By ED SIMONS
Director of League Bridge Lessons
Of all the plays which occur in
bridge, the one which seems to
carry with it the highest degree of
distinction is the squeeze. Because
of its relative rarity, the play is
not one of the most important fa-
cets of the game. Yet the ability
to recognize and execute a squeeze
C so enhances the player's reputation
that it usually is the first advanced
play that the budding expert tries
North's jump shift to 2 Dia-
monds would be classed as some-
what aggressive. A slightly strong-
er hand is usually required from
this bid which is forcing to game.
However, it is frequently wise to
make such a forcing bid as soon
as possible in order to leave bid-
ding space to show other features
of the han din exploring the pos-'
sibilities of slam. After this initial
outburst, the bidding proceeded
c'almly to 3 NT.
THE OPENING lead was the 3
of hearts. East played the king and
south won the trick with the ace.
The box office is open from
10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. every day
except Sundays. Good seats are
still available for all produc-

Thus far the declarer has won 8
tricks, the defense 1. The declarer
has a winning diamond and the
ace and king of clubs. The last
trick is undecided. If east can be
induced to discard a spade, south's
5 will win, or if west discards a
heart north's 8 will win. When
the diamond 5 is led, east must
discard a club. Now south recog-
nizes his 5 of spades will never
win a trick and can discard it.
Likewise, west must discard a club,
lest the dummy's 8 of hearts win
a trick. But now the king and ace
of clubs remove all clubs from de-
fenders hands, and south wins the
last trick with the 10 of clubs.

monia is recommended as safe
cleanser for plate glass mirrors.
