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 that North had gotten in the

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 notrump would be a laydown, while there 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 something.
No one could tell that anything was wrong from South's manner. He took the first trick with dummy’s ace of diamonds, discarded the jack of hearts on the diamond king and continued with the queens East hurried to ruff with the four of spades. He wasn’t going to stand for another heart discard. South overruffed; picked up trumps; conceded a trick to the ace of clubs and chalked up the slam amid what might be* described as thundering silence.
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 said. ‘This isn t a hat’ and I skated off,’’ said the rabbi
Gladstone was stopped a second time and told if he didn t remove the “hat.” he would have to leave the rink.
“I explained that this was part of my religious belief and it was a fairly extensive practice among the Jewish faith.” 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 ('iv ii 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 rule,” figures the rabbi. ‘ However, by virtue
of its existence, it was religious discrimination against me.”
Gladstone said he received “hate mail and other critical reaction” stemming from the incident. “Some people thought what I did was childish,” he said.
“But I really felt discriminated against.” added the 28-year-old rabbi, who has a congregation of 59 families.
"I won a personal battle but I'm not too sure how big an overall blow I struck.” he said. ‘‘I don't know too many rabbis that roller skate.”
The managers of the rink — a married couple who confronted the rabbi — have been fired and an official of the controlling corporation said he was ‘‘embarrassed” about the incident.
“We had some people around who weren’t familiar with Jewish customs or traditions,” said Golden Tee, Inc., executive Paul Sacolick, himself a Jew who used to wear a skullcap. “I think the rabbi was treated pretty crudely and we shouldn't have thrown him out.
“But.” 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 ”

Surgeons Ponder Mastectomy Delay
By Dr. S.L. Yndelman
To wait or not to wait — that’s the question women and their doctors are now asking in regard to possible breast cancer and surgery.
The woman who discovers a small lump in her breast and consults her doctor will probably be sent to surgery for a biopsy.
While the patient waits unconscious on the operating table, lab experts examine the lump. If it s found to be a benign tumor, the lump is removed with minimum damage to the breast. But if ifs found to be malignant, or cancerous, the surgeon will most likely perform a mastectomy (removal of the breast) immediately.
When the woman awakens from surgery, she discovers for the first time if her breast was removed.
Some surgeons are now proposing a waiting time 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 the 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 expense and annoyance of a longer stay in the hospital.
But it would give fhe woman and her doctor time to prepare her for the loss of her breast. Some doctors say this time isn’t necessary between the biopsy and mastectomy — the doctor should make time before the biopsy to discuss
with the patient the significance of the biopsy and the options open if the lump is malignant. These same doctors feel that the woman who must make two trips to the operating room suffers twice.
However, psychiatrist Arthur Peck. M D., of Mount
By Anderson & Leemmg
Sinai Medical center, New York, ha* another point of view Dr. Peck says that, “Facing the possibility of having earner is in itself such a severe stress that it would be much better not to combine it with the fact of having lost a breast. ”
Injury is harder to handle when it's unexpected, Dr. Peck declares. Therefore, it’s difficult for a woman to prepare for a mastectomy if she enters the operating room without knowing whether she’ll have minor or major surgery.

Cites Increase In Car Plastic
DETROIT (AP) - The average 1975-model General Motors car contains 15 more pounds of plastic than a 1974 model, and by 1980 the amount of plastic in a car could more than double.
GM Vice-chairman Richard Terrell said a new model GM car contains an average 175 pounds of plastic, 15 more pounds than in a 1974-model.
He said 1980-model ears would have up to 400 pounds of plastic, based on some current projections.
