',"'' BY .JEAN PATOU Wrilcn for MEA Scivltc PARIS—Most of the mode's diversity and novelty this season is undoubtedly in the treatment- of sleeves. The simplicity of lino of ihe present afternoon styles has been maintained for a purpose, und you will Invariably find that when tlie thcmo of a season's lasliions h simple, the- note of fan- tnsy 13 apparent by Uic.-increasedH attention paid lo one particular detail. More often than not, this fantasy is focused at one certain point, hence tlie tremendous importance attached these . days to sleeves. Wliile the evolution from the ultra-simple mode to one replete with intricate details was .n pro- grfssivc one, the new sleeves seem to have hauiieiied overnight, accustomed as we were to narrow straight effects. I think they show unusual fantasy. An event looked forward to throughout, the early spring montltf by the 250 people who attend the breakfast, It is planned lo make the affair even more interesting this year with a reduction in prices. The meal will cost 35 cents. The proceeds go to the building fund of the First Methodist church, circle 4 of the Woman's Missionary society of this congregation sponsoring the breakfast. * * • Cta.cs Elects Officers.

"Better Homes Week" will be observed this week by tho county council of farm women's clubs as the major feature of the season.

The marriage ot Miss Mary nuby May of Stole, Mo., and Mr. Hank 301emn . noon gowns show fullness which at one time was entirely reserved for evening coats. On closer examination, hflwever, they will be found to be considerably simplified and to have acquired a style all their own. Sleeve fullness is achieved In a diversity ol manners, and It is this almost Infinite diversity that attracts the attention. Some versions start full nt the, top to en:' bell-shaped at the wrisl. Others arc distinctly bouffant above the elbow or, conlrarily, bouffant fron: the elbow down, the fullness being further enhanced by Ihe tuldlllor of n pleated frill or fine shirring In this domain, as with any detail of fashions, any idea of exaggeration Is to be carefully nvold ed. The main pitfall, In case, where the whole fantasy of n gowi is centralized at one point, is tha his con appear totally foreign o the ensemble itself. So with lie new sleeves, the general nr.rt inal effect must b carefully stud- ed and considered.

E. McKENNEV Secretary, American Bridge League In the quantitative showing ot tricks system when partner has made an original bid of one or more of n suit and the opponents have passed, you are called upon to do one of three things—you must either pass, support your partner's original bid, or bid some other suit or no trump. When partner makes an original bid, the probable trick-taking value of his hand is as follows: An original bid of one shows four- rive probable tricks. An original bid of two shows six- Eeven probable iricks. An original blrt of three shows eight-nine probable tricks. An original bid o! lour (major) shows almost 10 probable tricks. An original bid ot four (minor) shows 10 probable tricks. An original bid of five in a minor shows II probable tricks. We havo also learned that up tc a game-going declaration, one trick i's.. always allowed for llic play, of the' hand, tilprefore if you hold normal support in partner's suit, yon should assist your partner's bid according to the following table: following are considered supporting tricks: Each quick trick one' porting trick Each probable trick .. one supporting trick Length and strength in partner's suit has additional support!!!" trick values according to the following Supporting (rick value AM or kicj or quctn and another .... E M h honor 1 trick Jack, ten and another .. 14 trick Four ot partner's suit .. >(. trick Four of partner's suit (with 1 trick 1 (rick For example, holding A. K. x r. ot partner's suit, you would count one trick each for the ace and king and one-half trick because you held four trump, which would give you two nnd one-half supporting tricks If you also held a singleton or voirt suit, you would add onc-hulf additional trick which would give you a total of three supporting tricks. Supposing you held queen jack ien of partner's suit. You would count one for the queen, one-halt for the jack ten, giving you one and one-half supporting tricks, wliile if you held queen jack ten and small of partner's suit, you would count an additional one-half trick for the fourth card of partner's suit, which would give you two supporting tricks. In addition to all of the above tables, you are allowed the following valuation for ruffing possibilities when holding tiires or more of partner's suit: . When your hand contains » void suit .. two supporting tricks When your hand contains a singleton ., one supporting trick When jour hand contains a doubleton .. one-half supporting trick.

But under Ihe quantitative showing of tricks, J x x is considered normal support—also A x. K x or Q J. You will notice that ill the above table we say to raise partner's original suit bid with a certain number of supporting tricks. Supporting the values given for original bids the values given for iriginal bids. by the addition of bcll-slnpe.-i Iccves or sleeves with n side flare. The effect from the; back—the best vantage point—would be found lo be absolutely discordant and im- lalnly. . Very full sleeves obviously can only be ftaturcd In formal ensembles, because the general style adapts itself usually to such a fantasy and also because the fabric used must necessarily bo very light and supple. I think fancy sleeves can provide one of the most charming details in fashions, but they must absolutely harmonize with the character and style of ihe ensemble. It takes very little to fall into nn anachronism and thus border on the ridiculous. Wants Conventions ST.
