North judged that his hand was worth jump to four spades. At both tables West led the ten of diamonds, won in dummy with the queen. Since declarer had to lose a heart, a spade and a dub tnck, the outcome seemed to rest on a successful spade finesse. Both declarers made the percentage play of a spade to the eight, which won Here, however, their ways parted One declarer reentered dummy with the ace of dia- monds to lead another trump. East rose with the ace as West discarded a high club, and shifted to the club deuce West captured South's king of clubs and, reading the situation perfect- ly, returned his remaining diamond East's ruff meant down one. The second declarer was alive to the possibility of a diamond ruff. After the spade finesse won, he played the king of clubs from his hand. West took the ace and continued with second dia- mond, but declarer was in complete control Dummy's ace won and a trump was led. East rose with the ace, but he now had no quick en- try to his partner's hand for a diamond ruff.

Flashback By THE CANADIAN PRESS March 27, 1974 France ratified the Pans Agreements to create the Western European Union and authorize a West German army of 12 divisions 19 years ago today in 1955 to grant it sovereignty, admit it to NATO and Europeanize the Saar 1966 At least 60 persons died in clashes between Negroes and police in South Africa 1947 Meat rationing ended in Canada 1933 Japan withdrew from the League of Nations 1913 Le Droit started publication in Ottawa 1512 Ponce de Leon discovered the east coast of Florida role of vitamins in our daily diet enough to know that we need much more research into the subject Your vitamin requirements are less than one bite of your daily diet But a lack of these vital food elements causes miserable health problems and prolonged vitamin deficiencies lead to ghastly diseases that may be fatal Vitamins do not provide the body with fuel or building materials But without their help proteins and other basic foods cannot provide these things either Actually the vital vitamins work behind the scenes The body needs them to perform a multitude of different biological processes Often a single vitamin has several functions that seem unrelated For example, vitamin A works with basic foods to maintain healthy skin and without it night vision deteriorates It also plays a role in maintaining tissues of the nervous breathing and digestive systems and without it our foods fail to build healthy bones and teeth Vitamin C also is needed to maintain healthy bones and teeth And this most dramatic vitamin seems to play some role or other in almost every chemical process that goes on in the body Apparently it is changed or used up by these activities which is why we need a generous helping of vitamin C every day of our lives Vitamin B turned out to be a complex assortment of several vitamins, each having one or more chemical functions with basic foods For example, thiamin is needed to release energy in the metabolism of carbohydrates It also helps the heart and nervous sytem A prolonged shortage of vital Bl leads to the dreadful deficiency disease called beriberi Unless traces of vitamins B6 and B12 are present in the daily diet, the body cannot maintain healthy red cells At present, nutrition researchers have identified about two dozen different vitamins But everybody expects that still more will be discovered In most cases, a whole book is needed to explain the various mysterious functions of this or that vitamin However, though a great deal already is known about vitamins, some experts suspect that most of their functions are still unknown Meantime, other experts disagree on the daily dosage of vitamins needed to maintain normal health Some still advocate the tiny traces needed to prevent diastrous deficiencies other favor larger doses to ensure maximum good health Some favor extra vitamin supplements, others say that a wholesome diet contains all the vitamins the body needs One thing is certain. More, a lot more sensible research is needed into the vital subject of vitamins Questions asked by chil- dren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
