Ferguson Tells Sorosis, Parent
To Blame In Youth Delinquency “Parents must wake up and realize their responsibility ro their children,’’ said J. Hardy Ferguson, former juvenile court judge, as he spoke before the American Citizenship depart ment of North Carolina Sorosis Thursday afternoon. Quoting statistics that showed that one out of eight adults in New Hanover County had ap peared in a recorders court last year and that one out of 218 children in the countv had been delinquent, Mr. Ferguson said that juvenile delinquency was ■ usually the fault of the parent . and not the child. Relating his address to citi zenship. Mr. Ferguson said that . failure to maintain good homes causes failure of a country. Emphasizing that one out of every two marriages was doomed to failure, the attorney said that outlook for stability in the home was very poor. Mr. Ferguson opened the eyes of the women present by re-^ calling cases in this county where a 14 year-old boy had begged to be sent to a training school rather than remain in an unhappy home. He also spoke of a mother who had told the court to take her children—she didn’t want them, and of the many child marriages that were a direct result of bad homes. Said Mrs. G. D. Greer, chair man of the department, follow ing the meeting, “Mr. Fergu son really opened the eyes of the women of our club, who didn’t know that such conditions existed so near home.” Mrs. Greer opened the meet ing and welcomed the guests.

If you have not seen it before, let me suggest that you go to work on it and see^ if - ou can make seven hearts, then check your results with the method employed by Lou Ul shen. On trick one, declarer must be very careful. He wins with the ace but must not discard a spade from dummy. He must discard the four of diamonds. The five of hearts is then play ed, and won by dummy with the ten. The ace of spades is cashed and the king of dia monds discarded from declar er’s hand. The five of spades is ruffed with the seven of hearts The eight of hearts is won by dum my’s jack, and the queen of spades trumped with the ace of hearts. The nine of hearts is overtaken with the queen and the king of hearts is played, picking up West’s last trump. Declarer discards the ace of diamonds on this trick, and then he can run all the good diamonds for the balance of the tricks.
