A sure trick may be sacrificed al the card table for a number of rea sons. The sacrifice of a trick foi the sake of security is not at all uncommon. In fact, it is the bash of most safety plays. Again a trick may be sacrificed to kill the enemy's entry to a long suit, as where a defender willingly places upon the altar the king of a suit in which he could surely take a trick, only for the purpose of driving out an ace early in the play. There arr other reasons. But the occasion when a declarer deliberately sacri fices a trick for the sake of camou flage is much more a rarity. South became declarer at a con tract of three no-trump. His rebid of two no-trump without a sure heart stopper was somewhat irregu lar, but what other bid was avail able to him? It is just one of those hands that does not fall into a dis tinct category and that bid should be chosen which most nearly de scribes the character of the hand and is subject to the least objection. So little as the ten of hearts in dummy will stop the suit, and, since no better bid suggests itself, two no trump is probably the appropriate procedure. The five of spades was opened and East put up the ten. Declarer paused for a moment to survey the situation. If the club finesse suc ceeded there were tricks to burn. But if it failed, West, in spite of any holding he might have, would be compelled to shift to the wide open heart suit, since he would realize the futility of continuing the attack in spades in which the de clarer held three stoppers. In order to provide West with an inducement to continue the suit he had opened, declarer won with the king instead of the jack. This play naturally made it appear that East held the jack, and, when the club finesse failed, West, reading his partner for the jack of spades, and trusting to the king of hearts for a reason ably quick entry, continued the suit he had opened. Declarer won with the jack and ran off 11 tricks. So that the trick he had offered up as a sacrifice came right back to him, with interest. Tomorrow's Problem.

Dour, a Scottish word from the Latin durus, “hard; rough; strong; obstinate,” is an adjective meaning “sour or sullen; stern; severe: in flexible.” Until recently the dictionaries recognized only one pronunciation for dour, rhyming it with boor, moor, spoor. That pronunciation ap pears to prevail in England and Scotland. In Standard American speech, ! however, the word dour rhymes ' with flour, hour, scour, as if it were i spelled “dowr.” The dowr pronunciation now ap pears in most of the late-edition dictionaries. It should be given the first-choice listing. Recommended pronunciation: dow’r: Domatologist is pronounced: DOE-muh-TOL-uh-jist. It means f. "one versed in the science of keep ing a house.” The word is formed from domato, "house,” plus -logist, "one specializing or versed in.” Diva is an Italian loan word from the Latin diva, “a goddess; be longing to the divinity,” from divus, “divine.” In musical language a diva is a distinguished woman sing er; a prima donna. In English diva is pronounced: DEE-vuh. “DEE-troyt” for Detroit, is as dia lectal as "HO-tel, PO-lice, AD-mit.” Detroit is situated on the narrow strait which passes from Lake St. Clair to Lake Erie. Detroit is French for strait. The French pro nunciation is day-TRWA. The American pronunciation is: di TROYT. Heard on a radio commentation: “His reply to the Russians’ proposal was bitterly duh-RIZ-ive.” The word derisive, “expressing scorn or contemptuous ridicule,” was used correctly. But the pronunciation has no sanction. It should be: di RY-sive, the second syllable rhym ing with by, my. On the other hand, the word de rision is correctly pronounced with the short “i” sound in the second syllable, as in vision, thus: di RIZH-un. The traditional American pro nunciation of depot is: DEE-poe. During World War II the British pronunciation DEH-poe was more or less current in American military parlance. The pronunciation “DAY-poe” is pseudo-French. The correct French word is depot, pronounced: day POE.
