Without fanfare they venture on Hie high seas on rafts of logs propelled by a flimsy cotton sail. Their voyages last for two or three days--and often longer --far out of sight of land. A Jangada Is made without a screw or nail from four to six 24-foot balsa logs lied together by Iwo smaller logs driven through the others at right angles. Coarse, homemade fiber ropes Iiold the logs together. A triangular cotton sail billows out from j single mast. The superstructure consists of a couple of boards and pieces of »Ucks tied together In the shape of a bench on which Uie crew, varying from two to four men, can take turns resting. Teas ol thousands on that 2,000 mile bulging coastline from Bahla to the Amazon have no other livelihood than pluck-, ing fish from the sea with their primitive nets and lines, while they steer with their hand-hewn rudder.

Helen knew that her husband was not accustomed to making bad plays at any time. T h e why did he lead a club? He wanted to get her on lead. Why? So she could lead a spade through declarer!

She wasn't at all proud of her bid, but as she pointed out she wanted to deprive fccr opponents ol the chance to bid spades easily. The best South could do was to try if; two diamonds. North passed and proceeded to make four odd for a score of 130. At the other table East merely overcalied with one heart. This did not bo'her South at all. He bid one spade and the bidding proceeded quickly to four spades. South made ten tricks for plus 620 and a net gain of 490 points or ten IMF's.'
