South decided he could play the hand at no-trump if he could stave ofi a heart opening lead. H'is bid WHEN PROBLEMS CRU FOR THINKING STRAIGHT- GOODCHEWIMG HELPS YOU CON6ENTRATE...ENJOY WRIGtEY'S SPEARMINT GUW! of two hearts was an attempted swindle, leading to Ihe expecte contract of three no-trump. West, who had a very good nose smell something fishy about the bidding and therefore opened the three of hearts in spite of South'*, heart bid. Declarer played the ten of hearts from dummy, and Easl won \vith t the-king. Peter IJeventritt, who held Easl cards, made the rather natural ret u r n of the jack of spndes. anci South put up the ace of spades to win the trick. West, who was Sam Rossat, tried his hand at. swindling by dropping the queen oJ spades on this trick. This play made it appear thai East had led the jack of spades from a holding of ,1-10-2. Declarer therefore went over to dummy with a club to lead a second round of spades from dummy. When Leventritt naturally played the deuce of spades, South finessed the eight. Rossant won with the. ten of spades and led another heart. Declarer looked anxiously at the dummy's J-6 of hearts and decided that his only chance to recover was to put up the queen of hearts and win the trick with it. This was a sad mistake, as it turned out. Leventritt won with the ace of hearts and returned the nine, whereupon Rossanl overtook with the jack of hearts and cashed the eight of hearts for the fifth defensive trick. Strength For Today By Earl L. Douglass GOLDEN DREAMS Human energy and ambition are wonderful things. Lincoln rose from a log cabin to the White House, and the annals of our country are full of stories of bootblacks and newsboys who became industrial m a g n a t e s through industry and vigor. If a man really sets his heart on something, and completely dedicates himself to it, he can usually accomplish it. But how important it is to devote ourselves to something worthwhile! A small aim cannot make a great man, and a bad aim wastes power that could have - been, used for a good purpose. Those people who make mere wealth or social position or sensual pleasure their goal often achieve it, but they find that the achievement leaves them unhappy and still dissatisfied. A Greek legend tells of King Midas, who was so greedy for wealth that he prayed for the power to turn things to gold by touching ihem. His \vish granted, he went about delighied at first, transforming everything around him, and leaping up incredible riches. But lis joy was short-lived. When he :ried to eat, his food turned to gold in his mouth, so that he sat hun- Fabufous Beast Answer to Previous Puzzle (oofs 7 Seines 8 Garden 9 Either 10 Color 11 Mariner 12 Dasheen 17 Chinese measure 20 Substitutes 21 Young frogs HOJR2ZONTAL 3 Climbing 1 Depicted P* ant fabulous beast * Cerium 8 II resemble* (symbol) a 5 Atop 13 Income « Spoil 14 IWountai nymph 15 Merry 16 Name 18 Accomplished ISSufflx 20 Be made of 22 Behold! 23 Roman emperor 25 Century plant 24 Was 27 Adorn disorderly 28 Beetles 29 Mystic ejaculation 30 Page (ab.) 31 Tungsten ab.) 32 Giant king of Bashan 33 Encourage 35 It has the tail of a 3fl Cipher 39 Comfort 40 Area measure 41 Fibers 47 Exists 48 Scrap 50 Persian city 51 Legal matters 52 Roman roads 54 Gourmet 56 Greek populace 57 Sadden VERTICAL 1 Imperative 2 Tidier T A M A.U RAIL o A T 26 GaHery 33 Insect 34 Chemical salt 36 Willows 37 Capes 42 Russian news agency 43 Room (ah.) 44 Retired 45 Back of neck 46 Fall in drops 49 Jewel 51 Regret . 53 Artificial language 55 Credit (ab.) 57 'IS 23 BUGS BUNNX Try These 37 Or Not--They',·!
