Apparently the more than 5.(HBI persons who have driven past the Ackers' home recently would rather see for themselves And some have even paid the 50 cents admission the Ackers now charge for a closer look

Tor a youngster, learning good habits of cleanliness and
proper treatment of the common childhood diseases are the best measures to protect the ear.
You can start your child tm the road to a lifetime of good ear care by teaching him these simple rules
1 — Keep objects out of the ear.
2 — Don't shout into anyone’s ear
3 — When you have a cold, stay home and keep warm and dry
I — Never hit anyone on the ear or head with an object or your hand
5 — lf your cars are "runny” stay indoors
6 — Blow your nose gently, lean forward and blow both sides of your nose at once
7 — Stay out of swimming pools if you have a cold or if your ears are stopped up
N — S<*ek medical help w hen you have an earache.
9 — Parents should advise their children to speak up about hearing problems
Enfortunately. too many of us ignore our ears unless they hurt, or unless deafness gets so had that our relations with family . and friends are strained Even then, some people put off visiting the ear specialist or otologist
People who can't hear well and deny the fact often have related emotional problems which come through to those around them as impatience or era kl ness Remember that the stigma associated with deafness is due to those who do nothing about their hearing problem This is inconsiderate of others and a disservice to

We are indebted to Dr Bertrand Romanet of Paris for today’s hand. It illustrates at most unusual defense against a squeeze.
West opens the ace of diamonds and continues with the queen South is careful to ruff with dummy’s ace of spades and at this point East is nearly squeezed Suppose he chucks a club
South leads dummy s jack of spades and eventually picks up all East's trumps while discarding the nine of hearts from dummy. Then he is able to ruff out a club with hts last trump and make his contract.
Suppose East chucks a heart Once more South picks up East’s trumps hut now he has three heart tricks
Then why is East almost squeezed? Because East can discard a low trump South can still pick up the trumps and run off the last two. but East is discarding in hack of dummy a..d there is no squeeze against him
This particular hand was probably made up by the good doctor, but the play of un-derruffing to avoid a squeeze comes up on occasion and is well worth knowing

Arab Gamblers, Women Friends Blitz Riviera
NICE. France (UPI) - A group of rich Arab high-rollers with an entourage of beautiful women descended on the casinos of the French Riviera and won $19 million in a series of intense, night-long roulette sessions late this summer “We’ve never seen anything like this before.” a casino staff member said.
Officials at the Palm Beach casino at Cannes and the Monte Carlo casino said several “personalities" from Saudi Arabia and the Persian Gulf Emirates played heavily in their establishments over the past few months Casino directors, however, played down that impression They said the season s big winner at the Palm Beach casino was an Italian indus t ria list who won $2.0 million Casino officials maintain a policy of secrecy on the names of their gamblers They declined to identify any of the high-rollers France-Soir said th** Arab gamblers — dressed in Wes-tern-stylc business suits rather than flowing rot*** of their native lands — arrived in a fleet of Cadillacs accompanied by their women friends The Arab gamblers have now left the Riviera and gone to play at the casino at Divonne-Ees-Bams in the mountains near the Swiss border
