Pause for rest and reflection at the soonest opportunity While it's generally quiet your routines touch on matters of high importance PISCES (Feb. 19-March Get up and out earlv Believe nothing until you re sure of the overall trend Finish incomplete negotiations get full rewards or pavments where due Fun with figures Each letter stands for a different digit There i> nothing so very un- u--ual about this here but tourists do sometimes com- plain Anvwav what is this CHANGE9 T II E V G E T T II E R I G II T Dear Dr. Lamb The sub- uib where I live has no area available for exercise walking There are no sidewalks The highway is traveled heavily and is too busy for safety, and there is no bus service available to ride to a safe walking area I don't need to exercise for weight reduction, but I realize the benefits from exercise I am somewhat limited in home exercise because of a slightly touchy back Could you suggest or direct me to infor- mation concerning acceptable exercise under such con- ditions An exercise stationary bicycle or a tread- mill has been suggested but both are expensive Dear Reader For many people indoor exercises are the best solution for some of the reasons you mentioned, and the unwillingness to exer- cise jn public Many people are self-conscious and won't go for a walk for that reason Safety in some areas is another factor If vou have a bad back you should check with your doctor before starting any vigorous program Actually, many ex- ercises are very good for im- proving the back, depending upon what the problem really is A large percentage of bad back complaints are the direct result of not enough of the right kind of regular physical activity You might want to get a copy of my recent book, Stav Youthful and Fit A Doctor's Guide (Harper and Row) a detailed discussion of various exercises you can use to help you stay healthy and retain your youthful vigor Any number of home exer- cises can be used to help maintain the strength of the abdominal muscles (usually verv important in preventing back problems) to maintain good posture so essential to good appearance and to main- tain the muscle mass and function of the arms, legs, and shoulders Exercise bikes are fine and so are treadmills if you can af- ford them and have room for them You can also run in place in a small space if you want to Just jog in one spot, but be careful to run at a com- fortable speed and let, your foot sink to the floor each time, or run on your heels There is a right and wrong way to jog or run in place If you run on your toes you will injure your ankle tendon Also start at a low level, a hundred steps at most at first, and gradually increase the amount Then you can run in place to music or go ahead and dance to music You don't need a partner to enjoy the dancing movement It's more fun if you have someone to dance with, but you can dance for a while when you get up, and it will awaken your body ready for the dav s work You might even want to join a dance club You don t have to join an expensive one to have fun and get some good exercise Swimming is a wonderful exercise It is usually great for weak backs The water helps support the body, and you can get in a lot of exercise without straining the back muscles Many places have in- door pools you could use, if you can get to them Remember, whatever you do, start at a low level, increase the amount gradually, and do it regularly The key to success with any good exercise program is to train, don't strain Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this new- spaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y, 10019. For a copy of Dr. Lamb's booklet on ulcers, send 50 cents to the same address and ask for "Ulcers" booklet. Ask Andy II A N G E Thanks for an idea to A G Bradbury Bay On- tario i tomorrow) Yesterday's answer- Ann 68 years, Judy 45 Goren on Bridge BY CHARLES H. GOREN c 1V74, The Chicago Tribune Both vulnerable South deals NORTH 5 4 3 8 6 3 A J 10 5 WEST EAST VA7642 VK10 SOUTH K 8 2 V Q J 9 5 A Q J K 8 3 The bidding: South West North East INT Pass 3 NT Pass Pass Pass Opening lead: Four of V It is generally a sound principle to return partner's suit when you are defend ng against a no trump contract However, principles are no substitute for logical reason- ing If the cards and the auction tell you that there is no future in a particular suit, feel free to look for greener pastures Both North and South are absolutely minimum for their ds The result was a game contract at no trump with only 25 points in the combined hands Nevertheless, the con- tract would have rolled home with careless defense. When East's king of hearts won the first trick, he paused to consider the situation It was obvious from the lead and tne three of hearts in dummy that WPSI could have no more than a five-card suit, which marked declarer with four hearts From the bidding, it was also clear that he could expect to find 3 or 4 points at best in the West hand Thus, even if the heart suit could be established, would be able to gain the lead to run his tncks To defeat the contract, the tncks would have to come from some other suit, and spades was the obvious choice If West's holding included the ace of hearts and three spades, the contract could be beaten. Acting on this assumption, East shifted to the queen of spades at tnck two! Whether or not declarer put up the 'ting, he to defeat Lven if he won the king and guessed the club finesse, he could come to no more than eight spade, four dia- monds and three clubs As soon as West gained the lead with the ace of hearts, he would play a spade thru dummy s jack East would score three spade tncks to add to the defenders' two hearts Should South elect to duck the queen of spades, East must take care to continue with a low spade, so that West will still have a spade with which to reach his partner after he wins the ace of hearts. FLOWERS sends a complete 20- volume bet of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Tammv London age 12 of Okeene Oklahoma for her question Why do flowers have scents? People wear flowery fragrances to attract pleasant reactions The flowers produce their perfumes mam- Iv to attract insects Human noses like some scents more than others Though insects have no noses each one also has its favorite perfume Each flower wears the tavonte colors and creates the favorite perfume to attract its favorite insect In the world of nature, just about everything is done on a give and-take basis Most flowers need visiting insects to pollinate their seeds Many insects enjoy sweet flowery nectar some gather pollen and some like to chew tender petals Different insects see certain colors but not from afar Scents travel far and wide on the breezes and insects detect them with their antennas In the plant world per- fumery is related to the mating game The purpose of a blossom is to produce fertile seeds this depends on merg- ing pollen grains from the anthers with female cells in the stigma In some plants, the anthers and stigma are on separate blossoms Others bear both of their flower parts in the same blossom These can pollinate themselves, but seeds tend to be healthier when pollen comes from another flower h nendlv breezes ma> strew pollen from flower to tlower But this is chancy and the flowers can do nothing about it But they can and do adver- tise for suitable insect visitors For example, bees are fond of yellow and blue but cannot see red Most flowers that depend on pollinating bees wear blues or yellows and vou can be quite sure that all of them produce certain scents that bees find attrac live Carnations are pollinated by long-tongued butterflies They wear tavonte butterfly colors and produce favorite butterfly perfumes Morning glories and pale daturas do their best to attract the night-flying moths Magnolias need gnaw- ing insects because their seed cells are deep down in the blossoms Their scent is designed to attract beetles Most but not all flower fragrances are attractive to human sniffers For example in the marshy ditches grows the little Jack-m-the pulpit Its faint odor is like something rotten Actually it aims to attract flies and flies as we know are attracted to garbage and other decaying material Most insects are whiskery midgets When they visit from flower to flower, grains of dusty pollen brush onto and off their fuzz In this way, pollen is carried from the anthers of one flower to the stigma of another and healthy seeds are fertilized Some insects can taste foods through their tiny paws But most of their smelling is done bv their sensitive antennas Thev can move these feelers to catch the breezes from all din, tions In most cases their though very keen, smell- ing organs are in the last eight segments of each antenna Questions asked by chil- dren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
