Help with 3 input AND gate

Okay, so Im trying to use the breadboard and I have a hard time with a three input AND gate. Guess I can do a schematic

http://imageiso.com/out.php/i17298_3inputandgate.JPG [Broken]

So in my bread board, I have pins 1 and 2 as inputs..with pin 3 as a LED (output), and I have a jumper connecting pins 3 and 4 cause the result of the first and gate determines if the second AND Gates lights the LED..and I have pin 5 as the input..and pin 6 in another LED..now I connected pin 7 to the ground and pin 14 to +5V..this is the problem: the first and gate works..first LED (on pin3) lights up, but the second one doesnt

I tested everything and I reconnected it to my breadboard..sorry I dont have a picture of it so Im curious why the second one wont light up..Any ideas guys?

How exactly have you connected pin 3 to both an LED and to pin 4?
