This North has just the hand for it. South should be able to make the three spade contract. He wins the club opening, cashes the ace and king of trumps, and leads a heart. Dummy's ten loses to East's king and East leads the jack of diamonds. South must go right up with the ace and lead another heart.

Our directions were to glue each tile to the ceiling and secure it there by wedging a pole between the ceiling and the floor. The pole is supposed to remain ia place for 24 hours. My.husband thought the method sounded both awkward and time- consuming. He solved the problem by inserting tiny, headless finishing nails into the holes, one in each of the four corners. When the nails were sunk slightly below the level of the holes, they did not show. The work was faster (holding each tile securely cntil the glue dried) and they also gave the tiles more support afterwards. --MRS. M.E.F. BOYS--There Is a hint you should surely nail away in the back of your minds. --POLLY * Â· Â· Â« DEAR POLLY: A friend insisted I write you about ny homemade wheelchair.
