Ind (AP) -When 5-year-old Tani Jo Waltz of Webster, daughter of Mr. and Mrs Mick Waltz, was asked by her father about her first day at kindergarten, the conversation went like this: Dad: “Did you like it?’’ Tani: “Yeh.” Dad: “Did you meet a lot of kids?’’ Tani. “Yeh ” Dad: “Did you talk to your teacher7’’ Tani: “Yeh ” Dad: “What did she say?’’ Tani: “She told me to be quiet.” SPRING GROVE, III (AP) — Jim Miller found out a year ago that 280 of his 700 employes smoked. So he started an “I Quit Smoking Club” and has rewarded with $50 bills the IO who managed to stay off cigarets for a year The IO who stuck it out were members of a group of 38 employes who took the pledge. They all work at Intermatic Inc., a timer manufacturing firm of which Miller is president. “I thought 3$ taking the pledge was sensational, a fine percentage to make the move for such a hard habit to kick,” said Miller, who stopped smoking 2$ years ago at the age of 25. “And I thought it was great that IO lasted it out to win the $50 awards.” He said the 38 names were printed each week in the office newsletter. Those who dropped out had lines drawn through their names; those who didn’t got $50 Tuesday. “The list was the first thing all the workers looked at when they got the newsletter,” said Miller. “The ages of the IO who stuck it out ranged from 22 to 83 and included two women. When the year ended, they came into my office and signed a certificate that they had not smoked Another two nearly made it, but admitted that during the year they had smoked two or three times. “I told the IO winners that according to the American Cancer Society if they continue not to smoke, they will add nine years to their lives and that would amount to $40,000 to $50,(WK) in pension and social security money — and that they also saved about $250 in the cost of cigarets during the year. Miller says he’s now considering putting up $1,000 or more and letting those who quit for a year split it. “I want to lick this smoking habit some way,” he said.
