Ybur '.WU - P/ease Recently the state's Supreme Court ruled that Lynn Davis did not qualify as State Police Director. The court said Davis did not meet the 10-year residency requirement for the position. Immediately Gov. Wintnrop Rockefeller commented that new legislation would be introduced to allow Davis to assume the position of State Police Director. Should the law b* changed? "/ would certainly be In favor of seeing the law changed or revamps—not merely for the take of getting Lynn Davit back at police director but to keep from overlooking good qualified applicants for this po~ •ition." — Jay Maurice Williams, 903 N. Parkside, Blytheville. "I don't believe that they thould change the law for one individual. They wouldn't do it for you or me."—Chuck Burns, 2116 Henley, Blytheville. £•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Show Beat by Dick Kleiner HOLLYWOOD (NBA) thunder.

Eventually he concluded that his only chance to beat the spade game would be to find his partner with the queen of hearts. After that the rest was easy for Sam. He led the ten of hearts! The standard play from a long suit Is low, so why did Sam make (Ms lead? The an swer is that there are certain special combinations that call for an unusual lead and this was one of them. When Sam led the ten, declarer was etone cold dead, South could rise with dummy's ace, cover with the jack or duck, but he was going to lose two heart tricks come what might. Had Sam played the four of hearts, South could have played dummy's deuce and East would have been forced to play his queen. By DAVID POLING Since the future is an extension of the past, let us carefully note these events as highpoints in .the New Year! . 1 — Pope Paul VI will announce that, although many are asking, pleading, demanding changes in the Vatican's historic position on birth control, tradition prevails. No sweeping alterations. No allowances in the regulations concerning abor- tio.i. Further study required concerning the Pill.'Result: The average family will continue to make its own decisions^ With or without approval from Rome. 2 — The war in Vietnam will become the most, divisive issue in the .churches of America. The National Council of Churches will be at the forefront of this debate, provoking old enemies and enlarging the field of controversy. Officers of the council are fully aware of this but feel they must press for an end to the war and the beginning ot a negotiated peace settlement in Southeast Asia. 3 — Father James E. Groppi, the militant civil rights priest in Milwaukee, will succeed (by Easterjin securing a fairhous- ing bill in that city. Although Father Groppi receives about 25 telephone threats an hour, he has gained something else that guarantees Negro rights - the denomination in the country.

Somehow or other most any pair would land at the inferior spade game. No matter how well you bid, you can't actually be looking at your partner's card*. . . Of course, four spades would make most of the time. It doesn't require any peat && on the part of the declarer. He makes It unless Weil leads th* correct card at trick two. Unfortunately for North »nd South, old time expert Sam Fry held the West card* at New York's Regency Whist Club and Sam found that right c«rd. He opened the king of dub* as 'anyone would and received the discouraging deuce from nil partner. In his youth Sen wi way altogether. "I send them to you to be repaired, If they can be.
