South judged well to jump to four spades in for with 8 points in high cards and a six-card major he was too strong for a mere bid of three response he would have to make on a virtual yarboroi h. That one sign of life was all North needed to consign the hand to a slam. West led the king of clubs to South's ace. Without time out for declarer ran the jack of losing to East's king.

If West turns up with the king of declarer has to rely on the diamond finesse if East has the as is likely and was indeed the he is endplayed. He must either present declarer with a or lead a diamond into dummy's ten- ace. Either declarer avoids a diamond loser. WOOD Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Mark age of Window for his Why does wood Behind the scenes there is an invisible force called buoyancy. It causes wood to float on water. It causes a cork to bob high on the waves and explains why a ship sinks lower when loaded with a heavy cargo Like all other forces of buoyancy is governed by precise rules These rules determine why a certain substance floats and also how much of it is above the water level. I Some of us like to think that modern folk are a lot smarter than their ancestors. Maybe this is so But it so happens that today's Andy question was solved some 20 centuries ago by a wise old Greek His name was Archimedes and what he discovered about floating and non floating objects is called the Principle of Archimedes. We can state this in a as follows A body immersed in a fluid is buoyed up by a force equal to the weight of the fluid displaced. Naturally a large idea stuffed into a nutshell is quite crowded and perhaps hard to grasp Please do not feel discouraged It can be spread examined and explained in detail. After what was understandable in ancient Greece can be grasped by the children of modern man In such matters it helps to use an example and it's only fair to use the one suggested in today's question The body is a piece of wood and the fluid is water We all know that an ordinary log floats on a stream The principle goes on to tell why using four key words to state one equation The floating body is or held by an invisible force The strength of this buoyancy force is related to weight Actually it is related to the weight of wood and the weight of water In this the buoyancy equals the weight of water that the floating wood or pushes out of the way. Perhaps we can simplify the whole thing and say that wood floats because it is lighter than water. But there is far more than this to the principle of buoyancy We want to know why a cork floats higher in the water. Also why a chunk of steel yet a great steel ship sails on the top of the sea. These details involve volume and density. Volume is the amount of space in this case by a wooden log and some displaced water. Density is how much a certain volume of this or that weighs for its size This depends on atoms and molecules and how they are packaged together in different substances Air is less dense than water because its molecules are much farther apart A dry log is made of boxy cells filled with so the over all density of the log is less than water. An even more porous cork floats with only a quarter of its volume submerged Water is four times denser than ordinary cork which is called specific gravity and leads to another Andy ques- tion In any any object floats because it is buoyed up by a force that equals the weight of the amount of water it displaces.

Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I'm a six- 74-year-old and I weighed 198 pounds two months ago I didn't go on any of those new-fangled diets I just cut down on food Also eliminated all fats and sweets For one week I had a large orange and coffee for an ordinary meal at then no more until the next morning. I got so weak and faint from this that I took a little skim milk with breakfast and a little at evening Now I weight 179.1 walk an average of three miles a day. Also go through exercises four times a day I'm very satisfied with the way I have lost weight How far do you think I should go9 Would 160 for my age be too far9 When I walk quite suddenly I became a little faint So then I rest a few minutes It doesn't last but a minute or then I can go on again. Is this any danger of a heart I had a physical recently and my heart checked out perfectly. Dear Reader In general you are on the right course I suspect you are rushing it a bit You have been losing a bit more than two pounds a week Eat a little more and be satisfied to. lose one pound of actual fat a week. A combination of physical exercise and diet is really the best way to control your excess fat problem. Those symptoms you had were signs that you were overdoing the dieting I can't repeat too often that failure to eat enough calories leads to semistarvation with and many other changes that are bad for your health don't try to overdo the either. It isn't necessary that you walk fast and cause yourself to feel faint. I suspect this too is part of your overdoing your diet It doesn't mean you will have a heart attack I want to encourage you to continue your effort but at a safer level You sound like a typical person who is impatient for results and tends to overdo most things. You can walk three or more miles at a comfortable rate or even by breaking it up into two or three walking periods a day. How much should you lose1' I never could answer that question with even with radio-isotope measurements of the amount of fat and the patient before me. The only way you know- how much you should lose is after you have lost it As long as you have any significant amounts of fat around the small of the or signs of a spare or too much to sit you still have fat you can do without A good way to approach the problem of how much is to set a sensible goal and after you have reached re-evaluate yourself in terms of fat under the skin If there is still some do something about it. Still another problem is the change in the amount of muscles a person has. If you diet too fast you may lose muscles as well as and then there will still be fat to lose if you are exercising which I then you may grow muscles As your muscles enlarge and the fat goes you might not lose so many pounds even though you are healthier and have lost fat In that case you may reach the important goal of losing FAT even though you may not have lost many POUNDS. Again the key much fat is under the Send your questions to Dr. in care of this P.O. Box Radio City New N.Y. 10019.
