The job then is to manipulate your cards In such a waj* that you can lead through the fealow who is marked ns holding most of the trumps. K Q 9 4 2 (Dealer: West. North-South vulnerable.) When West bid 4-Hearts to open this deal, North doubled. With most good players that double la optional, meaning to leave it in for penalties unless you have a spade holding, but not indicating preparedness for a bid as high as five-odd in minors. South read the double correctly and called 4- Spades, which East doubled. By using the information vouch- nfed to him by the pre-emptive bid and the ensuing business double in the East, South made an overtrick. He won the club lead in his own hand, led to the two high diamonds, discarding a heart, lay down the spade K to drop the singleton 10, finessed the spade S, then led the spade J to force East's ace. A heart was led to the K. and West returned another heart, which South ruffed with the 7. He entered dummy with the club 3, dropped East's last trump with the Q, then finished up with club tricks in the South. If West had lid his heart honors at the start, there would of course have been no overtricks, but the real culprit was East, who had the temerity to double when his partner liad shown defensive weakness with a pre-emptive bid.

Questioned further, he told Cormer S. A. Baltz that not he but Miss Slabel Harshman had been operating he car at the time of the crash and hat he assumed responsibility "to avc her.from embarrassment."

Mrs. Brandt denied knowledge of itatements made to Investigating Of- Icer K, H. Dclbrook at the hospital vhcre she had been rushed for emergency treatment for injuries to he head and other parts of the body. Fulton, however, admitted, under questioning, that he told the officer, at that time, that he had been operating the machine and had paid the reckless dri%-ing fine "because I ·Itdn't think anything was going to come out of it like this and I wanted save Miss Harshman some cm- sarmssmcnt." C. E. Reynolds, whose"wile was inured in the collision, made a state- nent for the record that he anct Mr. Lerew heard Trooper Delbrook ciuestioning Fulton at the hospital and heard the latter declare he had icon operating the machine when the crash occurred. "In the course of my work on the -ailroad," Mr. Reynolds said, "I have seen a lot of persons under the -influence o£ liquor and Fulton's condition was no different when I saw lim at the hospital at that time." The inquest was continued to March 10 to give the officer additional time to investigate the facts uncovered yesterday at the hearing. Girl Born to Grimms.
