    Re: Contr(a/y)/Square, etc.

    Ladies' chain 40 years ago was over and back.  If you only went over it was 
    half ladies' chain.  Nowadays the half chain is more common and if it is a 
    'round trip' the caller will say 'chain over and chain back'.  As far as 
    twirling during the turn, it is an individual choice.  I'm not interested in 
    twirling so I keep my left hand down and the man cannot raise it and twirl 
    me.  I put my right hand behind me so the man can hold it for a 'courtesy 
    turn'.  One gets much more eye contact with this turn than with the twirls.
