    A winnerwas announced in the Feb 80 ish, page 87. Apparently an army hospital nurse named Slazor Gossage phoned in the answer, “In about five minutes.” But that sounds like a made-up name to me, and the winner’s photo looks a lot like a ‘Poon editor (Ted Mann?)in a wig and nurse’s hat. Make of this what you will.
