In New Jersey, writes: "It has come to my attention that much of my backache is caused by hard, inflexible plastic seats in subways, cars, buses, and trains. "When the vehicle hits a bump or stops suddenly, the hard seat does not give or provide a cushion. "It is my poor back that takes the punishment. Trains that grind to a sudden h a l t seem to aim directly at my lower spine. Cannot something be d o n e to help the mass transit rider? Surely, some ingenious soul in a research laboratory or design studio can come up with a solution to a problem that plagues me and, I am certain, thousands of others. Dear Miss B.: Your observation is a scientifically acute one. Doctors are aware that impact injuries play an important role in low back problems. It is hoped that your sugges- on will be picked up by a esigner, engineer, and manu- acturer who can incorporate it nto better seats. VIRGO (Aug. 24 to Sept. 23) Your intuition was right.

The jump rebid shows 17 to 19 points, with strength in the unhid suits and, of course, notrump.distribution. D artner is thus placed in a position to judge the best final contract, as the rebid identifies ,he precise nature of the opening bid. . 2. Three diamonds. There is a very good chance for a slam, but the best trump suit and the proper k;vel are still uncertain The intention is to show heart support next and in that way suggest a shortage of clubs. Three diamonds is a strong rebid, since the opener voluntarily climbs into the three level. The h an d is certai nly strong enough for a jump to either th ree spades or four hearts, but neither of these bids would pinpoint your va'ues nearly as well as the sequence you intend to follow. 3. Three hearts. Although thÂ« land is a minimum, standing by itself, it rises in value when a heart fit is discovered. The bid to avoid is two spades, 'artner has guaranteed f i v e learts, so you aim for'.the known 53 fit rather than a suit where partner's holding Â· is unknown. , , , 4. Four hearts This is a very itrong hand in support Â· of learts, and you 'show it by eaping to four It can be safely assumed that partner ha: 10 or more points for his two heart response, which means that game, is virtually certain.' 1 If partner hÂ»s more than minimum va'ues, he will presumably go on towards a stem. Jut all you can do at this point n time is jump to four to indicate at least a moderate inter* est in a slam. '~ 5. Four not rump. This is on* of those relatively infrequent hands where knowing how many aces partner has telis yon how many tricks can be mad* Accordingly, you use Blackwood. The intention is to stop Â»t five hearts if partner responds five diamonds (one ace); to bid six hearts if he responds five hearts (two aces); and. to'go all the way if he responds fivÂ« spades (three aces).
