SATURDAY, JULY 13, 19G3 THE INDIANAPOLIS STAR - PAGE 7 Marmon-Herrington Plant To Be Closed Slieimvold On Bridge By ALFRED SHEINWOLD IV "Two axioms form the basis r counting: "1. There are 13 cards in each suit. "2. There are 13 cards in each hand." So writes Marshall Miles as he introduces an important chapter in his new book, "All Fifty-Two Cards."

See if you can come up with the Miles solution. Bank Robbers Left Few Clews State police detective said yesterday they had few clews to the identity of two men and a woman who robbed the Fishers branch of the Wainwright Bank and Trust Company in southern Hamilton County of $16,277 Thursday morning. But FBI agents and detectives said they were checking fingerprints taken from inside the bank and from a car abandoned by the bandits. The robbery was the second in four years at the Fishers' branch. In the first holdup, $7,400 was taken on April 30, 1959. Board Reviews Bank Application The State Board of Financial Institutions yesterday reconsidered an application from the Union Bank and Trust Company of Franklin to establish a branch bank west of Greenwood in Johnson County. The board previously rejected the request when a Greenwood bank objected to the branch facility. The board took the matter under advisement after yesterday's" rehearing. It is expected to rule on the application next month. YOU LEAD the queen of hearts, holding the trick, and continue with the jack of hearts. Declarer ruffs, leads a spade to the ace and another back to the king, capturing your partner's queen. Now South leads a club to the king, a club back to the ace, and the queen of clubs to discard a diamond from dummy. He leads a fourth club, ruffing in dummy, and ruffs dummy's last heart in his hand. The time has come for the diamonds. South leads the deuce of diamonds from his hand, and you play . . . what? If you're not ready with your play you may be out of luck. THE SECRET IS to count as you go. You discovered at the second trick that South started with only one heart. The play of the spades showed that South started with ex actly five spades. You made a mental note that South had seven cards in the two unplayed suits combined. When South showed up with exactly four clubs you knew that he still had three diamonds in his hand. HENCE it could cost you nothing to play a low diamond when South led the deuce of diamonds from his hand. You were still sure to win your two diamond tricks and conceivably South may have a losing finesse to take if you conceal your diamond strength with a prompt play. This turns out to be the case. South many finesse with dummy's eight if you play a low diamond promptly enough. His best chance to win a diamond trick is to guess the location of the ten. He cannot go wrong if you put up the king of diamonds; he may go wrong if you play low. DAILY QUESTION Dealer, at your right, opens with one diamond. You hold: A 83 V QJ 1062 A K 3 10 6 2. What do you say? ANSWER: Bid one heart. The hand is worth an over-call at the level of one. It is not worth an overcall at the level of two, particularly when your side is vulnerable.

(Copyright 1943) Marmon - Herrington Company, a pioneer in the automotive industry, will discontinue operations in the former Duesenberg plant here, it was announced yesterday. The company will move its all-wheel drive vehicles division and facilities for manufacturing parts for old models to the Cardair Division plant at Lebanon. Executive offices of the firm will be moved to Oak Hill, W. Va., spokesmen said. AN AUCTION of equipment which will not be moved from here will be held at the plant, 1511 West Washington Street, July 30-Aug. 1, when the move is completed. At one time, the plant on the city's near-West Side employed some 1,000 workers. The present force, however, is about 40 members of Local 34, United Auto Workers, and supervisory personnel. Although Marmon-Herrington heavy-duty truck division recently was sold to a Dallas (Tex.) company, officials denied a report that the firm was abandoning the automotive business. "WE HAVE continuing contracts for our all-wheel drive vehicles' division with the Ford Motor Company and we will accept automotive equipment contracts any time they are available," they said. John B. Long, company president, said the plant here was going to be closed down because its 275,000 square feet of space was not needed. The company has required only a portion of the space for its continuing automotive lines since large scale contract work has not been steadily available in recent years, he explained. The M a r m o n-Herrington plant here, located on a 16-acre plot of ground, was pur- DAILY CROSSWORD ACROSS 1. Escapes aco.' dentally, as water 6. City on. Red River, N.Dak. 11.

A government source con firmed that Sandys' talks with opposition leader Forbes Burn- ham concerned a possible coalition of Burnham's Nation al Congress Party (PNC) and Jagan's ruling Leftist People's Progressive Party (PPP). The source cautioned, however, that the discussions were extremely tentative. Informed sources said the basis for a Burnham-Jagan accord would be a British government pledge of art early call probably late this year of a conference on British Guiana's independence. chased from the Cord Corporation, manufacturer of the world-famous Duesenberg and Cord automobiles.
