Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - July 30, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 2 The Odar Rapids Gazelle: Tues.. July 30.

Vour rmrliipt is yiiu a list of iiuesi- ment ennipanies. The K bonds, nf i-uursi1 should remain as they are until you do relire when yon eaii 1) switch to II bonds; 2) fash in a certain percentage every year or ;i) cash them all in and HO for higher yields if then obtainable. Your tax bracket in relircmcnt will determine your best course. As far as your leaving an e late is concerned: Right now you have to proceed on just about the same basis as though you had four children and a dozen grandchildren because at 52. or 55. or fill you are your own heir. That is. you must protect your capital for your own life- lime use. No safe formula for eating into that capital so that it will run out when you die is feasible until you are much older and can consider a life- time annuity. So you must turn your investing toward safety and growth of principal and in- come. I don't think much nf your idea of averaging down on Ihe conglomerate stock. Il's selling now at a level lo yield better than 1L1 percent. To me that indicates some doubts of its ability to continue. Besides, if you put more money into stocks it should give you much more diversification in sound issues than you have. Q If these treasury and federal agency bonds are so safe, why Ihe "bid" and "asked" prices'.' A There's always u difference of opinion between buyer and seller even when there is no question of safety. Furthermore, the difference in most cases represents Ihe commission or mark-up price which the broker uses to stay- in business. "WHEN This is a shortened form of "when, as and if issued" and refers to a conditional transaction in a security which has been authorized for issuance bin has not yet been issued.

He knows about this pos- sibility and tries lo take the finesse when the loss is least likely to hurt him. Now look at today's hand. South will duck Ihe first hear lead and win Ihe second one in dummy. Then, if South is at all careless he will lead a diamond. After all. he has to knock out Ihe diamond ace in order to lake his four diamond tricks. East will take his ace and knock out Smith's ace of hearts. Sooner or later South will have to take Ihe club finesse for his ninlh trick. The finesse will lose and West will take two heart tricks to set South. An expert South will look for nine tricks at the start of play and see that two clubs will be needed. He will lose Ihe club 'inesse right away. He will lose :he ace of diamonds trick later, Dut there will be no way for East to put West in to take those heart tricks.
