A. DENIAL OF STRENGTH FOLLOWING AK Informative or takeout double of your partner's opening suit bid, there is no need for you to bid if your hand is strong. Either redouble to tell your partner about your strength, or else pass and let the opponents bid themselves trouble. If they do not happen to bid something you can double, then you can coma in with your own bid. Your having passed in the first place tells your partner you WQCO pretty strong, and had no reason for sticking in a bid on your first turn to try to keep the opponents out of a winning contract. (Several years ago ho was appointed An .nformal reception and buffet to a professorship at Julliaid. be- supper ^tt the home of the bride- - coming ore of the youngest members groom's uncle and aunt, Mr. and ever on the teaching staff.

Unlike a number of musicians who believe trat active sports destroy the delicate coordinating muscles of the musician'; hands, Mr. Gorodmtzky is a star ternis player. The program to be given ol Scion Hill Collfge includes Minor," by Scarlatti, Minor," by Schumann, Variations and Fugue on a Theme of Handl by Brahms, and shorter works of Chopin, DeFallfl, Liszt and Lis/t- Busoni. The concert is open to the public. (Dealer: South. Neither side vulnerable.) This deal presented a ease In which the dealer soemod to forget the logic of doubles and ensuing calls. South bid 1-Dlamond, West doubled and North bid 1-Spade, not only to warn his partner ot hla general weakness but to prepare for a possible sacrifice against a threatening: heart g-ame. East passed this nni3 South raised to 2-Spadea. When West and North passed, East cut In Copy/l»ht 19*9, by Kin With 3-Hearts. West raised it a- 4-Hearts and South doubled. After the heart game wo» mada, plus an overtrick, South berated his partner for bidding on such' a weak hand, in the first piaee, 'and for leaving in the double in the second placo. North countered by saving that his bid had warned South that his hand was worthless defensively and that South should not have made a penalty double unless ha could defeat the contract suigle- har.ded. Such arguments will always como up, so long as some players consider that a bid in North's position must show at least about a defensive trick or perhaps a half a chance more, while others treat it as constituting: a definite denial of defensive strength coupled with a guarantee of fair length in the suit named.
