Yes, Lillian, I agree on all points. Right palm up, left palm down is what I learned
in the Los Angeles Branch, and it is beautifully consistent for playing man or woman.
How else could the first couple do the final set between own-sex 2 and 3 in J. B.
Milne with any grace? Consistency is good. Simplicity is good. What I learned is
good (prefered), and this is it. Thanks for saying it so well.

Cheers, Carol Johnson
