The art is to realize that you might need a safety play North-South reached a four spade contract in routine fashion North rebid one no- trump at his second since he held only three low spades South chose to jump rebid his six-card major rather than introduce his weak minor and North went on to game on the strength of his three trumps and ruff- ing value. The play did not take long. West led a and de- clarer could see only one loser outside of trumps. He laid down the ace of and when West showed declarer had to lose three spade tricks. Down one The 4-0 trump spbt was un- but not insurmount- able After winning the ace of declarer should have led a low spade from his hand Had both defenders declarer could have played the ace lat' making either four or Depending on the division when West shows out and East is forced to capture the nine with the declarer can limit his trump losers to two by using the ace-king of hearts as entries to finesse trumps twice. Under certain circum- declarer could make the hand even if West held all the missing trumps The key to the hand is that there is no way it could cost de- clarer to lead a low spade at his first while the po- tential reward for this would have been substantial. Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I read in an article in a newspaper that every cell in a person's body reproduces itself every seven to eight years. Do'you have any way of checking on If will you please give me any information you have about if Dear Reader That is another one of those half- truths that is constantly repeated The truth is some cells never reproduce at all Some cells reproduce when they are needed to replace a damaged cell and still others reproduce constantly A good example of continuous reproduction is the case of the red blood cells. Did you know that your body manufactures about three- million new red blood cells every It also destroys red cells at that rate An average red blood cell only lasts about 120 days. So. normally you always have a lot of fairly young red blood cells in your not blood The lining of the small intestine is completely replaced every three days The old are digested and the protein in these cells used just like the protein in your food Our body is a recycling machine far ahead of our primitive ideas about recycling in our own environment Even the iron containing hemoglobin in those destroyed red blood cells is saved and used again to form new blood cells The cells of the skin are constantly being shed and replaced So are the hair hbers These must be rebuilt with new proteins The liver is a good example of an organ that can grow new cells if part of it is removed If a lot of scarring occurs it may not be able to do so. but ordinary injury or surgical excision of part of the liver stimulates it to form new liver cells By tendons and brain cells cannot be replaced at all or at best only poorly You can increase the size of muscle fibers by but you won't increase the number of cells or replace old ones We are stuck with the number of brain cells we and as we get older the number of those in the cortex or thinking portion are fewer in number we have a lot more than we usually need it can become important as you get older. Brain cells damaged by excess use of alcohol oji a long-term basis cannot be replaced. There is much new interesting that indicates that living brain cells can learn to take over new functions if a person loses the cells that control an arm there is the possibility that other cells can be trained to take over these functions. The possibility of training other brain cells for new tasks opens a wide possibility for helping people with problems such as strokes at some time in the future Many such as brain can undergo chemical even if the cell is not replaced That the ammo acids and various minerals in the cell may be exchanged for different proteins and minerals during the cell s life These changes may be related to cell repair or even if the cells are not actually replaced you have all variations rather than a seven or eight year cyclical replacement Send your questions to Dr. in care of this P.O.

Ask Andy CRAYFISH NEST Andv sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Gerry age of Bixby for her question Does the crayfish build a The crayfish is a small freshwater cousin of the sea- dwelling lobster He prefers to do his foraging after dark This means he must make plans to keep out of sight during the day He may hide in the gravelly bottom or dig himself a smallish burrow in the muddy banks of his stream or pond Or he may dig a burrow in the bottom and surround it with a turret The female enters a sort of nesting burrow when she lays her eggs You may not notice but various crayfish lurk in most of our streams and boggy swamps Sometimes they build fancy doorways that reveal their hideaways especially when the floor of their stream is surfaced with sandy gravel What you see looks like a camp of small muddy mounds each mound is a turret of damp dirt packed around the entrance to a burrow Chances the crayfish lurks with his pincers and whiskery antennas poking out through his roof Naturally he hopes to grab a small fish or some other passing swimmer After he crawls forth on his eight skinny walking legs to forage for greenery and whatever decaying material he can find Though the turret builders appear to live in crayfish are not sociable creatures and often fight among themselves the adult lives his own life and keeps more or less to himself In most he inhabits a separate hideway in a submerged burrow or in the mud just above the water level Building his burrow is no problem for he is well equipped with tools His pinchers and skinny legs are encased in a crusty shell and his tail has a crusty fan- shaped scooper Though his burrow can be called a he does not use it as a bedroom When his watery world grows dark enough for he walks forth on his skinny legs If startled he can swim backward like a darting arrow There is one occasion when the burrow becomes more of a nesi Crayfish mate in the fall when the male places his sticky milt onto the female's abdomen She then retires to her burrow where she lays about a hundred of her own eggs The fertilized eggs are fixed onto the bristles of her swimmerets There they remain through the winter The brood of baby crayfishes hatches in the spring and each tiny creature looks like a mini- copy of its parents Their pale glassy are tinged with patches of pink They crowd clinging to mother's swimmerets with their claws Soon they leave home and as they their tiny shells are molted for larger ones The crayfish shell is built of calcium chemicals extracted from the water and building a larger shell is quite a problem First the chalky minerals in the old shell are dissolved into the blood and rebuilt into the new shell below Then the body swells up with extra water and the papery thin old shell is cast off Extra calcium is added to harden the new shell and after six hours or so the molting job is finished Questions asked by chil- dren ol Herald readers should be mailed to Ask P.O.
