Grow with the firm. Not all women in business have a chance to grow with the firm, but every wife has. When her hsuband moves ahead in his business or profes sion, she can grow along with him. When he widens his inter ests and enlarges his circle of friends, she can move right along at his side. As her children begin to grow up, she can keep pace with their ideas and so stay young in mind. When her biggest job is done, getting her children reared, she can spend her time and energy in ways that will keep her in teresting and companionable. Every wife has a chance to grow up with the firm, but many wives neglect to do so. MARRIAGES CAN They take on marriage and motherhood and fail to see that that’s a job that can be en larged. They should equip themselves so that, as their firm—that is, their family—grows in new in terests, increased responsibili ties, and more independence, they grow, too. What such women don't see until too late is that if they fall to grow with the firm, they are sure to be left behind.

McKENNEY America’s Card Authority Written for NEA Service One of the first questions that a newspaperman asks a woman bridge expert is, do women play as good bridge as men? I have often asked that question my self, and, surprisingly, the wom en always answer tfiat men play better bridge than women. With all of the fine women play ers coming along throughout the country, I doubt if that is a true statement. In my opinion, good women bridge players play equally as well as good men players. It was in the national wom en’s pair championship that to day’s hand came up. You might consider that East and West bid optimistically, but remem r11— 1 - i *K42 V AK87I ♦ 542 *42 __ * A V 10 8 3 2 * Q J 9 9 6 *QJ 10 97*5 VQ ♦ 10? * X 7 5 Tournament—Neither vul. South W«t North East 3 * Pas* Pass 4 ♦ Pass 5 ♦ Pass Pass Opening—* Q * ber that South had opened with a pre-emptive bid. Over such a bid, a pair will sometimes make an optimistic bid because they are afraid of being talked out of something. A pre-emptive bid usually indicates the lack of high card values in the bidder’s hand, and each opponent natur ally starts to place those values in his own partner’s hand. The opening spade lead was won in dummy, and declarer realized that in order to make the contract, she would have to find the king of clubs right. So she led the queen of clubs from dummy, took the finesse and it lost to South’s king. South now played the queen of hearts. North might have put the eight-spot on the queen, ask ing for a continuation of the heart suit. But South would have been unable to continue with a heart, and declarer would have made the five dia mond contract. North correctly overtook the queen with the king and cashed the ace of hearts, making sure of defeat ing tlie contract. She then led the third heart. South trumped, and the contract was down two tricks. RECORDER’S COURT SEPTEMBER RECEIPTS LISTED BY CLERK September receipts in New Hanover county Recorder's court totalled $6,311.40, a drop of $226. 83 under the August receipts, ac cording to Hugh Sponcler, clerk of court.
