The bidding:

Opening lead, five of spades.
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.

Take My Word for It
By Frank Colby
Some “D” Words to Watch.
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.
Sugar-Paper Mill Built
RIO DE JANEIRO.—A mill to
produce paper from sugar-cane
bagasse is planned by a Brazil
ian sugar factory. The mill is
expected to be in production in
1952 and to have a yearly ca-,
pacity of 5,000 tons. .
