CONTRACT

" Yes," said Shelton.
" Mrs. Shelton," called Mrs. Dittmar to the other table, " does your big man play goulashes ?"
" Oh, yes," said Mrs. Shelton.
" You're sure you know what they are," said Cameron to Shelton.
" I've played them often," said the latter.
" A goulash," said the hostess, " is where the hand is passed and then we all put our hands together like this and cut them and the dealer deals five around twice and then three. It makes crazy hands, but it's thrilling."
" And the bidding is different," said Mrs. Dittmar, his partner at this stage. " Big mans musn't get too wild."
Shelton, who had dealt, looked at his hand and saw no temptation to get wild; at least, not any wilder than he was. He had the king, queen and jack of spades, four silly hearts, four very young clubs and two diamonds of no standing. He passed. Cameron bid three clubs and Mrs. Dittmar four diamonds. That was enough to make game (they already had thirty), and when Mrs. French went by, Shelton unhesitatingly did the same. So did Cameron. It developed that Mrs. Dittmar had the ace, king, jack, ten and another diamond. Cameron had none and Mrs. French reeked with them. The bidder was set two. Her honors counted one hundred and the opponents' net profit was two hundred, Mrs. Dittmar being vulnerable, or " venerable," as Mrs. French laughingly, but not very tactfully, called it.
Cameron lighted into Mrs. French for not doubling Mrs. Dittmar and Mrs. French observed that she guessed she knew what she was doing. Shelton hoped this would develop into a brawl, but it was forgotten when Mrs. Dittniar asked him querulously why he had not shown her his spades, a suit of which she had held the ace, ten to five.
" `Ve're lucky, partner," said Mrs. French to Cameron. " They could have made four spades like a breeze."
" I'd have lost only the ace of hearts and queen of diamonds," said Mrs. Dittmar, doubtless figuring that the maid would have disposed of her two losing clubs when she swept next morning.
" In this game, everything depends on the bidding," said Mrs. French to Shelton. " You must give your partner all the information You can."
" Don't coach him! " said Cameron with an exasperating laugh. " He's treating us pretty good."
