Minimum Response to Opening Two Bids.
Anything better than a bare two
probable tricks ordinarily is suf
ficient for ft voluntary response to
partner's semi-forcing opening -Md
of two. Get over fearinr that you
vwill cause partner to go down if
you maae a minimum response.
Going down part of the time Is
less serious than losing" games
through failures to respond. The
two bands given show responses
upon nearly equally weak hold
ings. The "first declaring hand is
the stronger, but in both instances
intelligent, contracting, with some
good Tuck in the second instance,
were touched. Only two-odd could
have been made at no-trumps (five
spades, two hearts and- one dia
mond trick) against reasonable de
fense.. The two raffs by dummy
at the spade declaration made the
difference needed to go game, '

Y made a third hand opening
bid of 2-Spades. on the hand above.
Z had a very skimpy assist upon
three probable tricks, including his
possible chance to tramp a third
round of diamonds. But he answer
ed with 2-No Trumps. When Y
rebid spades, going 3-Spades. Z
bid 4-Spades. They made just
four-odd, losing two club tricks
and one diamond trick; Z trumped
two diamond leads before spades
The hand above bears a some
what close resemblance to the first
hand, so far as the opening bid
and the response is concerned, but
the result was quite dissimilar.
Y's third hand opening bid of
2-Spades was shifted to 2-Ko
Tramps by Z. In reply. Y bid 3
Hearts. which Z raised to 4-Hearta.
Game would have been impossible
at spades, as two trump tricks
most have been lost. As the cards
lay, it was a simple matter to go
game at hearts.
B made an opening lead of his
fourth best club, killing A's K.
When Y won the trick he gave B
a club trick, thereby esUblisbing
a good club in his own hand, upon
which he later on discarded one of
dummy's spades, permitting Z to
trump two spades, and giving ais
side four-odd. ;

OR more than a week, the
Lindbergh kidnaping case
has held the spotlight, and
every day new angles are report
ed which are most thoroughly
discuesed wherever one goes.
Last niicht's new angle, that of
the health of Mrs. Lindbergh,
about which no facta could be
obtained, will give tise to more
a more kindly man woukl be
hard to find, is the execution

CASES DELAYED BY
ILLNESS OF JUDGE
And while on the subject of
kidnaping, professionals should
do the public a service and kid
nap some of the soprano singers
over the radio, as well as some
of the children who sing over the
radio. A child's voice Js pleasur
able around a home, but when
the public has to listen to a child
never heard of before that is
little too much.
Poor health of Judge Gale S
Hill has necessitated the setting
over of several cases in depart
ment two of circuit couft here and
the Indefinite delay of others
Judge Hill advised Walter Lamp

Judge Hill's place next Saturday

granted to prevent collection of

county this year. Judge McMahan
also will sit for Judge Hill at the
regular motion day in department

And Oregon Is not without
its angles on the Lintlborgh
case. Htate Polio Superinten

child. The resident insisted
Pray wire that to the New Jer
sey officials. The idea la as
sound as i thousands of others
being made. Pretty soon re
ports of finding the baby in
Oregon will be coming in.
And while on the subject of
the penitentiary, Warden Jim
Lewis is proud of the recently
completed new cell block. He de
clares it to be one of the finest
In the country. Inspection of the
fine new building would bear
him out. The cells are well ven
tilated, well lighted, and sani
tary. The convicts being moved in
there should consider themselves
Lewis reports that about
150 prisoners hare already
been moved into the new
block, and about 100 more will
be moved in from the crowded
quarters in the old building
during the next week. The
building will hold more than
400. Other repairs In prog
ress will greatly improve Ore
gon's penitentiary and place It
on a par with the best.
The present gas war is not
only being waged among retail
ers and distributors, but the state
board of control has a gas war
all of its own. Most ot the time
of the board of control yesterday
was taken up with consideration
of gas bids, and the controversy
is not yet ended.
