That is one reason why you try to tell your partner generally about each additional suit you have in good shape.

Gradales Ho!d Fourth Bible Study Session The Gradale Sorority held its fourth discussion .in the Statewide Bible Study course, "What Can a Young Person Believe?" Thursday evening at the Y. M. C. A. with C. B. Murphy of this city as guest speaker. The invocation was led by Miss Alice Ridgeway. Mr, Murphy stressed the need of Bible study, stating .that "Christian Democracy" depends upon the free and diligent use of the word of God. "Where there is no Bible there is no Democracy," he said. "The Bible rel- veals the plan o£ God for His Kingdom centers in Jesus Christ, the Redeemer of mankind, arid as the Redeemer, He executes three offices-that of prophet, priest and king." "History shows that during the 1900 years of the Christian era, the first two offices of Christ have been vindicated, which leaves only His kingly office to be acknowledged by the nations of the world in order that His kingdon of grace may be fully established in the world. "History also reveals that immediately preceding the wide acceptance of Christ's offices of prophet and priest, there were periods of distress and particularly moral and spiritual decline." Some signs given by the speaker which may indicate the coming of the kingdom are: 1. The condition of the world to- iay economically, politically and socially. 2. The circle of the world is complete. Man's journey is ended. He has pushed west until east has met west. 3. Economic Progress--The curse of labor almost removed, manual labor almost eliminated. Man can produce abundance for all with minimum of labor and time. ALVA C.

West passed, North bid 2-Diamonds, Easts-Clubs, South 3-Diamonds and West passed. North now was in a decisive situation. Ho saw a perfect diamond fit, but hardly any likelihood that the side could take enough tricks to make five-odd for a minor game. He felt that the sloe had about "enough stuff" for a 3-No trump try, but that it was not safely placed unless South could stop the clubs. Lacking any club stoppers himself, he could not dare try a no trump bid at this Upon reflection, he realized tfcat South might have the clubs hi shape, but no protection in hearts, especially since he hadjthe two top honors there himself, pe thereupon bid 3- Hearts, just music to the ears of his partner, who then bid 3-No trump because of hisj club stopper, and made It easily. The 3-Heart bid with only three cards was not as dangerous as it might sound. South would be sure to know Uie suit wasn't over four cards long, since North bid his diamonds first. Therefore if South raised the hearts, he would have at least four, so North would take a chance on the suit breaking. North's acumen produced a game not ir, sight by any other sound tactics.
