WASraNGTON (AP) - The Treasury Department is minting iialf dollars at a record pace and officials now feel certain the shortage of 50-cont pieces which has plagiicd the nation for several years will end early in 1967. A spokesman challenged today the opinion expressed by Gordon Watts, vice president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, who said he wouldn't be surprised if tlie Trcasui-y decided to discontinue making lialves. "The public apparently lias accepted a half-dollar-less econ­ omy," Watts said Wednesday. Treasury officials said there definitely are no plans to stop making the coins which liear the likeness of the late President John F. Kennedy. Roliert A. Wallace, assistant secretary of the Treasury whose jurisdiction includes the Mint, said halt dollars an> now being made at the record rate of 24 million a month and more of them are sliowing uj) in circulation. Wallace called this encourag- ^ing. ('specially when tlie Christ- j mas shopijing season is under way, Wallace has said that once Ijeople realize the Kennedy halves will be the coin of the realm for 25 years the hoarded coins will come out of hiding. It will take an act of Congress to change the likeness of the coin face. SEE THIS! 1963 Dodge 880 4 door sedan, air conditioned, power brakes and power steering.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — What has happened to Los Angeles' cultural explosion? Once considered a cuJtui'al backwater. Los Angeles and its environs began blossoming out tlfivc years ago as new. impressive edifices wei-e opened for tho enjoyment of good music aM theater. Lately various forces, mostly economic, liavc brought troubles to the local s(?cne. Items: 1. Musicians' tiemands pahjmpted the Los Angeles Pliil- harmonic Orchestra to cancel its 1966-67 season. Although this is a common gambit in such negotiations, 14 performances ha:ve already been lost. Average reccipts.-.per concert: $10,000. 2. The Valley Music Theater went Ijankrupt. The theater-in- tftj^round was the only first- cftss shpwplace in the milllon- pspkilation , San Fernando Valley. Backed by show biz figui-es swrh a* Art Linkletter and Bob ]^e, Jt. specialized in Broadway musicals^ but also presented impi-essive drama, telong the theater's ills: the high ciost of musicians and stagehands. 3. The iQustrious Pasadena Playhouse was padlocked for federal tax arrears, then re- cO^ned when the community t^ied to support It. Now the fund-raising drive has failed to ipacli its goal, and new contrib- uticns are being sought. ' 4. The Greek Theater pro- gi'am. which presents a summer season ranging from the Kingston Trio and Tijuana Brass to tho New York City Balltt and "Royal Hunt of the Sun," is in danger of. being canceled. It has been losing money, and the city- owned amphitheater is in decaying condition. 5. Running low on musical s I jows and concert atti-actions, Melodyland in Anaheim has opened a hare-breasted Las Vegas spelaclc. Tlie city fathert; who fear the sliow will harm the city's image, retaliated by ordering removal of Melodyland'a advertising sign from mimicipal property. All this prompted one show business veteran to comment: "Los Angeles is still a cow-town fbr theater." But a proponent of Los Angeles theater counters: "Sure, we've got a long way to go in educating Southern Califomians to theater. "Yet there are hopeful signs. The Little Theaters around Hollywood and West Los Angeles are among the liveliest anywhere. The UCLA theater group is one of the five best community theaters in the country. The Gvic Light Opera grossed $3,700,000 w^th four musicals running seven weeks apiece." The futui'e of Los Angeles theater appears focused on the Mu« sic Center, where the Civic Light Opera holds forth and the Theater Group will now be located.

This particullar bid known as the preemptive jump overcoll is standard expert practice today. In 1031 Jacoby was about the only person who i^ped it, although other experts followed along shortly thereafter. We still recommend the bid but not with quite so weak « hand as Jacoby held then. The purpose of the preemptive weak jump overcall is to deprive your opponents of bidding space. It also is likely to excite ttiem and cause them to misbid. The danger of the bid comes from treing doubled and in which case your opponents could have made had they played the hand. The two heart bid excited Mrs. Culbertson sitting North. She jumped to three spades. Ely Culberttson, South, bid foui- diamonds. From then on the bidding continued to six diamonds. Ely's four and five no-trump bids were normal. This match was played before anyone had invented an artificial four no- trump convention, Mrs. Culbei-tson might well have stopped at five no-trump but she knew Ely had a good hand and could not visualize that most of his strength was in hearts. The slam would have made except for the fact that Jacoby came up with the lead of tJic six of spades. He hoped to discourage a spade finesse but »t turned out that Lenz held the ace, Lenz returned a spade for the setting trick. With any other suit led Culbertson would have made all the tricks. mpoiisiiiiigl discovery for stainless steel! formulated wllhaipeciil inf'edicfil used by professioMi flnlihcnof prcciouf mctili Mfraeft-Formura ^ tfllNITE SWAteMStNlPMUk ACTS INSTANnV DISSOIVES TARNISH ON CONTACT Gives htMml, fasting futlre; adds tarnish'tesisUnl frnhh: needs no hard tabbing.
