Although 'North's hand is r ery weak, he does not want (o sec :he opponents get into n spade declaration and takes a bold chance- not being vulnerable—and raises tho contract to three hearts. East passed ' and South went to four hearts which West doubled. This closed Ihe contracllng. The riny West opened the ace ol clubs and follov;ed with tlie queen, dummy winning wilii the king. Declarer has not lost ouo club trick and sees that he raus lose at least a hearl .and a diamond. If he can ruET on all the spades, there Is a possibility of his making his contract, there- lore before leading a trump Hit queen o Jspadcs is led from diumnj and won by Ihc declarer with Hie ace. A small spade Is returned and trumped In the dummy with Ihc deuce of hearts. Now Hie nine of clubs Irom dummy and ruffed by declarer with Ihc four ol hearts The six of spades from Ihc declarer's hand Is trumped in the dum my with the seven ot hearts.

The Jack of hearts will b •elurncd from dummy, which Wcs will win with the ace. Now all tha iVcsl can do Is lo cash Ills king o diamonds. But remember that West ha doubled this contract and must on the aleit to every possible .clianc of defealing the declarer. There fore, when the declarer plays th ace of diamonds, West should real Izc llial declarer does not hold th (Hicun—otherwise he would lake th finesse—and West should tleliber alely throw his king of diamond on the declarer's ace, 'thereby pro vidins himself with an exit card— the seven of diamonds. Declarer will now lead Ihc eighl of spades aiul trump In the dummy with tlie eight of hearts, return the jack of hearts, which West will win with tlie ace. West will now exil with the seven of diamonds which his partner will win with the jack, East will then lead the queen of diamonds and II South, the dealer, trumps with the nine of hearts, West will overtrump with the 10— if South were lo trump with the qecn of hearts, West will discard his jack of clubs and is bound to make his 10 of hearts as lie holds' the 10 and three, while declarer Is left with the king and nine. This is truly a line play, one of the most interesting plays In biidgc, and should be watched for very carefully. Bits of News Mostly Personal S. N.
