. Blyttievllle (Ark.) Courier,News - Friday, April II, MW » P»gi ««• JACOBY ON BRIDG1 The previous four columns have been written by James Jacoby to describe his new team. Today Jim goes one step further by asking his teammate Bobby Wolff to write about his favorite hand of all time. Bobby writes, "I usually get into the bidding with .two aces and five spades, but the unfavorable vulnerability and maybe a sudden burst of caution caused me to pass over South's heart opening. After North's three heart and South's four heart calls I expected to lead against a routine game contract w h e n "m u c h to my surprise North cue bid both diamonds and clubs and thereby carried South to a heart slam. "It isn't often that I find myself on lead against a slam with two aces. It is even less frequent for me to decide not to lead either of them. "Fortunately the bidding had proceeded slowly so that I had time to think over my lead While South 'was puzzling over his partner's six club call. It wasn't hard to decide against [the club lead. North clearly had I shown that he did not have any :lubs. It also seemed pointless to lead a red card. The suit to attack was spades.

NEW YORK (AP) — Ameri-! ed at the beginning and end of can business firms spend millions of dollars each year hiring efficiency experts to make their off ices. run. more smoothly and productively. These so-called experts make complicated tune and motion studies and' diagrams on how the office can be laid out, ideally, , to i get the work- done.better and more quickly. In-many cases it's all a, big laugh to the white collar peons involved, and-a waste of the management's -own. time and motion..'For the. efficiency experts-overlook; the'key factor— the people involved. .. "You can't make people .work harder just by moving them around like they were pieces in a jigsaw puzzle," remarked a friend of mine, Jim Dodder. "For'half what an efficiency expert charges, I could tell my boss easily how to double our office output." As Jim has soldiered successfully for 30 years on the same job, his opinion seemed worth listening to. "How would you do it, Jim?" "By trickery and paying attention to .the human, factor." "How's that, Jim?" '... "Well, to start with, I'd forget all about those time and motion studies. In any office, the staff is divided into two groups— those who talk about their work, and those-who actually do the work. "The; first step to take is to move the desks of the talkers into one-corner of the room, and the real workers into another corner. That, would keep the drones from annoying them." "Anything else, Jim?" "'Sure;..Lots more. Most of the the day , and during . coffee breaks. "The ordinary supposed to operate between 9 a.m. and. 5:30 p.m. That's a joke. Most employes don't limp in un- tU'9:'15 and after 5:15 they don't do anything but go to the powder room or watch the clock." "The'way to beat;that is to have, the mbrning coffee break start promptly at 9 a.m. with, a free cup of Java on every em- ploye's desk. You .start, the afternoon break at 5:15 on the dot by distributing to each'desk another free cup of coffee or martini—as the employe desires." :"What about employe morale, Jim? Any suggestions about how to. improve that?" "Certainly,", said Jim. "Most bosses think the : hired hands spend most of the day griping about the low pay. That's not really true. .Most employes know they are never going to get rich working in an office—or they are out of their pea-shelling minds if they don't. ' ', "What really, drives them off their rockers is .the fact that the washroom is always running out of towels, the pencil sharpeners are.too dull, the water coolers are usually out of order and there are too few meatballs in the spaghetti 'served in the company lunchroom. "Any personnel .director could keep a.happy shop if he himself did nothing but carry towels to the washroom, sharpen the pencil sharpeners once a month, check the water coolers twice a day and see there are-enough meatballs in the spaghetti." .

Today's highlight in history: On this date in 1775, the American Revolution began with the battles of Lexington and Concord. On this date: In 1782, Holland recognized toe independence of the American colonies. In 1783, eight years- after the Battle of Lexington, Congress announced the end of the Revolutionary War. In 1824, the English poet, Lord Byron, died in Greece in the fight for Greek independence. In 1865, funeral services for Abraham Lincoln were held in the East Room of the White House. -••-.•• , In 1892, Charles E. Duryea of Springfield, Mass., successfully operated the, first practical gas- days. How would you cure that, Jim?" "That's simply—by appealing to human greed," replied Jim. "By holding lottery each Monday, and Friday morning among all the , workers who were present, and giving a $100 prize to the winner. No guy would stay home with a hangover or try to add another day to his weekend if he had a chance to win $100."
