The History of
Brought to you by
Once upon a time a man called Stingy Jack invited the devil to have a drink with him. Jack, who lived up to his
Moniker, did not want to spend money so he persuaded the devil to turn himself into a coin that Jack could use
to pay. The devil agreed but instead of buying the drinks Jack decided to keep the money. He put it deep down
inside his pocket beside a silver cross which kept the devil from turning back to his original form. Eventually Jack
decided to let the devil go as long as he promised not to bother Jack for one more year and if Jack died the devil
would not claim his soul. A year later Jack convinced the devil to climb a tree for a piece of fruit. While the devil
was picking the fruit Jack carved a cross in the tree bark which prevented the devil from climbing down until the
devil promised Jack that he wouldn’t bother him for 10 more years. When Jack died God wouldn’t allow him into
heaven and the devil, upset by the tricks that Jack had played on him but keeping his word not to claim his soul,
would not let Jack into hell. He sent Jack off into the dark night with only a burning coal to light his way. Jack put
the coal into a carved turnip and has wandered the earth with it ever since. The Irish call this ghostly figure Jack
of the lantern. Eventually it was shortened to the term that we use today Jack-O’-Lantern. Folks in Ireland and
Scotland started carving their own versions of Jack’s lanterns by etching scary faces into turnips
or potatoes and setting them near the windows and the doors to scare away Stingy Jack and
other evil spirits. When they emigrated to America the tradition came with them. They realized
that pumpkins were native to our country and that they made perfect Jack-O’-Lanterns and
that’s why we carve pumpkins to this very day.

WATCH THE SPOTS TO AVOID ROAD BUMPS NORTH
Here is one of Jeff Foxworthy’s redneck jokes: “If you think the last four words of the WEST 10 EAST
national anthem are ‘Gentlemen, start your engines,’ you might be a redneck.” K 10 J 10 6 9763
Q8653 876 942
When you are a bridge declarer, you try to play smoothly and make your contract. Like a 98743 AQ
race car driver, you try to steer around bumps in the road. A SOUTH Q432
In this week’s deal, which bump should South avoid in three no-trump after winning the AKJ7
first trick with dummy’s heart 10? K52
K J 10 9 5
In the auction, after North opened with a weak two-bid, South sensibly used the
artificial two-no-trump inquiry. He planned to pass if partner rebid three spades to Dealer: North; Vulnerable: North-South
show a minimum. Here, though, North replied with three no-trump. In the old days, this
guaranteed a suit headed by the ace-king-queen. However, as that happened so rarely, The Bidding:
nowadays this rebid indicates a maximum with a suit headed by at least the ace-queen-
jack. (Note that four spades fails if East leads a club, West shifts to a diamond and SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST OPENING
West gets a club ruff.) 2 NT Pass 2 Spades Pass
3 NT All Pass LEAD:
South understandably wanted to score four club tricks, but just in case the break was 5 Hearts
bad, he carefully covered dummy’s six with his jack. West now made a very sneaky play
— she shifted to the spade 10!
South never believed West could be underleading the king, so he won with dummy’s
ace and successfully ran the club eight, underscoring his key play at trick two. Declarer
took another club finesse, then cashed his remaining winners in that suit and hearts.
Finally, he led the heart jack and was lucky that he had to score his diamond king.
