Sccner or later, ex cry joung student hears something fan- tastic about the Sargasso Sea. It is described as a graveyard ships and more ships lost in its weedy waters.

Sea of I as a tPnri tn hP fivW.-Pt- Il has boundaries tpat arc even this type tend to be exaggerat ed or perhaps pure fantasy. If the fabulous place is not mark- ed on a map, we suspect that it does not exist. Actually the Sargasso Sea does exist but the tales about it are wild leg- ends. Columbus sailed through the clear, brilliant water of i ts northern boundaries and sound- ed the depth of its clear bril- liant blue water. But he did not call it the Sargasso Sea. Nor did he realize that this section of the North Atlantic qualified as something special. It mere- ly seemed like a stretch of warm, very calm water with a few carpets of seaweed float- ing around on its shiny sur- face. Later, a Portuguese word for seaweed was borrowed to name the Sargasso Sea. The region is an east-west oval shape, cen- tered about miles west of the Canary Islands. If it were five times larger, it would equal the area of North Amer- ica. The Sargasso Sea is out there in mid-ocean far from land, with no coastlines of any sort to mark its boundaries. This may explain why many maps forget to mark it. Hair raising legends tell of mcie remarkable. For they arc enormous currents that actual- ly travel like mighty rivers through the ocean. These ocean currents eddy like an enormous whilrlpocl around the North Atlantic Ocean. This swirling eddy circles around an oval-shaped center in mid-ocean, where it encloses and protects a region of calm water. This is the Sar- gasso Sea, where breezes are mild and the sun shines bright. Its water is extra salty, deep vivid blue and the clsarest in the wcrld. The ocean floor is more than three miles below the surface Right now, marine scientists are studying the unusual eco- logy of the unusual Sargasso Sea. They are finding some remarkable living creatures in the matted seaweeds. But they do not expect to find any old ghost ships or strangled wrecks from the legendary past.

GOREN 1973, Ch'cjjo Tribum North- South vulnerable. South deals. NORTH AKQ6 V Q J 10 7 1 0642 WEST 0 J 10 S KQJ9S7 SOUTH A A 10 8 5 2 EAST 053 OAKQ87 We bidding: South West North East 1 24 4 4 4 Pass Pass Pass Opening lead: King of In a highly competitive auction, South was permitted to buy the hand at four spades, altho the opposition had a cheap two trick save available in clubs with fa- vorable vulnerability condi- tions. Inasmuch as West has no defense ari his partner has conf-med a good fit by giving a jump raise, it ap- pears that he should persist to five clubs. Once West passed, it was reasonable for East to de- fend since he holds three tricks in his own hand. West opened the king of clubs, and when the dummy was spread, -East paused for a brief reflection before playing to the trick. On the fcasis of South's aggressive bidding, it appeared likely that the latter held the balk of the missing high card strength in spades and dia- monds. It was also safe to assume he was short in clubs and might have only a singleton. If this were the case, then the only other source of tricks for the de- fense was hearts. It did not likely that West would shift to hearts on his own initiative even if East were to give him a discouraging signal on the first trick, for the dum- my's side suit looked some- what imposing. East decided to extend a helping .hand to his partner, therefore, by ov- ertaking the king of clubs with the ace. At trick two, East shifted to the king of hearts to ob- serve West's reaction. When the latter started a high-low by dropping the nine of hearts, East continued with the ace ar.d then a third round of the suit. Declarer ruffed with the ten of spades; however, West over- ruffed with the jack to set the contract. Had South guessed to trump with the see of spades, North's king and queen would have been drop- ped the doutjleton jack permitting declarer's ten to draw the last trump. How- ever, South made the natural play on the hand and is not open to charge. The major credit on the deal goes to East for taking full charge of the defense at a time when his partner hardly could be expected to come up with the right an- swer if left to his own de- vices. Ill tear Dr. Lamb Will you j tell me as much as you can about the treatment and diet of ulceis. My friend has a rather trying job at the airport and I suppose that is the cause right there. Every spring and fall he has trouble. He claims you just have to weather it and watch jour diet. Is there any way to forestall these attacks? Dear Reader Ulcers do tend to recur in spring or fall. Just why, nobody knows. The common duodenal ulcers (often improperly called stom- ach ulcers) occur 10 times as often in men as they do in women. They were rare before 1900. Now one out of four men have one during their lifteime. This increase in men parallels the changes in life style in our industrialized nations. More people lived in the country and lived a simpler life. Smoking was not so common and those who did smoke often had to roll their which greatly slowed down cigarette consumption. People drank less coffee and alcohol. Stress particularly frustra- tion, anger, and hostility over a long period of time tends to precipitate ulcers. It stimu- lates the stomach to produce large amounts of acid pepsin juice. The acid pepsin juice normally begins the digestion of proteins as in meat. It is not suprisig then that, in excess quantities, it will start digest- ing the body tissue, specifically the lining of the duodenum just outside the stomach. Although much can be dons In relicie the problems of ul- cers w ith medicine and changes in habits, unless the stress fac- tor can be significantly altered, reoccurrences are likely. Some- times it means that the indivi- dual should change jobs. Coffee, tea and colas all con- tain caffeine in varied amounts Caffeine is a powerful stimu- lant to the stomach to pour out large amounts of acid pepsin juice. Anyone who has a ulcer, or has had an ulcer, should not drink any of these beverages. The purpose of medical treat- LAWRENCE E. LAMB. M. D. Ulcers often recur all or spring HE LOOKS VERY RUN- POWN!

HUNTER Steve drew level again with his friend as they cycled along the road at a steady 12 miles per hour. ''That's another blue bus, like the cne that overtook us exactly 20 minutes he shouted. "Yes, the next one on the same replied Fred, checking his watch. "And right on schedule. There's one every fourteen minutes this time of day.'' What was the average speed of the buses? Thanks for an idea to F. C. Asbury, Toronto, Ontario. (Answer tomorrow) Yesterday's answer: PEAR was 1087. merit of ulcers is to neluralize the formation of acid pepsin juice, which in turn allows the healing of the ulcer. It does not make much sense then to stim- ulate the stomach to pour out more acid pepsin juice. Alcohol has a similar action in stimulating the formation of acid pepsin juice. It is also ir- ritating to cells. Anyone who has an ulcer should not use alcohol in any form. Cigarettes inhibit the forma- tion of alkaline digestive juices that are poured out into the first part of the small intestine to help neutralize the acid pep- sin juice. Ulcers are twice as common in heavy cigarette smokers as in non-smokers. The habits mentioned above are probably more important than the diet. The diet should consist of good wholesome food eaten regularly. One should avoid acid fruits, fruit juices and spicy foods. In very severe cases the doctor may prescribe a very bland diet or even a li- quid diet. The rest of the management of an ulcer patient is based on the proper use of medicine to neutralize acid pepsin juice and to prevent excessive formation to it. If your friend has any of the habits mentioned above, I would suggest that the best thing he could do to help forestall his at tacks would be to change his habit patterns.
