She was to address the night session. Sunday the churchmen heard an American, an Asian and a German speak. The Rev. Robert W.

(AP) — Did the abductors of Frank Sinatra Jr. ealmly pass through a roadblock with the blindfolded youth in a back seat? A California sheriff says "yes," but a Nevada officer emphatically says "no." The KBI won't say one way or another. Shi 'tirr Krnesl Carlson of El Dorado County, California, said Friday he was told from Los Angeles I hat Ihe two kidnapers passed IhroURh a Nevada roadblock ,'i0 minutes after Sinatra was abducted from Lake Tahoc last Sunday night, Robert .Humphrey, chief deputy o£ Ormsby County, Nevada, said thai "every car which came through our roadblock was searched thoroughly, both in vehicle and trunk."

Unless your •hand does call for a bid of some number of no-trump you should always try lo find another call. In a recent duplicate game I played with a strange partner who had the bad luck to make several most unfortunate no- trump calls. Each one illustrated a good reason why no-trump should not be hid and each was properly punished. Here is the first one. South had no reason to bid over Kast's one diamond. His redouble had shown strength and I could be trusted to find another bid when il became my turn. Once lie bid one no- trump I raised him lo Hirer'. West opened a diamond and my queen of diamonds became of no value. F.ventually, South lost tour diamonds and a club and we were down one trick. Had I been declarer at no- trump there would have been no way to keep me from making nine tricks and 1 probably would have made 10 or 11. How could we gel lo three no- trump from my scat? Easy for good players. South would pass the one diamond call. I would go to two clubs and now it would be up to South to make a really good bid! South should bid two diamonds. This bid would not really lie a slam try, but an invitation for me to bid cither a major suit or some number of no-trump. I would bid two no-trump with my partial diamond stopper and South would raise to three. TINY TOBACCO SEEDS LOUISVILLE, Ky.
