BARCLAY ON BRIDGE WRITTEN FOB CENTRAL PRESS By Shepard B a r c l a y "The Authority ou AntborittM" THE TKOMP COUl It is not necessary to lead a rump through the opponent's ruarded trump honor toward your i\vn tcnaco In order to capture his. H you arc ablo to time the play of the hand so that, toward the close, you lead tome other suit through him, in which you can over-ruff U he ruffs, you obtain the same result When that timing Is obtained by using up somo of your own trumpi for rudlng, «o that you will shorten your own holding and not bo caught with the late lead In the wrong hand, you arc using a trump coup. And If the cards you ruffed to shorten your trumps happen to be winning high cards, then tho "lay Is called a "grand coup". $ 8 6 5 2 A 2 Hli ambitions were realized by too play, whereas tho others, h»v- ng bid only six, gave up one trump rick and claimed tho rest The alddcr of seven proceeded to trump the lead of tho diamond K with the pads 2. Ho then led a heart to tho 3 and finessed the spado 10. Sow he laid down the spade A, and East's Q-9 holding was disclosed. His next move was to lead o the heart Q, and ruff a diamond.

BELLEVILLE, 111, Mar. 18.--Federal troops and itate police patrolcd a mile-long path of desolation today where a tornado killed nine persons, injured 50, and destroyed property worth approximately 5500,000. While the tornado was ripping through Belleville and environs late yesterday afternoon, other wind storms, some of tremendous force, were ripping at cities and towns in Missouri, Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi, Arkansas, Kentucky, Iowa and Indiana. In all, including the Belleville dead, 15 persons were killed. But the Belleville tornado was by far the worst and it was feared that some of the 25 critically injured would die. The black funnel roared in from the southwest and cut a path from two to three blocks wide through a residential section. At least 100 dwellings were demolished. The tornado first struck here, then lifted, to descend and hit O'Fallon, a suburb. Trees were felled or uprooted in its path and hurled hundreds of feet. Houses were bowled over. In 'many, Instances only foundations remained. Several were killed when their automobiles were hurled into buildings. In one instance two automobiles demolished a filling station when they were swept against it. The tornado missed the $1,000,000 Belleville High School by scarcely 50 feet, breaking only a few windows. The Union grade school, directly in the storm's path, where less than two hours before 250 pupils had dismissed, was demolished. The telephone exchanges were swamped with calls from outside the city. Telegraph communications, destroyed by the storm, were not restored entirely until early today.

It was considered possible, how- ver, for France to impose a moder- to form of exchange restriction dc- gned primarily to prevent currency, ieculatlon, and yet remain a partner the three nation pact. A tremendous inflow of capital rom .abroad probably would be fol- owed by renewal of gold imports to ic United States. Any incoming old in excess of $100,000,000 in each uarter of the year would be ab- orbcd by the Treasury's gold stcrli- ition machinery. Most of the "escape" money com- ng into tho United States generally nds its way into short-term bank ccounts while a large portion usual- y Is converted into American securi- es. Government economists here feel hat this would be undesirable be- ause it would swell the volume o£ die bank funds and thus broaden he credit base beyond actual needs, nd because foreigners might with- raw their funds at n later date, criously unsettling the stock market y large-scale liquidation. In addition to these problems .ustria owes the Treasury approximately $25,000,000 advanced in the orm of post-Armistice relict sup- tlics. American investors also hold ipproximatcly $41,000,000 of Aus- rian government municipal and corporate bonds.

With this statement the cour granted a demurrer by the defense and ended a highly publicized child- neglect case. District Attorney Rcilly protested angrily against the court's decision. "This Is not a question of law bu a question of fact for the jury to de cide," he declared. "If the Cornmon wealth has made no case, then ther never has been, a case 'n this court room."
