Tho difference, 450 points, was half of the w i n n i n g team's margin of victory. Johnny Crawford held the North hand in the first room. He decided to risk the underbid of two diamonds rather than the overbid of two clubs. If South had to pass at two diamonds, there might be no game. A second possibility was that West might then re-open the bidding, which would give Crawford a chance to bid again to show his m a x i m u m values* Moreover, if South did bid again, Crawford was in the clear. He had already announced a weak hand with diamond support. If South could still hope for a game in the face of such an announcement. North could afford to accept any game invitation. As it -happened, B. ,T. Becker, with the South hand, did bid again. Crawford could then show his clubs and eventually raise diamonds again. There was nothing much to the play, of course. South could ruff spades twice in the d u m m y and lead diamonds twice through East. The defenders could win only a spade and the ace of trumps. In the second room Charles H. Goren held the North hand. He decided in favor of a first response of two clubs. Hi* partner naturally bid two diamonds, whereupon Goren was at the crossroads. If he raised to three diamonds, his partner would almost undoubtedly bid three no-trump. What then? Goren decided to settle for a sure but small plus score at two NORTH 2« A 4 V K 6 5 * 7 5 4 3 * A J 8 5 3 WEST EAST A A Q 9 6 5 A K 1 0 8 7 V I 0 8 3 V J 9 7 4 * S 4 A ,110 *Q1078 4.94 SOUTH (D) ' 4 J 3 2 ¥ A Q 2 South 1* 2N.T. 3 * * K 2 North-South vul.

OSWALD JACOBT Written For NEA Service "Most of the bidding problems in your daily question have been fairly clear cut," writes a Nashville correspondent. "Don't you fellows ever get borderline hands? If so. what do you do with them?" We certainly do get borderline hands. We do just what everybody else ioes. We argue about them. For e x a m p l e , today's hind caused a heap of argument when it came up in the recent team match for the-championship of the United States. One team got to a makable vulnerable game, and the. other team stopped at two dia- diamonds. Incidentally, the experts are still arguing about this hand. While they're arguing Crawford's team holds the championship. WHEN KNOTTY PROBLEMS HAVE YOU STEWING, RELAX, MISTER- JUST START CHEWING... WRI6LEVS SPEARMINT GUM Strength For Today By Earl I,.

Some folks have a "despisery" as commodious as the biggest deep freeze on the market. Into it they put all sorts of people. There is the boss who plays favorites: the woman in the bridge club who talks too much: the chap oh the campus xvho has every 'characteristic his classmates dislike; the minister who preaches too long; the politician who belongs to the opposite party; the TV actor who tries to be funny and isn't. Many a person of promise has had his life or hers ruined by toting around continually a des- pisery list and reading the list over at every off moment. If we will give up this sort of thing we may have to suffer a few fools and suffer them gladly, but that is not too big a price to pay for peace ot mind. We can be sure that our despisery list will make us a lot more unhappy than the people we despise. There are many silly and annoying people in the world. Let us reconcile ourselves to that fact, (Maybe we are among the number.* So let us be patient with others-with life's events; above all, with ourselves.
