Tanker car flight COMPTON, Claif. (UPI) Runaway trains are a thing of the past but it took two police units, a helicopter and a locomotive to stop a railroad tank car that broke away yesterday and thundered 10 miles down the track at speeds up to 46 mph. The 50,000-gallon tanker, containing liquid sugar, broke loose in the Southern Pacific switching yards and rolled 3 miles before a citizen saw it picking up speed and notified the sheriff. The police units spotted the tanker as it swept through the heavily populated areas of South Los Angeles, Watts, Willowbrook and the north part of Compton. They raced ahead to block the intersections. The police helicopter crew sighted the speeding tanker and flew in front. Equipped with a siren and bullhorn it relayed a warning. At one point children were warned off the tracks. An SP locomotive caught up with the car in Compton and connected, easing the tanker to a halt. Goren By CHARLES H. By deliberately surrendering a trick, West was able to capitalize on the roadblock which Nature had created for South, the declarer at three no trump, and the latter was obliged to pay off to the brilliancy of his opponent. West opened his fourth best club which was ducked in dummy, and East won the trick with the king. The latter continued with the ten and, at trick two, West was called on to make the key play of the entire deal. The normal procedure, of course, would be to let the ten go through for, if East has another club to lead, West's jack will drive out the ace on the next round. West reasoned that his partner probably did not have any more clubs, however, for it seemed unlikely that South would open with one no trump without a club stopper unless he had at least three small cards in that suit. West was not especially concerned with the establishment of the clubs, however, for the dummy's ace was not only a Neither vulnerable. North deals.

If, for example, East and South each had two diamonds, then there we* no way for the latter to gain access to the dummy except in the club suit. When the ten of clubs was led at trick two, West overtook with the jack which was permitted to hold. West continued with the six and South was able to win two tricks in the suit by finessing North's nine, but he was not pleased with the present .that had been given to him. The diamond suit was now hopelessly blocked and declarer wound up with only seven tricks on the deal. The trick that West donated in clubs came back with interest, since it deprived declarer of four diamond tricks. If South is left to bis own devices, he can take six diamonds and three side aces without surrendering the lead.
