Instead of being content to de
fend card by card and trick byj
trick, look for clues to declarer’s]
overall plan of action—and then
try to thwart that plan.
Today’s hand is a simple il
lustration of this principle. When
Mrs. Fusty opened the bidding,
Mr. Dale decided to play for
game—or something better. And
when Miss Brash elected to get
into the act, the possibility of
“something better’’ became
brighter.
He redoubled and Mr. Abel
eame in with a bid of two clubs,
a call which was justified be
cause it took up no bidding space.
Mr. Dale doubled two clubs
and Mrs. Fusty let it stand; 500
points was the reward, but only
because Mrs. Fusty made a good
diagnosis of declarer’s plan.
She got off to the queen-of
hearts opening and Mr. Abel let
that card win. Here Mrs. Fusty
paused to consider how Mr. Abel
was planning to play the hand
to win the maximum possible
number of tricks.
Apparently he held more than
one heart or he would have won
the first trick with dummy’s acd.
It appeared that he wanted the
defenders to win their side-suit
tricks until he could set up a
cross-ruffing situation. If that
were true, then the lead he
wanted least was a trump lead.
On this reasoning Mrs. Fusty
led the king of trumps at trick
two. Looking very sad, Mr. Abel
won with dummy’s ace and re
turned the jack of spades. Mr.
Dale put up the king, but Mrs.
Fusty overtook with the ace and
led another club.
Dummy’s jack was trapped
and Mr. Dale cashed the 10 and
thequeen. After that Mr. Abel
was held to three trump tricks
and the two red aces for down
three.
Check on the number of tricks
he could have won if Mrs. Fusty
had been stolidly determined to
win her tricks fast by playing the
ace and another spade beginning
at trick two.

FAMOUS FABLES
BY E. E. EDGAR
SOBRlETY—Although co
median W. C. Fields took his
liquor in formidable doses,
he was rarely under the
weather.
One night, after a per
formance, he and several
friends went to a nearby
bar and had quite a number
of drinks. About 4 in the
morning. Fields decided to
go home. As he was about
to leave, one of his com
panions remarked:
“How can you drink so
much and still be sober?
What's the secret?”
“It’s very simple,” said
Fields, yawning, “I make it
a rule never to take a drink
between 5 in the morning
and noon.”
GRACE—Wilhelm de
Munthe Morgenstierne, Nor
wegian Ambassador to the
United States, held the rank
of Minister for many years.
Then, during World War 11,
he was elevated to his pres
ent station.
“Are you treated any dif
ferently. now that you are
an Ambassador?” he was
asked, shortly after he as
sumed his new title.
“In one respect, yes,” he
replied. “Now, when I at
tend a dinner, I can eat my
meal in peace. When I was
the Minister, I was usually
asked to say grace.”

A WORD TO THE WISE
El Cerrito: Will you please dis
cuss the pronunciation of the
word divan? Why do we hear
two pronunciations?—J. P. McG.
Answer: There are two kinds
of divans: l. A kind of couch,
1 pronounced: DY-van. 2. An
Oriental council, pronounced:
di-Van.
Whittier: In our organization
it is about time for election of
delegates and alternates. Please
give the pronunciation of the
noun alternate. Bome of our
i clubwomen insist that Webster'g
and other dictionaries prefer the c
accent on the second syllable, j
What do you say?—Mrs. E. J. M. j
Answer: The second-syllable
, accent for the noun is ob
solescent. The standard Ameri
can pronunciation is: AWL-ter
nit. The noun is sometimes :
, heard with the first syllable
rhyming with pal. as, AL-ter-nit, j
: but this is passing out of good
, usage.
