Asbury Park PressTuesday, July 13.1993 D7 Stepping Out PanoramaLifestyle By Alfred Shelnwold and Frank Stewart , ne of your gurus agreed to play Ion a team with Unlucky Louie. We figured that, if nothing else, we'd get plenty of column material. On the deal shown today, the contract was four hearts at both tables. The defenders took two spades and then led a club. At one table, Louie won and tried to draw trumps with the A-K-Q. When East discarded, Louie couldn't afford to continue trumps since the defense would cash spades. Instead, he started the diamonds. West waited to ruff the fourth diamond, and Louie had to lose a club. Down one. RUFF IN DUMMY: Declarer at our table fared better. He won the club at Trick Three, cashed a high trump and next led the ten! We took the jack, but were then helpless. If we led a spade, South would ruff in dummy, draw trumps, and run diamonds to pitch a club. "Why didn't you duck a trump to keep control?" we asked Louie. His answer was no surprise. "When," he growled, "have I ever been in control of anything at the bridge table?"

When you respond with two four-card major suits, bid hearts first. Partner can raise with four-card heart support; otherwise he may bid one spade, and you'll raise him. Avoid a response of INT; look first for a trump suit. Alfred Sheinwold and Frank Stewart's syndicated column appears every day.

By Heloise Cash belt thwarts thieves 01 a recent vacation the un- thinkable happened my 'Purse was stolen and we lost all of our credit cards and money. We were forced to return home early. Obviously, this ruined the vacation for everyone. I want to pass along a warning to others to please keep close watch on your purse or wallet. Vianne Simpson, Philadelphia, Pa. We all think it won't happen to us! Thanks for the reminder. With summer in full swing and many families vacationing, please take the time to read the following: Don't carry excess amounts of cash! It's safer to carry traveler's checks. To keep pickpockets away, put mphey in a money belt inside your clothing, and don't flash your money either. An automated teller machine (ATM) card could sure help out in a pinch. Call your bank to see if there are machines that will take your card where you are traveling. Take a few minutes and sort through your credit cards. Only take the ones that you know for certain you will use. Then divide the ones you are taking with your spousepartner. This way if one purse or wallet gets stolen you will still have some cards. This could sure make things easier. Keep credit cards separate from cash. In the case of a theft, both won't be gone. I hope these will help one and all to have a safe and happy summer vacation. D Heloise's syndicated column appears every day except Saturday.

Adopted children are often slighted DEAR ABBY: I am writing in response to the letter from a birth mother whose daughter was adopted shortly after birth. You responded with a beautiful poem titled "Legacy of an Adopted Child." I can certainly relate to this poem, being the mother of two children, an 11-year-old son by birth, and an adopted 2-year-old daughter from Korea.
