The 1904 Knox waterless shown in the accompanying picture, really recreates a scene of long ago as three men and a boy give a good push while the driver registers agonizing concern. The lad in the "frdnt" seat,- however, seems to have everything under control. The photo, made in 1970, shows many of the cars as they were about to depart on t the 1970 tour. In just a matter of ' a few weeks, July 24, hundreds' of the best restored cars in the country . again will gather in Hamilton-Fairfield for the 17th annual Anticjue and Classic Car festival and the Hamilton-Fairfield grand tour. The annual meet brings together cars of many makes and descriptions and favorites such as Hudson, Essex, Jewett, Mar-mon, Steams-Knight, Stutz, Duesenberg,, Lexington, Packard, .Pierce Arrow and., many others .will be on exhibition, first Bridge ' CHICAGO (UPI) Nobody knows for sure how the game got its name or who played the first hand, but this is approximately the diamond jubilee of the popularization of bridge. Since about 1896, according to Encyclopaedia Britannica, bridge, whist, auction bridge, and contract bridge have successively been the principal intellectual card games of the English-speaking countries. " . -: -J: The game, played in the most fashionable settings on each" side of the Atlantic, had a humble ancestry. It derived from whist, a game played by the"lower classes" in 16th-century England. Two centuries later, whist was taken up by gentlemen playing in London coffeehouses, especially after Edmond Hoyle published a treatise on it in 1742. The game, played "according to Hoyle," soon spread to America. From whist came bridge. And upon its introduction to New York in 1893 and to London in 1894, bridge almost immediately supplanted whist in the card rooms of men's clubs. Within a couple of years it became the "h" game for fashionable mixed gatherings also. ' The earliest form of bridge itself gave way to auction bridge, which was introduced in England in about 1904 and became, from 1907 to 1928, the most universally popular card game ever known. Auction bridge had at least 15 million adherents when, in 1930 it became secondary, to contract bridge. The total number of contract bridge player&has been estimated at 50 million, at least half of them in the United States. The literature of the game comprises more than 9,000 volumes. About 1 million books on bridge are sold each year. Periodicals on bridge have beet published lnrl? .language, , , , lexaci atfons reservations at the assembly area on West Main street and later at Fairfield, Ohio, and finally around . Hamilton's ..picturesque old -Courthouse which has seen them all come and go! -- The scenic tour route along the Great "Miami "river and through the attractive cities of Hamilton and Fairfield afford unlimited viewing area to witness the cars in motion. All car owners anywhere in the - world are invited to participate in the grand tour if their cars were made in 1942 or an earlier date. Cars 1929 and older are considered to be antique, classic cars are the great machine' j chock At Spring Mill Grisson MITCHELL The new Virgil ..I. - Grissom .state memorial at Spring Mill state park will be .2 1 For You This W All cven;m4:time8rV:in;'tni8$ecfi&n' are ms accurate as possible. prior 'to each Greek's deadline, Tues- . day before Saturday pubfictioh.'

Window Shades NEW YORK (UPI) Something very simple helps to cut fuel consumption on the home JronL .And fuel bills. .. -. "The something simple?-Window shades. The tips is based on a- study made by the Armour Research Foundation during World War; II. The study showed ' that' ' window " shades offer valuable - dividends in insulation. ' : Their -reflecting qualities, especially , in white . 7 or . light colors, keep out the heat in warm weather, reducing the ' load on the. air conditioner. Conversely, according to the report, a fuel saving in cold , weather can be jealized by the proper use of shades. In either case, the savings may. be as much as 15 to 20 per cent and, with some shade cloths such as , room-darkeners, even more. Pulling down the shades all the way as darkness approaches helps cut down on the amount of fuel it takes to heat v" Wi. . -- - .;n Help
