West's, next turn. True, West could not double the one notrump with a guarantee of success — it was barely conceivable that North might be able to run *v long heart or spade suit — but if West nimself did not want to- risk a penalty double of one no- trump. then he certainly should have jump-raised to his partner's club suit instead of implying that his hand was good for nothing but & diamond contract. If West had bid three clubs instead of three diamonds. East could have taken a chance on bidding three notrump. but as it was. East was helpless— and blameless.

Can In this year's Economy Run a new Ford V-8, with Fordomatic was the official victor over every car in its field, with a winning average of 47.7643 ton-miles per gallon. This means that the sturdier, heavier Ford carried more weight, with greater gas economy per pound, than any car in its field. This latest Ford victory was scored over a rough and rigorous J,46S.8-milo route running from Los Angeles to Colorado Springs. The winning Ford threaded its way over the tough and twisting cour«,- averaging better than -50 nipli. Through the heal of Death Valley anu over the: chilling height of an 11,000-foot mountain peak ... through the gas-eating stop-and-go of city traffic and over the straight-lino open road . . . Ford proved anew its traditional reputation for economical performance. The winning Ford was n regular-production model takx-n right from the assembly line and officially impounded until the starter's gun sounded. It was no different than thousands of '56 Fords you sec on the road and in dealers' showrooms. This proves that Ford, the Performance, Style and Safely leader, leads in Economy, too! That adds up to four big reasons why the '56 Ford is worth more when you buy it, while you drive i 1 and when you sell it, too! n;,!r, i> urr4 by tonlnl i In inmrr f all , ,'„ t <ith rlnn , n ''<"'"?'"* _•)/ t!;e ,,r irrisht.
