Pass 4 V Pass Pass Pass Opening lead—• K When Sidney Lazard. of New Orleans was told that his age of 40 made him the second oldest man on the 1969 American bridge team he replied: "It's frightening." It is even more so to George Rapee who at 50 is by far the oldest man on this year's team. It rather pleases 66-year- old Captain Jacoby who recalls that when Americans won the first World's Championship in 1935, the team ages were from 32 to 36 and our team, the Four Aces, was just as successful in the 30s as the Italian Blue Team has been in the '60s. In spite of their doddering old age, George and Sidney bid and play like 30 - year- olds. Witness Goerge's take' out double of South's one heart opening. The bid made no difference in the final contract. North was going to four hearts from the moment: his partner opened. George led the king of diamonds and looked over dummy to find a way to beat the contract. Then he led his nine of diamonds! Sidney won a surprise trick with his jack and shot back the six of clubs. The defense had two diamond tricks in and were now sure of two club tricks to set the unfortunate declarer. Had George • simply • cashed a second high diamond and shift- ted to a trum p or a spade South almost surely would have made the game. He would have drawn trumps, cashed all the spades, entered dummy with a third trump, led a low club and played the eight or nine. George on lead, would be forced to give a ruff and discard or lead away from his king of clubs. Of course, George 's play was not guaranteed. South might have held the jack of diamonds. Then South would have made an overtrick but George was willing to risk it to beat the contract. Yanks Feared Shots In The Back Longest Walk Across Bridge At Panmunjom LIQUOR—WINE—GIN CHAMPAGNE—MIXES BEER Hot or Cold by the Case Other Beverages Bar Accessories SPECIAL PRICES WOODEN INDIAN Open Evenings Free Parking In Bear Free Delivery •* Phi 24 $'MM By BARRY KRAMER Associated Press Writer ' SAN DIEGO, Calif. (AP) — Several members of the Pueblo crew say they feared they would be shot in the back as they crossed the bridge at Panmun­ jom to freedom. Communications Technichian Sidney J. —Karnes of Belleville, Ark., said the windows of the buses in which the 82 surviving crewmen were driven to the Bridge of no Return were covered with sheets. Karnes said he "didn't know whether to walk or run" across the bridge. But, since he thought he would be shot if he ran—after 11 months of captivity—he says he took the longest walk of his life. Official Navy journalists, reporting Karnes' statements since newsmen have not been permitted to question the Pueblo men on such topics, said others of the crew also believed they would be shot at the bridge. The reports, along with others *,ot a lighter nature about the long captivity, were made public by the Navy. To while away the lonely hours, two crewmen drew detailed designs for a 90-foot sloop. The plans were drawn by Communications Technician 3.C. Earl M. Kisler of St. Louis, Mo., and Communications Technician 2.C. Michael W. Alexander of Richland, Wash., using two-inch pencils which they had hidden. The night before word of their release came, Seaman Robert W. Hill Jr. of Harrisburg, Pa., said he dreamed good news was on the way. He and the other men dreamed often "and you would be surprised how many of the dreams came true," he said. Karnes said he rarely drank coffee before that Jariuary cap­ ture in which one of his shipmates was killed in the attack on the U.S. intelligence ship in the Sea of Japan. The day of his release, he said, he drank dozens of cups of coffee. Said Karnes: "Nothing tastes better than coffee." Quick Quiz Q — How many nations participated in the first modern Olympiad ?
