NORTH 4AKJ7432 47* \VEST 4Q96 *96 495 + J85432 EAST 410 *8532 4Q8632 <+Q107 SOUTH 485 Paas 4 A K J 10 4iAK6 The bidding: North East Sonth Wegfc 1 4 Pass 8 V S 4 Pass 4 4 4 V Pass 7 NT Opening lead— four of clubs. I played in the Masters Pairs in 1941 and held the North hand. The bidding at my table went as shown. Certainly my partner could not be crilicized for atlempting a grand slam, considering the huge hand he held and the fad that I had opened the bidding. Sad to relate, lie .went down one when he elected to cash the A-K of spades instead of at- -tempUng the finesse. However, lie had lots of company on the hand, about half the field playing for the drop while the other half chose to finesse the jack. Many other contracts were also reached, including six no- trump, seven hearts and seven spades. As usual in cases like this, those declarers who had chosen successfully to finesse ex pounded virtuously and volubly on why they had done so. However, I am sure that if the finesse had failed, the other half of the field who had played for the drop would have provided equally cogent reasons for refusing the finesse. One pair who arrived at seven hearts made the contract without "guessing" for the queen. A club was led, Declarer (Al- phpnse Moysc, editor of the Bridge World) won and promptly ruffed a club in dummy. After playing the ace of spades, Moysc cashed the A-K of diamonds and ruffed a diamond. He then drew four rounds of trumps and cashed the king of clubs. The location of the queen of spades now presented no problem. Moysc led a spade and finessed, fully confident that the finesse would succeed. During the play, East had shown up with precisely five diamonds, four hearts and three clubs. Hence he could not have been dealt more than one spade and the finesse against the queen was bound to be successful. Moysc had the best of all po.s sible reasons to finesse. He simply took the precaution of counting to thirteen. He then had a sure thing going for him. WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. Army now assigns officers on a "non-volunteer" basis to the highly dangerous work of the much publicized counter- guerrilla Special Forces, proud wearers of the green beret. All enlisted men within the Special Forces still are volunteers, however. "Munster" actor Gwynne not best lunch companion By BOB THOMAS AP Movie-Televlston Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) — Lunch- Ing with Fred Gwynne during his workday is no easy matter. It's not that Fred isn't a good conversationalist. He is. He's a neat eater, too. It's just that — well, you have to Jook at him. There's something about his appearance that is appetite-robbing. Maybe it's the high, cleft forehead or the ape-liko brow or perhaps the screws at each side of the neck. Fortunately Prod's talk makes you almost overlook his makeup as Herman, the father of CBS 1 "The Munslcrs," He's such a bright and accomplished fellow — former ndvcr tising copy writer, Shake spearian actor, author and illustrator of books — that you won dcr why he's doubling foi Frankenstein's monster in the television scries. "I'm enjoying it, said Fred. He's also doing a good job of supporting his wife end children. "The Munslcrs" has been nudging into the lop 10 in an dicncc ratings and looks set for a lontf ride. 1 had rxpeclcd Fred to be chafing under his monster makeup, which drove Boris Kor- loff lo distraction. "But tho makeup took fivo hours to put -on in those days,' Krai said. "Now it's down t< two hours. Before, they built up the brow willi layer after layer of tissue and spirit gum. The entire upper head is now a single unit thai fits on me. "Sure, I can't wait to get the stuff off every night. "On !hc other hand, this role ymnasium. I've never been in such good physical shape. My jack feels great. The reason is .he way I move! "Something seemed wrong to :ne when I saw Ihe first few rushes. Finally I figured oul what it was: Whenever I bent or .urncd my neck, 1 became .a mm an being in a monster suit, realized I had lo move as .hough f had a spinal fusion, the jack, neck and head moving as one unit." Fr«d, who enjoyt hi* privacy, ilcd another Rood aspect of the role: He is nol identifiable in public. This wasn't the case when lie was playing Officer Muldoon in "Car 54, Where Arc You?" He told of going to a recent basketball game with fellow cnst member Al Lewis. Fans came up to Al and said. "Say, don't you play that Dracula character on 'The Munsters?' " Then they would lake a sweeping glance up nl Fred, lake n second look nnd move on. U.S.Special Forces officers aren't volunteers AP Report By BEM PRICE Bonk takes over service of finding homes for pets NEW YORK W>-They're dealing in pets as well as money at a New York bank which has initiated a new public service program designed to find homes for pets up for adoption. - The Dime Savings Bank of Williamsburgh, in cooperation with the Humane Society, is running ads asking "Is There Room At Your House," together with pictures of animals needing new families. The response has been overwhelming, Ray W. Kline, bank president, reports. The Army said officially that the assignment of non-volunteer officers was "a matter of policy. This policy has been in effect for a number of years and is followed to provide Special Forces training and experience for a larger group of officers within the Army." This policy h*s n«v«r b««n publicized. Another source said the younger officers in the Army just were not volunteering be cause "too many have been reading the casualty lists of Special Forces in Viet Nam." As late as 1960 the men in Special Forces were all volunteers. The Special Forces mission, either behind enemy lines or in counter-guerrilla activities, was considered above and beyond the ordinary call of duty. This apparently still applies to enlisted personnel. "Enlisted personnel In operational detachments are volunteers," the Army said. "There has been no difficulty in obtaining volunteers for such assignments." All Army officers art now required to take either ranger —commando-type training — or airborne training, which Is ranger plus parachute training. Special Forces training Includes airborne, ranger, guerrilla and counter-guerrilla training plus special courses in working with what the Army calls indigenous personnel. The Army spokesman said assignment to Special Forces is considered essential to the professional development of officers. This means that the man who turns down Special Forces work may jeopardize his professional career as a regular officer. Certainly it would have a bearing on selection for promotion. Those in Special Force* now number close to 7,000 although the official strength figure is classified. When it was an all- volunteer outfit, Special Forces probably numbered no more than 1,800. There are specialists wearing the green beret who are not and have not been volunteers. They are known as special action forces and include such support groups as communications ex perts, medics, engineers, psychological operations and civil affairs experts. At last report, this special action force numbered about 1,300 men. Originally, the Special Forces were designed to operate in 10- snan teams behind enemy lines to organize and train dissident groups into irregular fighting forces to carry out sabotage and conduct hit-run attacks. In January 1961, the Special Forces mission was enlarged to embrace counter-guerrilla ac- tivities. This enlargement was a direct result of Communist Viet Cong operations in South Viet Nam. By. September 1962, the Special Forces had been enlarged Try A Wont Ad — 423-4270 three times and, apparently, its required officer strength could no longer be met on a volunteer basis.
