� � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � �������������������������� ������������������������ � ���������������������������� ��� Marmaduke ® By Brad Anderson HOROSCOPE /JERALDINE SAUNDERS ARIES (March 21-April 19): The next few days are good times to make your mark in public. If you are doing work that you love, increased compensation is likely. If you love someone you work with, heightened closeness is at hand. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your sex appeal gets a boost for the next several days, so close lucrative deals and make yourself known to important people. Make plans for romantic getaways with a significant other. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Intensive mental effort can pay off. You might need to buy a larger piggy bank if you play your cards right the rest of this week. Those close are turned on by big money and the anticipation of sensual pleasures. CANCER (June 21-July 22): If you want to party this weekend, you must work hard and apply yourself today. People may be critical early in the day, but your ability to act quickly and precisely will win approval. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You are at your entertaining best for the next few days, and likely to enjoy increased popularity. Put this to good use and make financially advantageous agreements. New relationships are likely to be blessed by material success. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Put plans in motion for a romantic weekend. A few well said words can set the stage to make money for you, or allow you to end up tightly entwined with the person of your dreams. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): For the next few days, the stars spell out LOVE, so if you have your eye on someone special, be sure to ask for a date or make arrangements for a romantic weekend. Put finishing touches on moneymaking projects. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Enhance your reputation where money or love is concerned over the next several days. You are a powerhouse of sensuality, and should plan on intimate meetings with someone near and dear . SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): If things were unclear earlier in the week, now you will find that words are crystal clear. Pave the way for lucrative business arrangements. Work hard today so you can make an amorous escape this weekend. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Being too critical can put you at odds with others, but the mood quickly shifts. The enticement of pleasant social outings may act as a carrot, so be at your best at work and at play to receive your reward. AQ UARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The stars are aligning so that you may have opportunities for exciting romantic adventures over the next several days. New friends could be made and lovers could become more affectionate. Tighten bonds. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): The day might begin under a dark cloud of responsibility, but this quickly dissipates, and you can attain your goals easily. Obstacles evaporate in the path of concentrated effort, which brings you success. IF SEPTEMBER 23 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: You have likely heard the saying that opportunity only knocks once, so listen closely the next several weeks. Grab whatever lucky breaks come your way, as the blessings showered on you can light up your future and enrich you, both materially and spiritually. Those who are not good for you fade into the background. Put plans into motion to improve your life, and security will begin to manifest. Look forward to increased popularity and perhaps even a special new love before the end of March. ACES ON BRIDGE /BOBBY WOLFF Sometimes a deal will look too easy; that is the time to be especially vigilant and to plan for breakers ahead. In six hearts here, you may count 12 top tricks — but what if hearts do not behave? When the diamond queen is led, it suggests length, not shortage. So win the diamond king in dummy, then take care to lead to the heart ace and then back to the heart king. The 4-1 split is a problem, but it need not be an insuperable one. You next lead a diamond from the table, and East must discard. (If he ruffs in, it collapses your trump loser and diamond loser into one trick.) When East ducks, it lets you win the diamond ace, then cash dummy’s spade ace and king (pitching your diamond loser) and ruff a spade. Now the club king and ace permit you to lead another spade from dummy to score yet another small trump. In the three-card ending, you have the Q-10 of hearts left and a losing club, which you now lead, ensuring that you can collect the last two tricks, whichever defender takes this trick. Note that the situation concerning dummy’s entries requires you to win the second trump in dummy and not in hand. If you cash the king of trumps and then the ace, the entry position to dummy will not allow you to reduce your trumps often enough for the endplay to succeed.
