TIUTC- r ore he had to throw one heart ; and both of his clubs. j West's three discards wore 1 easy. Ho got rid of throe little clubs but did signal club strength by throwing hi^li and then low. Now it was up to Sidney to work out a way to make nine tricks. He could try to drop the queen of hearts. He could try a finesse against West but you don't make the American team i/y trying losing plays. Sidney was pretty sure that he could I look right into East's mind.

George Rapco of Now York, sitting North, responded one heart to check for major suit and no- trump possibilities and the bidding proceeded to three- no- trump in spite of East's one - spade overcall. West studied for some time and finally decided to open his partner's suit. He led the 10 of spades and East made the good play of signaling strength with the nine rather than playing the ace or the king.

WORLD ALMANAC FACTS A profile familiar to most Americans, but whose identity is known by few, is the noble Indian head on the nickel designed by sculptor James Earle Fraser, which first appeared in 1913. In 1931, The World Almanac notes, Fraser revealed that the profile was actually a composite of three Indians named Iron Tail, Two Moons and a third Indian whom he could no longer recall.
