Our daugh- ter, who is 13, has been wear- ing for many years. The lenses are quite thick. She wants the soft contact lenses so badly she is willing to save half of'her babysitting money. If she we are I ho contact lenses will her eyes Bet so accustomed to them their strength that she will not lie able to go back wci-rins ordinary glasses? I underr-tand you cannot wear the contacts all" the time, so will she also need other glasses? Dear Header To obtain the soft contact lenses she'll have to be examined and fitted by an eye specialist. Although there are differences in pro- fessional opinions on the use of contact lenses, the general pic- ture reported thus far on the soft contact lenses is very bright. They have been worn for long periods of time as a sort of bandage over the front of the eye when It has been ir- ritated. They do not cause the irritation and problems noticed with hard contact lenses. Stud- ies have fceeu done with the lenses being worn for hours and hours without irritating the eyes, but I would prefer that you rely on the eye doctor who examines your daughter for ad- vice on this point. I only want to reassure you that it's possi- ble that she" might lie able to wear them for long periods of time without the kind of diffi- culty normally attributed to hard contact lenses. If she is able to wear them a sufficient length of time each day, it's possible she might not need other glasses. Some test sub- jects have worn them day and night without experiencing dif- ficulty. Dear Dr. Lamb Our son has gone on a health food diet, eating mostly mixed nuts, seeds, wheat germ and lots of milk. Every time he gets up from a sitting position, his bones in his legs and hips pop like they were breaking. Could this be from too much cal- cium? Please give us your opin- ion of this diet? Dear Header No, the de- scribe "is'not too uncommon ir young growing people and H can be caused by a number ol factors, hut not from loo muc! calcium in tlic diet, As far as the "health diet' that you're describing, 1 a relatively dim view of it Food fads of this type often re suit in diets deficient in essen lial nutricnls.

A person also needs a va iety of different types of pn lein and he will be getting variety from the milk, which a good source of protein, on the seeds, particularly if Hi seeds happen lo be soybear seeds. I would still liappie if he were getting more proteL from animal sources. His di probably wouldn't forbid hii using egg whites, for Vegetarians get by with die devoid of meat, poultry', or fis but they are usually prct' smart in planning their diets I am not sure that all thes health food diets of the typ you are describing measure u to a good vegetarian's diet.

Ryon Flies' eyes Andy sends a complete ID- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Carol Jennings, age 12, of Hous- ton, Texas, for her question: Is it true that a fly has four ryes? It is true that most flics have four eyes. But the housefly has five, two whoppers and three tiny ones. With all this equip- ment, you would expect him to have extremely good vision. When you try to swat a house- fly, you learn by experience thai this Is so. The pesky crea- ture sees you coming and takes off before you have time to take a good aim.

O10 A J3 The bidding: South North East 2 A Pass 2 NT Pass 3 4 Pass Pass Pass Opening lead: King of 0 Lest the reader assume ihat he has been made the victim of some typogra- pher's whim, let me hasten to reassure him that the bid- ding sequence not only is re- ported correctly, more to the meets with our full endorsement. One of the changes recently made in the system is that the open- ing demand bid is no longer unconditionally forcing to game. This Is one of the modifi- cations presented in the new edition of Goren's Bridge Complete which tho it has been on the market barely a year, is already in its third printing. The opening bid of in a suit is still forcing on part- ner and he is expected to bid two no trump if he is unable to make a positive response. A simple rebid in the same suit such as South made in today's hand is however, no longer uncondi- tionally forcing. Hail he bid three of a new suit, N'orlh would be required to bid Bgain. Over three spades, the latter may use his own judgment. With any excuse for bidding (such as posses- sion of two or three trumpa and a possible rulfing value or one or two high cardsl responrlor should strain to find another call. With the above hand, North had no reason to car- ry on once he was relieved of the obligation and when the opener merely rebid three spades on the second round, responder properly passed. West opened the king ot diamonds against Ihe final contract and in response .to East's encouraging signal, he continued with the three. East played the ace and de- clarer ruffed. The king of hearts was returned, West followed suit with the three and East won the trick the ace, West had played the low- est outstanding heart which indicated that he had an odd number of cards in the suit --possibly five. With four hearts, it is proper to signal partner by following with the third best to tegin an echo. If South had only two hearts, it was quite likely that they were the king- queen, especially since ha started that suit before play- ing trumps. If declarer regained the lerail and cleared the queen of hearts from his hand, the arose in East's mind whether there was a quick entry lo dummy. Tho only card that might con- ceivably serve Ihis purpose was the ten of spades, sr> in order to kill this card before it might be utilized, East p.ornptly shifted to a trump. Observe that if East leads back anything but a spade, South can indeed clear the queen of hearts from his hand, cross over to the ten of trumps anrl then sluff a club on the jack of hearts lo score !0 tricks on the deal. Declarer won the spacle return in dummy, ruffed an- other diamond and led out all his trumps but one. held on to his clubs however and In the end, South was obliged to surrender two club tricks. He did er.d up wilh SO points below Ihe line and a clear cut edge toward successful completion of lha rubber on the next deal.

What's more he is mighty quick lo react lo what he sees. There are some species in the insect order Dipt era. All of them are limited to one pair of smallish, gauzy winps Uie species know be.'il is the housefly. without nifying glass, you can most of his face and head arc occupied by an oversized pair of dark bulges. These are his amazing compound eyes. On the back of his head, where the nape of his neck should be, he has three more very tiny eyes arranged in a neat triangle. These are called simple eyes, or ocelli. Scientists know quite a lot about the large compound eyes and how they work, Cut the functions of the small ocelli are more mysterious. Perhaps the world must wait for some grade school student to become a future scientist and prove why a fly needs these small extra eyes. Each compound eye is a roundish dome made from about duplicate parts, all fitted neatly together somewhat like a honeycomb. Each sees more-or-less the same view of the scenery, which seems like a rather senseless duplication of duties. However, the com- pound eye is curved so that its surface faces outward on all sides, Hence, the small j parts repeat and repeat the same image from slightly dif- ferent angles. A wide-awake fly can see En all directions at once, which is more than we can do. J In addition to this complete i look-out system, there are those j small simply eyes in the back i of his head. Nfany flics have just two of these ocelli, making a total of four eyes. The house- fly has three, making a total of five. Some researchers suspect that the ocelli delect bright and dimmer patches of light. If this Is so, It would he a big bonus. Kven a moving arm makes slight changes in the patterns of light and shadow around it.

MEFO'MAHSKULL- -WHICH AH WILL DELIVER PtRSOHAUX- ARCHIE-By Bob Montana Certain expert swatters claim that there is a trick to their success. It seems (hat when a fly takes off, he must push backward to launch him- self forwards. This tiny motion gives a swatler a chance. Most of us fail we aim where the fly is. We are more likely to so they say, if wo aim a little behind this spot. However, Andy never makes this trick work, though you may have better luck.
