North could have saved the situation had he used the grand slam force convention. At the point when South responded five hearts, showing two aces, North should have bid six clubs. This would have by-passed the Blackwood bid of five notrump directed at kings, and hence would have served as an inquiry about South's trump holding (spades had already been agreed upon as the trump suit). South would respond six spades denying possession of the A-Q, with which he would bid seven spades and the bidding would have ended right there. All of which proves that in the proper setting the grand slam force is a highly effective convention. At the second table, with the U..S. North-South, the bidding started exactly the same way. But over South's four spade bid, North, completely disregarding Blackwood and the grand slam force as though he had never heard of either of them, went directly to six spades, which closed the auction. Highly unscientific, you might say, but nevertheless highly effective. North made twelve tricks, chalked up a slam, and went on to the next hand. I win, tails you lose.

This deal occurred in a match between Argentina and the United States. At the first table, with Argentina North-South, the bidding went as shown. North's five notrump bid was a continuation of Blackwood and asked for kings. At the same time, it guaranteed that the partnership had all four aces. Strongly Influenced by his powerful suit, South ignored his partner's inquiry for kings and bid seven diamonds.

Today's Cryptoqulp clue: A equals C WTS OHKCMFL OHKCMFS WFALFIW JB JHS BTKAFIW TV's 'Cat on Hot Tin Doesnt Match Film at 10 p.m. on Channel 2, when Soviet exile ballet star Mikhail Baryshnikov teams with three ballerinas from the American Ballet Theatre in a 60-minute "Wolf Trap" special. The dancing is, of course, superb. Yet despite the artistry of the three women Gelsey Kirkland, Maryine Van Hamel and Marianna Tcherkassky they do appear unequal to partner Baryshnikov's prodigious talents. His movements are so fluid they genuinely shout out to be recognized as poetry in motion. The only minus in the whole program is the playing of the orchestra, which is Tennessee Williams' classic, prize-winning drama, "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof," probes the smoldering family relationships on a Mississippi plantation. The entire play reeks of an elemental earthiness. It is as if the members of the family were harvested in the fields rather than reared at home. If there is one ingredient quite definitely missing from the script, it is any form of sophistication. Raw issues and raw solutions are the essence of this mighty tale, which can be seen tonight on Channels 5 and 7 at 9. Therefore, it is not easy to understand why anyone would consider Sir Lawrence Olivier ideal for the very salty, American role of Big Daddy Pollitt, an outspoken cotton grower. It's not that he lacks any degree of capability, simply an acknowledgement that no one can do everything. Being a brilliant actor, he does manage a creditable characterization. But alas, on his shoulder sits the overwhelming presence of the big screen's biggest Big Daddy of them all, Burl Ives. The same criticism can be leveled at the casting of Natalie Wood as Maggie the Cat, and her husband, Robert Wagner, as the whisky-soaked Brick. Compared to the bitterness and longing Elizabeth Taylor and Paul Newman expressed in the movie, they would have been better suited to playing Oscar Wilde's comedy of manners, "The Importance of Being Earnest." In other words it just wasn't convincing, and how could it be since the parts demand dimension not present in the Wagners' repertoire. Probably the most successful casting was that of Maureen Stapleton as Big Mama. Despite the shortcomings, and there are many in this production, it will take a good program to beat it out of first place. For dance lovers there is a special treat 9 Alan Jenkins w T
