When West overcalled with two hearts and North [reely rebid three diamonds, South was unwilling to leava nnythinn further to srni now he junped to four tpadrj. West opened the king o{ hearts erd continued with the queen as everyone fol- lowed suit. The switch to the of diRmonds arrf the ace was played from dimmy. The 01 spades was led flfid when East followed with Utc ome, deciaror chose to forego the finesse In favor at caching the ace end king. East showed out on the sec- ond round, so South contin- ued with the jack which dis- lodged West's queen. The lat- ter exiled with a club to loci bis opponent in dummy. South attempted to rcentcr harid by ruffing a dia- mond with a .small tnimp, but West overruled with the eight to score lie setting trick. If declarer had trumped with the ten of spades, it would have estab- lished West's eight as the master Inunp, Uie final result may appear lo be a natural one. Had South con- sidered Ihe possible conse- quences of e four-one dfvf. In spades, however, he could have taken precautions to prevent the opposition from pinning him in tho Worth hand. All that Is required it for declarer lo cash the ace of clubs at trick Now when a spade is led to tha ace and the Ving and jack aro continued, South can salely discard the king and queen of clubs from dummy as the Jacfc and ten In hit hand are equal; in rank and control the suit just as effectively. The advantage of Ihl.i unblocking maneuver- Is that when Weal goes ia with the queen til spades, whether ho exits with a heart or a club, declarer can win the return In hU hand and immediately draw tho last trump with the lea of I dawn of the earth's early his- lory. The oldest known rocks indicate that the infant planet was formed sometime between four billion and live billion years ago. Most cxperls sus- pect that it condensed and sol- idified from whirling gases. However, Ihe newborn earth did not resemble the luxurious world we know today. It was seething hot and completely lifeless. Apparently, at first even the surface was a of boiling lava and moHen mater- ials. The young planet was shrouded In a pea soup atmo- sphere of dense gases. Some scientists suspect that the in- fant earth took shape before Ihe sun ignited. If this is so, Ihe surface was lit by molten minerals, but no sunshine pierced through the midnight clouds. The evidence suggests that the earth changed rather quick- ly. In a few million years, tho scelhing surface formed a solid crust. Water anrl a vast variety of other molecules formed in ar.d hclow Ihe crust. And an enormous amount of moisture was suspended in the almo- sphere. At some unknown time, the heavy clouds shed the first sho vers. But the newly formed surface was slill hot and Ihe falling raindrops immediately frizzled inlo steam. N'o one knows how long tho rain fell and returned lo the steamy atmosphere. But Ihe surface rocks gradually cooler. As last the rain could land without boiling back into LI air. 'Ihe evidence suggests that f ti i s was a period ol drenching deluges. Thc rain ran clown the barren, rocky slopes and gathered in puddles. Through Ihc the gushing water cut channels and emptied Into huge hollow basins in the earth's crust. Aflcr several mil. lion years, the super rainy sea son subsided. The skies cleared and the big crustal basins held (he earth's first oceans.
