Hal Sims was i most superstitious bridge player but all his superstitions were common sense. He believed firmly that aces were lucky cards and spades the luckiest suit. He believed that when you were dealt a spade suit you should bid it. ! South's opening spade bid \ would meet Mr. Sims' full approval as it does with ours. He only has 10 high card points but he holds very good spades and plenty of distributional values. The rest of the bidding is interesting. South rebid his spades freely. North made two slam tries by cue bidding hearts but South was so ashamed of his lack of high card strength that he merely signed off at three and finally four spades. We sort of think that Hal Sims would have been carried away by his superstition and reached the slam. South had no trouble making 12 tricks. He ruffed the heart lead in dummy, ruffed a diamond, led a spade to dummy's queen, ruffed a second diamond, led a spade to dummy's jack to account for the adverse trumps, discarded twc clubs and two hearts on the rest of the diamond suit and lost one heart at the finish. The game was an International Match Point affair and South was rather unhappy with the result. He apologized profusely to his partner for having bid like a coward. He had no need to apologize At the other table South wasn't going to open a 10 - point hand. He passed. West bid a club, North jumped to two diamonds East bid two hearts and South passed again. West tried two no- trump; East went to three hearts and once more South kept quiet about bis spades. It was his last chance because West and North passed. Furthermore South was most disappointed when the smoke of battle had cleared away. East managed to moke his three- heart contract. fI Five Children Die Of Smoke CHICAGO (AP)' — Smoke from an apartment fire WDed five children Sunday on Chicago's West Side. The parents, sleeping in an adjacent room, were not injured. The victims were Victor, 3, Sarah, 4, Elaine, 6, Benny, 7, and Betty Ann, 13, all children of Mr. and Mrs. Benjamin Gray. Firemen said the fire apparently started in the parents' bedroom. The Cook County morgue said the children died from smoke inhalation. U.S. MINTS FOR TRAVELERS who want to be able to "pick up and go" on short notice, this house should be interesting. It's a mobile home set in a village of similar residences at Palm Springs, Calif. Since the establishment of the first U.S. mint in Philadelphia, there have been seven mints in operation at various times. At present, there are only three—Philadelphia, Denver and San Fraciico—and the San Francisco mint is no longer issuing coins.
