One of the many developments for the better in modern play is that defenders think more carefully about what card to lead during the play.
Twenty-five years ago South would have had no trouble making his four spade contract against almost any defending players. He would win the heart lead with dummy’s ace; draw trumps and Jose the diamond finesse.
Some East players would lead back partner's suit. After that friendly play South would be able to discard two of his clubs on dummy’s good diamonds and score an overtrick.

The local unemployment rate is still behind last year’s rate of 2.5 percent when 2.000 workers were unemployed, the report
The national unemployment Irate was 4.7 percent in No-I vember.
Manufacturing of food and kindred products, construction, agricultural and retail trade will see declining employment because of seasonal trends, the commission predicted.
Other industries in the area are expected to remain stable during the next three month period.
Over the last year, 2.60(1 workers were added to the local employment ranks with manufacturing of machinery showing the largest increase since November of last year.
All manufacturing industries’! average weekly earnings in-; creased from $198.19 to $199.22 from October to November, but average hourly earnings remained the same as the average weekly hours had shown a .2 hour increase.

4K J65?2 4AQ10654K43 What do you do now?
A — Bid three notrump. In npite of the fact that your partner appears to be very weak you do want to be in Kame. This bid allows him to bid four hearts if he w ishes to do so.
TODAY’S QUESTION Instead of bidding three hearts your partner jumps to four hearts over your two spades. What do you do now ?
A better East player would see the need for a club shift and would automatically lead back the three spot. Fourth best was standard then; it is still standard now, but with exceptions.
This hand represents one of the exceptions.
East can see that his side needs to get three fast tricks to beat the four spade contract. If his partner holds ace-queen-10 of clubs, the jack lead is essential so that East can hold the lead and continue the suit. It doesn’t appear likely, but it is possible. East has nothing to lose by leading the jack and any modern expert will make that play.
