The 1932 crop ;&•' the United
States was reported below the pre

but the enormous carry - over
makes the total supply greater
than world consumption for the
last two years.
It was estimated four years
would be required to reduce the
carry-over to normal proportions,
even at the average consumption
rate of the last 10 years. Consump
tion at present is far below that
rate. However, the report said,
the supply could be reduced to
normal in) a year and a half at the
high 1926-29 consumption level.

relieved by Black-Draught
“I decided to take Thedford’s
Black-Draught, as I had been hav
ing bilious spells,” writes Mr.
Charles E. Stevens, of Columbus,
Ind. ‘‘When I get bilious, I feel
oloomr QTld tirnd ond d/>
like doing my work. It is hard to
tell how I feel, but I do not feel
good. I get awfully dizzy. I know
then that I had better take some
thing. After I found how good
Black-Draught is, that is what I
have used. I guess it rids me of
the bile, for I feel better — don’t
feel like I am dropping off to sleep
every time I sit down. That, to
me, is a very bad feeling.”
Now you can get Black-Draught in
the form of a SYRUP, for Children.

ARTICLE No. 19
. In the preceding article, a number of interesting hands were given for analy
sis. If you have not already decided on the proper play or bid, do so now
before you read the solution in each instance. A comparison of your opinion
with the writer’s solution will prove most interesting and should help to
improve your game.
Solutions to Last Week’s Problems
Hand No. 1
Hearts — Q, 9, 8, 6, 5, 3
Clubs — 8, 4
Diamonds — A, 7
Spades — A, 8, 6
: Y :
: A B :
: Z :
No score, first game. Z dealt and bid
one club, A one heart and Y doubled.
B now bid one spade and Z and A
passed. What should Y now bid and
Solution: Y should bid one no trump
at either Auction or Contract. This bid
should indicate at least one stopper in
spades and a fair outside hand. His
previous double of one heart has shown
his partner great strength in that suit,
so it is now up to Z to decide whether
it is better to try for game in no trump
or a suit.
Hand No. 2
Hearts — 8, 5
Clubs — 1,2
Diamonds — K, J, 9, 5, 2
Spades — Q, 8, 4, 3
Hearts - Q, 10, 9 -—
Clubs — A, Q, 10, 8, 6, 3 : Y :
Diamonds — Q, 10, 7 : A B : *
Spades — 9 : Z :
No score, rubber game. Z dealt and
bid one no trump, _A bid two clubs, Y
passed, B bid two no trump and all
passed. Z opened the five of spades, A
played the nine, Y the queen and B
won the trick with the ace. B now led
the king of clubs, followed with jack,
winning the trick in A’s hand with the
queen. All followed, so that the clubs
are set up. B then led the ace of clubs.
What should Y discard and why?
Solution: Y should discard the nine
of diamonds to show his partner at
once that the only tricks in his hand
are in the diamond suit. There are
three discards cpming and, unless Z is
informed at once that Y can protect
diamonds, he may be forced to discard
to his disadvantage. Don't hesitate to
inform your partner at once of strength
in your hand when you see that he will
be obliged to discard several times. If
he has to guess, he probably will guess
wrong; so make it easy for him. A high
discard indicates strength in the suit
Hand No. 3
Hearts— 10, 9, 7, 6, 4
Clubs —A, K, 10
Diamonds — A, Q, 10, 9
Spades — 3
No score, first game. Z dealt and bid
one spade and A passed. What should
\ now bid with the foregoing hand
Solution: At Auction, Y should bid
two hearts and, if Z rebids spades, Y
should bid two no trump. A suit bid
is always preferable to a no trump bid,
particularly with a singleton of part
At Contract, Y should bid three
no trump. The hand is so strong that
Z may not have a rebid and yet game
is fairly certain in no trump and it is
up to Y to try for game.
Hand No. 4
-Hearts — 7
: Y : Clubs - Q
: A B : Diamonds — J, 10, 9, 4, 2
: Z : Spades — A, Q, 10, 9, 5, 3
No score and A B a game in. Z dealt
and passed. A and Y passed and B bid
one spade. Z bid two hearts, A two
spades, Y three hearts and B three
spades. Z now bid four hearts, A four
spades and Y five hearts. B and Z
passed, A doubled and Y passed. What
should B now bid and why?
Solution: B should bid five spades
at either Auction or Contract. His
hand is too unbalanced to play to
defeat five hearts, particularly after a
double raise by A. This double raise
by A should indicate at least four
spades, so that A B cannot hope to
win more than one spade trick against
a five-heart bid, therefore Y Z will either
make the bid or only be defeated by
one trick. B should bid five spades
without any question.
Hand No. 5
Hearts — A -
Clubs — 8,4,2 : Y :
Diamonds — A, 5 : A B :
Spades — J, 9, 8, 7, 6, 4, 3 : Z :
No score, rubber game. Z dealt and
bid one spade. A passed, Y bid one no
trump and B and Z passed. What
should A bid with the foregoing hand
A should bid two spades, not with
the hope of making the bid, but with
the hope that it will save game and
rubber. A will probably lose one or two
tricks, with a two-spade bid, but even
if it is doubled, it will be a cheap way
to save the certain loss of game and
rubber if he allows Y Z to play the
hand at no trump.
A should pass. His opponents have
not contracted for game, and he has
no chance for game in spades.
