This surely doesn't apply lo all cases. That couldn't be the answer in the case of your son because the liver is on the right side, not the left. Others have suggested that it is caused by muscle spasm of the small muscle between the lower ribs, or even muscle spasm of the diaphragm. Some authorities dismiss this pos- sibility, saying it lasts too long for a muscle cramp. I doubt this refulcs the idea, since a muscle in spasm can cause pain a long time Anyone who has had a stiff neck for sev- eral days knows it is not a momentary event.

The coldest rec- ord in northern Canada was minus 31 degrees Fahrenheit. In January 1886, Hie lempera- ture in parts of Alaska dropped to a record low of mini's 76 degrees Fahrenheit. Alaska holds the record low temperature for the United States; Death Valley holds the record high. This valley in cen- tral California lies lower than sea level and mountain ranges shelter it from ocean breezes. Summer temperatures often rise lo 120 degrees Fahrenheit. But the summer of 1913 was a real scorcher. On July 10, a heat wave sent the thermome- ler soaring up lo 1.14 degrees Fahrenhei.t This was just two j little degrees cooler lhan Ly- hia's holiest world record.

The firsl Ihrce calls were routine and North chose to lemporize by giving a spade preference over three dia- monds in order lo establish the [rump suit before making a try for bigger things. When Soulh four diamonds. North cue bid the ace of clubs. This was all Soulh needed lo hear lo proceed directly lo slam. Easl showed excellcnl restraint in not doubling.

The ace and king of dia- monds were cashed and then a diamond was rutfed with the seven of spades as Easl followed suit with the queen. The ace, king of hearts came next on which Soulh dis- carded one diamond and the king of clubs. Shedding a club winner was an essential in- gredient of his campaign as will become apparent in a moment. A third round of hearts was trumped with Ihe deuce of spades as East continued to follow suit each lime. With eight tricks in, this was the position.

As a matter of fact, this interest in science poses a mighty porblem to An- dy and hLs helpers. In many cases, readers have tried and failed tn find understandable answers in their books etc. This calls for a lot of research and detective work.

This hottest day was a world record. There arc several cold spots near the North Pole, though none as cold as Antarctica.
