Pass 2 # Pass Pass Pass Opening lead— # 9 clubs was the Stayman Convention, asking the opening bidder to show a biddable major if he had one. , "Is that Stayman?" asked West. "Yep," said Pete. "Normal no- trumps?" continued - West. "Uh- huh," nodded Pete. Meanwhile Fry tried not to break out in. a cold sweat. Leventritt had no way of knowing that the opening bid was a psychic, so his answers to West's questions were perfectly unsuspecting and honest. Eventually West parsed, and Fry passed with a dead pan. East now realized that there was a strong smell ol herring in the air, but he couldn't: think of any safe action to take. So he passed also, and Leventritt found himself, playing the hand with two little trumps in his own hand and seven solid trumps in the dummy. The defenders could have taken four tricks in the' : red suits if they had been quick about it, but they got off . to a poor start with a trump lead. This gave Leventritt a- chance to draw two rounds of trumps and take the spade finesse. When this finesse held, Leventritt won 10 tricks, for a top score. ' I, sometimes' wonder i whether, the boys teach all these fancy tricks to their pupils. CARD- SENSE . Q—With both, sides vulnerable your partner deals and bids one no-trump. The next player doubles. You hold: Spades J-3, Hearts 9-7-5, Diamonds A-Q-J-9-6-4-2, Club 8. What do you do? A—Redouble. If your partner stays in no-trump, your diamonds should guarantee the contract. If ,the opponents run to spades or clubs you will probably have to go on in no-trump (or possibly diamonds). TODAY'S QUESTION With both sides vulnerable your partner deals and bids one no- trump.

ON CANASTA By JSDWEV-P. JORDAN, St D. Written for NEA Service How To Dominate Discard ONCE' your, side gets control of he .discard pile your primary ob- ective" is••' jtb. retain this control hroughout a long and pleasant land.; The opponents will try to J this control-, and they have three nipthods at their disposal. ' The method , is to meld out and sSnd> you?•. • picnic.x You cannot weyent this, but you don't have .o help them. The way most people help h them- is, by* taking too i;,discard .piles once they iave;es£abiisjied-controi. This gives the opponents more draws from the stock'and more "chance to improve ihelr'- handsi'; Remember that as long as ; th« v dlscara pile is not going to get away from .you there is rib hurry about taking^ it. The second "way they have to Dfeak your control is to freeze the pile. If you-rush to meld everything possible, -'. your side will be down to a few cards and the opponents will be able to freeze the pile. Thereupon you will not take the discard pile any more that hand. When you have control of the discard pile you should hold up your meldable cards until the opponents are about to go out. Once they appear to be .close to out you should get your melds dowon. The pacty'is over and you want to score what you can. The third defense is for one of the opponents to grab the discard pile. If you and your partner play carefully there is very little chance of this happening. When it does, they have disrupted your squeeze. Q—What is meant by melds "of the same rank" in the official laws? I am told that you cannot make separate melds in the same rank, but .this is not clear to me. A*-Cards of the same rank are those that bear the same number or the same picture. For example, al king-s are of the same rank, or all nines, and so on. A seven and a six are of two different ranks. The meaning of the law is that you cannot have two separate melds of kings (for example). If you ac cidentally put down a meld of three kings when you already have a meld of kings : on the tqble, you must add the two. melds together and make them a combined meld. Are you sure on the latest meld rules? It's easy to look them up and' be certain when you have a copy of Jacoby's 1951 INTERNATIONAL LAWS OF CANASTA.

' We Have Your T.Y.SET —See Us— The Music Shop — everything musical — |S8 CHURCH ST. PHONJt OKI + THE DOCTOR ANSWERS By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M. D. Written for NEA Service Some Symptoms Are Purely Imaginary— Not Easy For The Doctor To Deal With . It is sometimes difficult to tell whether a complaint is real or imaginary. The first two questions today fall in that group. Q—For the past three months I v$ practically ceased sleeping. When I retire I close my eyes and as far as I know I do not sleep at all. The next morning I feel, fairly rested. What do you advise? Jack. A—There are many people who are wakeful a good part of the night and yet who actually sleep more than they think they do. The" fact that you feel rested in the morning suggests that this may be true in this case. If you could arrange it, you might have another man watch you during the night to see if you do not sleep. Anyway, if you feel rested in the morning the apparent lack ol sleep is: apparently doing no serious harm. Q—Name a few things which could be wrong with a person who stings air over'.when walking or doing anything. A. D. A—In the absence of any break- big out on the skin or other obvious cause this is certainly a puzzler. It suggests a mental difficulty more than a physical one. Q—Is auricular fibrillation serious? My friend who has it weighs over 200 pounds. Would reducing the weight help? J.E.L. A—Auricular fibrillation is a condition in which the heart beats irregularly. It/ must be classified as serious, though when properly tested it often, goes on for years and years without causing heart failure. . . Too much fat obviously gives the heart more work to do than necessary so it is usually desirable to maintain a normal weight. Any reduction in the presence of heart disease, however, .should be carried out under the doctor's direction. Q—The same parents have three children two of whom have high I.Q. tests. The third has an I.Q. of 65. What could cause the difference? Is there anything that could be done to better the condition? A.P. ; A—No one knows why differences of this sort should occur. There are usually differences between the intelligence of different children within the same family but seldom as much as this. It must probably be considered an accident. Unfortunately there is nothing to do which would- raise the I.Q. of this subnormal child: Some experiments with glutamic acid for, this purpose are going on but it Is too soon to .know just what this will accomplish. '.. Q—We have a. 15-year-old girl who has had brief spells of loss of memory since she was two years old. These leave her pale and weak. She has not outgrown them as we hoped. Could this be a. form of epilepsy? C.R. A—It is possible that these attacks are a form, of epilepsy of a mild type known as petit mat. If this is the case the outlook Is pretty good, especially with the im-< proved drugs which are now available. It would be desirable to make sure, however, and this could almost be done with the aid of this cncephalograph. This instrument measures the electrical waves in the brain.
