I KEEP MY FINGERS CROSSED WHILE i SWING: Aces on Bridge "One starts an action Simply because one must do something." —T.S, Eliot The ace of trumps is the most valuable card in the deck. Not only is it sure to win a trick, but used wisely, it can control the fate of a game or slam. South played a low club from dummy, hoping for an error by East, but East put in his jack to hold the trick. Unfortunately for the defense, it was East's last good play. East's subsequent reasoning was good; his execution was faulty. He saw little hope of victory unless his side could win three clubs and the trump ace (West led fourth best), so it was imperative to stop the club ruff in dummy. Impulsively, he led the ace and a second trump. South won, drew the last trump and passed his diamond nine for a winning finesse. Another diamond picked up West's king and South emerged with an overtrick. How does East beat the game? He attacks dummy's trumps, but without relinquishing control. Instead of ace and another, he leads a low trurnp. This maneuver keeps control of the play and South is stymied. If South leads another trump, East wins and the defenders score two more clubs. And if South tries to discard on dummy's diamonds (a heart finesse won't work either). West scores a ruff for the setting trick.

Whenever he gives me a gift, he not only tells me how much he paid for it, he shows me the sales slip. When he takes me out, he never fails to tell me how much the evening cost him. When I wear something new, he asks, "How much did that set you back?" There is much I admire about this man. He owns a very successful business, and he is not poor. But his focus on money makes me uncomfortable. He has asked me to marry him, and my father says he would make a good husband. My mother, however, says, "A man who is that money-minded has got to be tight with a dollar." Tm 22 and he's 32. What do you think? — UNCERTAIN DEAR UNCERTAIN: Perhaps by telling you how much he's spending on you, he is trying to show you how much you mean to him. However, a trait that makes you "uncom- fortable'' before marriage can make you miserable afterward. Since you have doubts, don't rush into anything — wait until you are absolutely certain. DEAR ABBY: I was recently the victim of a scam operated by a female prison inmate. We exchanged letters for nearly a year. Claiming that she needed money for "court costs," she asked me to cash some postal money orders. I was a bit suspicious, but the money orders had official-looking embossed lettering, and I had specifically asked the bank offi- ; cials to inspect them for authenticity. After several months of silence from the inmate, I was notified by the postal inspector that the amount on the money orders had been fraudulently increased. I documented everything, notified the FBI, the parole board and the Justice Department. No prosecution was forthcoming because the inmate was already doing hard time. However, I'm paying for her crime, because the bank that vouched for the authenticity of the money orders debited my account. Abby, please inform your readers of this scheme. — BADLY STUNG IN LONG BEACH DEAR STUNG: Thanks for the warning. Readers who correspond with prison inmates would be wise to avoid financial dealings. DEAR ABBY: Is it possible for a man and his wife who both have brown eyes and black hair to have a blue-eyed baby with blond hair? I must know, because we did. Thanks. — WONDERING IN MIDLAND, TEXAS DEAR WONDERING: In the 19th century, the genetic research of an Austrian monk and botanist named Gregor Mendel resulted in the discovery of "dominant genes" and "recessive genes." Conclusion: A child can inherit a recessive gene from an ancestor and have eye, hair, skin color and other features that are different from either of its parents. This scientific law of the inheritance of physical characteristics is called Mendel's . law. To learn more about it, visit your public library and ask for books about Mendel's ' law of genetic inheritance and recessive genes. ' 1995 Universal f>r«ss Syndicate
