IRK ON BRIDGE:
Partner's poor play dooms daring defense

By LEE KIRK

An incredibly pathetic hand can
lull even good players into an un-
conscious state, for usually there
is nothing to do with this type of
hand except to follow suit. Some-
times, however, these anemic
monstrosities can have a vital
whearing on the outcome of the
hand, and woe to the player whose
lapse gives . the declarer his con-
tract.,
In today's hand, East made the
mistake of sleeping at the switch,
and his sin was compounded bye
the fact that his blundering ne-
ated a brilliant play by his part-

been had by one and all if North

gone to four and North would not

er's only hope is to find either the
king or jack remaining singleton
in either the East or West hands.
Fortunately for South (and this
column), he guessed right and
lead the queen and smothered
East's jack.
Some West players might have
held up the heart king, but with
the ace of diamonds still on the
board, it is apparent that t h i s
will gain nothing, and as the cards
lie, it loses a great deal. West
saw that his only hope was to
take the king and hope that
somehow the suit was blocked.
When East dropped the j a c k ,
West realized that his original
diagnosis was almost certainly
right

the hearts would be blocked and
his entiry would be gone, and if
he held up, the nine of clubs would
be cashed for the setting trick.
Left with choosing the lesser of
two evils, declarer took the ace,
and West's brilliant move, called
a Merrimac Coup, had apparently
doomed the contract. South re-
turned to his hand with the queen
of diamonds, leaving this position:

suddenly had to make a discard.
He casually threw off the eight of
clubs and the once doomed con-
tract now had everlasting 1i f e .
South was able to give East his
ten of diamonds without surrend-
ering a trick in clubs, making his
game contract,
West paused to pick his jaw off
the floor and then asked his ask-
ance partner where his mind had
been. East explained that he was
afraid that South might have
four spades, and besides, how
could he know that South didn't
have the nine of clubs. West mere-
ly forced a smile and said, "Very
clever, partner. You played him
for fifteen cards."

We're in the communications business.
And during the next 30 years we're going to upgrade all the equip-
ment we now have in order to provide even better service to our 6 million
existing-customers.
As if that weren'tienough we're also going to have to come up with
enough new equipment to provide telephone service to about 26 million
more people. As well as equipment for a much more extensive data com-
munications program.
We need enough people (electrical, civil, mechanical and industrial
engineers, designers, accountants and economists) to plan, design, build
and operate a company that will be four times bigger than we are today.
We also need engineers, researchers and scientists to develop electronic
switching equipment, laser and other communications systems we'll be
using 10,25 and 50 years from now.
But this is only one part of our communications business.
Our Sylvania people, for example, are involved in other types of
communications. Like color television sets, satellite tracking stations
and educational television systems.
Automatic Electric, Lenkurt, Ultronic Systems and someofourother
companies, subsidiaries and divisions are working on advanced types of
integrated circuitry, electro-opticals and communications systems be-
tween people and computers and between computers and computers.
So if you think you have something to say about the way people talk
to each other ... we're ready to listen.
