Goren One Should Reappraise His Values in Light of Partner’s Bidding. It is a weakness of a great many players that they form an early opinion about a hand and are un able to change it as the bidding develops. Frequently a hand starts out with brilliant prospects, but when the bidding developments show that partner is not fond of either of your suits and you are unable to support his, what promised to be a bread winner may prove to be a problem child. By the same token, you may pick up a hand with a few scattered pic tures and no particular distribution and you find it difficult to manifest Interest in the proceedings. A round or two later the bidding may have convinced you that you have a card or two that may prove to be the missing links and you promptly collect your wandering thoughts. Today’s hand records one such case. To the opening bid of one spade South responded one no trump. Thpugh he held normal trump support, the distribution of the hand was so barren that It was wiser not to increase the contract. North’s rebid was naturally two dia monds and at this point many play ei* would be tempted to pass on the ground that “I like diamonds better than I do spades and have already told the strength of my hand.” I am inclined to believe that such reasoning would be superficial. Ac tually the complexion of this hand has now changed. We are certain that North has five spades and it is very likely that he also has five diamonds. This is the reasoning: If North had only four-card suits he would have passed one no-trump, or if his hand were sufficiently 6trong he would raise to two no trump. Rather than definitely con sign this hand to a part-score, I would suggest affording partner one more chance by returning to two spades. Actually South’s preference is for diamonds, but, since he is convinced that partner has five spades, the preference with three to the queen is not objectionable. North then decided that there was a chance for game, which he coaxed partner to bid by going to three spades. South decided to take the gamble, hoping that the king of hearts would prove to be the key card. He well realized that if North had a single ton heart instead of club his king might not be a vital card, but he was willing to take the chance and was rewarded for his enterprise when the hand proved to be a laydown.

For exam ple, you speak of living ON such and such a street. In Britain we always live IN the street, not on it.—C. St. J. A. In American usage "in the street” means in the paved roadway for vehicular traffic. One may walk in the street; children may play in the street; a drunken man may lie in the street. But one never lives in the street. One lives on a street. That is to say, one’s house is on either of the two rows of lots that face the .street. Report on Tan Giok Din, Filipino schoolboy. A few weeks ago I quoted an appealing letter from little Tan Giok Din of the elementary school at Sitangkai, Sulu, Philippine Islands. I suggested that my readers send letters, books, magazines, etc., to the lad and his classmates to help them in their study of English in their faraway and remote little school. ' I am delighted to report that many readers tell me that they are sending subscriptions to Reader’s Digest, Life and other magazines. They have mailed dictionaries, copies of Roget* “Thesaurus” and other text books. They have written abundant letters of encouragement and good will. Thanks to all of you. Los Angeles: There is no limit to inducements offered housewives to buy. On an early morning program the announcer tells us: “Our milk is delivered freshly every »day”! I can hardly wait to see the milkman. Hope he looks like Clark Gable.— Mrs. E. E. G. Salina: Figures of speech are classified. Is there any attempt to classify jokes? I could find nothing in the library about it.—Mrs. 8. M. A. It is said that there are only eight basic jokes in existence. But I’ve never seen a classification of them. Many comedians and gag writers have files of tens of thou sands of jokes arranged under topics, listed alphabetically, cross indexed, etc. St. Paul: You often use “oe” to indicate the long sound of “o,” as “SOE-ber” for sober.

Points for Parents ”ByEdyth™omaiWa,lac* Preventing a younger child’s destroying an older one’s treasures is an important factor in helping the older one accept the latest addition to the family. i ThM Not This 10-41 Father—We’ll put these doors on your play shelves and fix a high hook on them so you can keep your toys that baby might break where he cannot get them.

Father—Shame on you for say ing such a thing I Baby doesn't know any better. i Uncle Ray's Corner —By Ramon Coffmaa 1 Among the birds of the world, the finches rank high for the sweet ness of their songs. The finch family includes the canary, the favorite cage bird. Canaries are natives of certain islands in the Atlantic Ocean—Ma deira, the Azores and the Canaries. Italy seeins to have been the first place in the outside world where they were placed in cages. They took weli to the life of captives, and have been-marketed in many lands during the past four cen turies. . In a wild state, the true canary is chiefly gray-brown, but most cage canaries are yellow. Canaries often lay eggs and raise young while in cages. Soifie pairs bring up four broods in a year. Another finch is the wild canary of this continent. It is an Ameri can goldfinch and also is called the yellowbird. Still other finches are the grosbeaks, hawfinches, cross bills and bullfinches. Europe has splendid singers known as chaf finches. In the Hartz Mountains of Ger many there is an old custom of gathering at a certain place each year for a contest in song. The singers are chaffinches which are presented to the judges in covered cages. The judges listen to the songs which come from the cages, and give scores to each bird. If the melody i? regular, it helps the score. The power of the bird to keep on singing also is in its favor. Another thing which the judges listen for is a "zlck” at the end of each burst of song. The “zick,’* serves as a kind of period, mark ing a space before the singing starts again. If the bird has a new set of notes in the next part of its singing, there is another point for it in the scoring. The chaffinch contest is a merry event in the lives of Hartg Moun tain folk. Perhaps 20 birds are entered, and one of them will be named champion far the year. Test Your Horse Sense —By Dr. G. W. Cron# i 1. Which one of the following is most likely to contain a liquid?
