Several days ago I stayed home from school because I felt sick The second day I was and I kept listening for noises and thought someone was sneaking up on me to kill me It was the same way the third day. this scared the hell out of and I'd pull the covers up to my start jerking and then I'd cross my arms in front of me and pull on the covers and about tear them apart. This happened three or four I can't remember for sure I can't sleep very and when I do get to sleep someone is always after me in my dreams They seem so real it's hard to tell if it really happened Since I'm depressed I want to be by and if someone comes into the bedroom it makes me mad if someone says or does something I don't like I start griping Usually I get along okay and keep my mouth shut I'm noi hungry so I can get along on a glass of juice for dinner and supper. I lost five pounds in four days The only thing that bothers me now is I'm nervous as heck and hdle the thought of going to school where everyone is I forgot to suicide has entered my mind I have an urge to throw my arms through a window and cut them I haven't done but I ve broken a light bulb and taken the glass and put it in my hands and squeezed it. I guess 1 hoped it would cut me but it so I stepped on it and ended with the same results When I go back to school I have speeches to say and it scares the hell out of me to get up in front of the class. do you think it's possible I could get out of them' do you think I'm going crazy' Thanks for any advice Dear Reader you are having trouble.

After North raised to two South did not have quite enough to insist on game. he did have sufficient values to make a move towards and he decided that showing support for his partner's diamond suit was the bid most likely to en- courage North. In this he proved to be an excellent for North was at the top of his raise. West did not want to lead from a suit where he held something of so he elected to lead his top heart. Declarer won the ace in his hand and ran the queen of trumps. When the finesse suc- he continued with the jack of and West again played low. A trump to the ace picked up the king. Declarer now lead a dia- mond to his king and West's ace. West shifted to a and East captured dummy's king with the ace. A club was returned to the nine and West put dummy back on lead with a heart. There was no vfay for declarer to avoid losing another diamond trick for down one. Declarer's play was a trifle hasty. He should have real- ized that he could afford to lose two club tricks if he could hold his diamond losers to one. after draw- ing West's last de- clarer should first have cashed his remaining heart winners. Now he can afford tc lead a this gives up any chance of winning a trick with the king of clubs and presents the defenders with two club but it also guarantees the contract. After they take their two club which- ever defender is on lead is endplayed. If he broaches the diamond declarer is given a free finesse for the which limits his losers in the suit to one.

For some have ears in their legs or abdomens They sense touch and possibly taste with their antennas. A few have no eyes at all. When some insects have a dozen or so simple eyes Some adult insects have two eyes but many of them have five. Many adult insects have the same sort of vision as the bee She has two large compound eyes and three small simple eyes called ocelli The two compound eyes are those big one on each side of her head She cannot turn her head to look around. But her domed eyes can see the scenery on all also front and back. We more or less how they work. But we know less about the three small set in a triangle on her forehead. When an insect's compound eye is greatly it looks like a dome set with honeycomb all neatly fitted together. Each cell is a tiny lens that captures a picture of the scenery It has a tiny retina screen and a tiny nerve to relay information to the insect's brain A clear picture depends on the number of lens in these compound eyes. Certain worker ants have only six compound lens Each catches a glimpse of the scenery from a slightly different direction. But the total effect must be very dim and blurry. The house fly has lens in each compound eye. Together they form a picture that must look like a neat mosaic of six-sided sections. She gets a clear view from all directions which makes her so hard to swat The dragonfly has even sharper vision for each of her bulging eyes is fitted with about little lenses. These compound eyes are able to detect the slightest movement in the scenery. This is important because an insect needs to know when to flit from a possible foe. compound eyes cannot be focused on objects near and far. They catch a good picture of the scenery only up to a few feet but not insects have three ocelli on the forehead These organs are called simple though nobody is quite sure how they help the if at all Researchers have covered a bee's compound eyes to see what happens The remaining ocelli do not seem to for she acts as if she is blind When only the ocelli are a bee can see but not quite so well It takes her a little longer to notice changes in the light For this it is thought that perhaps the three little extra eyes help the compound eyes to sense brightness and perhaps give sharper pictures Many insects have color though there is no way to know whether a yellow flower looks the same as it does to us In their own they can detect blues and yellows and greens But apparently they see red as or colorless And some insects can see colors in the ultraviolet range which we cannot see. humans see 100 times better than a sharp-sighted fly QuMtions asked by chil- dren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask P.O.
