South was in bad shape. He played his diamonds until West trumped the third round. West then cashed his two remaining spades to defeat the contract by two tricks. The result of the hand demonstrates the danger which is inherent in a suit contract when the ratio of trumps is only seven •to the opponent's six. Suit contracts are ordinarily not desirable unless the- declarer's side has eight or more trumps. Game contracts can be played and made with a total of seven trumps, but they frequently require special handling- by the declarer to make up for the trump deficiency. The ordinary tactics of suit play mar.y times have to be abandoned. A case in point Is today's hand. South should not have trumped the third round of spades. He cannot afford to put himself in the position where unless the adverse trumps arc 3-3, he may lose control of the hand. His proper play is to discard a club on the third spade. This will leave him in command if the trumps divide no worse than 4-2. If East, after winning the spade queen, returns a club, South takes the ace, four trump tricks and five diamonds. Declarer's generosity in conceding- the third spade is a necessary extravagance. By Josephine Culbertson 'South dealer.

Kis hand was much too good to pass, considering the diamond fit and the newly discovered heart fit. The danger was strong that North had only throe hearts for his belated heart bid. To bid four diamonds might sound weak to his partner's ears:. and to bid five diamonds was overly aggressive. Torn botwoi;n which of the three bids to make.
