Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - May 18, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 - THI IfTHBWDG! HIRALD - Tuesday, May 18, 1971 KARPIN ON BRIDGE By FRED KARPIN One of the characteristics of the non - expert player is his desire to try to win as many tricks as possible. This desire frequently leads to dire consequences. Such was the case in today's deal, In which declarer, perhaps unconsciously, subordinated the goal of fulfilling his slam contract to the quest for the maximum number of tricks. He was in error, of course. What was his mistake? Both sides vulnerable. North deals.

West's opening lead should have been the diamond queen. The theme of the deal was that South was not to play the king for dummy, for if he did East would win it with his ace. A spade return by East (if he guessed to lead a spade), would then enable the opponents to trap South's king and make three spade tricks. South was supposed to be aware of his position - and his play was to be geared towards keeping East out of the lead. Thus, on the opening lead of the diamond queen, a low diamond was to be played from dummy, to keep West in the lead '.no East player could be that clairvoyant that he would overtake his partner's queen, to return the queen of spades). South would then ruff the continuation of the diamond jack, pick up the four outstand i n g trumps, and cash the board's four high clubs. On the fourth club, he would discard one of his losing spades and fulfill his contract. But, at one of the tables, West opened the nine of diamonds. A low diamond was played from dummy, and East, quite naturally, took the trick with his ace. Since it was futile to return either a diamond or a heart, East played back the queen of spades. Declarer now had to lose three spade tricks, and his contract was defeated. What did I say to the West defender? Not a thing. I couldn't in a million years have convinced him that he had made a "losing" lead (c) 1971, Chicago Tribune-New York News Syndicate, Inc. I WANT 10 BE THE HOST ON A RADIO TALK SHOW LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Doctor's check for steam bath? Dear Dr. Lamb - Do I need I to get a doctor's approval to use sauna or steam baths? Dear Reader - Perhaps soon you will. The U.S. Federal Trade Commission is studying the possibility that they are health hazards. Why? Because both dry and wet heat cause changes in the action of the heart and circulation. The heart has to work harder and the blood pressure goes up. This, incidently is why exercise in the heat puts a greater stress on the circulation than exercise in cool weather. The FTC has already issued a warning to elderly people and those with high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes to consult their physician before using dry or wet heat. The commission also suggests sauna baths and steam baths should not be used until at least an hour after eating and not at all while under the influence of alcohol and a variety of drugs and medicines, including stimulants (this does not include certain diet pills) and tranquilizers. The reducing parlors that depend upon steam baths may be in serious trouble. Well, better them than thee. Dear Dr. Lamb - After an examination my doctor said I had severe atrophic vaginitis. Is there danger of cancer? Also what is the cure? Should I avoid intercourse? It's very painful, Dear Reader - Atrophic vaginitis usually occurs in older women. It simply is atrophy of the spongy cellular lining of the vagina, with a decrease in the normal secretions causing "dryness." It is caused by insufficient female hormone. The maturation and normal function of the sex organs is dependent upon hormones and when these are not sufficient, for example after the menopause, norma] (unction is curtailed. The "dry" vaginal vault is easily irritated and painful intercourse is the rule. The con- Indian affairs department to take over base WINNIPEG (CP) - The Canadian forces base at Rivers, Man. will be taken over by the department of Indian affairs as an on-the-job training centre for individual Indians and their families. James Richardson, federal supply and services minister, said today the base will be developed as an industrial-educational training centre under the management of a corporation with a seven-man board of directors. The Manitoba Indian Brotherhood will appoint three directors, the minister of Indian affairs three and participating industries one. The closure of the base in the Brandon area of western Manitoba, was announced last August. The facilities include six hangars, 405 housing units plus 80S staple-bedroom accommodations. dition can usually be relieved by taking female hormones. * � * Dear Dr. Lamb - What makes one's stool a very light color, almost a real light clay color? Does it mean I have a bad liver? Doctor says my gall bladder is all right. When I eat greens or beets and things like that the stool is a natural color. Dear Reader - The color of the stool is normally dependent upon the food you eat and the various pigments the liver releases into the bile. It is true that if the bile flow into the intestine is prevented that the stools can become very light, clay colored or chalky in appearance. People .who eat little meat or who consume large amounts of milk, bread and foods without pigments sometimes have light clay colored stools. Taking iron tablets, eating foods like greens, add pigment to the stool, giving it color. Bleeding into the digestive tract can cause black tarry stools. Bleeding ulcers can cause this. How to prove it Andy sends a complete 20-volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Marco Palmer, age 11, of Oaksdale, Washington, for his question: How can I prove I saw Jupiter? On January 26, Marco trained his telescope on the skies and focused it on a bright planet. His problem is to prove that what he saw was giant Jupiter. There several ways to do this, even long after the glorious event. An expert can tell in a moment the name of each visible planet in the sky. But a beginner needs a few clues. And, as usual, the best way is to come prepared. Every young astronomer deserves a telescope - plus a subscription to a heavenly magazine that charts the changing positions of the planets. These charts announced that a brilliant and unusual display of planets would appear in the morning skies through most of January 1971. Andy arose early to behold them and was not disappointed. Early in the month, every morning before dawn, thi-ee bright planets were arranged in a razzle-dazzle triangle. Each had arisen before the sun and the glorious display appeared in the southeastern sky. The three reigning Morning Stars could be distinguished from several brilliant true stars in this region of the sky. True stars twinkle, while planets shine with a steady stare. The most brilliant planet was golden Venus, placed a little below Mars< which rose two hours earlier. Each morning, their positions changed slightly. On the morning of the 26th, Venus was 12 times brighter than Jupiter and the two planets appeared merely a hairbreadth apart. With this information, one could locate and identify them even without a telescope. Focusing a telescope can be tricky, especially when two ce lestial bodies are so close to- 6O0D FOR to..AS LISTENERS CALL IN, WLL BE ABLE TO ENC0URA6E THE EXCHAN6E OF DIFFERENT IDEA** ON THE CONTRARY.. I'LL VO ALL THE TALKING J gether. But in this case, a close-up view can reveal which is which. In a telescope, golden Venus appears as a hazy, unmarked disk, but the face of Jupiter is full of character. Its flattened disk is wider at the bulging equator. From pole to pole we see a series of parallel bands of streaky lighter and darker tones. A really sharp telescope reveals the banded streaks in pearly grays and beauteous pastel colors. These markings are cloudy patterns in Jupiter's thick, turbulent atmosphere. A telescope reveals no markings on the face of Venus. The face of Mars is a smooth, simple disk, though stronger telescopes reveal surface blotches. Saturn, like Jupiter, is a flattened disk' banded with streaky clouds. But only Saturn is circled with dazzling golden rings - besides which it was not present in that morning sky. If the planet you saw was much dimmer than nearly dazzling Venus, chances are it was Jupiter. If your telescope had revealed its light and dark banded markings, then you can be sure. * *  It so happens that these two planets appeared very close to neptune. However, most likely this distant planet was too dim to appear in your telescope. Its markings resemble Jupiter's, but Neptune is distinguished by a greenish glow. Another confusing object on the scene was the bright star Antares. But it appeared dimmer than either Venus or Jupiter - and its face in the telescope is an unmarked spot of light.
