Pkont HE 7-94IS Opec Monday and Friday Ertningi Retiring Assessor Tells Taxing Job Mrs. Grace Simpson L r T In Anila lorlM Decked out in a bright green corsage--made, appropriately, of 20 one-dollar bills--Mrs. Grace Simpson put in her last day of 32 yearj of work Friday with the Loj Angeles County Assessor's office. Mrs. Simpson, I2S Hermosa Ave., who celebrated her 70th birthday March 10, began working in the Long Beach branch office of the county assessor in 1931. "In those days, we assessed automobiles as well as household furnishings--and collected the taxes right on the spot if the taxpayer was home," she recalled. For 17 years, Mrs. Simpson was a deputy assessor, assigned to value household furniture. When she started, she admitted Friday, she "didn't know the first thing about assessing anything." "SO I THOUGHT I'd pick a small house to start with," she said. Unfortunately, the owner also c-tmed a bunch of bungalow courts and whipped out "a whole stack of tax bills." "I got so flustered. I didn't remember what form was what." confessed Mrs. Simpson. "Luckily, the lady suddenly decided she didn't have all of her bills, so I said, very cooly. That's quite all right. 111 come back another day.'" "I went right back to the office to quit, but fortunately, my supervisor talked me out of it." Mrs. Simpson lives with her husband, a retired merchant. -I/ KHA MASTEWON- IT WAS one of those re-' Uxed. lovely luncheon dates women savor when Gloria lacoboni e n t e r t a i n e d Wednesday for her outgoing board members of Lakewood Aid League. There was enough wit floating throcgh the conversation (as usual) to male It fun and enough work done to make the day gratifying.

North jumps to three no-trump and South knows that North holds nine to 14 high card points, a five or six card spade suit and no singleton or void- In spite of weakness in hearts. South decides that with his 4-3-3-3 distribution a no-trump contract is safer and passes. West opens the three of clubs and South has nine of the easiest tricks one can imagine. He will probably make 10 before he gets through and he has no contract worries. · · · · IF NORTH plays four spades, a jack of hearts opening by East will almost surely defeat the contract. If South plays four spades he can be beaten by double dummy defense although the chances are that he will make the contract. In any event the JTB has made it easy for South to make a game.
