Call it the ultimate advertising coup or simple serendipity.Whatever it was, it sold mattresses.When the calls rolled in to the Laurel office of Dial-A-Mattress last Saturday, the question was the same: "What is the answer to the clue for 1 Down in today's crossword puzzle?"Sales staff members were a bit puzzled. All except one, who was doing The Sun's crossword puzzle and found this clue: Order for 1-800-Mattres. He knew the answer. Serta, of course.But thousands of people were stumped. So they called the number and were connected with Dial-A-Mattress.

I am writing in response to your Dear Elvis letter entitled "A Crossword Fit for a King," which appeared in the May 10 edition.Just as many people were disappointed after losing the Sun Magazine crossword puzzle, I am sorry to hear the Mind Games puzzle no longer will be printed. Surely, I'm not the only one who feels this way.Why not either include both a crossword and a Mind Games puzzle each week or offer each one on alternating weeks? This would provide a variety of puzzles to a variety of people.

For a pre-Title IX girl, I have a pretty lengthy exercise resume. There were no soccer teams for little girls when I was growing up; no sports teams for girls in high school. And the women who played a sport when I was in college had to get permission from their "dorm mother" to travel to an away game. They also had to pay for their own equipment and physicals. But I have tapped into every exercise trend since racquetball, including indoor tennis, running 10K races, Step aerobics, spin classes, walking, circuit training and Pilates.

Recently on a glorious summer afternoon, my wife and I were driving through the Maryland countryside. We had floated across the Wicomico River on the quaint three-car Whitehaven Ferry. Verdant fields flanked the scenic two-lane stretch of country road we eased along. Magnificent trees swayed in the wind. A large hawk, perhaps an osprey, soared above us. In the midst of this pastoral splendor, my wife turned to me, gave me a long, meaningful look and said, "I need a four-letter river in Italy."
