Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - October 1, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa HEATHCLIFF Plagued by Problems HE POESN'T LIKE VOOR By Oswald James Jacoby When we watched today's hand bid in the Olympiad fund pairs, we saw very few con- tracts made. With no one vulnerable there was a ten- dency for East and West to go Iu three spades. South might double or pass.

East, an alert player, realized that North would now take a push and bid three spades. Now South bid what we con- sider a rather unethical four clubs. He had paid full atten- tion to his partner's slow pass and apparently came to the conclusion that North held a trifle more in the way of club support, but had made up his mind not to bid; so South bid for his partner. Incidentally there was nothing wrong with North's thinking. A player is entitled to think. His partner should not act upon that thought. The bidding has been: 1 West Norlh East South I'ass 14 Pass Pass Pass lit Pass You, Soulh, huld: K 84 3 VA 2 Q II 7 Whal do you do now? A ran ali'onl In move into Blacluvood. Hid four imtnunp. TODAY'S (JUESTION You do bid four nolnimp and your partner bids five diamonds lu show one ace. What do you do now? Answer Tomorrow careful play would sec East going down one trick. It wouldn't be a bad score. South would make three clubs by the simple expedient of ruffing a diamond in dummy before losing control of the trump suit. With the 5-poinl part score bonus, three clubs bid and made would count 110. Three spades doubled down would only be The rather peculiar bidding Shellfish Shells The shells of shellfish are being salvaged to produce chitin and its derivative chilosan, a cellulose-like substance that shows great promise as an additive to improve the water-resistant qualities of newsprint and other paper products.

NW Phone 366-7651 Ily David Lancashire NICOSIA, Cyprus (Al1) llelief experts are battling a host of problems to feed and shelter refugees of the Cyprus war. Food, blankets, beds, money even plastic jugs to carry water, and bags to huld dead bodies inve been donated by dozens of countries including the United States, the Soviet Union, China, as well as (irceee and Turkey. The government of Cyprus estimates that the refugees' "food and lodging" bill is run- ning a day. The United Nations has appealed for million to help the war victims on the island. Most to Greek Zone So far the U.S. has made IV biggest contribution, pledging million, including tents, blankets and other supplies. China has given in medicine, canned food and blankets, and the Soviet Union has sent seed oil, sugar, fish and condensed milk. Red Cross officials say that Red Cross societies in half a dozen nations have sent 21.5 tons of powdered milk, more than 2 tons of baby food, 150 tons of high-protein .ood, cots, 20 tons of medical Man Charged with Drug Possession Perry A. Lindcman, 21, of 527 Sixteenth street NE, has been charged with possession of a controlled substance after police arrested him on a warrant charging him with disturbing the peace. Lindeman was arrested at 7: 50 p.m. Saturday near the west end of the First avenue bridge after officers, who saw him walking in the area, rec- ognized him as the person wanted on the warrant. A search of Lindcman's clo- thing at the police station following his arrest allegedly found a quantity of a subst- ance believed to be LSD in his clothing. Lindeman was being held in the county jail on bond. Flocks More than half of Iran's million people farm or herd flocks of sheep and goals. .supplies anil blankets. About 80 percent of the relief goes to the Creek zone, where Creek Cypriots have taken refuge since their towns and villages in northern Cyprus were occupied by the Turkish invaders. About Turkish Cypriots are either camped at a liritish base on the south coast or marooned in their isolated villages in the south. Drivers Restricted Red Cross teams lour the island with relief supplies, sometimes using loudspeakers to coax frightened refugees from hiding places. Various relief officials say the supplies are getting to those who need them, but they emphasize that problems abound. Greek and Turkish truck drivers are forbidden to cross the cease-fire lines between Greek and Turkish territory. The Turkish military com- mand restricts the movements of the U.N. peacekeeping troops in the northern third of the island, and most of the deliveries there can be made only by the Red Cross or its Turkish counterpart, the Red Crescent. Airport Closed "I still am not allowed to travel freely in the north says George Beau- champ, who came from Washington in handle the American relief effort. He said two truckloads of U.S. goods got caught in a Turkish enclave ri-uciillj and before U.N. troops could recover them, 150 water cans were looted. Getting supplies into the island is also a problem. The Nicosia international airport has been closed for two months because of bomb damage, and relief planes can land only at the British military base at Akroliri. Relief ships can dock only at Limassol; the Turkish army holds Ftunagusta, the island's biggest port. Tents have been provided for many of'thc refugees, but most of them are still sleeping on the bare ground, and eating mostly macaroni and rice "It's going to get colder than hell this said Beauchamp, "and I don't know what we can do about that unless the refugees are back home by then." Settlement Reached in Land Suit A settlement has been readied in three properly owners' suit against the Iowa Highway Commission over condemnation of land. Herman, C.'arl and Frances Strasburger accepted an addi- tional from the highway commission for property condemned an March 24, 1971. The three had previously been awarded for the property at 618-013 First street NW, and 101-103 F avenne NW. The additional award was for damages not contained in the condemnation award.
