HENDERSON, (N. G.) DAIL7 DISPATCH,. THURSDAY, MAY 3, 1934 CONTRACT BRIDGE WRITTEN FOR CENTRAL PRESS By E. V. SHEPARD famous Bridge teacher THE MAGICIAN KEKHAPS BJ I)L>ING might not have gone so high had not South known how well his partner played, pulling tricks out of hands as a magician pulls rabbits from a silk hat. North played the hand as if Inspired. He never hesitated over any play, just as if he saw the ad verse cards. gA 5 3 »K Q * J 10 9 8 7 2 * J 4 ♦ K Q J 42 'lO 8 . .

It went: South, 1-No Trump; West passed; North, 2-Diamonds; South, 2-Hearts; West, 2-Spades; North, 3-Diamonds; South, 4-Diamonds; North, 4-Hearts; South, 6-Diamonds, which was dou bled by East. The opening lead was the 2 of spades, which every player at the table knevv was a singleton. North’s Ace won the trick. Instead of leading trumps, as al most any other player would have done, the declarer led his two hearts, overtook the second heart with dummys Ace. and led the J.

West life. ’*ated about covering with the K, but final ly did so. North trumped. Then he led a trump, and East was in with his Ace, and West hadn't another trump left to ruff a heart, while East could not lead a spade. East had to choose between leading a trump or a rlub. He decided upon a heart, it was barely possible that West held a trump.- North let go one losing spade. He discarded his last losing spade upbn dummy’s 10 of clubs, then he spread his hand, having lost only a single trick, and holding only top trumps. Unless East’s double made Nor'h credit East with possession of the Ace of trumps, and West with the spade honors and the K of clubs, it is impossible to say how the declarer appeared to know just how adverse cards were held, but his rapid fire play made it appear that he knew where every impoitant card was Just how well North manipulated his cards will be better appreciated if one tries to go contract in any other manner. He needed two spade dis cards and a club discard. He pro vided for the latter by leading hearts before any other suit. He provided for the discard of two spades by leaving one established club and one good heart in dummy before touch ing trumpa, Roxboro Singles Win Match, But Henderson Doubles Make Clean Sweep Henderson high school tennis team won over Roxboro yesterday at the Person county capital in a close match 3* to 2.

They should pour out thru the bladder 3 pints of fluid a day which contains 4 pounds of waste matter. If you have trouble with too frequent bladder passages with scanty amount caus ing burning and discomfort, the 16 MILES of kidney tubes need washing out. This dan ger signal may be the beginning, of nagging backache, leg pains, loss of pep and vitality, getting up nights, lumbago, swollen feet and ankles, rheumatic pains and dizziness. If kidneys don’t empty 3 pints every day and get rid of 4 pounds of waste matter, yotir body will take up these poisons causing serious trouble. It may knock you out and lay you up for many months. Don’t wait. your druggist for DOAN’S PILLS ... a doctor’s prescription . . . which has been used successfully by milUoaa of kidney sufferers for over 40 years. They give quick relief and will help to wash out the 16 MILES of kidney tubes. .... But don’t take chances with strong drugs or so-called “kidney cures” that claim to fix you up in 15 minutes. Your common sense will tell you that this is impossible. Treat ments of thia nature may seriously injure and irritate delicate tissues. Insist on DOAN’S PILLS . . . the old reliable relief that contain no “dope” or habit-forming drugs. Be sure you get DOAN’S PILLS at your druggist. © 1934, Foster-Milburn Co.
