Garters for Men Ruled Thing Of The Pas.' Only Old Men And. 'Boobs' Wear Long, Silk Socks ' By -GWEN GIBSON DENVER, Jan. :: , 14 —UP—Style- conscious men of the rugged West believe that long, silk socks, are a thing of the past and that only old men and. "boobs" wear garters. A survey p£: the legs of 700 men attending the. Rocky Mountain area Men's Apparel' Club meeting here, made., with the help of club officers, rov?.-!led that only one o£ the 700, aa 84-year-old' tie salesman from St. Louis, was wearing supports on his socks. •:•'•', :',.•:'.' About 200 were wearing silk socks while the rest wore cashmeres : or "shorties"'; made ; of 'a wool and orlon, wool and dacron or, wool and nylon blend. : Howard Zrpple, president of the Rocky Mountain MAC. : said that one reason Westerners have been Barclay On Bridge SEEK YOTJR OWN RUFF ..MAYBE all the trump leads you can make'will not eliminate from the dummy enough trumps to prevent whatever ruffing- the declarer requires. In that event, ,' why not look around, and see'if .reversing the process might "be : «. good idea. Maybe, by not leading-trumps at all, you can .develop a chance to use one or more of your own trumps for defensive ruffing. -If , that appears the sole possible way to beat the contract, in a rubber game, try it without a qualm, 4 J104 4873 inclined to abandon garters is that "obviously they. don't fit under booUi." David Hamiey, who owns a western clothing store at .Pendleton, Ore., gave a similar reason but he- added.: "I . stopped wearing garter's with .dress clothes," also, 10 years ago because they're too darned uncomfortable." "As far as i know only old men and 'boobs' still xvear ,them,";said Marvin Conn of the Acme Boot Co.. o£ Clarksville, Tenn., "and maybe some . Easterners who. insist on dressing conservatively instead of comfortably." • A salesman for-the Rccke Sock Co., who was showing only 'elastic top styles and asked not . to be. identified, said he flatly considers .silk socks and garters "old, fashioned.", . _ .. Gene Epstein, national president of the Men's Apparel Club. .who. himself..was .wearing athletic-type cashmere socks : with an elastic top, said, however: . ., , "Even- though: elastic tops are more comfortable, there's .always the chance that your socks will ! wrinkle around the ankles." " Epstein and other delegates agreed that for the meticulous dresser, 'garters are still essential. ..."Regardless* of what the survey shows," Epstein cautio.ied, 'It must be understood that the findings don't riecessarUy represent the professional view of the MAC'S " Another check among the delegate revealed that men of the West prefer cotton shorts to those made .from silk, orlon,' dacron, nylon or rayon. "Cotton is more comfortable," .one respondent said, "and it's certainly preferable in the summer because it's absorbent;" The men were almost unanimous, 'by their own admission, in wearing shorts and undershirts. Two admitted they weze wearing long woolen underwear and one. an el: :der'lv gent, said he was wearing a one-piece sleeveless and legless cotton garment. None of the men interviewed, including the more '•. rotund ones, was Swearing a girdle. Or so they said.

Jan. 14—(W—The year 1953 produced the largest crop of honorary "Miss" titles ever recorded. This was the year in which a 17-year-old high • sc/tool girt in Memphis became "Miss Toadstool of 1953,' 1 and the year that an 82-year-old grandmother in Cleveland took over the title of "Miss Beagle Hound." In Sonora, Calif., a girl became "Miss Plywoodpecher," and a well- proportioned distaffer in San Die'go. attained,the rank of "Miss Avocado of 1953." 'Movie star Piper Laurie led off. for the Hollywood cinema colony early in the season by becoming "Miss Tinker's Dame of 1933," an appellation bestowed upon 'her by a nation-wide association of inventors holding a conclave in Los Angeles. This was quickly followed by a title given to Shelley Winters— "Miss Shell Blonde"—by a loading 1 shell and cartridge manufacturer. 1 Kathleen Hujrhos, a .statuesque blonde, was aivarded the""title "of "Miss Treecakc" by, the Pacific Co'ast Plywood Manufacturers,*and" Mari Blanchard won : , the ^well- earned sobriquet;of '"Miss Classjr.

Three trump leads would have made it impossible for the declarer to ruff a heart in the dummy. Seeing: what West was trying to do, North now led a. trump, the J. But after the Q won that, the heart 8 went to the Q and North led his spade 4 to the A, West still had a trump in the dummy and used it to ruff the heart 6. That assured his contract, as the only remaining flosable trick was to the diamond A- North, upon getting- in with the heart A, should have reckoned that West did not have four hearts, else he probably would, have bid the suit on his second turn rather than re bid spades. Thus, clearly marked with three hearts, it should have been plain that removing two by trump leads would still leave West all he needed in dummy, one. If North had done that think- I Ing-, he might have decided that j straining for a ruff of his own j was now the only chance, since 1 he had not led a spade originally, i If he consequently had led a dia- ! mond, and South had been smart | end ugh to let West take it, j North's next entry with the heart Q would have placed him in posi- i tion for a second diamond lead to j the A.
