South felt that North should have either doubled the one spade opening for takeout or at least have raised two hearts to three. North felt that he had bid perfectly pointing out that the play was extremely lucky. This didn't mollify South at all. He was still mad at North. The argument didn't impress West in the slightest. The game was duplicate and West was sure that Smith's score would be a top. Finally, West could stand it no longer. He said, "If my partner had led back a spade you idiots wouldn't be arguing. South would have made three hearts or possibly only two hearts. But now you have a top score. What more do you want?" West was right. He was also right that South would not have made more than three hearts if East had returned a spade. But four hearts can be made on a double dummy play. 1 0VERS6** DELIVERY AVAILABLE See? No springs. Volkswagens have torsion bars instead of springs. They run horizontally between <he wheels. This is how they worlc. Take a 3 -(ooi steel ruler. Hold one end in each hand and twist. let one end go. It bounces right back to shape, with« out going boing, boing, boing. The same thing happens when you drive a Volkswagen over a bump. You sit and wait for the next bounce, only it never comes. The VW has separate torsion bars on oil 4 wheels. So each wheel feels its own separate way over the road (and spends more time in touch with the road). You get a firm, solid ride, with exceptionally accurate control. Torsion bars alone aren't unique. Nor is 4-wheel independent suspen« lion. But the combination of both systems is extremely rare. You can count all the sedans that have it on one finger.

Physical Fitness Pays You Like Money In The Bank By WAYNE G. BHANDSTADT, M.D. Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Physical fitness is like money in the bank in more ways than one. You can squander U but you can also get it back. It can be built up and maintained through a combination of factors. Most important is an annual physical checkup by your doctor. Recognition of the warning signs of impending ill health can lead to preventive measures. Such measures are far more effective than treatment after a disease has become firmly established. A dental checkup twice a year is also important. All athletic coaches urge the members of Iheir teams to maintain a good state of nutrition, but you don't have to be an athlete to achieve such a state. 'The well balanced diet should include two glasses of milk and two helpings of meat a day. Bread or a cereal should be a part, of each meal and you should get. enough vegetable and fruit to make it unnecessary to use laxatives. When these requirements have been met, you can allow yourself a piece of cake, candy or cooldes if you are not overweight. As we grow older we tend to exercise less. Although a person who is over 40 does not require as much exercise as a child, he must give his muscles, heart and lungs a workout every day or their effectiveness will diminish. Fortunately the person who has allowed himself to get; soft can regain his form- Diol 242-6200 Preferred Risk Mutual Insurance Co.

Refrigerate it er fitness through a systematic program of increasing exercises. Exercise that is fun is most likely to be faithfully adhered to. This may take the form of games but for persons who are 40 or over bodily contact sports or those that; are highly competitive should be avoided. If you take up golf or tennis, don't feel that you have to rival the experts. Swimming, fishing, rowing, archery, hiking, badminton and dancing are excellent means of keeping fit. To be of value, however, they should be pursued two or three times a week and preferably every day. If this cannot be done, they should be supplemented with daily calisthenics. Exercise should lie strenuous enough to cause a good sweat but should stop short of causing exhaustion. If your heart is still fast and pounding hard five minutes after you have stopped exercising, you have overdone it and should increase your exercises more gradually. Bending forward Is fine but; bending backward and deep breathing exercises are not recommended. Rest and relaxation should not be neglected in your physical fitness program. These are favored by a change of pace, a hobby that doesn't require great, physical exertion, and through sleep.
