Even the experts are reduced to guessing the correct bid, as evidenced in today's deal from a Swiss Team Game. · At table one East opened with a club and South made a takeout double. Over North's .one diamond bid South elected to jump to two hearts. North bid two notrump, South showed his spade suit and North bid three notrump (not recommended with such : an obvious misfit). South bid four hearts, North re\ turned to spades and the I bidding died. West led the club nine, dummy played low and declarer ruffed East's 10. A low heart was trumped on the board and a low diamond ruffed in the closed hand. South now played the A-K and .another spade. East won the queen and returned a diamond. Declarer discarded a heart and dummy's ace won. With no way off the board South had to use his last trump to reach his hand. The ace of hearts was his eighth and last trick for down two. At table two North-South were playing Michaels in which an overcall in an opponents minor suit promises^at least five cards in each major. South thought the partnership was playing the bid forcing. North had other ideas and passed two -.clubs in ah effort to keep out of trouble. 1- West led the club nine, East won the 10 ^"and led a diamond to dummy's ace. A -;spade finesse supplied three spade tricks. ^·Theace of hearts was followed by a heart °ruff on the table and the king of clubs eventually provided a trick for down one. North-South weren't too unhappy with the results until they realized that they could make four hearts via the safety play of the ace and a low heart, losing two hearts and one spade. Also four spades would make from the North hand because clubs could not be attacked in time to shorten trumps before the heart suit was established.

We cannot catch up ;.on everything, but we are not going to pass '·"by Dr. Max Euwe's 75th birthday. L" Machgielis Euwe was born in-Water ^ graafsmer, The Netherlands, May 20, ^ 1901. By 1920 he was already one of the I leading Dutch chess players, but his tal- « ents in the Royal Game developed without ; any detriment to his studies and he always -'remained a pure amateur. He gained his "/doctorate in 1926. When Euwe won the ~ world championship from Alexander Alek- · nine in 1935--to the amazement of the -.chess world--he was also a full-time ^teacher of mathematics, mechanics and -- astronomy in a lyceum. '~' ; The record of previous world champions ~ (including Alekhine) had not shown their - overwhelming desire to meet their most 1 dangerous rivals in title competition but 1 Euwe gave Alekhine a return match only - two years later--and lost the world cham- - pionship. During World War II, Dr. Euwe *. refused to compete in any tournaments in *· occupied Europe, thus denying the Nazis ·--the use of his name for propoganda pur- ·I: poses. :-. ' * * * p HOWEVER, Euwe used his post as di- ··'· rector of a chain of food stores for the !"-! highly dangerous additional purpose of -;. getting food to Dutch cities and the under;- ground movement. Following the end of '"·· the war (and Alekhine's death) Euwe was ':. one of seven grandmasters who competed - in the great tournament for the world Z. chess championship which was won by ~ Mikhail Botvinnik. M. Foy As he grew older. Max Euwe's appearances in chess tournaments became less and less frequent. Now, he no longer competes in tournaments, but his continued contributions to chess, beside his very fine chess books, include his presidency of the FIDE (the international chess governing body), an office which he has filled with , great distinction. Ten West Virginians competed in the 44-player "Roanoke ?500 Open #1" last month (June-26-27). Master Charles Powell, who played on the Washington team in the National Chess League, and Expert Rusty Potter tied for first place with 4Vi- '/2 scores. The Mountaineers scored as follows: Paul Harless (4-1 and tied for top "A" and 3rd place), Bernard Kiernan and Karl Kiser (3'/2-lVz), Gary Cummings. James McAlister and Jerry Lawson (3-2; Lawson tied for top "C"), Brett Thompson (2 1 /2-2'/2), Tom Slamecka and Jerry Evans (2-3), and Dale Ward (1-4): W.Va. high school champion Harless lost only to Potter.
