THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 1930^ Fort Smith Expert Plays for Radio Bridge Audience The radio bridge audience gleaned some good tips on expert play from the fourteenth of Milton C. Work's Radio Bridge Games, broadcast Tuesday from Station KLCN, with Mrs. E. L. Bradbury of Dallas, -Texas, Miss Marguerite Cohr of Fort Smith, Ark., Earl S. Cobey of Rochester, N. Y., and Gratz M Scott of New York City as the exhibition players. The hands were: Mr. Scott, Dealer, South: Spades, Q, 10, -1; Hearts A. K, C; Diamonds, A. K, 5, 4: Clubs, K, J, 2. Mr. Cobey, West: Spades, 9, 6, 5, 3; Hearts, Q. 10, 9, Diamonds, Q, 10. 8, 3; Clubs, 7, 5. Mrs. Bradbury, North: Spades, K 1; Hearts, J, 4; Diamonds, J, 9, 7 G; Clubs, Q, 10, 9. 8, 4. Miss Cohn East: Sp.ides, A, J, S, 2; Hearts, I 7, 5, 3, 2; Diamonds, 2; Clubs. A 0, 3. The only bid was (lie opening declaration of one No Trump by Mr. Scott, Dealer, South, which all passed, Miss Colin, East, would have liked to have made a lead- directing bid to keep her partner from opening Diamonds. With only a singleton In that suit, she appreciated that West was likely to be long in it and lead it, and that sh: would be unable to help establish It; but she had no suit in which a bid would have been justified. So with South as Declarer at one No Trump, Mr. Cobey, West, made ihc original lead of the Trey of Diamonds, the fourth-best of the itronger of his two long suits. Mrs. Bradbury spread her hand for Dummy, and Mr. Scott, Declarer, .vas surprised to find that he had (our cards in Dummy and four in nis own hand of the leader's suit.

He knew the lead was fourth-best, and subtracting three from eleven and Jin ding the remainder to be eight, he realized that Miss Cohn. fast, could have no Diamond higher than the Trey, because he himself In his two hands had the entire eight the the lead had shown were not In the hand of the leader. By the same reasoning, Decfoi- er could tell that the leader's remaining Diamonds were the Queen 10 and 8. Planning Jiis campaign before making his first play, Declarer counted six sure (ricks . . . one Spade, two Hearts and three Diamonds. If the adverse Ace of Clubs were part of a three-card suit, not more than two Clubs could be won unless Dummy's long Clubs were established and an entry made in that hand to cash them. Tlio King of Spades wcis not nn assured entry because East, miuht hnve the Ace; so Declarer determined in make up an entry in Dummy's Diamonds us lie needed three Club;; for game. Therefore to the first- trick l)c- chircr played Dummy's fi of Diamonds. Miss Colin, East, played tile Deuce, and Declarer, South, won with the Ace, making Dummy's Jack a sure entry. To trick two Declarer led the King of Clubs; West played the 5; Dummy (he 4; East the Trey. MlS5 J5LYTHEVILLE. (ARK.)

Declarer, had his game won, whether he won or lost this (rick; his best flmnce tor nn extra trick seemed to be to play small from South, hop- Ing that East lind the Queen of Hearts. So South played the 6 of Henrls; West won with (ho Queen; Dummy played the 4. West returu- e!l the suit, leading the 10 of Hearts. Dummy played the Jnck; East the Deuce; South, Declarer, the King. Declarer then led his 5 of Diamonds. He could mark every Dln- j iiiond, end kjieii' lie must Joue one unless he could catch West nap pins and induce him to play n email Diamond oil this trick. In that, case he might shut, out an adverse Diamond. But Mr. Cobey could also place all the Diamonds, and knew his Queen of Diamonds would die unless he played it on this trick. Accordingly he did so; Dummy played the 7; and East was called upun to make n difficult discard. She knew that one moro Heart lead would establish two Hearts In lier hand, to ivlilch her Ace of Spades was her only entrv. But she also knew that Declarer had the Ace of Hearts, and that if Hearts were led, Declarer, two Diamonds, and two Clubs . . . which with the four tricks he already had, would insure Ills gome. Miss Cohn saw thai a Spade lead offered the only chance to save game; should her partner happen to have the Queen and another Spade, Uie lead of the Queen through Dummy's King would stop game. Miss Colin therefore nskcd for a Spade by discarding the 5 of Hearts. To trick eight, West, noting his partner's discard, and realizing H was possible thai she had the ACC and Queen of Spades, led his best Spade, the 9. Dummy played the 7, and Enst, appreciating that South had the Queen, played her Ace She knew her partner would liavt ed Ihc Qwn If he Imtl linil It. •r would have won ullh Ilie Queen and Him Irave dlsninlixl his iwo »K Slides on Dummy's Clubs.

JtMurdeEJBackstairs" is Tingling Detective Story Tl/TURDER had been committed at the fashionable Berkeley mansion, where house guests were gathered for a week-end party. The bod_yof Doris Matthews, a pretty maid, was found in the swimming pool. The only clew was the pungent odor of perfume that hovered about the murdered girl. Even this insubstantial clew apparently was valueless because Gigi Berkeley, beautiful young daughter of the host, had sprinkled all the guests with a similar perfume the preceding night. A SHARP - THINKING young detective, •^ "Bonnie" Dundee, was present to keep an eye on Seymour Crosby, one of the guests, who had never quite satisfactorily explained circumstances surrounding the death of Ins first wife. . . How the keen-witted Dundee solved the crime, found that the murder of Doris Matthews was intended for someone else whose death had long been plotted, furnishes one of the most thrilling, yet true to life, mysteries ever written.
