I looked doubtful. For a long time I have believed that all bridge experts have a few bats flying around in their belfries. For example, take the national tournament that will be held in Detroit next .week. , About a thousand experts from all over the country will plunk down good money on-trains, planes and hotels to get together and try to outsmart each other in the toughest kind of bridge competition. Those who win will Ret a certain amount of glory, but nothing that xvill pay a grocery bill. WKat's more, they love it. To tell the truth, so do I--but then I'm just as crazy as the rest of the experts. To get tacK to the hand, Fishbein said he had shown it to a dozen experts and also to a dozen average players. "All the average players make the hand," he chortled, "and all the exports are down at trick two." Every declarer quite properly wins the opening spade lead with the king. All the average players then lead a trump. East can take his ace of trumps, but can do nothing to defeat the contract since West is then trumpless. South can easily regain the lead to draw trumps, after which he has tricks to burn, AH the expert* see that West's 3ead is a singleton spade. They also see that a trump lead win allow East to win and lead a second spade. Then West will ruff-unless he has a singleton trump as well as a singleton spade. To guard against the spade ruff, all the experts lead a heart at the second trick. The plan is to win in dummy and cash the ace and king of clubs in order to discard the six and ace of spades from the iouth hand. It looks like a fine idea, but East ·uffs the heart at trick two, and all the experts are automatically set. As a matter of fact, the ex- jerts take quite a beating, since he defenders then get a spade ruff, a second heart ruff, a spade rick, and the ace of trumps. 3own four on a hand that any average player makes. It should be pointed out, as Fishbein agreed, that East should double six diamonds as a signal for a heart opening lead. Then South s surely set--expert or not. YOUR THROAT 1$ PWW-- RiFR ff QUICK-B6SOR6 Strength For Today By Earl L. Douglass NXERNATIONALISM ..WITHOUT RELIGION A six-foot bronze statue of the Zeus of Artemisium has been presented to the U. N. by the government of Greece. It will be placed n a landscaped area at the U. N. headquarters. The significance of the gift is not entirely apparent. It is probably just a reminder to the world that the ancient Greeks were the most artistic people the human race has produced. In other words, the statue probably represents well- justified national pride in a noble heritage.

AND CHEER PRISCIIXA'S POP One Good Turn--« religions significance, then that significance is bad, from the'Juda- istic-Chrislian standpoint. We are Dart of a Christian civilization. There are many nations in the U. N. which are not Christian, but no nation today worships Zeus. Furthermore, the nations of the world are almost unanimously opposed to idolatry. This may be making too much of a small item, but it does raise the question whether we are going to try to take religion out of our national dealings and say that we can have both private and public goodness without any reference to religious faith. If we are, then we are going against the teachings not only of Christianity but of every other religion which in the world today is influencing the minds arid hearts of men.

Now truly, whether old or new, good friends are to be prized, and certainly as years accrue their worth is emphasized. New friends can be of priceless sort and old ones quite the same, for friendship, whether long or short, is worthy of the name. N. A. LUFBURROW. Cranberries are found only on the ArnoriMn continent.
