Tips on Contract PSYCHIC DOUBLE FAILS By TOM ONE1L Some players with distributional but little high card strength are prone to double an opening bid for the purpose of misleading the partnership with · the better cards in the hope of preventing a game contract. Such a double is risky. It lays the doubler open to a double of himself or of his partner, who may be deceived. Also at times it will mark cards for the contracting side so that a contract succeeds which normally would fail. In illustration Is a hand which Mrs. Florence Osborn played at the Deschapelles club, New York: 4 J 8 5 2 + 0 - S O U T H + A 6 5 Z 410' 8 6 * » K J 7 2. » 3 + J 1 0 9 3 Mrs. Osborn, sitting North, opened the auction with one spade and East doubled. Lacking spades, East was prepared for any response West might make. Ie thought there were possibilities of scoring for his side If West should have strength and, at any rate, of hindering the opener. South redoubled, first because of his fit in spades. His singleton diamond and possibilities of the hearts and clubs; and second because he knew that East liked to make doubles without quick tricks. West bid one no trump, a bid which eventually proved the undoing of his partnership. Two diamonds was the real bid with his cards. The one no trump marked the spades. The singleton club mitigated against a good no trump contract. North passed in order to let South speak again as the redouble indicated willingness to do. East had to run to his diamonds. South then showed support for the opener's suit by bidding two spades. West assisted the diamonds to three, North said three spades East passed and South carried the spades to four, which West doubled. East- led the queen of hearts and the king was played from dummy. West refused to cover, hoping to block entrance to dummy. North played the 'eight-spot. From South the ten of spades was successfully finessed. A low club from South was followed by the queen West, king North and ace East. East led the ten of hearts, which was covered by the jack and ace. North played tho nine. West led a low spade, which. North had to take. North led a club which West Miffed. West then led a diamond only to find North with the ace. North put herself in dummy with a heart finessed against the king of spades, then dropped tho king will' the ace. The defending side mndo only one spade and the heart anc club aces.

Question-Asking May Become Nuisance When Child Develops Habit By BROOKE PETEIIS CHUKCII. Question-asking, like everything ilse, may become a bad habit, and eventually a nuisance. Everyone knows the adult whose conversation*:! stock in trade is questions, which he firea at you in rapid succession, often not waiting to hear the answers, or even giving time, for any, anil smugly gratified at his outgoing .interest in other people. It ia really only on expression of self-consciousness, and is often a residue of childhood, when the bc.t way to, get and hold the center of the stage was to ask conscientious parents questions which they felt they must answer. There are questions and questions, some deserving consideration, and some merely put by way of making conversation and dragging back wandering attention to oneself. The child may start seriously with the wide-eyed inquiry, "Where is heaven?" Religious curiosity is one of the most striking features of early inquiry. From the theological discussion which ensues almost anything may evolve. An excellent solution of the problem, if the child is able to read, is to send him to the encyclopedia or dic- tionary for every question that has an answer. The effort involved for the child will soon make him think twice before he asks useless questions. Another solution is to turn the tables and nsk in sill innocence, "What do you think is the answer?" There is no reason for parents who have finished their formal schooling to be reduced to brain fag by daily examination from their children unless the queries are of vital importance and need special attention and thought which they are host able to give.
