Re "Investment pioneer funded spiritual efforts," July 9 I can attest that the late John Templeton had a "thrifty lifestyle." Many years ago, before even fax machines were in common use, I wrote a speech for him. I interviewed him by phone and, just before our conversation concluded, he told me in no uncertain terms to send him the review draft by air mail, not by overnight courier. This I did, and I completed the assignment at the cost of a few postage stamps. Art Detman Pacific Palisades

Five years ago this month, the long climb of stock prices we call the bull market began. As measured by such indexes as the Standard & Poor's 500 or the Dow Jones industrial average, stock prices have more than tripled since August, 1982. But many investors stopped cheering long ago and started worrying about how and when the party would end. Would there be a crash? Was it time to sell? There were and are no good answers, as you might expect, because nobody can truly predict the market.
