J?VERY real bridge player should be fully informed as to the laws of the game. It is amazing how many players, some of whom have been playing bridge for years, are not fa miliar with the rules as agreed upon and promulgated under the Interna tional Bridge Laws, published in 1935. It is Important to follow the riles in order to play the most enjoyable game of bridge. Bids out of turn, insufficient bids, leads out of turn and exposed cards all interfere with the true bridge player’s enjoyment of the game. These infractions should be penalized in order to re quire every player at the table to con centrate on the game. Aa a matter of pure courtesy and politeness, there fore, every player should be willing to pay the proper penalty for any mis take made, and his opponents should feel obliged to impose the penalties incurred. We do not mean to say that play ers should demand their full penal ties for infractions of the rules when the equities of the situation may in dicate that an enforcement of the rules should be waived. For instance, if one of your opponents is hard of hearing and therefore makes an in sufficient bid, a player should properly waive any penalty to which he there by became entitled. Similarly if a lead out of turn is made as a re sult of some misapprehension caused by the declarer or his partner, it is proper frequently to waive any penalty thereby incurred. In the main, however, the enjoy ment of the game is increased by en forcing strictly the penalties pre scribed by the rules. In every in stance a penalty incurred should be imposed unless there is a specially good reason for not doing so. In the 1935 edition of the Interna tional Bridge Laws, for the first time, there is a section on the “proprie ties” of the game. It is important that every player fully acquaint him self with these proprieties. Practically all expert players follow them as set foi;th in the laws and are extraordi narily careful to avoid in every man ner any unethical play or bid -during the game. These players realise that such practices detract from the en joyment of the game. In the main, the proprieties re quire that no player, by any remark, gesture, or other mannerism, furnish his partner with any information with respect to the play or bidding on the hand. In addition,* the proprieties require that all players refrain from intentional infraction of the rules. Also, a player should endeavor not to mislead his opponents except by the cards actually played. By this is meant that, having a singleton, a player should not hesitate unduly in playing the card, or play a card with particular emphasis in order to mislead the opponents In some man ner. Each card should be played by every player at the table in the same manner as every other card. Expert players have at various times been charged with deliberately violating the proprieties. In our ex i MODEM TO VIE IN FOUR CONTESTS Georgetown Debaters Will Open Against Bucknell March 5. The Philodemic Society of George town University, from whose rtnks the university’s varsity debaters are chosen, has scheduled four intercol legiate contests so far this season. The opening debate will be against Bucknell on March 5 at the Hilltop, followed by other home contests against South Carolina University on March 9 and Princeton, an old foe, on April 6. On Maroh 21, the Philo demic will send a team to debate against Bates College in the public forum of Meriden, Conn., on special invitation. In three of the debates, the Philo demic teams will oppose the question, “Resolved, That the National I*bor Relations Board should be empowered to enforce arbitration of all indus trial disputes.” At Meriden th£y will debate the subject of socialized medi cine. For this event they also drew the negative side. As a result of competitions, the Rev. John J. Toohey, S. J., moderator of the club, has chosen two teams of four seniors and two juniors. The seniors are Walter Briggs Connolly of De troit and George Anthony Dies jr, of Garden City, N. Y. The Juniors are \tfilliam Markoe Dugan of Balti more, John Thomas Flynn of Brook lyn, N. Y.; William Joseph Driscoll, jr., of Lawrence, Mass., and Richard K. Martin of Taunton, Mass. Myles Francis McCahill of Washington and William K. English of Troy, N. Y., are the alternates. The Philodemic debaters had an op portunity to take some first-hand notes on the subject of socialized medicine Thursday evening when Dr. Morris Fishbien, editor of the Journal of the American Medical Association, spoke on that subject at the university. The Georgetown Glee Club, under the direction of Dr. Edward P. Dono van, will sing Friday evening at the Georgetown Visitation Convent and at Arlington Hall, nearby girls’ school, on March 10. Its feature concert of the season will be held March 27. This is the annual Mi-Careme concert which usually draws a large audience to the Hilltop. * Jewish Community Center. Victor Henktn, baritone and char acter actor appears in costume recital under the auspices of the center, February 20. at 8:15 o’clock, in a pro gram of songs and dramatic etchings, chosen from his repertoire of Rus sian, Italian.

Seymour Guthman, secretary to Representative Emanuel Celler of New York, speaks on ’ Public Opinion and Propaganda," Wednesday at 8:30 o’clock. The public is invited. The annual round-up of members closed Teusday night with the award of prizes to Individuals and winning teams by Burnet Siman, director of membership. First prize went to Natie Brown who brought in most individual members. Runner-up for the men was Myer Pumps, and for the women, Ann Edlovitch. Leading in the Gilts’ Club was Miss Helen Edlovitch, and the Boys’ Club, Mike Stein. On the girls’ gymnasium teams, first prise went to Mrs. A. Kershner, and second to Flora Papier. With the promotion of a better understanding of modern Jewish prob lems its objective, the Zionist District of Washington presents Maurice Sam uel at the center on Thursday night. Allan Fischer, chairman of the Cul tural Committee of Z. O. A. is in charge of arrangements. The public is invited. Students in Honor Society. Thirty-five students making high scholastic ratings at Strayer College have just been selected for admission to Sigma Eta Sigma, an honorary scholastic fraternity, according to an announcement made yesterday by E. G. Purvis, dean of the college. perience we find that seldom, if ever, does a real expert violate any of the proprieties of the game. If any thing, the expert leans over back ward to avoid any such charge. On the other hand, many nonexpert players, some of whom are known to be extremely ethical in their busi nesses and professions, do not hesi tate to breach In various ways the bridge proprieties. This may be due to the fact that they are either ignorant of the proprieties or that they feel it is proper to outwit their j bridge opponents in every possible way. Among the various examples of im proper conduct may be cited the following: (1) Fumbling with a sin gleton, (2) taking advantage of part ner’s hesitation in the bidding or play. (3) playing cards too quickly or with undue delay in order to mislead the opponents, (4> indicating the nature of the hand by the tone of voice used in bidding or by other remarks, questions or gestures, (5) calling partner's attention to the con dition of the score or the number of tricks taken' in, <6) volunteering information or misinformation tend ing to mislead the opponents and aid partner, (7) doubling or redoubling a contract and then immediately asking partner whether it is your lead in order to prevent further bid ding. These are only a few of the exam ples that might be cited. In every instance we have noted that the expert carefully avoids the breach of any of the proprieties mentioned in the addenda to the rules. We would advise our readers that it is the mark of the expert to observe every propriety of the game, and never to offend against the spirit of true and honest play as provided both in the rules and the proprieties men tioned. therein.

Repairs to tombstones marking the graves of dead Congressmen in Con gressional Cemetery, America’s first national cemetery, have resulted in the unearthing of long-forgotten items about Dolly Madison and other his torical notables, it was revealed yes terday. The discoveries were made by Wil liam M. Heinline. cemetery superin tendent, in a check-up of ancient flies In connection with the War Depart ment’s supervision of the repairs ordered by Congress for the stones marking the burial sites of Congres sional dead. Faintly lined pages in musty records reveal the burial and subsequent trans fers of the remains of Dolly Madison, who as the wife of Jefferson’s Secre tary of State and later during the eight years of James Madison's Presi dential tenure, dominated the activities in the White Houm social whirl. Orphan Asylum Director. It was during this latter period that she became the first director of the City Orphan Asylum, contributing both time and money to the service of the orphaned youth of the Capital. “I never enjoyed anything so much,” she said of this activity. As the widowed ’’venerable” Mrs. Madison she lived on the northeast corner of Lafayette Square with her beloved niece, Anna Payne, who mar ried James H. Ca listen of this city. Philip Hone, a New York merchant after a Washington visit, wrote con cerning her in his journal for March, 1842: ‘She is a young lady of four score and upwards, goes to parties and receives company like the queen of the new world." Upon her last public appearance in February, 1849, at a White House re ception, Mrs. Madison received an overwhelming ovation, according to the diary of President Polk upon whose arm she made a triumphal tour of the lower rooms of the White House. Impressive “Public” Services. When she died the following July there were impressive “public" funeral services at St. John’s Church, attended by the President, his cabinet, foreign government representatives and other prominent officials and friends. Mrs. Madison's remains were placed in the public vault at Congressional Ceme tery “on July 16, 1849.” This further transcript from the Congressional Cemetery records tells its own story: “Journal III, 1849-1856,” under date of “February 10th, 1852.” “Mrs. Dolly Madison Est. Dr. to removing the re mains of Mrs. Madison from Public Vault to Mr. James Causten's family's Vault, $1.50.” The $1.50 is crossed through with two lines to indicate that the bill was paid. The Causten vault, near that of John Gadsby of Gadsby's Tavern fame, is of red brick with white marble en tablatflres which bear the heading, “Inexorable Death's Doings.” It has the date 1835 over its entrance. Among those whose remains now re pose there according to the inscription on the entablature on the right hand of the entrance is, Mary Elizabeth Carvallo, wife of Manuel Carvallo, one time Minister of Chile at Washington, and daughter of James H. and Eliza beth Causton. According to Mr. Heinline. a de scendant, Luis Amenbar, special com missioner of the government of Chile, while on a mission to America last fall, paid his respects to his maternal for bear. Transfer of Body. This extract from the Day Journal of the Congressional Cemetery of Jan uary 12, 1858, ends Dolly Madison's connection with it and its burial vaults, “Permission given L. Williams to remove the body of Mrs. Madison, Causten's family vault to Virginia." At Montpelier it was interred by the side of her husband and a simple white monument erected over the grave, her name being mispelled “Dolley” by the marble worker in charge of the task. It is thought that her son Todd by her first marriage, who was always lacking in filial devotion to his mother and who repaid repeated efforts in his behalf by nearly reducing her to penury in her declining years, lies in an unmourned grave in the Congres sional Cemetery. An unusual transcript is that of a personal letter from President Polk to the superintendent of the cemetery concerning the burial there of Henry Stephen Fox, British envoy to the United States from 1835 to 1843. It will be remembered that President Polk, during the course of the Oregon boundary dispute with Great Britain, in his administration, said to our com missioners, “The only way to treat John Bull is to look him straight in the eye. I consider a bold and firm course the pacific one.” In his letter, dated September 16, 1847, to the cemetery sexton, Mr. Polk said: “You are hereby requested to set apart in the Congressional Burial Ground an appropriate spot for the Interment of the lae Mr. Fox, formerly Start NOW ta make year ltf* a SUC CESS.

Re moved to Ohio, June 10th, 1941.” "Lund Washington, son of General Washington's half-brother and first organist of Christ Church, April 7th, 1841.” "February 28, 1948. Honorable John Quincy Adams, Public Vault. Removed March 6th, 1948, to Massachusetts.” "October 24, 1850. by Sam'l Kirby, Remains of General Zachary Taylor removed from Public Vault to Lexing ton, Kentucky. $1.00." Congressional Cemetery is located at Eighteenth and Pennsylvania ave nue S.E., adjacent to the Anacostia River or “Eastern Branch of the Po tomac," as it is often familiarly re ferred to by Capitol Hill residents. A number of the old tombstones in the Congressional Cemetery date back to 1804 and 1805, and are an indica tion of its early association with the establishment of the national seat of Government here in 1800. Ingles Among Founders. Henry and John Ingle, who were among the founders of the cemetery, are buried there. Henry Ingle was the great-grandfather of Miss Ella Moore of 1680 Thirty-first street, in what was once old Georgetown. March 30, 1812. Henry Ingle, who since 1807 had been a registrar of Christ Church, the oldest Episcopal parish in the District, established by act of the Maryland Legislature in 1794, deeded to its vestry the nucleus of what has since come to be uni versally known as Congressional Ceme tery. In 1817 the vestry of Christ Church set aside 100 burial sites for the inter ment of deceased Government officials, and in 1823 deeded 300 more to the United States for the same purpose. For over 50 years thereafter this cemetery became recognized as a na tional burying ground for all Govern ment officials who died holding Gov ernment office and for other famous men and women whose careers or official connection justified placing their bodies in graves set aside for public use and deeded to Congress. Shortly after the Civil War this practice was very generally abandoned. There also grew up the placing of memorial markers over the last rest- j ing places of Congressmen and other Government officials. Some 85 of these "bee-hive" markers of sandstone ! still remain in the cemetery and are receiving belated care from the United States Government. Two Vice Presidents of the United States. Gerry and Clinton, were at one time buried in Congressional Cemetery. Gov. Clinton was later re moved to New York State. For a time after the tragic explosion of the ill-fated S. S. Princeton on the Potomac River during President Tyler's administration, Secretary of State Abel Upshur of Upshurs Neck, Accomac County, Va., was buried in Congressional Cemetery in the same grave with his devoted aide, Capt. Beverly Kenyon, both having lost their lives in this catastrophe. Both were afterwards removed. It is also the last resting place of Secretary of War John O. Rawlins, Tobias Lear, secretary to Gen. Wash ington, and of Robert Mills, the first Federal architect. His white marble monument erected by the architects of America commemorates his genius in giving to us the Washington Monu ment and the Treasury Building. WOMEN’S BAR 0f1). C.
