Those present were Mr. and Mrs. John B. Grover of Freeport; Mr., and Mrs. Larry Grover of Michigan Robert Grover of Albion and Mr. and Mrs. Ray Sim- US Spacemen Have Fun as They Train By ALVIN B. WEBB Jr. CAPE CANAVERAL (UPI) — The Russians are beating (be United States in manned conquest of space—but it's a safe bet they aren't having half as much fun a! it. America's No. 1 spaceport at. Cape Canaveral is tension laced with tomfoolery—a strange place where strange tilings might be expected to happen. They do. Like (be time a Mercury astronaut spiced up an otherwise boring "dry run" by suddenly clutching at a gantry elevator and yelling: "No! I don't want to go!" The nation's press was on hand for that one. . Or the evening the U.S. Navy managed to lose a boatload of newsmen at sea for an hour when four olficers were unable to find the port from five miles offshore. But none of it quite matched the recent evening when the Fenwick Aeronautics' and Space Administration (FASA) came to town, recruited virtually everyone from U.S. astronaut L. Gordon Cooper Jr. on down, and laid claims to beating both Russia and America to the moon. The slightly touched-up "documentary evidence" was a movie, "Mouse on the Moon," which related the story ol how the linv, mythical Duchy oi Grand Fenwick started out to seek U.S. financial aid for plumbing and ended up by landing the first astronauts on the moon. Grand Fenwick may also be remembered as the 24-square- mile country that, in an earlier movie, decided that the best way In cci U.K foreign ard was to go to war with and get beaten by America. The movie may never win an Academv Award. But from Cooper on down, those spaceporlers whose lives are wrapped in and around missiles, rockets and space travel found it a delightful spoof of their daily headaches and heartaches. It was perhaps the type of fun that "outsiders" might find hard to comprehend, especially amid the scientific fame and fortune that is Cape Canaveral. But the Cape isn't a place you would want to live just for fun. After the initial glamour wears off—and it invariably does—it takes a high degree of dedication to keep a top-grade scientist or technician or missile worker here to put men and machines into space.

Most players who use Black wood phiy that any four no-trump bid is a request for aces. This is simple indeed, but (he experts have found many cases where they want to use four no-trump as normal bid — not an artificial one. For instance, here is a band from the recent tournament at Columbia, S. C. South can make four no-trump and East will go down one at four spades. The bidding at all tables started with one heart by South, two clubs by North and seme number of spades by East. When East chose to bid four spades South would double and North would have no choice, but to leave it in and the North-South score of plus 100 would turn out to be a poor one. At a few tables the bidding went as shown hi the box. On this sequence North could afford to bid four no-trump after his partner's double of four spades. There would be no way for South to read the four no-trump bid as anything but a desire to play that contract since North had previously been satisfied to bid only three no-trump after his partner bid two.
