DECEMBER 19 1933 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE SEVEN CHILD SPECIALIST GIVES TIMELY TIPS TO TOY-BUYERS S e l e c t i o n Should Be Thoughtful Many A n g l e s Enter Into Matter of Purchasing Child's Gift. IOWA CITY, Dec. 19. OB--You needn't have that guilty feeling, Dad that you are depriving three- year-old Johnny of his Christmas day enjoyment when you monopolize that new electric train. Johnny--in case your conscience needs easing--is getting a bigger k' k oul; of that set of blocks and lUe picture book. He's not yet old enough to appreciate the train. Your authority, in case friend wife thinks you're being saltish, is Dr. Ruth TJp- degraff, University of Iowa child specialist. Dr. Updegraff, who has made a study of children's play materials finds that play is the child's occupation and for this reason toys should he selected which will aid in nis development. The mechanical toys, designed to attract the adult eye are not so popular with children of Johnny's age. To Use by Himself. "A child wants something he can play with himself, and he will soon lose interest if his Christmas toy is something father or big brother must manipulate for him," says Dr. Updegraff. And she adds that most toys need not be expensive, but in buying certain types of mobile toys it is more economical to pay for quality. She lists foir. types of development that can be furthered by proper selection of play materials. "Mobile toys, such as kiddie cars and velocipedes, will aid in physical "nvelopment," says Dv. Uptlegraff. "Clay and blocks aid in social devel- pmcnt, building materials, crayons and paints, creative ability; and dolls, blocks and dishes, imagination." Consideration should be given in purchasing toys as to their durability whsther they can tie cleaned easily, and whether the child can play with them himself. Dr. Updegraff also suggested those New and Colorful . . Smart and Flattering For Christinas!

OUT TO GREET SANTA GLAUS Tips on Contract Assumptions By TOM O'NKIL When a player is in a difficult contract, at times ihe only hope of success lies in assuming an arrangement of cards in the hands of opponents which would permit success. Bids by opponents, especially opening bids and doubles, may locate key cards so that the assumption can be tempered somewhat with certainty. An excellent example comes from New London, Conn., in a hand played by Mrs. Florence Fitcli Osborn.

Johnston's Flowers Across From 1'arK 10 First Street N. W. FLOWER PHONE 22S OPEN EVENINGS OPEN EVENINGS Starting Tuesday East made an opening bid of one I diamond. Mrs. Osbom, seated south, '·-laturally passed. West went to two i diamonds. North doubled to make j oouth bid. East offered three dia- aonds, and Mrs. Osborn made an ptimlstic recall of three hearts, ahe asseumed that her partner's ouble indicated strength in the ma- ors. West passed, and North took he contract to four hearts, which ;ast doubled. West opened the ace of diamonds, \nri Mrs. Osborn took stock. She reflected that East's opening jid and double without possession ·t the ace of diamonds and the lack f strength shown in West's bid- ting must mean that East had the dng of clubs, the king- of hearts and irobably the queen of spades. Evidently the club finesse would ose and the heart finesse win. Tf so, she figured out a way to make the co' tract on the assumption that 3ast held only one club besides the ting. After West took his ace of diamonds he shifted t the spade three, which was taken ir the North hand with the king. The heart knave was led and won when East refused to cover. The lead of the heart ten followed. East ag«Tin refused to cover, and South went up with the queen. She then ruffed the last diamond from her hand with the last heart North. Came now the test of the assumption as to the club doubleton. The lead of the ace of clubs, followed by a low club, put Eas' in the lead. He led the queen of spades, which South allowed to hold in order that West should not get the lead. If the queen were taken in the North hand immediately, anything that could be led from North could be taken by the opponents and the king of hearts would make. East led with hi.: last spade, but Mrs. Osborn won with the ace and took the rest of the tricks after a spade lead, ruffed South. The opposition made only the diamond ace, the club lung and the spade queen. A SIK. AND SIRS. LKFFI/KR GIVE CHRISTMAS PARTV Mr. and MKS. C. E.
