health Organization expert. Dr. David E. Barmes was chief of Australian New Guinea's Government Division of Dental Services until 1967 when he joined WHO. While working in New Guinea, he took special interest in the lack of dental decay among 20,000 tribespeople living between Angoram and Am- boin on the swampy banks of the Sepik river. Now, he's in the area with a research team to try to find out why the villagers never have to worry about dentists. Barmes said that although all village people in the 19-village survey area had the same diet, there was a heavy contrast in the rate of dental decay depending where people lived. People in villages on low river banks where flooding was regular had no dental decay he said. Other people in higher areas free of flooding had all the normal dental problems. Soil analyses showed the best teeth were found in areas of flooding where silt-soil contained large traces of strontium, barium, calcium and phosphate. On the other hand, the higher the concentration of lead in the soil the higher the rate of dental decay. "Now, we have to find out exactly what's causing all this — and then find a way of using it to reduce dental decay right round the world, if we can," says Barmes. South simply drew trumps; cashed the last top spade, led a heart and sat back. It didn't matter to him what the opponents did. They could take two heart tricks. After that the man on lead Sent* $/ for JACOBY MODMN book fo: "Win ot Bridge," (c/o Irtii rtewl- p«pet), P.O. Bo* 4S9, Kodie City Sfofioii, New York, N.Y. 10019. would have to solve South's problems for him. A club lead would locate the queen. A heart or spade lead would allow a ruff and discard. . Incidentally, while this one time the scientific bidding might have proved expensive, we approve heartily of Souths three-spade bid. Give North the king of hearts instead of the king of spades and he would have been able to bid three no-trump, a contract which would have been unbeatable against any hand.
