B12-Palm Beach Post. Friday, December 10, 1976 HOROSCOPE ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Not a good day for recreational activities since you have much work to do. Show gentility toward others and gain their goodwill. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Arrange matters at home so that there is more harmony there. Not a good time to start a new project. Be logical. GEMINI (May 21 to June 21) Try not to criticize others so much and gain their goodwill. Much care must be exercised in motion to avoid possible accident. MOON CHILDREN (June 22 to July 21) You may want to change existing conditions, but this could lead to disaster now. Count your blessings instead. LEO (July 22 to Aug. 21) Don't delay handling important career matters. Also, don't rely on a busy friend for assistance with some problem you have. VIRGO (Aug. 22 to Sept. 22) Plan time for right handling of personal matters and try not to involve others in them. Evening is fine for the social side of life. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) It is better to work alone today instead of getting into group activities which would not work out well now. Think constructively. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Take care you don't jeopardize your reputation in any way in the outside world today. Be sure to keep your promises to others. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Be certain to study a new idea you have from every conceivable angle. Avoid one who has an eye on your assets. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) Make sure you first know the facts before discussing an important problem with mate. Study your responsibilities well. AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) Not a good day to have talks with associates on a mutual venture since they could be under tension of some sort. PISCES (Feb. 20 to March 20) Be more enthused about work awaiting your attention. Don't engage in activities that could endanger your health.

While it's true that overcalls at the two level represent good hands, still there's a limit to how strong they can be. This hand exceeds that limit. A double potentially shows a much stronger hand than an overcall.

The notrump overcall shows 16 to 18 points, balanced distribution, and at least one stopper in the adverse suit. 2. Pass. It would be dangerous to bid two hearts with such a shaky suit, because, if the next player doubled, the outcome might prove disastrous. Overcalls should be based primarily on how many tricks you can take, not on how many points you have. The safety of the overcall is nearly always the first consideration. True, this hand would rank as an opening bid as dealer before the relative strength of the other three hands is known but once your right-hand opponent makes an opening bid, you should tread cautiously. The bidding may develop so that you can enter the fray later on more safely, but until then T I IM B'l OE30EI TE L LI E XlElSl than that, you double first and then bid hearts. This makes it possible for your partner to distinguish between bids that are aimed at getting to game and those aiming at a part score. 4. Two diamonds. Here you have the high-card values for a double, but it is tactically better to overcall with two diamonds. If you doubled, there would be too much danger of finding yourself unable to show both minor suits later on. Your partner is likely to respond to a double in hearts, and you lack support for that suit. It is better to run the risk of being dropped at two diamonds, risking the loss of a problematical minor-suit game, than to run the danger of landing in the wrong contract by losing valuable bidding space with a double. Practical considerations frequently outweigh technical requirements. 12-10 Answer to yesterday's puzzle. STEVE CANYON : ...WE'LL A1I55 f HOHO.'
