League Will Hold Bridge Classes

Men, Coeds
May Register
For Lessons
Students who attend the bridge
lessons sponsored by the League
will learn that it takes brains just
to be a "dummy."
Bridge lessons will start Tues-
day, Oct. 6, and anyone who is
interested in answering the call
"Fourth for bridge" is eligible to

CLASSES WILL be taught by Ed
Simons, who is entering his fourth
year of teaching bridge.
All students, faculty members
and Ann Arbor residents may
buy their tickets at the Under-
graduate Office daily in the
, League.
The price for the lessons is $3.50.
Because the series extends over a
ten week period, the fee per ses-
sion is 35 cents.
KIBITZERS can now try their
actual skill in bridge by joining
the beginners class which 'will be
held every Tuesday from 7 to 8:30
For those who have had more
practice with no trump bidding
or the grand slam, there will be
intermediate classes from 8:30
to 10 p.m. where they can learn
more card skills.
At the classes students not only
receive detailed instructions, but
also learn while they play. Usually
the last 15 minutes is set aside for
actual practice.
Typewritten instructions sum-
marizing the proper play and de-
tails of the game are presented to
the bridge fans after each lesson.

-Daily-Malcolm Shatz
THOUGHT PROVOKING-While before and after dinner are the
most popular times, coeds and men on campus may be found in
their residences playing bridge at almost any hour classes aren't in
session to almost all hours. For those who do not know how to play
or would like to improve their game, the League is once again
sponsoring classes. Students may register for these lessons now
at the League.

find cokes, potato chips and pret-
