Declarer captured East's queen, studied the dummy. and then led a low club. Success looked impossible unless he found the club king right, in front ol the queen, and in addition he would probably need a. 3-3 break of the club suit. Obviously, the clubs lay exact ly as South hoped, but he still had to reckon with the superlative defense that West waged. West did not commit the too- common error of putting up the club king-. He stopped to think. East had denied holding the diamond jack (by playing the queen); hence, if East couldn't jet in to lead «. diamond* through the closd hand, prospects looked pretty bad for the defense. With dummy's major-suit holdings ivhat they were, the only chance w&x obviously in the club suit. So West not only declined, to put up *he club king—he carefully followed suit \vjth the jack. Dummy's queen won and the club nine wa* returned. East, wrui the 10-S equals, naturally covered, and declarer felt doom approaching. He could not afford to let the ten hold, lince a diamond would be returned through the J-5. but going up with the club ace did no good either. West,, noting East't cover of the club nine, decided that if declarer ha* a six-card dub suit—i.e., if Ease was now it—there would be no way to the contract, so he played East for an original holding of 10-8-3. On that bails,. West threw the club king on the net, and now declarer *V belp- leas. EDITOR'S NOTK: This is the final dispatch in a series by the UP Allanta bureau chief who has toured the .South lo report on the main issues in the desegregation controversy. By AI, KfKTTNF.n CHARLESTON, S.C. —UP— Tno Deep Sonlh is gravely worried about desegregation and the two big politics! parties would desperately like to gaii^e the impact it will have on them this election year, I have just completed a 3.SOQ- mile automobile lour of Dixie. talking with scores of whites and Negroes. Everywhere I went, segregation was the turning political issue. There ha? been much speculation that another third party might emerge out of the controversy as it did in 194S when South Carolina's J. Strom Thurmond carried four states on a states" rights ticket. As of this moment, the third party balloon seems to be securely anchored to the ground. The thing that cou'.J send it aloft is leadership. And leadership is 'd eking. There is a very large and determined segment of the white south's population that could make third party material. It is the strongly conservative group whose members make up the white citizens' councils and kindred groups. . Bui, politics aside, where does the 'Southgo from here on its biggest isstjp since the Civil War started at Fort Sumter. outside this city, nearly 100 years ago? It's been almost two year? since the Supreme Court gave Negroes what some are calling their "second emancipation."

Independence. Mo., would come in handy right now for several- big-name Democrats. A friendly word, that is. Harry S. Truman probably could pick up the pieces of the Stevenson boom if he were minded to become an all-out partisan in the pre-convention ' campaign. A couple of give-'em-hell speeches in California, for instance, could do wonders. Or Mr. Truman could give a nod to Sen. Estes Kefauver. whose campaign is high - balling: now through green pastures. Xone knows for sure, however. how the former President feels toward either of these candidates. Kefauver licked Mr. Truman four years ago in New Hampshire's presidential primary, Adlai E. Stevenson was nominated four years ago by Mr. Truman almost single handed. But nominee Stevenson brushed the President aside soon thereafter, Mr. T. inav not forgive and forget either of those siightful incidents. To a man up g. tree, Gov. Averell Harriman looks like the man to go for this year. He owes Harriman one, anyway. It was Karriman only in 1952 among Democratic aspirants who sought the presidential nomination on a 100 per cent Move-Harry platform. Harriman was a fair deal candidate, without qualification. The President passed over him, however, probably because the Harriman of four years ago was a political novice. He's been bloodied since by an upset defeat of Sen. Irving M. Ives in their contest for governor of New York. Mr. Truman's support, freely given, probably could assure Kefauver's nomination despite the considerable opposition to him among southern Democratic leaders. His active opposition probably could stop any one of the three. There is another Democratic senator to whom Mr. Truman owes a good deed before his .political day is done. He is Stuart Symington, fellow Missourian. Symington performed some tough jobs for President Truman, trouble shooting where there was real trouble. He Can't Use His New Convertible On Roads AUBURN, Me.. — f|fl — Few frustrations are as grent as that experiences! by a young bachelor with avslico new convertible that he can't put on the road.

"The Negro can help the white man solve this problem." he said, "but not if he is kept out of a position of leadership.
