Slalc Tobacco Levy Opposed HAGICKSTOWN Ml — Gov. Me- Kcldin indicated before a Lions Club luncheon yesterday that he was opposed lo imposing a Slate tax on tobacco as a way of raising funds lo balance Ihe budget. ". . . there is a strong bloc in the Legislature which . . . remains unalterably opposed to the impo sition of such a tax. Can such a levy be enacted in view of this opposition?" he asked. He added that it must be remembered that "one of the big tobacco companies might someday consider locating one of its plants in our tobacco region." Jacoby Off iiriilyv Diamonds In This Play By OSWALD JACOBY Written for NBA Service South considered an opening bic of two diamonds in today's hand but decided against it since both of his suits were minors. He didn'1 want to push the bidding to the 11- trick level unless his partner could respond without being forced. Assessments Protested By La Vale Residents A protest against the higher assessments placed on property in Election District 29 in LaVale was made yesterday by nine property owners before the Allegany County Board of Commissioners.

South West North East 1 • IV 2 » Pass 6 * Pass Pass Pass Opening lead—V K When North was able to muster up a free response. South changed bis attitude toward the hand. There would probably be a reasonable play for slam if North had practically nothing but strong diamond support. West opened the king of hearts, and dummy naturally won the first trick with the ace. Declarer quite properly led a low trump from dummy at the second trick and successfully finessed the jack. Incidentally, it's worth noticing that' it would have been a mistake to lead the queen of diamonds from the dummy for the finesse. This play would not help if East had three diamonds, since East would then cover with his king to make sure of a trump trick. The lead of the queen would be unnecessary if East had only two diamonds headed by the king. To lead the queen would be fatal if East had the singleton king, since singleton king in the East hand can be won with the ace, after which the jack and queen will draw the rest of the trumps without loss. All of this was quite academic, of course, since East actually had natural trump trick. South successfully finessed the jack of diamonds at the second trick and then hopefully led r the ace of diamonds. West discarded a heart, and it was clear that East was sound to win a trick* later on with lis .king of diamonds. Now South had to avoid the loss of a spade trick. The best chance was to catch East with a doubleton spade. With this object in mind, declarer cashed the ace and king of spades and then began to run his good clubs. East discarded a heart Dn the fourth round of clubs, but South then led a third trump, forcing East to win with his king. At this point. East had nothing left but hearts. When he led a heart, South discarded the seven of spades from his hand while trumping in the dummy. This forc- ed ruff and discard play gave de clarer his slam contract.
