Tips on Contract Beware Freak* By TOM O*NEIL Possession of the ace and king of trumps and two other aces and a king would seem to warrant a double of a vulnerable game cou- tract. But a hand of great distributional strength can offset a defending powerhouse. B. J. Morse rued his double in the following hand in a Brooklyn rubber game: DECEMBER 5 NEW DESIGNS IN EVENING GOWNS .at her home Sunday. The time was .spent informally.

After ruffing South spending the Thanksgiving holidays led toward the king of spades. West with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Ray came up with the ace and then led ·Pflulnv I a diamond. It was too late. The ace was played. On the king and queen of clubs and the king of spades South discarded three diamonds from his hand and led a heart, losing only to the ace and king, held by West. The bidding- indicated a long heart suit South; eo the way to have set the contract would have been for West to open the play with a trump lead in order to look at dummy, and then lead either one of his two diamonds. Such a lead would be certain to set the contract one. It would v insure the defense's making one diamond, one spade and two hearts. It behooved West from the start to avoid as much as possible setting up suits on which South could obtain discards. West could not have avoided setting up the spade king, but he could have fixed things so that the king anil queen of clubs were useless to the declarer. West could not have made four clubs on the hand. Pauley. MARRIAGE LICENSES ISSUED TO COUPLES · Marriage licenses have been issued to F. E.

Round or Sirloin Steak Inspired by many requests the committee In charge of the old time dances sponsored by Clausen-Worden Logion post will Introduce at the armory next Saturday night in connection with the regular scheduled dance a feature which la believed to b« unique in the annals of ;modr em dancing. Beginning at 8 o'clock with a special old time orchestra the first hour of the .program will be given over to the instruction of the younger set In the time honored art of dancing the quadrille or square dance. _ This is how it will be done. A couple who know the quadrille will be assigned to each set Of beginners. This couple will dance In the set and direct the changes 'as announced by the caller and will see that everyone properly learns the steps and movements. Like the modern return of fash- Ions In women's clothes, approaching the styles of a generation ago the interest taken by the youngei people in the old style of dancing is becoming greater and greater. In many towns much larger than Mason City dance programs Include more and more of the old time numbers. When asked as to the reason for this a member of the Leglpn com mlttee aald: "I don't really know !t just seems to be the smart thin; to do right now,-and from what : can learn the younger people are going for It everywhere. The pop uiar- orchestras arc Including quad rllles in their repertoire to meet the demand and are playing to capaclt; crowds and of course, knowing th" old time dances .the younger people dance the entire program "withou 'sitting out' once. Those interested in this feature are urged, to get up a "set" amoni their friends and there is no ques tion but what thera will he enough volunteer "old timers" to act as in structors. As it will be impossible for the committee to get in touch with all of them personally it ia expected that they will be on hand early and will take great Interest in participating In this event.

Due to the volume of business which Is handled by postal clerks during this period of the year it is impossible for them to check every parcel which passes through their hands, nor can they question every sender as to whether his package is properly packed and wrapped, the postmaster aald. He also warned those who intend to ship parcels for arrival at their destination before Christmas that a parcel must'be mailed In sufficient time so that it will arrive in the postoffice at Its destination by Friday evening, Dec. 22, if It is to be delivered before Christmas. This is due to the fact that Christmas falls on Monday, and, as there la no delivery on Sunday, i package must be in the carrier's hands Saturday morning, Dec. 23.
