Boston Sunday Globe November 7, 1971 ACES ON BRIDGE 4 i. THE STAMP HOBBY 7: ! Talk promises to heat 1 Bhra G. Corn Jr. m i Uer Mr. Corn: During our regular Friday-night game tae opponents really mangled us on this lind. It's been the subject of cool discus-sj?n ever since, but I think the tempera- ti-e is going up, 4 Can you comment on the bidding, particularly East's tree hearts? 7 These were the hands and WEST 4.KQ982 S?KQ3 OA984 6 South West 3 DbL 4 4S? EAST A76 S7 98765 OQ7 532 7 North East Redbl. 3? , DbL All pass 2' i Mugged, ? Manchester, Conn. -Answer West's double was normal aj was East's bid of three hearts. East right have bid diamonds; however, he cannot be faulted for choosing the major. If North had bid a suit over West's doubly East's bid would have been "free" and shown values. Over a redouble, East's bid merely suggests a possible shelter in the forecasted storm. West's bid of four hearts is, like walking alone in dark alleys. No wonder West was mugged. DRUM CORPS NOTES Ul-Ainerica BfHerb Cole jThat drum corps is a yrjuth activity was re-' affirmed, last weekend, when the minimum membership age was dropped td" 18 by . the All-America Drum & Bugle Corps & ; Band Assn. for its parent body and judge chapters. More than 100 delegates ; fipm 28 states approved this proposal in a windup session to the national convention in Chicopee. rThe unprecedented action may resolve a problem that has been a thorn in the ! siye of drum corps expan-. sion. jOver the past decade, a shortage of qualified judges has become increasingly acute. . .Contests have been steadily mounting in number with a correspondingly heavier demand for judges. !3n many cases, the scarcity of competent officials has forced units to compete before the same battery of . judges most of the season itimport others from great distances and at great expense. , Surveys reveal that several teen-agers of proven talent have been pressed into service in instructional capacities and have done extremely well. 3f they can teach, then why can't they judge was the question racing through delegate s' minds in Chicopee. jpaining entrance to the association must still follow" the familiar practice of joining the parent group first and then becoming eligible for the judging group. Further information can be' obtained from State Chapter Commander Ray O'Brien, 5 Stevens st., Sfoneham 02180. Elected chief judge of the Mass. chapter was Walter D'Agostino, 69 Page St., Avon with Anthony Con-stantine of Willimansett chosen the national commander of the parent body. fciext year's convention CUT-II'S" TJCCUSE ME, WOULD in inn i JimwpKPwu.iimiMumi ' "r y , , u m,, MJ j llMl , m I "Vr J 1 ' 11 - --- -- - - -.. inmmi - - Dear Mr. Corn: I am reading a book by the "other authority" He advises that a four-no-trump bid over either two.-or three-no-trump opening is made on nine or seven balanced points, respectively. Is "Brand X" sugesting the four-no-trump bid as ace asking? Madison Av., Wake Forest, N.C. Answer Our competitor is selling you the straight goods. The direct raises in no trump are point-showing bids. Opener passes with a minimum and bids on with a maximum. Dear Mr. Corn: What does one say to guests or hosts ' who refuse to use the word "Pass?" Am I being a stick-in-the-mud or are others equally upset by the "by-mes'," "no bids" and the like? I'm an old-timer but I think I could learn to tolerate deviation if the guys at, the top do. Fuddy-Duddy, Taylor, Mich. Answer "Pass" is the suggested call, but even "'at the top" "no bid" is sometimes used. Consistency is important and bidding such as follows should be avoided: East-West free bid of the bidding: lowers age will be held the last weekend in October in Sarnia, Ont. under the auspices of -the Michigan chapter. . . Among honors won in competition ' during the four-day conclave were Princemen of Melrose (color guard); Beverly Cardi -als (small corps) and a clean sweep of percussion segments by the Boston Crusaders. In the latter, Charles Poole maintained his position as the top snare-drummer in the nation, turning back challengers from as far West as California and Oregon. The Pitts brothers were unbeatable in tenor drumming with Dan first in single drum and Paul ahead in double tenor. Mike Maniscalco posted the top score in rudimental drumming. A major future Ail-American project is a clinic-seminar next March in the Hub area as a pre-sea-son aid to interested managers and instructors in digesting new Legion and judging . procedures for 1972. To tie in with this judges situation above is an incident that took place Labor Day weekend in Syracuse, N.Y. The DCA-contest hosting Brigadiers, looking for a gimmick to give their show . added fan appeal, weren't the slightest bit perturbed over any shortage of judges. In fact, they purposely created their own shortage in a literal "The Customer Is The Judge" affair. Game and willing to try anything new, the Hawthorne Caballeros, Hurricanes, Skyliners, Yankee Rebels and Sunrisers lined up after their routines had been presented. They finished in the above-listed order on the strength of applause from the stands. Further attempts along this line are doubtful but BY YOU HAPPEN TO HAVE THE TIME?", up South West North East Pass 1 Pass 1 0 No bid 2 0 Pass 2 NT By me 3 0 Pass 4 0 Content 5 0 Pass Pass My lead? limit to 18 - one is given cause to ponder over how the contest may have actually differed under the conventional judging system. . Dan Lasdow is again assisting Ed Denon in Boston Crusader horn instruction. Jerry Shellmar is reported to be writing the percussion section of the '72 Crusader repertoire with the execution in the hands of two assistants.

CHESS Cruising on first 30, but then, watch out! By Harold Dondis . t aui Gentle moves in the end game. Black to move and win. The Fischer match has put us far behind in reporting local chess news. Just for example, the Greater Brockton Open, featuring the return of Robert Goodspeed as tournament director, was won jointly by Leo Kupersmith, L A. and Allan Savage, of Clark University. Savage is a real comer among the young players, somehow manages to play well by spending 2 hours, 58 minutes on the first 30 BENNETT MORRILL :' i If-.- K 7l 1 I r .. SILHOUETTED FISHERMAN at Boston's Pleasure Bay is set-off by an optical oddity caused by a 500mm Nikkor mirror-optic lens. Sun flecks reflecting on water in background appear as tiny circles of light. The inherent lack of depth of focus in the 500mm lens plus the angle of reflection causes the phenomenon.

N.Y. 10601 Several countries honoring Iran for 2500th anniversary By Jay Hatch There's something mighty impressive about age. Not so much talk about the millions of years man has been in this universe. Recorded history is what's most staggering, and for most of us this means ancient lands. Great Britain next year will mark the 50th year since the finding of old King Tut's tomb. That's old, all right. But so is the tomb of the ancient Persian ruler Cyrus the Great. It is being pictured this squarish stone box atop several stone steps because Cyrus was the founder, 2500 years ago, of the present Iranian dynasty. Iran has just celebrated all this lavishly. Now it is winning philatelic plaudits, too. Belgium released a 7fr picturing ithe tomb. So has Turkey in a three-stamp set. The other two stamps present in beautiful mosaic colors an Iranian miniature and a snapshot of Ataturk greeting Riza Shah Pahlavi of Iran. Ireland Nov. 15 will release its first Christmas stamp set, 2p and 6p - reproducing the masterpiece of Irish artist John Hughes, his Madonna , and Child statue which can be seen in Loughrea Cathedral. It is a photograph with interesting light and shadow. For a merry stamp there's the 50 yen Japan released Oct. 6 for International Letter-writing week. It reproduces a portion of Hoson's woodblock print called "Tokyo Horse Tramway", showing the horse-drawn car beside a fast-moving riksha. Taiwan Nov. 16 will release five THE COIN COLLECTOR Israeli commemorative dedicated to Soviet Jews By Joel Sable A special commemorative coin issue dedicated to the cause of Soviet Jewry has been announced by the Israel Government Coins and Medals Corp. The legal tender coins have face values of 10 and 50 Israeli pounds. Struck for the Bank of Israel at the government mint in Jerusalem, the 10 pound issue of the coin is to be offered in both proof and uncirculated condition. The 50 pound coin will be a proof gold issue. The special coin issue was approved by the governor of the Bank of Israel "in view of the world-wide interest, solidarity and sympathy for the cause of Soviet Jews in their struggle to live as Jews or leave for Israel." The obverse of the coin displays the sun shining behind iron bars, with a legend inscribed in Hebrew and English, "Let My People Go."

Sensational Europa bridge is pictured on a 4S Austria released Oct. 4 for the inauguration of Brenner Highway. Brenner Pass was the first mountain highway across the Alps linking the cold north and warm Mediterranean, and has been used since Roman days. Now the new highway, with 44 bridges at breath-taking heights, has been opened as a toll road. Engineers from all over the world have been flocking to marvel at gigantic Euro-. pa Bridge, king of the bridges. Postmaster General Blount, unveiling next year's US philatelic program, has said we will be in for sets in order to do justice to some of the subjects. For the 100th anniversary of national parks (Yellowstone was the first) there will be five stamps: 2c Cape Hatteras; 6c Wolf Track Farm Park, Va.; 8c Yellowstone ; 11c City of Refuge, Hawaii; 15c Mt. McKinley. information pertaining to the struggle of Soviet Jews, plus a section on the persecution' of Jews in Arab states, will be packaged , with each coin. Another special item will be a small lapel pin " featuring the motto "Let My People Go.", Further details on the issue may be obtained by contacting the Government of Israel, Coins and Medals Department, 850 Third av., New York, N.Y. 10022.
