There are many opportunities for experiment and inspiration, but not many openings for ap- plication until the last few weeks of the year.

But modern historians doubt the re- ports of Amerigo Vespucci who claimed to have discovered the new world and boldly nam- ed it America in his own honor. Documents written 1500s are rare and in the rather sketchy, hence they are hard to clarify and verify. However, Amerigo Vespuci embroidered his reports with numerous de- tails. Though in one case he gave a different set of times and distances in a second ver- sion of the story. These elabor- ate details made it easier for later historians to verify Ame- rigo's amazing claims to fame. Many now suspect that this Italian merchant might have been a big phoney. Vespucci was" born in 1451. Early in life he became a clerk for the Medicis, the rich and powerful merchant family who ruled Florence with a rod of iron. Apparently he pleased his GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H. GORES ie Br TIM Ckicm Tritowl North -South -vulnerable. South deals.

A few years ago, C. C. Wei, born in China but a long time citizen of the Unit- ed States, developed a new bidding system which he ap- propriately christened cision." It was designed to simplify bidding by dividing opening bids into two groups hands and holdings of intermediate and lesser strength. In the Precision system, an opening bid of one club is artificial and employed to designate a hand containing at least 16 high card points. Other opening bids are there- by limited to lesser values. If responder has less than 8 high card points, he bids one diamond if his partner has opened with one club. Any other response is positive and designates a minimum of eight points. There is of course much more to the system than this and anyone who is interested is invited to pick up a copy of my book on Precision [Charles H. Goren presents the Precision System] which in one year has become one of the all time 'best sellers in the bridge field. The system has enjoyed a spectacular success in the field of tournament bridge since its inception. A team of relatively unknown and inter- nationally inexperienced Chi- nese players usir.g Precision (finished second for two straight years in the Interna- tional Team Championship in 1959 and 1970. More recently a group of young men from New York and Connecticut have won three of the last .four major United States Na- tional Team Titles. The hand presented today netted a huge swing to the Precision team in the final round of the Vanderbilt recently held in Cincinnati. Tom Stuart, seated South, opened the bidding with one club, describing a hand with 26 or more high card points [he held West made a sub- par overcall of one heart and Eugene Neiger's jump re- sponse of three clubs, indi- cates at least eight high card points and a broken six card suit. Reinforced with this knowledge, Stuart realized that a small slam in clubs could a heart finesse. Without fur- ther ado, then, he leaped to Six clubs. The play was routine. The jack of spades was opened and won by North's ace as South discarded a heart. The queen of clubs was led for a finesse and when West's ten appeared, declarer repeated the f i n e s s up East's king on the third round. Diamonds "were led rext and when the suit divid- ed evenly, Stuart claimed 13 tricks, six dubs, five diamonds, one heart, and one spade. The profit for the vulnerable small slam was pouits. At the other table, the iplayers seated North and South were using standard methods so South opened the bidding with one heart, North lacked the high card strength to respond at the twa level, holding only nine nigh card points, so he bid one spade. Altho South's rebid of two dia- monds left much in reserve, he felt obliged to proceed cautiously until a fit was un- covered. North gave his partner another chance by bidding two m trump and now South chsse to rebid three dia- 'mocds. North felt that any (further action on his part be throwing caution to the winds and he passed. The ten of clubs was opened and North's jack held the first trick. Altho 11 tricks were there for the taking with all hands exposed, South tried to ruff some hearts in dummy instead of drawing trump. The second round of trumps was ruffed with the ten of diamonds and overruffed by East's jack and a club return was trumped by West. By the time the play was complet- ed, South ended up with eight tricks and a 100 point deficit on the deal. The total profit to the Precision Team was points which repre- sented two-thirds of their victory mania in the match. masters. Later he represented their farflung interests in Spain and perhaps he served them di- rectly or indirectly throughout his life. As a Medici agent, it was his job to watch and report the voyages that followed Co- lumbus. In his spare time he tried to learn how experienced pilots navigate by the stars though he' was a very poor stu- dent. Vespucci's version of his om adventures start with 1497, when his job was outfitting four Spanish ships. He claimed to have led this voyage across the Atlantic, though this is not like- ly. Perhaps he was aboard as pilot. However, his records place the expedition 16 degrees North and 70 degrees west of the Canary Islands which takes it acros the mainland to a point in the Pacific Ocean. His claim to fame includes four New World voyages be- tween 1497 and 1505. Each took about 18 months, leaving barely time to catch his breath be- tween trips. According to his calculations, he once voyaged to about miles from the SouthP ole which happens to be on the Antarctic icecap. Other elaborate details de- tails describe believable ex- plorations along the east coast of South America. In 1505, Vespucci visited Co- lumbus in Spain and the great man accepted his version of the western continent. Perhaps this gave him the confidence to publish his stories two years later. He boldly claimed to be the discoverer of the New World mainland plus the right to name it America in his own honor. w Later historians found inac- curacies and unlikely details to discredit his stories. Perhaps he was merely an armchair adventurer who compiled re- ports from genuine New World explorers to glorify himself. At this late date it is imposible to prove that he crossed the At- lantic.

Don't make overly-heavy demands on those offering assistance. A bal- ance is needed. Hiring 45 to 65 parley set EDMONTON (CP) Prem- ier Peter Lougheed says he in- tends to follow up approval of the Individual Rights Protec- tion Act with a conference to determine major difficulties of employers in hiring persons aged 45 to 65. He told the legislature one of the saddest instances in society are cases of men with families, in good health and with skills, who go to a succession of per- sonnel offices and find "there is only one thing wrong he's 51." When a society made so much of youth, there was a re- sponsibility owed to those in the older age bracket. The premier was speaking during second reading of the bill, which will be presented for third reading at the fall session of the legislature, folowing public hearings this summer. He said he intends to call to- gether all major employers in a conference to ask: "What are the roadblocks, the obstacles you now face in hiring people in this age group. What can we do as a government to over- come the The premier said preventing age discrimination in employ- ment is one aim of the new rights bill, but said this could not be accomplished by the legislature alone. Jack Cooksou (PC La- combe) said governments drawing up laws relating to labor unions, professional as- sociations and, in particular, Hutterites, would have difficult problems interpreting the In- dividual Rights Protection Act and the Bill of Rights.

Vibrator won't aid weight loss Dear Dr. Lamb I have read somewhere that it is dan- gerous to sit too close to the TV and I cause my am grandchildren con- stantly sit in front of the TV set Is this hard on their eyes? Dear Reader The Ameri- can Optometric Assn. re- cently published a little pam- phlet on this and they point out that under proper conditions to lose is about seven or eight pounds. It seems I can't do that even with watching what I eat. I never eat sweets or use sugar in my tea or coffee. I have been told that a belt vibrator will give me enough exercise to use up the calories I take in. Could you tell rne how many calories a day I would burn up with the TV isn't as much a strain j about 20 minutes on the best on the eyes as close work such vibrator, as readiig or sewing. Further they state it doesn't hurt the child to sit up close, but he will be beiter off sitting at a dis- tance of at least five times the width of the screen. This pro- vides a sharper and better de- fined picture. Normal room lighting and avoiding glare is all right for the lighting condi- tions and it is good to have the television set in direct line with the sight to prevent assuming uncomforable body positions which can be tiring. Children who persist in sitting up close to the TV set are sometimes nearsighted and probably need an eye examination. There has been at least one well-documented bad effect from children watching TV and that is in the children who do it persistently eliminating nor- mal physical activity and play. They become so inactive that they get weak and their mus- cles tire easily and they expe- rience a constant sensation of fatigue, just like the office worker who doesn't get any physical activity. Children who have headaches and excessive fatigue were found to have the TV problem too much TV and not enough physical activ- ity. The treatment for that is fairly obvious. Dear Dr. Lamb All I need Dear Reader You will be lucky if you burn up any cal- ,ories on the vibrator. The only way that one burns up cal- ories is by doing muscular ex- ercise or something that will actually increase metabolism of the body. Vibrators really don't do either. They make a lot of people feel better and sometimes they help with ton- ing up muscles. Why don't you just add 30 minutes of walking a day to your regular physical activity, and be careful not to add any- thing else to your diet. If you just walk 30 minutes a day ev- ery day, the probabilities are that your seven or eight pounds will be gone in a year's time.
