when he said he wants the contracts with us rather than

called SPACE STATIONS).
Made a new board for ONE AT A TIME BY THE MILLIONS.

The sister of the inventor of TRIPPPLES called from Connecticut.

Told her that it would be in S & T and BOOKWORLD.
She has been visiting stores to try and place TRIPPLES.
She found a very complete game store : -

{26 La Salle Road
{West Hartford, Conn.
I told her about Johnson's in Springfield.

Played ONE AT A TIME BY THE MILLIONS with the Richters.
Used the rule that new cards are covered as in the

Thought of a BINGO type game for View Master, instead of

Called Tom Atwater to see if he had sent the contracts
for ODD OR EVEN, INTERPLAY, and TEMPO. Yes, today.

In RENDEZVOUS, instead of starting at a corner, I started
at A.
Phil said that an article like my column in S & T should be
getting about $75. He was surprised I was doing it free. (cont. on 8/13)
