McKENNEY Sttrrelarv American Bridge League For the past few months we lave been reviewing the various ontract bidding'systems. Our lat- •r articles have been devoted to lie McKcnney system of contract bidding. A general summary of hts system is given below. ; Original Bids of One Original bid of one no trump hows two nnd one-half tricks or a colmt of 12, 13, 14 or 15 for first, ccond, thlrct or fourth hand rc- ipcclivcly, distributed in three nits. It generally denies a biddable four-card suit. Original suit bid of one shows at least two and one-half quick tricks. Original Bids of Two ,Jaw, daugbtcr-ln- ' ' Original bids of two no trump show all four suits stopped and Invite partner to go to three no trump with one trick. They do not deny a biddable four-card suit. Original suit bids of two are forcing bids and require partner to keep ihe bidding open until game Is arlvcrt at even though he holds a trickless hand. They .should not be made on a hand that has more than three losing cards. Original SnH Bids of Three Original suit bids of three show a hand that will probably go game with one incard in partiur's hand They do not need normal trump support and inform partner thai there is no desire to play the hand at no' trump. Original Silt Rid* of Four Original suit bids .of four arc preemptive bids denying defensive strength and? show a hand that will lake eight tricks with the suit named as trump. O«rc»Jlinj Opponent's Bid To double an opixment's • bid shows . three- and one-half quick tricks. '. Harwell and. Miss " '• pycrcBl'an opponent's suit bid c[..orit,,with one no trump does not necessarily show the opponent's suit sloped, but requires two and one-half quick tricks. Ov^rcnlllnc an opponent's bid with suit bid shows a biddable suit with one and-onc-half to two quick tricks. If partner litis bid and then the opponent puts in a suit bid and you now bid the opponent's suit—this would show no losers in that suit nnd normal support in partner's suit, with slam possibilities. When opponent opens'with a suit bid of one and yon make a jtnnp shift bid of one more than necessary—e. g. opponent bids one heart ind you bid two spades—this shows n hand ns strong as an original :orcing two bid. . Additional Features Four-card suits are bid ahead of five or six-card suits. Six-card suits arc bid ahead of five-card suits. With two'suits of' equal length the higher ranking suit is bid first Tlie one over one is vised as a forcing bid; e. B. you bid one heart, partner bids one spade. This is a forcing bid and requires the bidding to be kept open, but makes no promise for game. All jump shift bids arc forcing bids and require the bidding to be kept open until game is arrived at e. g. partner bids one heart am you bid three diamonds. This nov shows at least five to five and one half quick tricks in the two hand and both partners arc obligated tc keep thp bidding open until gam is arrived at. There Is one excep lion to. this rule, and that is f Jump shift bid where the one ovo one may be employed; c. p. part ncr bids one heart and you bid two spades. The two spad? bid simply shows a sis or seven-card spade suit and while It requires to bid again, it' makes no promise for game. It Is used exactly the sanvs as the bhe over one.

B'.;t In the outlying riis- irlcls, the marriage ceremonies still are performed down through generations of peasants, with set rulos and regulations tnat must be respected.' The peasant bride, of course, is important. 13ut the bridegroom vies with her in the colorfulness of his costume. In one section, it Is the bridegroom and not the bride who hns the wedding bouquet. He wears U in his hat! A week before one of these village weddings, the bridegroom comes and formally asks the bride's parents for her hand. They . pretend to be quite unwilling. He j talks them into/ it, finally, whereupon they ask him point-blonk just how many horses, cows and fhcey he has. He. in turn, asks what, siz: purse she will bring him. For the bride Is in duly bound to furnish the fcallicrbrns and a sum of money In addition. together, a sort of "head-dress ]>cc." Costumes Handed Down The groom's Bedding bonquc-1 usually is made by some honored old woman of the vlllngc who hab the privilege of making all of lho:n that are needed iu a given season. They too are of artificial flo'-vcrs usually like tlie native field flowers that grow in abundance; could be picked with little effort Both the bride's wedding gown and the decorative wedding vest of the bridegroom often are inherited, sometimes being handed down for several generations. Both are ravishing in their high color. Blues in bright azure and lighter tones, scurlct and crimson reds, gold yellow, bright green, nil are used for Hie hand-work that adorns them.

Slic's Serenaded This arranged, the bridegroom's parents ti'-cn Invite the bride and her parents lo a farewell patty at their home. At this the bride is formally given away by her father. This is a signal for the friends of the bridegroom to gather oulside and when I'.c joins them, they break into song, serenading the bride.
