MIDDLE-CLASS ANIMALS By Hugh Laidman Q is the cause and treatment of Cushings syn- drome? What is the adiposogen- syndrome? What is the adrenogenital syndrome? A Cushing's syndrome is caused by overaclivity of the adrenals. The underlying cause may be a defect in a part of the brain called the hypothalamus (70 per cent of the a Planetary System Found BRIGHTON, England (AP) A British astronomer says he has found a planetary system forming around a larger 'star, Espilon Aurigae, far out space. If confirmed, this would be the first time a planetary sys- tem similar to that of the sun's had been found in the galaxy al- though astronomers for years have observed stars where they believed systems might be forming. Prof. Z d e n e k Kopal an- nounced his findings Friday at the Intrenational Astronomical Union conference. Kopal, a pi'ofessor of astro- omy at Manchester University, said the system's main star, Epsilon Aurigae, is 20 times as big as the sun and light years away. A light year is the distance light will travel in one year. The star is surrounded by a disc of matter million miles across and has been in- triguing scientists for 40 years. Kopal told the conference lit- tle is known about Epsilon Auri- gae, apart from the fact that ii is made up of solid particles and not gases as was originally believed. He said the particles include some equalling the size of small planets.

The result is a tendency to waterlogging, easy fatigability, weakness, irritability, depres- sion and excessive growth of lair over much of the body. The treatment would depend on the underlying cause. Amino- glutethamide (Elipten) may be lelpful but in many cases re- moval of the tumor is the only satisfactory treatment. The adiposogenital (1-roe- Ikh's) syndrome is another dis- turbance of the hypothalamus and pituitary. It is congenital and is characterized by obesity and failure to mature sexually. In the adrenogenital syn- drome there is a congenital in- crease in the adrenal cortex and an increase hi male hor- mone. Q _ Would an adrenal tumor the size of a golfball cause one a feel pepless? A Weakness and easy fati- gability are commonly seen in persons with an adrenal tumor even tumors that are much smaller than a golf ball. Q What are tlie symptoms of senility? At what age do they appear? A Although aging affects all parts of the body, they are not necessarily affected at a uniform rate. The most trouble- some symptoms are those af- fecting the brain. They are not the direct effect of age but are caused by impaired circulation, usually due to hardening of the arteries. They are evident in some persons at 40 while others escape well into their 90s or be- yond. There is usually a gradufl loss of memory which is most acute for recent events The Robbery Victim Tongue-Dials For Help SEATTLE (AP) Seattle doctor Glen E.

While he lacks the normal requirements (or a bid, in third seat a player is permitted to shade his call in an attempt to compels for a part score or else, to secure a particular lead. In the present case, it was not difficult for East to foresee the desirability of inducing his partner to open 3 diamond in the event that South became the declarer. Aitho a diamond defense a quick decision inas- much as West can trump the third round, the latter was not inclined to seek a ruif holding three clubs headed by the queen-jack. He, therefore, made the natural lead of the jack of hearts against five clubs, A small heart was played from dummy and South ruffed in his hand.

South resolved to single in as many tricks as he could before surrendering the initia- tive. The ace of hearts was cashed on which the deuce of diamonds was discarded and a heart was ruffed in the closed hand. Dummy was reentered with the king of spades to trump another heart. The ace and queea ut spades were cashed and a spade ruffed with the six of clubs for South's 10th trick sis West continued to follow suit helplessly. Now when the last heart was led from dummy, declarer scored with his remaining trump the ten of clubs as West played the king of hearts. South cheerfully conceded the last two tricks to the opposition. In all, lie took three spades a snfde ruff, two top clubs, the ace of hearts and lour heart ruffs io his band.
