The w.iv ho handles difficult trump situations is simply amazing. His bidding is poor, his judgment worse, and on most deals he manages to drop a trick or two in the plav. both as declarer and on defense But let I here be the slightest aroma ot an un usual trump combination, and he is like a man trans formed Belladonna or couldn't handle the situation anv bettor. Ask Andy A ZORILLA Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to John Horner, age 11, of Sioux City, Iowa, for his question: What is a Zorilla? Surely, said Andy, this Z should be a G. For .though he knew a gorilla, he had never heard of a zorilla. But he decided to check and, wouldn't you know, there real- ly is a zorilla. And what's more, he turned out to be one of the cutest small animals you are likely to meet, in a whole lifetime. You might mistake the zorilla for a teen-age skunk for he has a large plumy tail and his glossy black coat is streaked with white. Actually the American skunk and the African zorilla are distant cousins and both defend themselves by squirting ghastly odors. On the other hand, both of them belong to the best dressed family in the animal kingdom. Their cousins include the minks and the martins, the silky furred sables and the snowy ermines. When you forget his horrible scent glands, it's easy to ad- mit that the zorilla is one of the prettiest small mammals in the world. The average adult may be 15 inches long, plus a 12-inch tail like a feathery plume. His basic color is glossy black, accented with several spotless white stripes down his back. His legs are short and his long clawed toes look like dainty little hands. His furry body is very hand- some, but what you notice most is his cute little round furry face. He has a wide forehead and his large, stubby PACE WILL BE SLOW MONTREAL (CP) The pace of Canada's real economic growth will be slow for the remainder of this year and probably into 1975, says the Royal Bank of Canada. Dr R W. Baguley, economist at the bank, said slower growth means that the economy will likely grow at a rate below its average growth rate of five per cent, but does not necessarily indicate that real growth will be negative. We first became aware of this strange propensity when he arrived at six dia monds on this hand. Notice that ,Tommy managed to make both a "reverse" and a cue hid on a hand that wa.s a minimum opening bid In any standards. The bystanders coukl barely suppress their mirth, for it was obvious that Trump Coup was going down again The defenders took their spade trick on opening lead, and all the% had to do was sit back and wait for their "certain" trump trick. However, Tommy seemed perfectly happy with his dummy. At trick two he ruffed I he spade continua- tion, then cashed the ace, king and queen of clubs. He ruffed another spade, took the ace and king of hearts, ruffed a heart in dummy and ruffed dummy's last spade. Trump Coup Tommy was down to the king ten of dia- monds and ten of hearts. He led the heart and West, who had been reduced to nothing but trumps, ruffed low. Dummy v ith the nine while East v.a- obliged lo follow suit, so Tommv took the last two trick with the ace-king of diamonds. Note that it would not have helped West to ruff with the jack of diamonds. Dummv would overruff with the are and Tommv would have made the t hi- last tricks by finessing East for the queen of diamonds. Sincerclv vours, Kulus Winner LI'LABNER round ears are lined with thick fur. His facial fur is black, set off with a startling white patch in the middle of his forehead and another un- der each ear. His bright black eyes sparkle with curiosity plus a trace of playfub mis- chief. The charming zorilla belongs to Africa, where he is at home in most of the dryish regions. He prefers to sleep during the hot days, comfortably curled up in a cool burrow. At night he trips forth to feast on mice and other ratty rodents, on smallish snakes and lizards, birds and worthwhile insects. When he catches more than he can eat at one meal, he stacks the surplus in a neat storage pile. The two or three baby zorillas are born in a burrow. But soon the little cuties follow one by one behind their handsome mother. She teaches them what a proper zorilla should know about the great outdoors and not even the lions dare to molest them. As you know, when our native skunk squirts his evil smelling spray, his friends arid enemies depart from the scene in a great hurry. Observers report that the African zorilla may use his scent to get a free meal. If he approaches when the lions are feeding, they move away while he helps himself and then departs. by chil- dren of should mailed to Andy, P.O. Box. 765, Huntington Baach, California 92848. (Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1973) Once there were two mice who lived in a museum. 1--------------1 One evening after the museum had first mouse crawled into a huge suit of armor. Before he knew it, he was lost shouted to his friend. "Help me make it through the knight!

It was about screw worms in Texas. The article stated screw worms affected people as well as animals. It stated there were cases treated in Texas last year and 75 per cent of these were in South Texas and the San Antonio area. We plan to retire and make our home in San Antonio so you can understand why I might be somewhat concerned with this problem I am especially interested in knowing who and how screw worms attack. What is the in- cidence and what area seems to be most affected? How can they be recognized and controlled? How can we protect ourselves from con- tact with them? If they should attack a person what is the percentage of fatality? We have two children and since our possible retirement sites are limitless, I wouldn't want to make any move that may endanger their lives in any way. Dear Reader Relax! That article was about the in- cidence in animals and people. I talked to the County Health Department in San An- tonio, and they confirmed my impression that human infestation was quite rare, including in San Antonio. About three years ago there were 10 cases in humans. There was also one death near San Antonio The rest of the problems were in animals, not humans Screw worms are the larvae from the screw wormjly The fly lays its eggs in a cut or in- jured area. The eggs hatch and produce larvae. Being raised on the farm I treated several cases in farm animals when I was a boy. If detected and treated early the animal doe'sn't have any problems. The cattle on a large ranch or animals not under close super- vision are not so lucky. Humans get screw worms the same way. Most of the 10 cases were in children with scalp problems from lack of hygiene. The scratched area provided a place for the fly to lay a few eggs. In better cir- cumstances human infections do not occur. I have seen only two cases and both were in Kansas, notv Texas. In both instances the victims were inclined to drink excessively and would be ly- ing outdoors in a stupor. While in this state the flies entered the nose and left their eggs. So, unless you are going to be lying around somewhere unconscious for some reason, such as from too much alcohol, I think you need not fear any problems at all from screw worms. The screw worm problem concerns farmers and ranchers, and there are national programs for fly control to protect livestock. That is why it is of public interest, not because it is a significant health problem for people. San Antonio is a lovely town and entirely safe healthwise. If the screw worm problem is all that alarms you then you have nothing to worry about. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this news- paper, P.O.
