Note: We hope you will enjoy Budweiser
beer during your spring vacation, and
we also hope you'll do so responsibly.
While you're having fun, don't forget to
eat and sleep. A little moderation will
make your vacation-and everyone
else's-a lot more enjoyable.

You spot the girl of your immediate dreams
sitting on the beach. You drop to your
knees and begin digging in the sand. When
you've attracted her attention, you say:
I seem to have lost my Congres-
sional Medal of Honor."
If she immediately begins helping you in
your search, you know the line has
worked. However, she may say:
"Don't expect tse to help you. I
think war is immoral."
In that case, stop digging, look at her as if
trying to shake off some past, tragic ex-
perience, and say quietly and intensely:
"So do I...non'."
This will make her curious, even sym-
pathetic about your tragic past, and you
may want to exploit the situation by affect-
ing a limp as you move toward her blanket.
Should she ask if you were wounded, you

the occasion. For example, should you
spot a girl reading Proust, it would not
serve your interests to say:
"Hey, didn't we meet at the Rocky
Horror Picture Show?"
Conversely, if she's reading "Soup Opera
Digest," you should refrain from using
openings such as:
"I bet you're just as excited as I am
about the breakthrough research on
quantum theory."
Above all, be original. One of the least
effective pick-up tines is:
"I'll bet you're a Taurus."
Almost all lines based on astrology lead
nowhere; the girl has heard them too often.
However, that astrological aversion offers
you the chance to use the "anti-line" line:
"At least six different women today
have asked me what my sign is. Boy,
can't they think of something rele-
vant to talk about?"

experience, something many young
women seek. At once you become a roman-
tic figure, intriguing, a bit mysterious,
someone not cut from the common mold.
Remember. What you're after is a re-
sponse. Otherwise, a tine is worthless. The
following will evoke at least some reac-
"When I saw you, I finally figured
out how to finish my novel."
Or - "I'm part Indian, but I still
burn. Maybe your lotion will work."
Or-"I think that's Robert DeNiro's
beach house over there. At least,
that's what Brooke told me."
Even with lines such as these, however,
you may still strike out. In fact, you may
find that you lack the inherent skill to de-
liverany line well. Should this be the case,
do not give up. Instead, consider the fol-
lowing precept, which has served many a
