The winners of the team championship won close to 700 points on a hand in which the strength was fairly evenly divided. NORTH (D) 28 * J 987 62 ¥103 4J103 *Q5 EAST 4AQ54 VQ2 .

West played low, and Slayman discarded a club from the dummy. East ruffed with the five of diamonds and cashed the ace of diamonds in the hope of reducing dummy's ruffing power. At this point East should, have led a low club since the discard from the dummy indicated that West held the king. West would have won with the king of clubs and would have returned a second trump. This line of play would :ave produced six defensiye tricks. East never dreamed that his partner had doubled with three worthless diamonds. He therefore ioldly : led the ace of spades after taking his ace of diamonds. Now Stayman ruffed with the queen' of diamonds, drew trumps ending in the dummy, and ran the rest of the spades to make his contract and an overtrick. Two diamonds doubled with an overtrick was worth - 280 points (counting 50 points for a part score). The total swing on the joard was therefore 400 at one table and 280 at the other table foi a total of 680 points. Q—The bidding has been: _ South West North East 1 Heart Pass 2 Hearts . Pass ?

Former Cumberland GirlOnPlaneWhieh FOlsWilhSnwke A former Cumberland girl had I an exciting experience while on a flight from Madrid to New York during a recent trip tu Europe. She is Miss Gene H. Miller, executive secretary to Rep. Richard E. Lankford (D.-Md.) Miss Miller' relates, "The trip seemed • jinxed from the very beginning. "My flight was scheduled to leave New York at noon," she relates, "and finally after three attempts to start, we left the ground at 11 p. m. They.even sent us to a hotel in New York and then called for our immediate return to the airport, saying our plane was ready. "But the most exciting incident occurred on the return trip to the United States. About two hours out of Madrid, the heating system of our plane caught fire and the cabin • suddenly filled with big clouds of heavy white smoke. "The crew dashed back and forth trying to shut off the heating outlets and extinguish the fire.' For awhile the passengers did not know what was happening. "We were flying at 18,000 feet when the plane- suddenly dropped sharply to 5,000 feet..I could see some islandi' just below'and it is my understanding the 'crew was ireparing to ditch the'plane near hem. .. • • : ; •'.!
