His distribution should provide enough potential to provide a play for 10 tricks. West opened the ten of spades, North played the six ind East put up the king ID win the trick. He resisted the temptation to play the ace and another heart, and in- stead, he returned a small heart which put West in again with Uie king. Harl he shifted to either minor suit, it would virtually have assured de- clarer's eventual defeat on the deal, because Ihc latter would have been deprived of anrl ill prospects for rticiriiisiriii his own distribution from East. In fact, had West opened the king of hearts a reasonable choice from the bidding, 11 would have greatly simplified Ihc de- fense. West actually chose to ejit with another spade to dummy's ace when he was in with the king of The bidding clearly marked East with the king of clubs and it appears that declarer must lose one spade, two hearts and one club, but the latter was net inclined to give up without a struggle and he proceeded to play quickly and with complete assurance. The ace of clubs was cashed on which East fol- lowed with the sLr, South the deuce and West the three. Now a small club was led. From East's point of view, it appeared that his opponent started with a singleton club and was trying to reenler his hand via a ruff in order lo trump a small spade with the queen of hearts. To put up the king of clubs might be fatal if it established North's queen for a discard. East chose lo follow suit with the ten of and South covered with the jack which held the trick. A small spade was ruffed with the queen of hearts and declarer's only other loser on the deal was the ace of hearts which he conceded and claimed his co.ntract. West was still in position to help East alter he led second round of spades. If, when the ace of clubs is cashed, West follows with the four, beginning an echo, it will reveal thai the three of clubs is missing. Now when the second club is played, East will be aware that the three of clubs is outstanding. If West has started a high- low, this U a conventional defensive signal to show an even number of cards in the suit two or four. In any case, it is safe for East to out up the klnn of clubs because he can be sure that South will follow suit. With the king of clubs in lo complete the defensive book, East becomes assured of defeating the contract with the see of trumps. naturally in an ideal society. He iLtlined rules o[ proper conduct for everyone in the feu- dal system of his day. The king- pin of his ideal society an honest ruler who strictly obey- ed a code of fairness with kind- ly courtesy toward all. Such a one would inspire loyalty and set an example for all his sub- jects. One governor was hall convinced and made Confucius Minister of Crime. The people accepted his ideas, sang songs about him and crime, they say, disappeared from the scene. Bui no governor fully ac'-eplec' his social program and most feudal rulers saw it as a threat to their selfish priv- ileges. His simple Iheme was com- mon courtesy at all levels of so- ciety Uie honest-to-goodness courtesy that abides deep down in every human heart. Confu- cius a saying for those in doubt about what to do. What you do not like done lo you, do not do unto others. Centuries later, this was made more posi- tive. "Do unto others as you would have them unto you" became our Golden Rule. The secret of this ideal lies in treat- ing oneself ar.d everybody else with equal fairness. The old chapter of feudal his- tory is closed. But certainly the rewards of kindly oourtesy still prevail. You can test the old magic for yourself. Notice when you act with polite con- sideration h a I others tend lo do likewise. The gentle magic seems to be catching. Some- times it even works when oth- ers ar acting like backward barbarians. Imagine what wotiH happen if this courtesy infeclci' everybody in our so- ciety. Nobody could feel ne- glected or unwanted. Nobody could commit a crime against himself or against anyone else, ft's too bad lhat China or some other society never gave n fair test Ui the Confucian recipe for human happiness.

(Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1971) New reading machine developed DETROIT (AP) An elec- tronics engineer has developed a machine lhat enables persons who are nearly blind to read even the small, agate print in newspapers. The machine, called an electronic magnifier, was in- vented by Richard Armil. Doc- tors at Sinai Hospital helped in its development. The magnifier consists of a television monitor, a camera with a 20om lens and a high intensity light. It is used on a closed circuit television system. Printed material put under the lens can be magnified 20 times and seen on a television screen. The magnifiers arc furnished on a prescription basis. "We want to be sure a person will have some success with the magnifier, said Dr. Morris Minl2 of Sinai Hospital's low vi- sion clinic. "A person must have a desire to use the ma- chine. He must understand the magnifier is not a solution to all of lu's problems." Developers arc confident the 1 cost of building the machine will go down as sales volume ItXl WOULPN T THINK WERE 60 SWT IF FEU. DOWN, SKINNED WIIR KNEES! rUMBLEWEEOS-By TOM K. RYAN SHERIFF!
