Strangely enough, those who recognize this play instantly as declarer never think of it when defending.

East took the ace of diamonds - and there went the, ; defense. •'- -'•' South won the next club, led a dia-, mond to the queen and gave"up a diamond. Since he could easily, get back to dummy with the king of spades to cash the rest of the diamonds, he had no trouble making his contract, v ..,..» When South leads the king of, dia-. monds, East should refuse the trick. This hold-up cannot cost anything. East will surely get his ace of diamonds sooner or t later. When South is allowed to win the first diamond trick, he continues the suit. East wins with the jack of diamonds and returns a club. •' Diamonds Shut Out South is in no Immediate dnager, but he has only eight tricks. Declarer can reach dumrfly with the king of spades to set up the diamonds, but he cannot get back to dummy to cash the rest of the; suit. In short, the hold-up play limits South to one diamond trick instead of allowing him to win four tricks in the suit. It pays to know a play that will save three tricks! DAILY QUESTION Partner opens with 2 NT, and the next player passed. You hold: S- J 8 7 5; H- J 10 8 6; D- A J 7; C- 7 3. What do you say? , . ' ANSWER: Bid three clubs, the Stayman Convention. This asks partner to bid a major suit of four or more cards. If he has no major suit he will bid three diamonds, and you will go on to three notrump. If he can show a major, you will raise to four in his suit • 3&S&$^ Ann Landers ss&ti^^ - Dear Ann Landers: We keep hearing lectures and reading articles for parents "who need to know how to help their children get off drugs. I have a different kind of question. What can children do to help parents who become a'ddicted? J am not speaking .^ about pot or LSD or heroin. I'm referring to a Wee, respectable middle-aged couple in the suburbs who are hooked on barbiturates and amphetamines. My mother and dad have a medicine . chest full of Seconal, Tuinal, Nembutal, barbital, phenobarbital and Eskat- rol, .:...,-":. . ., ... - 1 - • I'm sure they would be highly insulted if anyone suggested that they were drug addicts. When I told my mother amphetamines were "speed" she said, "Don't be silly." My dad insists he can't get a night's sleep without pills. They both seem to• think they are in no danger because the drugs are prescribed by our family doctor. What can I do to help them? -CONCERNED SON Dear Son: Call youf family doctor and ask him if he is aware that your parents are addicted. He is the one ..• who should handle this problem - and I hope he does, promptly. " ' Armed Forces S. Sgt. Gary S. Christensen, son of Mr. and Mrs. Andrew H.

She needs to hear {rom family and friends at this critical timeJ' • So often when a husband takes his life, the widow wonders if people think* perhaps their marriage was bad - tha"t if she had been a better wife she could have prevented the tragedy. Thank God my family and friends didn't think that way a year ago. • -N.J. WIDOW Dear Friend: I appreciate your coii- firmation. Only one who has been there knows what it's like. ..,.. ,, Dear Ann Landers: I have read with interest several letters in your column from widows whose husbands had very little life insurance, or in some cases none at all. Some of those widows were bitter because their husbands had not "planned ahead." But in my case, I was the guilty party. Every time our agent suggested that Mel increase his insurance, I came out with that stupid remark, "We're insurance poor." The truth was that I, like so many other wives, thought my husband would live forever. Widowhood was something that happened to other women. Today , I'm that other woman. Last week, while going through my husband's desk drawers I came across an insurance proposal for- $40,000 of life insurance. It was dated five months before Mel died. It was a good plan and we could, have afforded it. Our agent was trying to help arid I knew it, but Mel was in perfect health and I figured I could use, that $21.57 a month toward a new color TV. , Today, I'm, working in a steak restaurant trying to keep my family together. Believe me, it's tough. I hope WANT A SNAPPY RETURN ^ on a small investment?;... It's simple ... Try a low cost Family Want Ad Today... Call 2322171. ^ItUieUMKX, July 10-13, Box offiet op«n 6 MI.
