South's three diamond bid is forcing for one -a part- nership has found a fit in a major a return to open- er's minor suit obliges him to keep the bidding going for one round.

His cue-bid of the ace of clubs encouraged North to show bis ace of and South's leap to slam closed the auction. With a 3-2 trump seven spades could be made. West led the king of won in dummy. It seemed that 12 tricks presented no problem. How- when South led a trump from dummy at trick East produced the jack. If that card were de- clarer saw that he would have to lose a trump trick to West. Declarer realized that con- trol of the trump suit was the key to the slam. He could not afford to win the trick and nse trumps as en- tries to his hand to raff heartst for that would leave West a high trump. West .could use that card to ruff the third or fourth dia- m o n d stranding declarer with a club loser.

When the astronauts blast our thoughts go with them out and away. The familiar direc- tions we knew on the home plan- et are left behind and there we out in an endless ocean of with no solid ground be- neath our feet. Out in we leave behind our old notions that down is to- ward the center of the earth and up is toward the sky. Out there the endless sky surrounds extending on and on in all directions- What's our old earthbound directions of north-south and east-west no longer apply. we are not lost. From the we select bright stars as markers and chart directions with latitudes and longitudes. Out in on a much grander we can use a similar system to guide a starship. Here at we chart posi- tions from fixed positions on the surface of a rotating sphere. Out in we must compute our position from the inside of a enormus lens-shaped wheel. This is the a vast sys- tem of 100 billion all ro- tating at various speeds around the center. From the we have a flat view across the galaxy and see its teeming stars as the glimmering arch of the Milky Way. The Big Wheel is about OCO light-years wide and its cen- tral hub is perhaps less than 20- light-years thick. This is the central axis around which the whole star system rotates. Nat- urally the galactic north and south poles are at opposite ends of its central axis. Halfway be- tween its poles is the galactic equator. This runs along near the middle cf our view of the Milky Way. When a starship leaves the it must depend on the Galaxy's poles and equator. It can use them to section outer space into galactic latitudes and longitudes. As we travel through our position inside the Big Wheel changes from moment to moment. A starfhip will need a super-corn- putei to chart its changing posi- tions. Setting forth from the it is possible to make a beeline toward the Galaxy's northpole. It is out beyond a dim little constellation called Coma Ber- enices. With sharp eyes and a dear we can locate it somewhere between the bright stars Deneb and Areturus. The direction of a dirmner-than-dim group of stars called the Sculp- tor. It would be nice if the great circles of the Galaxy matched the earth's of co-ordin- ates. But they do not. This is because the plane of our equat- or is inclined to the galactic equator. The celestial equat- or is a great circle directly above the earth's equator. It is inclined 62 degrees to the galac- tic equator. out in the system of celestial navigation we use on earth is useless. for the first part of our space some of our favorite bright stars may be useful markers to directions through the Galaxy. Antares points to galactic longitude 320 Deneb to 50 degrees and Sirius to 135 degrees. If down means in toward the cen- then we can drop about 000 light-years in the direction of the summer constellation. Sagittarius.

Latent syphilis stages possible Dear Dr. Lamb I am wor- ried sick as I think I had syphilis 20 years ago. What are the blocd If it doesn't show what other tests can be What is the treat- ment at this late Please rtiswer. Co-jld anyone catch it from me I'm a please help me. Dear Reader Your ques- tion is one which is asked more often than you might think. People think or suspect that they may have had syphilis early during life. This may or may not be true. let me tell you that at least four to five years after infection with syphilis it's most unlikely that you would be able to pass any form of infection onto anybody else. The disease goes through several stages. There is the initial primary stage which causes generaliz- ed including skin and finally there is the late stage which is the non- infective stage. once a person passes into the late stage he may become per- manently immune to syphilis and have no other symptoms or 'signs of syphilis throughout his although the previous infection may be detected by a blood test. The only way to find out if a person in the late syphilis group still has difficulties is by a rather extensive medical exam- ination. The problem is that a person may not have any symptoms and appears healthy and unable to transmit the dis- ease to anyone but there may be slow changes occurring in the body which can involve the eventually producing cardiovascular the brain or other parts of the body. These slow insidious changes make it mandatory to treat a person who has had syphilis in the even though he may be asymptomatic and not have any signs of infection. The ordinary screening blood test for syphilis may indeed be negative in some individuals with late syphilis. There are other more sensitive how- which can be done if there is any history which sug- gests a previous infection. By the combination of different tests that are in a person who has a possible his- tory of it's usually pos- sible for the physician to estab- lish whether or not this is true. Further including looking at the spinal may be needed to tell whether there is a slow silent involvement of other parts of the body. To be specific about your question it's entirely pos- if you have any real rea- son to think that you've had syphilis as long as 20 years that you could have late and it is entirely pos- sible that you would be com- pletely asymptomatic. It is even possible that you might never have any problem from it again in the remainder of your but to assume that this is the case is a very serious gamble. if it can be establish- ed by laboratory in- cluding blood that you have bad syphilis in the it should be treated as a new to be sure that there is no insidious process going on that will damage your heart or brain or joints latter in life. you should be re- assured even if you should bare late it is not pos- sible at this ago for you to transmit it to somebody else.
