Once he has been appointed, it .would be hard to remove him, the longer he stays in the stronger he will become, because of the power vested in him. If he was to decide against an in,- dividual, or group you might just as well throw up the sponge, so to speak, because of the requirements necessary to override his decisions. What I think is that a way should be made to make it easier for people to seek public office. I believe there are many people who would become good politicians if it was not so difficult to" become a political candidate. I think that the solution of this condition is a direct primary system, which is simply an election within the vari ous parties for the office which you intend to represent the party you belong to at the ensuing election, lit would be conducted by setting up the machines and letting the registered party members vote for whom they pleased directly instead .of. for delegates. Under this system every candidate • is -responsible .to every member:of his party for his actions while In. office. .; In closing I would, like to say that as I see the Charter it" conceals too many booby traps, so to speak, it weakens the power of the ballot. I think the people need and should have more to say on the nomination and election of. candidates in their parties. Their vote should be strengthened in every way possible. Under this system. we need, never fear .Communisht or any other ism that might weaken our nation." Respectfully, (Signed) JAMES FARREN. t JACOBY ON BRIDGE + By OSWALD JACOBY Written for NEA Service Here's ARule Good To Know Written for NEA Service THERE/ are certain situations that every good player should memorize. A few times a. year they are bound to confront you, and if you're ready for them you save many hundreds or points. Keep your eyes on the West cards in the hand shown today. One of these important. situations will soon develop. West, opened the jack of diamonds, and the defenders easily rattled off twp tricks 1 in this suit. South ruffled the third diamond, led a club to /dummy's jack and returned .a. low.spade: East played NORTH V A1096 4 #KJ A-oae ''' . * J 10874 *.942 EAST *K5 VQJ52 Smith 2* 4*. 48753 SOUTH(D) 4AQ872 V73 • * 95 * A,Q 10 6 N-Svui. West North Pass 2V Pass 3 * Pass Pass Opining lead-*4 East Pass Pass. Pass the five of spades, South finessed the quen, and West made the correct play! without any hesitation. Figure it out for yourself. What happens if West plays the six of spade?? South looks the spades over very carefully and sees that his only hope is to catch the king of spades alone at this point. If fiast still has K-10 or K-9, a trump trick must surely be lost. Actually West properly played tfce nine, of spades. This gave South something to think about. Apparently West had started with the 10-9 of spades, and. now he had the blank ten left. ACTING on this reasonable assumption, South led ; a club to dummy's king and returned the jack of spades. He hoped'that this would continue the finesse through East and at the same time pick up West's ten. East covered the jack of spades with his king and South .won. with ace, but now West's ten was established. Since, the defenders were bound to win a heart trick sooner or later, the contract was set. Now, all you memorizers, study the West hand. When you hold three to ten in the trump suit, make sure to play _the middle card on any flrst-rourid" finesse. It may not always worky but it costs nothing to try.. Q—With neither side vulnerable, your partner deals and .passes and the next player, also passes. You hol'd: ISpades ' pK-9-8-6-3, 'Hearts J-7-4, Diamonds A-8-3, 'clubs Q-2. What do you do ? A—Pass. Your hand is not worth a normal opening bid and you cannot indicate a desirable opening lead.

What do you do? • • Answer Tomorrow + THE DOCTOR SAYS:- By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M. D. Written for NEA Service Painful Pleurisy May Yield To The New Germ Killers No one who has had an attack of acute pleurisy ever forgets it. Although it is not as painful as kidney stones or some other things, pleurisy is | most, unpleasant experience and often' lasts for 'quite a long time, too. This .disorder gets its name from the delicate membrane which surrounds the lungs called the ,pleura. If the pleura becomes inflamed, .which may be the result of infection or for no apparent cause, there is pain felt in the chest. Also, there is usually a sharp dry cough which the .victim dreads because it makes the pain worse. Eyen .ordinary, breathing or any other motion."of the ciiegt is likely to bring on sharp pair.1. An attack of i pleurisy is apt to begin after exposure to excessive cold, though it may come on at any time. It; is sometimeii only* one sign .of some other disease of the lungs such as pneumoniai Even if the pain is more or less bearable it isn't smart to pretend lo be big and strong and ignore the whole thing. Rest in bed as soon as possible is not only a lot more comfortable !but a lot safer. And it is wise) too, to get an X-ray and other diagnostic tests before too long.- CHRONIC STAGE The severe pain of acute pleurisy is not likely to last long under proper rest and treatment, but unfortunately pleurisy often has a tendency to become chronic. This can go on and on with a good deal of discomfort and interference with normal life. Furthermore, fluid sometimes gathers ;in the space/ between the pleura and the lungs. This mayjor may absorbed inHime and sometimes it has to be removed with a'.needle. ,, ' . One good thing about that because it is usually infec-; tious (but: not catching), it sometimes yields to the new/ gei-m killers. - t Questions and Answers >Q—When was the Army Nurse Corps, organized:?. A—Ddring the Spamsh-Amesioan War, the government hired its first professional nurses for the Army. That actually was the start of the. Army Nurse Corps although it was not until Feb. 2, 1^01 that. Congress adopted the legislation that established the Corps as an aiihorized part of the military. Q—What commercial use Is made of the black; locust wood?

"My partner and I were able to make two canastas, score approximately 900 points and catch, our opponents with a minus 500. The fact that they were minus 500, with two re'd treys, is evidence that one of them was very close to a meld. At the conclusion of this hand we had 2400 points and they had 3900 points.
