Rheumatic fever can re-appear Dear Dr. Lamb I am 21 years single and female. When I was 11 I had a dis- ease the doctor called rheuma- tic fever. I would like to is it possible that this may be coming back because I'm'ex- periencing shortness of breath and At night I just about sleep sitting up instead of lying down. when I walk even a short 'distance I get short of breath and have some pain. This also happens when I get and scared. It's getting on my nerves bscause I like to walk and ride my bicycle. I started noticing this problem a week ago while riding a bike to town and back. Is it possible for rheumatic fever to come back after 10 years and is this serious enough for me to see a It is not in my head and I'm so tired of this I could scream. I'm scared to death. Dear Reader it's pos- sible for rheumatic fever to re- cur. This is why the American Heart Assn. has long recom- mended that individuals who have had known episodes of rheumatic fever should be on prophylactic penicillin medicine at least until alter they are ma- ture adults. It's also possible that if you did have rheumatic fever as a child that the old rheumatic process has gradually caused changes inside the heart valve that is characterized by short- ness of breath. Basically what can happen is one of tlbe valves gradually be- comes scarred and finally gets so small that it's difficult for blood to pass normally through the heart. This can lead to shortness of breath. There is only one way that this condi- tion can be properly and that is by careful medical examination. Incident- if that is the modern surgical procedures can correct it. Sometimes there is difference in opinion as to how soon surgery is required and of course you're a long way from that kind of discussion until it's actually determined what's causing your problem There are a numraer of oiher things that can cause shortness of breath besides heart dis- ease. 'particularly in view of your your is significant enough that it's important for you to see a doc- tor for good evaluation.

In many schools and bridge is an accredited coarse. There is European Junior Championihip for players under and last year 19 countries entered Shis event. The hand above was played in a match between the juniors of Turkey end Spain. When Turkey held the North -South their players reached six spades on the auction shown. Tho missing three aces and the king of declarer succeeded in making the amtract. North's raise of his part- ner's one spade opening to four spades is largely preemptive. South decided to gamble that his partner held a red and leaped to It would bava been wiser to check on that by cue-bidding five clubs giving partner the Boom 'to show either the ace of.hearts or the ace of Blickwood convention if not suited to this for if North does chow an ace South cannot be sure that it is not the ace of clubs. West was wise not to doable on the strength of his two aces the. temptation might hive proved irresistible hid he suspected that his part- ner also had an ace. West made the normal lead of the ace oC his short' tt suit. that proved to be the only card that gave South a chance. As West couldn't believe that anyone could bid a slam missing three he shift- ed to the ace of clubs at trick two. Declarer ruffed and saw a to get home. Fearing that West might have a sin- gleton he spurned crossing to the queen of hearts to take a trump fi- nesse in favor of leading ace of spades. When the long all declarer had to do was to draw the remaining discard the queen of diamonds on the fourth heart and cross- ruff the remainder of tha tricks. Note that it is essential foi West to shift to a diamond at trick two to defeat the slam. With any other declarer can come to tricks if he draws only one round of trumps before play- ing four rounds of hearts. Tharest of the hand can to cnsfruffed. Dinosaurs first Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Fred age of Pitts- for his question. Were there dinosaurs around when the cavemen the dinosaurs and the cavemen belong in different chapters of the earth's history. In after the last of the dinosaurs departed there were several long chapters before the first human beings arrived on the scene. It's nice to pre- tend that our sturdy ancestors managed to cope with the giant lizards but they did not. e Scientists go to great pains to arrange the history of life on earth in the correct order. Most of their evidence is based on fossil left in crus- tal deposits that can be dated. In many radioactive sub- stances can be used to esti- mate how long ago the owners of fossils lived. All this evi- and much indi- cates that the dinosaurs be- came extinct toward the end of the Mesoioic Era. The cave- men left no evidence until about 60 million years later. Anthropologists have search- ed the world for fossil remains of the earliest human beings. Lately we have heard about seme remarkable remains found hi Africa. These scraps of old bone are said to be more than two million and perhaps three million years old. But let's not get carried away by this amazing news. The own- era of those old bones may or may not have been related to our earliest human ancestors. In any the cavemen would not have recognized them as their kinfoDc and certain- ly they bore little resemblance to modem man Actually the cavemen never had a chance to meet either the dinosaurs or the owners of those ancient fos- which may or may not have been related to human an- cestors. The fact the human race as we know it did not ap- pear until around the time of the which was thou- rather than millions of j years ago. When we speak of cavemen. we mean human families who were clever enough to find more or less permanent shelters for themselves. They were not ad- enough to build houses or though some ussd sticks to make lean-to shelters against the sides of steep cliffs. For many thousands of these people of the Old Stone Age were content to live in natural caves and find shelter under natural ledges. They lived when the ice age glaciers were beginning to re- treat from the Northern Hemi- sphere. They sharpened stones to make scraping tools and used thongs of leather to make ham- mers from sticks acd stones. Here and a few groups learned to control fire. These lucky old geniuses war m e d themselves by their campfires and eventually discovered the pleasures of cooked food. V These or old Stone Age shared their world with a very strange assortment of animals. There were giant sloths and huge hungry wolves. When they returned home from the perhaps an bad-tempered cave bsar had moved into the premises Life was full of hazards and hard- ships but thank goodness these sturdy cave dwellers never had to cope with the thundering dinosaurs.
