West argues that his spade shift was proper because declarer might have had the Q-10-7-5 of hearts, in which case the king play at trick three would prove fatal. "I see do flaw in his argument, because I would have returned the six had I held the A-6-2. Is there any way for West to know to lead the king of hearts? W.H.M." Perhaps the best way of answering the question is to go back to East's play at trick two. It is true that in returning partner's suit it is customary to lead back your original fourth best card. This ordinarly permits the other defender to pinpoint declarer's exact length and strength in the suit. But, as we have seen, the six play in the present case does not actually clarify the position for West because East's return can theoretically be based on either of two different holdings. West might possibly have cashed the king of hearts, hoping for the best, but he could not be sure it would turn out right. Oddly enough, East's proper return is the deuce of hearts, not the six! True, this would cause West to think that East held only four hearts and South, therefore, three. But West could then safely continue with the king, and the actual situation would thus become exposed, two-way street. North 1 2 3 NT HJA t'jFjffiPb j LEiP T ADAT T I 'CDK!

And now, back to earth, where it must be admitted that this preview is slightly analogous to the story of the proverbial poor man who unexpectedly came into $1 million, then suffered an intense depression when he discovered it was only $950,000. In other words, if you care anything at all for symphonic music, please; tune out the minor irritations and tune in to the glory of an orchestra in harmony with the enormous demands of symphonic music. music sounds so pedestrian. No matter whether it is the "Italian" symphony or the "Hebrides" overture, the feeling persists, that it all emanated from some town in Germany. Alas, the Chicago orchestra gives a proficient if rather boring interpretation, thereby adding not one cubit to the symphony's already meager stature. As for Solti, it defies explanation that a musician who has made such a tremendous international reputation conducting and recording music of the caliber of Richard Wagner's Ring cycle, Richard Strauss' operas and Gustav Mahler's symphonies, will play excerpts from Mendelssohn's incidental music to "A Midsummer Night's Dream," and the same composer's "Symphony No. 4 in A Major (Italian)." The program opens in a scintillating manner with a dazzling example of virtuoso string playing in the Overture. The texture is feather light while still retaining its richness, and the technique is flawless. When the winds and brass add color to the music, the overall brilliance is simply augmented. The incidental music reveals such a considerable wealth of imagination with its lovely nuances, sparkling rhythms and sensitive orchestration, that it makes one wonder why so much of Mendelssohn's other It is difficult to imagine, but tonight marks the American television debut of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra under its principal conductor, Sir Georg Solti. It's difficult to imagine because the Chicago orchestra is unquestionably one of the finest in the world, and, on his night, Solti embraces greatness. Because this is such an auspicious occasion, the next question is, why choose an all-Mendelssohn program to celebrate it? With the full range of symphonic repertoire available, the choice is inexplicably lightweight. Tonight at 9 on Channel 2, the orchestra Alan Jenkins J
