An interesting problem developed in' one of the h a n d s . Declarer- ha'd enough tricks to .make his contract, but he had to find a safe' way:-to cash : :them. '." : ' · · - '-,·" ·.··"'· Although North had spade support, his balanced hand, plus stoppers in the unhid suits, made a "jump:to two "no-trump a standout choice. However, ; when South showed distribution by 'bidding three diamonds, North showed his support and South continued on to game.. West led the heart queen and continued another when this held the trick. Declarer ruffed and could easily see 10 top tricks -- five spades and five diamonds. Naturally, declarer started trumps, and a f t e r two' rounds, West's discard .brought the bad news. ' . . DECLARER KNEW he was in trouble since he couldn't d r a w ' a n o t h e r trump before he cashed dummy's high diamonds. If he did so, the diamonds would be established but there would be no entry to cash them. So declarer prayed for East to h a v e three diamonds and tried to cash them. East ruffed the third round and .the two high clubs defeated the contract. Unlucky? Yes, but there was a better way to play the hand. Declarer didn't have to wish for East to have three diamonds -two would h a v e been enough! After cashing two high diamonds, dummy's last trump should have been led and when declarer d r e w E a s t ' s last trump, dummy's high dia- m o n d could be thrown away as excess baggage.

The S u n d a y a f t e r Thanksgiving, I went to the airport to get on a plane to take me back to New York, where I live. (I had visited my parents, who live in Nebraska.) When I tried to check in I was told that my reservation had been canceled! I never canceled my reservation, and I told them so. Then they informed me that their computer had informed them .that since I was a "no show" on the flight from New York to Nebraska, I was automatically canceled on the return flight. I tried to explain to the man behind the counter . that I was NOT a "no- show" because I was standing rieht there in front of him and 1 showed my ticket which Indicated that I had indeed flown f r o m New York to Omaha. He said he was sorry, but the computer showed me as a "no show" -- and, Abby, if it had not been for another "no show," I wouldn't have been able to board that flight and get back to New York. W h a t should I h a v e done? A "NO SHOW" THAT SHOWED DEAR "NO SHOW": I'd have told the man behind the counter that since the computer insisted t h a t I was a "no show," the airline should reimburse me for the ticket f r o m New York to Omaha. DEAR ABBY: I am 23, single, and have been going with this guy I'll call Jim for four months. Jim is good looking, 28, single and a super person. He's everything I've ever wanted in a man or husband. . ' · We have a lot in common and seem very compatible. Our relationship has developed into something quite serious, but neither of us is in any hurry to get married. The only thing I can't cope with much longer is Jim's constantly reminding me that he has always had a very active sex life and now he is sexually frustrated. Although I feel very sorry for him, I sure/ can't help him out be^, cause I am saving" myself for marriage. I just can't see myself giving in .to. a man jn order to relieve him of his sexual frustrations, but Jim tells me'he may. have to date other girls for that purpose if I refuse him. I don't want to lose him; but I don't want to give in. either. Can you help me? STILL PURE DEAR STILL: I don't know what Jim does for a^ living, but he'd make a-t good salesman. Hang in,; there. If you were to give; 7 in, you might lose him .. anyway. -: .~. Bid With Corn South holds: .
