Dear Raerlcr Thumbs up for popcorn, if you are careful what you pop it in and what you put on it. About It per cent of the calories in plain popcorn arc from vegetable fat and over half of these are the poly- vmsatnrated type. It is. then, a very low-fat food and what fat it contains is probably benefi- cial, since the usual American diet contains limited amounts of polyunsaturated fat. 1 would recommend popping it in a small amount of cooking oil. Of these, safflower oil con- tains the least amount of sat- urated fat and the largest per- centage of polyvnsaturated fat. Corn oil is about second on the list. Then leave, it plain, sea- soned with salt. This makes a far tetter snack than most items.

Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Billy Cantley, age 7. of Lake City, South Carolina, for his ques- tion: Was Santa ever a real person? It's getting to be that time of year when young persons start io wonder. Dozens of Santas appear in Ihe stores and on the- streets. And you know for a fact that One Special Santa will visit your home on Christmas Eve. Is this one the Real Santa? Or are there dozens of real Santas? Or perhaps they are all just kindly, grown- up friends who dress up and pretend to be Santa. Tf this is so, perhaps there was once a real Santa who lived long ago.

Popcorn, along with turkeys, belongs to the tradition of Thanksgiving. The Indians brought the popcorn to the feast and amazed the colonists by popping it.

Dew Reader Only your doctor knows who is right, my dear. After all, he is the one who writes the prescription or has the pill. Ask him. much like our Santa. But he had the same kindly thoughts and deeds, especially far the children. His name was Nich- olas. Though he was only i teenager, he was a bishop. No his church was not the North Pole, or anywhere near it. He lived in the town of Myra, no1 far from the Mediterranean Sea, where the weather was al ways warm and sunny. Young Bishop Nicholas knew all the people in Myra. He shared their happy times anc listened to their troubles. When someone was sad, he wantec to make things better. But h did not want the people t. know who helped them. Ven often he wanted to give prcs ents to his young friends. Bu he did not want them to knew where the presents came from That is the sort of person hresenLs to their children, espe- cially at Christmas time. This idea was very popular and people of other land copied it. In time, almost ev- erybody forgoi the young bish- op who started it all. Some changed his name to Santa Claus acd changed his home to the North Pole. A few still call- ed Km Saint Nicholas, or Saini Sick. In time, candles and Christmas trees and all sorts of other merry tilings were added. But the best idea never changed.

Pass Pass Opening lead: Five of 4 West allowed himself to be bamboozled by a foxy oppo- nent and permitted South to escape at a bargain price in today's hand. North opened in second position with three clubs. He had a reasonable expectation of winning six tricks even if partner's hand was worthless would produce a maximum loss of 500 points against an almost certain game or slam available, to the opposition. East made takeout dou- ble and now South came up with an enterprising call. In- asmuch as his right hand opponent might be expected to hold the hulk of the out- standing strength on deal, the king of spades looker] like probable trick snd South's holding in the red suits oflerrer] reasonable protection against adverse attack. He therefore decided to take a shot nt three no trump. H was not his expectation that nine tricks were availa- ble on the deal. His length in clubs precluded nny reasona- ble hope of being able to de- fend successfully against a game contract by the oppo- nents, nnd It was South's in- the hand for a bargain price. West had 10 high card points, a good holding facing a partner who had made a vulnerable takeout double at Ihe three level. He doubted that South could make his bid and he accordingly made a penalty double. North and East passed and South chose to gamble it out instead of retreating to the safer haven of four that ac- tion might goad the oppo- nents into bidding their game. West opened the five of spades and East put up the ace. He shifted to the king of hearts at trick two to test that suit, but when he did not. get an encouraging sig- nal from partner, he led back the ten of spades. South put up the king and ran for cover with seven club tricks. He then conceded himself down one, for a very modest loss of 100 points on the deal. In our opinion, West did cot show good judgment by doubling three no trump. Game in spades for his side was a virtual certainty, and a profit cf at least 820 points might be expected to accrue if he merely Ignored his op- ponent aod proceeded to (our ipades. The prospects of InflicUng severe damage to three no trump were not bright inas- much as South might be ex- pected to have a stopper in Iwth major his bid to be honest. If South was bluffing and retreated to four clubs, West would be bound to carry on to tour spades because the penalty against four clubs amounts to only .300 points [two dia- monds, two hearts, nnd one In short, whether his oppo- nent was serious or fooling, West might jusl as well have made the call he should have chosen had South passed the double of three ly, four spades. trict, emulating the cards which prostitutes advertise themselves a s secretaries, riding teachers, companies and the like.

The group paired off, with the men's hacks to the women, who were directed to pat parts of the body of the men, she charged. She said she was shocked, humiliated and left, but later became emotionally upset, had to leave her school and fi- nally sought the care of a psy- chiatrist.
