When today's hand was played, the bidding and the opening lead were identical in both rooms, but the similarity ended at the second trick. In the first room East overtook the queen of spades with his king, continued with the ace of spades, NORTH 18 45432 VJ1098 • A9 4J109 WEST EAST *Q9 AAKJ76 *2 VQ75 487843 *QJ5 + 87642 #KQ SOTJTH (D) *108 VAK843 • K 10 2 #A53 N-S yut South West North East 1V Pass 2V 2 4k 3V Pass 4V Pass Pass Pass Opening lead—4> Q and then . led .the jack of spades, It was obvious, to South 'that West would not be able to follow suit. South therefore had to ruff high enough to shut West out. He could not tell that any trump in his hand would be big enough for the task, but he could afford to ruff with the eigh't of hearts. This naturally held the trick. It was now clear to declarer that :he queen of hearts was in 'the East band. He therefore led a diamond to -dummy's ace and returned the jack of hearts for a trump finessi The finesse succeeded, of coursi and declarer therefore lost n trump trick. He eventually lost club trick, but fulfilled his contract In 'the second round East over took the opening lead .with his kin of spades but then abandoned th suit. He realized what would hap pen if he continued 'the suit. Sout would undoubtedly ruff high ant then finesse through the queen o hearts. Instead of giving away th trump situation, East shifted a once to the queen of clubs. South won at once with the acu of clubs, fearing that Eas't had lee a singleton queen. He had no in formation about the location of thi queen of hearts and (perhaps un wisely) tried to drop it instead o. finessing. When the queen of hearts failed to drop under the ace or king, declarer was set. He wa_ bound to lose three 'tricks in the black suits and had managed to misguess the trumps. CARD SENSE Q—With bo'th sides vulnerable your partner deals and bids one no trump. The next player doubles You hold: Spades J-3, Hearts 10-4 2, Diamonds Q-9-7-4, Clubs K-8-5-2 What do you do? A — Pass (without lear). Your side should have more than hit] of the strength in. the deck, anc your partner should make one no trump if the double is passed. I the opponents bid, they may ge into trouble. TODAY'S QUESTION With both sides vulnearble your partner deals and bids one no- trump. The next player doubles You hold: Spades J-3, Hearts K-4 2, Diamonds Q-9-7-4, Clubs K-8-5-2 What do you do? Answer Tomorrow + THE DOCTOR SAYS:- There Are Accurate Ways To Diagnose Ear Trouble SEVERAL, good questions about Meniere's disease have been sent in by Mrs. W. Others, no doubt, are .nterested in the same things. 'How," she asks, "can a specialist tell that a person has Meniere's disease?" First there are the symptoms of dizzy spells, ringing in the ears, and slight loss of hearing. Then there' are a number of special tests including spinning in a •otating- chair and testing with tuning forks. . In fact the special methods and equipment available are .such that an accurate diagnosis can almost always be made. Another thing Mrs. W. asks is whether Meniere's-- disease is re- ated 'to a brain tumor. The answer to this is "usually not." Once in a while a brain tumor produces symptoms similar 'to those of Menere's disease but this is the cause only in a small proportion of those vho suffer with this condition. Then Mrs. W. inquires about reatment. The majority of cases are caused by the accumulation of luid in the inner portion of the iar (sometimes spoken of as drop- iy). If the amount of fluid can be essened the symptoms tend to improve. Hence one form of treatment has been aimed at cutting down th< fluid intake of the body or remov ing excess fluid. Other medica treatments are often- used involving the giving of certain drugs. "Is Meniere's disease fatal anc does an operation guarantee re suits?" are Mrs. W's final ques tions. No 'the disease is not fatal Rather it tends to run on for years with gradual improvement in some of the .unpleasant symptoms such a's dizziness and ringing in the ears. There is apt to be some increase in the loss of hearing. OPERATIONS TRIED As to operation guaranteeing results, this must be answered with a "no" also/ In fact it is impossible to guarantee results from any operation. . Although operation has sometimes been' used foe Meniere's disease, the results have been variable. Space prevents saying much more about this disease now, but ] should like to mention one thing more'. Because of the dizzy spells victims of Meniere's disease are particularly liable to falls in which they may injure themselves. This is something they—and their families and friends — should guard against. . s JACOBY ON CANASTA By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M. D. Written for NBA Service Use Strategy To Grab Pile When one of ytmr opponents melds early he depletes his hand. However, this play-makes it much asier for his side to take the dis- ard pile since they will need only a matching card and a wild card o take it, while your side will itill need a natural pair. Furthermore, you will not be able to dis- ard a card that matches that meld .vithout giving away the pile. You can neutralize this advan- age completely by the simple play >f freezing the pack: Furthermore, since your side will have more ards'in hand than the opponents rou will have a better chance to get the discard pile than th-ay will. If your side needs only 50 points he loss of this wild card won't landicap you much in getting the ile (although I have played en- ire hands without ever getting as much as a fifty count). The play's weakness of course is Hat it is not guaranteed or sny- hing like guaranteed. If you make his freeze and then your side oses the pile, as it well may, you ave lost a big pile together with our wild card plus any other wild ards you may have thrown, in ater. However, straight percent- ges say that this type of freeze will get you many more packs han it will cost you. The reader may now ask "Why sn't this always a wonderful play?" "^ answer is that good players repare a defense against .this lay. If I am playing against a player ho freezes automatically if I meld rom my hand, I just don't start y melding from iny hand unless I isualize some play for a quick out nd a very good play for out before ery long-. Then, if the opponents.freeze the ile my partner and I go about ur business of .playing for out. If e are lucky we go before the pponents have melded at all. Or laybe we will get the pile any- ay. Then we are ready for a eally big hand—particularly if our pponents have broken up their ands in trying to get the pile. Finally, if they, do get the pile we on,, .the hand, but we won't lose much. We will be out before they can score too much. Don't forget that it is possible to work traps against the player who is quick to freeze. If I am lucky enough to hold something like "joker-king-king-king-king when I need 50, I may meld only joker- king-king. If the freezer holds a King it is a cinch that he will first freeze the pack and next throw me the king. Know the important changesTn Canasta rules that have been made lately?
