ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "I'm a female Capricorn born on Jan. 1,1965, and I've written several times asking if or when I'll be married, but you never respond. Why?" I'm sorry for my delayed response, dear Capricorn. The best way to send a question is by e-mail through Creators Syndicate Inc. ( I read every letter, and though I may not select your letter for the column, I do incorporate the answers to my readers' questions when writing the daily forecast. As for your love life, you aren't meeting any new people now. Money, time and your obligations have kept you from attending social events. You are so picky. Your chart says that your whole social life has been neglected. You've never completely conquered the tools of party- going, such as making small talk. This may be the reason why you haven't been exposed to a wider range of dating prospects. Capricorns find the most enduring love partners while they cavort about town participating in leisurely pursuits. Over the past three years, you've been too worried about being alone to let your personal glow radiate to the opposite sex. From now until Aug. 16, try not to meet any new dating partners. Make a few good friends, and your whole outlook will change. Good luck! CELEBRITY PROFILES: Gemini trailblazer Lauryn Hill broke into the music industry with the kind of buzz a Gemini can stir up with one hand tied behind his or her back. This multi-Grammy winner may seem indifferent about her competition, but in truth, Gemini is a natural competitor. September will be a lucky month for Hill. She may hit the top of the charts again.

Would you rather play or defend four spades after the lead of the queen of clubs'? With two four-card minor suits, most players follow North's example by opening one diamond. Despite East's featherweight overcall, the rest of the auction is routine, and four spades is the normal contract. Suppose you elect to play. You cover the queen of clubs with the king and East wins with the ace and shios to a trump. Whether you play high or low, West wins two trump tricks to complete the defensive book and exits with the remaining spade. You can discard one heart on the jack of clubs, but arc stuck with a heart loser — down one. However, do not be in a hurry to elect to defend. The contract can be made with a slightly different play at trick one. Duck the queen of clubs in dummy! East cannot afford to rise with the ace and shift to trumps because that sets up two club winners in dummy, permitting you to discard both heart losers. Best defense is for West to persevere with a club, dummy's jack forcing East's ace as you ruff. One heart discard is not enough, but the high trumps on the table are all that you now need to get home. Cash the ace and king of hearts and ruff a heart. (Even if East can over- ruff, the contract is safe — try it.) Play off the ace and king of diamonds and ruff a diamond with the five, then ruff your remaining heart on the table. Now lead the jack of spades and, no matter how West defends, you lose only two trumps and a club. Well done. 100 YEARS AGO Saturday ended the fifth week of the anthracite coal miners strike. Neither side has weakened an inch and each side stands just as firmly as it did thirty-five days ago. As the days go by it becomes more apparent that it is a case of the "survival of the fittest." Neither the miner nor the operator have anything further to propose. If a solution is to come it will have to come from a third party.
