Grim Moufh
Sign Woman's
Over Fifty
BY RUTH MILLETT
A man who makes his living
guessing the weight and age of
all-comers, pointed out, in a re
cent interview, some of the
signs that steer him toward the
correct appraisal of a woman’s
age.
At 20, horizontal lines begin
to appear on a woman’s neck.
At 25, crisscross lines on her
hands begin to deepen.
After 30, waist and hips start
to thicken.
At 35, come the tell-tale wrin
kles about the eyes.
At 40, folds beneath the eyes
appear.
After 50, the mouth grows grim.
Now there are some statistics
every woman ought to thumb
tack to a drawer of her dressing
table, to save herself many a
despairing moment.
Women, as a rule, take each
sign of age as a personal trag
edy and a startling surprise.
They are shocked when they dis
cover their first gray hairs, up
set when they notice that laugh
ter lines at the corners of the
mouth have deepened into wrin
kles, discouraged when crow’s
feet appear.
INEVITABLE SIGNS
It might ease them over these
rude shocks to know that such
signs 6f age are not only inevi
table, but most of them come to
all women at approximately the
same age
Most important of all is the
age-guesser’s observation that,
after 50, a woman’s mouth
grows grim. For that is some
thing a woman might be able
to prevent. Grimness is self-in
flicted

McKENNEY ON BRIDGE

By WILLIAM E. McKENNEY;
America’s Card Authority
Written for NEA Service
Quite often it is difficult to
follow the reason in the bidding
and play of a hand by reading
about it in a bridge column, be
cause of the lack of the personal
touch that there is at the table.
Today’s hand, from the recent
world championship knockout
team-of-four match, brings out
this point
The bidding was exactly the
same at both tables up to the

the South player felt that the
hand was close to a slam con
tract, so, over three no trump
he bid four no trump, which he
would have had no trouble to
make if he had a break in the
club suit.
At the other table South
passed the three no trump bid
and, as a result, scored 600
points on the board. This meant i
that his team picked up 700
points on the hand.
Oddly enough, the same open
ing lead was made at both
tables, the king of hearts. Neith
er declarer won the first trick
and East shifted to a spade,
which held the contract to three
no trump.
Looking at all four hands, one
never would get the thought of
bidding a slam. But South, with
his two solid suits, thought there
would be no harm in trying the
Blackwood four no trump bid, j
and with any normal break four
no trump should be easy to
make. Unfortunate distribution
set toe contract one trick. i
