The Aces on bridge IRA G. CORN JR. HAM CAPTAIN In the ACBL Spring National Tournament played in New York City, the winners of the Golder Master Pairs were Steve Alpern of Skokie, 111., and Dr. Norman Williams of Pittsburgh. One hand featured the correct third hand play to the first trick. If "third/ hand high",is an automatic play for any of my readers,. I urge you to study today's ; hand with care. · " West led the fourth-best heart and declarer-played dummy's jack. The Easts who always-play third hand high'covered, and declarer took the king. The club ace was knocked out and East returned a heart. West won and cleared the suit and de- c l a r e r had two heart tricks. Some declarers played safely for nine tricks and cashed all their winners. Others tried the diamond finesse in a try for overtricks. Nothing really made any difference and the defense was held to four tricks. NOW OBSERVE what happened when East refused to follow general rules. East's heart spots and dummy's four made it clear that West had led f r o m a four-card suit. T h e r e f o r e , declarer's most likely holding was A- 8 or K-8. H it was A-8, declarer was always due two tricks and East's play would make no difference. But if declarer had K-8, it was imperative that East not play the queen! After East played the six, the hand could no longer be made. Regardless of which minor suit declarer played first, the d e f e n s e could a l w a y s manage three heart tricks and two minor suit tricks for down one. But what if West had led from four hearts headed by the A-K and declarer's diamonds were solid? An unlikely situation, but one that would be most NORTH . * K Q 7 / ' 4 108'2 # K J 4 2 ·WEST ,'·' - EAST 4 6 5 4,' * 10 8 3 2 ' , ¥ A 9 7 5 T Q 6 3 2 + K 4 3 , 4 9 6 5 4 8 5 3 + A 9 SOUTH 6 A J 9 : K 8 A Q J 7 4 Q - 1 0 7 6 Vulnerable: Both, Dealer: South, The bidding: South West North East INT Pass 3 NT All Pass Opening leads: Five of hearts. embarrassing. To cover such contingencies, East should have his post mortem ready. Rather than ·explain "third hand low" to an unbelieving partner, it's usually best to claim that the heart queen had been hidden among the diamonds.

DEAR ABBY Loggers just not her types By ABIGAIL VAN BUREN DEAR ABBY: I am an attractive female divorcee who recently retired after a long, distinguished career as a university English professor. Now that I have a great deal of free time, I would like to find suitable male companionship. Although I ' receive numerous offers (the loggers in this town are practically beating my door down), I don't know how to meet men who could appreciate my best qualities, such as the art of conversation. There must be some other retired women in small towns with similar problems. Have you any suggestions? IDLE BUT ANXIOUS IN IDAHO DEAR ANXIOUS: Enroll in an adult education class and do a lot of listening. Conversation could be considered "dessert," and since man cannot live on dessert alone, are you prepared to pnn vide some meat'-and potatoes? / DEAR ABBY: I just had to write to defend that woman who writes notes to her husband to remind him of things. I've been doing it for years. x ; First of all, that letter couldn't have been written by my husband because he doesn't believe in .communication, and note-writing is a form of communication. This wooden Indian I'm married to might send up smoke signals if he could find his lighter, but on the other'-, hand, fires within the city limits of Dallas are frowned upon. Anyway, I say three cheers, for that note-writing wife. I sure wish my husband would write me a Lakewood club marks 22rid year Lakewood Women's Club will celebrate its 22nd anniversary Tuesday during luncheon meeting at Lakewood Country Club, beginning at 11 a.m. Mrs. James Woods, president, is in charge of arrangements.

The ultimate in humiliation, women" confide, is not in being belittled, berated, or even beaten. It's being ignored! DEAR ABBY: I recently visited a friend in his New York apartment. We hadn't seen each other for 15 years. While he was in the kitchen mixing us drinks, I noticed that he had a splendid library. Then I noticed that he had a few books that I also owned. I don't know what made me do it, but I took those books down from the shelf and turned to the fly leaves, and sure enough, my name was there! He had borrowed those books from me years ago, and neglected to return . them. I put them back before he returned, and said nothing. Since then my irritation has grown. Should I now tell him that I want my books back? IRKED IN INDIANA DEAR IRKED: Certainly. No wonder your friend has such a "splendid library." He's a "collector." DEAR ABBY: This is to encourage the 52-year-old woman whose husband wants a divorce. Let him have it, then sharpen up some of your old skills and get out on your own. I was 47 when my husband entered his second childhood. He wanted a divorce to marry a younger woman. I fought and wept and begged! I thought my life was over. I f i n a l l y came to my senses and let him go. At age 48, I went to work as a secretary, married my boss two years later, and couldn't be happier. A 52-year-old woman can do anything a younger woman can do except maybe have a baby. And what 52-year-old woman in her right mind would want that?
