Paiii in right side may not be appendix Dear Dr. I.amb I am 16 years old and have been having pains in my right side for more than a year. I went to the doc- tor and he said it acts like appendicitis but he's not sure. I don't usually have fever but I have vomited. He said lie doesn't want to operate unless he really must. I read in one of your articles that sometimes at- tacks of pain not clearly appen- dicitis are noted before a def- inite attack occurs. Can this be what's happening to What should I do? Dear Reader In young girls especially, pain in the right side similar to appendi- citis can be caused by ovula- rJoti. The pain is usually mid- way between periods, and is known as the middle pain. More than one girl has been operated on for appendicitis when this was the real prob- lem. Often the doctor has no way of telling the difference and properly concludes it is better to operate and be wrong than not operate and have a nip- Bridge results LITHBRIDGE DUPLICATE BRIDGE CLUBS RESULTS THURSDAY NIGHT D.B.C.

The fact that you have been having several of these episodes suggests it is not appendicitis, even if appen- dicitis does often have earlier indefinite attacks. A second problem is painful swelling of lymph nodes in the aljdomen, which is more com- mon in young people and is hard lo separate from appen- dicitis. Then there is the old problem of disturbances in the digestive traci, including irri- table colon, that may causs acute pain. You should note the relation- ship of your attacks to your cycle, that might help. Other- wise I think the best thing you can do is follow your doctor's advice and be glad you have one who isn't anxious to rush you off to the operating room unless he is certain you need to go. Dear Dr. Lamb I was tolc by VA doctors that I have pylorospasm. I would like lo know what this ailment is and if there is any treatment and cure for it. near Reader The outlet of the stomach is called the lorus and the valve that con- Irols the opening is called the pyloric valve. The muscular wall of the digestive tube in this area can contract or go into spasm like other areas of the digestive tract (colon or esophagus for This is called a pylorospasm. There are a lot of things that can cause this, and it is similar to the hyperacidity of ulcer problem. This means that cer- tain spicy foods, too much cof- fee, alcohol and cigarettes all can aggravate or cause the problem. Dietary management, and sometimes the same medi- cines used to treat ulcers are helpful. Antacids help the acidity and medicires used to block the action of nerves to the stomach relax the pylorus. In fact some cases of pyloro- spasm are caused by a ulcer near the pyloric area. ence of mind. Take a complete change of scene and mood for a quiet, solitary evening.

(1971: By The Chicago Tribune) GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H. GOREN 1C 1 By Tht Chiciia Tribuni] Both vulnerable. West deals. NORTH A K 10 7 2 0376542 WEST EAST M Q 10 8 6 3 2 OKJ54 0 A K Q 10 8 0 J 67 4 A 10853 SOUTH VI 03 4KQ9S42 The bidding; West North East South 1 V Pass 3 V 4 I V Pass Pass 4 A 5 V 54 Dhlc. Pas; Pass Pass Opening lead: King of 0 A neat bit of card reading combined with a delicate technique, enabled South to bring home his doubled five spade contract today. West should have shown more reluctance to defend on the deal. Partner's jump response of three hearts to West's opening bid, presum- ably shows 13-16 points in cupport. If among his values are the black aces and the king of hearts, then a slam becomes virtually assured. If East has one black ace and as good as the ace-Jack of tramps, then six hearts will depend on a finesse. Soulh's bidding had indicated that the latter held a two suited hand in spades and clubs. Defen- sive prospects were not bright because of the unlikelihood- of cashing many tricks in the red suits. Bidding six hearts is merely taking out insurance at Ihe price of, perhaps, a mere 200 points. West opened the king of diamonds against five spades doubled and continued with the ace, on which East discarded a heart as declarer ruffed with the five of spades. A cluh was led to dummy's Jack and East was in wilh the ace. He shifted to n small heart and West nut in the Ion to dlslodit ttii act. A spade was led to declarer's queen as both opponents followed suit. A club was led and Wesi discarded a heart. South now paused to assess the evidence before him. West was known to have only one club and five diamonds. Inasmuch as he had opened the bidding with one heart, it was to be presumed that he held at least five cards in lhat suit as well which would leave him spades. Declarer was not satisfied, however, to stop there. His left hand opponent had freely competed all the way to UIB five level which tended to indicate that his values were highly distributional. This was borne out bylhefactthat East's original jump raise to three hearts conventionally promises at least 10 high card points. If this were the case, then West had, at most II points in high cards. On the basis of this infor- mation, declarer decided to play West for a 6-5-1-1 distribution, If the latter had a singleton spade, then care- ful play was required lo succeed on the deal. Tho second club was ruffed with the ten of spades and the closed hand was reenlered by trumping the nine of hearts with the six of spades. A third club was led and ruffed with dummy's king. The carefully preserved1 seven of trumps was now put thru and when East followed with the eight, South played the nine. His clforls were rewarded when West showed out. The ace of spades picked East's jack, Ihe king and queen of clubs dropped the ten and declarer took the fulfilling trick wilh the nino of clubi. Failure to unblock North's high trumps would have locked declarer in dummy at the crucial moment when Ihe clubs become established ond it would become necessary for South lo ruff fl diamond with his last trump white East still retains the jack of spades, Naming the planets Andy sends a complete ID- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Paul Williamson Jr., age 10, of Smyrna, Georgia, for his question: How did the planets get their names? The names of Mars, Saturn and Jupiter seem out of place in our modern space age. They belonged to gods of the ancient world. People began lo lose faith in these glorified charac- ters around years ago. But their admirers of long ago gave their names to the plan- ets. And the planets continued to wander around the heavens. Their olden names sounded just fine and nobody thought of changing them. What's more, when more planets were dis- covered, they too were named for gods of the ancient past. Sometimes we tend to think that the heavenly bodies were discovered by our space age generation. But our earliest ancestors were star gazers and the science of astronomy dates back more than years. In ancient Mesopotamia, genera- tions of wise men patiently ch a r t e d the paths of the heavenly bodies. So did early Chinese, Hindu and Egyptian astronomers. These patient people noticed that the paths of the five visible planets wander against the background of fix- ed stars. Our word "planet" is bor- rowed from an older word that meant wanderer. We also kept the names that olden astron- omers had given to Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Sat- urn. When the Roman legions conquered much of the known world years ago, they in- troduced the names of these planets throughout most of Eu- rope and the Middle East. The Greeks named the planets for four cf their gods and a god- dess. The Romans borrowed the older Greek gods and god- dess, renamed them and used these names for the planets. Mercury, with wings on his feet, was the messenger of the Is. Venus was the goddess of love and Mars was the god of war. Jijpiier was king of the gods and Saturn was a former king. The old king lost his throne and came to stand for the season of growing crops. The Romans built temples in Find, garbage., not snow, on mountain VANCOUVER (C P) Garbage, not clean white snow, greeted the first Ca- nadian team climbing St. Elias Mountain on the Yu- kon-Alaska border. Jack Bryceland, a mem- ber of the eight-member Ca- nadian team, said following its return here at the week- end Ihe Canadians found a patch of garbage covering square feet on the upper slopes of the foot mountain. He said it hud apparently been discarded by an Italian team that climbed the mountain n few ctays before the Canadian team of Van- couver residents. "The Ilalians left a fan- las'.ic mess of be said. "We're considering making a complaint lo the Italian embassy." tribute to these deities and named the five visible planets to honor them. With the help of telescopes, three more planets were discov'7ed in modern times. It seemed only right and proper to name them for three more gods of the ancient world. Shorlhand symbols for the planets are found in older rec ords dating back many thou- sand of years. The symbol for Mercury is a wand of twined snakes, like the modern caduceus symbol for medical science. The symbol for gor- geous Venus, naturally, is a hand mirror. Mars, the war planet has a shield and spear. For giant Jupiter, the short- hand sign may be a zig-zag thunderbolt or the letter Z from his Greek name, which was Zeus. The sign for slow- moving Saturn seems to be a curved tool; it may be the scythe of Father Time or a sickle to shear the harvest fields. V These five names and sym- bols survived from the ancient world to modern times. Then another planet was found beyond Jupiter. Several names were suggested. But it was de- cided to keep things in the family, so to speak. It was named Uranus, for an ancient god of the sky. Two more out- er planets were discovered. Neptune was named for an old- en sea god and his symbol is tte sea god's three-pronged trident. Little Pluto, way out there at the cold dark edge of the solar system, was named for an ancient god of the underworld. His symbol looks like the initial P with a slightly upturned toe.
