Beaumont Women's Pitcher Collection Tops 400 Mark BEAUMONT, Tex., : . Jan.. 22 OH—" Mrs. '• Myrtle G. Prybr .and 'her daughter. Mrs. Maude Pryor Smith, 'have one of the nation's iriost unusual collections. . The two collect pitchers of. all shades, sizes and vintage, and now " have a total of 414. . , • The collection was : begun by Mrs. Pryor in 1939 when she : was presented a large, boudoir : pitcher - of white porcelain. Mrs. Pryor's. prize item ' is a. Rockinghani pitcher; a' gift, which she believes was .made -in about 1820. ' Rockingham ware first was • made on the estate of the Marquis of Rockingbam in Swinlon. Brig- land. It consists mainly of a brown glaze of varying shades and also is called brown china. ;:',','.' ''. . A heavy stoneware, jug. with' a brown top' and handlers ..another , of her treasures, also a gift. It was found in- the well of an Alabama plantation .and is of pre-Civil War origin. ' Another favorite is called "end of day." This is an antique o,paque glass pitcher with a fluted top. The, bottom is the color of a rosy •sunset, which merges:in to a lighter ' color and finally becomes a bluish white near the top. The pitchers 'stand side by side. on four tiers of shelves which line | hte. walls of Mrs. , Pryor's dining room. Many are .from . foreign countries-r-Germany, Japan,' England, Prance and Italy.™.;. , . • •; . . Mrs; Pryor also- collects rocks,;,] early American pressed glass ;and plates. But she said, "my pitchers are my real love." Barclay On Bridge * A Central Press Feature - ' r i ' 3. ' ~ MINOR GAMES' TOTJGH"^ MAKING a min'6f." : 'suifc' i game, ' . requiring 1 eleven tricks, is a tough proposition compared to scoring- • *. ten-trick game in a major or a nine-trick one in No Trumps. That is, unless the minor suit situation is very good and the major or No Trump outlook very dismal. That's why fine players frequently strain to get into one of the other contracts, even at the cost of assuming a calculated risk. They w i 11 do it in No ' Trumps sometimes, with a total- ; ly unstopped suit, if they can assume that the partner is likely to have some kind of stopper in it. 4 9 10 9 i VQ63 ;. 4 AK » 952 • 10643 + 10652 *QT5 4»AKQJ87 * (Dealer: West.

At the second table, South, who kept his solid club suit hidden, reckoned 1 he was ready for a heart 'lead and, since North could have nothing' hig-h in clubs, he was likely to hold at least three to the queen in spades. That proved right. All No Trump declarers took ten tricks, losing only three in the majors, except at one table where West led the heart 9, East put in the 10 to r-;tain his A over the Q, South won with the K and twelve minor suit tricks enabled South to score all thirteen. Minor suit game bidders all came to grief. One 5-Clubs declarer went down two because the spade A and K and heart 9 to the A brought a spade lead which South ruffed with an honor, thereby establishing West's 10 for a. later trick. The diamond game seekers went down one through two tricks in spades and one in hearts. So the only good scores went to those who attempted No Trumps in the North or the South. * * » Tomorrow's Problem 4763 * K53 41063 4.AJ95 4QJ95 V J72 495 *KQ87 4 A K 10 8 2 V None 4A872 •£6432 (Dealer: East.

Y., Jan. 22 iW-Police said it was a baby's bottle that bottled up noontime traffic at a rfowntown intersection. When one woman driver double parked, another pulled up behind her and refused to budge despite furious honking from several stymied male motorists. One of the men thought the first woman was in trouble and got out to assist. _ "I'm fixing the baby's bottle and they'll Just have to wait," he was informed. As horns continued to honk, the second 1 woman still refused to pass because "I don't want to take a chance,™ ALWAYS FIRST QUALITY! TOMORROW! SATURDAY!
