We also have some close-ups of mighty Martian mountains. One volcano is twice as mas- sive as any volcano on the earth. Its base is 310 miles and its steep sides rise up to a crater that is 40 miles wide. An- other volcanic crater is 56 miles wide. Another remark- able feature is a sandy dune field. SO miles long and 40 miles wide. About a century ago, a fam- ous scientist reported that he had seen a network of geome- tric lines on the surface. Sev- eral others saw, or thought they saw, these so-called canals of Mars. A lot of people believ- ed that they were built by in- telligent Martians who lived on our neighboring planet. Then came the space age and 1 the clever little Mariner probes v.ere launched to get a closer look at the surface of Mars. No telescope on earth had been able to photograph those so- i called Martian canals and by GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H. GOREN t'TS, TH CMdtt East-West vulnerable North deals.

A tremen- <5ous final session enabled them just to nose out Dan. Botman, Skokie, HI., and _ Charles Peres, Chicago. 1 The hand above gave rise to considerable discussion when it was dealt in this event. The bidding almost invariably foiiowed the pat- tern shown and several North-South pairs bought the contract for five spades aft- cr their opponents had com- peted up to five hearts. Where West chose to open the king of hearts, declarer proceeded at a merry pace. Dummy ruffed the king of spades, the closed hand was entered with the eight of spades and South's re- maming heart was ruffed with the queen of spades. The ten of trumps was over- taken by the jack and de- clarer pulled West's last spade with the ace. He ran dummy's club suit next, dis- carding all of his in the process. He took all 13 tricks. At a few tables, East re- fused to give up in the auc- tion and persisted to six hearts. His attempted sacri- fice was doubled and the op- position cashed two club tricks and one spade to ad- minister a 500 point sting. Ordinarily this penalty would provide ample com- pensation for a non-vulnera- ble game tourna- ment awarded a 300 point bonus in addition to the trick score. However, tlnse North-Souths who took -i1! the tricks plavins at scored 510 points [210 "or the trir-k sore tilus the 300 game The mere 10-poiit saving by sacrificing at six hearts represents a kev margin at duplicate bridge, where the scoring is based solely en a pure point comparison of the results of every pair that played the deal. The top score for East and West was obtained at a table where West devoted consid- erable attention to the selec- tion of an opening lead against South's five spade contract. He despaired of the prospects of cashing many heart tricks, and it ap- peared to him that any hope for defeating the bid rested in uncovering some hidden strength in his partner's hand. Since West had a high card in diamonds, he decid- ed to launch his attack m that direction despite the fact that he held only a dou- bleton ir. that suit. Accord- ingly, le opened the king of diamonds. East overtook the ace and continued with the queen and -jack. After three tricks were cashed, the defense cheerful- ly conceded the balance to the declarer. When all the scores were in, it turned out that they were the only East-West pair to register a profit on the deal The Martian day is about the same length as ours but the year is almost twice as long. The winter season crusts the polar regions with soxie sort of icy material and possi- 1 bly the spring brings forth some i sort of vegetation. True, there i is shortage of water and oxy- gen. But the ups and downs on the Martial landscape are ab- solutely stupendous. Andy sends a seven-volume set of The Chronicles of Nar- nia to Marilyn Stein, age 14, of Toronto, Ontario, for her question: Why don't worms suffocate underground? We are used to living in a wide, airy world and life below the surface may be hard to imagine. To us, the ground seems too solid to have room for any breathable air. True, if the ground happens to be a massive slab of hard granite, there are not many airy spaces. But even a hard rock usually has a few small pores and poc- kets and wherever there are such spaces, they are filled with gases. An earthworm does not live in solid rock, where air poc- kets are few and far between. He lives in the porous dirt, which is a hodge-podge of solid crumbs with plenty of cracks and crannies between them. He needs only a small amount of oxygen and he absorbs it through the skin that covers his entire body. There is enough available air in the soil and plenty more in the he excavates through the dirt.

Box 765. nunticgton Beach, California (Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1973) Columnist's notebook By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) Jump- Ing to conclusions: Some philosophers fear we are witnessing a reversal of sex roles in our society. Little girls are behaving like tom- boys and their mothers like tom-men as women in general attempt to act more like men. Men are beginning to return the compliment by acting more like women. The interchange has gone so far that in some marriages it is the husband who is the bet- ter cook and the wife who knows more about baseball. One of the problems the whole question raises is what will our next generation of young males be like9 Will they take the trend even further, and become the first generation of toingirls in our national his- tory? Somehow the idea of being safeguarded by an army whose men crochet while on sentry duty doesn't appeal to me. SOKTA Pie'UAIL TO THE BlONDIE-By Chic Young SOODNISHT, FOLKS BEETLE BAILEY-By Mort Walker Li'L ABNER-By Andy Capp The human conscience works in odd ways. I have had a lifelong aversion to eat- ing lamb ever since at the age of five I drew a picture of a Iamb which the kingergarten teacher praised as the best ever drawn by a student in her classes. That flattery made it impossible for me ever again to eat lamb know- ingly and enjoy it. I suspect, however, that bad I drawn the picture of a lamb made by any member of the class, today I could relish lamb by the heaping plateful. Why don't men everywhere follow the custom of wearing broad-brimmed Western style hats? They are the only hats that really look good on a man and make a man feel like a man Those narrow- brimmed, ranky-dink fabric boxes that eastern men wear for hats don't fend off the rain, sun or snow and accom- plish but one thing: They give women something to laugh at. But if all men wore Western hats, they would give all women something to admire rather than ridicule. .ELSE 15 A WIFE PO'? TO' IS TO TAKE CARE O'VDRE.CHlLE.rlK YORE MEALS, AW' BE.

Local pres- ident Ken Purvis has resched- uled the banquet to Wednesday, May 23. Contrary to popular opinion, the two women on a ship cruise who show up for dinner the first night out wearing identical dresses are more likely to become fast friends than immediate enemies Only by showing a sense of feminine humor can they get a laugh back at the other pas- sengers who laughed at them over the mishap.
