Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - June 12, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 4A IV Cedar Rapids Guettt: Wed.. JIM 12, 1S74 WIN AT BRIDGE By Oswald It James Some hands are fun for rubber bridge players, but a real headache at match points. South wins the first heart trick with his queen. A rubber bridge player counts nine cer- tain tricks and leads either a club or a diamond. If he goes after the clubs he will wind up with 11 tricks since West, who holds the club ace, won't be able to clear his hearts and EAST 4 9874 NORTH 4KQ3 A63 KJ962 WEST J652 VK9742 53 4A762 SOUTH (D) 4 A 10 Q105 i K Q10 9 8 North-South vulnerable West North East South >ass 24 pass 2 N.T. 'ass 3 N.T. Pass Pass Opening lead-T 4 there will be time for South to set up diamonds also. If he at- tacks diamonds East will win the trick and lead his eight of hearts, whereupon South will have to settle for his contract without any overtricks at all. How would an expert play this hand in match point duplicate? He would attack diamonds first, but he would do so by playing a spade to dummy at trick two and then leading dummy's jack of diamonds. If East is smart enough to play the ace it is too bad, but the chances are that East will duck quickly. Then expert South will play the king! The reason for this play is to make sure about the location of the diamond ace. If West held the ace he might let the jack hold, but he could never fail to put it on the king. Then, having located the diamond ace, expert South would go after clubs and wind up with 11 tricks and a good duplicate score. The bidding has been: North East Double Pass Pass Pass West 12 South You, South, hold: 654 What do you do now? Pass. Your partner doesn't have much of a double and you should let your opponent strug- gle at his spade contract. TODAY'S QUESTION Instead of passing, East has bid two spades over your partner's double. What do you do now? Answer Tomorrow Body of Woman 'Window on Past' ST. LAWRENCE ISLAND, Alaska (AP) University of Alaska researchers say the body of a woman dead for years has been found on St. Lawrence island and that the discovery provides a "window on the past." The body was found a year ago by Eskimo hunters near Kelegak Point on the island in the Bering sea. It was buried in artificial frost to save it for scientists. Anthropologist George Smith says the woman was still recognizable when flown to the university in Fairbanks. Her brown, leathery skin was still intact, and short, black hair still on her head. Dating of the remains was done by measur- ing the levels of radiocarbon in the tissue. Discovers 'Woodburyi' Plants SAN JUAN, P. R. (UPI) Ecologist Roy Woodbury, an adviser to the commonwealth department of natural re- sources, announced he has dis- covered two previously un known plants, one of the orchid family and the other of the tomato family. The two plants have been named Lepanthus Woodburyi and Solarium Woodburyi. ON THIS DATE In 1943, the Trans-Canadian highway was opened to traffic.
