The nnc shown today was first used by Harry Fishbein of New York, one of the great players back in the '30s. This isn't the exact hand but the principle involved is the same. East wins the first trick with the king of spades and leads the suit back.

South has already lost the spade finesse but will make his contract if he can score four club tricks. He has a sure thing against any 3-2 club break only a 4-1 break can hurt him. In the normal course of events he will play dummy's king of clubs and lead a club back to his ace because if East has four clubs to the jack-nine there is no way to pick the suit up. East will show out on the second club. South will have a proven finesse against West's jack-nine and be home with the bacon. When he defended the hand Fishbein played the nine of clubs on the first lead of the suit. This falsecard gave South a chance to guard against four clubs to the jack in either hand. He fell for it like a ton of bricks. Played the second high club from dummy and went down one trick. Tho bidding has been: 15 West North Kasl South 14 Puss Pass 2 N.T. Puss Pass Pass 4 N.T.

AtiKiver Tuiiimnrnw By Bob Considinr NEW YORK The 1975 cars have come, before the 1974s are all sold. There must still be some brand new 1973s, lurking around in the dark corners of company morgues. But thai was always so, except perhaps during the days immediately following World war II when car-starved buyers would set- tle for any available color, or make, or price which included wooden planks fur bumpers. The '75s arc beautiful, of course, and represent ii progressive step forward in the designers' eternal quest; Tu create a car that is shaped as much as possible like a cigar box. There have been a number of space-age-inspired in- novations sealed into the now models, such as streamlined ashtrays and color radio. Some will come equipped with large vats of concealed babble gum guaranteed to balloon In a fraction of a second after collision with another car ftr an in- conveniently placed tree or post. This precaution. the brainchild of some bureaucral in Washington, will protect the driver and the passenger who is riding shotgun, until the nexl accident. A fortune awaits the inventor of the retractable and reusable bag nf wind. There was a new note in- troduced in the release of the '75s. One major company set an enviable record. It released of its newest cars on a Wednesday and recalled them Thursday. In the old days, as Ralph Nader has pointed out. it used to take months for that to happen.

AudflmaB Skin cancer is so cot.imon that almost everyone has a friend or relative who has had it. Fortunately, most skin cancers are curable, easily prevented and seldom fatal. Of all cases of cancer in men, about one in five is confined to the skin; in wom- en, about one in The high cure rate is partly due to the fact that precancerous lesions and cancer are easily identi- fied on the skin surface. Most skin cancer is basal cell carcinoma and is often found on the nose, eyelids or elsewhere on the face. Like other skin cancers, it seems to be caused, or at least aggra- vated, by exposure to the sun for long periods. People who dir most of their work or play outdoors have the highest rate of basal cell carcinoma. It occurs most readily among people with blond hair and blue eyes. Grows Slowly Basal cell carcinoma of the skin grows slowly, starting as a small, round lump or swell- ing with a waxy appearance. Later, if not removed it ul- cerates in the center and a Dr. Andelman scab grows over it. Finally, if still untreated it may invade adjacent tissue or destroy eye or nose tissue. It seldom metastasizes to remote parts of the body. Squamous cell carcinoma of the skin usually grows faster. It may resemble the basal cell variety somewhat, but the lump is often red and cone- shaped. It tends to metastas- to lymph nodes more often than the basal cell type. Blemishes Skin cancer may he preced- ed by skin blemishes or le- sions known as benign der- matoses. Some of these pre- cancerous growths include senile keratosis. or deteriora- tion of an aged person's skin; radiodermatitis, caused by radiation exposure, and xe- roderma pigmentosum, a rare childhood disease with changes in skin color. Almost all basal and squamous cell skin carci- nomas can be eliminated quite effectively by surgical remov- al. If the cancer has started to spread, nearby lymph nodes aiso must be removed. Irra- diation treatment may be used separately or as an adjunct to surgery in controlling the cancer. As with all types of cancer, skin cancer is treated best if it's caught early. Be alert to the symptoms lesions or other unusual changes in your skin. Get medical treatment early and follow your doctor's advice to avoid a recurrence of the cancer.
