6Y WEN Expert Streamlines His Sys tem for Safety and Speed. Br the Associated Press. NEW YORK, March 0— Improve ment on the Culbertson system of bidding at contract bridge, "built for speed and safety and streamlined to resist the winds of chance," were an nounced today. Requirements for opening bids of one no trump are increased to four or five honor tricks with 4-3-3-3 dis tribution. except In rare cases where tenace hands of other distribution make a no trump bid preferable to a cuit opening. A new void-showing bid ia created. A double-jump shift by the respond ing hand, three spades over partner's opening bid of one club, for instance, shows a void in spades and a strong fit in clubs, with slam possibilities. The bid is designed to reach slam contracts which might otherwise be Impossible. Bid Requirements. Three honor tricks are required for an opening bid in any position, ex cept that when a suit is rebiddable 2'« honor tricks are sufficient. Any five-card suit headed by ace-king cr three honors is construed as rebidda ble. A six-card suit is always re biddable. A one-over-one bid, or a takeout of two in a lower-ranking suit, is forcing for one round. The require ments for a takeout of one no trump after an intervening pais have been lowered to one plus honor tricks. A two no trump takeout is forcing to game and requires 2Y2 to 3>3 honor tricks. Original bids of two no trump re quire five or more honor tricks, with eight honor cards and all suits stopped. Double-Raise Requirements. A double raise of partner's original suit is forcing to game and requires at least four trumps, two honor tricks and a singleton, 2% honor tricks with a doubleton and three with balanced distribution. A raise from one to four is pre emptive and may be given with five trumps and strong distributional ad vantages. A defensive overcall of one more than necessary indicates eight win ners with a two-suiter or a strong rebiddable suit. "The intelligent and more frequent use of the penalty double at low lev els," said Ely Culbertson, "made weak opening bids unpleasantly dangerous and it became necessary to tighten up its requirements. By' standardizing opening bids in any position at the table we simplify the bidding prob lem." WINNER OF LAW DEBATE IS ELIGIBLE FOR FINALS J. V. De P. Dillon of Ashley M. Gould Club Winner in G. TJ.
