Jacoby, who with his father, Oswald, writes a syndicated daily bridge com- peting this weekend in the 19th annual Harvest Festival Sec- tional Toumiment at the Abi- lene Civic Center. The "Jacoby on Bridge" col- umn appears daily in the morning edition of The Re- porter-News. Between hands during the "Hamlin pairs" session Fri- day 41-year-old Jacoby said the card game's popularity has grown a lot. He added that persons of all ages are playing this "intellectual game." "A REASON for the game's growth can be attributed to .the efforts of the American Contract Bridge League board of he said, adding that the directors have spent a lot of money and time trying to make bridge more popular. Noting that the league has about quadrupled since he be- gan competing 23 years ago, Jacoby said, "The game's popularity also has to do with its narcotic qualities.

Powell declined to disclose financial records involved be- cause of the confidential hos- pital-patient relationship. POWELL SAM: "Since ''publication of the story we have gone through our official hospital records, to determine whether the lady and her family had not re- ceived proper medical care. "Our records show that at least 17 different physicians have seen her since January, 1970, at -different times for various causes, and that does not include other physicians who treated her husband or children during this period. Mrs. BrutOn had ted to our hospital as an in-pa- iient 13 times, and had been seen in our emergency room an additional 12 times. "In addition, her children have been seen as either in or out-patients a total of seven times, and her husband had been admitted as an in-patient at least five, times and as an out-patient in the emergency room once. "We feel like these records very definitely indicate this lady and her family have re- eeiyed proper care during Oiis period of time, and should cor- rect any erroneous impression by the news story that neither the physicians nor the hospital were not concerned about her or other persons who had diffi- culty with their finances.

EARL MILLER had a lot of. catching up to do fact, 50 years the first reunion of the Tuscola School Class of 1924 here gave him ample opporuntity. And so, Miller, a retired metal worker, drove down from Milford near Dallas for a day full of reminiscing with 10 of the 20 old classmates at the Jim Ned Homecoming Friday.

"She used to be quite portly and now she's just the oppos- ite." Miller said he came to the reunion to see what his friends had been doing Hie past 50 years. FLOYD BALLARD, class vice president, came the farth- est to attend, driving more than 500 miles from Monti- cello, Ark., because, "I Just love people. Everytime I get a chance to see an old friend, I do it." Unlike Miller and-Ballard, class president Tom Vauglra slayed in Tuscola all these years, running a grocery store and farming.

"You don't realize what good friends you had- until they've been away." he re- flected. Louise Standard of Abilene arranged the reunion because she thought they simply ought to get together after 50 years. "We were all close and we stuck she said. "Our superintendent used to say that if or.e of us saw an old grey mare pass by and said 'there goes a black horse' that we'd all stand up and say, 'yes, there goes a black- horse.'
