Freeport (III.) Journal-Standard Pg. 22 Mon., July 1, 1968 By ALFRED SHEINWOLD Hollywood Bridge Furnishes Moral Today's hand was played on the set of the new movie starring Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway, with whom I worked for a week as technical adviser on their passionate chess game. The stars didn't play in our bridge game, but the hand was oddly related to their movie. I won Hie first trick with dummy's ace of diamonds, drew two rounds of trumps, cashed the top spades and ruffed a spade. East, a script girl with a talent North dealer Both sides vulnerable NORTH * A73 WEST * 9862 V 85 0 KQ107 * Q98 North 1 NT 3 * 4 O 5* O AJ * K 10 3 2 EAST * QUO 5 V 93 O 96542 * 76 SOUTH 4 K4 V KQJ62 0 83 4» AJ54 East South West Pass 3 <0 Pass Pass 4 4» Pass Pass 4 <j> Pass Pass 6 <2 All Pass Opening lead — OK for bridge, played the five, jack and queen of spades, concealing the ten. Next .came a diamond, and West took his queen. The idea was to swindle West into leading clubs, which would give me a free finesse and the slam. But West avoided the trap, returning the ten of diamonds. The ruff in dummy and one club discard from my hand did me no particular good. East dropped the nine of diamonds on this trick, trying to look like a girl who had started with only three diamonds. It seemed to me that East had all five of the missing clubs, together with three diamonds, three spades and two trumps. Good Advice Just as I came to this conclusion, McQueen walked by and called out over his shoulder, "Don't trust her." Since McQueen hadn't seen any of the cards, his advice was obviously harmless, but East couldn't conceal a look of dismay and annoyance. Many bridge players have called me dumb, but nobody has ever accused me of being blind. Changing plans instantly, I cashed the ace of clubs and finessed through West for the queen of clubs, making my slam. It was the "Thomas Crown Affair" in miniature and had the same moral: a good man can get away with a well-planned swindle if he doesn't trust a woman. DAILY QUESTION Partner opens with 1-NT (16 to 18 points), and the next player passes. You hold: S-A 7 3- H- A10 7 4; D-A J; C-K 10 3 2. What do you say? ANSWER: Bid two clubs, the Stayman Convention, asking partner to bid a major suit of our or more cards if he can. If partner bids hearts, you will bid six hearts; otherwise, you will work your way to six no- trump. (A POCKET GUIDE TO BRIDGE is available.

Corp Doctor Uses TV To Diagnose Distant Patient BOSTON (AP) - Television has been used by a doctor to interview, examine and diagnose a patient miles away. Massachusetts General Hospital demonstrated the'new technique Saturday. A doctor at the hospital and a volunteer patient three miles away saw each other on television screens and spoke over a radio hookup. j The doctor used his television screen to view charts, X-rays: and electrocardiograms. Aided I by a nurse with the patient, the doctor got direct readings of blood pressure, heartbeat, pulse and respiration. j Dr. Kenneth T. Bird, associate physician at the hospital, tle-j veloped the television technique j and called it "an extension of) the usefulness of the physician." I Ask Your Grocer For ...
