Theatre this Sunday. Holliday’s
breakthrough performance as
Billy Dawn led to her being cast
in the 1950 film version, for
which she won an Oscar and a
Golden Globe for Best Actress
in a Musical or Comedy. “Born
Yesterday” is the story of Harry
Brock, a corrupt, hot-tempered
tycoon scheming to make a
name for himself in power-fo-
cused Washington, D.C. Feel-
ing held back by his bombshell
former showgirl girlfriend Billy
Dawn, who doesn’t fit into Wash-

Harry enlists some of his nefar-

into a cultured socialite. In clas-
sic screwball comedy fashion,
Harry’s plans go south, as Billie

DO NOT BE AFRAID OF A SHORTAGE NORTH
Doug Larson, a columnist and editor, said, “If people concentrated on the really WEST K 10 6 5 EAST
important things in life, there’d be a shortage of ...” what? A87 A 10 8 6 10 9 6 3
A9432 QJ83 QJ8
Sometimes you seem to be in a contract with a shortage of trumps. Then, after 94 Q532
assuming that partner misbid again, you must decide whether it is better to play on K64 SOUTH A 10
trumps to reduce the number of tricks the opponents can take in the suit, or to try to KQJ52
score as many ruffing tricks as you can. 7
Which approach is better for South in this two-spade contract after West leads the 9752
Dealer: East; Vulnerable: East-West
Unusually, the auction looks perfect! Yes, East is stronger than he might have been, but
to double two spades would have been dangerous. Here, it would have left West the The Bidding:
unpleasant choice between minus 470 (two spades doubled and made) and minus 500
(three hearts doubled down two; surely North would have doubled). SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST OPENING
South took East’s diamond queen (a silly play that did not cost) with the king and played Pass 1 Hearts Pass 2 Hearts LEAD:
his heart. West won with the ace and led his second diamond. Declarer put up dummy’s 2 Spades Pass Pass Pass 9 Diamonds
ace and played a spade to the king and ace. The defenders continued with a club to
the ace, a diamond ruff, the club king, a club ruff and a fourth diamond, which promoted
another trump trick for down two.
With winners outside spades and reasonably strong trumps, South should have played
on spades. After three rounds, he could have attacked clubs and eventually lost only
two spades, one heart and two clubs.
Larson said that there would be a shortage of fishing poles!
