Today the- question Is "How long will it be before the masses of bridge players throughout the country play nothing but contract?" It Is quite natural for the player who Is taking up -contract to become confused with the so-called •'systems." At the recent national championship tournament where the various experts of the country asst-mblcd lo competo ill the championship events, the. writer, was strongly impressed with the fact (hut every acknowledged authority nn the game was using EOine kind of a forcing bid. . It Is quite true that all men do lot think alike. Quoting from (he atest book ot my friend. Shepar'd G Barclay, he states that "an old n'dlnn chief In i peace pow-wow vith a neighboring tribe said, •Thanks be to the Great Spirit that nil men do not think alike—other- w*se all mon • would warit my squaw'." And so It Is in contract bridge—il is just ns well that all experts do not think alike—otherwise bridge would become a mechanical game. It has been generally accepted by ,11 of thc leading authorities that two and or.e-half high card tricks nre necessary for an opening bid of one, although one or two of the experts will opcii on two quick tricks' if their hand contains five probable tticts.
