  • Description

    Titles read: "Meet Mr. Ely Culbertson, the famous winner who has a word to say about Bridge, generally - ".

    Location of events unknown - London?

    M/S of Bridge player Ely Culbertson, talking about the game of Bridge, and how it can be relaxing to play as it allows you to forget about all other things. He says he has developed a method of using Bridge to choose the ideal wife or husband - if a woman throws down her cards in a sloppy and nonchalant manner, then "the bottoms of your inner and outer garments will never be sewn up for the rest of your married life". A man who holds his cards very close to his chest, will surely scrutinise every bill with a microscope, and will lose his wife's pin money at Bridge.
