IB little fur wraps are delight
fully warm and they are easier
to take care of than a bulky coat
In a theater seat, So they are par
ticularly popular with the matinee
plrl. This dainty wrap (3291) Is of
Russian mink. lA circular cape of the
fur falls well below the waist line and
two long animal skins make the col
lar, which may be twisted round the
throat in muffler or scarf fashion.
The mink wrap accompanies a frock
of blue tricotine and one of the cute
little shirred silk hats just out In
advance spring style.

about the throat and the turban is pf

rich neckpiece and bat accompany a

embroidered with braid in self tone.
And of course, as you may gaess, she
is wearing gray silk stockings and
srsy suede strap slippers.
From her snusrrled-in-fur look you
might assume that she (453$) Is all
wrapped up for January. So she is
as far as you can see. But the heavy
coat of black velvet falls over a skirt
of frilly chiffon and, of course, the
chiffon frock demands dainty little
strap slippers and silk stockings. But
the width and warmth tf the big
squirrel collar surely keep her warm
as toast; and very effective with the

fussed, and T made a pre-emptive
raise, and said "two spades." A pre
emptive raise is essentially different
from a pre-emptive bid and is strongly
approved by many players who dis
approve the pre-emptive bid. A pre
emptive bid pre-empts one's partner
as well as one's opponents: It Is, In
fact, a command to one's partner to
let the bid stand, no matter how illy
liis band may be adapted to it or
how beautifully it may conform to
come other bid. If a pre-emptive bid
pre-empted one's opponents only, it
would be much more generally ap
proved than it is. This is what the
pre-emptive raise accomplishes; It
ehuts out the opponent only. It is
made, necessarily, after the partner
has spoken. The bid he has made
constitutes, in fact, the basia of the

in the hope to handicap fourth player
as regards making a bid. Many believe
in raising the bid at once to within
one of the number of times the hand
would Justify the raise, if opposing
Dias forced one to raise.
As stated, therefore, T bid "two
spades," but B in this case refused
to be pre-empted and came out with
"three diamonds." (I am giving the
bids as they were made, not necee
sarily as they should be made. B
truly has little on which to base a
bid of three, the less so as his partner
nas passed, thus proclaiming a band
lacking a genuine first-round bid. The
only Justification perhaps was that it
was the rubber game.)
Z, whose hand was slightly stronger
than was necessary for her initial bid
and encouraged by her partner's pre
emptive raise, went "three Bpades."
A then came suddenly to life, and,
having but one of her partner's suit
(diamonds), though an unusually long
suit of clubs second-round bids being
generally on long weak suits an
nounced "four clubs." Y passed (I
think he should have given another
raise), and B. realizing his partner
could not support diamonds and
unable himself to support clubs,
which bid, being a second-round bid
most likely Indicated length, rather
than high-card strength, also passed.
Z went to "four spades," and A
foolishly doubled. What there'was In
her hand to Justify the double, it
would be difficult to say. A safe
double presupposes the book in the
doubling player's hand, trusting to
one's partner for the extra trick, the
trick necessary to defeat the double.

; an eight-spot is never a fourth best
j lead by the very nature of the case
I it cannot be, since if one holds three
.cards higher than an eight-spot it is
I inevitably a high-card lead. The lead
of such card, therefore, always points
to danger. Setting aside this con
sideration, Z should have known by
the eleven- Yule that A's lead was a
shot suit, possibly a doubleton,
though more likely a singleton. If
the card led were a fourth best, by
inferences from the eleven rule Z
should have known there could have
been Just three cards higher than the
eight which were out against the
leader. Her own hand contained two
higher and the dummy hand three
higher. Clearly, then, it was not a
fourth best lead. This should have
emphasized more than ever the Im
portance of winning the first trick.
Z's excuse for the play of the jack
rsther than the king was that she
thought Jack would hold good and
sh would thus make three tricks In
the suit. She apparently failed to
realize that by winning the first
trick with king and exhausting
trumps, leaving herself In the lead
for the fifth trick, she could lead a
heart from her own hand and make
the finesse of her Jack then if at
that time it seemed well to do so.
A's failure to follow to this trick
would at once proclaim the situation
and Z could win the immediate trick
or otherwise as she might think best.
There is a current saying1 to the
effect that "cards never forgive," and
apparently it proved true in this
case, for not only did Z's unwise play
cost the side a considerable sum of
money, but it was the cause even
tually of their losing the rubber, and,
as will sometimes happen, the cards
began to run against them and so
continued during the remainder of

or 5. A contends that since he dou
bled a four-trick contract only Z is
not entitled to score the value of the
additional trick below the line, but
should score simply an additional 50
in the honor score.
A certainly has hazy Ideas regard
ing the subject, and until she famil
iarizes herself as to the proper mode
of scoring she would be infinitely
wiser in not attempting a double, for I
she certainly cannot have a clear or I
definite idea as to the strength jus
tifying a double or the many consid
erations governing the situation.
However, In answer to the question,
would state that when a player I

the doubled value as well of any and
all tricks she takes in excess of the
number named. Z's score in this
case would be 80 below the line, and
