I was unfortunate East and my partner an old timer who had never unlearned the old theories. He opened the king of spades, looked over dummy and promptly shifted to the nine of diamonds, where upon South proceeded to take the remaining tricks." Jim; "At least West adhered to his incorrect principles. He didn't lead away from his king and he did lead thi-ough strength. Too bad he didn't follow the first principle of card play and think." Oswald: "Had West stopped to think he would have seen that if East hold either the queen or ace a club shift might defeat the contract. The diamond lead would be a giveup play." Jim: "The club lead away from the king might conceivably cost a trick. It couldn't cost the sotting tiick. Actually it would have led to the defeat of the contract." 12-5806 BREHM-HANNA CHEVROLET Mt.

If you ate like the Pilgrims, Thursday's Thanksgiving dinner would cost you about three times as much. And you would have to skip the cranberries and pumpkin pie. Once wild turkeys were plentiful near Plimoth Plantation in as Massachusetts and bear and venison were mainstays for dinner. But now wild turkey is 52 ,35 a pound, native black bear roast S3.50, and venison back roast 52 .55. If you wanted to throw a little 17th-century Thanksgiving dinner for 142 — 52 colonists and 90 Indians — it would rost you 5678.76; or $4.78 a person. That's with wild turkey, venison, bear, mussels, eels and succotash. If you'd settle for the traditional 20th-century vei-sion, you could scrape by for $214.77 — 51.51 a person. That's for just plain tiu'key, dressing, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie and all that. You might want to do without wild rice, though. There was too much water in Minnesota's lakes this year, and the wild rice grown there is selling for 59.33 a pound, nearly double the price of a year ago. In New England, they say, Gov. William Bradford proclaimed the first Thanksgiving in 1621. In Virginia, where everything is a little older, they Bay the first celcbr-ation was at Jamestown in 1619. The Pilgrims didn't leave any engraved menus around. Neither did their Indian guests. The experts can only guess what they ate. The good ladies at Plimoth Plantation, the reconstructed village in Massachusetts, have turned up a letter Edward Winslow wrote in December 1621, telling of fish and fowl in abundance, eels in September, mussels, grapes — both red and white, and Indians who brought oysters. Bradfoi'd Smith, a descendant of the governor, says there were wild turkeys, eels, fish, corn bread and wine, but no potatoes and probably no onions, cranberries, pie or sugar. Other historians talk about I roast turkey, venison, bear, geese, ducks, fish, com bread, nuts, succotash, journey cake, | com pumpkins and honey. The Associated Press took this shopping list to a super- maket chain and a New York store that sells gourmet foods to see how much the 17th-century dinner would cost today. The bill, rounded off, adds up to 17 cents for each guest lor oysters, 17 more for eels, 6 lor mussels, 10 for corn on the cob. 3 for pumpkin squash, 4 for honey, 5 for red grapes and 10 for white, 24 for walnuts, and 60 .cents for wine. Wild turkey adds 94 cents, native black bear roasts $1.161 and venison 84. Add 5 more cents for com! muffins, the closest thing a supermarket has to New England journey cake, 11 cents for codfish and 12 cents for succotash — canned Brunswick stew mollify the Virginians. It adds up to a lot more than what usually is cited as the most expensive Tlianksgiving dinner in modern times — $2.15 per person back in 1951. to Dairy Meeting Held In Breese Dairy farmers and their wives of the area attended the tenth annual American Dairy Association district meeting yesterday at the Wil Char Restaurant in Breese.
