Bingo! I added the above, then tried it with expansion/contraction of 50 50  
and the document went down from 244 pages to 241 pages. Then I changed back 
to more conservative factors of 20 20 as per some previous examples and the 
document went to 242 pages. But in both cases the end-of-line black slugs 
went away.  Almost all hyphenation disappeared as well.

It is nice to be guided by the hand of the gentleman who wrote the code.
Font expansion/contraction is now part of my  standard bag of tricks.   

Thanks for all you do, Thanh.
