Many pigeons do nest In trees and share the woods with the wild birds. Others are cily dwellers who insit on sharing man-made buildings. Almost all wild animals fear people and shun our crowded cities, But not these pigeons, They he? for fowl and refuse In he rous'.cd from their per- ches on city hall, the library and especially from the ornate stone work alnp the churches.

Altman TVBS reluctant to for what at best figured to be a negligible profit and he show- ed his second suit by bidding five hearts. West took a pref- erence back (o spades. North might have been bet- ter advised to double five epades inasmuch as lie held some defensive values in the form of the ace of. clubs and queen of spades. Had he done co, North and South could hare scored two spada (ricks, one diamond, end ona club for a 3 profit on tha deal. Whsn North passed in- stead, South was reluctant to defend and, reasoning that a sacrifice rated to be inexpen- sive, he proceeded lo six dia- monds which West dnubled. If ftorth had held Ihe lone see of clubs, there would have been no way to defeat the slam, but after West opened a heart mi East cashed his ace, there was no way lo prevent the nciense from scoring the setting trick in clubs and a 100 point profit on the deal.

M. I', mnrgin hy whicb Uiry von Iha match, naturally fond of people. These were Hie slalcy grey rock dove pigeons of Europe, Asia nnri Africa. They were cliff dwel- lers who built their rather shcibby nests KI the ledges and in the clefts of steep rocks. They were born pcrchers and j the sheer drop to level ground did not bother them at all. Ages ago. people discovered that these mid rock doves were more than willing to be friend. ly. especially when hanclfuls of food were offered. This may have been something to do with their natural character traits. Parent pigeons are perhaps tha world's most sentimental hon- eymooners and exceedingly de- voted lo their chicks. Apparent- ly they prefer to spend most o[ their lime end energy on fam- ily affection. The parents mere- ly gather a lew sticks for a makeshift nest. When they have to, they hunt diligently to feed their precious chicks, but they prefer to save this time by cadging handouts from their human friends. Perhaps people first offered free lunches to entice these rock doves into captivity. Then the lame birds were bred Into all sorts of fancy strains. It discovered that one strain always flew home from afar and this homing pigeon was used for carrying messages. Perhaps the wild rock doves cast n bright yellow eye of envy on their tame and partly lame relatives. They also watched people build tall, stee-sided buildings, very much like their rocky cliffs. Nobody knows just when they gave up nesting in the wild and became city dwellers. Maybe Ihe first ones were holf- tame birds kept on somebody's roof. Perhaps others escaped from cooped up pigeon lofts. In any case, the city pigeon population multiplied and grew bolder. Perhaps some of their wild relatives may have joined tho cily dvrclliix! flocks. City pigeons create messy problems but efforts to roust them usually fail. The pigeons feel quite at. home where they are and stubbornly refuse to he evicted. And, pigeons have a lot of strong minded human al- lies. When a town slai-l.s an aiili-pigeon drive, all sorts nl pressures and protests rise up to defend these cily dwelling birds. It is not likely that many of them will be driven to build nests in the wild woods at least nol in the forsecable fu IUTP Andy .sends S10 to Alicia Ojeda, age KI, of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, for her queslion: How last can a roaclrunncr run?

IH72I that In some, states they ask if you have epilepsy when you get a driver's license? They clon'l ask about other diseases. I am sorry I cannot sign my name. You see i am nut UUMK honest eillKT hecnuue my fam- ily doesn't know about me, Dear Tteailer You got a difference of opinion from two doctors because the answer is nol yes or no. In the first place, il by epilepsy one means con- vulsions, there are several dif- ferent types. Rare instances are caused by brain Injury and brain tumors. Brain damage caused by injuries can be cor- rected in some instances. The more common form of epilepsy with no apparent cause has been labeled as gene- tic, meaning It has some rela- tionship to heredity. That does not mean a person who has epilepsy will have children who have liu's problem. Many Indi- viduals with tliis problem do not have a family lu'story of epilepsy. Only about three to live per cent of Ihe relatives of patients with Ibis type of epilepsy also have it. I flwo individuals who both have epilepsy marry, the like- lihood that Ihoir clu'ldren hav- ing epilepsy is significantly in- creased If an individual with epilepsy wanted to be reason- ably certain not to have chil- dren with this problem, he should seek genlic counseling to determine insofar as possi- ble there is any increased likelihood of having children with epilepsy. Regarding driver's licenses, all stales will permit, certain epilcplics lo obtain driver's Ucense. Tliis has not always been true. Sorno states re- quire, ''in the interest of road a doctor's certificata lo indicate a period of freedom from convulsive episodes. An individual who has been free of episodes and is well control- led with his meriicino is nol likely to have any difficulty In obtaining a license in most slates. By the way. a state wliich lias a good control pro- gram in this area usually has insurance policies that are much cheaper for epileptics lhan those who do not. Tbfi Individual with epilep- sy well controlled by medicines is certainly a much safer driv- er than the large number of individuals who have had one too many cocktails. Thero are probably more accidents caused by heart disease lhan by epilep- sy, if for no other reason than the high Incidence of heart dis- ease in our socity. In general tha whole concept of medical fitness for driving which should include medical, psychiatirc, and drug use, including alco- hol, needs a good overhaul. There would be a lot of diffi- culties in implementing any of the people responsible for any sucli legislation, merely by vir- tue of Ihcir own age and their own disabling diseases, would oppose it. It sounds like you are doing real well. My only concern is yotir secretiveness about your disorder. After ;ill il. is just an- olher illness and there are shout es many people who have epilepsy ns have diabetes. (Newspaper Assn.) Bridge results Lrfdios Wed. Afternoon D.B.C. May 17 1. Mrs. I.
