Gettysburg Times – 2 Feb 1943
Kansas City (AP) —
Thirteen I kibitzers surrounded the players in a slam-bound bridge game at the Kansas City Athletic club.
Kibitzer Jay Jacobstein was called to a nearby telephone.
After a few words into the phone, he shouted to the bridge players:
«Wait, wait, don’t start. »
Thinking he had a message, they waited until he hung up.
He strolled back and remarked:
«May I review the bidding?»
