Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - September 12, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa WIN AT BRIDGE By Oswald & James Jaraby From 1933 until Oswald Jacoby quit bridge for the duration on Dec. 7, 1941, his team, the Four Aces, dominated bridge. One of their most interesting contributions to 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 should bid a slam If you held 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.

Most victims of dog-bite are under 20-years-old— and a high percentage are children between 5 and 9. These1 statistics emphasize why children under H-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 Im1 instructed to avoid strange animals About IO 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 tare in petting dogs and avoid startling them or removing food from them. And don’t 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 bites 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 organisms in the animal's saliva If you can t get the victim to a doctor immediately, follow these procedures: Scrub the wound with a strong soap or detergent. lf only a puncture is present, encourage some bleeding; if only a slight nick, wash under warm tap water After rinsing the wound thoroughly with warm water or a salt solution, apply a heavy sterile dressing. Rest the injured part and give first aid for shock, then seek medical attention from a doctor Act Quickly Act quickly if there is severe bleeding. Apply a thick pad of sterile cloth on the wound, press strongly on the dressing and bandage it in place. Keep the victim lying down and quiet until medical help arrives Direct pressure over the wound will control bleeding, even if blood wells up from the wound or spurts fountain like. lf absolutely necessary, apply a tourniquet, remembering it can only Im1 used on a limb and may cause serious harm Dr. Andelman In every ease of dog-bite, even if your own pet is involved, you should report the attack to health authorities. Don’t permit the animal to be shot. have the owner or a veterinarian keep the animal under quarantine for IO days to determine whether it develops symptoms of rabies ON THIS DATE in 1945, Gen Douglas MacArthur had the secret Black Dragon society dissolved in Japan and many of its leaders were arrested. LAFF • A - DAY "As a matter of fact, I had an easy day—my train was stalled this morning for five hours.' Raid of Etruscan Site Helps Uncover Devil God s Statue CERVETERl, Italy (AP) -The statue of Tuchulca, the devil god of the Etruscans, has surfaced from “The Land of Ghosts”, sending shivers down the spines of the laborers who made the historic archeological find. Legend in this Etruscan tow n 22 miles north of Rome has it that a devil's Shadow guarded the treasures buried in “The Land of Ghosts", 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 Euphromos, the ti million vase acquired in 1972 bv the New York Metropolitan Museum and which Cerveteri claims came from clandestine excavations 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-foot-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. ( lose Relater 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 frieze decorated with panthers and lions biting and thrusting their claws into stags and boars. A staircase carved in the rock led down to the Sacrificial Yard The entrance to tho tombs was through narrow slits under the carved doors Experts believe the tomb belonged to a king and his family some 2.5(H) years ago. The architecture is unique for southern Etruria, combining local and northern styles Each tomb features one large room, which the experts said appear to have been looted. In the tombs they found broken vases and inscribed tombstones in the shape of phalluses. The Etruscans had the highest form of civilization in Italv before the rise of Rome. It evolved around the eighth century 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 Iron working and their exploitation of iron deposits which were abundant in Etruria.
