B-6-INDEPCNDENT AM) Lei* MKH, C«llf., Frt., Ftb. n, 1MI PRESS-TELESRAM (PM) JACOBY Player is tripped by move When two experts sit down to play together for the first time they usually discuss their defensive signals. One of the more common defensive signals is to echo (play high, then low) to show an even number of c a r d s in a suit while if you simply play normally you are showing an odd number. If they are high-ranking experts they usually say that they only use these signals when there is a good reason to help their partner while if they want to fool declarer they discard any way they fed like. .. West opened the queen of diamonds and continued the suit. How could he possibly tell that a club shift would beat the hand while a dimond continuation would allow declarer to bring home the bacon? South ruffed the second dimonri and led his king of trumps. East took his ace and led a third diamond. South ruffed high and led a t r u m p to dummy's 10. SOUTH was a near-expert who considered himself a master of cunning plays. He knew that he needed four spade tricks to make his contract since he had to park one of dummy's losing clubs on his fourth spade. He decided that if he studied awhile before playing a high spade from dummy, he might cause an opponent to think that his partner held the spade ar.R. He hesitated awhile and then played dummy's king of spades. East played the three. West was a real expert. He figured out just what was going through South's mind and played the eight of spades on that first spade lead. He echoed with the three on the sec- KORTH V 10874 4 K 4 3 + 1073 WEST A J 8 2 V 6 3 4 Q J 1 0 X + K J 9 3 SOUTH (D) + A1075 EAST 4963 V A 5 4 A 9 7 6 5 + Q 6 2 · 2 + A84 East-West vulnerable Wtst North East South 1¥ Pass 2 V Pass 4» Pass Pass Pass Opening lead-- t Q Build good will, not resentment ond and South fell for it. He played dummy's lasl spade, turned to West and remarked, "You gave yourself away when you echoed in spades." Then South played his 10 spot. "Maybe not," replied West, as he produced the jack! By ABIGAIL VAN BU8EN DEAR ABBY: I am very bitter toward the company for which my husband works and wonder if other wives feel this way. Right now I am home alone with my four children while my husband is in EUROPE! Before this trip, it was Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Mexico City, and Las Vegas. He's being wined and dined at "sales meetings." Why do companies have their meetings in such exotic, exciting places and ask the men to leave their wives at home? These same wives who try to be understanding about the long hours, hard work and other absences their husbands take away from their families? (Wives are not even welcome at their own expense!) 1 am pleased that my husband is doing so well financially, but what is the money if it ruins our marriage? Why don't companies let wives share in the "rewards," too? Please don't print my name or city for obvious reasons. LONESOME AND BLUE DEAR L O N E S O M E : Your letter makes a lot of sense and I shall print it with the hope that the shoe pinches a few executives who are guilty of such practices. I. too, would like to know how they justify building resentment instead of goodwill. DEAR ABBY: I am miserable a n d n e e d y o u r help. Three months ago 1 divorced my husband and now I find that I still love htm. Please, God, I hope it isn't too late. Our divorce solved nothing. It just doomed me to loneliness to say nothing of what it has done to our children's morale. Abby, I am willing to crawl and beg. Anything to have us remarried, but I don't know what approach to use with him. Please, please help me. FOOLISH IN NEBRASKA. DEAR FOOLISH: In your case, the best approach is the direct one. Tell your former husband what you have told me. Or better yet clip this and send it to him with an olive branch. You have nothing to lose but your loneliness.
