Some of the world's greatest players practised the art of the pasteboards there Today's play orig- inated in that city, and has become known as the Vienna Coup South's hand is suitable for play in spades only, and he indicated this by leaping to four spades over his part- ner's two no trump rebid. North showed his wealth of controls with a cue-bid of five hearts, which at the same time implied a spade the bid could not be na- tural, for North could have shown his hearts at his sec- ond turn. The hands ap- peared to fit well, and South opted to bid six spades on the strength of Us club singleton. West had a natural club lead, and declarer's chances were not very bright. He could discard one heart on dummy's third diamond, but that still left one heart loser to be handled. The only chance was to hope that the defender who held the king of hearts also held at least four diamonds. West continued with a low club at trick two, and de- clarer ruffed. To prepare for the end position, declarer crossed to dummy's ace of hearts, executing the Vienna Coup, and then proceeded to run all his trumps. With one trump remaining in the South hand, this was the position. 0 AKQ2 10 J 094 K 0 J 10 8 S Void 45 072 On the play of the last spade, West discarded a heart and dummy discarded the ten of clubs, but East found himself with an insuper- able problem If he discard- ed a diamond, dummy's dia- monds would take the last four tricks. If he discarded the king of hearts, declarer's queen of hearts and dummy's three high diamonds would take the rest of the tricks. Note that it was essential to the plan's success for de- clarer to unblock the ace of hearts at an early stage. If you don't believe me, try it for yourself. 111 Lawrmca Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I had a heart attack five months ago. Right now I feel better than I have ever felt I smoked at least two packs of cigarettes a day and I quit. I am under no medication. The doctor told me not to use table salt, but the salt in some prepared foods is all right. He told me to maintain my weight, which I do My problem is I like beer. Is there any salt in beer and can this do me any harm? Dear Reader I have had many patients tell me how much better they felt after a heart attack. It is not because of the heart attack, but because they have changed their way of life. In your case Mnoking probablv" kid ,i lot to do with nnp- .iM'il -i-iiM" ol It is ,IIM ton bail MI people ILIU- to tune a heart attack HIM in 11ml iliiN out No. beer does not have any appreciable amount of salt in it There is not enough there to cause you a problem. I would suggest, though, that you limit yourself drastically Mi olml INU to put on extra pounds, and your doctor said maintian your weight, not to increase it If you are the least bit on the chubby side, you should be cutting down on calories I would prefer to see you get your calories from good healthy foods with vitamins and and minerals and proteins rather than alcoholic beverages Also, if you have had any swelling, or fluid retention, which may be one reason you are on a salt restricted diet, alcohol is not good for you So, while beer is not a complete no-no, I'm not very enthusiastic about it Dear Dr. Lamb I want to ask you about my mother. She is 65 and appears to be in good health She is still working The only medication she takes is Premann and a nerve pill, meprobamate, with a daily vitamin tablet Lately I've noticed what look like heavy black and blue marks on her forearms, they even seem raised The blood seems to come right to the surface. The slightest bump or scratch will cause this. Could this be a lack of some vitamin, too much estrogen, or the meprobamate' Or, can it be a symptom of high cholesterol' She is a little overweight but watches her diet drinks non-1 at dry milk, eats very lean meats, no egg yolks. Please, any advice. We'll be very grateful. Dear Reader There are a lot of causes for black and blue marks I doubt that it is a vitamin problem It could be the meprobamate (which is Htu'ii MiUI undei the name Equanil) Rarely it causes a condition known as acute non- i In oinbuc Uopenir purpura and that means a tendency to iliAfliip black and blue spots Meprobamate also has some other undesirable side effects if taken over a prolonged time All those tranquilizers are not so safe. Meprobamate significantly lowers the safety in drinking alcoholic beverages Since there are so many other things that can cause black and blue spots, she should see her doctor for tests on her blood clotting mechanisms. He may want to use a different medicine if he .thinks she still needs something to replace the meprobamate. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this new- spaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019. For a copy of Dr. Lamb's booklet on balanced diet, send 50 cents to the same address and ask for "Balanc- ed Diet" booklet. Ask Andy FIRST PLANTS Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Melissa Burelli, age 11, of Merrillville, Indiana, for her question: What were the first plants like? The earth's first plants left no fossil remains so we can only guess what they were like. However, we can make an educated guess, based on indirect evidence. Scientists agree that life on the planet Earth began with very simple designs that gradually, very gradually grew more com- plex. In many cases, the simplified ancestors con- tinued to survive while other life forms became more sophisticated. Most likely some of the simplest living plants are very similar to the original old-timers. The modern world is clothed with a green mantle of more than different plants. The multi-green mantle is fringed and tasseled with grasses and vines, clustered with nuts and seeds and berries and gaily embroidered with at least different blossoms. But all this wondrous beauty did not happen in a hurry. Scientists suspect that the patient story started in a very small way perhaps four billion years ago. We can be pretty sure that the earth's first plants were at home in the watery seas. We can also assume that nature followed her usual plans, in which case, the first plants would be tiny single-celled organisms. Right from the start, they must have been able to manufacture their basic supplies from plentiful raw materials around them Almost certainly, they use the energy of sunlight to manufac- ture their basic food from carbon dioxide, water and dis- solved chemicals A floating, single-celled plant of this sort is not hard to imagine It so happens that zillions just like it still drift in the salty seas and also in fresh inland waters. They are the simple, one-celled algae that still populate the waters of the world Most scientists suspect that these modern midgets are very similar to the first plants that appeared on earth, perhaps four billion years ago. Naturally those tiny specks of tender living tissue were too fragile to leave fossils or even imprints in the ancient rocks. However, their busy cells carried on the complex chemical processes of life. Some experts suggest that certain deposits of iron and graphite may have been modified by ancient plant life. Some also suspect that decomposing early water plants may have contributed to underground deposits of petroleum. However, though we can make some educated guesses, we cannot be certain about the plant world's first billion years or so We can assume that during this period some of the original midgets became multi-celled plants. They were small, simple alga- types, stemless and rootless and three billion years ago they left us our first fossil record of the plant world. At long last, the early plants were joined by the earth's first simple animals. For ages and ages they shared the an- cient seas Then, about 435 million years ago, a few stranded water weeds manag- ed to survive, on the beaches In time, their descendants developed roots and sturdy stems, seeds and finally flowers Our wondrous modern plant world was es- tablished about 26 million years ago Questions asked by child- ren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
