They make lots of overtricks that way and win many duplicate games, but they aren't very successful in •rubber bridge play. The winning rubber bridge pi ay er doesn't despise overtricks but his main concern Is to bring home his contract. An overtrlck is ' worth 20 or 30 points. A game •contract is worth several ; hundred. The- man who wants •overtricks will win the first trick with dummy's ace of hearts, run off four trumps to see if someone will be nice enough to discard clubs. No one Is likely to help him iout that way so he will go after clubs himself. He will .discard his losing heart on the third club and lead a diamond toward his king. West will top ;it with the ace and South will complain about the bad luck •of running into a 4-2 club break and also finding the ace v of diamonds in the wrong spot. He will undoubtedly point out that with good luck he' would' have made 12 tricks. \ An expert rubber bridge player will make his contract. He .will draw only two rounds of'frumps:: while Ueaving the ;ace in dummy. Then he,will cash two high clubs; ruff a low club; enter dummy with the ace of trumps to cash the last two clubs and finally lead the diamond. He knows that when you miss five cards in a suit it will divide 3-2 some 68* per cent of the tune while the chance that six cards will sppt 3-3 is less than 40 per cent.

Answer Tomorrow Bandits get $300 at Burger Chef Two men took $300 at gunpoint from the Burger Chef restaurant at 1639 Main St., at 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, according to Alton Police. Dianne • McGuire, night manager, and two other employes, described the man with the gun as about 18 to 20 years old, 5 feet 9 inches tall with long, dark hair, heavy beard and a small mustache. The second man was described as Spanish appearing, 18 to 20 years old, and about 5-feet-4-inches tall wearing plaid jacket. The men apparently waited until closing time but had been observed by employes around the building a half hour earlier. The two had gone to the back door of the drive-in and asked to speak to the manager, as one employe was putting the money in the office. It was then that the em- yes wgre shown the gun rjbed as a blue, stubby pistol. Tfee men {led in a J952 or )993 Plymouth with primer paMonit.

Also Tuesday the Tri- Counties District Council of Carpenters filed suit against contractors who made an agreement with the Metro- East Labor Council, which has conducted the training of the black workers. "There seems to be a concerted effort on the part of unions to refuse to utilize black personnel in the crafts," Fred Tcer, director of the East St. Louis Model Cities Music is religion? PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — The popularity of rock msuic festivals shows that young people are on a religious quest, says Billy Graham.
