C a n a s t a Is Fun By GLADYS TTYATT From Tli e Mail Bag I' have a letter in which Mr. C.C.W. takes me to task thus: "You state in the Citizen of. Oct. 17 that one may pick up the exposed card If they have a canasta of the sanae jnumeral, and of course the remain- Ing, cards of the up-pile'. You state .further.that it anyone disputes this act, to ask them to show proof that It isn't legal and that they cannot do so. One Reference ' "Well, Gladys, you tripped yourself there, my good lady. If you ·will purchase a copy of 'Official 'Canasta' (Strategy and Expert Play) by M. A. Goldsmith, author .'of Bridge Made Easy and Fifty Card- Games, you will find, on .page 24 under title Pick-ups after First Meld, 'Having made your ;flrst meld, you may pick up the exposed card (and with it the discard pack) as follows: If it can be added to your melds, other than canastas!' " ' "Then on pa^e , 25, same authority, under title, 'When Can You" A d d - A Card To A Canasta? 1 the paragraph, reads as follows: If you have melded a canasta, you may not take the exposed card to . .add to it, as you would with a meld, but at any time it is,your 'turn to play, you may add addi- 'tional like cards from your hand ,to .canastas!' "I am e n c l o s i n g a return, stamped envelope for reply as ·there are three families of us who would like to have, the answer..as .we play regularly each week ''at alternate homes." . Quoted Correctly . I have, the book mentioned by this reader and he has indeed quoted it correctly.. Ma}'be I] .should 'not have said that "no- the discard pile." where" in print could you find the statement that it is illegal to take the discard pile when its up-card matches your closed canasta. Mav- be I should have snid that "nowhere in the current literature on canasta" can you find it. Readers of these pieces will remember our discussions of canasta's dark ages when there was no authoritative body to pass on the rules. Almost every writer on the game was going his own sweet way and it was hard to find two who agreed on even the essentials. s A glance at the title page will show that the book mentioned by Mr. C.C.W. was a product of that period of confusion. The date there is 1949. It was not until 1950 that the celebrated meeting of the country's card experts was held in New York. They met to work out a standard set of rules to canasta to which all of them would adhere. This they did. The result was the new set of "Official Laws" by which we play today. May Take Pack Let me repeat here with all emphasis--You "may take an unfrozen discard pile whose top card matches your closed canasta. The official rules permit it and no ex-pert now disagrees. Authority? Here's Culbertson, page 58 in Culberison on Canasta, "A discard matching one of your canastas may be taken up and added to your canasta--and of course the pack goes with it." And Jacoby's Complete. Canasta, page 128, "A closed canasta is just the same as any -other meld. You may add to a "closed canasta from your hand; or. If the top card of the discard pile matches your closed canasta, you may add the top card to the canasta and' take the rest of .
