South jumped to three spades to show his good suit and excellent hand. When North bid Ms second suit, South became interested in slam. He indicated this with a cue-bid of five clubs, and Ul North judged well when be gave full weight to his single- ton and two trumps and leaped to the spade slam. At both tables, the opening lead was the queen of clubs, won by the ace. At the first table, South could see no fur- ther than to hope for an even diamond division, in which case his only loser would be a diamond. Accordingly, be drew trumps and then tried a diamond to the ace and a diamond back. West grate- fully cashed two diamond tricks for down one. At the other table, de- clarer realized that there was the additional possibility of developing the heart suit for two diamond discards. How- Lawrence Lamb M.D. DEAR DR. LAMB Recently my husband has been bothered by chest pains, numbness in the arm, and stomach disorders. He went for a check-up and the doctor told him he has a hiatal hernia. Could you give us any information you have about this ailment? His doctor said very little could be done about it except to raise his head up while sleeping and to take medication for the acid in his stomach He is 37 years old. DEAR READER I have discussed this problem before, but since there are still so many letters asking about it, HI hit the highlights. It is best described as an enlargement of the normal hole in the diaphragm where the esophagus tube passes through it to the stomach. As a result, a portion of the stomach literally hemiates through the hole into the chest cavity There is normally a complex closure mechanism at the top of the stomach. When it herniates through the daiphragm, this closure mechanism is faulty. When you lie down, then the contents in the stomach tend to leak backward into the lower esophagus. The acid stomach contents in the lower esophagus area cause "heartburn." The her- nia can sometimes cause aching in the chest and even pains in the arm. However, this must be separated from heart problems It can also cause faintness These symp- toms occur when the stomach is actually pushing through the enlarged hole So, what can you do about it' Raising the head of the bed is important In fact, any time the person lies down the head should be elevated in such a manner, that the chest is up whole idea is to make it dif- ficult for the stomach, or a portion of it. to slide through the hole into the chest. Medicine to control the stomach acid is also helpful. In that way. if anything leaks back, it won't burn as much. Then a person should be careful to eliminate all measures that will compress the abdomen. That means not wearing tight belts, girdles, or constricting garments. Then it is important not to bend over. Any movement that compresses the abdomen or lowers the chest is apt to cause the hernia to occur and cause syptoms. It follows that these people should only eat small meals, perhaps at more frequent intervals, and the last meal of the day should be low in fat and of small volume. That is so the stomach will empty completely before going to bed. It is best not to lie down until at least two hours after any meal. If there are any foods that form gas or dis- tension, they should be eliminated from the diet. Finally, any obesity should be eliminated. And in selected cases when the problem warrants it and there are no other important problems, surgery is sometimes useful. Now, I can't verify your husband's diagnosis An ex- amination is necessary to es- tablish that as the problem. If this is bis difficulty, these measures should help him to get along better.

Ask Andy A LOOK AT JUPITER Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Michelle Casados, age 10, of Huntington Beach, California, for her question: What did little Pioneer learn about Jupiter? Even space scientists win some and lose some. Comet Kohoutek was a dismal disappointment. But meantime, out by Jupiter, Pioneer 10 performed one of the greatest man-made miracles that ever happened. For almost two years, the little space probe travelled through the Solar System to make a close-up survey of the giant planet. And the mission was far, far more successful than anybody dared hope. At its closest, Pioneer was only miles from giant Jupiter, which is much closer than we are to the moon. Every moment, its busy instruments took records and relayed them back home. In two weeks during the close flyby, it relayed enough information to fill pages of jtextbook material. Scientists need several months to sift and sort all these coded signals and assemble the results. So we must wait a while for all the new information on Jupiter. At present we can report only a few of the surprises. For one thing, Jupi- ter's great globe is somewhat probe's delicate instruments. The busy meters signaled that things were much, much worse than expected. For a while, the waiting scientists almost gave up hope that Pioneer could survive. As it approached, the radiation grew strong enough to kill a person, then mounted to times stronger. The space craft's safety margin dropped to one per cent. Then, just as all seemed lost, the little space traveller swerved and swooped away to safety travelling faster than any man-made vehicle had ever travelled before. Scientists are eager to translate the reports on the mysterious Great Red Spot and on many other features of the big planet and its moons. Thanks to Pioneer, we now know that the Jovian moon 10 has an atmosphere and seems to be covered with an ice field, perhaps of frozen methane ever, the problem was entries flattened than was to dummy. After winning the supposed. And the big planet ace of clubs, declarer drew one round of trumps and then tested the hearts by cashing the ace and king, discarding a diamond from Ms hand, and raffing a heart When everyone followed, it was dear that the fifth heart could be established. To get to the dummy, de- clarer played the king of ebbs and ruffed it! Another heart was tod and ruffed, and tramps were drawn in two Declarer entered dummy with the ace of dia- monds and discarded a sec- ond diamond on the fifth heart. Thus, his only loser was a diamond, for a wen earned gam. sheds two and a half tunes more radiation than it gets from the sun a mystery which may or may not be explained 'later. Thanks to Pioneer, we know that Jupi- ter is fairly warm and that its day and night temperatures are about equal. For some strange reason, some of its dense cloud belts are 15 degrees cooler than others. Pioneer also learned that the thick Jovian atmosphere contains some helium. But the first big surprises were outside, around the big planet. Scientists half expected a forceful magnetic field and some hard radiation, maybe like Earth's Van Alien belts. Such fierce energies could damage the space The greatest wonder was the flyby. It seemed logical that a space craft could swerve around a planet and borrow gravitational energy to speed it on its way. Pioneer tested and proved this possible. Still relaying reports, it travels on to cross Saturn's orbit in 1976 and the orbit of Uranus in 1979. Then, as its instruments fade away, it heads out toward the constellation Taurus, carrying a plaque with a message from Earth. If all goes well, in 10 million years or so, it may deliver that message to some other populated planet in the Universe. QuMtluiM asked by cMM- of rawtorsahOMld malted to Ask Andy, 7tS.
