Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - April 11, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 8 The Cedar Rapid* Gazette: Thurs., April ll, 1974 What Young People Think Watergate Dulls Republican Image Tic-Tac-Toe That Teaches Once in a while you and your friends probably find yourselves with little or nothing to do. Or maybe you and your family are traveling and need ideas to help pass the time. A clever and enjoyable way to use these moments is to play “creative” tic-tac-toc, tic-tac-toe that teaches. It is played similarly to the customary game, but besides requiring careful placement of your marks, this new method requires a correct answer as well. To begin, draw the usual playing figure for the normal tic-tac-toe game which consists of boxes made by crossing two horizontal parallel lines with two vertical parallel ones. You may wish to make the figure a bit larger, as some of the creative ways will need spaces large enough for words. Once the figure is drawn, you begin your contest. But instead of using the simple X and 0, try some numbers. The starting player will place a number between zero and five in a box of his choice. The other player must now double that number in his mind, locate a strategic box. and place the correctly doubled number in it. Again, it is the starter's turn. He must take his opponent’s number, double it in his mind, and place the correct answer in a carefully chosen box. The game continues with each player doubling his opponent’s previous number and filling in a box until a diagonal, horizontal, or vertical tic-tac-toe results. Or if a player fills in an answer that is not correct, his opponent wins. 4 (2) (32) Other numerical rules for the tic-tac-toe game may be used. Perhaps your rule will be to add three to the opponent’s number each time. Or very young players may wish to add or subtract just one each time. And counting backwards or forwards by two’s (odds and evens) is always fun. ♦ * * Now you may wish to use letters of the alphabet. For example, the starter puts any letter in a box. The opponent must think of the letter com ing just before that one in the alphabet and place the correct answer in a box, and so on.

Or make the rule of your game pretty challenging so that you must really think to be able to fill all of the spaces correctly. Tic-tac-toe need not be just a “doodling” game.

If I install a Used 2-barrel manifold and carburetor, will imy gas mileage improve enough to offset the expense? I plan to buy the used manifold and carburetor at a wrecking yard and will install them myself. Also, ’will I be able to use regular grade gas with the 2-barrel?
