Would you ate the condition except medi- cine to relieve pain, so the dis- ease usually nut, its course. pain. please tell rae what to do and how long it will last? Dear Reader are caused by the same virus that causes chicken pox. Char- acteristically, "shingles" or Herpes zoster occurs in adults, although it can occur in child- ren. In most cases, the adult nas previously had chicken pox c. f_______ _ The virus may remain in a dormant state for years and then be- come active. Usually a nerve root is in- volved. 'The inflamed skin is over the area where the nerve is located. The most common location is along the curvature of a rib. A nerve follows the course of the rib from the spine, half way around the chest. The band of pato may exist for sev- eral days before any changes in the skin are noted. In this time interval the doctor often has t r o u b 1 e discovering the cause of the severe pain. Then a rash, such as that seen in chicken pox, occurs along the rib. The period of acute pain us- ually lasts 10 to 21 days, buHhe area may be sore for some time thereafter. Pain medicine and tincture of time are all that can be offered. If the skin gets infected, the infection lias to be treated, Dear Dr. Lamb I am 62 3-ears old. Recently when I ur- inate 1 notice that I am passing blood. 1 have had prostatitis in the past and I have passed stones. I do not have any pain or hurt any place. Could it be cancer of the kidneys or pros- tate gland? Dear Header Yes, It could. If it is painless bleeding it is probably not stones. The only way you can find out the cause is from a complete examina- tion. It is likely that the doc- tor rail need to look into your bladder or do other studies to locate the source of tie bleed- ing and its cause. Don't wait. See your doctor right away since blood in. the urine, particularly without pain, can be caused by cancer and, if that is the cause, the earlier you receivi treatment the bet- ter. Regardless of the c a u s e, you need treatment. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) Andy sends a complete 20- voliime set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Mau- reen Anne Anderson, age 9, of Duluth, Minnesota, for her question: What exactly Is slate? Slats is one of the earths rocky minerals. It is a very old rock that has been re- modeled. Ages ago it was a soggy layer of mud and clay, perhaps on the bottom of a lake or a shallow sea. Later, this part of the earth changed. The soggy mud was left high and dry to harden in the sun. As time went by, layfirs of dust and debris piled on top and crushed down on the dried mud. Finally it became a bed of hard, flakey shale rock, maybe twisted and bent. It stayed this way for ages, get- ting harder while more rocky layers piled on top. There are very many beds of diale in the earth's rocky crust. One was in New England when the Appalachian Mountains were growing up. The earth heaved up enormous slabs rocks, bent them and cracked them and stacked them up liks giant sandwiches. As the young mountains grew, there were earthquakes and fiery volca- noes. All this started about 300 million years ago and went on for ages: Naturally the tremendous upheaval upset that old layer of shale. In fact, the heat and the crushing pressure com- pletely remodeled it and changed the shale to slate. Its last traces of moisture were crushed out, so were its traces of oxygen and carbon dioxide. Its tiny flakes of shiny mica were arranged in flat, smooth layers like thin sheets of tissue between the hard rocky pages. Tiny fragments of sooty carbon were sealed into the hard pages. They are too small for our eyes to see, but they added various shades of blue-grey and slaley-grey. In some places, other ingredients color- ed slates with reds and rusty j browns, with purples or green- ish tones. There are layers os sturdy! slate in both our eastern and western mountains. Sometimes they are quarried near the sur- face. Sometimes they are bu- ried deeper and under heavy layers of other rocks. The big slabs are hard and brittle, smooth and flal. II is.rosy to crack them apart into flat. rocky pages. This i.s becmiso those layers oi mica were sandwiched in the rock. The flakes of silky mica are too small for our eyes to But they make it easy to separate the slate into flat pages and coat them with smooth, shiny surfaces. Naturally you like to learn large, important words. There are a few fine ones that go with the story' of slate. Min- erals made from dried-out lay- ers of muddy clay are called sedimentary rocks. Most of them were dregs and svho dreamed up the idea of issuing baseball-type caps to 13 clay-shift officers as an op- tional substitute for helmets. Tuesday ended a 30-day trial period for the caps, and now the force will go back to helmets for a month while it assesses reaction from police and citizenry and decides the future of the soft-top look. One member of the 62-raaa force said officers sporting the navy blue cap1! in this coastal Southern California town "have been called every- thing from Little Leaguers to railroad conductors" by amused passers-by. The caps were not offered to motorcycle policemen or officers on the more hazard- ous night shift.

They are fed up with laws that allow four-letter words in shows like Oh! Calcutta! and Hair yet threaten comics with heavy fines for using similar language. GOHEN ON BRIDGE 8V CHARLES H.

West opened the nine of and South won ihe first trick in his hand with the queen. Declarer could count 31 winners- off Urn spades, two hearts, threa diamonds and three clubs. A ]2lh trick would develop automatically if either diamonds or clubs divided three-three. 'FaiVng this, South could fall back on a finesse in hearts. Declarer- tfia diamonds first, cashing the top three honors. On Ihe third round. East showed out, discarding a heart. The clubs camo nest, however it was queen he shed spade. In order to obtain a better count on the tend, tteclavtr played the ace and king of spades, on which East dis- carded another heart. At this point South could place West originally .with five spades, four diamonds and two clubs, which meant that he had only two hearts and that East had started with live of that suit. By rough calculation, de- clarer figured that the odd! were five to two that East had the queen of hearts. Ha accordingly led over to tha ace of hearts and returned the five. East followed with the nine and the Wai played from the closed hand.' West4 turned up with queen and he proceeded tu cash the eight of spadei to register a two trick set.

In other words, East's last lour cards are clearly Identi- fied as the ten of clubs and three hearts.
