leading team-of-four. inventors of the system that has beaten every other system
Outlook for 1938.
IN OUR opinion 1938 will be the
greatest year in the history of
bridge. There are several reasons.
First, there is the matter of
systems. For some time we have been
collaborating with all the leading
players of the country in an effort to
produce a universal system. Natur
ally we want this universal system to
be based on the Four Aces system. We
believe that the record of our team
and others playing our system in
national tournaments throughout the
last five years has proved our system’s
worth. We feel that the natural bid
ding methods we have adopted are
the easiest to master.
Since the publication of our first
book we have seen no reason to change
any of the fundamental principles of
our system. Instead we have been
seeking merely to simplify it. In our
new book, to be published early this
year, our whole aim is to make things
easier for the average player.
Next, 1938 will be a great year from
the standpoint of tournaments. For
years every one has agreed that there
have been too many meaningless
bridge tournaments, but no one
aeemed to know what to do about
it. First, there was the Ameri
can Whist League, which, while pri
marily a whist organization, never
theless conducted two contract events
each year. Secondly, the American
Bridge League conducted a large num
ber of tournaments, including three
master events. Third, the United
States Bridge Association conducted a
great many local tournaments and one
annual tournament with two main
events. Finally, we had the Vander
bilt Cup tournament, the blue-ribbon
event of contract, conducted Independ
ently of any of the three leagues.
This situation was finally remedied
in 1937, when the United States
Bridge Association merged with the
American Bridge League. The new
organization, the American Contract
Bridge League, promptly concluded an
agreement with the American Whist
League, which means'that the Ameri
can Whist League contract events will
not have to be regarded as national
events any mare.
Then the Vanderbilt Cup Commit
tee, realizing that the new organiza
tion will be able to conduct the Van
derbilt Cup tournament properly, en
tered into an agreement with the new
league under the terms of which the
Vanderbilt Cup becomes the open
knock-out team-of-four event of the
new league. Accordingly, in 1938, in
stead of having 14 or 15 national
events, we will have only about six or
seven. Undoubtedly this will mean in
creased attendance and better and
more difficult tournaments. If any
thing, the competition will be keene:
in 1938 than ever before. We canno
promise to continue our winnini
record, but we certainly are going t<
be in there trying.
We will not hold title to the Vander
bilt Cup, which we won in November
for very long, as in the future thii
tournament will be played in April a
the same time as the indlvidua
masters. The date of the other im
portant team-of-four event, thi
Spingold Trophy, has been changer
to the summer and will be played fo:
at Asbury Park, N. J.
For many years the Americai
Bridge League had a hard struggle
financially, due mostly to the super
fluity of leagues and tournaments
From time to time temporary loam
were made to the league by individ
uals, thus making possible its passagi
over the rocky road. Due to the popu
lar master point plan and the recen
merger, the league has at last fount
its way into the black. All debts havi
been paid, and a prosperous future t
in store. However, the league is i
non-profit-making organization, am
the directors have decided to devoti
all surplus money to a very worthi
cause, the light against infantili

Friendship Also Distributes
Questionnaire in New
In a new year greeting to mem
bers of the Friendship Citizens’ As
sociation, President Samuel J. Flick
inger asked them to make three reso
lutions for 1038—first, to bring Into
the association at least one new
member a year; second, to attend
meetings regularly and take an active
part In civic affairs, and, third, to pay
The resolutions were contained In
a letter mailed last week, which also
contained an outline of the work
ahead of the association and a ballot
on which members could indicate
whether or not they were in favor of
a vote for the District and what form
that vote should take.
They were asked If they favored
local self-government, representation
in Congress, a mayor and legislative
body, elected commissioners, or a local
legislative, body elected on a ward or
city-wide basis. Results of the ques
tionnaire are expected to be an
nounced late this month.
One of the outstanding needs of the
community, Mr. Flickinger said, is a
new branch library building at Wis
consin avenue and Albemarle street
N.W. The use of the present library
is dwlindling because of the Inade
quate facilities afforded, he said.
Previously Mr. Flickinger had stated
that this drop In library use had
been used as an argument by the
Public Library when it failed to
grant their request for a new branch,
and In his letter he urged members
to patronize the present one at Wis
consin avenue and River road N.W.
by taking out a card and making a
practice of getting a book every week.
Other immediate needs in Friend
ship Heights, he said, were the com
pletion of the Woodrow Wilson Sta
dium and a community theater.
Last week a special committee of
the association announced the win
ners in the annual contest for the
best decorated homes and business
establishments in the community dur
ing the Christmas season. First place
for the best decorated home went to
Richard K. Stevens, 4404 Fessenden
street N.W., ‘‘for’ the most elaborate,
appropriate and well-planned dis
play”; second, James Coker, 4429
Brandywine street N.W., "for artistry
in making interior and exterior light

third, Warren W. Mulligan, 4311
