� � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � �������������������������� ������������������������ � �������������������������� ��� Marmaduke ® By Brad Anderson HOROSCOPE /JERALDINE SAUNDERS ARIES (March 21-April 19): An undercurrent of edginess may tempt you to take actions that you might regret later. In business, be patient and abide by the rules, as restrictive conditions will change soon. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): What’s that quote about paying unto Caesar what is due to Caesar? To e the line on the career front, but keep one foot in the door where new relationships are involved. Although friendships made now may not last long, they can provide you with valuable ideas. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You may watch from the sidelines as push comes to shove. Using common sense and tact will prevent you from becoming embroiled in arguments. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Be practical and strive for harmony if a judgmental atmosphere threatens to place you in an unpleasant situation. Obsessing over the past can only lead people down a dismal road. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Remember that people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. The pendulum is likely to swing in the opposite direction in the next several days, so avoid making uncompromising business decisions. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Solid financial strides can be made before the month is out, but today is not the time to put your ideas into motion. Listen to the voice of authority and shoulder responsibilities to gain approval, sparse though it may be. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t neglect exacting requirements at the workplace or ignore the boss. Once work is completed you will be free to play. Your charm and personal magnetism can draw others toward you indiscriminately, so be prepared to pick and choose from a bevy of admirers. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): A fixation on policy and convention can cause some tense moments and a frosty reception from others. Be open-minded and delight in those who arrive on your doorstep from vastly different backgrounds. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don’t give in to selfish desires or follow bad examples. When you stick to your own personal philosophy and perform acts of generosity, the universe is likely to assist you in mysterious ways. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Adhering to policy might provide approval from those on high, but could demonstrate inherent flaws in the system, as well. Be on the lookout for traditional activities that break down in practice. It may be time to overhaul stale methods. AQ UARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The world is full of contradictions this week. Heavy-handed individuals may come down hard on suspected infractions of the rules, but remember that rules are made to be broken. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): If the world seems harsh and cruel today, escape to an oasis of love built for two. You and a trusted partner have your own support system in place that can instantly buoy your spirits with a quick phone call or a tender e-mail message. IF NOVEMBER 23 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: You may be holding your breath and waiting for the other shoe to drop, but dramatic changes are in the past. You can be confident that major upsets will not topple the plans you will put in motion at the end of this month. Strive for long-term security and serenity in the year ahead and you will get your birthday wish. Your charisma hits a high point in March and July, so prepare for increased popularity and a plethora of happy relationships in 2005. ACES ON BRIDGE /BOBBY WOLFF On this deal from a pairs game at the New Orleans Nationals last November, Rose Meltzer as South found a nice play for most of the matchpoints. She was declaring three spades, after rejecting a game invitation. On a diamond lead to East’s ace and the club-queen shift, followed by a club to West’s ace and a club to East’s king, Rose ruffed and drew two rounds of trumps. When West discarded on the second trump, Rose could infer that West had started life with one spade, five diamonds, and therefore, from the earlier opening bid and negative double, four hearts and three clubs. Since West had doubled one spade, he could have one or both of the king and jack of hearts, but either way East was marked with a singleton. Whatever the lie of the cards though, Rose seemed to have the bases covered when she ran the heart queen from her hand. Even if this lost to a singleton king in East’s hand, declarer would still have been in position to take the rest of the tricks. In any event, if that was the lie of the cards, whatever line she had followed in hearts would have led to her losing a heart trick. As it was, though, West did his best by ducking his heart king, but when the heart jack put in an appearance, Rose could draw the last trump and repeat the finesse in hearts for an overtrick.
