"* J ^* How do you handle the problem of voids when using Blackwood? If you are void of a suit try to approach the slam by some other means. We told you not to bid Black,wood with a W orthless <loubleton in an und suit. Similarly don't bid four no-trump when you are void of a suit. You have various scientific methods at your disposal; All of these frequently pinpoint the right lead in case your partner can't control the suit you are afraid of. Sometimes the best way to bid that type slam is to jump right there and hope that your opponents won't find the killing lead. When your partner uses Blackwood and you hold a void there is an approved way to show the void. It is as follows: If you think your void is a good one, jump to six in the suit you would have bid five in as a normal Blackwood response. North's jump to six diamonds showed that he had one ace and was void of a suit. It also had to be a good void. It couldn't be diamonds —North had bid that suit. It shouldn't be spades — South had bid that suit. Hence, it had to be clubs. South's jump to seven hearts was still a trifle optimistic. North did not have to hold the king of hearts for his bids. As a matter of fact, South Bachelor Party Says Blonde MIAMI, Fla, (AP) - "It's the nicest collection I've ever seen," cooed a platinum blonde model as she scanned 29 wealthy bachelors who threw a posh party In a ballroom by the sea to find "the right girl." Twenty • nlrte girls chosen from 10,000 applicants, were wined, dined and presented with solid gold pins by the wile-hunting men about town on the traditional day for the girls to chase, Feb. 29, Leap Year Day. The bachelors, all of whom must earn over $25,000 a year to be a "29-er," Include a British millionaire who docked his yacht In Fort Lauderdale several years ago and just hasn't decided to move on yet, a state legislator, doctors, dentists and corporation executives for the asking. "As soon as I heard about It I raced like mad and took my picture down In person," said Joan Gordon, the smiling model in a low-cut pink gown. "I didn't believe there were so many eligible bachelors •>r.tffie girls" exactly the short-order-cook* type with dreams of meeting'"'a millionaire. An architect's consultant, a casting director for a network television show, a New York actress, a doctor of psychology, a model, an airline stewardess and a handful of school teachers were among those selected. The party • goers discussed books, plays and about the only avenue of discussion not open was the ladles' ages. "You could say I'm between 30 and 40," said one and then upon learning the median age was about 30 said: "Be a dear and change that to 27 to 35." — Hope Star photo Thursday marked completion of the annual audit of the Star's Circulation records by the Audit Bureau of Circulations, Chicago, ill.

He had to ruff the first club which left him with only three trumps in dummy. He would have to set up either his spades or dummy's diamonds and he decided to go after the diamonds because the odds favor a 3-2 break when you miss five cards. He led the ace of diamonds at trick two and ruffed a diamond with the queen of trumps. Then he led a trump to dummy's king and ruffed another diamond with his ace of trumps. Since this accounted for all the diamonds he simply played out dummy's last two trumps to pick up East's and made the rest of the tricks with the rest of the diamond suit and his ace and king of spades. (Nevtpoper Enlerpritt Ann.) Q—The bidding has been: West North East South Whitebeck Is Challenged by Rockefeller By GEORGE F. BARTSCH Associated Press Writer LITTLE ROCK (AP)-Frank Whitbeck, the Uttle Rock insurance executive who appears to be the front-runner for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination this summer, was challenged by Gov. Wlnthrop Rockefeller recently to explain how Arkansas could get along without a tax increase. Whitbeck dkln't respond to the challenge, because he already had suggested eight ways to raise money for the state without Increasing Its tax rate. ! Writing In Democratic Horizons, a magazine published by 'the Democrats for Arkansas, Whitbeck said at least a week before Rockefeller threw down the gauntlet that what was -heeded was an equalization of assessments; better of the state Income tax; a more equitable collection of the tobacco anil sales taxes; having utilities assess their properties at full value; discontinuance of sales tax credits; additional interest earnings on state bank deposits; a more equitable collection of severance taxes, and an increase in the state's share of profits from Oaklawn Park at Hot Springs. Whitbeck, who is expected to announce his candidacy this month, has been talking about these approaches in speeches all over the state. In fact, It was a speech he made at a Chamber of Commerce banquet at Manila Feb. 24 that touched off Rockefeller's remarks. Whitbeck said Arkansas had every "kind, shape and size" of tax it needed. Rockefeller Indicated Feb. 26 that he thought Whitbeck's comments were "Irresponsible." He said the state had to have additional revenues. Whitbeck agrees that there is a need for more money, and, like most Democratic members of the state legislature, he thinks the additional revenue Is needed because Rockefeller has shown "fiscal Irresponsibility." But he says that the knowledge he gained as a member of the state Economic Expan* slon Study Commission In 196365 convinced him that tax rates shouldn't be raised. "It Is time to get tough with government budgets," he wrote in Democratic Horizons. "It is time to wring the water out of every proposed expenditure, short of curtailing vital services to the public." On the equalization of property assessments, he said, "There Is such an Imbalance in assessments In most sections of Arkansas as to be embarrassing to those who make inquiry." He said he had found expensive farm land assessed at less tlian $25 an acre and some downtown properties assessed far below the proportionate assessment on residential properties. "With certain real estate and equipment depreciation schedules', It Is possible for a wealthy taxpayer to escape the payment of Income taxes," Whitbeck wrote. "Big people can do this. The ordinary citizen or working man cannot. So who gets soaked?" Cigarette distributors are given a six per cent discount on cigarette taxes for affixing tax stamps to cigarette packages. The percentage wasn't changed when cigarette taxes were Increased from six cents to eight cents a pack, which means tho distributors are getting more money, even though they theoretically are affixing the same number of tax stamps. "The amount given to the wholesaler should be reduced from 6 per cent of the total lax to 3 per cent," Whitbeck said. "This would save the state several million dollars over a period of years." Whitbeck savs the Economic Expansion Study Commission recommended eliminating the 2 per cent discount given merchants on their gross sales tax reports.
