Marion Courts By Oswald James Jacoby The pattern of hands in 'Sherlock Holmes-Bridge De- tective' shows Holmes making contracts by brilliant play and the opponents being set at con- tracts they could and really should make. The unfortunate declarer is then told by Holmes how he could have made his contract. Invariably, it is good bridge but somehow or other we don't see the great detective winning any popularity contests.

Your partner's clubs will run at notrump. Nothing can be ruffed in notrump. Something could be ruffed at a club contract. TODAY'S QUESTION Instead of bidding four clubs your partner has bid two notrump over your two spades. You bid three hearts and he jumps to four spades. What do you do now'.' Answer Tomorrow Holmes led the ace of clubs and continued with the 10. South ruffed in dummy. East overruffed and led back a trump. Poor South cashed his ace of hearts, led his last club and watched East overruff again. East had to lead back a diamond. South finessed his queen but still had to go down one trick. Holmes pointed out that South could have made his contract by letting Holmes win three club tricks while dis- carding two diamonds from dummy. However, Holmes wasn't quite as pontifical as he might have been. He failed to point out that South had a second chance at trick four. He could have discarded a diamond from dummy right then and there and still made the game. Cases heard Monday in Marion magistrate's court were: Speeding David A. Mulholland, 3742 G avenue XE.
