Reader exercises a winking eye Dear Dr. T rever- ently read your column and agree with most everything you say, except exercise. I am 17 years old and the heaviest ex- ercise J have ever taken after adolescence was winking at the gals which I do today. No ath- lete ever lived to age 100 and Jim Thorpe, the greatest, died ct 0 mature but early age. A lot. of other alhleles as Ihey have gotten older are certainly In poor shape. When an athlete trains he strauis his physique and injures his body Increasing his chances of heart trouble. My grandfather drank quart of whisky daily, not counting cider, and he liven" lo 101. My relatives all live long. They have good Jobs but they don't try to impress their neigh- bors with trying to be the best dressed or the best smelbng. Taking life slowly and a good normal exercise like walking and slretching, with a rule re- quiring a few days a month outside the automobile would do more good than all the doc- tor': advice. A cure for heart discese in the future is relax- ation In the present. Dear Reader I am a firm supporter of walking and if you have read my column as regularly as you have said you know that I have repeatedly emphasized it as the most Im- portant form of regular exer- cise. CiTlainly a person should be able to demonstrate thai he can walk an hour without diffi culty before doing anyl h i n g more strenuous. f am afraid lhal a lot of our athletes who have died early In age haven't always continued lo slay in top physical condi- tion. This means they have neg- lected Iheir exercise program, eaten too much and in some instances they have used too much alcohol. Not all of them, including Jim Thorpe, tolerat- ed this unhealthy change In Uieir living habits as well as your grandfather. Occasionally there are young people who die at an early age from heart disease who are ac- live in alhlelics, particularly football. Football is not the most ideal form of exercise in devc'oping tile heart and blood vessels lo lop condition, particularly when a lot of em- phasis is placed on maintain- ing a heavy body weight. There are a lot of records which suggest that athletes live a relatively long time, includ- ing the reports on the Harvard rowing teams which have been studied tlirough a number of years. So, I don't think you should equate the benefits of exercise with the medical his- tory of people who have quit exercising. GOREN ON BRIDGE Making, charcool Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dent Encyclopedia to Tommy Jacoby, age 7, of N o r I h Vancouver, British Columbia, for his question: How do they make charcoal? It's almost time to buy some smudgy black charcoal for cMt- door summer barbeques. In olden limes, a village often had a charcoal maker who worked off in Ibe woods, fie made enough for everybody, (hough some people liked to make Iheir own in the backyard. Nowa- days, they make our fancy char- coal in special ovens. This is a bcUer way to do it. But modem charcoal makers still use the same old recipe they used ages ago, with a few sensible changes. Charcoal lecls somewhat like black chalk and looks like sooty carbon. Actually soot and charcoal are made moslly of carbon and there is a lot of carbon hidden in ordinary wood. You might never guess that our neal little charcoal chunks slarl out as ordinary wood, but they do. Ages ago, our ancestors discovered how lo make charcoal by roasting Plicks and chips of wood very, very slowly. And nobody has invented another way lo do the job. In olden days, a village char- coal burner often lived in a clearing in the forest. There he could find enough u'ood and also roasl it where Ihe fumes did not pollute Ihe air around Ibe village. His roasting pil was a bole in the ground, packed with slicks and chins. As soon as he lighted the fire, he cov- ered it wilh a pointed roof of wooden slats and topped the whole thing with shovels of dirt and grassy turf. This was not quite enough, be- cause fire cannot burn without air. A strong draft makes wood burn with fast flames. The charcoal burner needed a slow, slow fire, so he gave it only a little air. He made a few smallish holes near the bottom and a larger hole In the pointed roof to let the fumes escape. The fire toasted and roasted the wood for days and days. It turned some of its unwanted I chemicals into guses and drove them through Ihe roof. But Ihe wood styled behind, sooty black carbon in the wood slyed behind. The roasting wood shrank and shrank and turned sooty black. When at last it was done, the charcoal burner shov- eled dirt and damp ashes over his oven. This shut off the air supply and the fire went out. The oven was left to cool for several days. When It was bro- ken apart, there was the char- coal, charcoal making j is neater and faster. They loat j the wood into huge containers 1 over a slow fire. They get abou 30 pounds of charcoal from 100 pounds of wood (Tho olden charcoal burner got only about We also save some" of the waste gases lo make use f u chemicals, such as acetone am acetic acid. We can make charcoal from roasted hnnes and other things that contain lots of carbon. Most ol it is fine for filtering out odors and unwanted parti- cles from air and water. Some- limes the waterworks filters mil flirly debris through beds of charcoal. Sugar manufactur- ers may use layers of char- coal lo filler Iheir Ihick syrup, lu some countries, they heal rooms with charcoal fires. But burning charcoal gives off suf- focating fumes. When it's used indoors without a very good draft, windows must be open lo let in fresh breatheable air, Questions asneo irr cnTTmon o( Herald readers should bt mailed to Ask Amty, P.O.

In order lo bind r'.tfil tricks, it appeared that f-'.iulh must score nil five of lus diamonds, iajiaucii as he could count on only one trick In each of the other fiuita. The odds favored taking a finesse against the queen of diamonds, hut unless West held Ihe ace of clubs, Ihcro was no assured entry tn dummy. In order to improve his chances slightly, declarer, led Ihe king of clubs from his hand at trick four. West played the deuce, North the four nnd East put up the ice and shifted to the deuce of hearts, Declarer played Ihe ace of hearts and tested Ihe dia- monds by cashing the which brought forlh only small cards. He was about to lead a club to the queen, wlicn he paused to ask him- self why East had made ac- cess to the dummy M easy. Unless Ihc latter held a blank ace of clubs, it would have been simple to hold off for at least one round. The prospect of West's having live clubs as well us Ilvo spades, appeared remote. There was another possibil- ity that suggested llsylf, however. If East held tha queen of It was would have exerted every effort lo deny declarer access lo (he North hand by holding off on Ihc ace of clulis.

So reasoning, declarer changed his mind and In- stead of leading a club, ha played the king of diamonds from his hand.

Ear transplants may end deafness CHICAGO (AP) An ear specialist predicts that in- creased use of ear tissue trans- plants soon will mean restored hearing for hundreds of thou- sands of persons now afflicted with deafness. Ihe midwest ern U.S. There ere two or three similar programs elsewhere. Dr. Derlacki said not all deaf persons can benefit from such transplants, but he estimated i thai several hundred thousand Dr. Eugene L. Derlacki said might, in an interview several hundred such transplants are being per-1 formed successfully each year on persons suffering from cor- i lain types of deafness.
