Pass 34 Pass 4 A Pass Pass Pass As South himself admitted later, he was on the verge of raising North's two no trump to three when the saving thought struck him that maybe, despite the evid - enct, North might have four spades in his hand and consequently - that a spade contract might be safer. It was highly improbable that North had four spades, since he had had two chances to indicate that fact and had declined both of them, but South was a suspicious soul and liked to investigate everything fully. It was well for him that he did, since three no trump would have come to an Inglorious end, whereas the four spade contract was easy, notwithstanding the bad break of trumps. The diamond ace won the nrst trick, the club finesse was taken, and the trump and club aces cashed and the club suit clear ed by a ruff, and then South mere ly led to his trump king and played good clubs, letting West take h!s two trump tricks and eventually a heart Norths bidding was bad. He should have started out with a spade, not a heart. The superior ity of the latter suit did not beein to offset the advantages of naming ooin suns in normal order of rank Havln? chosen th hrt hM and Woggor North was afraid to mention spades oecause tnis would be a 'reverse, and he wasn't strong enough for that action. This was true enough but he overlooked the fact that nis two no trump was eauallv strong. Forced to more ambitious bidding than his cards warranted by nis own inuiai error, worth should have bid spades on the second round, instead of giving South prooiem he might well have "muff, ed."

The second landing would make a better ole lor the cutty bark club than Its basement quarters be and Arts Studios. When the Music and Arts building was sold last summer to St. John's College, the teachers were left homeless. To give them a home Haldor Haldorson, the owner, bought the round tower house next door at Broadway and Carlton. He worked through the summer and fall, ripping off wooden verandas and balconies and painting the whole thing white. It draws the eye like a frosted wedding cake. Old maples were trimmed, letting in the sun. The sunken lot was filled up to the street level and new sod was laid. Flowers were planted. The transformation was complete as you see in this picture. Come and visit the studios. Broad cement steps replace the rickety wooden ones. A wide red cement platform takes the place of the old veranda. Inside, you'll think you're back next door in the old Music and Arts building here's jthe same highly varnished mahog any panelling, the same cream sea - foam linoleum with black borders. Even the pictures are the same: Emil Walter's Iceland village and Severud's waves. The hall is L - shaped with the stairs round the coiner.

The first land - feet from tip to tip. ing has a door that opens no - cause there are five high porthole windows, criss - crossea wun tiny leaded panes. The top floor has Irene Thorolf - son s studio with her piano in tne round tower, a fascinating place with a domed celling. Any student would feel stimulated to play Bach in such a romantic setting like a theatre box at a command performance. The house has three lovely fire places. The one in Mr. Haldorson's suite on the ground floor, west corner, Is enameled white. The tiles facing the hearth and opening are pale green. Across the hall In the old den, now Charlotte Gilchrist's secretarial office, the fireplace is walnut, mellow as buttered taffy, with a mirror set In wooden bead ing. The tiles are a rich, chocolate brown to match the wood. On the mantel Mrs. Gilchrist has put an odd copper kettle she found "in the basement Junk." It has a curious double bottom, the outer edge perforated. She polished it till t shines like the sun. The third fireplace is on the second floor in John Norhagen's studio. It's white with a double mantel, the lower one rimmed with a tiny balustrade. The photos are all of his violin pupils, some of them quite little girls In white dresses.

Those 'trees' that appear to be growing up through the floor are rough hewn supports for the beams. The, j axe marks are visible under the thin coating of cement and whitewash. There's a pair of these treea separating Grace Rich' studio from the Cutty Sark's quarter, like a Greek colonnade. Here's a model of the famous three rigged sailing ship, a ship's brass bell, a roll of ship's officers with Mr. Haldorson as honorary old man. The sound of pianos and violin and the human voice soaring makes a nappy atmosphere for the old brick house. J.W. Thomson built it' In an old book of Winipeg, photographed in 1902, In The Tribune library there's a picture of No. 347 in its palmy days as a private - residence. The occupants of the house now are Mr. Haldorson and his sister, Miss Dosia Haldorson; Charles Mil - hau, John Norhagen, Grace Rich, Irvin Plumm, Helen Aubert, June Turner, Rev. E. Erthal, and the Cutty Sark club. By the way, that stout - appearing retaining wall at the back is just wire netting plastered over another proof in these days of building shortages that poverty is the mother of invention. That little square house at the rear with the glass tiles is just an entry to the basement studios nothing mysterious. rORDS ran cover meanings so pletely and give a false impression regarding important matters like the freedom of children to grow and become BuiTPsnful in their less, nor hearing to the deaf, but we can train their remaining powers, and they are many, to that the affliction may be greatly lessened in its effect on the per sonality and usefulness of the
