JULY 5 Inur Hirlliday Today: You have many different goals lo achieve at once, much to do and liltle time in which lo get results. You cannot afford a n-aslod moment. Family and social activity range to one c.xlreme than another. To- day's natives are energetic, taking a definite stand on nearly any issue and holding steady lo defend it.

Iodine shortage causes goiter buying Injuries on short notice. (April 20-Mny Pause for remembrance: half- forpoUcn advice comes back and helps current doubls. Fam- ily agreement appears difficult to obtain. GEMINI (May 21-Jlinc Dear Dr. Lamb 10 years ago during physical checkup, my a routine doctor discovered that had a goiter. At that lime, he told me that if it did not bother me. I should leave it alone. Since then, we moved and I changed doctors. In a recent examination my doctor said it had changed in size and put me on two drops p! iodine a day. This was six months ago and my goiter does not seem to have shrunk. My husband thinks it is bigger ar.d is very worried. The goiter seems'to be the external kind and only bothers me if I wear a high-necked dress. I guess it must have grown some, be cause until now no one was aware that I even had this con- dition but now, on occasion, friends will notice it. Is there any danger involved? Is surgery indicated? I would appreciate any information you can give me on this as it seems to worry my husband. Dear Reader Yours Is a char- acteristic story- A goiter, or a thyroid enlargement of some variation, is noted in two to four per cent of the adult popu- lation and it is nine limes as common in women as it is in men. Characteristically, the goiter starts out as a small en- largement of the thyroid and then gradually increases in size over a period of time, which un- doubtedly is what has occurred in your case. That the thyroid gland Is now somewhat larger than it was before is to be ex- pected. There are several causes for enlargement of he thyroid, or goiter. One common cause is inadequate amounts of iodine in the diet. This is particularly true where the salt is not iodized. This was once true in the United States acusing areas, particularly in teh Mid- west, to be known as the goiter bell. In a certain number of In- dividuals with moderate en- largement of the thyroid gland, giving them adequate amounts of iodine daily helps to sup- press the size of the goiter and may even cause the gland to go back to normal size. Other Presenting your views quietly works better than bickering if this isn't possible leave dis- cussion for later.

There is a gradual accumula- tion of gelatinousliek material within the gland ,technically called coloid, which gives rise to the medical term, coloid goiter. Many individuals with a goit- er have relatively normal thy- roid function and need no medi- cine or treatment. Even so, some doctors give patients with this problem small amounts of thyroid in the hopes of suppress- ing the further growth of the thyroid gland itself.

Discover tomb FLORENCE, Italy (Router) Archeologists announced today discovery of the lomb of Filippo Brunelleschi, a leading architect and sculptor of the Italian Renaissance, during ex- cavations beneath the floor of Florence Cathedral. The body of Brunelleschi, who lived from 1377 to 1446 and with Masaccio and Donatello is con- sidered one of the three initia- tors of the Renaissance in Flor- ence, was found virtually intact inside the tomb.

An example of his superb declarer technique is presented Inday in a hand taken from a past European Championship learn event. As d e c I n r e r at four spades, there were several Qplions available lo him on how lo plan his campaign. Without benefit of a peek at the East-West holdings, il may appear that success on the deal on making the right guess. Belladonna evolved a line of play that was bound to cuccccd no matter how the adverse cards were distributed. West opened Lhe king of "diamonds and declarer won the Irick wilh the ace. De- clarer was confronted wilh a choice of several lines of He could try leading owards the king ef hearts, but this risks defeat If West has the queen and East the nee, for if the latter shifts to 11 spade when he h In and the king Is offside and guarded, then declarer will ullim.ilcly lose Ihrco hearts mid ono r.paclo. The .vcond possibility is to the chin finesse Ihni clarer has no quick reentry to dummy to obtain club staffs. Similarly if he plays club to the ace and re- turns Lbe queen thru East, even if the latter holds the king and .covers forcing South to ruff, there is no sure way of getting to dum- my. As the cards lay, the latter line of play will suc- ceed, if declarer follows by leading a small spade away from his hand. West is obliged to put up the king and now when he returns a heart, South can afford to play a small heart from dummy, for even if the de- fense wins both the queen and ace of that suit, they are limited to three tricks. Without looking at his op- ponents' cards, Belladonna found a way to cinch his contract against any distri- bution. He msrely crossed over to the ace of clubs at trick two and returned the five of hearts. East followed with the four and Ssuth put up the jack. West was in with the queen and made the most effective return of a heart lo partner's ace. East led back a spade and de- clarer put up the ace, so that he could ruff out his third heart with the jack o[ spades. He lost two hearts and one spade. If Kast holds both the ace and queen of hearts, he must put up the queen when Ihat suit is led from dummy lo prevent declarer from scoring a Inck wilh the jack.

Let's plan n trip ID scorch for it around the world. look for (he tallest mountain in North America. It is a gianl- but we can find taller peaks in South America. Now let's cross the ocean and search through other continents. Per- haps the world's tallest moun- tain is in Africa or Australia, or maybe in Europe or Asia. Wherever it is, we will have lo travel a long, long way to find it. The highest mountain in Vir- ginia is Mount Rogers, which is feet above sea level. This means that if it stood on a beach, its peak would be 5.729 feet higher than Ihe waves. The top of Mount Rogers is more than a mile high. But it is not the world's tallest, or even the tallest mountain in North Amer- ica The state of Colorado has almost 50 peaks that stand high- er than feet. And up in AJaska stands Mount McKinley, the tallest mountain in North America. Mount McKinlpy's snour peak stands 20.300 feet high, ft is almost four miles higher I ban the level of the sea and about four times taller than Vir- ginia's Mount Rogers. But it is not the world's lailest. Down in South America, (here are the i Ancles Mountains and 27 of their peaks are taller than Mounl Me- Kinley. The tallest one is called Mount Aconcagua. It stands 22.835 feet above sea level, which is almost half a mile lugher than Mount McKinlcy. But Mount Aconcagua is not Ihe tallest mountain in the world, either. In Europe, the Alps are sup- posed to be mighty tall moun- But they are not even as tail as the tallest peaks in North America. Our champions are taller than any peaks in Australia taller than Ihe fiery' Mauna Loa in Hawaii, taller than Africa's giant Mount Kilimanjaro, standing right be- side the Equator. But its snowy top is only feet nbovc sea level. The only place left lo search is the continent of Asia. Let's go lo India and travel north- ward until see a huge range of mountains, lilting long snowy ridges up to the sky. These are the lu'gh Himalayas Ihe tallest range in the whole wide world. And one of its peaks is the world's highest mountain II, is Mount Everest and its proud peak stands feet above the level of the sea. The World Champion is more lhan miles high. Naturally people wanted lo climb Ihe world's highest moun- tain. But its sleep sides are covered with frozen snow and up (here Ihe air is loo thin to breathe. Many teams of climb- ers tried and failed to reach the top. But at last, there came a party led by a famous moun- tain cumber named Edmund Hillary. On May 29 in the year of 1953, he recahed the summit of Mount Everest and mas- tered the highest mountain in the world. Andy sends to Susan Fish, age 13, of Peterborough, Ontario, for her question: How are questions selected for Andy's column? Andy tries lo select the most interesting questions for the column. They may be unusual questions thai nobody ever thought of. or Ihe very popular questions Ihat. many readers ask. The idea is lo select the topics that are likely to inter- est a lot of readers. Sad to say. he can select, only one pen pal a {imp ar.d others who asked Ihe same question may feel disappointed. However, most young persons understand this problem and make allowances. After all, faithful readers know that they can ask Andy as many questions as they wish and, who knows, one of them may be a lucky one. There are a few thing to re- member about how to send Ihe questions. For example, be sure your writing is easy lo read. Sign your name, give your a g e and add your address -with its zip code. And, Andy is undecided between two pen pals, naturally he choses one who seems lo be more jolile and friendly. Old Andy is a great one for courtesy and kind words. Questions asuecl DT cnrtdicn of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy. P.O.
