lO SO a THE PHILADELPHIA INOUJKER. SUNDAY MORNING. JULY 215. 1044 Nation's Bridge Experts to For Summer Nationals in By Bennett B rid at Expert bridge players from all sections of the country uill eather at the Astor Hotel in New York City, next ueek to- take part in the Summer National tournament of the American Contract Bridge League. Although the attendance will be somewhat affected by the difficulties of wartime transportation. it is expected that most of the top ranking players will be able to compete. The whole week, July 31 to Aug. 6. will be devoted to the play of five national and two amateur championship events, interspersed with a number of minor tournaments. The game for Mixed Teams of Four is the first scheduled event, to be played on Monday and Tuesday afternoons. The Men's and Women's Pair events will be contested, Eirr.ultaneou.sly, on Monday and Tuesday evenings and Wednesday afternoon, and the Master Team of Four game will be played in five sessions on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings. The event for Master Pairs will take place on Thursday, Friday, Saturday end Sunday afternoons. The President Pair game, for non-masters, will be played on Friday evening and Saturday afternoon and evening, while the Amateur Teams of Four will see action on Sunday afternoon and evening. SAFE AND SURE The first consideration in playing for a game at no-trump is the accumulation of nine tricks, and the most certain .route should be traversed in this attempt. It should be remembered, however, that an apparently obvious and expeditious path does not necessarily indicate stability, and that some tricks that peera to be assured may not materialize in the actual play. It was only by the application of a principle of safety that South made a game with these cards. North end South vulnerable. South dealer. Ea?t and West 60 part score. NORTH A J 6 2 vj AQ42 O Q 6 3 A K76 WEST EAST K10 A 9 7 5 4 J 10 9 6 5 y K o JU K 85 0 9 7 4 Q J 3 A 9 3 4 2 SOUTH A AQ8 y 8 7 3 O A J 10 2 A A 10 5 The bidding: South INT. 2NT. Pass Hut Pass North Dbl. 3 NT. East Pass Pass West's Irrational overcall of two hearts, probably induced by the part score, could have been heavily penal-izt-d. In fact. North was quick to insert a profit-taking double, but South, eacer to score the rubber Fame, saved West much embarrass ment bv going on with the no- trump. In the play. West led the jack of hearts and South started to count up to nine. He could win two spades, three diamonds, two clubs and two hearts, assuming that West held the king of hearts, as his bid indicated, and that a finesse of the heart queen would be successful. But had South taken an immediate heart finesse he would have lost the game. East would win with the heart king, that West was supposed to hold, and return a spade, which West would win with the king when South finessed. Now the ten of hearts would drive Chess and By Isaac Ash Men have no monopoly on chess in the S'vtet Union. The game has won great popularity among Soviet women and thou-sahis have achieved a high standard of p, This is true of all parts of the roun-t-v" from Sakhalin Island in the north to Central Asia, where only a quarter of a rer.iurv ago the women were veiled.

Until there is an international woman's tournament we naturally cannot judge their p.av.r.g merits, but we do know of the high :anc:r.e of Vera Menchik of England, who 1 r ears has been in the first rank.

Fortunately, South did not play the c ueen of hearts at the first trick. He p layed the two. Although he was just about ninety-nine percent sure that the heart finesse would win, theru was no good reason to take the finesse at once. It was barely possible that East might hold the lone king of hearts and would capture the queen if it were played. A heart trick must be lost at some time and the .safety play was to lose it right away and find out the size of East's one heart. West would hardly be likely to overcall in hearts with less than five cards in the suit, so East was marked with not more than one heart. After winning with the king of hearts, East shifted to a spade, South finessed and West's king won. Heaits were continued, the queen played from dummy, and the declar er, v ith a double stopper in hearts, had plenty of time to dispose of the diamond king and set up his nine tricks. H;.d West actually held the king of hearts, as the declarer antici pated, in addition to the same high cards in the other suits, the play would have been interesting. The timiig would be changed, but Sout h could make his game with the aid if an end-play. TOl KXAMEXTS HI THERINGTON TROPHY (1st ses sion i . 1. Mrs. loung-Mrs. Axon, 170; Mis.

She realizes that the way to the public heart is through the public eye. "The time I'm going to start worrying about cameras, the youthful veteran of stage and screen says, "is the day the photographers don't ask me to get into the picture." Since coming out of her voluntary retirement of three years ago, the farmerette-actress wife of Sergeant Sidney Kingsley, Pulitzer prize-winning playwright of "Men in White," has been gathering steam again in her theatrical career. After quitting the farm, when her soldier-husband went into the army, Madge came to Bucks County Playhouse during its first Philadelphia season to play the Gertrude Lawrence role in "Sky lark." From that she went right back to Broadway to appear in a play that Sergeant Kingsley finished in between his GI chores, "The Patriots," which the Playwrights Company produced. She remained with that until an attack of whooping cough rorced her to leave just before it went on the road. Began Early Madge's real camera career began as a commercial photographer's model when she was just two. A year later she was in films and at the advanced age of four she had already become a star. Six years after that, she was forced to "retire" from the films. She was in the gawky stage. Her Introduction to the Broadway stage was made in the George Kelly play. "Daisy Mayme." At 20, she returned to Hollywood and again became a star through the medium of such pictures as "David Copper-field," 'Dinner at Night" and "The Greeks Had a Word for It."

Rarin' to Go Louise Allbritton, co-star of Unl-versal's "San Diego, I Love You," recently spent thrfe months overseas entertaining service men In camps and hospitals in the European theater of war. Upon her return to the States, Miss Allbritton was vehement in what she thought about the attitude of numerous civilians. As Louise expressed it, "I got up on a soap-box as soon as I returned and said all I felt. Now I have calmed down a bit. It can't quite be explained what happens to any girl who goes out there and talks to the boys." Continuing, she told of the wonderful attitude of the boys and the spirit and faith they had in the "good old U. S. A." In fact, so enthused was Louise over the trip that she intends to do it again as soon as she has finished another picture. And she doesn't care where they send her "Just as long as it's overseas somewhere to entertain the boys!" Star Xh4 AIR-CONDITIONED HIO HITS I rvay rrancis. Carole Landii Martha Raye.
