He was sitting South and explained the bidding sequence as follows: "My partner and I were playing a system in which a two over one response in a new suit is forcing to game. I didn't want to inhibit a diamond lead and I didn't like a raise to three clubs so I decided to temporize with two hearts. I knew ihe situation was out of hand when my partner jumped to a heart game. I couldn't think of anything bright to do so I decided to gamble on a slam in notrump.' 1 You may now indulge in a few snickers over the strange bidding but South more than redeemed himself by giving the play a masterful touch. West led the club eight .and when the dummy was tabled South could count exactly 10 sure tricks. He cashed two more clubs, noting West's discard at trick three. Next came dummy's two high spades. West showing out on the second round. Since West had obviously started with 10 red cards South saw some hope for the hand. The possibility of a squeeze or end- play seemed to provide the best chance so declarer proceeded to cash his nine black suit winners. West difficulty in choosing discards told South he was on the right tract. This was the end position: North g H K J 8 D 5 At trick 10 a low heart was led and West was in the soup. He won the ace an had a choice of returning the heart queen into dummy's K-J or shifting to a diamond away from the king. He naturally chose a diamond and South's A-Q-8 took the last three tricks.

Foy .· It is a pity that international competitive gatherings, such as the 1976 Summer ·Olympics in Canada, cannot be free from political and racial conflicts. The annual chess team matches are caught up in a senseless hassle, too. The FIDE-sanctioned 1976 Chess Olympiad was awarded to Israel and will be held there, in Haifa, 'Oct. 24 through Nov. 11. · But Libya is holding the first "Against ·Israel Chess Olympics" in Tripoli, organized by the ad hoc Arab Libyan Chess Fed- -eration. also scheduled Oct. 24 through .Nov. 11. Apparently the members of the ;Arab Chess Federation will go to Tripoli ·but most of the Western countries (in- icluding the USA) will attend the official 'FIDE team tournament in Haifi. Russia ·will not go to Israel, but probably will not .'go to Tripoli either, and they can be ex- ·pected to keep the other Eastern European countries away from Israel, too. * * » : THE ELK RIVER Chess Club started a new tournament last week with 13 or 14 players in two divisions.

Chinese Celebrate Mao Tse-Tung's Historic Swim TOKYO (AP) -- Almost every able person is swimming in China's rivers, lakes and coastal waters this summer to mark the lOtttwnniversaryyof Chairman Mao Tse-tung's historic swim in the Yangtze river, the official Hsinhua news agency said Saturday. Mao swam 15 kilometers (almost 9 miles) in one hour and five minutes on July 16, 1966, at the advanced age of 73, Hsinhua said, riding the "winds and waves of the turbulent Yangtze." The broadcast monitored in Tokyo said in Kwangtung Province, South China, "nearly 14 million people or 26 per cent of the province's population, are swimming in the big rivers and the sea." It said some 100,000 people are swimming every day in the Red Flag Canal in Linhsien County, at the eastern foot of the Taihang Mountains in Honan Province." In Tsingtao, an important port city by the Yellow Sea, Hsinhua said, "over two million people go swimming every year." It said that many of the workers can now swim up to 5,000 to 6,000 meters in the sea. CHARLESTON OPEN MONO AY AND FRIDAY'Til 9:00 P.M.
