All Mrs. Chubb needed lo set the contract, wfis one more ruff,'as she already was sure of three tricks—the two she already had won and the Ace of Hearts. Therefore, to trtek five, Mrs. Cfciibh Ic-d the King of Spades. Or- c'.lnarlly a declarer takes a ruff in Dummy and a discard in closed hand whenever possible, but in this case It was more Important for Mr. I-enz to keep Irumps In Dummy; so he discarded frcm Dummy Ihe 4 of Clubs. East played the 10 of Spades and Declarer ruffed with the 10 of Hearts, keeping his C suot as an entry to'Dummy. Declarer then led' th?

(She could make could prevent Delong strong Club suit. Mr. Herter. ! clarer from going game and'con- East, passed. His hand was practically worthless, containing only: Spades, 10, 7. 2; Hearts, none; Diamonds, 8, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2; Clubs, 9, 7, 6. 3. Being blank in the adverse Heart suit was not, sufficient reason for raising his partner who had mad3 only a following bid. On the second round of bidding, Mr. Lenz, South, passed; Mrs Chubb, West, bid two Spades. Four cards of the adversaries' suit being a feature of her strong band she was prepared to bid until she got the contract at Spades or could donbie Hearts safely. Mrs. Munce North, went to three Hearts, stiji refraining from bidding hfr clubs until she had toM her partner how extremely strong her hand was for the Heart bid. Mr. Herter, East was tempted at this point to give a raUe to his partner who ha:' she-nil such Spade strength, but he inferred from the vigorous North and South bidding that his partner had not many Hearts for him to ruff. He was wrong in this nat- tracl. She led the 10 of Diamonds, which Mr. Lenz wcu with Dummy's 5 of Hearts. Then leading Dummy's 9 of Hearts and underplaying with the 6 from his own hand, he drew the last adverse trump, and all of his Clubs were good, giving him 64 trick points, 50 for making a doubled contract, and 80 honors fo: his four honors in one hand. At Progressive or Duplicate, there would be an additional 125 points Sor making game in one deal. Commenting en the play, Mr. Work picked oul as the hijh paint of the hand Mr. I*nz' lead of the Club from Dummy and discard of a Spade from his own hand at trick four. Had- he led a Heart or discarded a Diamond, his contract would have failed. With the inevitable Spade lead to the next trick, Dummy would have been obliged tc ruff, and weakened to Ihree trumps, fiiriher forcing would have prevented Dummy's running of Clubs. At Contract, the bidding would have been: South one Heart; West. Handicap Bridge Test were based on these hands. South—SPADES, Q, 10, 5, 7; HEARTS, K, J, 5; DIAMONDS. A. Q, 9, 6; CLUBS, A, 9. North—SPADKS. A, J, 8, 5; HEARTS, 9, 8; DIAMONDS, K, J, 10: CLUBS, K. J, 10, 2. South Is the Declarer and the contract at Auction is one No Trump; at.Con- tract, three No Trumps. To the first trick West leads the C of'Hearts, Dummy plays the S, Eatt the 10, and South wins with the Jack. The Questions are: 3. Which suit should South lead to trick 2 and In which hand should that trick be won? 4. Which card should be led to trick 3. and which card should be played from the other of Declarer's hands on it, supposing the intervening adversary plays small? Mr. Work will give the corrcd answers to these questions during his sixth Radio Game, and tell yot how to rale yourself as a Bridge player by the number of correc solutions you achieve. E. Z. Newsoin Jr.. son of the Rev. .nd Mrs. E. z. Newsom of this Ity, Is unofficially credited with stabllsliing an altitude record for ight planes at Little Roek yesterday.

'West, alter t;vo intervening passes. Mr. Lenz. South, passed; Mrs Chubb, West, went to three Spad-s hoping to get a free double of fsur Hearts; Mrs. Munce. North said four Clubs; Mr. Herter. East, passed. Mr. Lcnz, South, went to four Hearts,, as his partner fully exp?ct- ed he would; Mrs. Chubb, West doubled; and ail passed. Mrs. Chubb, West, opened the play by leading the 4 cf Species not expecting to take any 3p a ^ tricks, in view ol her 'partner's ominous silence, bu: because to lead uny other suit would have been worse. Mrs. Munce. North, spread her hand for Dummy, and Mr. Lenz played from it the Queen of Spaces Mr. Herter, East, played the DauV •and Mr. Lenz, Sculh, the 5. At trick two Mr. Ixmz led Duni- i my's Deuce of Clubs, to establish that suit in Dummy, since Dummy lacked enough trumps to enabl- Wm to ruff all the losing cards he held In the closed hand. East p!av- ed the Trey, Declarer the Qii« n and Mrs. Chubb, West, was f-rced' to win wilh Ihe Ace. Mrs. Chubb I then led the Trey of Spades, as -me reaiiwd she must use every possible means'-lb take entry cords from Dummy, to keep Declarer from running the Clubs. Dummy won with the Ace of Spades; Ea«t play ed the 7; Declarer ths-6. Declarer next led Dummy's Kine ' of Clubs; East played Ihe 6- DC- i clarer discarded the 8 of Spadcv ' Mrs. Chubb ruffed with the 4 of ; Hearts. Mrs. Chubb was then in tro-jbie for a lead. She dared not lead Diamonds away from her double tcnacc with no Diamonds In Dummy. She was practically certain from .(he bidding that Declarer held the King, while her own bidding must have shown him that she held the Ace. She knew that if she led the Queen or 10 of Diamonds Mr. Lenz wontrl win the trick in his own. hand, discarding Police Clash With Students at Havana HAVANA, Dec. 3 (UP)— Polio Biitl students of the University "o Havana clashed when the university reopened for regis tralions.
