In today's hand, .-Â·-Sharp defense robbed declarer of the simple play for his contract, but he was clever enough TO find a satisfactory substitute. West opened the king of diamonds and realized the situation when his partner dropped the queen. West thoughtfully shifted to *a trump, the best defense. East naturally took the ace of trumps and led a second round of trumps, thus killing dummy's ruffing powr er, The contract would have been easy against any other defense. South was sure of five trumps in Ms own hand and four top cards in the dummy. If he could ruff a diamond with dummy's ten, the tenth trick would surely develop. If East over*ruffed, the South hand would ,win six trump tricks: if East failed to over-ruff, dummy's trump would win a trick. Declarer won the second round ot trumps with dummy's ten, cashed the top spades, and ruffed * spade. Next he drew the last trump with the king of hearts and entered dummy with a club to lead another low spade. East played the queen of spades, and South calmly discarded a diamond. spades much- needed tenth trick. What's more, ' East had to lead a club ( he had "Â· nothing but clubs left) to dummy's ace, thus enabling dummy to gain the lead. Now dummy's nine of was high as- declarer's t Only the U.

One of my melds was three fours and two deuces. I held two more fours in my hand. My opponent (friend wife i felt safe in discarding a four to rne. "When 1 took the discarded four, she claimed that my play was illegal. She said that 1 could, have made the canasta with the cards that I held and that I was therefore guilty of misrepresentation. She was sure that you would agree with her. "What about it ?" I have to rule against friend wife. A player doesn't have to make a canasta simply because he happens to have the required cards in his hand. If he keeps the cards in his hand, he is taking the risk that the opponents will meld out suddenly, in which case he will never make his canasta. In return for taking that risk, he is entitled to the big bonanza when he wins the discard pile. This may be called misrepresentation or deception or low cunning, if you like. It is nevertheless clever play and as legal as a policeman's whistle. My experience is that women can f fr _ f f play just as craftily as men. once I / I f f c N f l i r T *V. n ..~ Â·Â«,,* 4UÂ«:'Â« --: -- j., * _ n. f - \- - I Â·"Â·**Â· *f ** i w I t strawberry ,5 This plant usually bears w fruit 8U is to breed the common garden variety 12 Bewildered 13 Age 14 Roman emperor 15 Fine-grained rocks 17 European, swallow 18 Hazard 20 Mexican laborers 21 New version ' (ab.) 22 White 23 Unfettered 25 For fear that 28 Cover 29 Rough lava 30 Out of (prefix) 31 Unit of wire measurement 32 Forest creature 35 Summon 36 Symbol lor sodium 37 Article 38 Silk fabric 41 Genus tf geese 44 Ascended 46 French oyster pond 47 Mud 48 Bustle 50 Quantity of medicine 51 Hessian river 53 Social insects VERTICAL 1 Insect 2 Small island 3 Erudite 4 In one's gift 5 Legal point 6 Symbol for erbium 7 Barrier in a river 8 Fanciful No Comment Â· BUGS BUNNY Don't Spill m TWENTY-DOLUAR BILL 1^ ALL.'

So beware of friend wife when she takes this lesson to heart and starts to play tricks of her own. Q--My opponents melded out and caught me with all four black threes in my hand. Is there a spe- cial.penalty for this ? A--No. Each black three counts only 5 points. AH four together count only 20 points. There is no special penalty of any kind for black threes. * * * Q--I "forgot to put a red three at my first turn. At my next turn I did put it down. Was I entitled to dravyanother card from the stock to replace it ? A--Yes. The usual procedure is to make your normal draw from the stock, put the red three down, and then draw another card to replace it. You are not permitted to take the discard pile at that turn.
