any error that might occur in the routine of the most efficiently managed of fice Miss Darrow saw to it that the blame was concentrated wholly and unjustly upon Frances Staring at the incriminating

pride in ths title the modest boasting among her friends her im portance When Dr Carr conceived the idea of making Prances his sec retary and elevating Miss Darrow to the directorship with a raise in

hand thus enabling his opponent t o take tricks with minor cards he can usually free himself of the pressure discarding if j he can choose h i s discards after the squeezing hand has been forced to choose his The fundamental principle of the Vienna Coup is that De clarer playing a hand for a squeeze must sacrifice the mas ter card in one suit or more in order that the defense player may not have this great advan tage of time in discarding Al though this line of play estab lishes as the top card of its suit an otherwise secondary card in in adverse hand it frees com munication between the hands of the squeezing partnership S 5 3 0 10 8 7 98642 A Q 5 V A 9 2 0 A Q J 5 AQ 3 I played the above hand in a Duplicate tournament at a con tract of sis notrump but since every trick counts at Duplicate I was most anxious to achieve the maximum result West open ed the spade six I played the spade Knave from Dummy and it held the trick Now I played four rounds of diamonds taking the last in my own handwith the Ace On the last diamond West discarded the club Ten and be cause I knew him to he an honest player I felt sure he was not falsecarding It was therefore obvious that should I finesse for tha club King I vould lose a trick and make only and should I lead five rounds of hearts it would be necessary for me to discard the Queen of either spades or clubs on the last heart whereupon West could un guard his King of the same suit and win a suro trick with the King of the other suit I there fore played the club Aco at tho sixth trick and then played five rounds of hearts discarding my Queen and three of clubs on tho last two at which point the position was as follows After I discarded the club Queen West had to choose be tween throwing the club King whereupon D u m m ys Knave would have been high or the spade Ten thus allowing me to cash the Ace and Queen of spades I therefore was suc cessful In winning all 13 tricks TOMORROWS HAM If East vulnerable has opened the bidding and South is plajing a contract of four hearts wbat is the most probable line of play to give him his contract provided East wins the first two diamond tricks and returns a trump East Dealer

of the World War there was no such thing as the spike heel There were high French heels on evening and afternoon shoes and some modi fied Louis for the street but none of the stilts that women aflect

recently announced that the revival of the glamorous fashions of the Gay Nineties might bring in Us wake a return to pompadours paychrs and profusely curled coiffures At nny rate lie contends soft curls nnd ringlets will be really essential this season in order to harmonize with the femininity of the new styles That wont make mucn ufrcrcncc to Hie uvcrasc woiniin however For as I told you yesterday a good many females have Curltlocks complexes And theyll do most anything to pro cure ringlets and curls in their tresses However as I mentioned In my last nrtlc c there are plenty of safe and effective methods of curling the hair without resorting to harmful prac tices The most satisfactory way of course is to have the ends of the hair permanently waved But there are other methods too The method you adopt for procur ng ringlets depends somewhat upon the length of your hair If you have a very short bob the best way of curling tho ends is by making tiny snail curls To make these take small strands of your hair moisten them and twist each of them into tiny fiat ringlets Then pin each ringlet In place and permit it to dry when all the tiny ringlets are en tlrcly dry remove the pins and comb encli one softly about your finger If you have ft medium bob it is best to use the snail curls on the sides of your hair For the back of your hair however you may use the same methods that arc designed for the long bob To make soft ringlets in hair of these lengths you may use those round aluminum curlers or the oldfashioned kid curlers In this process the hair should again bo di vided Into small strands and mois tened well Then one of the pre ferred type of curlers should be placed nt the bottom of each strand tho hnir wound around It and the curler fastened When nil the strands hava been rolled on the curlers the hair should be permitted to dry And when dry each ringlet should ba combed softly around the linger This will train the hairends into attrac tively soft youthful
