Here is what the Doctor has to Say!

“I didn’t think I could be helped, but my results from
Mutter’s Hearing have been wonderful!”

As someone who has had hearing problems beginning in adolescence, I had held off from
getting hearing aids out of a false sense of pride, until ten years ago. At that time, I had

invested 5000 dollars with only moderate results. Recently, one of my sons told me that I was
still having problems understanding his daughter. He suggested that there might might be
technical advances since I had bought my hearing aids. After working with Mutter’s Hearing
Center, I have experienced very positive results. I am now able to hear the soft speech of my
granddaughter.
I am thankful for the kindness of Mr. Mutter and his staff. I really didn’t think that I
could be helped, but the results have been wonderful.

Sincerely,
David Hedberg M.D.

DO YOU LOOK FOR SPEED OR SAFETY? 984

873

I am writing this column on a transatlantic jet covering a mile approximately every six AKQJ65
seconds. It is impossible to imagine that speed at 35,000 feet, but if we were doing it
on a salt flat à la Donald Campbell, it would be a mixture of thrilling and scary. WEST A
KJ73 EAST
Defense and declarer-play are like that. Sometimes speed is of the essence — you need J2
to be actively trying to win tricks or eliminate losers. At other times, you want to sit back 872 A 10 2
and wait for winners to fall into your lap — you play passively. Q J 10 6
Q5
Which is relevant in this week’s deal? Look at the West hand. What would you lead
against four hearts: the spade three or club queen? 10 9 4

North’s three-diamond rebid promised at least a decent six-card suit and seven winners. 97542
South’s three hearts was game-forcing and also indicated a six-card or longer suit.
North’s four clubs was an advance control-bid, which said that he had heart support, SOUTH
liked his hand for a slam and had the club ace, but did not have the spade ace (a suit he
skipped over). South settled into four hearts. Q65

North and South have the values for game; they even dabbled at a slam. West must be A K 10 9 6 4
active, leading the spade three. East wins with his ace and returns the spade 10, the
higher of two remaining cards. West overtakes with his jack and cashes the spade king. 3
But where is trick four?
K83
West, seeing no minor-suit winner available, must try for a trump trick. He leads the 13th
spade and hopes partner ruffs with the heart queen, which would effect an uppercut. Dealer: North; Vulnerable: Both
