Ten - Blytheville (Ark.) Courier News - Friday, Hay IT, W. D. WALLEY, machine shop student at Cotton Boll Technical School at Burdette didn't get ulcers from worrying about constructing of what machinists call a sign plate, but h« did get first place in a statewide contest for vocational machine shops sponsored by the Wilkie Brothers Foundation, Joe Goad, his instructor, reported. Walley spent 79% man hours and used ?10 worth of materials to construct the plate, used to measure angles with precision, which in industrial machine shops would be worth about $800.

First, make sure that you and your partner are in complete agreement about it. Next, use it in response to no-trump opening bids only. The third bit is that you do not use it if second hand has acted over your partner's no-trump. North's two heart bid showed at least five spades and South dutifully bid two spades in reply to the transfer. North's second round jump to three no-trump said, "Partner, I have already shown you that I hold five spades. Now 1 want you to know that my hand is suitable for play at no-trump game as well as in spades." South's decision to place the contract in spades was a good one. He only held two spades but they were very good cards and South had opened one no- trump without a stopper in dia monds. Playing at four spades, South won the diamond opening and went right after trumps. He hac to lose the ace of spades ant two diamonds but the rest o the tricks were his. Three no trump would have gone down because West would cash four diamond tricks. It is interesting to note tha without a diamond opening the North-South cards would have produced 11 tricks at either no- trump or spades and if diamonds had broken 4-3, no leac would have beaten three no- trump. This takes nothing from South's fine decision. Bitter experience has taught us that il there is one opening lead to beat one of our unsound contracts, our opponents have a mean habit of making it.

The Binocular-Camera Set "Watching: It's for the Birds By JIM CROSSLEY Phe bird watchers — there's a augh. Their idea of having fun, Sitting on a hillside under the sky, . . Sensing the trees and feeling the sun, Watching the birds who nest and fly, Watching the castle clouds go by, Watching the flowers, watching the bee, When they could be sitting at home with a beer. Watching TV. Those are the words of Malvina Reynolds in an article in ;he January Natural History Vfagazine. Malvina is the girl who made the more sensitive among us shrivel inside with a song she composed, "Little Boxes." If she rails at "ticky tacky" it is only to be expected that she opens her heart to the natural world. And so do thousands of others who are out trudging park and country trails this ;ime of year, cricks in their necks from inspecting anything hat flies. '. i These people they call bird watchers aren't fooling anyone who has seen them in the field. In a real sense, they are the; mold of our modern-day hunter. Adapted to their time, they carry in them the lore of the past. - . • | They learn to stalk and am-. jush, they have the hunter's latience and their keen minds are computers filled with facts about the habits of their prey., Their habitat Is the outdoors and the wild creatures are their friend - adversaries. They vary only from the how- and-arrow forest people or the long - rifled woodsman in their weapons. Hunting, their style, is done with a pair of binoculars, a camera and a field record book. Birders are also kin to the poker player who is always hoping for four aces and the collector who seeks out a sample of every American coin, for instance. There are 807 officially listed species of birds in North America. Our modern hunter i aims at the impossible goal of sighting and recording all of them in his lifetime. All the while he is pursuing a healthy, active hobby in his natural environment, the outdoors. Age is no factor. It is a great way to find camaraderie for the elderly. The young can develop a valuable expertise. There's nothing complicated about it. Hunt anywhere. A group in New York City goes out during lunch hour. Incidentally, it's a great city for spotting rare species. The easy way to become involved is to accompany one of the nature walks open to the public, then locate and join a going club. To- tackle it. alone you'll need a book, then you match up each unfamiliar species with the pictures and description in the book. PHOTOGRAPHY OFFERS the challenge for bird watchers and is demanding because it involves blinds. Roger Tory. Peterson's "Field •Guide to the. Birds" seems the most preferred though t h ere are other good ones. A librarian can show you some as the first step to buying one. There's one key secret. Birds are like' fish. There are hot spots they frequent and other locations where hunting time is wasted. That's why joining a club is advantageous. Binoculars are essential. They are your gun. The 7x,T type is a favorite, a compro mise between light - gatherin power and magnification. Too much of the latter and holding a pair on target is difficult and tiring. Telescopes need tripods but are good for longer distances. There are eight million fortunate people in our country whose lives have been made more fun Srough this hunting game. One of them put it in this :apsule: "If you take up birds 35 a hobby, you will have few 'ull moments for the rest of 3ur life. Whenever time hangs .avy you can watch for birds." Family Planning: Pakistani Problem By JOE MCGOWAN JR. ! Associated Press Writer LAHORE, Pakistan (AP) — A visitor to a government minis- fir's home or office in Pakistan s likely to be served tea in a cup bearing a small circular seal showing a mother and two children. That same seal is showing up all over the country—on billboards, on the back of municipal buses, on car bumpers and village walls. It is the symbol of Pakistan's 'amily planning program, a desperate drive to reduce this country's birth rate from 50 to 40 per thousand. "We are about one-half way to our goal," says Dr. Willard Boynton, chief health officer for he U.S. Agency for International Development in Pakistan. Al- tlrough his responsibility encompasses many health problems, Boynlon has found himself deeply involved in the family planning program. "The country has a 50 per thousand birth rate and a 20 per thousand death rate, for a net growth of 3 per cent," he says. "There are 125 million people in East and West Pakistan today and a 3 per cent growth rate would double the population in the next 23 years." "By 1970 the Pakistan government wants to reduce the birth rate to 40. But at the same time, medical advances may drop the death rate to 15. This would give a 2% per cent growth rate."" Boynton said it is estimated Pakistan has 20 million fertile couples: "If you got five million practicing family planning, and News Briefs ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) A wild timber wolf, the first to be seen in New York State since horse and buggy days, has been identified by the State Conservation Department. The wolf, which weighed 84 pounds and measured 71 inches, was struck and killed by a car along a highway in the lower Adirondack Mountains. The agency said it might have escaped from a zoo or game farm. PORTLAND, Maine (AP) Some 250 tons of Norwegian sardines were imported here recently although Maine is the nation's largest exporter of sardines. "We haven't been able to depend on the sardine supply in Maine," a spokesman for the importer said, "our demand for sardines has been increasing each year, but the supply from Maine has been erratic." NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (AP) — A bulletproof vest of boron carbide that would stop a .30- caliber bullet has been announced by officials of the Car- borundum Co. They said new methods of producing boron carbide—a tough, lightweight ceramic—allowed them to develop a vest that was light, flexible and relatively low in cost. BOSTON (AP) — The executive director of the governor's Highway Safety Committee says it's men, not women, who have the most accidents. James J. Stratford Jr. told the legislative Committee on Public Safety that in 1963 women who completed driver education programs in Massachusetts had no injury claims. Men, on the other hand, submitted between 7.7 and 20 claims for every 100 cars insured. In 1966, he said, accidents caused by women drivers were one-third to one-half the number caused by men. it is assumed there is 70 per cent effectiveness, you would meet the goal.". Today it is estimated that Pakistan has 2.2 million couples practicing family planning. Boynton says 700,000 women are using the ultra-uterine contraceptive device known as the loop. About 30,000 persons per month are undergoing vasectp- mies or tubectomies and the remainder are using conventional contraceptives. A major step was the training of family planning visitors, women who have no higher education but who are given a special one-year course in the insertion of loops. "There were not enough trained doctors and if we had had to wait, the program would have failed," Boynton says. "Today we have, about 1,000 'visitors' and 300 to 400 more are being trained every year." NO NATIVES VOTED FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) No native Kentuckian voted in Kentucky's first election in 1792. The minimum voting age was 21 and settlement of the state began in 1776 — which meant that no native Kentuckian was old enough to vote.
