sang about it.
Dianne Mather as Miss Ade-
laide, a character who epito-
mizes the latterday "dumb
blonde," gave a fine perform-
ance as the squeaky-voicedI
nightclub singer. Unfortunately,
her portrayal was marred when
she tried to hard for cuteness,
prancing absurdly about the
stage and running her lines to-
gether to the point of inco-
herence.
A minor character should be
mentioned in passing: Paul
Sivertson as Salvation Army
drummer Arvide Abernathy
sings one of the most memor-,
able and moving numbers of the
evening, "More I Cannot Wish
You."
But any flaws in the acting
were easily overwhelmed by the

night. Every character onstage
--from the Runyonland charac-
ters (bobby soxers, policemen,
vendors and sightseers) to the
dancers and leading characters
-seemed to be having one
helluva good time.
And, for that matter, so did

Opening lead: Four of clubs.
West led the four of clubs
and East won his ace, the king
and queen falling on the same
trick. Nothing that declarer had
a singleton club as well as dum-
my, East carefully returned a
trump not to give up a trick.
South, of course, could not
have directed the defense more
favorably for his side. Pull;ng
trump in two rounds, declarer
proceeded to knock out the dia-
mond ace and claim his con-
tract, making ten tricks in the
form of six spades and four
diamonds.
East failed to heed the warn-
ing of dummy's long solid d;a-
mond suit. Upon winning the
ace of clubs, he should cash
the ace of hearts and continue
with a small heart.
~Now West's jack of hearts will
force dummy's king, and when
declarer attempts to drive out
the ace of diamonds, East will
cash the queen of hearts to set
the contract one trick, taking
two hearts, one diamond, and

one club.
Note that shifting to Mne ace
and another heart cannot cast
a trick and offers the defense
their only chance to heat the
hand. Declarer is surely mark-
ed with at least six spades to
the ace, king for his vulnerable
preempt. East can see that de-
clarer will come to ten tricks
if East adopts a passive de-
fense.
The situation would be differ-
ent if dummy had only four
diamonds, then East would see
that declarer could not come to
more than nine tricks - three
diamonds and six spades-and
it would be right to adopt a
passive line of defense.
