LAMB, M. D. Ruptured appendix not always fated Dear Dr. Lamb - I just had an appendectomy and was told by the surgeon that it bad been chronic and then turned acute. He found it to be perforated. When I asked what this meant, he told me that the next step would have been peritonitis. Can you explain this? Dear Reader - Chronic appendicitis is usually considered to be rather rare. Intermittent attacks of pain, not clearly appendicitis, some-tunes are noted before a definite attack occurs. Appendicitis simply means inflammation of the appendix. The appendix is a small, finger like projection at the blind Hawaiian Islands Andy sends  complete 20-volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Roberta 01-sen, age 10, of Rowayton, Connecticut, for her question: How were the Hawaiian Islands formed? The planet earth never stops remodelling its geography. The major work goes on slowly, very slowly. Inch by inch, through countless ages, mas* sive mountains arise and wear down. Even the big sturdy continents gradually creep around the globe. These changes occur in the restless, rocky crust. And most of the global crust is down below oceans of sea water. The formation of the Hawaiian Islands began in the deep sea bed below the Pacific.    This geography story started who-knows - how  many millions of years ago. Even if there had been people around at that time, they would not nave noticed it For it began below three miles of sea water, way out there near the centre of the vast North Pacific Ocean. The seabed erupted and left a. pile of ashes and volcanic lava. Perhaps the eruption triggered a tidal wave that swept outward for hundreds of miles and doused the distant shores. But no people were there to notice it. This first volcano was born in a weak, restless region of the earth's crust, deep under the sea. Others erupted and in time it had a row of neighbors. Time after time these volcanoes erupted and each time their piles of lava grew bigger. Gradually they grew a mile, then two miles and three miles high. At last they were tall enough to reach the surface. The sunlit surface teemed with sea creatures. Some of them crusted the underwater slopes with stoney corals. After a few more eruptions, first one, then another volcano lifted its peak above the water and islands were born. Time after time, the winds, the rains and the pounding waves tried to smash them back down. But each time they grew taller and at last the new islands were tall enough to stand securely out there in the lonely ocean. These were the western islands of Hawaii. As they grew, other volcanoes began erupting from the sea bed. Gradually, one by one they formed a Billionaire given oil concession LONDON (Reuter) - One of the biggest offshore oil concessions ever awarded in the Middle East has been won by United States oil billionaire Wendell Phillips, authoritative sources said today. It is understood that the concession has been granted by the ruler of Oman, one of the states at the entrance to the oil-rich Persian Gulf, and includes not only his own territorial waters but the continental shelf to a depth of 2,000 feet. A London spokesman for Phillips confirmed that the concession has been granted by the ruler of Oman, Qaboos Bin Said, to Phillips as president of the Wendell Phillips Oil Co. The concession extends for about 450 miles along the southern coast of Oman and varies in width from SI to 75 miles. long chain of islands toward the southeast. Their volcanoes eruptd masses of lava from deep down in the earth's crust, and all the islands grew bigger. But at last, the oldest volcanoes on the western islands grew old and died. Then the winds, the rains and the pounding waves wore down their slopes. Now these older islands at the* western e n d of the chain are little islets of sand and coral. Toward the southeast end of the chain, some of the younger islands still have active volcanoes. They still are growing too fast for the waves and weather to wear them down. But all the Hawaiian Islands-large and small, young and old -are massive volcanic mountains, standing on the sea bed three miles or more below the surface.    The birth of an ocean island is a great event and from far away, other dry lands send gifts to the new arrival. Coconuts wash up on its shores, take root and become trees. The winds bring seeds, spores and perhaps a few insects. Perhaps a few small animals, drifting on floating logs, get shipwrecked on the shores. Globe-travelling birds bring seeds and other small gifts. It took millions of years for each island to climb above the water. But in only 50 years or so, its dry land is clothed in green plants and populated with animals from afar. Questions asaed by children of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.

In the process, with the pressure inside of it, the appendix sometimes ruptures or perforates. The hole through the wall of the appendix then allows juices and contents from the intestinal tract to leak out into the abdominal cavity. The abdominal cavity is completely lined with a thin membrane which we call the peritoneum. The intestinal contents contain a lot of bacteria as well as chemically irritating elements. It is usually the bacteria, however, that set up an inflammation of the peritoneum called peritonitis. The organisms involved, and the extent of the infection, determine how serious it really is. In the days before antibiotics were available, peritonitis, following appendicitis, was a very serious complication. It still is not a pleasant experience, but it is far less dangerous today than it was formerly. Dear Dr. Lamb - I have had pus in my urine and, after extensive examinations, was found to have prostatitis. If a man has to have his pros, tate removed, can he still have sex relations? Dear Reader - We are concerned with the ending ITIS in medical terminology. Prostatitis means inflammation of the prostate gland. The tiny prostate gland surrounds the urethral tube that allows urine to flow out of the bladder. Inflammation of this small gland is very common in men. This can be an acute infection, including some of the types of bacteria that are normally present in the intestinal tract. Acute infections of this sort can cause pain and even fever. If the bacteria can be identified, the proper antibiotic is administered. In older people a prolonged form of prostatitis sometimes develops which causes the prostate gland to enlarge or squeeze down on the urethral tube at the outlet of the bladder. This is the usual reason for an operation on the prostate gland. Usually, the person can return to normal sex life after complete recovery from the surgery. Drank shellac, convicts die AGASSIZ, B.C. (CP) - Two Inmates of the Agassiz Mountain Prison died after they drank shellac, which contains methyl alcohol, at the prison. John Thomas Bendell, 50, and Vernon Levy, 41, died in hospital in Vancouver. A prison spokesman said inmates are allowed small quantities of shellac and paint thinners for work on hobbies. He said no other prisoners were believed involved. GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H. GOREN (O mil By Tit CMUM TrltaM] North-South vulnerable. South deals. NORTH A A K 8 4 2 VA64 O QJS *�� WEST EAST 4QJ10MS * Void 3 O Past 5 O Pats Pan Pass Opening lead: Queen of * The bidding provided declarer with a road map that clearly indicated the strategy required to land his game contract today. Failure to heed the information he had received can perhaps be attributed to the sheer force of habit which controls the play of a great many per* formers at the bridge table. As the reader wfii observe from an examination of the diagram, West's jump to two spades was a preemptive overcall designed to interrupt the smooth flow of his opponents' bidding. North made a penalty double from which East escaped to the apparently safer haven of three clubs. When South freely re-bid his diamond suit, North was unwilling to settle for less than game. Had he known that partner had the clubs stopped, he would have ventured into three no trump to prcfeiencft to bidding a game in diamond*. A better procedure on his part, perhaps, would have been to cut bid three spades which might well have induced South to try the shorter road to game. West decided to open the queen of spades against the final contract, for he wai convinced that partner's runout from North's double of spades was based on an extreme shortness in that suit. The evidence was clear-cut to declarer that East was void and would ruff in but, with an air of "What can I do about it?" South put up the king of spades from dummy. East promptly put the three of diamonds to good use to trump the trick, and switched to the queen of clubs. South put up the ace, drew trump and then took the heart finesse. When it lost to East's king, the latter cashed a club to set the contract. The solution to declarer's problem is essentially quite simple. The way to avoid a first round ruff is to refuse to cover the opening lead or tht spade continuation. South can count 11 top tricks once he is able to get in. It doesn't really matter to him when the opponents get their two tricks; and by refusing to expose any of his high cards to an adverse ruff, he can protect himself from disaster. After West's queen and jack of spades hold the first two tricks, if he continues with a third round, South merely plays low from dummy again while ruffing in his own hand. After drawing trump, he crosses over to the dummy and throws his heart I and club losers on the ace I ajtfkjnf olmattatv.
