THE EVENING STAR Washington. D C. SATtSDAT. AFKIL 1«. IMS CONTRACT BRIDGE BY EASLEY BLACKWOOD Continuing our discussion of penalties for infractions of the rules, the bidding of today's; hand developed into a fantastic situation. North dealer.

His part ner's three-heart bid was only a preference, given after two pre vious chances to help hearts had been passed up. Also; partner had shown no in clination to get into no-trump I and surely Mr. Dale’s own hand was not suited for no-trump play. Still Mr. Dale had a pretty good hand and he decided to make one more try in the belief that if game were possible it must be in spades. After the bidding was appar ently completed. Mr. Muzzy asked for a review. There had been too many bids for him to remember. Mr. Dale carefully went over It for him and Mr. Muzzy went into a study. Every one thought he was trying to select a card to lead. But they were wrong. "I double.” he said suddenly. Immediately there was a call for Mr. Judge, the self-appointed expert on the laws. He referred to law No. 20 and told the players that Mr. Muzzy's double, made after the auction was closed, was canceled. He also said that when it was first Mr. Champion’s turn to lead, Mr. Abel could either re quire or forbid the lead of a specified suit. Mr. Champion sat through this In grim and martyred silence. He glanced nervously around the room as if searching for some blunt instrument. Mr. Muzzy led his singleton heart and dummy’s ace won. The five of clubs was led and Mr. Champion went in with the ace. Unquestionably he would have led back a heart and Mr. Muzzy j would have got his five of spades home for a trick. Later the ace! and queen of spades would have completed the set. But Mr. Abel exercised his right and required Mr. Champion to lead a club at trick three. This was ruffed in dummy and a low diamond led to the queen in the closed hand. The last club was now led and ruffed. Next dummy’s ace of diamonds was cashed and followed with the king. Mr. Champion ruffed but Mr. Abel overruffed. The king of spades lost to the ace. j - Mr. Abel ruffed the club return ; and had Just enough trumps left to drive out Muzzy’s queen, ruff another club return, pick up the last trump and make four spades on the nose.

A WORD TO THE WISE San Bernardino: Yesterday I heard a prominent speaker refer on a network broadcast to "cer tain unalienable rights.” I thought the correct word was “inalienable.”—B L. R. Answer: Both spellings are listed by the unabridged diction aries. It’s a matter of choice. However, "inalienable” is cus tomary, although the spelling in ■ the Declaration of Independence is “unalienable." The pronounci at.lons are: In-AIL-y’n-uh-b’l; un-AIL-y’n-uh-b'l. Louisville: Our speech class is divided on the proper pronun ciation of the word dictator. Should the accent fall on the first or second syllable?—o.B. W. Answer: It's a matter of choice. Both dik-TAY-ter and ; DIK-tay-ter have dictionary sanction. The late F. D. R. pre ferred dik-TAY-ter, and gave that pronunciation a certain vogue, but it is not heard as fre , quently today, according to my check of both lay and proses-! sional speakers. In standard American the prevailing pronun- I elation is: DIK-tay-ter. Elmira: Please define andj pronounce the phrase “noblesse 1 JM— I- ~r—ifisMnawßa BY MRS. FRANK COLBY oblige.”—B. W. Answer: It’s French for "no bility obligates.” By extension it implies that “persons of noble rank are obligated to behave nobly.” The English pronuncia tion is: noe-BLESS oh-BLEEZH. Rochester: What, please, is a | “speleologist”?—G. J. Answer: A speleologist refers ,to an expert in the study of i caves. The word is from the I Greek spelaion, meaning "cave,” ' and is pronounced: SPEE-lee- i | OL-uh-jlst. j (DWWSeteS hr gcNaaebl eradicate, 1 WORD GAME Find 40 or more words in PITCHFORK, meaning, "a long-handled fork for pitching hay.” Average is 41; j time limit, 35 minutes.
