BARCLAY ON BRIDGE B y S h e p a r d B a r c l a y "The Authority on Anthoritlcs" OBEY THAT SIGNAL ON PLENTY of hands, the entire foundation for tho defensive play U based on the size of the card played by third-hand on the opening lead. Seldom should ita message be violated. If U can bo read as the lowest held, the player la usually asking for a switch to another suit as soon as hia partner gets the lead. II it can bo read clearly as higher than his lowest, it generally aslu for a repeat of the same suit.

South opened the bidding here with 1-Club, considering that his great length justified a shading of his top-card strength. North answered with 1-Diamond, East injected 1-Spado, South bid 2-Clubs, West 2-Spades and North forced with 4-Diamonds, In view of his club fit. East bid 4-Spades, as an intended sacrifice, and South passed to see if his partner wanted to double it. When North Instead Copyright 1939. by Kin* showed a St at 5-Cluba, South got over-ambitious. He would have done well to pass the 5-Spades which East now essayed, to see if his partner wished to double, but Instead he ambitiously bid S-Cuibs. Perhaps that flamboyant call was justified by his confidence In the defenders' proclivity to mistakes. West led the spade 10, tnough the Q would have been the choioe of most sound players, but that was unimportant. The ace won tn dummy, a club was cashed and a diamond leeL West won, led another spade, and the contract was made, South'a hearts being parked on the dummy's diamonds. West should have read ma partner for six spades, with all that bidding, and for something on the side, which could be only in hearts. Had he also read a low-card signal from his partner, he would have switched and beaten the contract. · * * Tomorrow's Problem * Q 3 4 A K 5 4 V A 3 * K + K Q J9 6 3 (Dealer: South, East-West vulnerable.)
