� � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � �������������������������� ������������������������ � ������������������������ ��� Marmaduke ® By Brad Anderson HOROSCOPE /JERALDINE SAUNDERS ARIES (March 21-April 19): Make headway today and tomorrow on important projects before your energies lag. Seek unusual entertainments and fresh faces. It’s “out with the old and in with the new” where romantic yearnings are concerned. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Networking among your peers will earn you more points and eventually extra dollars. It is a good time to mingle in public and receive recognition for a job well done. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): A positive attitude coupled with a willingness to experiment can overcome obstacles. Matters that must be aired in public will receive positive feedback now. CANCER (June 21-July 22): The upbeat mood is a perfect backdrop for meetings or interviews. Strangers could become instant bosom buddies under these cosmic conditions. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): It is a fairly good time to launch new projects that require the approval of the public or to deal with computers or the Internet. The world is altruistic and tolerant of unusual opinions. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t put off until tomorrow anything that can be done today. Optimism is your best ally if there are discussions or meetings to attend. Be forthright about asking for what you want — and if it is possible, others will try to accommodate your needs. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Getting out and about and mingling with others will help raise both your prestige and your spirits. Launch new programs that depend upon the whims of the public, as they will have the benefit of added sparkle and charisma. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Sticking to tradition or resisting change will trip you up under these celestial conditions. Win by adopting new methods and innovative ideas. Let your creativity have free rein and you should win applause. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You can achieve your objectives by being sensitive to creative ideas and remaining optimistic. Grab opportunities as they fly by. Sudden changes in plans will turn out to be fortunate in the long run. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): If you are stumped for an answer check the Internet or use a famous person as a sterling example. Fight the tendency to cling to the past. Rugged individuals who follow the latest fads make the best impression today . AQ UARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Plug in that new computer today or tackle highly technical gadgets. It is easy to intuitively dive into new situations and swim away without a scratch. Implement changes successfully under these stars. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t shy away from something just because it is new or different. The power belongs to those who shine with unique qualities and take the road less traveled. Start any new undertaking that depends upon computers or public acclaim today to get the upper hand. IF OCTOBER 25 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Opportunities to permanently improve your life can appear in the next several weeks — but to take full advantage of everything that might be handed to you on a silver platter, alterations may be required. Embrace changes that occur between now and Christmas because letting go of outworn ideas and people frees you to obtain your most heartfelt goals. You will be riding high on a crest of popularity now, but should avoid making promises or important plans next May and June when your charisma temporarily droops. ACES ON BRIDGE /BOBBY WOLFF This week we shall be marking the World Championships in Istanbul by looking at deals from the qualifying rounds of the World Championships eight years ago in Rhodes. In the ladies’ match between India and Canada, Dianna Gordon was sitting West and had to defend against four spades, having opened one heart in first seat. Put yourself in her position: you lead a top heart, and your partner shows you an odd number . Where will you go for honey? Dianna found the winning defense when she underled her club ace at trick two. Declarer had no reply to this; it did not matter which hand she won the trick in. She could do nothing but play a round of trumps, then exit with a second club. Gordon took this and played her second top heart. Declarer ruffed, but was forced to lead away from her diamond king at the end for down one. If Gordon had tried to cash a second heart at trick two, declarer would simply have ruffed, then drawn trumps and led the club king from her hand. Whether Gordon won this trick or the next club, declarer would have held her diamond losers to one, since West would have had to make a lead she would have regretted. Note the logic of Gordon’s play. If her partner had the top club or three small clubs, the play could not possibly cost. If, however, the actual distribution existed, this was the only way to disrupt declarer’s communications.
