Sitting can make seat get broader Dear Dr. Lamb To end a lot of arguing in the family I would like your answer be- cause I know I'm right though my family says I'm not. Sitting en one's seat all the time docsn'l rr.ake it brnader does it? Dear Reader It can be a contributing factor. A person who sits all the time and gets no exercise is apt to be building up fat deposits around the body. The seat is one of na- ture's favorite storage locations fcr fat. Then there is the ques- tion of muscle tore, poor mus- cle tone does increase dimen- sions but more noticeably in the abdomen. Many people lose muscle tone in the abdomen from jobs or habits that involve sitting and very little use of the stomach muscles. Location of fat deposits on the body is also related to in- herited characteristics. One na- tive tribe in Africa has a tribal characteristic of a very large seat, which is fat. Incidentally in tneir culture that is a sign of true beauty. Fat serves a useful function for some people. It acts as a pillow to protect the body from external pressure. A person who has recently lost a lot of fat. from their scat has essen- tially lost his pillow and he will notice UK pressure of his pelvic bones when he sits, at least until he regains enough muscle tone to be comfortable. Dear Dr. Lamb Would you please clarify the "copper bra- celet" for arthritis. So many of my friends vow it's curing them and I'm a nonbeliever. Is it or isn't it of value? Dear Reader Faith is a j wonderful thing. There is even something magic in the healing power of the physician just be- cause his patients believe in him. Cripples have walked from listening lo inspirational music. Pink water has relieved a lot cf people of a genuine fuel- ing of discomfort. I never dis- count the psychic and hence healthful benefits a patient can get from faith even in cop- per bracelets. Other than the psychic bene- fits which can favorably af- fect the course of a disease there is no evidence that cop- per bracelets do anything else to cure or prevent arthritis. Ar- thrilis a tendency for unex- plained remission? and some- limes it doesn't return in spite of medicine, net because of it. I don't think cor.per brace- lets do any harm. 1 am only concerned that someone who should be under Ihe care of a rheumafolcgist (specialist in arthritis) may not be getting the care they should be getting j in prevention of deformities and crippling that can be mini- mized or in some cases pro- vented. That is the cnly real danger. Trapped woman dies in lire PINE LAKE (CP) Mary Young, 89. died when trapped in her house when fire broke out. other persons escaped.

GOREN ON BRIDGE Andy sends a complete sJ- volnme set of the Book Encyclopedia to Jim Sack- ville-West, age 12, of Spo- kane, Washington, for his question: How floes a gyroscope help a ship? This gifted gadget can keep its balance when everything around it is Lipping and tilting, swaying and swerving. What's more, it can point a dependable finger in the right direction when everything else is in a dizzy whirl. We use it to adjust the balance of moving objects and to keep them on course. Gyroscopes can guide a ship across the vast trackless ocean and gyroscopes can help to sta- bilize it when stormy waves toss it around like a bobbing cork. t The first gyroscope was made in 1852 by Leon Foucault, the j famous French scientist who arranged a dramatic demon- stration with a pendulum to prove that the earth rotates. This subject fascinated him. Later he made this new gadget so that one and all could oh serve the earth's rotation. He named it the gyroscope which means a rotation viewer. You can check this built-in tal- ent if you point a spinning gy- roscope at the sun. Its pointing finger gradually moves away from the sun because even the rotating earth does not make it change its direction. So long as the rotating wheel keeps spinning, its axis re- mains true. Even if it is pushed off course, it adjusts itself back to its original position For some years, the gyroscope was regarded as merely a fascinat- ing novelty. Then various in- ventors began to see how its built-in talents could be useful. Jn the late 1800s, the gyroscope was attached to an electric drive to keep it spinning. Early in the 1900s, it was used to build the gyrocompass, pointed in a chartered direction and set spinning. A ship's metal plates did not upset it, as they upset a magnetic compass, and it ig- nored the rather unreliable' magnetic field of the earth. In daylight, darkness and foggy clouds it faithfully pointed in the charted direction. I The gyrocompass was just the beginning. The gyroscope was hitched to other instru- ments to stabilize the balance of a ship. A set of gyrostabili- zers checks weight distribution and triggers power instruments to adjust it when stormy seas shift around the bulky cargo. A two-inch gyrocompass, spin- ning revolutions per min- ute, can guide a plane. In three giant gyrostabilizers were installed to balance a great liner. Each weighed 110 tons and its 13-foot rotor wheel made BOO turns per minute. Later the gyroscope was used to build the automatic pilot. When a gyrocompass is set on course, it can work with a team of other instruments to steer the ship without help from the pilot. The old .oy gyroscope went lo sea and took lo tlie air to guide planes. It now in numerous mechanical sys- tems on earth, in guided mis- siles, and into space with the astronaut. Tlie forces that govern a gy- croscope are somewhat like those that keep you upright when you ride a bike. A spin- ning wheel tends to stay in the same plane, at right angles to its ixle. As long as the gyro- scope rotor spins, it axle strives to point in the same direction. If some outside force pushes it aside, it adjusts itself back into line. Ships, planes and a multi- tude of complex modem instru- ments depend on its pointing finger Andy sends a World Book Atlas to Don Little, age 12, of Asheville, North Carolina, for his question: Were labby cats here hcfnro the Pilgrims? Imagine a whole continent without a house eat to investi- gate the premises for mice, without one contented tabby to purr by the fire. Before the Pil- grims arrived, this sad state of affairs existed all over Amer- ica. True, there were bobcats, lynxes and other suitably sized cats in Ihe wilds. And wild Ihcy were. None of them had pny intention of adopting the human family and settling down lo a domesticated life. Obviously the Pilgrims knew nothing about tins, for as far as we know I hey did not bring any tame cats with them. Naturally this information got around and various people set about solving the problem. We do not know exactly who they were, bul certain traders be- gan bringing domesticated cats from Europe to America in the 1700s. Others were brought by later colonists. For a time, the price of one of these cats was sky high. But being cats. Ihev soon made themselves at home with their human families started multiplying. Now the problem is finding trustworthy homes to place all their kittens. Questions asitefl by cntldren of Herald readers should be mailed lo Ask ftndy, P 0.

North opened the bidding irith one no trump, holding 17 points and a balanced hand, and South bid two clubs to check back for a major luit fit. He had the proceed directly to three no if North held four hearts, the suit contract might be safer. It was at this point that West chose to double in the belief that he preferred i club lead If North became Ihe declarer. North, holding four clubs, redoubled to tell part- ner that he had length In that suit and was prepared to pliy t club contract, If that suited South. The latter held only a doubletOB club, but he rea- soned that his side's high card strength should enable him to scramble home with eight tricks even if trumps broke badly. Inasmuch as two clubs doubled and re- doubled was game, he passed, and West was obliged to defend. West opened Ihe queen of hearts and South won the trick in his hand with the king. Warned of the frump stack by West's double, de- clarer resolved to single in as many tricks as possible in the side suits while leaving cluhs untouched. The jack of spades was led trick two. West covered with the king and North played the ace. The queen of diamonds was led from dummy and this, loo, was covered by Ihe king and ace. South led over in Ihe ace of hearts on which West dropped the jack. Declarer cashed the queen of spades and returned to his hand with the ten. He played tlie jack of diamonds next and when this too lived, he had seven tricks in. The ten of diamonds was led next, West ruffed with the eight of clubs and North discarded a heart. West cashed the ten of hearts, but was now obliged to lead a club. The four was covered by North's six and overtaken by South with the queen. He returned a club and when West followed with the nine, dummy played the jack for a successful finesse. The ace of clubs was cashed and the last trick was cheer- fully conceded to West's king. In all, South lost two cluba and one heart. Two over- tricks, doubled and re- doubled, netted declarer a tidy profit totaling 1.710 on the deal. GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H.
