(UPI) - A prisoner who olten complained about flammable foam mattresses is being given a large share of the credit for a state decision lo replace Ihe mattresses in Connecticut institutions. The Norwich Bulletin, which exposed Ihe hazardous mal- tresses, says Alexander DcSimonc's one-man crusade is finally paying of I. The state replaced 2,000 foam mattresses at "high-risk" institutions and planned lo replace about 20.000 others. "For more than a year, DeSimonc has been writing stale and tederal officials there was an inhcrenl danger in the continued use of polyurethane mattresses in correctional facilities" the Bulletin said. DeSimone, serving time for assault and being an accessory to a burglary, was at the Brooklyn Correctional facility last year when a mentally disturbed inmate lit a mattress and burned to death. The Bulletin rcporled a second Connecticut inmale, also adjudged disturbed, died as a resull ol lighting his mattress and about a dozen guards or inmales have been injured during the past two years. DeSimone wrote lo numerous officials, including Sen. Abraham A. Ribicoff and Corrections Commissioner John Manson, but it was not until the newspaper got involved changes were made. The Bulletin quoted Manson as saying in a leller to Ribicoff lasl monlh lhat corrections officials were aware of the matlress ptoblem before DeSimone began his campaign. Manson said they heard little about it from DeSimone until several months ago, soon after DeSimone was refused a furlough.

It was a sound contract that would ordinarily have been made, but Forquet ran into a combination of bad luck and good defense — and went down one. Wat (Edgar Kaplan) made Ihe normal lead of the jack of clubs and East (Norman Kay) realized lhat straightforward defense would nol produce more than Ihree tricks (two clubs and a spade). He therefore overtook the jack of dubs withlhequeenand returned the singleton Jack of diamonds. Declarer won the return in dummy with the queen, led the jack of trumps, which held, and continued wilh a trump, won by Kay with the ace. Kay now underled his A-K of dubs, Kaplan winning the club wilh the ten. Kaplan returned a diamond and Kay rutted to put Ihe contract down one. This high-class defense was later duplicated al the second table by the Italian East-West pair, Avarelli and Belladonna. They also cooperated perfectly to defeat four spades in the same way, and the deal proved to be a washout. In Connecticut It's Colonial Bank's N.O.W.
