Ynu must tell them what you have; what they have, they , keep to themselves. As a result, many partnership from. He has an easier chance to give and get Information about your combined suits. If your partner can make any responding bid to your no - trump contracts are wrecked on the rocks opening, he certainly has enough of distribution. Hands are played t no - trump that should have been played In some suit. And suit contracts fall far short of their goal. Habitual no - trumpers aro always telling you "my hand lookt?d as if It should play In no - trump from my side." Or, "I didn't think we could make game in a minor " In all other respects, they look like human beings. They had sense enough to say yes to their wives. But they like to wallow In no - trump bids up to their neck. It Is always better to start with on In a suit than with one no - trump. That goes no matter what' type of hand you hold. Providing, of course, you have a biddable suit to show. If you open with one no - trump, partner must respond at the lev! of two. Whereas, if you open with to answer your suit hid.

VV. Gerry, super visor of the women's division, rational selective service, an nounced today. Until now, young women have had to be 19 years of age before they were allowed to commence training as pupil nurses. Dr. T. A. Pincock, psychiatrist will address a group of 17 - year - old girls who have been called by selec tive service in an attempt to obtain a sufficient number of young women to take training as pupil nurses in mental hospitals and re lieve the grave shortage of staff which now exists In Manitoba's mental Institutions. Girls would now be able to complete their course as registered nurses at the age of 21 years, Mrs. Gerry pointed out. For two years of this time, they would receive $25 per month plus a cost - of - living bonus of $5, with no government deductions and full maintenance and uniform provided. Pupil nurses receive three weeks' vacation on the completion of one year's service and work an eight - hour day and six - day week. Transportation to the hospital would be paid. lilrls of 17, wllh Grade 11 stand ing, woula enter the Brandon mental hospital as pupil nurses. They would remain there for two years, on pay, and then go to the Winnipeg General hospital to complete their training and qualify as registered nurses.

IHEY SAID SOMETHING ABOUT I YOU, MISS EFFIE. SEEMS LIKE J I 0L0 TOOTINHOPNS BEEN H0L0IN7 TERRY AND THE TIRATES By Milton Caniff The average player, on lead dummy and when East played low, gainst a small slam contract, laysjwent right up with the club king, down an ace whenever he holds; In the tirst place, If West had had one of those potent cards, wrltesilwo aces along with the spade suit correspondent. The following Vhich the whole setup indicated deal Illustrates one of the iniquities! ne must have, he would either nave orenea me oiciaing or mane a secondary spade bid over the t I of this practice.

Pas Pass No ooner was the final pass out f East' mouth than West banged down' the spade ace. That lead alone - ' was all the declarer needed to simplify his play! He ruffed, cleaned up the oaUstanding trump, then led a cTub from one diamond; in the second place, with two aces, it is certain that he would have doubled the slam bid. Thus, if West had not led the spade ace but had made a neutral heart or trump opening, declarer would have had a sheer guess on the club lead from dummy whether to play the king or the jack and there would have been a 50 percent chance of his guessing wrong. This correspondent's point that an ace is not always a good lead against a slam contract, is well taken, although it is only fair to observe that in many cases that very lead is vital. A good bridge player, however, would have guessed the club situation correctly. Let suppose West opens a heart or a diamond. As soon a possible declarer leads a spade from dummy, and when East fails to play the ace, It Is highly presumable that he doe not hold that card. Now declarer, working on the sound principle that the aces are probably "split" between the defenders, plays East for the club ace, and on a subsequent lead from dummy, when East plays a low club, declarer confidently goes up with the king. Hygiene association, It was announced today. The high award was given in recognition of Col. Williams' work in the field of hygiene both before and during his connection with the Canadian army.
