In other words it was a second takeout double made in response to South's original takeout double and asked South to bid a major suit. East kept the pressure on his vulnerable opponents by going to four clubs but South refused to be shut out and went to four spades. East and West decided to let South play there. West had good defense. East had very little defense, but decided not to take a sure loss at five clubs. East won the club lead with his queen and if East had been at all careless he would have attempted to cash a second club where- upon South would have made his contract. East was not going to fall into that trap. He was sure that his partner held four clubs for the jump raise so that no second club trick was available. Then where could the defense find three more tricks? One way would be if West held the ace of hearts. In that case the king of hearts lead would yield two hearts and a ruff. Therefore, East plunked his king of hearts on the table. West didn't have the ace, but he did hold something that was just as good. South had to take his ace right away and lead a trump. West produced the ace and led queen and one heart to set poor South. (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.)

Standing left to right are Mrs. Grady Lowrey, Mrs. Gilbert C. Marshall, Mrs. Tom Miller, Mrs. Henry B. Horn, Mrs, Thomas M. Johnson, Mrs. John Almond Jr. and Mrs. Edward Jarrett, wearing her wedding gown; seated are Mrs. A Madison, and, left, Mrs. John T. Mayfield. Fine Arts Club Program decoration repeated on punch tables at either side of the dining room and on another table. : The supper buffet was laid in white and centered with an elevated tier holding a large bowl of white mock orange blossoms with full foliage and pomegranate blossoms of red. Suspended over the arrangement were large butterflies devised of wicker. A wicker cricket was adjacent to the center-piece. The food was arranged in colorful designs that formed a part of the decorations. The Pan American Round Table here meets at luncheon once a month; however, in the month of April, a social is held Coordinate Windows By AP Newsfeatures Here's a wonderful, do-it-yourself way of coordinating your shaded window treatment with your wallcovering, say both, the wallcovering Industry Bureau and the Window Shade Manufacturers Association. Patterns cut out of wallcovering and pasted on the ~ will give a custom look — especially if the shade was chosen m one of the colors of the paper. Use a small, sharp scissors; cut the motifs out carefully, and arrange the pieces as a complete design on the lower section of the shade. Then apply g l ue lo the re _ verse side, one cut-out at a lime making sure that the entire surface is covered before pressing it onto the shade. Smooth out each appli- que carefully, checking that all the edges are attached carefully and that no air bubbles remain. That is all there is to it and the effect is stunning! If the wallcovering is a solid color and there is no particular pattern to cut out, a slim border pasted just- above the slat of the shade will look handsome. To cover any rough edges, the strip can be finished top-and bottom with a trimming of narrow gimp in the color of th TITLE ROLE ' NEW Y QRK (AP) — Marlon Brando will portray the title role of "The Godfather," it was recently announced by Paramount Pictures On 'Mini to Maxi "Mini to Maxie—Anything Goes" was the theme for the fashion show presented at the regular meeting of the Fine Arts Club Wednesday afternoon in the San Felipe Country Club by Mrs. S.W. Cauthorn and Mrs. Bob Cauthorn. Hostesses for the afternoon were Mrs. Henry Horn, Mrs. John T. Mayfield and Mrs. Edward V. Jarrett. The models for the fashions of "yesterday and today" included Lana Elder, Madge Horn, Joyce Terry, Josephine Mills, Ann Stool, Kay Cauthorn, Sandra Cauthorn and Lourene Jarrett. Mrs. S.W. Cauthorn in her narration said "In 1937 Laver, a British historian, observed: The same costume will be indecent 10 years before its time, shameless five years before its time; smart in its time, dowdy one. year after its time, ridiculous 20 years after its time, quaint 50 years after its time, romantic 100 years after its time and beautiful 150 years after its time.' "And today we are going to give you living proof. Progressive women at the end of the 19th Century fought hard for feminine emancipatib'ri but they did not banish such feminine tricks as make up, wigs to hide their baldness, ornaments to puff up hair, false hair attached to their hat, artificial eye lashes, beauty _ spots and anti-wrinkle bandages. At the end of the 1800s women's clothes showed little sign of emancipation" Mrs. Cauthorn continued. "The waists were still excessively tight and skirts were long and hampering. The middle of the ' century saw the rise of a great dressmaker, Englishman Charles Worth, who was to set the pattern of the fashion world." 'Models showed fashions of long ago alternating with similar fashions of today. Fashions shown were from closets of some of the members and Miss Lourene Jarrett modeled a dress belonging to her great aunt, Mrs. Theodore Savell of Sonora, sister of Miss Jarrett's grandfather, R.L. Miers. The gown is in the Miers Museum hi Sonora and was loaned for the occasion. Mrs. Elder showed a dress purchased by Mrs. Joe ' Kerr's grandmother, Mrs. Mary Louise Beidler, on a trip to Paris, France, in the 1800s, and another fashion showed a sheer wool dress that was a part of the trousseau for Mrs. Nora Horn in 1900; Mrs. Horn was the mother of Henry Horn and an aunt of Mrs. John T. Mayfield. Mrs. J.T. Quigg, a guest, played the piano during the fashion show. Refreshments were pld fashioned banana splits and pink lemonade. Vari colored rosebuds were on the tables. Favors were miniature bottles of cologne and bath powder. U I] -U9' ^+ *', axi protection at mi We Cover it All or any Part of it.... Whatever Your Insurance Needs See. <7 Have you had enough?
