Oswald: "Howard's bidding was really wonderful. He knew he would make seven hearts. His only problem was how to get to play the hand against nonvulnerable opponents who held the spade suit. So he just let himself get pushed to seven and did not redouble." Jim: "What did the op- ponents have to say while you were scoring the Oswald: "Plenty! The hand broke up the match. The general comment was. 'It is bad enough to play against Jacoby. Now Dietz turns out to be even tougher.' tuu The bidding has been: 15 West North East South You, South, hold. K 2 What do you bid? A-Bid one spade. Start bid- ding your good hands naturally. You plan to bid hearts later. TODAY'S QUESTION You hid one spade. Your partner responds one notrump. What do you do now? Answer Tomorrow RENO (AP) At one time some "Harolds Club or Bust" signs dotted rural America and club officials bragged you were never more than eight hours from one. But today, because of what officials of the glittering gambling casino call the "big take-down" sparked by the 1965 Highway Beautification Act, fewer than 300 signs remain. Eventually, all signs east of the Rocky mountains will be phased out. "I imagine we'll end up with about 75 said Bob Griffith, chief of outdoor ad- vertising for Harolds. The beautification act mandates non-conforming signs to be removed from highways by 1977 and allows signs only in commercial and industrial areas. The Harolds signs first ap- peared in the late 1930s, shortly after the casino opened its doors in 1935. The 1940s and 1950s were the signs' heydays as some 2.300 of them sprouted in rural areas across the nation. "It was a toss-up between us and Burma Shave over who had the most said Griffith, whose job it was to travel across the nation finding spots for the signs and seeing they were maintained. "It was quite he said. "You found a location, made an agreement with the property owner, got a permit if necessary and put up your sign." He said most people were happy to have the famed signs on their property and were usually paid a nominal fee for permitting them 'to be put up. One Oklahoma City woman, Griffith said, let the club build the sign on her property for free, because she said her hus- band had once won at the club. "It was always 'Pappy' Raymond Smith's idea to keep ours (the signs) out in the country He would often stress that next to word-of- mouth. outdoor signs were the best means of advertising across a large area." Smith was the founder of Harolds Club. Harolds never advertised in foreign countries, but did provide their signs to U. S. military bases overseas when asked. At one time nearly every overseas military base had a Harolds Club sign, said Griffith. for Better Health Bacteria Can Enter The By Dr. S.L. Andrlmai Many people don't realiz that bacteria can enter tin bloodstream; when it does, it i known as bacteremia. Almos any bacterial infection cai seed the blood with bacteria Even the bacterial infection can seed blood with bacd-ria. Even the liacteri which normally inhabit the mouth can enter the blood stream when the dentist repairs or pulls a tooth. Frequently an infected organ will spil bacteria into the blood after been manipulated in some way. Bacteria are divided into two large groups, depending on what color they are under a microscope after contact with a material called Gram's. Those which stain red are called gram-negative; those which stain blue or black are called gram-positive. The offenders in many cases of bacteremia are gram-nega- tive. These organisms are in- troduced into the blood during urinary tract infections, infec- tions of the bowel and infec- tions around the site of an in- travenous needle. Birth, abor- Dr. S.L. Andelman lion and infection of wounds, ulcers or burns can precipitate bacteremia. Gram-negative organisms have recently become more prominent since the advent of penicillin, which can usually control gram-posi- tive organisms. Gram-negative organisms can cause urinary tract infec- tions, bacteremia when they infect the female genital tract and meningitis, a serious ill- ness which often ends in death. Gram-positive bacteria can also enter the blood. A disease of the heart valves called bacterial endocarditis can result when gram-positive bacteria infect- the blood- stream. Pneumonia is often caused by a gram-positive bacteria. When patients with bac- teremia show severe symp- toms, the condition is called septicemia. The onset is often marked by an episode of shaking chills, followed by a fever of 101-105 degrees. Shocklike State At first the white blood count may be low, but after six to 12 hours it rises to an above-nor- mal level. Often the blood pressure will fall and even a shocklike state may occur. Small bruises or a rash may sometimes appear. The real danger of most bacteremia is a condition known as septic shock. Many bacteria release powerful chemicals which are toxic to human tissues. These alter the blood vessels to such an extent that the patient's blood pres- sure drops. If the blood pressure falls so low that the vital organs can't get their blood supply, the result is death. Approximately 40 percent to 80 percent of pa'- tients who go into septic shock die. The key to preventing this is early diagnosis of severe in- fection and prompt treatment with the proper antibiotic. If bacteremia is prevented, sep- tic shock will not occur. BIG GEORGE!

A DAY The Investor's Guide By Sam Shulsky Q. Sttat Hint ago I bought 200 shares of an electronics stock at 30 and 200 shares of an uil company at 50. Both are jiuw lower, and selling around the same price. If 1 buy 200 more shares of the oil com- pany, I can bring my average eust down substantially A. I den't sw how you can make an investment decision un the basis of arithmetic alone. Von are not putting in more money just for the pur- pose of averaging down your original cost. You don't make any money that way. You buy more stock because you think it is cheap at this price, the company's prospects are good, and the slock will recover. Obviously, I'm not going to plug line company as against another in a newspaper column. You must decide on the basis of whatever data you can gather which stock has the better chance for appreciation and buy that one. Investing money is far more complicated than adding up sums and dividing by 400. Q. Wf arf retired, with dual holdings (husband and wife) of about one-half million Following your columns, we don't stint ourselves, but still manage to save money. Our main problem is high income taxes. Should we put more money into tax-exempts? t A. By all means lift your holdings of tax-exempts to the point where your highest in- come tax bracket is reduced to the 30-35 percent level. Q. I don't understand why 1 should add all the annual dividends and capital gains I have reinvested in my mutual fund tn my HOI) in- vestment tn determine a capi- tal guin or loss. I've already paid income and gains taxes un them. A. side are you on, anyway? If you add to your original costs these reinvested dividends and capital gains, you bring your lax cost up thereby reducing any taxable capital gain (or increasing your tax deductible hiss) when you cash in your shares. If you should ignore the fact you reinvested this dividend and gains money, you would be paying taxes twice on any redemption: once un the dividends and gains as they are credited to you, and again on the redemption price uf the shares you have thus acquired. Just think of the dividend-, and gains yon reinvested in additional shares as money coming out "f other taxable sources, Q. My husband died sud- denly five years ago. I believe he owned some stock but because I was against his dabbling in the he used another mailing address for this purpose. Whom do 1 contact to find nut whether there were shares that he owned. A. If yon have no inkling of the brokerage firm he used, nr the shares he bought, the mailing address he used, you're in a blind alley. You might talk to your bank or to a large brokerage firm Sam Shulsky and see whether they use any firms which help run down shareholders' names.
