McKENNEY Secretary American Hridjc I.cafuc Without n doubt the greatest thrill in contract bridge is the bidding and making a grand slam. Slam bidding fascinates Ihe player wlio Is first Introduced to contract and only loo often to his sorrow. Gumes and rubbers arc repeatedly sacrificed on the altar of slum bidding. Many systems have been devised for slam' bidding. Tho ace-show- Ing system was In vogue for quite some time but lately H lias been losing some of Us popularity. Our readers, however, should become thoroughly familiar with ace-showing so that when it is used against thrin, they will not become confused. While the system Is generally termed "ace-showing," it could be boiler termed "showing no los- [ ers" as under this system \'ay.\ suits are bid as well as aces The ace-howlng system Is a convention which provides Ihat as soon I as both partners have agreed on Ihe same declaration, all subsc- qucnl bids In other suits arc made only to show that you can win the n'rsl round of that suit — cither with the ace or by ruffing. * • » Tho fact that you anrt your partner have agreed on the same suit docs not necessarily mean that you must start in and show aces and void suits. It is only when you believe there is n good t-.hnace for a slam that ace-showing Is used. Ace-showing should not be used until cilher you or ycur partner has made a demand bid. If your partner makes an original forcing suit bid and you support his declaration, a shift now Io anolher suit denotes that the first trick In that suit can lie taken and that the hand contains values which point to slam possibilities. When showing aces, the lowest ranking ace must be,shown fiisl: c. g., South bids two spades, Wen i passes - and you, silting in tho North position, raise partner to i three spades. If your partner were now to bid four diamonds, he| would say that the first diamond trick can be won by him—ellticr with the ace or lie was void o diamonds—and that the hand luu the apiwarance of a possible slam He would also inform you inimc- dialely Hint he did not have control of the club suit because if he held no clubs or tlie ace foclubs his shift would have been to lour clubs i-alhcr than to four dia nionds. therefore unless you cou- Uol the clubs, you immediate!) know llial there can be no slan made unless, of course, partner happens to hold a singleton club or the king and one and clubs an. open Showing of void suils is also doi when the opjKnicuis enter the contracting. Supposing partner bit two spades. We.it bid lliree diamonds, and you bid four diamonds. Yon inform partner o lhr-'c important factors regarding your hand: I- You tell him that you hav no Icsers in the opponents' suit. -• Yon have normal supiwrt for his suit. 3. There are strong slam iwssi- b:litlrs i 0 your hand, and you ic- q«est him to slart and show aces * * * \ With two-suit hands, it is ncc- csi-iHy in making Ihe shift demand on--" more than necessary Io inform partner that yon arc not sho\i-ini; aces; c. g.

Jesus n the Hume of /ucchacus. Luke HY WM. K. Cili.llOY, 1). 1). Editor of Tlie Consrvgalloiulisf Tiie iiuallty of the stories that have come down to us concerning Ihc contact of Jesus with individuals makes us wish that Ihe -New Testament records had given us lany more stories of the same sort. Possibly the llmiled number of these has had much Io do with their preelousticss. but undoubtedly from every standpoint they arc among the most rcmnrkaWc stories that have ever been written—full of human interest and dramatic in their setting, and narrated with a directness and artlcssness that in Itself Is Ihe highest art, but at the same time associated with the deepest of all moral and spiritual teaching, i The story of the passing of Jesus through Jericho, of his meeting with Zacehacus iu«l his cnicrtaln- ment in (ho home of that despised publican, is surely outstanding in its realism. If the mission of Jesus was to seek and Io save the lost, to reclaim for Ihc Kingdom of God men estranged from tlicir own best natures and Irom a life of moral self-respect, as well as from t.ie confidence of their fello-.v juen, surely Zacchacus was a fiinns subject for the visit of the Muster Two .Interpretalions There iiave been Iwo stories concerning Zacchaeus, or two interpretations of tills story. The one assumes that the character and situation of Zacchaeus were very much as one would suppose from lib position as a publican. Tlie publican was the tax-gather; and as Palestine was under Ro:n:m domination, a foreign authority strongly resented by patriotic Jews, a man of Jewish race who gathered (axes for the Roman authorities was like ly to be despised in his comiium ity by those of his own race. That Zacchacus was a Jew is indicated by his name, and the fnc. that the name signifies "the pure" or "the just" was in contrast- with the supposed character of a Jew who fell so low as Io be a publican. The conditions of l!ie tax- gathering, moreover, offered unusual temptation through opportunity for extortion. The custom was to sell the privilege of collecting the taxes, and (he successful candidate nali:rally made as much as lie could of Ihe matter by overreaching and extorting from the tax-payers all that he could. The natural assumption would be that in such a position Zacchaeus had lived very much according to Ihc traditions of t!iat occupalion, that in fact he was a man without either reputation or character who was a fit subject for the exercise of salvation. A Different View Anolher view of the matter, made famous by a great preacher of the last century, Frederick w. Robertson, in his sermon on "Triumphing Over Hindrances," lakes Ihe opposite view. The conception of this sermon is of a man in an unpopular occupation, conscious of temptation, without any of the protecting influences of a reputation to sustain, who is none the less striving earnestly under hindrances to maintain life character. Robertson points out that if Zacchaeus had been an intentional ex- tortioner he would not have been which makes sin its own executioner, exempts man from all penalties but those due for wrongdoing" (page 385). Text: Luke. 13:1-10 And Jesus entered and passed through Jericho. And, behold, there was a men named Zacchaeus', which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich. And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for Ihc press, because he was liltle of stature. And he ran before, and'climbed up into a sycamore tree to see him: for he was to pass that way. And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for today I must, abide at thy house. And he made haste, and came down, and receive',! him joyfully. And when Uicy saw it, they all murmured, saying, That he' was gone to be guest, with a man thai is a sinner. And Zacchaeus .steed, and said unto (he Lord: Behold, Lord, the half of my goods 1 give to the poor; and if I have U!-:i':i any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold. And Jesus said unto nun, This day is. salvation come !o this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham. For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost. able to have restored four-fold t'ne things thai he had taken by fals-j accusation. The fcur-fold restoration of anything that he hid taken was the obligation of a convicted or penitent thief, and Robertson points out that in offering to%rt- Klore .four-fold anything Unit, 'ho had. wrongfully taken as a tax- gatherer, Zacchaeus was in reality revealing Ills own high moral standard, and was saying in effect. "If I have been corrupt in my olTice f have been a thief, and 1 1 restore a thief's portion." There is much warrant for ihe suggestion Uiat if he had been dishonest, the extent of his dishonesty would have b:en far too great to olier such rcstara- lion. Found Salvaliun Whatever may bo the truth as regards these two conflicting conceptions l!:eie can be no question concerning the reality of the salvation that cunic to Zaccharu.-,. Robertson's view cf the matter seems to br> rattier nearer the fact ! otherwise it is somewhat hard to. account for a man of dishcnes'. an r j corrupt life being so anxious to sei ; Jesus that he would climb a tree. i There seems Jo be something mart: than . just curiosity in that action. But whether or not, thu ri'uest uf Jesus.by Zacchaeus was deep and j sincere, ihere was no question whatever regarding the qucit ol Zacchaeus by Jesus. Jesus came io Jericho seeking Zacchaeus, and lie found him. Finding him he won him to nil the richness and beauty of new life. The story ends in a note of triumph and glory. H is a gracious and noble document that ought io tc an inspiration to every man who is striving under the .shadow of a j great handicap to maintain his i character and self-rcsiiect, or w-o has liecomc overwhelmed in the struggle. Jesus of Nazareth n pass, ing by- as in ancient Jericho, and ': there is the same salvation through ' him for every man who will sick the Master alon^' tr.c way.
