years before I found out how limited the game really After I had an older cousin who taught me how to play chess and I liked the idea of learning which moves each piece could but I was never any To play chess well you have to have a good sense of spatial and I have You have to be able to visualize what the chess board will look like five moves from and that is so far beyond my ability I dont even consider playing chess any The other card game Ive played and liked is In our house we played a form of solitaire called Canfield was the name of the principal gambling house in Saratoga when Saratoga was Las Vegas in the years before World War I was never in the gambling but I was told that you bought the deck of 52 cards for one dollar and you were paid back by the house for each card you played out in You could only go through the deck If you got out ten you lost just and if you got out you won If you played out the whole deck of 52 you got back In our we never played for but it was fun to keep track to see how much you would have won or lost if you had been playing for For games are divided into two Games like baseball and tennis are athletic contests that are great fun and good for Theyre personal little wars in which no one gets Video games like PacMan and pinball games are nothing more than interesting If the time comes in my life when I wish to get it over with

SEE THE TIDE COMDOS UP Jack Anderson Peso aid an election gimmick The Reagan administrations dramatic announcement last week of a million aid program for businessmen along the Mexican border was an electionyear political nothing Its not that the small businessman in southern New Arizona and California arent being badly hurt by the devaluation of the Mexican Their erstwhile customers from across the border cant afford to shop in the United States any while Americans are bargain hunting in where their dollars are worth twice what they used to But the fact is theres nothing specjal about the Small Business Administrations special million Peso of direct loans and guarantees to the stricken The money was there all It is part of what SBA had left over in funds for this years loan And one reason it hadnt been spent is that the SBA has been much more tightfisted in coming to the rescue of small businessmen who are drowning from the effects of high interest rates and the Theres also nothing special about the loans The border businessmen will be paying the same rates as any of the SBAs other a program that would have provided lowinterest loans to the stricken businesses was killed by the Reagan administration last So how did Scrooge become Lady Bountiful overnight Texas Bill Clements claims a big share of credit for the tran He issued a press release that explained The SBA agreed to Clements proposal to make available at lesat million in direct federal assistance to businesses along the Texas tenfold increase over the amount available to Texas small buisnessmen hard hit by the peso Another claimant was San Diego Mayor Pete A spokesman put it this way San Diegos Washington lobbyists were checking around and not having much so Wilson went to the White House for Presto The loan program was announced in response to our request to come down and give us some Theres a certain odd truth in both these Clements and Wilson are Republicans engaged in tough election Clements is currently losing ground in his re election while Wilson is fighting to stop the erosion of his early lead over Jerry Brown in the race for Californias senate So its undoubtedly correct technically that the Peso Pack loan program was announced as a result of Clements and Wilsons pleas for help from the White Even though the funds were already available in the SBA the hard pressed GOP officeseekers were obviously instrumental in having the loan money gussied up as a new special To make sure Texas and California voters got the SBA Ad ministrator James Sanders took pains to praise Clements and Wilson for their leadership in working with us to put this effort Footnote An SBA spokesman admitted that the million would have been available anyway to the border businessmen if they had gone through the right He told my associate Peter Grant that part of the reason for announcing the special program was to let the needy businessmen know that the money was there He also denied that politics had anything to do with the credit given to Clements and But if the funds were there all what was there to give anyone credit for
