THIS SEMINAR FEATURgS A COURSE IN INOIAN COMMUNICATIONS! TO UKIN WITH, CAN PERNS THE WORP Dear Dr. Lamb I am 25 that, ii) the process of taking a deep breath, your heart and ttie accumulation of air in the sac get in the right position to make this sound temporarily. vcars old ar.d have had a prob- lem with ray chest for several months. I have had TB tests, chest x-rays and a gastrointes- tinal series. All that was found was a duodenal idcer. which active and treated. When take a deep breath, I get a dry, snapping sound near the lioltom of my breast hone. It is irritating and worries me. My family doclor. whom 1 have a lot of faith in, told me it may be the ulcer causing the snapping, but he has never heard of such a symptom in :r> years of practice. Could it be the ulcer that is causing it? The doctor said it might he nyschosomatic, but my wife also can hear this dry snap- ping when it occurs. Once it snaps, I have to move aroune about, three minutes and then dr another breath before it will snap again. Your advice would be appreciated. Usually, air trapped pericardium this way sorbed and only lasts HOW INPVSCREET KIN YOU GIT! in the is ab- a short time. Therefore, if that should be the cause, I am surprised that it has lasted for several months. Incidentally, there is usually no disease or illness associated with the finding and, once the air is absorbed, the sound goss away. Of course, people can make sounds in the joints of their shoulders and other places and you can make joints pop. which may also be associated with (he accumulation of small gas bubbles, in this instance nitrogen. Still, none of these seem to fit what you are des- cribing, so my best bet would be that it is a little air pocket in the demon- trapped in the sac near the Ilrar Header I can't be 1 heart, which would cause the sure what you have, but there sound to be at the bottom of are not very many things that your breast bone. The diag- will cause a snapping sound in the area you are talking about. The most likely explanation is that there is some air trapped somewhere in one of your body cavities. I would suspect it may be some air in the pericardium, the sac around the heart. This usually causes no pain. In such cases, there apparently is a small leak into trie sac around the heart from the air sacs in the lungs. When the heart beats, it causes a knocking sound called pneumopericard- ium. Sometimes these are not very loud and can only be heard with a stethoscope. In other instances, they can be heard across the room. They arc usually fairly consistent and your history of only noting it with a deep breath suggests nosis Is usually made by look- ing very carefully at the out- line of the sac around the heart on cliest x-rays and. finding a narrow band of air. It is often missed, particularly if the air pocket isn't situated right location to be strated by the chest x-ray. This is an exceptionally rare finding except following heart surgery, f have, however, seen it in healthy young individuals and the only evidence of their illness was the disturbing sound and the little band of air that outlined the shadow of the heart. When it occurs in this setting, it is clinically not important. If it occurs as a complication of some other disease, then its importance is the underlying disease causes the problem. Sun moves loo Andy sends a complete 22- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to John David Hufbert, age 10, of Huntsvillc, Alabama, for his question: Does the sun move too? So far as we know, every- thing in the heavens is on the go. The spinning and whirling is enough to make a person's head spin. Our sun is just an ordinary star and it nappes to be just as dizzy as all the other stars in the sky. It does every- thing that our little earth does, though naturally on a much grander scale. It spins around on iU axis and it travels around a super-superior orbit through the Milky Way. We can enjoy its warm gold- en sunbeams, but no sensible person ever looks directly al the sun. This is because its daz- zling brilliance is so strong that it can cause permanent dam- nge to the eyesight. So we must depend on the experts to tell us how it really moves. They do not look directly at it either but get their information from shadowy images of the sun's face. These pictures show' the sun's blotchy complexion, with rashes of sunspots moving from the equator. Suppose there is a blotchy rash just north of the equator, in the center of the sun's dazzling face. Each day it moves farther to the side and in about a week it disappears _.ound the edge. But two weeks later, those same blotchy sun- spots appear on the opposite side. Then they take about two weeks to march once more across the sun's face. Or so i' seems. Actually, they did nol circle the sun, but the sun car ries them around as it rotated From this and other evi dence, we know that Uie sun's equator spins around in abou 25 days. The sunspot belts lag behind an extra two or thrci days. Farther north and south each rotation takes 33 days am the lagging polar regions taki 34 days. The sun. of course pours forth its radiance all th time from every square inch o its surface. If it had day an night as we do, they would las about weeks at the equato side to side. and more than poles. a month at th Astronomers also hav proved that the sun move This can only mean that the along a path lnrough that GOREN ON BRIDGE sun's face turns around, some- what as the earth rotates around on ils axis. However, the earth is a solid ball that ro- tates around altogether as one unit. The sun is marie entirely of blazing gases. As it spins around, they do rot behave as a solid unit. They spin faster at the sun's equator and lag farther and farther behind to- ward ils poles. The sun's axis of course, runs through the cen lev from pole to polo. The equa- tor is halfway between the two poles and the starry sun rotates toward the east, just as the earth does. Sunspots prove only part of the story because they appear only in wide bells above and below RY CHARLES H. GOREN Both vulnerable. East deals.

The ace of diamonds and zee of clubs will net the defense a 500 point profit on the deal- nearly sufficient to offset their game.
