Your lA/ortn — Please For many years there lias lieen an'anti-evolution' law in Arkansas. In recent times the law has come in folk's share of critical comments. Despite tins the law has stuck arcl has not been revoked—unlike Tennessee which made the law invalid. Should Arkansas allow evolution — as a theory—to be taught in its schools? Read'what some of Blytheville's citizens think. "It don't think it should be taught. I don't believe in the theory of evolution. I believe in the creation account the way the Bible teaches it. I wouldn't want my kids taught that way."—Jack Webster, 408 S. 2nd, Blytheville. "It would he all right to teach it In school. Students could take the subject by their own election. The theory shouldn't be made a compulsory subject. It should be kept in mind that God was the creater." —Garry Skinner, 628 W. Main, Blytheville.

The hand is interesting for a number of reasons. The first one is that the four-heart contract was rather ambitious but hard to slay out of. Actually, Mrs. Schenken had a minimum heart raise and Mrs. Goldberg a minimum jump to game. Bca (Mrs. Howard) Schenken writes: "My sister, Mrs. Harold Goldberg of Gary, Ind., .was in New York lor a few days. I asked her what she would like to do and, strangely enough, her answer was, 'Play bridge.' It just happened that there was a duplicate game at the Cavendish Club and we played. Here is a top score that she got for making four hearts: "The defense started off with three diamond tricks. A spade was taken by declarer's ace, and it was up to her to make the rest of the tricks. She started by leading a heart to dummy's ace. West's play of the jack caused her to pause and reflect for some lime. Eventually she decided that it was a bona fide singleton, so her next play was to lead the nine of hearts and let it ride. After that, it was a simple matter to take dummy's ace.

Surely he would overcall, so that when the jack of hearts appeared Mrs. Goldberg was able to finesse with confidence. As for the club finesse and to bring in four club tricks.

There are many fillings in her front teeth but, as someone once told her, 'Don't worry about those fillings. If any man gets close enough to see them, he probably won't be interested in your teeth." , When MJ laughs, it's quite a different story, and it's no laughing matter.
