I have had angina about 2'j years, but in the last year have not bad an angina attack. When I lift or work too fast I get short of j life.

There is no evidence that low thyroid lumtiioa is inherited Even if a woman is diagnosed as having low thyroid function after her children are bom it is doubtful thai she would have suddenly. The thing" to" had seriously low thyroid func- that instance is to call your', tion during a successful prog- doclor.

Anyone who has had any anginal attacks for six months or a year shouldn't be taking nitrogylcerin tablets even if they start having chest pains function and mental ability? Is it inherited later in life by chil- dren born to a woman thyroid deficiency. Dear Reader the thy- roid hormone is essential to thyroid [unction, however, doesn't mean that no hormone is produced. In long-standing cases of markedly decreased thyroid function some pateints can even develop coma. And such severe thyroid depression can lead to "myxedema mad- nancy.

Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to JoAnne Berkenstouk, age G, of Allen- lown, Pennsylvania, for her question: Is there really a bread tree? Imagine picking a loaf of bread from a tall tree in your own backyard. Suppose that friendly tree also had a supply of tiueads for making cloth un- der its bark. And suppose, if you chopped it down, ils sturdy wood could be used to make fine, bard furniture. Surely such an impossible tree belongs on Ihe imaginary Big Rock Candy Mountain. Not at all. It really grows in this world and people call it the breadfruit tree. The real, live breadfniit tree grows in rich, well-drained soil where the climate is cxlra warm and rnoisl. If you lived on a Pacific Island not far from When it grows height, the kindly about feet tall. to its full tree stands Ils smooth trunk is bare until it reaches up about 20 feet or so, then it spreads out its wide, shady branches. It stays green all the year and some of its big shiny leaves are a foot long. When people want a new tree, they cut a smallish tivig. set it in warm moist soil and pamper it untu it grows of its own. But it will not be ready to give ils friendly loaves for several I years. The lucky people who live where the breadfruit Iree grows depend on its starchy food, just as we depend an the starchy cereals in our loaves of bread. They watch the green little ihe you would be used i bumpy balls grow bigger. As a lo it. There the people can gath-I rule, they pick them as they ful to a person who has chest j pain.

West opened the ace of fiearts -which -was ruffed in dummy with the deuce of 6pades. Prospects appeared Teasonably favorable to de- clarer, for if either the king cf clubs or the queen of dia- monds were favorably locat- ed, he could expect to hold Ws losses lo two tricks in the minor suits.

He therefore fol- lowed with the four, however his surprise, South did. not trump but produced the jack instead, which won the trick. Declarer ruffed his two re- maining hearts in dummy and eventually led a dia- mond toward the king-Jack. "West turned up -with both missing honors, but thosa the only two tricks won by the defense and South chalked up his doubled con- tract. Observe that had West turned up with the king of clubs, North's queen be- comes established for an eventual diamond discard and declarer's contract is Etill safe. East was admittedly placed in an uncomfortabla situation at trick three, but there are defensive signals available to help partner count the distribution of a suit led by the declarer. With an odd number of cards, a player follows with his low- est card. With an even num- her, it is proper to echo in the suit. Observe lhat when the ace of clubs was led. East played Ihe five. He followed to the .next club with the four la .give his partner a count. Jfad he payed equal regard (o West's play in clubs, South's subterfuge could have been exposed. In other- if Ihe deuce of clu'rs is a singleton, Ihen West be- gan with Ihe J-1D-7-3 and the ace is cashed, Ihe proper play from this holding is the seven. This is Ihe be- ginning of an echo to show an even number in the suil. When West followed suil In Ihe .ice of clubs by playing ihe three, lie was showing ;rm rxld number, which in the present case could only be three. It Is proper there- lore In put up tho Ung of clubs Inasmuch declarer .must have another club, which may be the jack. When Ihe king of clubs wins tho trick, Ihe. diamond shift bo- cnmes marked and Soulh's cleverness goes for naught rut thr defense caslics oul Uirco breadfruit instead of lo the store to buy loaves. Each fruit is a round ball about as big as your head. It has a rough, bumpy crust and the in- side is stuffed with soft white, starchy food. If you bake it or just dry it in the sun, the in- side smells and tastes very much like freshly baked bread Actually there are about 401 varieties of the breadfrtit tree I Breadfruit trees also grow in that bear their ripe fruit at dif-1 Ihe West Indies and some have ferent times of the year. So if I baen coaxed to grow in Florida. begin to turn brown, means they are almost ripe. Sometimes Uiey set them out to dry in the sun. When they break open Ihe crusty rind, they often mix the soft stuffing with coconut milk to make delicious pudding. Sometimes they cut the stuffing into Ihis slices and tonst them on hoi stones. several varieties grew in your back yard, you could gather a fresh breadfruit loaf whenever you wanted to make a sand- wich. Actually, there is no need to worry about suppfies, even if you have only two or three different trees. You can gather a load of almost ripe fruit and roast them slowly in a pit of hot ashes. Then you can eat them or store them for several months until your next bread- fruit tree is ready to offer you a fresh supply of loaves. Bui for some reason, these breadfruits are not shipped to other states. It seems that we must either bake our own bread or buy loaves T'om the unless we move ourselves to a tropical island where the bread- fruit tree grows.
