On Uriel?}** Wrong Time For Finesse By OSWALD JACOBY Written for NBA Service The land area of Alberta, Canadian province, is larger than that of Idaho, Oregon, and Washington, combined. Washington was admitted to th« Union in November, 1389, t t lo dummy. West would discard a spade 'his best defense) and declarer would continue by ruffing one of dummy's low clubs. West would be able lo take liis queen ot hearts whenever he liked, but he could not defeat the contract. . This line of play makes the slam If isn't easy to reach the slamjif the trumps break normally, evenj •in hearts with today's cards. Bothjthough the clubs break badly. .1: North and South must bid aggres-; has . lne additional advantage of . , , . ,. . . , , lolfenng excellent chances for the : Mvcly and delicately, and players: slam » ycn jf the trumps breaki who are good enough to bid sojk ac liy provided that East has thej astutely should also be good!long trumps, enough to play the hand to a successful conclusion.

Y.C.-BLENDED WHISKEY— 86.8 PROOF-65% GRAIN NEUTRAL SPIRITS When the hand was actually played, South proved that lie was ia better bidder than player. He ^ook the first trick in dummy with ,lhc ace of spades, led a trump to the ace. and got to dummy with the ace of diamonds in order to lead another t-'urnp. I When East followed with the ten of. hearts. South finessed the jack. This finesse was a grievous error. West won with the queen of hearts and led another, spade to make dummy ruff. Now dummy's last trump had 'to be used to draw West's outstanding trump. Dummy had no side entry to the clubs, and when, the club suit obstinately refused to break properly South was forced to concede defeat. After winning the first trick with the ace of spades, South should cash both of the top hearts without taking a finesse. Now South can go after the clubs and get to dummy as often as he likes even though the clubs break badly. In practice. South would cash the two top hearts, continue with the queen of clubs and lead a low club ^^ BACH ; S -' Cold h t Budget-Value TOPCOATS Man, it's cold and the reports tell us it's going to stay that way.
