One of their most interesting contributions lo bidding was their rule of "The ace and the king." According to this rule if your partner made a game forcing or other very strong bid and you could take an ace and a king out of your hand and still have your previous bids you For Better Health Common Sense In Dealing With Dogs Prevents Bites NORTH (D) J962 V AQ94 4 3 4 A K 9 3 WEST EAST V 1073 KQ104 J9862 SOUTH 4 AQ1054 K86 4 A75 North-South vulnerable West North Pass Pass 5?

If you heM a singleton and could take away a king (or held no singleton, but could take away an ace) you should suggest a slam. South would have responded one spade without the king of hearts and ace of diamonds. Hence, when North jumped to three spades, South is able to bid a slam in accordance with this rule. He uses Blackwood because it is just possible that North would have a hand without an ace. North shows up with the two missing aces, but South does not bother with trying for a grand slam because he has nothing above the extra ace and king. Of course, he might have asked for kings and then settled for six or he might even have bid seven. Shift the king of spades over to East and seven wheels in.

Mown City Oty____________ 11> Dr. Andclman People are bitten more often by dogs than by any other domestic animal. So it's es- sential that yini know what In do in such a case. Most victims of dog-bite are under and a high percentage are children between 5 and 9. These statis- tics emphasize why children under 6-ycars-old should not be given dogs; why older children who have dogs should be taught how to care for them, and why all children should be instructed lo avoid strange animals. About 10 percent of dog-bite cases could be prevented if children would avoid exciting activity (running, fighting, yelling, bike riding, delivering newspapers) around dogs. Use Caution Take care in petting dogs and avoid startling them or removing food from them. And don'I intercede in dog fights. Take caution when assisting sick or injured animals and when picking up puppies in their mother's presence. Let "sleeping dogs" lie and avoid holding an animal's face near your own or your child's most child victims are bitten in the region of the head. If you follow these measures, you'll avoid a lot of close calls. Dog biles are a special form of puncture wound, even though tearing, laceration and bruising may be present. They are dangerous because of the likelihood of infection from or- ganisms in the animal's saliva. If you can't gel the victim lo a doctor immediately, follow these procedures: Scrub the wound with a strong soap or detergent. If only a puncture is present, encourage some bleeding; if only a slight nick, wasli under warm tap water. Afler rinsing the wound Ihoroughly with warm water or a salt solution, apply a heavy sterile dressing. Rest the injured part and give first aid for shock, (hen seek medical attention from u doc- tor. Act Quickly Act quickly if there is severe bleeding. Apply a thick pad of sterile cloth on the wound. pruss strongly on the dressing and bandage il in place. Keep the victim lying down and quiet until medical help arrives. Direct pressure over the wound will control bleed- ing, even if blood wells up from the wound or spurts fountain like. If absolutely necessary, apply a tourniquet, remem- bering it can only be used on a limb and may cause serious harm.

Raid of Etruscan Site Helps Uncover Devil God's Statue CERVETERI, Italy (AP) The statue of Tuchulca, the devil god of the Etruscans, has surfaced from "The Land of sending shivers down the spines of the laborers who made the historic archeological find. Legend in this Etruscan town 22 miles north of Rome has it that a devil's shadow guarded the treasures buried Land of where the Etruscans carved their tombs in the rocky hills of Greppe di Sant 'Angelo. The legend was good for bootleg excavators who challenged the devil and ghosts to dig for ancient vessels and statuettes in a no man's land peopled only by wild pigs. First Sculpture It was these excavators who gave police the clue which led to the unearthing of the first known sculpture of Tuchulca, known only to historians through inscriptions and paintings. Early in the summer, police investigated rumors that clandestine diggers had found a treasure worth at least as much as the famed Vase of Euphronios, the million vase acquired in 1972 by the New York Metropolitan Museum and which Cerveteri claims came from clandestine ex- cavations on the Greppe. Police called in archeologists and digging started. What came to light was an archeologist's dream. Two tombs carved into an 18-fool-high cliff looked down upon a "Sacrificial Yard" enclosed by a wall. Guarding the princely tombs from the walls stood two lions, a sphynx and Tuchulca, the devil. Close Relative Tuchulca's image featured furrowed forehead, a gaping, fleshy mouth and a goatee a close relative of the devil Christians depicited in the Middle Ages. The ornamental doors were topped by a decorated with panthers and lions biting and thrusting their clav.-s into stags and boars. A staircase carved in the rock led down In (he Sacrificial Yard. The entrance to the tombs was through narrow slits under the carved doors. Experts believe the tomb belonged to a king and his family some years age The architecture is unique for southern Etruria, combin- ing local and northern styles. Each tomb features one large room, which the experts said appear to have been loot- ed, in the tombs they found broken vases and inscribed tombstones in the shape of pballuses. The Etruscans had the highest form of civilization in Italy before the rise of Rome. If evolved around the eighth cen- tury B.C., developed rapidly during the seventh century, achieved its peak during the sixth century, and declined during the fifth and fourth centuries. Etruscan wealth and power was in part based upon their knowledge of ironworking and their exploitation of iron deposits which were abundant in Etruria.

Schaben Claims Ray Is Not Listening CEDAR FALLS (UP1) -Democratic gubernatorial candidate James Schaben Tuesday accused Gov. Robert D. Ray of not listening to university presidents who argued against a recent tuition increase at state schools. Schaben, who met with .students at the University of Northern Iowa here, also said inflation is making it increasingly difficult for students to afford college costs. Schaben said he joined the state university presidents in opposing the tuition increase, "but the governor didn't listen to us.
