Q. — I ve been offered a service which guarantees stocks that double in a year or less. What do you think of it?
A. — All I can think of is a “Catch-22" type of answer:
If the guy is so smart, why should he be so stupid as to give away his secret for a few dollars? And if he’s stupid, why follow his advice?
Of course, he could be just a very unselfish, saintly sort of character. Frankly, I don’t think I could measure up to this level of altruism. If I could pick even two stocks which would double in a year, I d go into hock up to my neck, buy as many call options as I could get and. when my yacht came in. would toss this old typewriter overboard to be used as a mooring anchor Imagine, doubling your mone\ every year! Sure flouts working Seriously. I have no way of checking up on the blurb you sent me — nor would I want to I did notice, however, that most of the claimed successes

Q. — Is there any bond which would give us a better return than we get from savings-' With absolute safety? We have $35,(MMI in long-term savings at 5*7 percent A. — I feel that a savings account coming under the FDD’ or FSI.IC ceiling of $211.(UMI or under sound state insurance is “absolutely" safe I feel that a treasury obligation is “absolutely” safe, even though the market value of the bond — on any given day before maturity — may be more or less than the face amount I don’t think long-term savings should lie working, today, for as low as 5L2 percent.

(J — I'm in the military overseas and want to own stocks How small an investment can I make? I d like to make some short-term profits.
_ if you want to buy, for example, Hut shares of a $4(1 stock today in the hopes of making a short-term (less-than-6-months) profit, then you must have at least $2,0011 (50 lie front margin) plus commissions to put into the deal.
lf you want to own long-term stocks, you can begin by putting in as little as $40 every
month, or even every third
month, via a regular purchase plan set up with a member of the N. Y. Stock Exchange.

At least five travel agencies around the country now have special tours for the physically handicapped and the blind. And Pan American World Airways this year became the first airline to offer regular trips to Europe and the Orient for the handicapped.
Betty Hoffman, who operates the nation’s first and largest travel agency offering tours for the handicapped, says, “A lot
has happened in the last two years. Even in the last six months you could notice it. Some of the motels and airlines are asking me what they can do to help the handicapped.” Travel Obstacles Bright as the picture is beginning to look, the physically handicapped still face many travel obstacles, including inconsistent airline policies on serving the disabled. In addition, some
resort areas deliberately construct fancy structural features such as spiral staircases, sunken gardens or elevated entrances, all of which hinder the physically handicapped.
“Many resort hotels in Rome, Paris and Miami still refuse admission to the handicapped during the season.’’ says Murray Fein, a Hallandale, Fla,, travel agent who operates tours for the disabled. “They say their regular cus-
tomers just don’t want to see the handicapped.”
Travel agencies offering specialized tours include: Evergreen Travel Service,

Half the reason you want a small car is the engine...
The United States Auto Club sanctioned the test and certified the results in January and February of 1974 A Dodge Dart Sport and a Plymouth Duster, equipped with the 318 V-8. actually got better gas mileage in city driving than a Chevrolet Nova equipped with a six-cylinder engine
In the same test. USAC certified that a Plymouth Duster and a Dodge Dart Sport, equipped with a 225 "Slant Six" engine and new standard 2 76 rear axle, got much better gas mileage than Nova or Mavenck, with six-cylinder engines did better than a four-cylinder Mustang ll in the city and comparably on the highway.
...the other half is the car!
• Dodge Dart Sport and Plymouth Duster are sticker-priced below Volkswagen's most popular model:
• Dodge Dart Sport and Plymouth Duster give you 20 inches more total hiproom than Maverick-and also more than Nova, Pinto or Vega
• Plymouth Duster and Dodge Dart Sport give you as much trunk space as 3 Pintos or 2 Vegas.
• Plymouth Duster and Dodge Dart Sport have electronic ignition standard-can save you up to $62 on recommended ignition maintenance in the first 24,000 miles alone over competitive 6's like Nova’s:'"
