Pass , 76 Pass Pass Pass Opening lead— • J The Reisinger team game is at board-a-match in which a 10-point win counts just as • much as a 2,000-point win. The bidding in the box is that used against George Rapee and Bill Grieve of the team that tied for the trophy last year. South's two- diamond call was what is known as "fourth suit forcing." He really had no convenient bid over two clubs . After North jumped to three spades, South knew Just what to do. He used the five no- trump slam force to ask partner to,bid seven with two of the three top honors. North obliged and West opened the jack .'of diamonds.- South won and led a trump to dummy's queen. East showed out but this didn't worry South at all. He played the ace and another heart to get back to his hand : by ruffing. Bill. Grieve played his. kiijg of hearts after South ruffed. Bill wanted to get South to come back to his hand with a club after South played some more spades! Needless to say, South did just that. He played a spade to dummy's nine, cashed ,the king and led a club. Bill ruffed and South was down one. '" Now let's see what. DiMoisi and Lewis did at the other table. They 'reached seven spades, the same ^ iy, but Harlow Lewis who -sat South went to seven no-trump in an effort to win the board by 10 points. He counted ;six spades, five clubs plus two aces. '..,•: . :,-.••.. This could not be beaten and it became a. 2,320 point pick up' for the same one board a ID-point gain would have won for him. The bidding has fceem West North Ewt South ' 2* Stas 2* 3* . You. South, bold: "What do you do now? A— Bid four no-trump. If 9on pntner shows an ace yott wilt bid sis dubs. TODAYS QUESTION Your partner bids five hearts to show two aces. What do you doaowT Answer Tonxmow Law for today Q. I nearly collided head-on with a truck when the car I was passing speeded up. It was a two-lane highway. Isn't there a law against this? A. Yes. A driver being passed may not increase his speed until the overtaking automobile has completed its pass. Also, on a multiple lane highway where right lane passing is not permitted, a driver blocking the left lane must pull over to the right to permit an overtaking vehicle to pass .when a born is sounded or some other audible signal is given. Although not generally recommended, passing on the right is allowed on a street or highway providing two or more lanes for moving traffic in each direction free of parked cars or other ob-' structions, if there are no signs indicating otherwise and such passing pan be mad* in safety. —Illinois State Bar Assn.
