.SUNDAY REGISTER M» y 10, E FRONT Mmfaik Clatbott Just What Should B.P.W, Marks 50 Years I f SAYS here as a warning to any superstitious young lady who's plahrifrig a Juh6 wedding that she must neither dress her bridesmaids in green nor room wear leives in her own hair. " .But that's really silly. Both things sound very pretty — and, together, they scheme. . \ *••'»•* '+ B UT tHERE is one thing . that the June bride might well watch out for. She might at least think twice before marrying a man who is so .tall that two or three times a day he could see if any dust had gathered on top of a 6-foot refrigerator. 4 t 4 * A COUPLE of Saturdays ago, Al Levich dialed a number for Eddie Webster's Restaurant. "I'd like to make a dinner r e s e rvation" ~ for four," he told the young woman who answered his call in such a pleasant voice. . "t'm sorry — 1 just got home from the hospital . today with my new baby, so I'm not able to accept any reservations," the young woman said happily. "But if you'd care to call at some later time—" * * « + I F THE women at-those local delicatessen counters wouldn't mark the price with a black grease crayon on the plastic top of the coleslaw or potato salad carton, the housewife would have a fine little airtight container for her refrigerator. The little round cartons are so pretty, it's a shame to deface them. And. they're so sturdy, they wash up as good as new. * « * * TjlAMILY LIFE: One wom- I 1 an's offer on Bob Williams' Tuesday morning "Trade Central" WHO radio show brought me upright on the towel aboard which I was sunbathing.

Front Row appears Mvi timet weekly In Th* DM Molne.i Trlbunt, w- By Giorgio Belladonna, The Fine Italian Hand Look Smart! By Harry Juster TT IS NOT too difficult to Uh- Jl derstand -why a wedding often brings oh pxmling questions regarding the proper clothes for the bridegroom and other men in the wedding party. After all, this is no everyday affair and the parties involved can't be expected to be experts on all the sartorial details. So, for wedding participants who may be in somewhat of a quandary about the,",, proper male attire, .today's ' column lists the guidelines to • ' follow. - For a FORMAL EVE-. : N IN C, WEDDING, with the bride wearing a long-trained gown, the bridegroom appears in the most formal of evening attire: A black tailcoat with matching trousers, white for- mal waistcoat (vest), white wing-collar shirt, white bow tie, black patent leather shoes. The best_man,..ushers and fathers dress" in a'Similar manner. For a SEMFORMAL EVENING WEDDING, .the bridegroom wears a single or double-breasted tuxedo, formal shirt, bow tie with matching cummerbund, black shoes and hose. If preferred, a pastel color shirt can replace the traditional white. From about mid-May to mid-September, a white dinner jacket is usually worn in place of the tuxedo coat. The jackets, ties and cummerbunds of the other men in the wedding party should be similar in color. The bride- groQmlsJDOUtonniere is white; the' others can go to any shade. T HE FORTUNATE choice of an opening lead gave the Italian team, an advantage of 10 I.M.P. against the French team in the 1967 World Championships. The final bid at both tables was "three no-trump, but a five club bid would have been a great deal better. In the closed room, Belladonna ppened jack of diamonds. Svarc won with dummy's queen and led a small club which Avarelli ducked.

In the open room, Pariente, after long hesitation, chose to • open a spade and Forguet had no trouble at all in tak- ing'10 tricks. E VEN IF Par i e n t e had opened a -diamond, For- quet would probably have made the contract. The bidding gave him some advantages that Svarc did not have. The determining factor was Pariente'? first pass. After he successively bid two suits to the level of three, the possibility that he could be holding two aces was ruled out, for with two aces, and "two fairly long suits, he would undoubtedly have opened the bidding on the first. In the case of Pariente's opeoiag^f the jack of dia- opponents' bands or if Pa- riente had held six diamonds to the jack and the club ace. South, in fact, with a doubleton diamond headed by the ace, would have been blocked. At the other table, Svarc, taking Belladonna's, opening- lead into account, placed the two missing aces in his hand and very rightly put up the diamond queen on the first round. moods, Forquet's best play would have been to duck in dummy. -That play would have allowed him to win either if the cards were distributed as they were in the Colored Women's Clubs Scholarship Applications for a $350 scholarship offered by the Iowa Association of Colored Women's Clubs Inc. are now available and will be accepted until Friday.
