Soulh's discard on this last diamond lead may well be the four of hearts, while West can safely discard a small club. Dunircy returns a heart and West finesses the 513 eon. West has now won six tricks, and has only two inore in sight, as North will run his spades as soon as declarer loses the lead. So, Inasmuch as West cannot possibly lose his two aces, he leads the spade himself, hoping that North has four good ones (Norlh cannot hold more than four because his original lead of the five showed either four or five). Now If North wins with his good spades, South is squeezed, and by following South's discards declarer must win an extra trick in either hearts or clubs. Of course, the squeeze is prevented if North refrains from leading his last spade, In other words refuses to apply the squeeze to his partner. This, however, would be a double dummy play, and quite Improbable. 'Hie hand illustrates the thrill that conies to the expert bridge player on very Infrequent occasions, namely inviting his adversary to do what he would like to do bat cannot do, namely, applying the squeeze to his partner and thus j making an added trick for declarer.

A group of towns, pooling their electric power requirements—and recciv- service from a widespread elecii-K irausmission system—can make more effective use of the facilities serving them than they could if each town were served by a separate email plant!: !)_•; . ..„ And, in addition, their combined demand results in more efficient and economical production of electricity. That is why, as soon ta it became technically feasible,local plants jvere abandoned in favor of transmission systems serving many towns in a wide area. The improved power supply which lias resulted is among the principal reasons for the small community's new industrial importance.
