THE EVENING STAR Washington D C WUUIUKUIII 1/ v/ WEDNESDAY, AFKIL 13, IDM CONTRACT BRIDGE BT EASLEY BLACKWOOD If you are wondering why Mr. Muzzy didn’t make an overcall in spades on this hand, here is the reason: He had barred him self from the bidding for one roynd. South dealer. Neither side vulnerable.

The re sult was that when the other players were just picking up their hands he had his cards all sorted. “Pass.” he said suddenly. Mr. Champion drummed his fingers on the table anil looked disgusted. Mr. Judge, who fancies himself as the official arbiter of the game, went into action. Whipping out his book of rules, he announced that Mr. Muzzy, having passed out of turn (when it was the turn of his right-hand opponent), was barred when it was next his turn to call. So the auction reverted to the proper player. Mr. Dale, and he bid one heart. Mr. Muzzy had to pass. Mr. Abel raised to two hearts and Mr. Champion passed. Now Mr. Dale wondered where all the spades were. He guessed that a lot of them were on his left and with the idea of keep ing Mr. Muzzy out of the auc tion entirely he stretched a lit tle and jumped to four hearts. This was a little too steep for Mr. Muzzy and he decided to pass. Mr. Dale made his contract by good play, Mr. Muzzy won the first trick with the king of spades, then made his best shift —the deuce of diamonds. This looked like a fourth highest lead to Mr. Dale. If so, then Mr Champion had only two diamonds. A diamond from the closed hand could be dis carded on dummy’s fourth club after the ace of that suit was knocked out. Hoping the ace of clubs was in Mr. Champion’s hand, Mr Dale ducked the sec ond trick, permitting Mr. Cham pion to win with the king of diamonds. He won the diamond return with the ace. picked up the trumps and led the king of clubs. Mr. Champion won that, but had no diamond to cash and no way to reach his partner’s hand. The defense had taken all the tricks they were going to get. Mr. Champion remarked sour ly that four spades could have been made on the East-West cards—even with Muzzy play ing it. (Copvright, 1955 General Feature! Corn ! FAMOUS FABLES BY E. E. EDGAR EMISSARY—During the years he was manager of the Phila delphia Athletics, Connie Mack was never thrown out of a ball game by an umpire. Mack was not submissive. Far from it. He would make his point in every disputed play. It was just that be- realized the futility of mouth-to-mouth bickering with the men in blue. Mack tired another tack. He would send his son Earle to bicker for him. Earle would preface every remark with: “Dad says ” This was a frustrating experi ence for an umpire, who could not bounce Connie, who had said nothing, nor Earle, who was merely quoting him. SHORT—One day, as he was leaving his office, theatrical pro ducer Jed Harris was stopped by a stranger. “Hello, Mr. Hughes,” greeted the latter. "I haven’t seen you in a long time!" * Harris eyed the man blankly. “Oh. I beg your pardon.” stam mered the other. “I thought you were Howard Hughes. On sec ond thought, however, you seem a little shorter.” “Uh-huh.” agreed Harris, “by about 100 million dollars!” WORD GAME Find 34 or more words in BICKERING, meaning, “wrangling, disputing.’ Average is 30: time limit, 2! minutes.

A WORD TO THE WISE l Akron: I have been told that 1 the word tortoise should be pro nounced “TAWR-toyz." What’s* the good word?—R. Answer: It’s nonsense. Pro- i nounce tortoise as TAWR-tiss or TAWR-tuss. Louisville: My music teacher makes us pronounce Jesus as “JEE-sooss." My English teach er says it should be “JEE-zuss.” Who is right?—Pupil. Answer: Your English teacher, of course. Your music teacher is a little confused. The “oo” sound is heard only when the 1 1 poetical form "Jesu” is used: it's pronounced: JEE-soo. * Corpus Christi: Will you please ! list in your column your choice ;of the abridged dictionaries?— T. H. I Answer: Sorry; it is against the policy of this column to rec ommend any one dictionary. To do so would create the impres sion that the column is sub sidized, which is not the case. There are several good diction aries on the market, but I pre fer to remain noncommittal. 1 Wichita Falls: Are my ears going bad, or do I hear—(the MC of a popular network pro gram) pronounce the name Tuesday as "Chewsday”? C. C. S I Answer: There Is nothing wrong with your hearing —he does say “Chewsday,” but he shouldn’t It’s an absurd affec tation. Syracuse: Is it true that there are two verbs meaning “to bid”? —D. J. Answer: Yes; the verb "to bid” has two meanings: (1) To order, direct, command, to utter BY MRS. FRANK COLBY ■ as a wish; (2) to make a bid in card playing. The first has these tenses: Present, bid: pest, bade (pro ’ nounced “bed”); past participle, bidden. The second has the same form I in all three tenses, as, I bid; ; I did bid; I have bid. ’ (Distributed by McNauaht Syndicate. Inc.) ' Biggest Shipping Job I CHICAGO.
