By OSWALD JACOBY Written for NBA Service There is very little excuse for "getting to six spades in the hand shown today, and this over-ambitious contract should normally be defeated with ease. South should ae content with a contract of four spades since he has a somewhat stretched two-bid and his partner could not make a positive response. With' the opening lead of the jack of spades, South's problems are miraculously solved. South wins the first trick with Kit 1 ace of spades, cashes the ace ghd king of hearts, and ruffs a heart. Declarer gets back to dummy with the ten of spades, drawing the outstanding trumps. Now dummy's . 21 SHOPPING DAYS TILL CHRISTMAS! two good hearts.can be cashed, ami South gets rid of two losing cards. The slam is now home.

When this hand was actually played, in the summer of 1954 in a match between England and Italy, the bidding was even worse than the sequence that is shown K | in the diagram. The Italian play- Hi ers' were using a very artificial ~ system, and as the result of a misunderstanding North wound up as the declarer at six spades! i Some of 'the English spectators relaxed when this took place, since East could net make a fatal opening lead. It didn't matter what East chose-to open, the contract was practically certain to go down. The only really fatal opening lead was the jack of spades, and thatj card was in the West hand. What could be safer, from the'English! jSipoint of view? • , j L<5J Perhaps to prove 'that there is i 'gSno'such thing as safety, West un- ' jexpectedly led'out of turn." This was bad enough: but as you "probably guessed, West chose to lead the jack of spades. North, the declarer, had the right to accept this lead if he chose to do'so. After some thought, he.did decide to accept the lead and therefore made this "impossible"- slam. The three-span bridge will be 214 feet long and .have a 28-foot roadway. The contract calls for the work to be completed in 280 working days. Eastern' Shore, one from Southern! Maryland (but not Prince Georges (County), one from Western Mary- the access road is being shared by Allegany County, and *he Bureau of Public Roads, and the railroad is paying 10 per. cent of j the cost of the bridge. - - SEE LEE FIRST - WATCHES N.
