Mckenney America c Ard authority a serial Story Weaver of tales would by Tom Horner copyright. 193#, inca service. Inc this is tile ninth of a series of 18 articles on Tim Vanderbilt club Contention. All opening three bids Are trend the Howing hut deny at least the desire and almost allays that ability to open with be Iii. In other words. What n a tree bid is made the implication is conveyed that tile hand is not Nile Strung enough to open with be club or the player wishes to Snake a strength hewing bid. Flitch at the same time is design a to shut out opponents bidding t the lower Levels. The bid us by conveys the impression that he strength is largely if not altogether restricted to the suit am ii if the opening bid is three clubs or Iii 1 diamonds it has ate conventional meaning of How no such a suit As a ii la j 2 a q j 2 possibly a k j 6 6 2. The bid does not guarantee by Side strength but As a Rule Iii hand contains a stopper in nether suit or partial stoppers a two other suits. Such a bid is constructively a Strong invitation for partner to id three no Trump and such an invitation could not profitably be extended lacking support in any Ither suit it would be tempting Fate too much to expect your Hurter to hold stoppers against by possible Adverse opening it our own hand were a Blank out Ideth suit in which three were id. Exception should be made however with Spades 4 2 a arts 3 i diamonds 2 2 dubs a k q j 4 3 2, As the Cong suit from a defensive Stan Pat might be opened and Palter Mac Well have a weak stopper in two other stilts such a and for instance As Spades. K 4 hearts qui diamonds 9 8 7 clubs amp 4. With a Spade or possibly a heart opening. Game would be made. In major suits the opening three hid strongly invites a game contract with that suit As the Trump. Partner should raise three Spades to four with such a holding As Spades 4 3 2 hearts a 3 2 diamonds k j 5 4 clubs 4 3 2. Should the % partner choose a his response three no Trump he should he prepared to face the probability that the opening bidder will rebid to four Spades if the distribution of the hands suggests that such is the More Likely contract to succeed. The opening bid of three in a major conveys the Strong inference that the hand is restricted to the suit named. Although with some holdings upon which such a bid would be made a three no Trump response might Well he passed. For example Spades a k j to 3 2 hearts 3 2 diamonds k j to clubs q 9. But with Spades k q j 0 4 3 2 hearts. A diamonds q to clubs a q 2. The opening bidder would certainly rebid to four Spades. The Singleton heart the shortness of diamonds Are both compelling arguments for the greater safety of the suit Conli act it is found that the opening three bid in a major often shut is out the opponents Atid in any event it restricts their action particularly when the High cards held by then a divided. It is especially effective in Spades. Where opponents May enter the i bidding Only at the Leve l of four and somewhat effective in hearts where an Adverse three Spade Overall May easily suffer a three til k penalty. Next t Rump.

A Hundred thousand to go away and never let mrs. Bent Honic know. I laughed at him. I wanted to make him suffer As we had suffered Mother and i. Quot you must have some proof the detective persisted gently. A a i be plenty of proof right Here in this room a Ara answered. Quot pictures letters a marriage certificate. They were on the desk when mrs. Henthorne came in. He stuffed them into a Book and put it on the shelf quickly hoping she had t seen them. But i told a suppose you Start at the beginning and Tell me All about it. Well get to the proofs later if Dawson guided her to a chair then stood Over her waiting for this unbelievable fantastic Story. There was nothing sordid in Ara account of her Mother marriage to the Man the world a to know As Arnold be Thorn of was merely the old old Story of an impetuous daughter an attractive Young Man and an elopement to escape parental objection Quot Mother her name was Ara Johnson too Quot the Cirl began. Quot was the daughter of a wealthy Montana cattleman. She was a Beautiful girl and she had a dozen proposals before she was is but John Douglas Quot a Dawson glanced questioningly of tile Young Man. A the mention of the name a Quot really won her love. A the was handsome wealthy apparently an adventurer when he came to Montana. So one could find out much about him. Or where he had made his Money a but that did no to bother folks out there much. He did no work received no mail and apparently had no interest in if until he me Ara Johnson. Quot the old Cowman Boss Johnson. Had Little liking for the stranger the Cirl related and less when he discovered i daughter was seeing Douglas. At last the couple eloped to Salt Lak City. The marriage lasted three months. Then Douglas disappeared. Leaving his wife penniless and alone. She was too proud to go Back to her father too Independent to ask for help. She found work. First As a waitress. Then in a laundry but the hour were Long and the pay Small Ara was born in a Charity Ward. But the months of work the agony of loneliness climaxed by the birth of the child had taken too great a toll of her mothers strength. A before Mother died she wrote All of this in detail. Then she put it with a1 lot her pictures of turn self and her husband her marriage certificate and some letters John Douglas had written her before their elopement. On one of them his Finger must have been smudged with Ink was an almost perfect fingerprint. She also wrote a letter to her father in Montana. A she left instructions that her father should be notified in ease of her death and that the packet of letters should be kept for me. But something went wrong no cml Ever told her Tattler. And Tho packet was forgotten. A i was raised in an orphanage apparently no one Ever wanted to adopt me. When i was to i went j to work As a housemaid. The family i worked for were kind j and helped me All they could. It was through their efforts that i was Able to Trace my birth record and discover my Mother. A one of the nurses who bad cared for Mother remembered her. And told me about her. She remembered the packet of letters too and when she Learned i did not have them she began a search that finally uncovered them in an old file Cabinet in the a a but finding her father was no simple the Quot a. Ara Learned after Long years of vain searching. She might have gone Home to her Grandfather lest finding her father became an obsession. Site had been alone All of her life a few More years could not matter. And Tho years Pas cd any affection she might have had for j Lier father turned to hate. Her Long hours of work were blamed on him. The pleasures she was forced to forego and the hardships she endured were charged up to i neglect hers a a Long fight. For an education for a Job even for a living. Detecting her father a he re used his name adopted that of her Grandfather. And All the time so waited for the Clew that might Lead her to her father. It came unexpectedly. Yes she was working As cashier in a Coffee shop where she first noticed him an open faced red haired. Smiling youth who paused to talk about the weather and the baseball games As he paid his Check. A build up for an invitation to show and supper Quot she warned herself. There were Many such requests and invariably All met with the same smiling refusal. But this time Ara wondered if she really wanted to class this genial Young Man with All the it hers. For a we k she watched for him each Day. Waited for the inevitable a How about seeing a show tonight Quot but it did not come. Then late one evening just before she was ready to quit she looked up from counting her change into those laughing Blue eyes and that disarming Grin. A have you lived in Salt Lake Long Quot he asked pleasantly. A i a born Here Quot a you must know a lot of people Quot Quot not Many and Only a few of those who really a a in a looking for a Man Quot he continued. A i Don t know much about the City. In be sear bed for i a week and i m no farther now than when i started. You be been Friendly More so than any other person Ive met a i wonder if you d help me Quot there was no denying his straightforward Appeal. A wait outside until i m through Here. We can Stop at the Library Check into the fifteen minutes later they hurried toward the Library. Suddenly Ara paused. Quot this Isnit a habit i of mine you know Quot she said.

Morris Fishbein editor journal of Hie american met do a1 in Dation and of ii Kola die health Magazine rated after heart disease among the chief census of death in the United states Are influenza and pneumonia. They Are grouped together because they frequent Trike at the same time or because one often follows the Thor. In 19 37 influenza Ami Pion Monte a counted for Tivoli deaths or 10.02 Pep cent of All death in Thi country. They caused 12.6 per cent of All deaths among persons Between the Agos of 5 and 19 and were third among the causes of death in this age group. Nevertheless. A Xci it for the great epidemic of 191$, the number of deaths from influenza and pneumonia a Hee gradually declining. Now there i reason to believe that with the discovery of anti pneumonia serums Ami Eiolf pyridine As effective agents the rates will fall till lower. Influenza alone is Seldom fatal. In fad for a while ail deaths from both diseases were chalked up to pneumonia. Then came the epidemic of 1918. And a it Learned of the special nature of influenza. Under some circumstances. In that epidemic Many patients died of pneumonia but the chief cause of death was influenza which induced pneumonia. A since scientists ale convinced we Are Likely to have further epidemics of influenza from time to time we should give some attention to methods of preventing such conditions. In the la St place remember these diseases Are of the infectious Type. One of the first preventative measures is to stay away from persons who Are victims of these diseases. Remember too that the germs ire spread by roughing or sneezing. The person who is sick should not be the same Towel napkins drinking and eating utensils that Are used by the rest of the family. Certainly they should refrain from kissing or j fondling children j we do not have any a Stab j ii Hod form of vaccination or Ino it Ula Tiou against influenza and pneumonia. Prevention therefore Means that we must keep our bodies in the Best physical condition so they can resist these disease by die development of the kind of natural resistance the body a against All sort of physical disturbance. Neglect of mild influenza or of a mild cold leads to pneumonia. The first thing to do when you Are sick is to get into bed Aud Call a doctor Nen to modern treatment of pneumonia.
