It may not appeal to those conservatives who play only draw poker, nothing wild, and none of that spit-in-the-ocean nonsense, but it would appear that the square poker chip has arrived and the traditional round one is on the way out.
An aficionado of five-card stud for many years, Mrs. Nell Moore of Dallas came home from a session one night in a state of annoyance. Several times during the evening chips had rolled off the table and, of course, into inaccessible places. Searching for them delayed the game.
"Why doesn't someone make square chips?" she asked her husband.
"Kid, maybe you've got something," her husband replied.
Mrs. Moore is now secretary-treasurer of Square Chip, Inc., which turns them out at the rate of 325,000 per day.
CORN IN PARADISE
The Los Angeles Angels, born in 1961, died last week. They are now resurrected as the California Angels, with a new home in Anaheim.
In announcing the long-expected move, President Robert Reynolds said: " Orange County is the capital of all California entertainment with such world-renowned places as Disneyland, Melodyland Theatre, Knott's Berry Farm and the Movieland Wax Museum. We hope to become a part of this growing family."
With that kind of thinking, Angels, the chances are you will.
