This tigress burned very bright
Charles Goren
November 16, 1970
During my long and happy bridge career, I have had the good fortune to play as the partner of some of the world's greatest players. Two of them were women, and when my wins are finally totted up, these two ladies no doubt will figure in a majority of them. One, of course, was the late Helen Sobel Smith (SI, Sept. 22, 1969). The other, whose name is less well known to players nowadays, was Mrs. R. C. (Sally) Young of Philadelphia. Her death earlier this year was mourned by all of us oldtimers who knew her as both a fearsome opponent and a wonderful partner—a combination that eludes most players, the men because they are too tough and the women because they are too soft.
