IT'S BIGGER THAN BINGO

HEY, LITTLE SUBURBAN HOUSEWIFE IN YOUR SNAZZY ST. MORITZ STRETCH PANTS, DON'T PAY ANY ATTENTION TO THAT BIG BRUISER BEHIND YOU SCRATCHING HIS BACK IMPATIENTLY—EVEN IF HE IS YOUR HUSBAND. THIS BOWLING PALACE WITH ITS DOZEN OR SO GLISTENING LANES, ITS AUTOMATIC PINSPOTTERS AND ITS MAGNIFIED SCORE SHEETS BELONGS TO YOU AS MUCH AS HIM. IN FACT, IT'S A PLACE FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY. THE REALLY COMPLETE 1966 BOWLING ESTABLISHMENT INCLUDES A POCKET-SIZE GYM WITH STATIONARY BICYCLES AND DELUXE SAUNAS, A SUPPLY SHOP THAT OFFERS PASTEL BOWLING BALLS AND POLKA-DOT SLIPPERS AND, FOR TEEN-AGERS, SEVERAL POOL TABLES, A JUKEBOX AND A SODA FOUNTAIN. SO BOWL AWAY, LITTLE LADY. WITH ALL THIS GOING ON, WHO NEEDS BINGO?

IF YOUR BOWLING CLUB MEETS ON FRIDAY EVENING, IT'S WORTH IT, EVEN IF YOU MUST MISS "THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E."

SO THE OLD FOLKS ARE USING ALL THE LANES—THAT DOESN'T MAKE IT ENDSVILLE. GO INTO THE POOLROOM AND PLAY A FEW GAMES OF EIGHT BALL.

WHEN THE BABY IN THE GREEN PANTS PARADES UP TO THE LINE AND GIVES IT THE FANCY FOLLOW-THROUGH, WHO CARES WHERE THE BALL GOES?

NEVER SHOULD HAVE EATEN THAT SECOND BAG OF ROASTED PEANUTS, BUT MAYBE 10 MINUTES IN THE HEAT OF THE SAUNA WILL REDUCE THE DAMAGE.
