Against any lead but Hearts South will have plenty of time to go about the business of setting up nine tricks, but the heart leiad is just about automatic whether North or South is declarer. South has to win the first heart. If he ducks, both his ace and king will fall together on the second heart lead and he will have to scramble for his nine tricks because this second heart lead has set up three tricks in the suit for the defense. It is hopeless to go after spades. South can't set up more than three tricks in the suit. He can set up three extra diamond tricks to give him a total of eight tricks, but that will leave him one short. He must go after clubs and if that suit breaks 3-3 he can add five club tricks to his one spade, two hearts and two diamonds, a total of 10. As you can see, clubs aren't going to break evenly and South will have to give up two tricks in order to bring home the rest of the suit. Furthermore a suit will divide 3-3 less than 40 per cent of the time. However, South has a better play at his disposal. He wins the heart lead m dummy and leads a club toward his hand.

International Chairman French Smile But Students Are Rioting PARIS (AP) - The old Majestic Hotel Is all spruced up for the Vietnam peace talks, radiating the anticipation of change that is the mood of Paris this spring. Flowers and plants went Into the gray stone biilding by the truckload Thursday. Delicate pastel tapestries went up on the walls. Ushers smiled, and even the policemen laughed when confronted by a crowd of foreign newsmen anxious to see the conference room. France is following peace talk developments with pride, but it is student rioting, not Vietnam, which is mainly preoccupying the French this spring. The riots got far worse than expected, and the government Is upset that they have come at a time when Paris is hopefully becoming "the capital of peace," Paris Is enjoying one of the earliest springs in memory. The chestnut trees are in rich leaf and set off white and pink can- die-like blossoms. The 32 by 39 foot conference room, known as committee meeting room No, 5, is used practically every day for some kind of international conference. Its capacity is 56 persons, says the descriptive pamphlet. For the peace talks, it is set up with about 40 chairs. The rectangular table, partly covered with light green artificial leather, will separate the two sides by about 10 feet. Nine steel tube and artificial leather armchairs were pulled up on each side, with 12 more against the walls. Each position has earphones for the simultaneous interpreters, who work behind wood panel and windowed booths against the wall opposite the tapestry. The room looks directly onto street level of narrow Rue La Perouse, which will probably be closed during the talks. The three tall double windows are protected ou the outside by ornamental iron griUwork. Mrs. Walter White, County Extension Homemakers International Chairman, and Mrs. Alphonso Denham, Assistant Extension Home Economist, discuss other countries and educational programs studied by homemakers to encourage better understanding, good will and friendship between women of this country and women of other countries. Extension homemakers participate in a program that recognizes the family as the center of our society with increasing responsibilities.

Arkansan Keeps Vow to Wallace MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP>Mrs. C. E. Sanders of Arkadelphia, Ark., was in Montgomery Thursday to keep a vow she made 25 years ago to George Wallace. At that time, when Wallace was an Army Air Corps trainee, Mrs. Sanders said he told her to help take care of his wife, Lurleen. Mrs. Sanders awoke early Thursday to check preparations at the cemetery for the burial of Gov. Lurleen Wallace, who died in her sleep Tuesday morning after a two-year battle with cancer. Mrs. Sanders recalled the days a quarter-century earlier when the Wallaces spent their honeymoon at a house she ran as a volunteer worker for servicemen. "I had their official wedding dinner for them," she recalled, "That first wedding dinner was a large plate of fried chicken. And that's what we have every time I would eat with them." "Their 25th wedding anniversary would have been this month," said Mrs. Sanders, who greeted Wallace when he took his presidential campaign to Little Rock last month.
