McLaughlin today asked the Washington County grand jury to make recommenda- . lions, on whether additional patrolmen or special police training is needed' in Hagerstown and the county. "The court," he said, "is con cerned with the increasing number oi breaking and enterings and burglaries." Judge McLaughlin estimated that .70 per cent of the cases have not been solved. "Many feel pur rapidly growing community needs additional patrolmen and a county police force," he said..."Others are of the'opinion that additional funds should be provided for the special training of personnel in . criminal investigation." • He told the jurors, "It is my hope your contributions 1 can' be put into effect by the city and county governing bodies, and bring improvement to our percentages of: arrests.". :'• ; Speed Demons Taking Chances BY OSWALD JACOBY Written for NBA Service Many.bridge players consider it a point of pride, for' some obscure reason, to play each hand AFL To Meet toniglit .

When today's hand was played, [South was au. inexpert speed demon.

Obviously West was not likely to be leading away from the ace of diamonds. It could cost nothing to play the low diamond from dummy. If East had to play the ace, the.slam would be home. Even if West could win the first trick with the jack of diamonds, dummy could later lead the king through i.i order for South to ruff out the ace. In short, South could lose nothing as long as East had the ace of diamonds. After this hand North made a wise decision.
