It was played in an Internation- al Team Championship and the bidding is presented as i-. transpired at one table. opened the biddin v.'ilh one spade and his ner in the East position chose respond with cluus. It is not our practice to bid a new suit at the two level v.ith less than ten points- and in the preser. situation, it served not to provide South, iho eventu- al declarer vital information, but aho inhib- ited Kast ar.d from ever buying the hand. Had Ks.U offered an imme dialc to twa jpades, a slightly but not unreasonable action, his partner would surely have iKcn induced to offer strenu- ous competition on Ihe and bad vital competed all the way to five fhere would have been no way for North and South to prevent their opponent from winning eleven trkts. If West is permitted to ruff or not South covers with ths king, West can cash three heart tricks and discard the eight of diamonds from Ihe East hand. A diamond is ruffed with dummy's remain- ing trump and a club ruff puts Wist in to draw North's last spade. A diamond is con- ceded to the opposition and declarer claims the brlrr.ce for eleven tricks. As Ihe bidding .iiy transpired, after South came in with two diamonds, .West, competed once by showing his heart suit, but when the bidding got back to him-the opponents were in five dia- monds and further competi- tion appeared hazardous if partner had nothing but clubs. West opened the king of spades against South's game bid and an examination of all four hands by the reader will reveal that the hand is something of a double dum- my problem. If declarer plays the ace of spades and takes an immediate club fi- nesse, West will ruff the first and there is no way yjbSNjuently to tvoid Ibe loss of two heart tricks, even if South succeeds in estab- lishing one club discsrd for liinuelf. If declarer to the ace of diamonds at trick two ar.d then leads the six back lo the king to pull trumps before leading queen of clubs. East can pre- vent the establishment of that suit by merely declining to cover with the king, South must now come back to his hand with the ace of clubs and since the five of dia- monds is the only remaining entry to dummy and East till] retains the king of clubs as a North's suiti becomes a dead Declarer cannot avoid tha loss of three heart tricks and must go down lo defeat. Wrxn tie hand was played, declarer succeeded mus in his honor. Later il be- came known as SI. Elmo's fire. These flickering candies of blue, white and gold make a weird and wonderful sight. Oc- casionally they dance on air- plane wings, on ships and Iree- tops and sometimes among mountain peaks. They make their rare appearances during thunderstorm weather, usually in late fall or early winter. Ac- tually, St. Elmo's fire is some- what remotely related to light- ning. Both are electrical dis- charges between the earth and the atmosphere. The charges that spark Hie display are ions, formed when atoms and molecules lose some of their electrons. The wild tur- moil in a ttmndcrhead brushes electrons from gaseous atoms. This causes negative and posi- tive iosn to hhild up opposite charges in different parts of the cloud. When these charges reacli a certain peak, their electrical potential may be dis- charged in flahses of lightning. However, Ihe earth below builds up eletrical charges of its own. As a rule', it emits a mild negative field. However, this electrical potential usually is stronger in all and early win- ter. During the sunny season, it usually subsides, though it may he aroused by a rash of sun- spots. St. Elmo lights his eerie can- dles when tile electrical poten- tial between the earth and Ihe atmosphere is just right. Too great a differenlial would create scaring flashes ot light- ning. What is needed to solve the problem is a number of small brush discharges. And Hits is just what happens. A ghostly candelabra anpears at unexpected times and places, relieving the electrical tensions between the earth and the at- mosphere. Lightning, as we know, can strike almost anyv.lieie. though it does have a preference tor high points. Time and again it strikes the top of the Empire State Building, ft also is at- tracted to chimneys, steeples and tree tops. St. Elmo's fire tends to favor similar high points, though ils meek little brush discharges do no strike down! with fiery force. They merely flicker a while, then gently subside. One of the lightning's favorite j striking points is a mast on open water. St. Elmo's fire also favors boats, where it is more1 noticeable than it is on land. 1 This explains why sailors of the iMediferranean claimed it as their own. Sailing began in this inland sea and here those ghostly candles are most likely lo occur. Andy sends a World Book- Atlas lo Joel Gold, age 14, of Montreal, Quebec, for his uestion: How did the Canary Islands get their name? Words have a way of u an- dering from language tci lan- guage, often changing as they go. In this case, a wild dog was transformed into a singing bird and perhaps a few human whistles were added to the mir- acle. These lovely islands were known to a few early sailors who ventured outside the shel- tered Mediterranean into the stormy Atlantic. No doubt they admired the picturesque moun- tains and the fertile valleys, j But they were most impressed by the large wild dogs they found running around. Their word for dog was canis and the group of islands was named Canada. Much later, Canaria was modernized lo Canary Islands. Apparently bolder investigators ignored the fierce dogs, at least j I long enough to meet the swcei, singing birds lhat thronged in the mountains. Naturally these songsters of the Canary Islands were called canary birds. The native inhabitants whistle like birds to communicate from peak tn peak (hough this in- (foresting item may or may not belong in the story.
