The exercise, now scheduled for Jan. 29-Feb. 4, was moved up six months because of the Soviet occupation oi Czechoslovakia last August. The Soviet Union and its allie3 have, protested the maneuvers as an "aggressive" act.

Pass 3N.T. Pass Pass Pass Opening lead—A 3 We would be interested in a statistical count of how many East players actually passed today's hand in the continent wide charity game. In theory there is no opening bid here but in practice we would open one club in view of the desire for a club lead if on defense, and the feeling of security engendered by possession of three quick tricks in case partner should get around to doubling some contract. - The club opening won't keep North and South out of the bidding and they will probably wind up at some number of n-> trump. If West makes his coirect opening lead of the dence of clubs and East returns a low club after taking his king, South will wind up with eight tricks for plus 120 if he stopped below game and minus 100 if he reached it. If East passes; there is a very good chance that North and Tbuth will reach game. South has oniy 15 points but many players will open one no-trump anyway and North can surely gamble on game in view of his five- card diamond suit. Most of these bidders will be »ewarded. If West opens the jack of hearts, East will be in with the ace. He may return the suit whereupon South will take 10 tricks. He may lead the king or ace of clubs and continue, whereupon clubs will lock and South make his game on the nose. East is most unlikely to lead a low club and beat the contract. With the spade opening it is just as hard to find the right detense. South may rise with dummy's ace and lead a heart. It would require almost clairvoyance for East to hop with the ace and lead a low club. WHY PAY MORE? BUY FOR LESS! ( DURING OUR BIG WEEK-LONG SALE AT SUMMERS DODGE 1967 DODGE DART 2 DR.
