   Oakland Tribune (Newspaper) - November 26, 1934, Oakland, California                              OAKLTAND TRIBUNE MONDAY NOVEMBER 26 1934 SPITE MARRIAGE CHAPTER I hour when Miss Gertrude Moore was thirty she looker a sternlipped puritan fiftyfive and she prided herself upon the fact that she had never evaded a duty Duty was seen by her as some disagreeable truth that she must tell or as a gesture she must inake near the particular apple cart which the gesture would upset And since age increases flavor and bouquet Miss Gertrude at a frostbitten forty was as welcome to any convivial group as would be a case of sWarnp fever to the tropics and although the general public took no measure to stamp her out their collective fading at her approach suggested that she WHS highly contagious Occasionally when gentler souls considered Miss Gertrude Moore they murmured that perhaps after all it was no wonder that her niece Marsha Moore was a trifle but these gentle souls have weak lungs and their voices can not pen etrate into the wail of a heart that has lost a love Marsha Moore collected men both single and ostensibly attached as sundry old maids of both sexes col lect Spode Ming Wedgewood Cin ton Sevres or vvillowware And having collected hem she ft them against tha light to see through them and then she set them upon her shelf to laugh a little and mirthlessly or to raise her quizzical brows When Marsha was sixteen and Miss Gertrude thirty Miss Gertrude had seen Marsha upon the horizon as a Miss Moore told the rector about it and when he called on the day after the tragic news reached him he had foregone his golf knowing that Miss Gertrude Moore was not a person who forgives undue And you say you are going to give a home to your niece asked the rector who was pleasantly rotund andto whom sinners drew near easily and of whose levity Miss Gertrude disappi oved I can do no less responded Miss Moore after which she tight ended her lips to look like one of the avenging fates more so The child is sixteen asked the rector Sixteen and unfortunately like her mother of whom I have never approved God help her thought the rec tor and with full piety Ho said It was a tragic affair LHe was speaking of n large group of humans for the most part coin 1 fortable and happy and content with r life who on n huge and proud maiden voyage had found the way to Davy Jones Locker learned top something of heroic the simplest souls may be and how God Snve the King may sound played gallantly by men who thought home and the women at home as a deck canted sank and the water rose One of the teachers is bringing her heretomorrow said Miss Ger trude she has been al a school in Connecticut I seejr said the rector as he stared at Miss Gertrude And lie did see He hoped the child would have some resource some inner light that would brighten the gray level way upon which Miss Moore would insist that she walk But he feared she might be of Ihe group who know nothing of deeps nnd who must skim sustenance f rom the surface Miss Moore had told him of her brother Admiral Moore and the unfortunate latitude among per sons of the Navy and of the wife nnd her flirlalions and of this child who had been reared in hotels and schools and who knew nothing of that solace which comes from a solidly planlcd unmoving home but who knew everything pelly and bold in trigue Poor child thought the rotund rector Poor child And he sighed Life he found was frequently too difficult I shall enter her in the church school here said Miss Gertrude Moore Yet again the rector sighed He considered the church school t to be one of the most dismn institu tions he hnd ever been KO unfor tunate as to see and he suspected that the breakfast porridge was ex tremely thin and that boiled rice made a dinner finish at least three times each week I shall come to see your niece he promised as he rose Marsha who the day before hnd been summoned to the school office to be told that her mother and father no longer existed in any form that she could recognize was as the rector gained the New York slrect again asked lo come down to talk with Miss Pringle She hadnt cried at all The news had made her feel only stupid and as if she had been very ill for a considerable time She had slranpc iinj mother pinkiinct parasol canted over n shoulder nnd in a riksha in Shanghai Colonel Duvcen hnd always been by her hat season Marsha had considered him rjuilc a rotten sort of Men for Marsha were divided into classes that she headed Plajn fancy and rotten and even at that hour and at fourteen years she felt she knew men wcli and that nothing more of them could be said to her And too throughout the ion wakeful night and during he lay she had seen her father tall lean and erect always debonair anxious that Marsha should not cnre too much about anything nor any one Dont go caring loo deeply he had warned her again anJ again It smashes your heart to He had dreamed young that life might be rather splendid and when he found that it could not be that way he had chosen laughter but looking on Marsha he reinem bered women cried easily Miss Pringle was behind her desk My dear dear child she said as Marsha entered Marsha bobbed as she had been taught and quite properly but a muscle at the corner her lovely lips twitched a trifle I have a message from your Miss Pringle

Michael never meant any thing to me and he never will She put her hand on his shoulder Please Tim Tim was sobbing now but the tense bitterness of his gaze had vanished He clasped her tenderly her full

symptons comj niany wholcsome foods Partly bo mon in digestive disorders and even I inmj m though all of the following symp CU1SC of food toms may not be present usually two or more are noted Probably the one symptom most found is excessive gas The gas stretches the stomach causing a feeling of pressure or fullness and producing belching The patient may notice that the heart starts to race pound or throb or ho may have a feeling of smothering or op pression through the chest which is especially uncomfortable He is practically certain that there is something wrong with his heart instead of putting the blame where it bclnogs on the stomach Occasionally he feels a wave of dixxincss pass over him and at the same time his vision blurs so that and partly because of poor assimila tion he loses weight and cant gain In many cases he is troubled with constipation This type of stomach trouble is called by the doctor chronic gas tritis The causes of chronic gas tritis arc very simple and are over ealing eating food combinations which arc not good eating in too much of a hurry using rich mix lures of foods hard to digest cat ing of highly seasoned foods You may est assured that the fault lies in your habits which are not good and the cure will cnmc only from the development of good eating habits Upon pressing over the top of Ihe stomach with the fingers ho note a feeling ot

to promote a trick in partners hand it may be vital that you should go up with a high card to protect one of your part ners entries or maybe you should lump up merely because you wish o cash a setting trick Still another reason for the seem ingly unnecessary play of a high card by the second hand is to pre vent the declarer from shutting him out and ducking the trick into the nondangerous hand On the hand selow West defeated a threeno rump contract by brilliantly piil ing up a doubly guarded jack This play completely threw the de clarers plans out of gear South Dealer Both sides vulnerable A K

normal and the final contract a natural one West opened his fourth best heart and Easts queen held the first trick South of course realized that to fulfill his contract he had to set up some spado tricks first giving up one trick in that suit He decided to hold off two rounds of hearts and thus attempt to prevent East and West after getting in from running too many heart tricks East con tinued the suit and South again stayed off but won the third ruond Souths only hope now was that he could shut the West hand out He accordingly led a low spade from his hand intending if West played low to play low from dum my The West player was not asleep however He knew from the bid ding that South probably held only two small spades as after North had rebid the suit South with three cards in it would probably have raised to four rather than bid three notrump In addition if South did hold three spades West knew his cause would be lost as the spade lead would almost surely be ducked into th East hand and now even though the declarer won only four spade tricks instead of five the contract would be fulfilled as West could not get in Consequently West jumped up with his spade jack to T uvent the declarer from ducking tl first round of the suit to East This play rendered South help less He could not afford to let Wests Jack hold the trick as the latter would now run the setting heart tricks On the other hand South could not win the first spade and then duck the second spade into the East hand as he would now have no means of re entering dummy Actually South in desperation played for his only chance He topped the spade jack with f king in dummy returned to his own hand and then took the fi nesse hoping that West originally held both honors The finesse ol course lost to Easts queen and South did not even make both of1 his high spades As a result his contract was eventually defeated three tricks Had West complacently played a low spade on Soulhs lead of that suit the contract would have been fulfilled as South would then have b en able to win four spade tricks and five other tricks in aces and kings TOMORROWS HAND West Dealer Neither side vulnerable A J 7 A 7 0 A
