You ex- Iricks and five clubs no matter what else happens. Therefore you lake Ihe ten of spades, followed by three more top spades, thus drawing all of Wesl's trumps. This leaves you with one Irump still in your hand. Now 'you run Ihe rest ot the clubs, discarding two diamonds from your hand. This permits you to avoid the loss of a diamond Tick. You now knock out the ace of hearts and claim 12 tricks. The principle of this very simple hand is that you draw trumps to safeguard your long side suit.

Such things are routine In the British armed services. And lhat is why 70 British airmen, stationed at a Royal Air Force base in Buckinghamshire, have complained to their Member of Parliament. They mean .to put an end to abuses of the Brilish "batmen" system. In Britain a "batman" is not a horror comic character, but a British officer's personal servant or orderly, and he is expected to do just about everything from polishing the officer's shoes to airing his dog. Take the powdered wig episode. The complaining airmen say they were jobbed into serving as flunkeys at an RAF officers' ball by the "you, you and you" method, when no volunteers stepped forward from the ranks. Arriving at the ball, they were ordered lo put on silver wigs, lace dickeys, green velvet frock coats, silk knee breeches, white silk stockings and buckled shoes. Until.5 a. m., they served cocktails on silver trays to.officers and their wives, being paid the equivalent of S1.50 for this eight-hour shift. They also had to endure the taunts of the officers' ladies, who stroked their white wigs and leased them with, ".May I have this dance, flunkey?" "We looked and felt just plain silly," says Aircraftman Brian Holland, 22, who has just been demobilized from the .service. • Explains red-faced Air Commodore C. L. Dann: "The ball was a Regency affair. The decorations, even the musical numbers, were of the period—and, of 'course, so were the flunkeys. They didn't look unhappy to me. In fact, .they seemed to he having a good time." Commodore Dann admits that British servicemen were required to dress as cowboys 'while serving as waiters at another officers' ball lield recently at Little Rissington, Gloucestershire. Fancy dress, however, is the least of the batman's- worries. There is Hie "old man's" wife, for example. Officers' wives can make Ihe life of a balman just plain hell.' When the batman isn't bathing and dressing the officers' children, he's leading them by the hand to school—or ironing a frock for the officer's missus. Says a petty-officer steward in Plymouth: "I've waited up till the early hours for teen-age daughters to come home from dances. I've served officers' wives and children Iheir tea in bed, and I've done housework. "You don't have to," he adds, "but it can be pretty bad for you if you refuse." In two years' service with the Royal Air Force, Aircraftman Holland claims lhat he spent exactly nine weeks In training. The remaining 22 months he acted as "Mrs. Mops" for various officers' families. Some officers' wives post "orders of the day'" for British servicemen to carry oul. Here is a typical day's chores listed for Aircraftman Arthur Harrison lo fulfill t 1. FILL up boiler. When temperature is 160 degrees close it up (closed at bottom, damper down). 2. FILL up coal-burning stove, remove ash. Wipe the stove with damp cloth, top and front. 3. EMPTY rubbish bucket. 4. SWEEP kitchen, pantry,'scullery. 5.
