Pass Pass Dble Pass Pass Pass Opening lead— A * Don von Eisner has produced another Jake Winkman bridge mystery. This time the scene is laid at Los Angeles Bridge Week and there is plenty of action with Communist spies who seem to play bridge and get involved with bridge players. We don't quite understand the whole plot but the bridge hands are interesting as usual. In today's hand Winkman doubles three no- trump in the Fast seat. He wins the first spade with the queen and returns the suit. His partner cashes the ace and king and sets up his last spade by leading the deuce. South played ace and one diamond. Winkman took his king and got out with a club and eventually South went down two tricks. As Don points out, North probably should not have bid two diamonds in the first place but surely should have pulled the doable out to four diamonds, but bridge players do make mistakes. South corrals Winkman after 1 the game and asks how he came to double with so little. Winkman replies, "I knew there w;is something wrong with the bidding somewhere. I did want a spade lead but it was a bad double. Furthermore, you should have made your contract for a top Instead of going down for a bottom." Here is the winning line of play. South is in with that fourth spade. He notes that West led the deuce, not the four. He might read that as a sort of suit preference request for a club lead. Then all he would have to do would be to cash his three high clubs before Ex-Sgt. Trowbridge, Vietnam War Hero My Duty To Help," Says Mr. V.

Winkman would be forced to lead a heart. South would let that ride to dummy's pack and dummy's diamonds would all be giiod. The upshot of the story was that South decided he wanted to play with Winkman instead of against him. Starts This Month Tri-County Co-op Announces Rate Cut Beginning this month, Jefferson county members of Tri County Electric Cooperative will enjoy a new lower 'end bracket" on their electric bills. Cooperative Manager H. G. Downey announced new rate schedules for both rural residential and small power users. He explained that previously members classified as residential were paying 1.5 cents' per KWH for all over 200 per month The new schedule adds another reduction after 1200 KWH per month to 1.3 cents. Previously those classified as small power paid 2.0 cents for the kilowatt hours between 1000 and 3000 per month and 1.5 cents for all over 3000. The new schedule calls for 1.3 cents per KWH for all over 1000 per month. Downey explained that the new rate schedules recognize that modern living and farming practices increase amounts of electric power and result in noticeable savings for larger users. He said that members who use electricity for home heating, grain drying, air conditioning and dairy equipment will notice the saving immediately. Memebers that add equipment will also be able to take ad­ vantage of the lower costed power. Downey also called attention to the demand for three phase power on farms. He said the new rate schedule will make three phase practical and desi- reable for farmers with several large moto loads. William Groennert, president of Tri- County's Board of Directors, said that "the Board is very proud to be able to lower the rates — especiall y in light of the fact that the rates have never had to be raised since the Cooperative was organized 30 years ago." A. W. Bird, Member Service Supervisor for the Cooperative, stated, stated that a check of the records has indicated that the reduction could range from a low of a few dollars for a home with air conditioning or a farm with a seasonal load, such as pig brooding, to a high of as much as 10 per cent of the yearly bill for larger users. America's heroes who go off to war are modest young men. A perfect example of that came to light last Saturday after The Register - News carried a story about an unidentified Mt. Vernon man who had saved a girl's life after an accident. The incident became known then only because a Piopolis, HI., man who happened along was so impressed that he wrote a letter to the newspaper telling of the young man's heroic efforts. Telephone calls to the newspaper, by friends who had heard of the accident, revealed that Larry Trowbridge, a Vietnam War Veteran and Silver Star hero, was the man who saved the injured girl's life "Trowbridge, contacted by this newspaper, reluctantly confirmed that he had administered aid to the girl. "It was just something that had to be done, he said as he told a reporter that he had not intended to tell anyone about it. "I feel it is my duty to help someone in distress if I can," he said, "and I don't want any credit for it." Trowbridge, who lives at 428 south 17th street, said he came across the wreck scene on January 16, near Keenes. The injured girl had smallow ed her tongue and was near death. Using skills he learned as a combat soldier in Vietnam, Trowbridge dislodged the tongue from the girl's throat and gave her artificial mouth-to- mouth respiration. She had revived and was breathing well when the ambulance arrived to take her and others injured to Fairfield Memorial Hospital. "I got a call from the folks at the Fairfield hospital, thank ing me and saying the family wanted to exyress its thanks in person," Trowbridge said. He went to Fairfield later, only to learn that the girl and her injured mother had already been taken to St. Luke's Hospital in St. Louis. He talked with the only member of the family still MONEY ORDERS The maximum amount of a single postal money order that may be sent is $100, but as many $100 money orders as desired can be issued to an individual.

The girl revived by Trowbridge, 17-year-old Linda Collins of Imperial, Mo., died January 24 at the St. Louis hospital, eight days after the accident. Her death does not diminish the Mt. Vernon man's kind and skillful act. Without his aid she would have died at the accident scene. He gave her a chance to live. During 13 months of combat duty in Vietnam, Trowbridge, then a staff sergeant, had occasion to use mouth-to-mouth re- susitation on wounded buddies. He was wounded twice himself, earning two Purple Hearts, and won the Silver Star for heroism. In the thick of the fighting since the summer of 1965, Sgt. Trowbridge won the Silver Star for charging the bunker of a North Vietnamese machine gun crew which had his platoon pinned down. Three of his men were wounded and Trowbridge crawled forward to the bunker and threw a grenade which killed two and wounded two of the enemy. He suffered shrapn e 1 wounds from enemy grenades. After a week in a hospital -o- -o -o- he was back on duty with Co. A. of the 327th Infantry, 101st Airborne Division. Trowbridge, a ten-year veteran, returned to the states in July, 1967 and was a First Sergeant at Fort Campbell, Ky., before accepting his honorable discharge in November, 1967. He and his wife; the former Linda Hughes, have two children, Suzanne and Sonya. Basic Religions Six basic religions are recognized.
