Dorothy, Jean, Virginia, Bill, Jim, and Tom are six young Beartowntonian adults who have been close friends since their childhood. They went through high school and college together, and when they finally paired off and became engaged a triple engagement party was in order. They decided to break the news to their friends in a very unusual manner and selected the following scheme.
Early in the party everyone was given a card containing the following cryptic information:
Who now are six will
soon become three,
Tom, who is older than
Jim, is Dorothy's brother.
What three engagements were announced at the party?
Check the next issue of Beartown News for the answer.
FROM LAST MONTH
HOW COLD WAS IT?
The Beartown Constable
had neglected to enter the temperatures in his log book for the past 5

had been at noon for the past 5 days.
SOLUTION: The five temperatures were 1, -1, 2, -2, and 3.
