EXPENSIVE LUXURY It is true that illness is an expensive luxury that very fev people could afford wilhou insurance. Blue Cross. Med care and Medicaid programs But this only helps to partial], efray the enormous cost o tinning a hospital today. If vere not fo rthe fact that hospi als were partially subsidize and privatey endowed, no larg institution could possibly kee ts doors open. Those of us who live in lospital setting ^are aware he tremendous number people who function th ackground and are never seen y the patient. ' '} So massive is the problem, of laintenance in a hospital that defies the imagination of [the atienl confined to a single ooni and in contact with four r five people. Now. about service. In most nstances. the medical needs'of atienls. especially the urgent nes, are handled with speed and competence. Remember hat many patients in a hospital ecome highly selfish, made so iy their discomfort, their fears nd by their loneliness. Their demands sometimes become overwhelming, and far too frequently, unreasonable. i KIND PERSONNEL _,. Yet nurses and personnel offer diligence, kindness and mderstanding, in addiition^to heir medical skill. It is mis ,hat occasionally, under stress, lospital personnel may deviate "rom their expected compassion' and become irritable and abrupt. They, too. are human and react within the framework of their own frailty. About food. No hospital has ever tried lo compete with Maxims in Paris for food and service. Gourmet delights await the palient after he is recovered and out of the hospilal. At least you can be sure that the food you were served was nourishing, easy to digest and well balanced. B.

It musl b right to assume that East reai your diamond lead as a single ton and expected .you to ruf Ihe diamond return at trie! two. East's return in the three ii these circumstances, rathe: than any old diamond, lias a special significance. It indicate that he wants a club return rather than a spade return a trick three. This is entirely con sistenl with the suit-directioi convention by which a playe an designate which suit he vants partner to play after Â·artner ruffs. A low-card return equests the lower-ranking side uit lo be played next; a high-- :ard return requests the higher- anking suit to be played next. So, as between spades a n d clubs, you should play a club at trick thrse. Declarer's hand probably looks something like ,his: *.A K 8 4 * A Q 10 5 3 * K Q 6 +.8 and in that case South goes down one when you return a club, but makes the contract if you return a spade. Let's grant that leading a club at trick three away from Ihe king -- with dummy holding' the Q-J-7-3 -- looks very unappetizing. But, assuming that East is familiar wilh the ruffing convention and does not play his cards helter-skelter, it is clearly the right play. If it turns out that your partner has the spade ace and not the club are, and declarer makes the contract as a result, you can always show partner this column to leach him .the error of his ways.
