(© 197S King Features Syndicate, Inc.) Today's Cryptoquip clue :J equals E Bridge By ALFRED SHEINWOLD You've probably heard the expression "Cover an honor with an honor," It's not a good rule to follow, but many of your opponents swear by it. Give them an honor to cover whan you will profit by the cover, but conceal the honor from them , when you' don't want a cover. ' South dealer Both sides vulnerable NORTH WEST 4 0 * 0 * Q10 J8 Q87.3 0 AQ1083 * SOUTH 643 1065' AKJ52 64 EAST 4J982 V Q9432 0 64 * J*7 South 3 NT <y AK? 0 109 4 K952 West North Pass 1 O Pass 2 0 All Pass , Opening lead -, + 8 East pass Pass West leads the eight of clubs, East puts up the jack, and you, South, win with the king. West would hardly lead your bid suit if he had only, four cards of the suit himself. Hence you must win nine, tricks on the run. If you lose a trick, the opponents will take four clubs as well. You need at least four diamond tricks. How should you play the suit? Lead Is Important .,,. If you lead the ten of diamonds, . West will cover the honor. When West plays his queen of diamonds you must win in dummy. Now you are limited to three diamond tricks. Since you donit want this to happen you must conceal the ten of diamonds when you first tackle the suit. Begin the diamonds by leading the nine from your hand instead of the ten. Unless West is right on his toes he will duck your nine of diamonds. Once you have stolen that trick you can lead the ten of diamonds to repeat the finesse. You can overtake with dummy's <• jack if West plays low, and you make your contract with an overtrick. DAILY QUESTION Partner opens with 1 NT (16 -to 18 points), and the next player passes. You hold: S-Q10; H-J8; D-Q87,3;C- A Q 10 8 3. What do you say? ANSWER: Bid 3 NT. You have 11 points in high cards, so the combined count should be 27 to 29, more than enough to yield a sound play for game. Game in a minor suit (diamonds or clubs) is far less assured.

Answers Your Questions Dear Ann Landers: This letter-will never appear in your column because it is so crazy, but I'm going to write it anyway because I have to let off steam. .My boyfriend and I have been going together for 10 months. Ed's a nice guy but he gets unhappy if he isn't the cen- ^er of attention. When we are with family or friends and Ed can't get the spotlight he begins to make animal sounds..Ed was raised on a farm and can do the whole barnyard. His cow imitations are so lifelike you wouldn't belieVe it. I find this gimmick childish and annoying. His cackling, crowing, quacking, clucking and barking has derailed many a good conversation. Any sug-.. gestion's? -ED'S GIRL Dear Girl: When someone else tells Ed to stop making a jackass out of himself, he'll probably quit: I hope it happens soon. Until then, ignore the clown. * * * Dear Ann Landers: A recent column raised my dander! A woman wrote suggesting that "domestic engineer" was a better title than plain old "Housewife." You agreed with her! Why is it that everyone wants to be an engineer these days? The guy down the street takes a three-week course on how to fix refrigerators and suddenly he's a "refrigeration engineer." The gardener is a "landscaping engineer." Tjash collectors are "sanitation engineers." While most of these people spent their youth on fun and games, I was in college pounding the books. No rah-rah fraternity stuff. That was for the liberal arts and business majors.

It was work - five long years, to be exact. Today I am an engineer, a professional certified by the state and mighty proud of it. I resent people taking my title Without having earned it. Tell that housewife to call herself "doctor of domestic drudgery" and see how the M.D.s like it! I'm signing myself - A PROFESSIONAL ENGINEER Dear P.E.: I have been inundated with letters from professional engineers '- all mad at me. Why don^t you characters wake up and smell the'cof- fee? That title "domestic engineer" is so patently pompous that no one in his right mind would take it seriously. Where's your sense of humor, fellas? * * •* . ..• Dear Ann Landers: 1 1 live iri Rockville Center, N.Y., and have been a fan of the Mets for a long time. They are so great I'd walk to the end of the earth to see them play. Something about the Mets has been bothering me and I never knew who to ask. A buddy of mine said, "Ask Ann Landers. If she doesn't know she'll find out." So, here's the question: Why don't our wonderful Mets have their names on the backs of their uniforms like the other clubs? Thanks, Ann. - PROUD' OF THE HOME TEAM Dear Proud: The Mets aren't alone. Many teams in the majors don't sew players' names on the backs of their uniforms..Unlike .pro football, where the league dictates uniform styles in minute detail, baseball clubs are free to do as they please. The variety is wide - all the way from the Oakland A's (whose sartorial elegance has been likened to the customers in a gay bar) to the conservative Cubs, Mets and Yankees, who still dress like Babe Ruth.
