Nazir 33: Shortest Daf

We begin with very brief commentary on the situation discussed yesterday: when a a group of six people see someone approaching and each says "I am a nazirite if that is so-and-so" (and five other conditional statements.  Are they all nazirites or not, considering that they have each stated "I am a nazirite" as the the first clauses of their statements.  

Abaye attempts to clarify Beit Hillel's supposition regarding one's state of nazirut if the person turned back without identifying himself.  And that is just about all of amud (a).  Amud (b) includes no Gemara, as the entire vilna page is taken up by Tosafot commentary.  In the Steinsaltz translation, we are given no material at all in amud (b).  This is the first time that I have encountered this circumstance in my past three years of learning daf yomi.
