Each letter stands for a dif- ferent digit, so what must our smallest BOTTLES be? LET'S RECYCLE RECYCLE A L L BOTTLES Thanks for an idea to Pollu- tion Solution, Toronto, Ontario. (Answer tomorrow) school housekeepers file pay suit BUTTE, Mont. (AP) A suit charging Montana Slate University with discriminating against women housekeepers has been in U.S. Disiricl Court here. The U.S. department of labor action is based on an allega- tion that housekeepers at the Bozeman school receive pay than male custodians, yet perform work that requires equal skills and responsibility. The suit involves 20 house- keepers, and a labor deparl- ment spokesman said that the amount .claimed due to the fe- male employees may exceed Dear Ur. Lamb I am 25 years o'A, five foot seven, and weigh 12B pounds and have had ono child. I have worked on my feet quite a bit in factories and department stores. My problem is varicose veins. Ba- lunrt my knees a few veins are stafiing to protrude and there are quite a few broken veins above the Knee on the back side of my thigh. I would like to know if there is anything I can do for these and if there is anything 1 can c'o lo stop them from forming any more. I have been told exercise sandals or support hose would help, but I wanted to ask you before in- vesting in something that would do more harm than good. Dear Reader 1 receive many letters asking about va- ricose veins. Sometimes they result from inflammation of the veins (thrombophlebitis) b u usually they are ca'jssd by a inherent weakness from birth There is a sirong familial ten dency to have them. The largi dilated varicose veins in the legs sometimes occur as earl) as puberty, but more often the; occur during pregnancy ant persist thereafter. The veins in the legs hav little one-way valves which ae lite flood gates and open in one direction with the current of blood flow but clcss ta prevent bload from flowing backward toward the ankle, when the veins dilate the valve leaflets no longer fit and the bload can run backward to accumulate in the legs. A few dilated veins in the BflJiiiN, THIStfMYSSOTHEK, A LI7TCE KIP LIKETHAT? legs do not mean that there is a problem with the circulation if the rest of the veins are all There are major sets of leg veins, tliose just under- nerth the sk'n and the dceii veins inside the leg muscles. When bo'.h the superficial and deep veins are dilated there is a grea'er tendency for the lood to stagnate in the veins vhen one is standing. Fluid eeps out of the vein's into the issues around the ankle, caus- ng swelling and discoloration, Most people have superfi- cial varicose veins without swelling or other difficulties I'hieh require treatment. You don't need special shoes or even upiiort hose for minor dilated nor will these prevent regression. Individuals who i a v e markedly dilated veins causing swelling of the'feet and ankles should wear some form of tuiport hosiery or elastic jatidages properly fitted. Good external support prevents the accumulation of Wood.' When a person is standing this external pressure helps and while walk- ing the tight pressure around the leg and Ihe contraction of the leg muscles helps; to milk the blood up the leg. Deciding whether a person needs anything done about vari- cose veins or not requires an examination. 'doctor needs lo know how the deep veins are functioning as well os those just beneath the skin. The superficial veins' can be stripped out by an operation. If the deep veins are .involved even after the operation elas- tic support will be needed. When only the superficial veins are involved the results are us- ually better. While you may not be able to prevent varicose veins, preg- nancy, ooesity and prolonged standing arc factors in their occurrence. I think regular exercise of the leg muscles with good walking helps main- tain muscle support around the veins. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this news- paper, P.O.

The auction was direct. South, having 25 points In high cards and including an extra point for four aces, opened with a demand bid of two hearts. North properly raised to three hearts with eight points in support With the Irump fit con- firmed, Soulh was now bent .on reaching at least a small slam, and in an effort to try for eVen bigger things he bid three spades to show first round control of that suit When North signed off by bidding three no trump, South proceeded without fur- ther ado lo six hearts. Altho a spade lead would have assured defeat of the contract, West chose a pas- sive defense by opening the ten of hearts and South son the trick in his .hand with the queen. He cashed the next and when West dis- carded a diamond, declarer (witched to the ace of dia- monds before leading a third round of trumps to North's jack. The queen of duos was led and finessed. If West wins the trick with the king, South is in position to claim, for he can discard one spade on the king of diamonds and the other on dummy's long club. West realized, howr ever, that it would not ba prudent to release his club control too quickly, and he followed suit smoothly wilh the four. The king of diamonds was cashed as South discarded the ten of spades and then the jack of clubs was led to repeat the finesse in that suit West produced the king and exited with a club, plac- ing the declarer back in his .hand with the ace. There was no way to reach dum- my's long club, and, at ths end, South was obliged to surrender a spade lor tha setting trick. Declarer's 11 -m n g was faulty. He should be willing to give up a club trick early in the play in order to retain full control of the proceed- ings. It is suggested that tho five of clubs be led at trick two. If West puts up the king, It is the only trick that he can take. South draws trumps when he regains the lead end discards his spades on the king of diamonds and the queen of clubs. If West plays a small club when Soulh leads the suit, dummy's ten will win the trick. A spade is returned and declarer puts in the ten, losing to West's queen. South wins the return, cashes tha ace of diamonds and the ace of spades and then ruffs a spade in dummy. The six of clubs is discarded on the king of diamonds, trumps are drawn and declarer claims his slam, having lost only one spade Irick. Ask Andy ANOTHER ISROAP FROVV 7rii WCWP OF 67CWS LI I ABNER-By Andy Capp WHAT HAPPENED TO LOMHJOSTPLAY? BOR1N' IN THAT f 'PARK Bulrushes Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Cris Ann Chapman, age 16, of Huntington Beach, California, for her question: Is it tnie that bulrushes arc edible? The many readers who ask this question are not interested in bulrushes for food. Not at all. They are concerned about what hordes of human bulrush bandits can do to the wild eco- logy of our precious land. A century ago, it was stylish to plunder nature's wild animals. This latest fad cculd fool a lot of people into plundering na- ture's wild plants.. The follow- ing story shows how this could lead to ecological disaster and this is not exaggerated. t Once upon a time there was this ordinary, smallish lake. A couple of wily o'.d catfish lurked out there in the depths. The ake also provided permanent or lemporary homes for dozens of other water-loving animals and plants. It was a balanced ecology, a whole world of sur- vival. The most popular resi- dential area was the lake-shore, where playful wavelets gently stroked the miniature beaches. There, around the shallow brink grew reedy rushes ant tall sedges that sighed with the breezes. These stiff straighl plants grew ankle deep in the water. Their roots tangled through the soggy mud and held it tight when spring floods threatened to wash it away Mini-fishes and tiny tadpoles water bugs and ameba-type protozoa hunted and hid among tha reedy roots. i Above the water, stiff, reedy stems grew tall enough to baf fie the breezes and soften ihi winds. They also camouflaged the color scheme with shadow pockets mixed with pr.tchcs of sky blue and leafy green. In summer they cas -AH BEGUM P.EADIN' M AH'FEARLESS FOSD1CK" Cd.MlC BOOK. AH RUW OUTA MATCHES--- cooling shade that slowed down evaporation. Some of these lake-shore guardians were bul- rushes and cattails, wearing vlevety brown pokers of crowd- ed seedlels. Every fall, a troup of hand- some wild ducks arrived. The tall reeds sheltered them and the bulrushes provided some of their winter food. In the busy spring season, the winter visit- ors left and other water birds arrived. They built nests from reedy stalks and lined them with baby-soft bulrush fuzz. Year after year, the little lake helped numerous creatures through the changing seasons. Then came a day of doom. A chatty old gent arrived, a genu- ine menace in disguise. He led a group of trusting children on a so-called "back to nature out- ng." He taught them how to eat the starchy roots of the ushes, plus an assortment of ither wild plants. Imagine what could happen if this senseless vandalism were to become 'ashionable 'Hordes of vacationers would visit our lake, rip out its bul- rushes and stomp down its sedges. In a few years, floods would erode its bare brinks. The sun beating down on its shadeless water would dry up the last drop. The would continue as the bulrush ban- dils departed to find other lakes.
