THE EVENING STAR Washington, D. C. THIRSDAY. APRIL 23. 19A3 Contract Bridge By Easley Blackwood One of the faults of Mr. Muzzy Is his stubborn refusal to bid the full strength of his hand when that action is called for. South dealer North-South vulnerable NORTH (Mr. Muzzy) * KQ V A 8 5 O J 10 654 * KB3 WEST EAST (Mr. Abel) (Mr. Meek) *863 * 10 9742 V Q 107 6 3 J 9 * K7 3 O A 8 ♦ JlO * Q 9 7 4 SOUTH (Mr. Champion) * A J 5 K 4 2 0 Q 9 2 * A6 5 2 The bidding: South West North West 1 club Pass 1 d'mond Pass IN-T Pass 2N-T Pass Pass Pass In today s deal, his second bid should have been three no-trump Instead of two. Mr. Champion could hardly be expected to make three bids on his near minimum holding and his pass of the two no-trump call was justified. He made three-odd by a simple play. ‘‘Why put any strain on me, Muzzy?” he asked. “Why not go straight to game over my one no-trump bid?” “Why, I bid every time,” re plied Mr. Muzzy indignantly. “I bid diamonds, then I raised your no-trump .. “What I’m trying to tell you,” Mr. Champion interrupted, "is that as soon as I opened the bid ding and you looked at your hand, you should have decided to bid game somewhere. When I bid one-no-trump on the second round, slam was out of the ques tion. “Also, it should have been clear to you that thx-ee no-trump was our best spot for game. Why dilly-dally around with a two no-trump bid. I can’t bid your hand and mine, too.” Mr. Champion was right. His opening promised one-third of the deck in high cards. Mr. Muzzy also had a third. That added up to two thirds or about 65 per cent . . . which calls for a game bid unless the partner ship hands are rank misfits. Nine tricks were easily accu mulated by letting Mr. Meek hold the first heart trick with the jack. A heart was returned and Mr. Champion won with dum my’s ace. He led a small dia mond and the queen lost to Mr. Abel's king. The heart return was won in the closed hand with the king and the nine of diamonds drove out Mr. Meek’s ace. By reason of Mr. Champion’s foresight at trick one, Mr. Meek had no heart to lead back at this point and the defenders had won their last trick. (Copyright, 1953, General Features Corp.)

Sardines by the millions rush top speed along the water. When a Maine fisherman observes a whale surfacing, he knows there are sardines in the vicinity. It has been estimated that billions of sardines are chased by fin back whales. Sardines are not smart. All they need to do is to submerge. The whale must plow into the school, the only way the whale can get nourishment. Full of fish, the mouth closes to let the excess water out. The sardines are tangled among the hundreds of hair-fringed whalebone plates hanging from the roof of the mouth. FLOOR MACHINES RENTED SOLD-REPAIRED Service Coot—Scol-Tito 30 Min.

These fishermen never lose their fish and they follow a school for miles, filling up on the small tender sardines. The miracle is there are enough sardines left for human consumption. Almost everything in the sea as soon as it is bigger than a herring, begins on the sardine. No other creature in the world is so preyed upon by its neighbors. The true sardine is in a genus close to Clupea which it resem bles in form. The California sardine is an excellent food-fish of 12 inches in length. Sardines as we know them are small her-. ring, often no larger than min nows. Female herrings lay 30,- 000 eggs annually. There is no need to worry about enough sar dines to supply us.
