Pi* * - EtrfwvCt (At*.) Orator Km - Monday, Aprfl t, CHINESE ART of Ivory carving has reached a high degree of perfection in Hong Kong, where more than 3,000 skilled workmen create figurines and even more complex designs, such as the concentric ball, top right, .containing up to 11 layers of ivory loosely placed inside each other. Using traditional tools, a craftsman, top left, may take several months to produce one article. A carving such as Hong Hai, top center, sells in Hong Kong for about S165, U.S. money. Several craftsmen combined their talents to produce the too-foot-long Chinese garden, above, carved from tin of an elenhant's tusk. By HAL BOYLE YORK (AP) - Keep, burdened with a preten- , tious humility, nor should the | average American ever let him- NEW ^_ _ stone comments of a pavement, se j t d egenera t e into meretriPlato: clous masochism. I am tired of the hangdog! American. The hangdog American is a The hangdog American is gei- I ting the bad habit of sticking out ,.-•.-. ,. ,.-, i his chin and then hitting it with ? U L!* 0 ^ V fLL n ^ Efillfc own fist. He is getting the bad habit of looking at himself in the mirror and breaking into self-pitying tears because the face he sees there isn't that of a universally accepted god. The hangdog American is in danger of losing the fierce independence and self-pride of his pioneering ancestors. He is not only capitulating to his carping on earth and feels hej has to apologize for his own existence. There is no longer much danger of the average American bragging himself to death. He is more likely lo wither on the vine from unnecessary guilt. It is hard today to name a thing that doesn't afflict the typical American with a sense of being in the wrong. If he is over 40, he feels guilty because he isn't younger. If he has children and can't give them everything they ask for, he feels lie is letting them down. If they turn out badly, he is sure it must be his fault, not theirs. He feels guilty if his wife has to wear a cloth coat instead of a fur one, or if the refrigerator in her kitchen is more than 10 years old. If the opera bores him, he feels he is a musically illiterate boob, because everyone is supposed to be cultured today and enjoy opera, whether he likes it or not. If he is 10 pounds overweight, he feels guilty because he reads that half the people in the world go hungry overnight. If he goes to war—and he does —he feels guilty because his enemies fight back and his unfaithful allies don't rush to his support. If he gives away billions to other lands—and he does—he feels guilty because his beneficiaries do not stun his ears with thsir applause. This cringing posture of the hangdog American is something relatively new to our national life. Never before did we insist or require that the rest of mankind love us; why should we now? Never before have we looked down upon ourselves, our conduct, or our motives; why should we now? Uncle Sam should never Jet himself become another Uriah critics—he js becoming his own worst critic by doubting or distrusting his own obvious virtues: courage, ingenuity, loyalty, generosity, idealism. That is the worst thing that can happen to any man—to lose faith in himself. And that is what is happening to the hangdog American. THEN SHE THOUGHT AGAIN CALCUTTA, India (AP) - A young couple ended their romance on their scheduled Wedding day in an argument over loyalty to Marxism, reported the Statesman. The story said the girl fled in tears after her fiance said he would die for Marxism "without question" but if asked to do the same for his wife "I would think twice."

The Home Ministry said the large numbers of civil servants who rush to nearby parks and lawns to play cards during lunch or tea breaks presented ian "undignified" appearance.

The six no-trump contract is eminently sound since in his hand and dummy's South has four spades, two hearts, three diamonds and three clubs in top cards. A rubber bridge player wouldn't worry much about an overtrick because he would be satisfied with scoring 190 below the line plus 500 for the rubber and 750 for the slam, but he might just as well go after the overtrick as a matter of technique." Oswald: "The basic play for the overtrick is to see if clubs break. If each opponent holds three clubs, South's fourth club becomes the 13th trick. If not, there must be some squeeze possibility since either dummy's fourth diamond or South's own third heart becomes a potential squeeze card." Jim: "That is the base of all squeezes. You can't make all the tricks without exerting pressure. You exert the pressure and the squeeze operates." Oswald: "This hand is sel I up as a simpie one-way squeeze against East. South wins the , heart opening and runs off four ' spade tricks. He throws a small heart from dummy. West lets a heart go also, as does East. Then South leads a second heart to his hand and East is squeezed. He has to throw away a club or a diamond and either discard gives South his 13th trick. Jim: "This band represents a three - suit squeeze situation. Take West's four of hearts and trade it for East's five of dia monds. Now the four spade leads and two heart leads won't bother East because he could only stop clubs anyway. West won't be bothered up to that point, but South will squeeze West when be leads out dummy's three top clubs. West will be forced to throw a diamond or his last heart. Either discard will give South the 13th trick.

Leach is concerned, the prewedding prank pulled by eight buddies was a case of bad casting. They held him down while one buddy, a hospital resident, rolled Leach into a full body cast from ankles to wrists. Then they propped him up through the sunroof of a small foreign car, drove him back to his apartment and left, him on the floor where two puppies took turns licking his face. The cast was removed the next morning just in time for Leach lo make the 9:30 a.m. ceremony and exchange vows with his bride. Every Homeowner needs it...
