By OSWALD JACOBY Written For NEA Service Bridge players who live in the big cities take it for granted that people who come from smaller cities can't possibly be first class players This quaint idea is not supported by the tournament records. There are great players all over the country, in rural districts small towns, and cities of all sizes You coulan't want a better proo! than the case of Mr. and Mrs. William Thieman who came to last year's national tournament from Colorado Springs to place second in the national mixed pair championship. They were so pleased with theii first experience in national competition that they are expected to try again next week when the championships are held in Detroit. Today's hand, played by the Thiemans ,,'* a recent rubber bridge game, shows a neat point of defensive co-operation. Mr. Thieman hit upon the nine of;spaues as his opening lead. This was a somewhat lucky choice, .since he had a mental toss-up be- twen the nine of spades and the seven of hearts. The heart lead would have given declarer time to make the contract; but the spade lead gave the defense a chance to snatch five tricks in a hurry. The important point was to avoid undue'haste. When dummy played the jack of spades at the first trick, Mrs. Thieman (holding the East cards) played the encouraging ten of spades instead of winning the trick. Declarer could count on winning two spades, three hearts, and only three tricks in whichever minor suit he attacked firs*. This meant that he had to work on both minor suits to develop nine tricks. After winning the first trick in dummy with the jack of spades, Declarer led a diamond.

TV-'-i Enough Forage For Animals Necessary Winter pastures will only be exercise lots unless theie is a surplus for the livestock to grate. If there is enough forage on the ground for the animal to get a good mouthfull each time it takes a bite, the pasture should be grazed. Otherwise it's better to keep the animals off the field. That's the advice of Stanley Stabler, Extension agronomist at the University of Maryland. Dry weather over most of the State in late summer and early fall reduced the amount of pasture surpluses available for grazing. Bluegrass, hav and lespedeza will provide good winter pastures if there is enough forage for the animals. Otherwise, it is a good idea to supplement pasture with hay or silage, according to Mr. Stabler. If not grazed too closely, or when fields are wet small grains are hurt vpry liHls by winter or early spring grazing, Mr. Stabler says. But he points out that yields will be cut if grazing is extended into late March or April. Over-grazed, bare fields will be winter stubble erosion than those protected xvith a good blanket of sod. Within certain limits, the higher or longer the radio station antenna, the higher the efficiency.
