LABOR REMINDS DEMOCRATS IT BACKS KENNEDY HARRISBURG, Mar. 4.--T h e Democratic State Committee which indorsed Charles Alvin Jones, Pittsburgh lawyer, for Governor, was reminded today that the Pennsylvania labor movement is "definitely" on record for the gubernatorial candidacy of Lieutenant Governor Thomas Kennedy. Kenn dy, secretary-treasurer of the United Mine Workers of America urged by CIO Chieftain John L. Lewis for Democratic State Committee indc:.?ment, has not announced his candidacy. The reminder that he is labor's choice to succeed Governor George H. Earlc, slated lor U. S. Senator, was issued by John A. Phillips, president o£ the newly founded Pennsylvania Industrial Union Council which replaced the State Federation of Labor, disbanded by President William Green of the American Federation of Labor, in response to "insistent demands from affiliated unions that a statement be issued giving the point of view of the labor movement in the State on the existing pol'tical situation." Phillips' statement carried the text of the indorsement resolution adopted at the annual convention of the State Federation last April 2: "Resolved That the Pennsylvania Federation oJ Labor cr" upon those eligible to cn- "tcr the Democratic party primaries to secure the nomination for Governor of Thomas Kennedy."

BXB CENTRAL PEBSS B y S h e p a r d B a r c l a y -The Authority on Authorities'' JOHN H. STOUT TELLS ROTARY OF BOX MAKING . THE WEAKER PREVAILS ' WHEN TWO pnrtnera arc trying .to sign off on a misfit hand, tho one who Bounds as it ho has the weaker holding should usually be fallowed to prevail. Tho chances 'ate h« lacks sldo suit honor 'Strength which would make his cards a good dummy for his mate, whereas he probably has fair length at his own suit and can use Ms partner's stronger cards lor a 'helpful dummy. The trouble about oil this, however. Is that sometimes a player thinks a certain bid by jhlrn will sound weak to tho one 'across tho table, but does not real- [ly seem so at all. Then usually comes disaster. 4 Q J 10 6 · 2 V A 87 8 7 S + K J 1 0 9 S (Dealer: North. Neither fide vulnerable.) This deal arose in a rubber game and after two passed, South opened the bidding with 1-Club. West ovcrcallcd with 1-Heart and North put In a bid of 1-Spade. South then TCWd his clubs and North his spades. South figured that he had signed off at 2-Clubs and that a continua- of the bidding by North, who had bid over West's ovcrcall, indicated that ho wished tho bidding to jo on. South therefore put in » old of 3-Dlamonds. North responded to this with 1 3-Spadcs, which East doubled, and South rescued with 3-No Trumps, which West doubled. The contract was set three tricks. North's argument was that he had passed a fairly good hand, and as his partner was able to bid, the hand was even more valuable and he should have been allowed to play it at 2-Spadcs. South was equally sure that his bidding of 2-Clubs was a signal that he wanted to sign off and blamed North for bidding tho spades so often. After a heated argument neither would confess that he wa» In tho wrong. · · » Tomorrow's Problem *10 6 4 8 6 4 + 7 5 4 5 4 A 8 5 4 V A Q + A Q 2 V J S 7 · J 10 5 3 10 96 4 K Q J 8 7 » K 10 9 «.9 72 + K S (Dealer: West East-West vulnerable.)

The development of the paper carton and the industry, covering a period of some 35 years, was related o members of /the Rotary Club at ts luncheon today by John H. Stout, manager of tha plant of the Fort Wayne Corrugated Paper Company at South Connellsville. A product of waste paper and vood pulp, the material which en- ers into the making of shipping cases has practically supplanted vood itself.
