Plump Widows Attractive To Widowers fly HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (APWumping to conclusions: Plump widows have the best chance of landing another husband—because their suitors, who usually are middle-aged, figure they are good cooks. It's a good bet that a man who habitually wears only pinstriped suits is a con man, a junior diplomat, or suffers from a superiority complex. Many a woman surprised by the gift of a new fur coat from her husband would be even more surprised if she knew the real reason he bought it for her. The most suspicious people in the world are authors, bankers and drug store qashiers. If you need taxi money home, the easiest person to borrow it from is a waitress over 40. God must have loved teen -agers, because he made so many of them. Men who carry their wallets in their inside coat pocket rarely reach first for the restaurant tab, and usually have a few close friends. If you see a man light up a cigar in his own home, you don't have to ask who's the real boss in that household. Drugs that come in fancy two- tone capsules are all right for the younger generation, but older people seem to get more benefit from a medicine if it tastes bitter and is poured into a tablespoon from a dull brown bottle. Nurses have fatter legs than stenographers, but they don't get half as many runs in their stockings. Bartenders who insist on telling their troubles to their customers get few tips. Before marriage a girl tells a man his bow ties make him look boyish. After marriage she informs him they make him look silly. Even if a wife doesn't open her husband's letters, she usually holds them up to the light to examine them before handing them to him. The hardest word for most people to spell accurately is "accommodate." A guest usually winds up hungry in a home in which both the wife and husband have martinis together before dinner. Nobody ever changed his church as the result of a religious discussion at a cocktail party. Approximately one-third of the minerals and vitamins in a canned vegetable is lost when the liquid is poured off.

Thursdoy, Oct, 10, 1963 S "I don't know yet how much Jimmy loves me! So far I haven't been REALLY hungry on a date!" JACOBY ON BRIDGE Jump to Game Is Weak Rebid By OSWALD JACOBY Newspaper Enterprise Assn. When you use the artificial two no-trump response to a major opening as a bid forcing to game in partner's suit, opener's jump to game is his weakest rebid and announces a hand so weak that he would have passed an invitational limit raise to three. WEST NOrtTH *KQ74 •/ AKJ76 • 2 4653 EAST 10 410 3 A 8 2 •#10832 ¥94 • 10 6 5 • J974 4AKJ9 .AQ10872 SOUTH (D) AAJ965 VQ5 • AKQ8 3 *4 North ond South vulnerable. South 1 A 3* 5 V Pass West Pass Pass Pass Pass North 2N.T. 4N.T. 6* East Pass Pass Pass Opening lead -=-A K The next weakest bid is three no-trump which merely shows a sound opening bid. The rebid of three in his own suit shows a hand big enough to be interested in a slam while bids in any other suit are slam tries that show a singleton or void. Almost any partnership would manage to get to six spades with the North-South cards, but the Jacoby two no-trump response makes the bidding particularly simple. South is definitely interested in a slam after the two no-trump response has forced to the spade game. He starts proceedings by bidding three clubs,that shows both his club singleton and a good hand. That three-club bid is enough for North to take full control. He uses the Blackwood four no- trump to check for aces. South shows two aces and North places the contract at six spades. He knows that there is an ace missing and there is no reason to think about seven. How could South have shown a club void on this sequence? Quotes From Today's News (Reg. U.S. Pat. Off.) By United Press International HOUSTON — Travis Vlasek, whose 21-year-old brother Donald was pinned under an automobile for more than seven hours: "When we found him he was so hoarse from screaming you could hardly hear him." WASHINGTON - President Kennedy, commenting on Sen. Barry Goldwater's probable campaign for the Republican presidential nomination: "I think Sen. Goldwater has a trying seven or eight months (ahead of him) which will test his endurance and his persever ance and his agility." WASHINGTON—Turncoat mob ster Joseph Valachi, testify ing about the payment of $10,000 to have the body of slain gang, ster Eugene Giannini removed from a gambling site: "Isn't it worth $10,000 to get rid of a guy like that?" MIAMI — A weather forecas ter, commenting on the destruc tive Hurricane Flora: "She's not dead yet. But would say maybe two days, then the cold air will kill her." One of every 13 persons in the United States lives on a farm. Easy enough! He would have jumped to six hearts over his partner's four no-trump to show two aces and a void.
