Pass Pass Pass Opening lead: Eight of A Last June, Italy's renowned Blue Team emerged from z two-year retirement to com- pete in the Fourth World Bridge Olympiad held in Miami Beach. They led a record-breaking field of 39 nations in the qualifying rounds and, in the finals, handily defeated the reign- ing world champion United States entry, the Dallas Aces, to retain the title they had won in the Third Olym- piad four years ago in Deau- tille, France. Today's hand is taken front an early deal of the final round and launched the Ital- ians to a lead which was never The bid- ding in the diagram occurred at the table where the Ameri- cans were seated North and South. A small slam in dia- monds was reached on an aggressive sequence of bids. The first round 01 the auc- tion was routine and North s rebid of two spades was sys- was placing an artificial club sjstem that de- manded that a five card ma- jor be rebid. When South showed his second suit, hearts. North gave a simple preference to four diamonds. Perhaps South should have contented himself with a game undertaking by simply proceeding to five diamonds, inasmuch as his hand was worth 15 points and partner had not taken any construc- tive action after his opening bid. South, instead, cue-bid the ace of clubs which was a defi- nite slam try. Inasmuch as North had previously held himself in check, the latter now revalued his band and, realizing that his values in diamonds and hearts would assuredly fill in South's hold- ings in those suits, North proceeded directly to six dia- monds. The next two passed and the Italian player m tne West seat doubled, altho it is somewhat difficult to uncover a sound reason for his action. opened the eight of clubs, the six was played from dummy, and East put in the jack which dislodged declar- er's ace.

The nine of spades was led next and passed around to East's ten after West and North followed with small spades A trump returned and won by dummy's jack South now attempted to establish the spade suit by ruffing a second round of the suit the three of dia- monds. A club ruff put dummy in to trump another spade with the five of dia- monds, as both opponents followed. All declarer needed now was to find a two-two division in trump. He led seven of diamonds over to North's queen. If both defend- ers followed to this play, it w ould account for all the out- standing trumps and dummy s long spade could be estab- lished one more ruff. Unfortunately for the Ameri- can declarer, East showed out of diamonds South able to trump away the king of spades with his ace of had to use up North's remaining trump, the king, fo reenter dummy via a mff. West took the last trick with the ten of diamonds and the United States suffered a 100 point deficit on the deal.

It does not mean that the person has diabetes. It only means that they have rapidly absorbed enough sugar from the intestin- al tract to cause a sudden sharp rise in the level of blood sugar. Other than on these oc- casions there will be no sugar in the urine. Such individuals are not classified as prediabe- tics. A diabetic not only has a sharp rise in the blood sugar level but it stays high for a longer period of time than oc- curs in normal people. A pre- diabetic may have borderline blood sugar levels. This means the response to the test wasn't sufficiently high to be classified I as diabetic but it wasn't suffi- ciently low as to be consider- i ed normal. Som? variations on t-he test use additional chemi- 1 cal stress medicine in an ef- fort to bring out a tendency to 1 diabetes. j Anyone who is truly classi- I fied as a prediabetic or a bor- derhne diabetic should pay some attention to his diet High on this list is controlling body by eliminating any evi- i dence of excess fat from the j body whatsoever. Usually at- j ter.fion to weight control is to delay or prevent the development of full-blown diabetes in a large number of these individuals. Let me say again that the fact that sugar was found in the urine on a glucose tolerance test by itself dees not mean that you are a diabetic, a prediabetic or a borderline diabetic. It only means that you are normal and that the blood sugar level mo- mentarily exceeded the thres- _hold of the kidney's filtering j mechanism.

We can estimate the number of known animal species but a total figure is impossible be- cause v.e can't count the un- knowns. What's more, when Andy says that there are at least a million known species it does not mean that your faithful reporter is shirki-g his homework. Far from it. The fabulous sciences are very complex and the work of ence researchers is very in- vohed. Naturallv >ou hope for an exact figure but this is too much to expect. Neat and easy answers are rare and hard to find and usually inaccur- ate. Some authorities estimate the number of known animal spe- cies to be as high as one and J a quarter million Others give' an even higher figure Most stay on the safe side and say that there are at least one mil- lion None of these EJISVS ers is lazy or sloppy and certainlj there is no intention to be dis- honest Nobody can a perfectly precise count because, for one thing, more species are dis- covered continuously. What's more, identification and classi- fication call for highly compli- cated skills. Sometimes it takes teams of international experts many months to classify a strange animal. For one thing, they have to verify the fact) that he is not a slightly differ-1 erent strain of a ipecies al-1 ready known It would be nice to know each and every animal species that shares our planet, plus his precise role in our luxurious global eco1ogy. But perhaps it is more rewarding to know something about then" differ-, ent types and categories. Sci- entists have a splendid system of classification that identifies and also reveals a great deal about the nature Of the earth's various living animals. The major categories are phyla, plural of phylum The most familiar group is the ver- tebrates of the Phylum Chor- data. More than of these backboned animals are fishes and more than are birds. The group also includes about 6 000 cold-blooded reptiles, in- cluding tlie snakes, and 5.000 warm-blooded mammals, furry creatures who give birth to live young and feed their babes on mother's milk. The largest group by far Is, the Order Insecta, a group in. the huge Phylum Arthropoda More than known in- sect species have been identi- fied but experts estimate that' several hundred thousand re-' main on the Ion? list of un- knowns Nobody knows how man> one-celled animals of the Phy- lum Protozoa are waiting to be discovered. There are known octopus and oyster type1; of the mollusk gioup and or so new species are identified every year. (Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1973) ANYONE AN OPPONENT fOK 5IN6LE5?
