BROWN UPI Travel Edilor CHICHEN-ITZA, Mexico (UPI) - "Don't get loo close to Ihe edge," warned our Mexican guide, looking at Ihe young blonde American, her fingers, wrisls, neck and ears dripping wilh jewelry, "We need rain." We were standing near the rim of the Well of Sacrifice in what remains of the ancient Maya capital of Chichen-Itza in Mexico's Yucatan, A descendant of the people who built a great culture and civilization in the jungles and mountains of Middle America while Europe was still fumbling through the Dark Ages, our guide said the ancient Maya believed their Rain God lived in the cenote. A natural pit about 350 feet long and 150 feet wide, Ibe elliptical cenote has almost vertical limestone walls dropping about 70 feet to the mirrorlike murky jade-green water. "In times of severe drought, the high priest would selecl beautiful young maidens lo be thrown into the well as sacrifices," the guide said. "They were dressed in the finest clothes and adorned wilh ornaments made of gold and jade." "Quien sabe?" he replied when pressed whether the story ol the sacrificed virgins was fact or ficlion. It is a matter of record, however, that divers employed by Edward Thompson, then the U.S. consul in the Yucatan, in 1904 did recover human bones, ceremonial knives, balls of copal incense and ornaments and other artifacts of gold and carved jade. The cenote is a major highlight on the tour of Chichen-llza, one of the outstanding archaeologial finds in the Americas, which sprawls over 18 square miles of scrub jungle in the peninsula svashed by Ihe Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea. The well — where a few scraggly Irees provided the only shelter from the blazing midday tropical sun — is about 350 yards from the main square Religion In America By David E.

OK play — even an innocent- looking one — sometimes makes a world of difference. Consider this deal from 4he Vanderbill team of four championship, where West (Harry Harkavy of Miami Beach) opened Ihe bidding with one diamond, which his partner raised lo three. South bid three hearts and Harkavy was faced with a difficult problem. He could have passed to show a minimum opening bid; he could have voluntarily bid three notrutnp; or he could double. Alter jiving due weight to East's game-forcing jump-raise lo three diamonds, Harkavy elected todouble and everybody passed. As it turned out, South would have done much better to run to four clubs, but his pass of three hearts doubled was certainly reasonable. Harlavy led the ace and another diamond, following the usual procedure of trying to shorten declarer in trumps. Declarer ruffed and returned a low trump, whereupon Harkavy made the crucial play of the ace! He led another diamond, which South ruffed, and by now West and declarer each had only Ihree trumps left. Declarer could (hen do no better lhan cash the K-Q-J of hearts and ace o! clubs, after which he had to concede Ihe remaining tricks to go down three — 800 points. The outcome would have been altogether different if Harkavy had followed low on declarer's. trump lead lo dummy at trick three. Had he ducked, as many players might have done, he would have had ample cause to rue Ihe day. Declarer would next have taken a club finesse and made the contract with an overticX for a score of 930 points.
