Ely didn't like to have .too many forcing bids. At the : • same time, he described some Culbertson system bids as :. -J9.44 per cent forcing. - . Apparently South's jump to ..three hearts was one of those -almost forcing bids. In any ., event, North did pass. A spade -Jead would have held South to ... -his contract but West opened a diamond. South got to discard one ipade on a high diamond and with trumps breaking 3-3 wound up with an overtrick and a top score of plus 170. At all other tables in the game, South chose to raise clubs as his second bid. Some North players got all the way to five. Others stopped short of game. West had a natural spade lead. The club bidders made 10 tricks for either plus 130 or minus 100 depending on how they had bid. This hand is another example of duplicate luck. That jump to three hearts ranges an absolute force with some experts all the way down to a mere invitation to partner to bid again. A Nevada reader wants to know if notrump has always been scored at 40 for the first trick and 30 for each subsequent trick. No, it hasn't. In Vanderbilt's original scoring it counted 35 a trick. It was changed to eliminate five point scores. (For a copy ol JACOBY MODERN, stnd tl to: "Win at Brldgt," c/o this nt*sptp»r, P.O.

Wcsl Germany lUPIi — Posts operated by the American Legion in West Germany may lose the slot machines which subsidize both Wagoner Book Printing Scheduled ROCHESTER - The Fulton County Historical Society will reprint a book on the history of the Wagoner family. Originally printed in ISHI by Clark R. Wagner. Arlington, Ohio, the J>ook traces the Wagoner f also spelled Waggoner and Wagneri family, from John Waggoner who migrated -in the !700's from France to America. According to historical society officials, (here are many Wagoners and related persons in Indiana and throughout .the Midwest. Demand for this history has been great, officials stated. Information on ordering may. be obtained through the Fulton County Historical Society. " Seventh and Pontiac streets, Rochester, 46975, their club operations and (heir ^patriotic and charitable activities. One post also is in trouble, for non-payment of taxes, while the post in West' Berlin has been ordered to hold a new election in the wake of a management dispute. William "Bo" R. Williams. ;m Army K-7 (sergeant first class i who,., is . Commander of (he Legion's Department of France, which includes all of the-Legion's posts in Europe, agrees some of them are in difficulty. "There are problems," Williams said in an interview. "We're .aware of, them.. And we're going to take posiiivc action. Some action we're . 'taking today. Some things are programmed. But it is no! that we're • sitting here with the shutters pulled or that we cannot see the trees for the forest. We know the problem. we have identified the problem. atid action is to be taken. It i.s planned action." About Mofthel!) Legion posts in West Germany and ' West Berlin,, support .their club, patriotic and 'charitable ac- 'tivities in part from the proceeds of American-made "one-armed bandit" slot machines. But the Interior Ministry of the State of Hesse, in which a large par , of lne American Army in Germany is stationed and where, u number of the Legion's posts arc located, curlier, this year declared the slot- machines illegal and ordered police to remove them by July 15. -'•.': Concessionaires who operate, restaurant, bar and slor machine facilities in the Legion clubs appealed the decision. " Franz Nowak. the responsible official in the Hessian State Ministry of Interior, says he instructed police to return slot machines to ihe clubs from which they had been removed and allow them to continue in use (here pending outcome of the concessionaires' appeal. "We have taken, due process." says Williams. "What we did was to stay the order. Bui if they say take them out. wetakethcmout." Henry Slacewicz. concessionaire at Rhein Main Post No. n located in a huge lodge south of Frankfurt's llhein Main civilian airport and U.S. Air Force base, confirmed that "we have a stay of execution, our basis being that we are, a private club, we are not open (o the German public, and thai therefore the (German i public safely regulations don't realty bind n Legion post home. " Nowak counters - that the Legion is subject to all West German laws and that the law- forbidding "high win-high loss automatic gambling devices" applies to private clubs. tooT The outcome of the dispute will affect the.Legion's future in Germany because income from the slot machines allows post "home" concessionaires (o offer food and drink at prices below those -charged by military clubs on U.S. military bases or by German cluhs .and helps to pay (he costs of the Legion's many patriotic and charitable activities. Founded in l'J19. the American Legion is the oldest and. with 2.8 million members. Ihe largest U.S. veterans organization. Membership is open to soldiers, present and former, who served during World Wars I or II, or during the Korean or Vietnam conflicts. The Department of France comprises all of the Legion's 2-4 posts in Europe - 1.4 of them in W r est Germany and Wcsl Berlin. Williams, assigned (o the 32nd Army Air Defense Command in Darmstadt, 'became Department Commander on June 26. to serve tor one year. In addition (o the possibility of losing the slot machines now in the'clubs. Williams is coping with a lax problem that developed in Bitburg. with' a • management dispute in West Berlin, and with a membership problem in Hanau. Bitburg Past No. 20. located in the middle of a complex of U.S. military bases in the Eifel Mountains, is the largest postjn- the department, with 2.200 members. Early in 197;(. (he Bilburg Post decided to install slot machines. not nor did they ever consider registerinc themselves to pay taxes,"' Winkler said in an interview. '"They were not ever told a! any lime that while they were domiciled on the <Gor- manrcconomy. that they had to pay German (axes. "About 197-), when I was in my life insurance office in Bitburg. a gentleman came up to me and said he wanted to talk- to me about the Legion's tax- situation arid 1 said we didn't pay any. He said, 'don't you think it's a bit late?' He then started throwing out figures like 110,000 • marks. 200,000 marks, 280.000 marks, that was the highest figure he gave me." Robert H. Winkler. com- •mander of the Bitburg Post, says that because the post could not afford them, "several individuals- went together to purchase slot machines, and our Legion benefits to the tune of about $3.000 to $4.000 a month from them." Winkler became involved in legion affairs in Bitburg in 1971. nine years after the post was formed. "The regime at that lime (in l!*>2t. through ignorance, did The argument with the tax office has raged since then. Winkler says the Bitburg post now withholds wage taxes from its employees' pay and in addition pays business lax and turnover tax. At the same lime, it is depositing a sum of money toward whatever delinquent tax payment will have to be made. The German tax authorities: wiped out the period from 1962 through 1972 and arc talking only about taxes due from Jan. 1. 197:). which may amount to about Ki.ooo marks ($3f».GOO).
