"Haven't you ever heard of safety- plays?" he roared. "You didn't need to make seven, but you were sure of your slam if you simply played your seven of trumps on East's six spot." "Put your sword back, Mordred," said Lancelot.

Mordred sitting North raised one spade to two and Dinadan burst into the convention just invented by Sir Easley ot the Blackwood and settled for six when Mordred could not produce a king. He won the first trick with dummy's ace of hearts and remarked. "Maybe we didn't bid enough." He then led dummy's deuce of spades and went up with his ace.

What do you do now? Answer Tomorrow ' Davies said O'Malley had wanted money to buy land from his general counsel, Ollie L. Evans Jr. He said Bronsteln paid $7,500 for the paintings with his personal check, which O'Malley endorsed and gave to Evans. He said Evans signed over the land near Monticello In, Jefferson County and gave' O'Malley back $1,500 change. The press aide said one of the paintings was an 18th Century oil on metal while the other two were 19th Century paintings on canvas. After learning o the $7,500 check, state Attorney T. Edward Austin, Jacksonville, named special prosecutor in the Leon County probe of O'Malley, subpoenaed records of Bronstein's hospital consulting firm, Nosyko International, from a Miami bank. Late Wednesday Austin also Issued a new subpoena for Evans, whom he has been attempting to serve with a subpoena for some time. The new subpoena ordered Evans to testify Tuesday. O'Malley was in California Wednesday and Evans was with him but expected to return today. Today the Jury planned to question two of O'Malley's former law partners, Riccardo G. Ciravalo and Bennett H. Feldman, both of Miami. The Bronsteln check was drawn July 18,1973. It has the word "painting" written on It. O'Malley endorsed it and Evans was the co-endorser. Davies said the paintings purchased by Bronsteln had nothing to do with a 1972 art show in Miami sponsored by Mrs. O'Malley. The grand jury has subpoenaed bank records of London artist Geoffrey Russell, whose paintings were shown. O'Malley has denied allegations that as state Insurance commis­ sioner he pressured insurance firms to buy Russell paintings. Austin also subpoenaed James H. Campbell and John T. Cline, both officials of O'Malley's insurance department, and Ralph G. Taylor, Gainesville, and Nelson F. Green Jr., Tampa. The jury met for two hours Wednesday and questioned Lex Hood, executive vice president of the State Bank of Jacksonville.
