Once North could give his p a rt n e r a jump raise in South's hand became enormous He wasted no time After a diamond cue-bid and the formality of checking on he bounced into six for unless North had specifically the two red kings as the grand slam would be a poor proposition. West's failure to overcall worked to his advantage. Had he he would have located all the missing cards for declarer. West led the king of and when dummy came down it seemed that even the small slam was a venture- some undertaking South had no losers except in the dia- mond but could easily lose two tricks in that suit. Looking at all four it is obvious that ths diamond finesse will and had de- clarer relied on what seemed to be his only he would have been defeated. declarer's tech- nical skill was equal to the task he had set for himself. Declarer won the opening lead in dummy and im- mediately ruffed a club with the nine of trumps. A trump to the ace drew both out- standing and the ace and king of spades were cashed. Dummy was re- entered with the king of and the ten of spades was led When East followed with a low declarer discarded the three of diamonds instead of ruffing West won the trick with the but he was faced with a choice of unpleasant alter- natives. If he led a it would be into the jaws of declarer's ace-queen and South would lose no diamond tricks. If he returned a black declarer would ruff in dummy while discarding the queen of diamonds from his hand Either the de- fenders could score only a spade trick. What if East produced an honor on the third Declarer would reentar dummy with a trump and lead a diamond to his queen He would have to rely on the finesse for his but he would be no worse off than when he started. Lawrence Lamb Dear Dr. Lamb Is brain damage possible during a severe heart Dear Reader Yes Anything that interferes with the circulation of blood to the brain can damage it. This can happen because the heart stops beating or is unable to pump enough blood. When occurs the heart stops beating effectively If the patient is lucky he will be in a hospital with attendants ready to immediately administer an electric jolt to the heart to get it started properly again. If this isn't accomplished within a very few minutes the brain can be damaged from lack of circulation Most people don't realize that the real disease causing heart attacks is not a disease of the heart. It is a disease of arteries It can affect the heart arteries or the arteries to the brain or any other part of the body. even without shock or the heart the associated brain disease can occur. As a doctor who enjoys life I have always been a little bit shocked to find out many people really don't care whether they die or not least they claim there is another alternative to living or dying. You can be half or only half go I don't know of anyone who relishes the idea of being disabled seriously. when you scoff at the idea of doing something to prevent from a heart keep in mind that you may only go It is worth doing something to prevent by almost anyone's standards Dear Dr. Lamb Could you tell me what causes a severe pain in the the pit of the It comes in and I cannot move until it's over It's like a very bad wind but no wind to pass. I've tried eating and taken peppermint in hot also used a hot water but it does no good. I'm 84 years young and have had this about a month I'm afraid to go out as it just stops me in my and I have to grip hold of something to stand it. Dear Reader Those spasms are just that. You can think of them as The muscles in the digestive tract contract and relax just as your skeletal muscles do. The big difference is that they do this automatically without your conscious effort. It follows that they can overcontract or cramp just as your calf muscle sometimes does And believe they be very painful. You don't have to have gas to have a muscle cramp of this sort. The cramp or spasm can be almost anywhere along the digestive from the small intestine to the colon. And every one of these locations can be painful This is a new problem for so I think it is important that you go see your doctor He might want to take some x- rays to see if there is any change in your digestive system that can cause it be kind to yourself and feed your digestive tract avoid spices of all colas and alcoholic beverages Don't neglect to see your he can probably help you so you can get out and go again. Ask Andy BIRD'S EGG Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Jac- queline age of Society South for her question Which bird lays the biggest One would expect the biggest bird to lay the biggest egg. And this is so It also is true that the smallest bird lays the smallest egg. But this rule does not hold true throughout the bird world In New Zealand lives a rather shy chicken-sized bird weighing four pounds And of all this little mother lays an egg that weighs one whole pound which is a quarter of her total weight The largest living member of the bird world is the stately ostrich of the African plains He stands seven feet tall and tips the scales at around 300 pounds The egg of the female ostrich measures five and a half by seven inches and weighs three pounds Without a it is the largest of all bird eggs and she may lay a dozen of these whopping eggs for one nesting Since ostriches live in lion country where life is quite special precautions must be taken to make sure that the eggs have a chance to mature During the dry the ostriches roam in large herds search for anything eatable. As the rainy season they separate for the mating season which.opens with dances and courting rituals Sometimes a male and female pair off to raise a family. More often a male gathers two or three females. In any he scoops a hollow nest on the ground about three yards wide. This is shared by all the females and three dozen huge white eggs may be placed in the huge nest. Then either the male or the strongest female drives the other mothers away The two remaining parents tend and protect the eggs for six weeks. Often the boss male bird tends the nest at night. The boss lady bird takes the day shitt when the problem is to protect the eggs from the sizzling sun This she does by spreading her large wings like over the nest Somehow the big birds know how the eggs are progressing For as hatching time draws the more advanced eggs are pushed to the edge of the nest This delays progress so that all the eggs hatch at about the same time The perky chicks are ready to go almost at once and in a month they can race along at 35 miles per hour The female ostrich weighs almost 100 times more than one of her huge eggs. But com- pared with the shaggy little this is nothing to brag about This shy little four pound bird of New Zealand lays a greenish-black egg that weighs one pound. If the os- trich could compete with this her egg would weigh about 70 pounds The egg of the bee hum- mingbird measures about a quarter of an inch and it takes about 200 of them to weigh an ounce She is the world's smallest bird. The egg of our great bald eagle is three and a half inches wide and almost three inches long Wild goose eggs are longer than three inches and the eggs of the smaller wild ducks are less than three inches The eggs of our small songbirds measure less than an inch all of which seems logical.
