Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - November 19, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Tues., Nov. 19. 1971 WIN AT BRIDGE Big George! Virgil Partch For Better Health Oswald James Jacoby We don't approve of South's bidding. When South told us about this hand, he didn't approve of his own bidding either. His excuse was that his partner was one of those players who can be depended on to misplay a hand any time he gets to play one. He pointed out Ihat North had gotten in the NORTH (D) 832 V K109 A It Q 10 2 WEST EAST J54 V 76532 84 4> A54 SOUTH A K 9 7 ti V AJ J K Q 10 SI 8 Both vulnerable West North Pass Pass Puss 2 N.T. 34 Pass East Pass Pass Pass Pass South 34 64 Opening 45 first notrump bid. South gave two reasons for not using Blackwood. The first was that North might just pass four no- trump; the second doesn't really matter. Anyway, when dummy hit the table South saw that six nolrump would be a laydown, while (here was no real play for six spades. South also expected to be embarrassed. North might not see that six notrump was cold, but either East or West would surely say somelhing. No one could tell that anything was wrong from South's manner. He took Ihe firsl trick with dummy's ace of diamonds; discarded the jack of hearts on the diamond king and continued with the East hurried to ruff with the four of spades. He wasn't going to stand for another heart dis- card. South overruffed; picked up trumps; conceded a trick lo the ace of clubs and chalked up (he slam amid what might be described as thundering silence.

Rabbi Wins Right of Freedom To Skate MIDDLETOWN, Ohio (UPI) Rabbi Gordon Gladstone had a problem. He and several friends had gone roller skating and "the rabbi was surprised when a rink attendant stopped him and said that because of safety rules he couldn't wear his hat. As always except when he sleeps or showers the rabbi was wearing his skullcap. "I 'This isn't a bat' and 1 skated said the rabbi. Gladstone was stopped a second time and told if he didn'l remove the he would have to leave the rink. Extensive Practice "I explained Ihat this was part of my religious belief and it was a fairly extensive prac- tice among Ihe Jewish said the rabbi, but to no avail. So, when Gladstone would not remove his skullcap a small circular piece of cloth held on by two bobby pins he was kicked out. The next day he filed a religious discrimination complaint with the Ohio Civil Rights commission. That was last April and now, more than six months later, the civil rights commission has ruled in Gladstone's favor. "What we were dealing with was not a clear case of religious discrimination, but accidental discrimination based on a safety figures the rabbi. "However, by virtue of its existence, it was religious discrimination against me." "Hate Mail" Gladstone said he received "hate mail and other critical reaction" stemming from the incident. "Some people thought what 1 did was chil- lie said. "But I really felt discriminated added tile 28-year-old rabbi, who lias a congregation of 59 families. "I won a personal battle but I'm not too sure how big an overall blow I he said. "I don't know too many rabbis that roller skate." Tile managers of the rink a married couple who confronted the rabbi have been fired and an official of Ihe controlling corporation said he was "embarrassed" about the incident. "Wo had some people around who weren't familiar with Jewish customs or said Golden Tee, Inc.. execu- tive Paul Sacolick. himself a Jew who used lo wear a skull- cap. "I think Ihe rabbi was treated pretty crudely and we shouldn't have thrown him out. added Sacolick, "We're still not going to allow skating in big, floppy hats that could fall off and wreck other skaters. We're just going to make sure our people know what skullcaps are." After you've dressed Ihe holiday turkey, why not dress the festive table'.'

Andclnmn To wail or not lo wail that's the (iiieslion women and their doctors are now asking in regard to possible breast cancer anil surgery. The woman who.discovers a small lump in her breast and consults her doctor will proba- bly be sent to surgery for a biopsy. While (lie patient wails un- conscious on Ihe operating ta- ble, lab experts exa'mine the lump. If it's found to be a beniKti tumor, the lump is removed with minimum damage lo the breast. But if it's found to be malignant, or cancerous, the surgeon will most likely perform a mastec- tomy (removal of the breast) immediately. When the woman awakens from surgery, she discovers for the first time if her breast WHS removed. Waiting Time Some surgeons are now proposing a waiting lime of several days between the biopsy, which confirms the diagnosis of cancer, and the surgery to remove the breast. Survival time following the mastectomy probably wouldn't be changed by waiting a few days. Delay between Ihe biopsy and the mastectomy makes it necessary for the woman to entail the added risk of a separate anesthesia for the second surgery and the ex- pense and annoyance of a longer slay in the hospital. But il would give the woman and her doctor time to prepare her for the loss of her breast. Some doctors say this lime isn't necessary between the biopsy and mastectomy the doctor should make, time before the biopsy to discuss MARMADUKE with the patient the sig- nificance of Ihe biopsy and Ihe options open if Ihe lump is malignant. These same doctors feel Ihat Ihe woman who must make two trips to Ihe operating room suffers twice. Stress However, psychiatrist Arthur Peck, of Mount By Anderson Leeming Sinai Medical center, New York, has another point of view. Or. Peek says that, "Facing the possibility of hav- ing cancer is in itself such a severe stress Ihat it would be much heller not to combine il with the fact of having lost a breast." Injury is harder to handle when It's unexpected, Dr. I'eck declares. Therefore, it's dif- ficult for a woman lo prepare for a mastectomy if she enters Ihe operating room without knowing whether she'll have minor or major surgery. ON THIS DATE in 1964.
