In Good Old Summertime, Men Play It Smart Here Ah, .BlythevtHe, where the sttrn- mers are hot and humid and the men. through custom of pretty long standing, make the sensible most of it. We have reference to the, fact that in our city's early warm months, sport shirts, like young love, come to the lore. This is in contrast to many other towns, smaller and larger, where the white collar worker comee ( home with a battleship gray piece of broedeloth about hit neck. To whit group of br?.ve pioneers we owe this tradition is not quite c!e?.r. But it seems as if menfolks hereabouts literally rolled up their sleeves, pulled off their neckwear and really got down to work during the war. Alter they had tried it awhile, they evidently decided to buy shirts with no alseves et all for Bummer months wear. Xow it isn't unuaualto see even the more staid membeia bf our community, yea, eved Ui« local barristers, waaiderhig happily about in comfortable open-necked shirts. As for the women — well, they've had this summer clothing angle figured out for years. The comfortable, filmy garments that are available to them would scarcely con.sUtiile an hors d'oeuvre for an under-age moth. The males still have some catching up 1o do, but take heart, men, we've uome a long way. Massachusetts 'Fair Test' Put Taft on Defensive In advance of the Massachusetts primary. Senator Taft declared it would be a "fair test." There is considerable reason to believe it. was jusl that, and the result demonstrated that General Eisenhower was the overwhelming: choice of those who cast Republican ballots. The general's lotal. in excess of 245,000 votes, was the largest write-in ever recorded by any candid a is anv- where. It surpassed the peak established only a week before by Taft in Pennsylvania—173,000. The factors which made Massachusetts a reasonably fair Insl were these: Neither Tafi nor Kisenhowrr was on the ballot. Both had to be written in. Neither candidate had 1 the brnpt'it. of an incumbent state administration which could throw powerful strength one way or the other. An active campaign was mad? mi behalf of hoth men. Tafl, carried his own case tn the MassachmeHs votprs, «nd Eisenhower's was borne by a number of the leading figure? in his camp. Eisenhower had Ihe advantages that went with the support of both AY, KAY 9, 195J Massachusetts »«n»tors — Lodge, his campaign manager, and Saltonsta!!. But several prominent Republicans in ths state favored Taft. This is the balanced part oi the pit- tine. But despite the fact that Taft and a lot of others considered the equalizing: factors predominant, it is only proper to point out one major disadvantage the senator confronted. Massachusetts, like other eastern seaboard states, has a heavy tilt toward the internation- alise viewpoint. And this whole region has not proved top Taft territory. Eisenhower earlier had triumphed in New Hampshire, New Jersey, New "York and Wain, and had rolled up a big popular victory in .Pennsylvania oven though not collecting that state's delegates (they are largely uncommitted). As this was Taft's drawback in the cast, so it was Eisenhower'n that mid- western otates like Nebraska and Illin- oii p.re stronghold:] of the isolationist feeling. ' In the cud, however, Eisenhower's Massachusetts victory should not be minimized. For his obvious strength in the east cannot be overlooked by a party which needs a tremendous pile-up of electoral votes next November to balance the inevitable southern and southwestern backlog the Democrats can command. T h e Massachusetts result pushes Taft into something of a defensive position. It now remains to be seen whether by his late-season performance in Ohio, West Virginia and South Dakota he can regain an offensive, posture. Laugh's on Dad Harry Truman has bowed out, but daughter Margaret >.a?. decided to run for another term. Encouraged by a radio-TV network, she has signed a nice fat contract for more singing and acting performances next year. Since Margaret is no Dorothy Kira- ten and can hardly be said to be bucking for an Academy award, the move has puxzling aspects. Maybe they figure joken aboui her daddy will be goorl for a year or two even after he becomes an "ex."

Or would you say that South had 2 very close decision to make? Or would you 3ey that South •vronj and just got '*'hat was coming to him?" I think South was' wrong, but T also think he was slightly unlucl'y. Every tournament player bears the scars of just such hands, so I sympathise with the poor fellow. For the benefit of non-tourna ment players, let me make It clear. There is no problem at rubber bridge. You go up with the ace of diamonds, take the tace of spades, ruff a spade, get back v;ith the ace of clubs, rutf out all the spades, draw trumps, and eventually give up. one diamond. In a match-point, tournament, you don't want to make 12 tricks if everybody else hp,3 bid tha smlll slam met la gains to make 13 tricks. In thai case you will get no points even though you make your small slam contract. The important point is, however, ihat South should feel very well pleased with his slam contract. The chances are that the slam -will not be bid at about half of t h e tables. South should expect a good score if he. merely makes his slam, regrardless of the extra "trick. The general principle is that you play safe for yonr contract when you're in a very good snot. It isn't necessary to play every hand wide open. . . . set for a comeback via a. telefilm, "The Doctor Prescribes." 15 Yearn Ago In Blytheriile — The Steamer Capitol, with ths Dixie Cotton Pickers aboard will be putting in at Caruthersville nsxt week.
