12 TH! UTHBR1DG! HERALD May THE WELL CHILD Premarital Blood Test RecommendedProcedure By WAYNE G. BRANDSTADT, M.D. Vrittcn for Newspaper Enterprises Assn. Writtc: AlUiough June is traditionally .known as the month of brides, weddings are fairly evenly dis- tributed throughout the year. In planning a wedding, however some couples fail to include the blood test required in many states. In some cases, this may necessitate an embarrass- ing postponement. This can be avoided by visit- Ing your physician two or three weeks before the wedding date and telling him you want a serologic test for syphilis a good idea even where it is not a legal requirement. When the test has been made, return to his office and get his certificate and the laboratory report. In most states, the marriage license must be applied for not later than 15 days after the blood test and is valid for only 30 days. This is because it is possible (even though unlikely) that one of the parties may have acquired syphilis in the in- terim. Seek Hiring Of Canadian Professors TORONTO (CP) The Cana- dian Association of University Teachers set up a committee during the weekend which will attempt to get universities to hire more Canadian professors. The committee is to recom- mend action to ensure that uni- versities follow hiring policies that would result in employment of "a reasonably high propor- tion of Canadians." The association was picketed x year ago by Prof. Robin Mathews of Carleton University in Ottawa for failing to include the Americanization of Cana- dian universities on its agenda Although this whole proce- dure may sound terribly un- romantic, it stems from the desire of the state all too often justified to protect the future offspring of a marriage. Syphilis is a treacherous' dis- ease and its most tragic blows fall on blameless infants. Q __ jf a woman s m o k e s during pregnancy, will this have a harmful effect on her baby? A Yes.

In doing so, Ottawa became responsible for the Indians' premiums for an unlimited per- iod of time because it assumed the role of "group Mr. Cardinal said. "This is according to Alberta law." Any future dispute would be "between the federal govern- ment and individual Indians." "The only thing that would invalidate this is if an Indian makes a premium payment. This would then make him res- ponsible for his payments in the future. I think this is one thing you have to watch pretty care- fully." Mr. Cardinal was at the res- erve on the city's outskirts as part of a tour of Indian com- munities hi southern Alberta.

The rest was up to the declarer, and he obligingly swallowed the bait when it was offered. West had no very attractive lead and he finally chose to npcn tlw lone ten of clubs, despite South's bid of that suit. Declarer promptly con- eluded that the lead was a singleton and after winnim; the trick with the aco bo began to draw trump. Tile kiDi! ajtf (lUCCfl Of hearts were cashed and West followed suit with the three and that order. This gave the appearance that he held only two trumps, in which case South could safely ruff out his losing diamond. A diamond was led to the ace and the jack was trumped with dummy's re- maining heart, the deuce. South expected to reenter his hand with the king of clubs to pull the last trump and then take the spade fi- nesse for a possible over- trick. He was shocked when West ruffed the king of clubs with the six of hearts. A dia- mond was returned which South trumped but when ha took the spade finesse and East turned up with the king, the contract was set. South could have made slam by drawing a third round of trumps and then taking the spado finesse. Althp it loses, he regains the lead with the ace of dia- monds. The spade suit can now be established by leading over to the ace and ruffing out the ten. North's queen of clubs provides an entry for South to discard his jack of diamonds. Whether or not declarer should have fallen for ruse is perhaps open to question, however, West de- serves full credit for doing everything in his power to steer his on.Done.nt otf course..
