Students of all the schools in
Salem are being given a talk on
safety this week. W. R. Newtnye?

,Mr. Newmyer ' gives the sta
dehts five "don't", which may- be
summarized briefly as follows:
Donl touch wires hanging down
from a pole or tree.
Don'f climb trees with wires
passing through the branches.- "
,Don t fly kites near power lines.
Don't pat radio aerials above
electric wires.
Don't touch a brass socket when
turning on or off a light when
you are standing on a concrete
floor or in a bath tub.
. -Flags ' then tells ' the students
what to do if someone does touch
an electrically charged wire, how
to- take him off the wire without
danger, and how to-appIy artifi
cial resuscitation. He demon
strates, using Mr. Newmyer as
the unfortunate individual.
This talk and demonstration
has been given at Garfield, En
glewood, Washington, Richmond.
Par k,: Lincoln, and to the teach
ers at Parrish, and will be given
during the week at the other
The reaction to. the talk by the
principals, teachers, and. students
has been interesting with Students
discussing the information gen
erally. If this series of talks saves just
' one person from coming in con
tact with a high voltage wire, the
sponsors will feel amply repaid
for their work, they say.
If any of the rural schools or
any other group would care to
have this talk and demonstration
presented to them, Mr. Newmyer
and Mri Flagg would be very
glad to do so. They may be reach
ed by a telephone call to W. M.
Hamilton of the Portland General

administration workers late today.
Ten of the injured required hos

mately 75 CWA workers were in
volved and the police also report
ed the number of men, known to
them as communists, was from
6 to 20.
The clash was the second in an
many days and was inspired, lead
ers said, by the repeated presence
of the organizers at the Southern
Pacific platform when the train
bearing homeward - bound CWA
workers arrived.
The members of the industrial
union passed out cards to the
workers urging them to attend a
meeting tomorrow night at which
five demands would be formulat

seeking to agitate a strike among

Hold up of Use
In Little Slam
Culbertson Associate
Mrs. William H. Quinn, Culbert
son associate, today explains the
interesting play of a small slam
contract bid and made in the re
cent Statesman tournament. The
board was No. 16. The hand, on
which a six-diamond contract was
reached by west, was:
V 95
KQ J 7 5 4 3 2
West East
A 7 A A 10 8
AKQ7 V 8 2
A J 10 8 5 3 4KQ94
A 10 9 6
A Q 8 5 4 3 2
V J 10 6 4 3
7 2
The play:
North would lead the king of
clubs. West stops and plans the
play of the hand. The crucial play
is oftentimes the first trick. Form
a habit of planning the play of
the hand before yon play from
dummy. This habit is invaluable.
,West takes inventory of .his
losses. He has a. losing spade, so
he decides to play the "hold np."
refusing to take the club trick.
This "bold up" gives him an op
portunity to discard the spade on
the ace of clubs. The second lead
of clubs,' he ruffs, .leads out
trumps, leads hearts, ruffing the
small heart in dummy. Rest of
the hand is a lay-down.
If west plays the ace of spades
from dummy, south will ruff, and
declarer has to lose a spade trick.
So the only chance is to use the
hold up for a discard of the spade.
