HELEN HELP US! by Helen Bottel WIN AT BRIDGE Spade Shows Heart Void By Oswald and James Jacoby NORTH 8 AQ73 ¥9 • K J 1096 4.9853 WEST (D) EAST 4 A.I 10 * K96542 ¥ AQ864 3 ¥2 « Q72 « 853 4.6 +J72 SOUTH V K J 1075 • A4 + AKQ 104 Neither vulnerable West North East South 1 ¥ Pass Pass 2 + Pass Pass 2 A Pass Pass 3 4> Pass Pass 3 * 4 4» Pass 5 4k Pass Pass Pass Opening lead—¥ A The bidding of today's hand is interesting in that each player had a decision to make at almost every turn to bid. East might well have responded with one spade. He only held four high card points, but six-card spade suits don't grow on bushes. South might well have passed and tried to set one heart, but South's hand might well produce a game if North could make some move to help. North didn't move right away, but after East reopened with two spades, North gave a belated club raise. West got into the act and p u s h e d to three spades, whereupon North made a slightly unsound four-club bid. South wasn't supposed to go on. You don't go to game after both you arid your partner have shown a desire to try for a part score, but South decided that he had underbid his hand materially and that he wanted to play at game. South's decision was unfortunate but we can't criticize him for making it. He had made only one mild bid with his tremendous hand. West opened his ace of hearts to have a look around the table. He suspected that there might be a singleton heart somewhere and if his partner held it, West was go- my to give him a ruff. When North showed up with a heart singleton and East played the discouraging deuce, West shifted to his ace of spades. East wanted his partner to lead another heart. East could o v e r r ti f f dummy, but how could East make sure of that heart shift'.' East worked it out! He dropped his king of spades IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE HEAT, STAY OUT OF THE KITCHEN Dear Helen: A neighbor just called to warn us about an impending invitation from another neighbor. This last family just returned from a fashionable vacation spot, and each time they do (jtwo or three times a year), all friends, relatives and neighbors are called in, a family at a time, for a drink and social visit. This is their way of getting captives to impress with their trip, souvenirs, home, etc. We would be happy to see pictures of Mexico, Jamaica, and so on, if they were PLACES, and not people. But we must sit through slide after slide of Mary in her new bikini in front of "our" pool, or Jim, stripped to the waist, on "our" hotel balcony, or "us" waving goodbye to the islands. Next comes a tour of the house to see all the new acquisitions, from "our" original paintings to Suzies's latest wig. We've used every reasonable excuse, but even if they have to wait a year, our gloating egomaniacs are sure to trap us. How do we get through to these people that their pictures and tours are pleasing to them only, and no amount of liquor or sweet talk will change our attitudes?- BORED OF BOASTERS Dear Bored: Are you sure your neighbors are egomaniacs—or are you just a silly little mili- roeter jealous? If you want their friendship, you can suffer through a few dull pictures— or sit in the front row and sleep through them. And you can be kind enough to call it "misplaced sharing." But if their "our by our" report lasts all through the year, tune them out. Life's too short. . .etc.— H. Dear Helen: This concerns the two letters written by Mrs. P.U. about the elderly neighbor who runs hot water over her arthritic arms at night thus keeping others in the apartment house under his partner's ace. West was surprised, but he wasn't too surprised to lead a heart and set the contract. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) Q—The bidding has been: West North East South 1 A Dble Rdble 2* 24 3* 4* Pass Pass 5 + ? You, South, hold: AA8764 ¥410532 +54 4,3 What do you do now? A—Double. You have two trumps in addition to two aces. TODAY'S QUESTION Again East doubles your partner's spade opening. This time you hold: AA8764 ¥KJ9532 «2 4.8 What do you do? Answer Tomorrow awake. I think there are two ill people here: One with arthritis of the body, and the other with arthritis of the mind— which is curable. Mrs. P.U. should stop the back-biting and learn to walk that second mile: To be kind even to those who don't appreciate it. She says "sweet friendly towns" and "love thy neighbor" don't exist any more. How wrong she is! It's up to her to be the type of person people care about. She might find out that most people, given a chance, do react kindly to kindness-even though they're suffering from deep arthritic pain. She might even learn to sleep through the sound of running water, just as others get used to living next to railroad tracks.— MRS. E.M. Dear Helen: I was furious at your answer to Mrs. P.U., telling her to use kindness with the old water-waster. Those old fogies don't know kindness because they have rocks where their hearts are. Haven't you figured out that the woman uses her arthritis as an excuse to consume the apartment house's hot water supply? I have a mother-in-law like this. She runs cold water constantly ' because she is charged $3.00 a month flat rate, and she says she is going to get her money's worth, whether there's a water shortage or not. She scrimps on hot water, because she pays for the gas heater.—FOR MRS. P.U. Dear Helen: Somehow I think I should be the one to answer "Mrs. P.U." in her complaint about the arthritic who uses hot water over her arms at unseemly hours of the night. You see, I have both arthritis and hypersensitive hearing. I have compassion for both women inasmuch as I have miserable experiences related to both problems. But, will you please tell the complainers that they never had it so good? Let them read the newspapers, listen to the radio and watch TV. They'll find out what real suffering is— in Vietnam. None of those fellows over there deserve their agonies either, but they aren't writing back home to complain about them. If it would not hurt my own arms and hands so much, I would like to spank such whiners!— THOROUGHLY BURNED Nothing Like Recent Cases PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Students from George Fox College in Newberg, Ore,, had a run-in with the law Tuesday, but it was nothing like some of the recent student-police confrontations. The students were trying to break the ball-bouncing record, They had to stop after 73V 2 hours when a policeman at a Portland shopping center took their ball away, - Hope Star photo Dorothy Webb, President of the Arkansas Republican Women, and Juanita Stephens, secretary of the organization, were special guests of the Hempstead County Republican Women's Club at a luncheon Tuesday, May 7 at the Heritage House. Following a meal served to 29 in a setting of mixed bouquets of spring flowers, Mrs. Leon Prescott, President of the Hempstead County R.W.C., introduced the state president. She reviewed the work of the Republicans in Arkansas during the past year, and on the national level she discussed such issues as foreign aid, race relations, and the possibility of the Presidential election going to the House of Representatives for final decision. Praising the current political trend in Arkansas, she said, "Heretofore the people have often been either Democrats or quiet, but in the last few years there have arisen Republicans and Independents as well, which is good." Mrs. Webb was presented an orchid corsage prior to the luncheon by the hostess club. Both the Republican Women executives are from Little Rock, and another out-of-town guest was Mrs. Mark J. Nash of Killeen, Tex. Guards Paid for Riot Duty LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller dipped into his emergency fund Tuesday for $30,903 for the Arkansas National Guard to pay for antiriot duty at West Memphis and Pine Bluff. The guard was called out March 28-April 9 at West Memphis after Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was slain, and on April 4-9 when street disorders broke out in Pine Bluff. ; 8j!

He contended morale was low, the vessel was rusty and infested with cockroaches "and I began to wonder what I had inherited." He testified throughout the first day of the scheduled three- day hearing, saying he wanted his "day in court under proper naval proceedings" and that this had been denied him. His wife sat two rows behind him in the crowded committee room. There are no official Navy witnesses at the hearing. Resnick said the Navy has refused to cooperate or participate in the inquiry. Arnheiter, a decorated Naval Academy graduate with seven years of sea duty aboard destroyers, said his intention aboard the Vance was to "take a lax ship and make it into a fighting ship." Denying any improper conduct, he said, "My major intent was ... to take this ship into a war zone with a shipshape crew who would be proud of the ship and of whom the U.S. Navy could be proud." Arnheiter said he met resist- ence in his efforts. "Did you feel there was ac- s-iual mutiny (1 .,aboard ; the Vance.?" attorney Marvin Lewis asked Arnheiter. "Yes," Arnheiter replied, puffing on a cigar. He said he filed charges alleging mutiny over the objections of the commander of the Pacific destroyer force. Arnheiter now is shore-based near San Francisco and Alexander has a desk job in Boston. Charles Lamb wrote under the pen name of Elia.
