TEN EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND; MD., TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 1955 Dial PA-2-4600 for a WANT AD Taker Ike Appoints Tax Collector : A fire alarm apparently called in to Central Fire Station by a Halloween prankster is the type call which can result in serious personal injury or property dam- pge as' firemen rush to the scene, Department officials said today. One fireman among those who responded to such a call yesterday suspected" the prank when the youngster calling was heard laughing and talking with other children in the background. South End firemen, at the re- fluestr of the girl, went to Franks Lane ; to check the blaze but were caable to locate it. Chief Virgil A. Parker notified police of the incident and they in turn sent an officer to an address given by the caller. When questioned the girl said she saw a group of boys building a fire and notified firemen. The fire reportedly was stamped out by the boys when they heard the siren of the approaching fire engine. A number of Halloween-type prankster calls have been received by the fire department in- the past couple of days. Firemen stress the seriousness of such a type of call in that individuals can be injured or property damage caused.

They carried poles which they used to prod cattle aack to their feet when they laid down or fell. They ; thus were known as cowpunchers, a term which cowboys often are erroneously called. Cowboys, Barry says, always have been fellows, who herd cattle on the range. Barry, who plans to Vetire soon, was born in. the sandhills of Grayson County, Texas.

West opened the ace, of clubs and continued with a low club, South winning with the queen. Declarer was tempted to draw three rounds of trumps, but he had the good sense to stop after two rounds in order to try a heart finesse. When East won with the queen of hearts he had no way to' defeat the' contract if South found the best line of play. At best, East could give declarer a problem, but that turned out to be good enough. East took the ace of diamonds and then led the queen of diamonds, forcing dummy to ruff. It was .now possible for South to make the contract by leading dummy's last trump to his own hand and trying a second heart finesse. If this lost, however, the opponents would surely cash at least one diamond trick, South feared, and he would be set two or three tricks. Faced with this danger. South decided not to lead the last trump from dummy. Instead, he "took the ace of hearts and ruffed a heart, hoping that the king would fall. This plan didn't work, and South wound up down two anyway. Notice how easy everything would have been if East had tame- n thejly returned a trump after tak- Before ing the queen of hearts and one "The Phoenix," student newspaper course, at Swarthmore and last summer was a reporter for The Cumberland News.
