Comedy—GHOST OF FOLLY LOCAL ACCIDENT CASES ARE HEARD . --i James Cassidy of Gouverneur Award- ed 10 Per Cent Loss After Examina- tion in Compensation Court. j At the term of compensation court held at Canton last week, 56 cases were presented. Only ten cases were! closed. j The case of Bert Price of Richvillel against D. Ashton Moore of Dekalb,) which has been disputed for some time, has been referred to the desk! of the referee for settlement. Moore carried no insurance on Price who was doing carpenter work for him., so the case is unusual in that aspect. George Collins, East Main street. Canton, who had his hand operated on at the Hepburn hospital this fall, was awarded compensation for one and one-half weeks to supplement the award for a similar time which he had previously received. He is em- ployed by John Coakley, local builder. The case of Louis Saidel of Gouv- erneur who Is employed by Sol Kap- lan of Gouverneur was closed with- out award. The case of Stanley Barr of Richville. an employe of the Val- *ibr Construction Company of New Milford, Conn., was continued and payments made were approved. James Cassidy of Gouverneur was awarded 10 per cent loss after exam- ination by Dr. Benton. His disabili- ty lasted for ten weeks for which he received an award of $153.90. His amployer was R. R. Stockham of Gouverneur. Joseph Welsh of Ed- wards, employed by the St. Joseph's I^ead company, had his case closed. Wlllard Ormsbe of Hermon re- ceived an award of $17.31 per week from July 5 to date, making an amount of about $255 and his case was continued. He is employed by ?t. Lawrence county. Edward Depan of Gouverneur. employed by the town of Fowler, received an award of $9.65 per week from July 5 to Aug. 18. making nearly $60. The case of Robert Aldridge of Edwards employed by the St. Law- rence county highway department at Canton, was referred to the referee to be settled in about two months. Joseph Liscumb of Hermon, em- ployed by the town of Hermon, had his case closed without award. Harley Petrie of Hailesboro had his case closed. Petrie is employed by the town of Fowler. It in roally surprising what simple; mistakes often are made by players I who think they pla> a pretty fair! game. Here are several examples! that the writer noticed in a recent game: Hearts—K, 6, 3 Clubs--J. 4 Diamonds- K, 7, 6, 3, 2 Spades—J, lo, S : Y : - ' *: A it : : Z Hearts—Q, 9, 4 Clubs A, Q,' 7 Diamonds-—A, > Spades- -A, Q, 7, 6, 2 Z dealt, bid one spad*•, A and Y pass- ed and B bid two hearts. Z bid two j spades, all passed and A opened the | tt-n of hearts, Z's proper play, of course, is the king of hearts in dum- ''. my. B must either win this trick with the ace or allow the king to ! hold. If he wins the trick, Z must win the next two heart tricks, for he holds the queen nine of hearts owr B's jack. If n should fail to i play the ace, Z must win one more ; trick with the queen of hearts. In either event, therefore, by playing ; the king of hearts at trick one, Z is sure of two tricks, no matter how B i plays. In the actual play,' however, J Z made a serious mistake When the . ten of hearts was led, he played the trey of hearts from Y's hand and B ! also played low. z was thus forced j to win the trick with the queen and j B now held the ace jack of hearts ! over Y's king and was, therefore, as-j sured of two tricks. I Z's mistakes in this hand, how-! ever, were not over. After winning! the first heart trick with the queen, he led a low diamond and won the ! trick in Y's hand with the king. He j now had two possible plays. He could had th^ jack of spades or the low Hub. with the purpose in view of finessing in either case His proper lead was the jack of spades If this finesse should losv, he would have a re-entry in Y's hand with the ttm of spaxles. If B should cover with the king of spades, Z should play his ace and thus again have a re-entry with the ten of spades. If B held the king and failed to cover, Y's jack of spades would hold the trick and Z should then lead Y's low club and play the queen from his own hand. If this finesse loses, he will thus have a re-entry with the jack of clubs in . Y's hand. ' Z. however, thought of none of these facts. He proceeded to lead ' the jack of clubs from \\$ hand and ' A won the trick with the king. He returned! a low heart and B won two 1 heart tricks with the ace jack. B then led a low club which Z was obliged to win with the queen of clubs in his own hand. He now had , no way to get Y's hand in the lead ! except, by trumping a club. He' trumped with the eight of spades and B over-trumped with the nine. As B originally held the K, 9, 5 of spades, be also made the king of spades so that Y-Z scored only two , odd. On the other hand, if Z had played his finesse correctly, he would have scored four odd and game, provided, of course, that he had played the king of hearts at trick one. It is mis- takes such as Z made in this hand that lose so many games;and the sad part of it is that they are all so easy to avoid. Learn to think out your plays in advance and select one that gives you the best chance for game. Here is another hand that illus- trates the value of planning your finesse* so that you will get a double chance for game, instead of a single one: Hearts—Q, 9, 8, 5 Clubs—6. 3 Diamonds—Q Spades—J Hearts—J, 7, 6 Clubs*—J, 10 \Diamonds^—none Spades—9, 8 y : A I : Z Hearts—none Clubs—A. Q, 9, 5 Diamonds—none Spades—A, Q, 10 Hearts—K, 10 Clubs—K, 8, 7 Diamonds—8 Spade*—K, 6 Z is playing the hand, spades are trumps and Y\ hand is in the lead. He has two possible finesses, one in clubs and one in spades. If he leads the jack of clubs, he is sure of the balance of the tricks for if B covers with the king, Z will play his ace and put Y's hand again in the lead with the ten of clubs. He can then finesse the spades. If B doesn't cover the jack of clubs, Z should then play the low spade and finesse the queen. He should then play first the ace of clubs and then a small club and trump in Y's hand. He can then trump a heart. lead the ace of spades and his clubs are good. Played in either of these ways, Y-Z can win all of the tricks. Suppose, however, that Z at trick j one takes the spade finesse before! the club finesse. It will win. of course, but how can he get Y's hand j in again to make the club finesse? He would thus have to lose a club 1 trick and win one less trick than if 1 he had first taken the club finesse, j There are numberless hands where I these principles should be applied, so ' study them carefully and If you thor- oughly understand them yo>u will win many a game and rubber that you could not win otherwise.
