Due to a blind spot, however, he turned the opening to his own disadvan- tage. West opened the five of hearts which was won in dummy by the king. Thank- ful that the opponents had not opened a diamond, South resolved to dispcse of as many losers as possible without delay. A spade was led to the ace, felling West's queen, and then declarer proceeded to run the hearts. On the ace and queen, he discarded North's four and nine of dia- monds. East ruffed m on the third round with the eight of spades and then cashed the king East underled the ace of diamonds next and West put up the king to drop dummy's jack. East's play entailed lit- tle risk, for declarer's anxie- ty to obtain quick discards clearly indicated that dia- monds was his weak suit. West shifted to the four of clubs, dummy played the three and East put in the ten which South ruffed. South was left with three nine of hearts and the queen and six of dia- monds. As only two trumps remained in dummy, declar- er was obliged to concede a trick at the end for down one. South was unduly con- cerned with the diamond sit- uation. Even if the defense had chosen to open that suit originally, they are limited to two trick ace and king. Declarer's only other loser is the king of spades, for after trumps are drawn there is still a spade in dum- my to ruff out the nine of hearts. Altho West's heart opening did not give anything away, South was still in position to take 10 tricks with careful play. After the ace of spades is played at trick two, it is suggested that declarer con- tinue to draw trump. East's best defense is to play the king and another spade. The ace of hearts is cashed to discard a diamond from dummy. South now plays a dia- mond and puts in North's nine. This dislodges East's ace and after the queen of diamonds drives out West's king, declarer's jack be- comes established. AH he Jjas to do is to ruff the nine of hearts in order to claim the rest of the tricks. Observe that even if the nine cf diamonds loses to the ten, there is still a trump !eft in dummy to cover de- clarer's third diamond, and, if the hearts are divided 4-3 the rest of his hand be- comes high LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Nutrition gap in teen diet Dear Dr. Lamb I'm 15 years old, and weigh 98 pounds (Female.) I'm a veg- etarian, I eat no meat at all and I don't eat any type of sea- food and very seldom do I eat eggs. My diet consists of vege- tables, fruits, candy and other sweets. I only stopped eating meat about a year ago. And I take no type of protein. I take B complex, A, D, E and mul- tiple vitamins. I often get tired and feel de- pressed. So would you please tell me what to do to stay healthy and to gain weigh. P.S. I just love your column and some day I wish I could become a doctor like you! Dear Reader I am net sur- prised you feel tired from the description of your diet. It is unlikely that you are getting all the different types of pro- tein you need. Most vegetables do not contain complete pro- teins. That means that the dif- ferent types of amino acids that make up the pioteins in the foods you eat do not include all of the essential amino acids that should be included in the diet. Now, it is true that if you use a mixed variety of incom- plete proteins then you might get all of the essential amino acids in the diet, but this re- quires some particular atten- tion. The foods that contain com- plete proteins are the meats, eggs, milk and, in short, ani- mal protein. Most vegetarians think that milk is all right. You can stay on a vegetarian diet and use milk and milk products such as cottage cheese. Soybeans and other na- ture bean seeds are nearly complete proteins but you need to eat a sufficient amount of these to meet a growing indivi- duals biological needs. One can have mood changes anyway irrespective of the diet. But I would feel a lot better about your situation if you would at least include an abun- dant amount of milk or cottage cheese in your diet. MY PAP IS FLAVINS IN A CANCER TOURNAMENT [tl V ICAN lTNplLf tl CHARLIE PfiOhMS Dear Dr. Lamb I want to know what happens when one takes vitamin E and estrogen. Does the vitamin destroy the estrogen or the estrogen de- stroy the vitamin? Also, what happens when one takes the pill longer than she should without stopping for a period. Dear Reader am not fav- orably impressed with the gen- eral use of vitamin E for treat- ing a large variety of medical illnesses, neither are toe U.S. Food and ]3rug Administration or the American Medical Assn. However, in moderate doses it is not harmful and in a few problems it has value. It will not affect estrogen, nor will the estrogen affect the vitamin E. Common birth control pills contain substances that have the same action as natural fe- male hormones. During preg- nancy increased amounts of fe- male hormones are formed in the body to prevent another _ ovulatcry cycle. This principle! was used to develop the birth I control pill. If you take the pill' continuously, it is similar to being pregnant. During preg- nancy you have a long nine- month period of high levels of the female hormones. This is essential to maintain the preg- nancy. Taking regular birth control pills without interrup- tion is not likely to cause sig- nificant damage; however, it does increase the likelihood of the complications attributed to birth control pills. Most doctors would prefer for women to interrupt the regular pill as directed. There is a new low dose mini pill (Micronor and Nor-Q.D.) just approved which is taken daily throughout the year, year.

Li'L ABNER-By Andy Copp THEV'VE ALL BEEN YAKAPUNCTURED Origin of cork Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Jack Callis, age 13, of Soluda, Vir- ginia, for his question: Where do we get cork? The cork tree which gives us endless varieties of frothy cork is an oak and, like all the 275 different oak trees in the world, it grows from an acorn. Groves of cork oaks are cultivated in Portugal, France, Spain and North Africa and every cork planter must be a very patient person. The growing trees produce nothing for their first 25 years. The first harvest is loose, crumbly cork useful only for packing grapes. The planter must wait another ten years for his next harvest when he can expect each tree to yield several hundred pounds of fair- ly good cork. Ten years later, harvest time comes around again and the 45-year-old trees will be in the prime of life. Each will yield about 500 pounds cf the finest cork and they will repeat this harvest every ten years for another 100 years. W M V Cork is riddled with tiny holes like a lump of pumice, which is a rocky mineral. It floats on water like a foam rubber sponge, which is a man- made synthetic. But cork is neither a mineral nor a man- made substance. It is a product of the plant world. The cork we use as bottle steppers, fishing floats, packing material, base- ball stuffing and paper-thin cigarette tips all grew from tiny acorns. The cork tree is a live oak which keeps its old leaves until they ere replaced with new ones. It may stand 60 feet tall. Its bulky trunk and branches are rough and gnarled with thick bark. This foamy bark grows in two layers and the outer lajer of bark yields the harvest of cork. The outer bark of the cork tree, like all parts of a plant, j is made from boxy little cells. The cell walls are thinner than thin but they are crisp and firm with resins. A cork bottle stop- per contains millions of these boxy cells filled with nothing but air. The thin cell walls make up less than half of the bulk of the cork, which is why it is light enough to float high in the water. When the outer bark is peel- ed from the tree, the corky ma- terial is boiled to remove its juicy sap and tacky resins. When dried, only the papery cell walls remain and the mi- croscopic cells are packed tightly together, each trapping its pocket of air. These sealed pockets of air keep the outside air from passing back and forth through the cork. For this reason, sheets of cork are used as insulating material and we find them packed around fur- nace pipes to keep the hot air from escaping. The cork tree belongs to the plant genus Quercus, a scien- tific term borrowed from the Latin name for an oak tree. Its stately cousin the white oak has the scientific name Quercus alba; the red cak is Quercus rubra. The scientific name Quercus suber means oak and cork tissue which makes it a reasonable title for the sturdy cork oak. IT WILL. BE B A.M. TIME BOP.
