THE FW?TYOF TWELVE FRANCES DRAKE Your Daily Horoscope I knew that my wife was an alcoholic when I married her. I had hoped that I, who gave up drinking four years ago. could reform her, too. I have been unsuccessful. She is 29 and wauls to have a family. Will this be dangerous to her? Mr. A.B.B., II. Dear Mr. B.: The danger of pregnany to your wife is minimal as compared to those that h e r child would face after it is born. A well-authenticated study was recently presented by Dr. Kenneth L. Jones, of the University of Washington School of Medicine, on this subject. Dr. Jones studied a large group of female alcoholics and came to the conclusion thai "children of alcoholic mothers fail to thrive physically anc mentally." In fact, the oulook for child ren born to chronic alcoholic women is so. poor that the suggestion is made for the ter mination of pregnancy is soro nstances.

There are plays simple in ruclure that are nonetheless ifficult to perceive. Take this case where South as in four hearts and got a rump lead. After winning with he queen, he played a l o w pade to the jack, hoping to nd West with the king and n that way finish with either en or eleven tricks. But East won the jack with he king and returned a trump, thus holding South to nina tricks. Dummy's ace oF clubs withered on the vine, and Sou Eh eventually lost two diamonds and another spade to.go down one. For practical purposes, South could have guaranteed the contract by playing the queen of spades at trick two instead of the deuce. Barring exceptional distribution, this play was likely to produce at least ten tricks. Let's take the actual case first. What could East do if he took the. queen of spades with the king? His best play, a trump. Iwould leave South in command -- with ten tricks consisting of two spades, six hearts, a diamond and a club. if East declined the queen, of spades, South would play the ace. ruff a spade, discard a loser on the ace of clubs and finish with eleven tricks. The outcome would be essentially the same if West held the king of spades. He would encounter the same difficulties as East. It is sot easy to think of tda queen of spades lead at t r i c k two. It in not customary o lead the queen with such a holding as A-Q-B-2 facing J-5, but that is hardly a good reason f o r failing to make the play. Custom is sometimes more honored in tlie breach than the observance.
