"See Me Betorc You Die" Dial 2061 1950, the same area increased only 12 per cent. They said southerners use their telephones more frequently than subscribers anywhere else in the country. Calls originating in the company's territory average seven per telephone each day, which is the highest average in the Bell system. A Central Press Feature South decided, to seek them by double-finessing" diamonds. So after winning with the heart. A, he led to the club A and sent adequate use of them. Solid com- the diamond 5 to the 10, which binatioas of cards topped by the the K .won. The heart 9 to the K jack or even a lower card can be was followed by the diamond 7 the crux of many a hand, especial- lead, the J going on, the Q winning and the A being used next. Now the spade J was finessed to the K and the heart 10 came back to the Q. "With the dummy denuded of entries, he felt that game rested on finding the spade Q now blariJv- Ke laid down the A, so the 10 and the club K completed a fortunate game for him. South had a better chance to develop tricks in spades than in diamonds, with all touching cards from the J down. When' in dummy oh the first trick, he should have finessed the spade J at once, which the K would have won. Prepared then for another spade finesse as well as two diamond finesses, he would have had lots of strings to his bow. With the cards as they were,, he would have earned a deserved reward by scoring an extra trick if he played this sounder way. NOTICE LOW SEQUENCES ONE OF the weaknesses of average players is their fauure to notice low sequences and make ly when the contract is No Trump. Many players seem more bent upon winning of finesses than upon playing so that a sequence of the kind mentioned can develop the needed tricks. $9854 A-Q 10 6 3 K732 J 108 54 .72 N W E S A J10 KQ72 7 5 , AKS5 V 963 + K9S 4 A J 10 9 7 (Dealer: South. ,N o rt h-South vulnerable.)
