THE FOLLOWING facts show
why no textbook ever has or ever

which are encountered in actual
play. The dealer may hold any one
of 635,013.559.600 different hands.
With the particular hand held by the
dealer, second hand may hold any
one of 8.122,425.444 different hands.
With the two particular hands held
by the first two bidders, third hand
may hold any one of 10,400.600 dif

being fixed the last bidder can hold
just a single hand. The possible
combinations between the four hands
amounts to 53,644,737,765.488.792,839,-
237,440,000. Playing 300 different
hands a day, it would require 5.797.-
210 years to play just the hands com
ing a single player.
It is bunk to state 'that partner
cannot be forced, after he has passed.
No player expects his partner to re
fuse a force when an inforuiatory
double Is made. Provided you hold
forcing bid strength, partner must
respond, whether be has or has not
previously passed. It is your busi
ness to see that partner is not forced
unless you have game, provided he
will keep bidding open once, until
you show him two makes. The
forcer must agree to another bid
when partner responds.
Suppose partner deals and passes.
Second hand bids 1-Spade. Let the
bidder sit South, and hold either of
the two hands shown.

What does the psychologist mean
when he uses this term to describe
unduly ardent attachmentts that some
times occur between two girls, or be
tween a man and a boy? These are
apt to occur with special frequency
in situations where one six or the
other dominates, such as boarding
schools, the army or navy, boy choirs,
etc. Isn’t this sort of friendship a
beautiful thing to be encouraged
rather than looked at askance?
Such friendships *are to be judged
rather by their results than by their
surface appearance. They are unde
sirable when they cause those who
are pre-occupied by them to remain
at this immature stage of emotional
development; and thus interfere with
the normal progress toward a more
adult interest in memibers of the op
A certain amount of sentimental at

As dealer you would make an
opening bid of 2-Hearts, on either of
them. Knowing that showing two
suits gives odds of 82 to 18 that
partner can better support one than
the other of them,, you would insure
being able to show partner both
suits, by using a forcing bid. Al
though your partner has passed, and
South has opened the auction, you
still must force. And to be in posi
tion to force when necessary, you
must ask partner to accept a force,
even if he has passed.
You have become accustomed to
the negative no-trump, to keep bid
ding open on almost nothing over
partner’s opening bid of 1. Now be
come accustomed to keeping bidding
open with 2-No Trumps, or even
3-No Trumps, although you are
trickless and without stops to an ad
verse suit make. But only do this
upon the knowledge that partner
never will refuse to overcall your
no-trumps if he has forced your bid
over an opening suit call. Bid
3-Hearts over 1-Spade. Whatever
partner responds, whether a suit or
3-No Trumps, bid your 4-Clubs.
Allow partner to choose between your
two suit calls. It will pay you well
in the long run
of mind of the girls who become un
duly interested in such sentimental
episodes—'the situation had better be
carefully studied by someone who
understands such matters. It may
be charged with emotional dynamite.

Highway Surplus Will Be
'Drained To Pay Road Debt
(Continued from Page One.)
on the April 1 figures. This doees
not take into consideration the regu
lar operating expenses of the State
Highway and Public Works Commis
sion nor the reveneue collections ex
pected by June 30. But even with the
additional revenue expected, indica-i
tions are that the net surplus as of
June 30 will not amount to more than
But this will be only a book surplus,
since at the present ume the State
has borrowed $2,515,694 from the
(highway fund for general purposes,
so that the actual cash (balance likely
on July 1 will not exceed $5,000 000.
Yet a good many people and even
some of the newspapers in the State,
have interpreted the book balance as
of April 1 of $10,913,576 as meaning
that much cash is now on nand in the
,highway fund and will still be there
July 1. Miss Harriett M. Berry, sec
retary of the North Carolina Good
Roads Association and ardent .fighter
for the preservation of highway
.funds against diversion to other pur
•*poses, took notice of the misunder
standing with regard to the highway
fund surplus today and said:
“I have noticed from editorials in
some of the newspapers, notably The
Charlotte Observer and The Wlinston-
Salem Journal, that statementts are
being made about an $11,000,000 sur
plus in the highway fund and advo
cating its use for schools and other
purposes. I would like to correct this
impression. The facts are that large
bond and interest payments have to
be made July 1, leaving a surplus oi
only about $6,900,Cik)0 or $7,000,000.
This is not a cash surplus, however,
but only a hook surplus. And it would
not have been in existence had not
highways not been ibled white by the
the maintenance fund for the State
1933 legislature, which appropriated
only $6,000,000 for the maintenance of
all the State and county roads com
bined. As a result, we have already
lost much of the original value of our
“Any money that is diverted from
the highway fund reduces the ability
of the highway commission to render
good "service in maintaining the roads.
This makes it impossigie ror the peo
ple who have nott shared in the gen
eral road service to share the genefits
to which they are entitled. Thus any
sudplus that may exist in the highway
fund July 1 should be used in bringing
the hard surfaced roads back up to
a standard grade of maintenance or
for the rebuilding of roads thatt are
Here are some addition facts with
regard to the State’s highways that
are regarded as geing worth consid
This yeaer and next year, undere
the appropriations act of the 1933
General Assembly, the Highway Com
mission can spend only $1,680,000 on
maintaining the nearly 7.000 miles of
State highways and only $4,320,000 for
maintaining over 50,000 miles of
county highways. In former years
the State has spent about $6,000,000 a
year maintaining the mate highways
while the counties formerly spent $9,-
000,000 a year maintaining the county
If present highway funds are di
verted to the extent that the State can
no longer maintain both the State ant*,
county roads, the cost of maintaining'
the county roads will have to be re
turned to the counties, which in turn
will have to levy additional property
taxes for their maintenance, as was
the case prior to the enactment of the
present highway law in 1931.
If the present highway fund surplus
is allowed to accrue to be expended
for maintenance and reconstruction,
all State and county highways can be
adequately maintained without any
property tax for county road mainten
ance and without any increase in the
license or gasoline tax.
Unless the highway surplus is pre
served for highway purposes only, the
State will be unable to match Federal
appropriations for highway construc
tion, and thus lose millions of dollars
in Federal aid funds it otherwise
