"West opened the six of hearts, and dummy won with the king. I had twelve tricks in top cards, and had to decide whether to set up a club or ruff a heart in dummy. "If clubs -were 5-2, they could not be set up. If the hearts were 5-2, it was still possible that the player with only two hearts could not over-ruff dummy's ten of spades, "On this reasoning, I cashed the ace of hearts and led the eight of trumps to my ace. This was stilJ another chance; the jack of spades might fall on this trick. "Then I led a heart from my own hand, and West naturally stepped up with the jack 'of spades to set the contract. "Was my line of play correct but Unlucky, or incorrect and unlucky?" Incorrect, I am sorry to say. The best play is to run four rounds of trumps at, once, discard- Ing low diamonds from the dummy. This beginning gives the opponents some light chance to make «, mistake. NORTH rt» 4108 »AK AJ72 1 VQI0985 4Q9S43 B»sl ' SaaOl"- West i>ass 14 .. Pass fass 8 4 South then cashes the top clubs and ruffs * club, hoping for a 4-3 break. If the clubs are 4-3, he can set up a long club in dummy. If the clubs fail to break, South leads a heart to dummy's ace, hoping that the queen will drop. If this break fails to materalize. South ruffs another low club and then leads his last trump in the hope of developing a squeeze. As the cards lie, with all suits breaking badly, South still makes '*nls "grand slam. When the last trump Is led,' West has the high club and two diamonds. He must keep the club, so he discards a diamond. Dummy can then discard the six of clubs, keeping ace-jack of diamonds. This puts tt up to East, who has the queen of hearts and two diamonds. If he discards the queen of hearts, South's jack wins a trick. If he discards a diamond, dummy's are clears the suit, and the jack of diamonds wins the last trick. Social Hall, must be made before j Wednesday.

ROME— t/P)— Five years after the big split hi the party, the mair) force of the anti-Communists have adopted their third name. The group originally adopted the nsme "Italian Socialist Labor Party". The initials by which the party became known here "PSLI". The Italian pronunciation of "PSLI" was close to "Piselli", Italian for "little peas". This was the popular name given the first group. A year ago the PSLI and another anti - Communist Socialist splinter group, joined forces. The | newly formed party was named "Socialist Party — Italian Section of Socialist International". Now the first annual congress of the party has adopted a new name — "Italian Socialist Democrat Party." 100% French Imported ANGORA Scarlet • Yellow Dark Green • Blue Pink C White • Royal Blue FREE INSTRUCTION BOOKS FAY'S ART AND GIFT SHOP Open Eveningi 215 S. tee St. Phone 873 \For QUICK RELIEF of SORE THROAT DUE TO COLDS DEPEND ON TONSILINE To Super Special! « Make Room For New Stock, All Our Regular Greeting Cards thot sold for TOc each, now Assorted) 12 to a Package They are a REAL Bargain Ave Maria Shop » 37 Frederick Street « Q—The bidding has been: South West North East 1 Heart Pass 1 Spade 2 Clubs 7 You, South hold; Spades 9-7-52, Heart.«, A-K-9-4-2, Diamonds K-Q-8.
