WHO DEALT?

Arthur even if you hate me for it. I know you'd be interested, Arthur, not only because you're Tom's friend, but on account of you being such a famous athlete yourself. Let me see, how was it, Tom? You must help me out. Well, if I don't get it right, you correct me.
Well, Tom's friends at Yale had heard what a wonderful football player he was in high school so they made him try for a place on the Yale nine. Tom had always played half-back. You have to be a fast runner to be a half-back and Tom could run awfully fast. He can yet. When we were engaged we used to run races and the prize was All right, Tommie, I won't give away our secrets. Anyway, he can beat me to pieces.
Well, he wanted to play half-back at Yale and he was getting along fine and the other men on the team said he would be a wonder and then one day they were having their practice and Tex Jones, no, Ted Jones-he's the main coach-he scolded Tom for having the signal wrong and Tom proved that Jones was wrong and he was right and Jones never forgave him.

I know that sometimes when he doubles he means one thing and sometimes another. But I always forget which is which. Let me see; it was two spades that he doubled, wasn't it? That means I'm to leave him in, I'm pretty sure. Well, I'll pass. Oh, I'm sorry, Tommie ! I knew I'd get it wrong. Please forgive me. But maybe we'll set them anyway. Whose lead ?
I'll stop talking now and try and keep my mind on the game. You needn't look that way, Tommie. I can stop talking if I try. It's kind of hard to concentrate though, when you're, well, excited. It's not only meeting you people, but I always get excited traveling. I was just terrible on our honeymoon, but then I guess a honeymoon's enough to make anybody nervous. I'll never forget when we went into the hotel in Chicago All right, Tommie, 1 won't. But I can tell about meeting the Bakers.
They're a couple about our age that I've known all my life. They were the last people in the world I wanted to see, but we ran ir to them on State Street and they insisted on us coming to their
