Pass Pasc Pass Opening Nine of 4 Man's avarice all too often is revealed at the bridge table. West tried to get rich quick on tod-ay's but found himself in the poor- house instead. The auction was straight- forward. With an opening bid facing an opening North leaped to four spades once the fit was located. West took a took at his 100 honors and could barely wait for his turn to double. West led his top and declarer captured the king with the ace. One look at his combined assets told him that West had to have at least four trumps for his double Had there been noth- ing to guide declarer's natural play would have been to lead trumps twice towards his king in an effort to draw the opponents' trumps before they could ruff away his win- ners. That would have spelled defeat as the cards and South was duly grateful to West for warning him off this line. Not grateful how- to fail to take full ad- vantage of the information afforded him by the double. The only chance to save the contract was to force West to lead trumps to accom- plish West would have to be stripped of all his exit cards This would require a certain amount of defenders would have to fol- low suit while declarer cashed winners. Any chance is better than so declarer set about taking his top tricks. After cashing three heart three diamonds and two declarer ruffed his low club in dummy. At this with nine tricks in the both declarer and West were down to nothing but trumps. A trump was led from dum- my and South covered East's seven with the eight. West was forced to and could only present declarer with the king of trumps for the game-going trick. U'LABNER Ask Andy LEMMINGS Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Charles age of Old New for his question Why do lemmiogs try to crow the People used to say that droves of lemmings jump into thf sea to commit suicide Now we know that nature's animals are brave enough to go on living as long as possible So we must look for another reason to explain why droves of lemmings plunge into the sea The famous lemming'lives high on the slopes of Finland and northwestern Russia. The pretty creature looks like a large fat mouse. He is four or five inches plus a short one inch tail. His furry coat may be brown or marigold with a black shoulder shawl and a few black smudges on his mousy face In he scuttles over the dining on lichens and mosses and low-growing grasses In he lives in tunnels under the snow and keeps on munching the low- growing plants He shares his life with numerous relatives. And their story is a sad tale of what happens when a crowded population multiplies beyond control. The little lemmings stay busy summer and winter and the females bear several litters during the year The three to nine babes are born in a ball-shaped nest made of mosses and lichens and shredded stems Many of those born during the summer are captured by weasels and by buzzards and owls and other hungry animals But in when the tribes of lemmings live in safe burrows below the more of them survive The population multiples and multiplies After a few this population explosion becomes too crowded for comfort. There may not be enough food lor everybody There is no peaceful privacy and the stress becomes unbearable But more broods keep arriving and the crowded conditions get worse From time to groups of older lemmings leave the neighborhood in search of food Usually they migrate to lemming-free valleys across the mountains. But sometimes a serious population explosion sends swarms of lemmings out searching for new homes. This does not happen very but when it many lemmings wander the mountain slopes Lemmings are fine swimmers with waterproof coats. So when they come to a lake or river they do not hesitate to jump in and swim to the other side On their way down the the lemmings may cross several lakes and rivers successfully. But at last they come to the shores of the sea. As far as they it is quite safe to swim across to the other side But the choppy waves are too much for them and countless lemmings perish. the little lemmings do not plan to commit mass suicide Far from it They are searching for new homes where they can continue to feed and multiply. They mistake the wave-tossed sea for a crossable stream and this mistake proves fatal asked by chil- dren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask P.O. Box. Huntlngton California 92648.

Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I would like any advice you could give me I have had diarrhea for eight years I have gone through a series of tests off and on the past eight years All my tests have been normal I continue to have diarrhea every day. I am 56 years old and have one son. I had a hysterectomy when I was 36 I was in good health until I got diarrhea Would appreicate any advice you could give hie Dear Reader Anyone who has persistent diarrhea must have a careful examination'. There are many causes of this including bacteria and problems such as amoebaisis When all of your examinations fail to shofr anything at you have to consider that the problem is related to stress This too can be treated to some extent Still another possibility is that the person may be one of those rare individuals who has absorption problems. These people often can be helped by changing their diet. Strictly for a testing here is what I recommend in that case Eliminate from the diet all cereals except rice and corn and any foods made with any cereals except rice and corn That means you will have to prepare your own meals Lots of prepared foods contain including some cold hot dogs and even commercial ice cream. eliminate all milk and anything made from milk. Eliminate colas and chocolate Limit your intake of fruit and fruit juices This will leave you with primarily just nee and corn for your diet If your diarrhea disappears on this you can suspect that one of the food groups eliminated is related to your diarrhea The next step then would be to find out which one by adding one group of foods at a time to your diet I would suggest first adding the cereal group since it is less often the culprit Then I'd add the fruits and finally the milk group Anyone who has diarrhea problems should not use colas or chocolate anyway By doing this sim- pie program of self-test- ing you can get enough information to help your doctor pinpoint your problem. If none of this works then he may want to give you some medicine to help slow down the overactivity of your digestive tract on a continual basis. Send your questions to Dr. in care of this P.O.
