"I was lining him. up to do 'Taxi' at 20th Century-Fox. One of those tough guy roles that made him famous," the agent said. Garfield had insisted to the subcommittee he'd never been a Communist. And friends of the star, who died Wednesday at the age of 39, say he often told them he was a loyal American and had never joined the "'party. But after his appearance as a witness, a congressman declared his testimony would be inspected for possible perjury. Investigation showed he spoke the truth. But by then he wasn't getting any movie offers. In recent months, his agent frankly says. Garfield was "seeking employment." "This worry could very well have contributed to his death." Chasen said. "He'd been emotionally under a cloud. . . all those rumors and innuendos." A Central Press Feature MUST DOUBLE OR PASS MAN'Y players understand what-a "forcing pass' 1 is.

Pass 2 NT Pass 3 • Pass 3 NT With vulnerability as it was, South should have passed East's bid of 2-Clubs—the first having been artificial—to see if North wanted to double it, instead of bidding- his diamonds. But his mind was on his original bidding- plan, which was to bid hearts first, then diamonds and later re- bid the diamonds to let North know he had two five-card suits. A better bidder, however, would at all times have his mind on a more basic goal, the putting of the most possible points on his side's score. If South had passed at that stage, as he should have. North would have doubled the 2-Clubs. which could have been lambasted for a bonanza of a score compared to what a not vulnerable game might produce. There would halve been no chance that North would pass and leave East in the 2-Clubs undoubted. North's first- round business double guaranteed the certainty that he would take definite action on his next turn, in the form of a bid if he couldn't double whatever reached him. In other words, the pass forced out of South by the conditions of the moment would have been a, forcing pass upon North. The -idea back of such a pass as South's would have been this: "If we have them on a limb, don't shake them down until we each have a crack at;them."
