I hold 36 chares of Abbott Laboratories which don’t give lur* much income. A — You must have heard the story of the man who, learning to drive a car, was pleasantly surprised at how well the car ran once la* released the brakes. Not that Abbott Labs - an “A” quality stock — is to be termed a “brake” on any investment portfolio. Hut if you continue to hold a stock selling — recently — at around 53 and which pays $1.20 a year (a return of about VA percent), what can you expect in the way of income? I keep talking growth stocks (Ruch as Abbott) for those who seek growth, and about income investments — of the available from many large brokerage firms.

A — Inflation diminishes the* buying power of the dollar no matter where those dollars are kept - as dollars — in insured savings, in the sugar bowl or under the mattress or in any investment, such as bonds or insurance, which is expressed in terms of a fixed number of dollars. 4    4    4 Q I am 8<i, living on an an- here about nuity pUrchased 1f™m ?" ‘“HT awe company.

I The Cedar Rapids (iazettc; Fri., Feb. 22, 1971 WIN AT BRIDGE By Oswald & James Jacoby The correct play of a suit is likely to depend on how many tricks you need in if.. Today’s hand is a classic example of a perfect safety play. You are in a six-heart contract and th** contract is a cinch if you can avoid the loss of two heart tricks. Your only worry is if you find ail four in one hand and your safety play is to lay down your ace of hearts at trick two. West shows out whereupon you lead a second heart to dummy’s king and a third one back toward your jack. Had East shown out you would lead a second heart toward dummy and hold West to one trump trrk. Suppose you were in seven. You would have no way to make that contract against certain holdings and would lose this time if you played your ace of hearts, but you would not make this play in a grand-slam contract. You would lead a heart toward dummy’s king. West would show out and you would have V+CHRD«fr/^ NORTH 4 A 2 V K975 ♦ 86 3 ♦ A K Q 9 WEST 4 Q IO 8 6 3 V __ 4 .I 10974 ♦ 10 6 2 south (D) 4 K 4 V A .186 4 ♦ A KQ2 + 85 22 EAST 4 J 9 7 5 V Q IO 3 2 ♦ 5 4 J 7 4 3 Both vulnerable West North Fast South 14 Pass 34 Pass 34 Pass 44 Pass 4 NT.
