Sheinwoid on Bridge Keep in shape to avoid asp TUCS., March 2,1976 GREELEY (Colo.) TRIBUNE II ByALrREDSIIEINWOLD History might have been changed if Cleopatra's noee had been one inch longer, and there can be too much of a good thing at the bridge table too. A simple operation would have kept South's cards in shape in today's hand. South dealer Neither side vulnerable NORTH * K 6 2 ?87 O K 1 0 5 3 » K 6 4 2 WEST EAST + 9 8 7 3 + 1 0 5 ?5 ?Q632 O A 9 7 6 4 O Q J 8 2 + Q J 1 0 + A 9 8 SOUTH + A Q J 4 £ A K J 1 0 9 4 O N o n e t 7 5 3 South Weit North East 1 y Pass 1 NT Pass 3 ? Pass 4 S All Pass Opening lead - + Q The defenders look three club tricks, and East then returned a diamond. South ruffed with the four of hearts, a play that left him with too many high trumps -- too much of a good thing. Since the king of spades was the only entry to dummy, South could take only one finesse through East's queen of hearts. East eventually won a trump trick, defeating the contract. South should ruff the diamond with the nine of trumps instead of the four. Then he leads a spade to dummy's king and lets the eight of hearts ride for a finesse. In Dummy The finesse succeeds, and the lead stays in dummy ·-- because South can play the four of hearts under dummy's eight. Declarer can thus continue with dummy's other heart to repeat the finesse. South picks up East's trumps without loss and scores game. Incidentally, don't try the false safety play of leading out the ace of hearts before taking a trump finesse. This play works if West had the singleton queen of hearts, but loses If West has the singleton 6, 5, 3 or 2. The odds are thus 4 to 1 in favor of taking two trump finesses instead of playing the ace first and then taking just one finesse. Daily Question Partner opens with one spade, and the next player passes. You hold: Spade K62 heart 87 diamond K10S3 club K642. What do you say? Answer: Bid two spades. This is slightly more encouraging than a response of one notrump. You can afford to offer encouragement since you have 9 points in high cards, good trump support and a side doubleton. c) 19J6 Los Angeles Times Hints from Heloise Order of Foresters presents awards at installation dance Uy HKLOISE CRUSE Ail forrespimdence pertaining to Ihc Hclmsi 1 column should be mailed directly Hclnise.

Ni-j S»nd DEAR READERS: Yesterday, my column Included the fit-fit half ol the results of my reader survey on what women first notice about men. ("Physique" won first piece, capturing 58 per cent of the vote, with "grooming"--including attire--n close second and eyes third. Here are the rest of the results: After eyes came the "smile," including the teeth. Women in every state and Canada expressed more interest in the "smile" than the responding men did. Next the voice. Those who said they first notice a man's voice remarked that they find a deep, resonant voice most appealing. About une per cent said they first notice "tell-tale jewelry," such as a wedding ring, a friendship ring, a necklace, bracelet, as a "sign" that he is "taken." (An Arkansas women wrote, "A man who would allow a possessive women to hong such obvious 'keep-off signs on him is weak and immature. She can have him!" A Tucson woman expressed it typically: "First, I notice how he's built, then the expression in his eyes, then whether he's well-groomed or not, but the most fignificnnt part of a man is his reaction to ME! If he shows an interest in me, I want to know him better. "His line of conversation soon tells me all \ need to know. Does he talk about himself, or does he ask me questions about myself? Egotistical men talk about themselves. Generous men ask questions. If he talks about others, is he kind"? Does he gossip? "Does he ever say, 'I don't know' ? (I like a man who is quick to admit that he doesn't have oil the answers.) Is he profane? Is he intelligent? Is he bigoted? IB he informed? After 10 minutes, I know whether I like him or not." Most women who wrote that what they first notice about a man is his packaging assured me that it is what's on the inside that counts. Letter after letter emphasized that what usually attracts a woman lo a man is not necessarily what holds her interest. (i Women placed much more importance on "behavior than the men did in their survey. A Washington Star reader put it eloquently: "The first thing I notice about a man is his attitude toward others. A man who respects himself will show respect for others. A gentle man will listen. An unselfish man will not interrupt. A considerate man will defer. A spiritual man will not use the name of the Lord in vain. A clean-minded man will not offend others by vulgar language, "When I look at a man, I don't look at his 'build,' his clothing, his shoes or even his face to see if he is handsome physically; I look at his 'soul' by listening to him. And if he is spiritual, considerate, unselfish, clean and respectable, he is B beautiful man. Worth knowing better. And perhaps worth loving."

Mrs. Ben Steward Letter of Thought Dear Heloise; Your next door neighbor is always a good neighbor as long as they let you alone... __ H.H.H. Dear Heloise: t stepped on some gooey gum when I was barefoot and if you ever tried to remove gum from anything with your fingers, you know it is almost impossible without making a big mess. Well, I tried the pre-wash spray stain-remover on my foot and (hat stuff is good! It hardened that gum and all I did was rub a little with my finger and it all came off clean as a whistle. Then a few days later my small grandbaby dropped some chewed-up gum on one of my throw rugs, so again I used the stain remover and, sure enough, it did the same to the gum in the rug. Just had to rub it out with little or no effort. This stuff is getting to be almost as good as your nylon net! Mrs. M. Hickey Dear Heloise: I was reading in your column Dear Heloise: If you have a paring knife with a wood handle, paint the Heloise wood w i t h nail P° lish ' The nail polish will protect the wood and keep it from rotting.
