Then he entered dummv with a second trump, led the queen of clubs and discarded the three of diamonds. West was in and had no way to collect more than one further trick. A diamond lead would make Pete's king good. Any other lead would allow him to ruff in dummy and discard one diamond. Pessimism had paid off. Any other line of play would have lost the hand. A Kansas reader wants to know what the "Notrump forcing" convention is. It is very popular with experts who never open four- card majors. It provides that the one-notrump response to a major opening is a one-round force. It has lots of merit, but also is very complicated.

Ur. Ghislaine Godenne, director- of counseling and psychiatric! services at 'Johns Hopkins University, recently experienced one of the busic.s't times of her year — the first cases of homesickness. Cases crop up during the first week of school and the final weeks of the first semester when students are faced with final exams. Ms. Godcnnesaid. "Homesickness is generally the one situation which surprises freshmen." she said. "They're so pleased to get away from home — but they become quite surprised when they find they are lonely. The most acute time is the first week." Ms. Gndcnnc. who has published an article in which •she'outlines the. hazards that cause anxiety and depression among freshmen, says college, life is not hazardous to a young person's life. Bui she quickly adds that her statement is made with some reservations. Students who have grown up in a good family environmenl rarely suffer from homesickness. Ms. Godenne explained. She said usually it hits students who have had' an insecure family life. "Students never really get homesick if they had a' good relationship with their parents, If you love your-family - it might IK; sad — but there won't be any anxiety. "But unconsciously,-a person who feels he isn't loved or feels he doesn't really love his parents — he'll get homesick." Ms. Godenne said. Her prescription for curing homesickness is.no! to allow the student to return home within the first week. "The anxiety might be so great, he might not want to come back to college," she said. "We tell them it's okay if they want to go home, but not before one week. I've never had a student go back home after he's decided to stay." Toward the end of the first semester, homesickness strikes again because the .student is "getting tired, has to study and the excitement of college is over, ".she said. Financial sacrifices placed on a family who sends a child to -college also can cause anxiety. Ms. Godenne said parents should not hide their financial problen s from their child, but at the same time they should not "rub it in" that they are doing without certain things for the sake of the child's education. "College is pretty expensive these days and some parents really do mortgage their homes. Some students will -Ms. Godenne said the Johns population each year, which she begin to feel guilty if they don't .Hopkinscounselors see about 11 admitted is a very high pcr- dowell."shesaid ' per cent of the student centage.
