If the finesse won. South would have 10 sure tricks; if it lost, he planned to discard a club on dummy's ace of hearts. As it happened, the finesse lost.

"That was a poor the dummy remarked the. hand was finished., have to; be crazy, to finesse with a South' did make a crazy play, but his singleton heart had nothing to do with it. If South had three very small clubs, the heart finesse at the first trick would be the cor- rect play. A finesse succeeds about half of the time, and South has no other reason- able play for the contract if his v clubs are worthless. Half a loaf is better than none. Strong Clubs Declarer's strong clubs change the situation. He should take the ace of hearts, draw trumps, and lead the jack of clubs for a finesse. If the finesse loses to the queen of clubs, South can later lead the 10 of clubs for a second fi- nesse. South can keep the club loss down to one trick if West has the king of clubs, the queen of clubs, or both. He loses two club tricks only if East has both the king and queen. The odds arc 3 to 1 in declarer's favor. To put it another way, South will succeed three- quar'ers of the time if he tries two club finesses. Just stick to Poor Alfred to get rich: Three-quarters of a loaf is better than half. Daily Question Partner opens the bidding with one spade, and the next player passes. You hold: 10 5, J 8 4 3, 9 5, 6 2. What do you say? Answer: Bid one no trump. The hand isn't strong enough for a-response of two hearts, and the spades aren't good enough for a raise to two spades. The response of one no trurnp is the only remain- ing possibility.

Action came immediately after the committee listened to an impassioned plea in favor of the fence by Laymon Wonser. Why Not Parks? The Appleton Golf associa- tion leader said he could stand the damage to the course by vandals and the de- bris which school children and others scatter over it, but he couldn't stand by and let chil- dren be hurt by flying balls because they were permitted to wander into playing areas. Aid. Kenneth Priebe told the committee he checked all re- sidents of street abutting the west boundary and found only two who favored the fence. Principal objection, he said, is that it will lower property values. "If you put the fence up here, why not around all the city parks, he asked. Wants To See Pictures One committeeman said he has pictures showing the fence around the rest of tl course is not maintained 1 course-employes. It collects litter and weeds are permit- ted to grow tall, he said. Wonser said he plays near- ly every day and never saw the fence in-the condition de- scribed. ment answered the call a.m. The residence is at on County Trunk 0 about six miles southwest of here.
