The bidding was the same et each table. North chose to open his hand with one club end South responded with one no trnmp to show a holding of average value, 9 lo II points. When North in- vited a game by raising to two no trump, .South had enough in reserve with 10 points and a five card suit lo accept. The play began in the same manner at both tables. West opened the five of hearts, East put up Die jack end South won the Irick with the king. A diamond was led to the ace and a small dia- mond returned, on which was called to make a discard. The defender at one table those to part wilh Inc eight Of spades. Inasmuch as ono. diamond Lrick must be lost in order to establish Ihe suit, South ducked the lead into West. The latter was some- what reluctant to continue hearts, for fear that declare! still held a guarded queen and had merely been false- carding when he won the opening lead with the king. Hoping that his partner has a quick entry in spades to make a heart play thru South, West shifted to the seven of spades. South ran for cover with rune I wo spades, one heart, (our diamonds, and two clubs. At the other table East de- voted more time to his dis- card when the second round of diamonds was led. By em- ploying the rule of II at trick one, he had discovered that Ihe declarer had only one card in hearts that was higher than the five. [The rule provides that when the card led is subtracted Irom It, the remainder is equal lo the number of cards in the s u i Ihe leader's can beat tha card led.] By subtracting five from 11, Easl determined that there were six outstanding spot cards higher than the five. He was looking at five of thorn between his own hand and the dummy. South, therefore, had only one high- er ap- peared on the opening lead. East made good use of this information, for on the second round of diamonds, he discarded Die queen of hearts, in order to clarify the picture for his partner. When West got in wilh his diamond stopper, it became routine for him to cash out the heart suit and defeat tho contract. Measuring the rise and fall of tides is stili a ticklish prob- lem. But modern Earth scien- tists estimate that the solid continents rise and fall several inches, twice during a period of about. 24 hours and 50 minutes. These land tides swing around the globe in step with the ocean tides and, like the tides of the ocean, they vary from place to place and at different times of the year. The highest land tides are es- timated to lift the continent of North America about six inches. One would expect such upheav- als to cause widespread dam- age Lo buildings and geological formations. Bui there are rea- sons why they do not. The tidal action 15 global, and it heaves the enlire Earth's crust as a single unit. Though the crust appears to be rigid, it has a somewhat elastic quality. As the enormous cnistal tides swing around the globe, the land rises and falls so smoothly beneath our feet thai we do not even feel it- These land tides are caused by the gravitational pull of the Moon and the Sun, the same forces that govern the ocean tides The moon pulls more than twice as hard as the Sun because, though much less mas- sive, it is much closer. The tidal pull on the Earth varies because the Moon orbits around us. changing its position in rela- tion to the Sun. The strongest land and ocean occur when the Moon is new and again when it is full. At such times, the Moon and Sun pull Logelher with their combined strength. We feel the weakest tidal pulls when the Moon is in the quarter and three quarter phase. At such times the Sun and Moon pull from opposite directions, reduc- ing their total strength. As in the ocean, the two daily highs and lows are governed by the Moon passing overhead, which causes them to chase each other around the globe. The Moon exerts more pull j on our land and ocean tides than does Ihe Sun. But the evi- dence suggesls lhat the Sun has more control over certain tides in Ihe global almosphere. fls radialion warms the gaseous air. causing it to expand and bulge aloft. This atmospheric tide is highest under the noon- day Sun, and as the Earth ro- tates, it ebbs and flows around the globe.
