You could see self-reliance in the set of his shoulders -- and perhaps also in his partner's bilious face. The trouble with being self- reliant at the bridge table is that it plays hob with your partner. The poor fellow goes to great trouble to make the right bid or the right play, only to discover that nobody is listening lo him. In this case East took the trouble to indicate a good opening lead by doubling two clubs. When North later bid two nolrump, it became clear that a club opening lead would come through strength. Not Listening But West wasn't listening. He squared his shoulders and led the king of spades. This made life easy for south. He won and returned a spade. West stepped up with the jack of spades and shifted, too late, to the five of clubs. South could play low from dummy, win any return and lead another spade toward dummy to set up the ten of spades as his ninth trick. Dally Question Partner opens with one spade, and the next player passes. You hold: Spade 10752 heart 854 diamond AJ4 club A109. What do you say? Answer: Bid two spades. You have the high cards for a stronger response but your distribution is too poor for anything more encouraging.

Mrs. Spomer remained very active in the club until December, 1941, when her husband, then county clerk and recorder, died and she was appointed to fill that office, an office she held 32 years, until her unexpected death. Mrs. Spomer was highly regarded on the national scene in affairs pertaining to clerks and recorders. In 1970, she was responsible for the formation of the International Association of Clerks, Recorders and Election Officials, and was president of this organization at the time of her death in December, 1973. The club's membership went from one, who had an innovative idea, to 326 at one lime. Other clubs were formed from this club in 1951 -- The North Weld and South Weld Republican Women's Clubs, and the original organization became known as the Greeley Republican Women's Club. They had noon, afternoon and evening meetings. On one occasion in December, 1952, 197 women attended a salad luncheon. Programs have covered a wide range of guests from the governor of Colorado, to local public officials -- from topics on education and government to music and fashion shows. In conclusion, Mrs. Shehee said, "After all my research and study, I can assure you, that our club has a reputation and a name that it can be proud of. Not much has really changed through the years. We have continued to grow and to work as good Republican women should fur our cause." Past presidents are named under the accompanying picture. Mrs. Shehee went on to say concerning Mrs. Spomer, the first president, "Weoweher a great deal of gratitude, and perhaps all of you, in your own way, will remember her." The next meeting of the Greeley Republican Women's Club will be at 12:45 p.m. Monday, April 5, at the First United Methodist Church, where nursery facilities will be available. They will form a caravan of cars for a home tour, with dessert and a short business meeting at the last home visited. Both transportation and nursery care are available by calling 352-7963..
