" Ghange your Suit."
dp.a yson— cojicnruM ■.
Having considered the advantages of this
system, I will now refer to its probable disad
vantages. I will suppose that my partner has
advanced so iar as to spesk of ihe present con
ventional "signal" <is "ChanEe your suit to
trumps." He sees me play this ••signal," and
he holds the losing trump, the better trump
being in the adversary's hand. Is my pir I
ner, if a reasonable player, likely to conclude
that I wish him to lead his losing trump, or
will he consider that my signal means
'•Change your suit"?
Again, supposing the two remaini-ij; trumps
are held, one by my partner, the other by me,
and 1 ask him to change his suit, is he likeiy
to think I wisn him to draw my trump? or
will he weet-pt my intimation that he is to
change to another 6uit? Mistakes might hap
pen by such means, but I do not think they
are likely— at least with an intelligent player,
when the "ask for trumps" has been
altered to "Change your suit" (to trumps).
Thus at the early t-tage of the play of a hand
I suggest that the playing: an unnecessarily
high card means "Chance your suit to
trumps." When, however, the trumps have
all been played, or when ouly oue or two re
main in, and when the play of an unncccessa
rily high card cannot mean 'Scad a trump."
then iheplHyof an unnecessarily nigh card
means "Change yoursua."
I feel convinced that if two players ac
quainted with this system plpyed with equal
cards against two omers unacquainted with
it, there would be a considerable percentage
\ in favor of the former ever the latter.
! This is not the introduction of a new
i conventional signal, But merely increasing
I the powers -if one at present in use, and which
j is now rather cramped and arbitrary in its
meaninie. Whenwhis. payers become accut
i tomed to say, "You asked me to change my
I suit to tru*nps," instead oi saying "You sig
nal, d for trumps" I think the system will be
f.iund practically useful. A player i.ow might
6hv: "You signaled for trumps when (Ley were
i all out. What was I to understand by that?"
I If he said, -'You asktd mo to change my suit
to trumps when they were all out," he would
not be likely to ask what to understand by
that, for trumps bein? out of the question
must be considered out of tht> demand, and
"Chunge your suit" can alor.e be the meaning
of the play of the unnecessarily high card.
When winning trumps «re led by your part
ner, the present conventional system of in
timating thut you hold four in the suit, by
playing the lowest but one, followed i >• tne
lowest, would still be folowed without any
1 chance oi confusion. The play of the unneces
sarily high trump would— if we kept to the let
ter of the principle — mean change your suit to
trumps, as the first meaning; as, however,
trumpa were being led, the piay of the un
necessarily high card in trumps could only
mean that the player held four trumps at least.
When a player is leading winning cards and
his partner indicates that he wishes the suit
changed, and when all the trumps are out,
the player would at once use his judgment as
to whether he should continue his suit or
change it. If the player held enough winning
cards in the suit to win the game out of his
own hand of course to change would not be
desirable, so thai a responsibility rests on the
player asking for a change «f suit as great as
now rests on the player "asking for trumps."
This responsibility, however, does not
diminish the value of the signal to "change
your suit." when trumps are out.
When a player holds two other euits besides
that which he is leading, and trumps being
out, the signal to change suit may leave him
iv doubt as to which of the other two suits to
lead. A careful aud observant player, how
ever, is not likely to make an error, and his
partner's signal mc&ui "change the suit," as

-her Ames' comments on the play:
This hand is one in which the long suit
system of leading the fourth best gains
| tricks. The short suit or "Hbwell Game"
would lead the 9 of hearts as the "lop oi noth
j ing," and his partner would have no clew to
I unblocking. North would be unable to bring
, in his last three' 'hearts and East and West
would make three diamonds, s
Trick 2— South begins a trump call.
Trick 3— South can count North's hearts and
j unblocks by throwing ihe jncK.
Trick 6 — East's cover is. perhaps question
| able, but it makes no difference. It is, how
i ever, sometimes well 10 cover to promote
i medium cards in partner's hand. Thus, if
West had had another guard to his ten
spades it would be the master card on third
[ round. By his unblocking play South can put
, his partner in in hearls and enable him to
bring in his suit.
