(Photo by Edmund McKENNEY ON BRIDGE Discard Indicates Declarer’s Loser; Halts Grand Slam BY WM. E. McKENNEY America’s Card Authority To be a good defensive player, it is necessary to watch the drop of every card. Remember that it is your job always to tell your partner as much about your hold ing as possible. The declarer knows what the adverse high cards are, but the defense must gain this knowledge through the language of cards. Here is an interesting defensive hand that I watched in a dupli cate game at Asheville,' N. C., where the Southern Appalachian Tournament will be held Aug. 23 25. West’s opening lead was won by South with the ace of hearts, the ace and kins of diamonds were cashed and a small diamond trumped in dummy with the ten of spades. Declarer then proceeded to cash all of his trumps. East’s first discard was the heart five and his next the heart nine. Now West realized that South must hold the missing six of hearts, else East would have discarded it after the five; thus he knew he should throw away his ace of club? and retain the queen of hearts to hold declarer to six-odd.

Dreaming Escapists Are Due For Rude‘Awakening, Says Millett - *-F BY RUTH MILLETT Never in our lifetime have peo ple been so busy looking for the peace and quiet and calm of a dream-world desert island, far from bitter reality. Some are finding it by the os trich-like trick of refusing to read he daily papers or listen to the radio. Some are finding it by refusing to believe the implications of the news they read and hear. Some are finding it by filling their lives so full of entertainment there is no time for worrying.^ Desert Island Idea Never Good The desert island never was a good idea. It never was healthy to refuse to face facts as they are. So even though it is far from pleasant, even though the facts we have to face today are so much bigger than we are that they seem staggering, we should face them squarely—all of us. If we kid ourselves as individu als, we will kid ourselves as a na tion. If we fall into wishful think ing that tells us today’s problems and realities can be measured in terms of the past, we are acting like ostriches. It may give us a little peace of mind, but the price we pay for it will be costly. Our country faces great prob lems and great dangers. And since our country is no more or less than the sum total of us all, it is our business to put our minds to work. We must say "These are the dangers. These are the alterna tives for meeting those dangers. These are the costs of the alter natives.” It is up to js to do the hardest, clearest, most tiring thinking we have ever done. Let’s not try to get off easily—either by refusing to admit that great danger exists, or by grabbing hold of the coat tails of the strongest politician in sight and saying “Lead us out of it.” We are a democracy and it is up to us to help figure out the road ahead. 1 LUMBER DEALERS TO MEET AUG. 3 State Association To Discuss Wages, Hours At Wrights ville Beach The wage-hour law as it affects the lumber and building supply in dustry will be discussed at the mid summer directors meeting of Caro lina Lumber and Building Supply association to be held at the Ocean Terrace hotel, Wrightsville Beach, on Saturday morning, August 3.

Batson, son of Mrs. C. Mae Batson, of Wrightsville Beach, was graduated yesterday from the machinists’ school at the naval training station base at Norfolk, Va., F. L. Williams.

Batson’s training will be continu ?d by practical experience on loard a ship of the U. S. fleet equipped with the most modern machinery and appliances.

There are also special train ing courses, issued without charge to enlisted men, study carried on under the direction of offices and all necessary assistance furnished the student. Williams said the navy looks up on each man as a permanent part of its personnel and keeps him un der continuous training and instruc tion. This accounts for the fact, he said, that the navy is known as the place where a man can gain more valuable ’trade experience than he can in most civil occupa tions. Two additional first enlistments as apprentice seamen were report ed yesterday at the local sub-sta tion as follows: William J. Newell, Jr., 18, son of Mr. and Mrs. W. J.
