Oswald: "There are many factors but I believe the most important is the willingness to make a decision rather than to pass the buck to partner." Jim: "I don't suppose you mean that a really great player Will make all decisions for the partnership." Oswald: "Not, at all. You have heard me describe the play 6f deliberatley overtaking partner's trick and then not knowing what- to do next as the specialty of a certain great but definitely not very great player. Still, this man was a better partner than the Milquetoast who never took a stand of any sort." Jim: "Imagine that Sidney Lazard of New Orleans possesses the quality of decisiveness." Oswald: "He certainly does have it. Here is a hand from a team game in which he sat East. Note his double of four spades." Jim: "A cautious player might pass the buck to partner. He has a minimum opening bid with a great deal of his strength Sn spades." Oswald: "Right—No guarantee went with the double and Sidney wag delighted to find that the actual penalty turned out to be three tricks. South had to lose two trumps, two hearts and two clubs." Jim: "He was even happier when the result came in from the other table. The other East did not double and the other West went to five hearts. South doubled and set the hand only one trick." Oswald: "If he had underfed his ace of diamonds he could have actually beaten it two but one down was good enough." DIX MX. VERNON WEATHER Saturday high 20 low 2 above. Sunday high 30, low 5 above.
