Skinner received the award for exemplary conduct, WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Republican Leader Everett M. Dirksen says a primary GOP aim in the new Democratic- controlled Congress wilJ be to "restore stability and confidence in the dollar." "We're in for a real, tough struggle with inflation," Dirksen said in an interview. "Congress can help the new President by pinching down on expenditures and keeping tha budget from going through the inflationary ceiling. "I think the country has shown that it has taken a conservative turn in its attitude toward new legislation and the demands that are being made on the federal government. I think that's ali to the good. "So far as we Republicans are concerned, I anticipate that one of our primary aims will be to restore stability and confidence in the dollar. I think a number of Democrats will also be interested in that goal." Tlie Illinois senator said that Robert Mayo, designated by President-elect Nixon as budget director, has painted a grim picture of forthcoming budgetary difficulties and their effect on inflationary trends. Dirksen observed that Mayo "knows his way around overn- mer.t" through 19 years of service as an economist and debt manager of the Treasury."

If East held a third diamond then West could not hold more than two more and three diamond tricks and a heart would not beat him. If West had started with five diamonds East would not have another diamonds to lead. Eventually West led the queen of spades. By this time South had worked out a line of play to make up for his carelessness at trick two. He let the queen hold, West continued with the jack and South let that card hold also.
