Opening lead: Jack of When the. normal line of play cannot possibly produce a successful result, the de- clarer must rely on n long BO matter how great the odds. Failure to pay strict fceed to this principle results Sn the loss of many contracts that might otherwise be sal- vaged. Observe today's hand South was the declarer fit five clubs. West opened the Jack of Bpades, the king was played front dummy and East cov- ered with the ace. He cashed the queen of spades and then exited with the -king of hearts which was taken by Hortii's ace. South drew trumps in two rounds ending up in dummy and then led. the queen diamonds to take a finesse in that suit. West produced the king of diamonds for the setting trick. South muttered something concerning the poor luck that found both the ace of spades and the king of diamonds off side. North countered by observing that his partner could have fulfilled the con- tract by laying down the aca of diamonds instead of taking the finesse. South replied that lie could not have kd the ace of dia- monds without first looking into West's hand. In accord with declarer's ethics, we nevertheless are inclined to agreqrwith North for the simple reason that South cannot avoid the loss oC a diamond trick even if tho king is in East's that card is a singleton. Suppose, for example, that the. queen of diamonds is led and covered by the king and ace. The jack wins the next trick, however the nine or ten must become established for the opposition on the next round, no matter how the suit divides. Inasmuch as the declarer's only legitimate chance for success was to find the lone king in either hand, he should have played for that remote prospect Dear Dr. Lamb Could you tell me if and how harmful it would be to let infants have ac- cess to beer. Some people seem to think it's great to give some babies beer. I thought it would be harmful. A con- cerned grandmother. Dear Header The alcohol in the beer will act as a seda- tive. It is a drug. Like all oth- er medicine, the amount toler- ated by little people is smaller than the amount tolerated by adults. Essentially, beer does the same thing to little people that it does to big people. Other than its use in modera- tion for a social lubricant (not needed for babies) or as a sedative, it has no inherent value in either children or adults. Some people like the taste of beer; others don't. It does con- tain calories and does not pro- vide essential vitamins or oth- er nutrients. Since taste and liabils are acquired, I am not in favor of cultivating a taste for al- coholic beverages of any kind in children. In our permissive society I would fear this might lead to early problems in using excess alcohol or trying other more harmful drugs. Dear Dr. Lamb Five years ago my son, now 22, had rheumatic fever. There was no heart damage. His legs are no longer as strong as they were before he became ill. Do you suppose that there could be heart damage which cannot be detected and cause poor cir- culation which would account for the loss -of leg strength?

Every spring since 1965, Mr. Britton and his Grade 7 pupils have been sending up hydrogen- filled balloons as a practical demonstration of the lifting pro- perties and diffusive quality of the gas. And each year, the balloons, with a postcard inside- telling where they were from, soared up and vanished forever. Two years ago, foil attached to the balloons for greater vis- ibility showed up on the radar screen at Comox Air Force Base. Command controls were set to hit the button and scramble a fighter squadron before some one remembered the experi ment, checked with the school and found the UFO was anothe; Britton balloon.
