Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - November 29, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa WIN AT BRIDGE By Oswald James Jacoby We aren't going to try to set- tle the argument about whether North or South bid too much on the way to six hearts. Suffice to say that with West sticking in a club overcall, the bid figured to be a loser; West opened the jack of spades and East made the mistake of rising with the king. There was little purpose in that NOKTII l 7632 AKQ72 WEST EAST 10 J8654 SOUTH AQ9 V AKJ1096 493 North-South vulnerable West North East South Pass 4V is 5V Pass CV Pass Pass Pass Opening lead play. His partner had not un- derled the ace. If East had hung on to the king, South would have wound up one trick short of his slam. South grabbed that king with his ace and noted that his queen-nine were now es- tablished as the top tenacc in that suit. He proceeded to run off all six trumps while discarding two spades, a club and a diamond from dummy. Then he cashed dummy's three top diamonds to discard his own eight of clubs. South was now left with the queen-nine of spades and king of clubs. West in back of him decided to hang on to two spades and a club. Now South led dummy's club. West won the trick and had to lead a spade right into South's tenace. The bidding lias been: 29 West North East South Dble. Pass 1 N.T. Pass You, South, hold: 443 VAQ1086 What do you do now? three notrump. Your partner is showing cards dial in- clude at least one spade stopper. Bid the game where the lead will come up to him. TODAY'S QUESTION Instead of bidding one notrump your partner has jumped to two notrump after your double. What do you do now? Indiana Sighting Of Kangaroo RENSSELAER, Ind.

Hentschel said he spotted the animal on a street near his home not far from the college campus. When last seen, the kangaroo was hopping across a cornfield.
