NORTH Cancer of the liver is an en- tirely different matt or, al- though there is some evidence that some typos of cancer ol i the liver ere more common in j cirrhosis caused by poor diets. Cancer of the liver often is the j result of the spread of cancer j from some other location in the j body, as from the bowel. j Surgery has nothing to offer! In most eases. Sometimes re- j moval of obstruction to the bile duct or removal of a small tu-' mor, not necessarily a cancer, is important. Remember, not all tumors or masses arc cancer.

South opened the bidding in third position with one heart and North chose to make a tem- porizing call of one spade. Holding 12 points in sup- port of hearts, we would prefer a jump raise to throe hearts after the initial pass tho North has only three trumps. First of all, the bid of a new suit is no longer forcing and South might bo inclined to pass on some minimum holding that would produce a good play for game. The direct action offered by the immediate raise of South's suit is more apt to induce the latter to carry on once a fit is shown. As it developed, South had ample in excess to make a rehid of two clubs. North now made his .move by giv- ing s jump preference to Ihrer. hearts and South rou- tinely proceeded to game. Armed with the informa- tion that declarer held a two suiter and that the dummy had a distinct preference for hearts, it was not dmicult for West to uncover the most effective opening of a low trump against four hearts. Without giving the matter much thought, declarer plsyed a small heart from dummy. East put up the queen which held the trick. He returned a heart and West cleared the suit by playing the ace and another trump. The closed hand was en- tered with the ace of dia- m o n d s followed by the queen. After playing the ace of clubs, South led over to the ace of spades to cash the king of diamonds on which a small club was sluffed. A was led and declarer finessed the jack. West was in with the queen and exited with the ten of clubs. When that suit did not divide favorably, South was obliged to concede another ciub loser on the deal. In all, he lost two clubs and two hearts. Declarer should have given more thought to his initial play. Had he done so, it would have appeared more logical to put up the king of, hearts from dummy at trick one. If West is leading from ?.n honor in hearts, it is more apt to be the ace. [Af- ier all, he can never lose the top trump, whereas a lead away from the queen may trick.1 If South plays the king of hearts at trick one, he, can- not lose the hand. At trick two a ctub is led to the king, followed by the ace and then a third round which is trumped with the seven of heads. Fast must overruff with the queen and since he has no more tramps, he can- not prevent South from re- gaining the lead in time to ruff out West's queen of clubs wjl.h the deuce of hearts. Declarer loses only two trump tricks on the deal lo score an over-trick instead c' going set. peeled in the future. The yearly weather is a sea- sonal "parade through spring and summer, fall and As a rule, the coldest weather sets in after the shortest days around Christmas time. The summer's heat builds up after the longest days in late June. Seasonal changes in the global atmosphere often bring breezy days in March, a spell of calm Indian summer after the first frost in mid winter, a warm Chinook wind blows down the eastern slopes of the Rockies. Statistics of past years reveal the exact dates of these and other weather events in various localities. To a casual observer, the fickle weather seems to do as it chooses. But records through many years reveal that its sea- sonal patterns do not vary by very much. For example, the Weather Bureau issues the dates v.hcn the first and last frosls can be expected in your locality. This prediction is bas- ed on weather events through j many years. True, next year may be an exception. The last frost may come a week after you were fold it was safe to sow your vegetable seeds. In this case the local prediction will be j An rlmanae uses these and i hundreds of other weather pat- terns of the past. All the de- it ailed evidence of past records i is charted for each locality. The rest is siatistics, based on the 1 theory that whatever usually happened on a certain date is quite likely to be repeated. Tin's statistical system is not per- feet. But it does tend to be ac- i curate in predicting more than half the weather everts through the coming year. Historians suspect that alma- nacs were invented thousands years ago by Eastern as- tronomers. They predicted the phases of the moon, eclipses and the location of the planets. Later almanacs included useful information for farmers. Spe- cial almanacs for sailors in- cluded tides and wind charts. Weather predictions were add- ed to almanacs of the last cen- tury. And our modem alma- nacs base their surprisingly ac- curate predictions on careful statistics dravn from half a century.
