Neatly played by South, to be I sure, but not the best defense. If fcast returns a diamond at the sec- fond trick, it is all misery and floundering for poor South. Declarer must ruff the second diamond in the dummy. What | next' The best shot is to try for an extra spade trick by laying down the ace and then the queen of spades. (South would do "better if he started the clubs, but he cannot know that.) West takes the king of spades and returns a club. If declarer i ries a club finesse, East wins and leturns a diamond to make dummy ruff with the king. That sets up a trump trick for West as fourth defensive trick. Nor does it help declarer to go up with dummy's ace of clubs. He must then try to cash the jack of spades, but East ruffs with the ten of hearts and the jig is up. FINISH CANASTA FOR FAST OUT By OSWALD JACOBY Written For NBA Service "What is the correct play in this situation?" asks an Ann Arbor correspondent. "It was the first deal of a game, so both sides needed only 50 points for the initial meld. The dealer turned up a red three, freezing the pack. The next up-card was a five. I drew from the stock pile and then held: K-K-K 7-7-7 6-6 5-4 2-2. "I decided that my hand was well-suited to playing for a fast out but was not much good for a long struggle for the pack. Hence 1 melded the three kings and one deuce, and discarded the five. "The next player discarded a six, and my partner drew from the stock. He then added two kings to my meld and also put down three tens and three nines. He onded his play by discarding a Slack three. "The next player made a sale discard, and 1 drew a five from the stock. My hand was: 7-7-7 6-6 5-4-2 "What should I have done?" The best play is to add the deuce to the kings, completing a canasta. Next, meld the three sevens. End your play by discarding the five. Your first meld announced thai you wanted to play for a fast out rather than compete for the frozen pack. Your partner enthusiastically accepted the invitation by melding eight cards from his hand. The chief question is whether or nol to use your own deuce .to complete the canasta. If you hold the deuce, you will be out as soon as you draw a six a king, or another wild card; or as soon as your partner completes the canasta for you. If you use the deuce to complete the canasta you will be out as soon as you draw a six or another wild card. In other words, putting down the deuce hurts you very little. There are five kings already; in sight, so you don't Have a very big chance to draw another in the near future The advantage of melding the deuce is that your partner may be out as soon as the canasta is made for him. That is very likely to be the meaning of his enthusiastic meld, and you must not spoil his chances for the sake of improving your 'own. Mr. Jacoby is unable to answer individual questions on Canasta from readers. However, he will include the most frequently asked questions in his column. Gen. George C.

Calls On Car Owner* To Watch Snow And Sleet BALTIMORE, Nov. 21--All motor vehicle owners in the state were called upon today by th* Maryland Traffic Safety Commission to join in a "mutual defente pact" against the danger-filled attack* oC snow, sleet and ice to be launched soon by Old Man Winter. "If we are adequately prepared for the early phases o( the annual battle with this ancient foe. we stand a better chance of completing the entire cold season without casualties." Paul E. Burke, chairman, said. "Most car owners feel that getting their vehicle ready fpr winter is simply a case of driving into their favorite service station, and having the lights and battery checked, oil and grease changed to lighter grade, the radiator protected with anti-freeze," he declared, adding: "That's a good start, but to put up a successful fight against the sneak attacks of Jack Frost, windshield wipers and defrosters must b« functionlnK perfectly. The NV tlorul Safety Council reports that In on# out of five fatal accidents, the driver's vision WRS obscu»'«d, and often the otacurement Is freezing rain, snow or sleet." "Brake* should be checked for siinultaneouA gripping, tires should be kept at normal pressures, and anti-skid chains should b« carried 'or quick use whenever severe snow and ice conditions develop." Return of synthetic rubber tires. which skid and spin more on Know or Ice, make tire chains more important for avoiding accidents and .rtffic delays on even relatively slight grades during bad weather."
