North's jump to four hearts was a distinct overbid and South was not at all pleased with the contract. But things started out fairly -well because West opened the king of diamonds and shifted to a club.

Mrs. Helen Wilmoth and Denny of Galesburg; Mrs. Rose Eslinger, Wood River and daughter JoAnn and a friend of Galcs­ burg called Sunday in the home of Mrs. Verna Dunlap. Mr. and Mrs. Joe Lowrey, 600 N. Washington St., observed and dummy was entered with the ace of spades. A low heart dropped the queen from East and West won South's king with the ace. West led back a spade and South went right up with dummy's king. West had dealt and passed and had already shown up with the ace and king of diamonds and the ace of hearts. There was no possibility that he would also hold the queen of spades. South drew West's last trump, cashed his queen of clubs, ruffed his last club in dummy and threw West in with the ace of diamonds. West did not have another spade and had to lead either a club or a diamond. Either one allowed South to ruff in dummy and discard his last spade. South had played the hand very well and had been fortunate to find that West held only two spades to start, but he had been really lucky in his choice of defenders. West should have cashed his ace of diamonds before leading that last spade, whereupon there would have been no way for South to put him in the lead. READ THE CLASSIFIEDS!
