In New York the papers reported that one Gregorio Contreras hit for $100,000 in the official state lottery, but it took 24 hours to find him. "The people from the lottery, they want me to be there when the ticket is drawn...they want me to get up at 8 o'clock! But you know, on my day off I like to sleep late," Contreras was quoted as explaining. O.K., but where was he all the rest of that time? "Out playing Parcheesi with a friend." Probably didn't want to quit while he was ahead.

When last we left Nessie, the world's favorite monster was still hiding on the bottom of Loch Ness, avoiding the crew from the Belmont (Mass.) Academy of Applied Science. Now we tune in as the academy's Robert Rines and Tim Dinsdale. of the Loch Ness Investigation Bureau, are out there in a small boat. They are trailing plastic jugs filled with concentrated salmon oil and other stuff that International Flavors & Fragrances Inc. has bottled for them. The jugs are full of holes to let the goop leak out slowly. Then, suddenly, both Rines and Dinsdale realize that they are fishing for Nessie—and that if they get a strike, it is liable to be an absolute dandy. "They both turned green and headed right back to shore," reports Carol Hurley, Rines' secretary.
Atta girl, monster. The score is now Nessie 3, Academy 0. It begins to look like a sweep.
