Ask Andy FOOL'S GOLD Andy sends a complete 20 volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Shelly Clements, age 12, of Lansing, Mich., for his question: What exactly is fool's gold? When you are gold prospecting in likely places, any shiny yellow metal tends to look like the real thing. But sometimes the promising sample turns out to be pyrite, which is a chemical compound of iron and sulfur. Because pyrite is less costly than gold, people called it fooFs gold. But let's not be fooled by this notion for sometimes a chunk of pyrite may be more useful than all the gold in Ft. Knox. Some people think of pure gold as money money money. They may get carried away with this notion and come down with the strange disease of the mind called gold fever. In gold rush days, many feverish prospectors felt that gold was so very valuable that nothing else had any value at all. Certainly they were determined never to be fooled by something they called fool's gold. Often this shiny yellow mineral is found in deposits of real gold. Usually it is iron pyrite. a compound of iron and sulfur. But no matter how much it looked like the real thing, those gold hungry prospectors refused to be fooled. The golden sample was heated and whacked with a hammer. If it tarnished or melted with a repulsive smell, if it shattered under the hammer, then it was discard- ed as fool's gold alias pyrite. Suppose you were camping and lost all your gear, including the matches. A nugget of gold would be downright useless. But a piece of pyrite could at least give you a nice warm meal. For Ihe hard, brittle mineral can be used to strike the spark to light a campfire which could save your life. Pvrjte also can be more LI'L ABNER useful than real gold in the busy world of industry. There, its high sulfur content is ex- tracted to manufacture sul- furic acid. This hot tempered chemical' works behind the scenes in refining petroleum and in manufacturing certain steels. It also is used in cer- tain printing processes, in making soaps, glues and dozens of other everyday items. Some pyrites also contain useable traces of nickelt cobalt, lead or zinc. Others contain enough copper to be rated as copper ores. Obvious- ly there is nothing foolish in a deposit of so called fool's gold. True, the gold is more costly, but the pyrite may be more useful. Pyrites are quite plentiful minerals. Flaky and chunky deposits often occur in slates, shales and various lava rocks. Some deposits also occur in gold bearing quartz rocks. In this case, a flake of fool's gold might tell a prospector that real gold is quite close. Questions asked by chil- dren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.

It's an even number of consecutive positive numbers arranged in a checkerboard style square. Each column, each row. and each diagonal adds up to the same magic total In that case that magic total happens to be just five times the smallest number in the square. So what must il be? 1 Answer Monday Yesterday's answer: LADY was 6594. Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I'm 37. For about six years I've had a severe case of ulcerative colitis. Seldom do I see any ar- ticles about it, and I find most people don't know what it is or anything about it. A few weeks ago when I was released from the hospital, my doctor, the leading inter- nist in this area, suggested an operation. This involves all of my colon and part of intestine. My former doctor cautioned me continually about cancer. Some of my latest spells have been more emotional and I've had vomiting. Others have suggested I try having either allergy tests made or ad- mitting myself to the state mental hospital for help before I go through the operation What would vou suggest? Dear Reader I wish there was a good answer. The cause of ulcerative colitis is not known. And, we know just about as much about its treatment. As you know the most com- mon features of the disease are diarrhea, often with blood and mucus, and lower ab- dominal crampy pain. The symptoms are variable. Some people even have changes in the rectum or lower colon and have few, if any, noticeable symptoms. Others have severe diarrhea, hemorrhage and complications such as perforation of the colon. It can be, and no doubt in your case is, a difficult dis- ease. It can become chronic with recurring attacks of severe diarrhea and bleeding. Weight loss is common with it. Milk and milk products seem to cause attacks in some patients. At one time it was believed that an allergic reac- tion to milk might be the cause. In any case I believe any one with this problem should avoid milk and milk products and goods made with lots of milk, like milk gravy and sauces. Some cases seem to be started off with a diarrhea infectious illness. In some ways the disease acts like the immune mechanism of the body has gone haywire and the body is trying to reject the lin- ing of the colon as foreign tissue. The disease, inciden- tally, can involve the rectum, colon, and terminal part of the small intestine. 1 can't judge what you should do about surgery, but I can suggest that your fine internist has a good basis for his recommendation. Six years of trouble with involve- ment of the colon and ter- minal ileum tells me you have a severe case. Many patients do surprisingly well after sur- gery. Cancer of the colon is much more common in patients with ulcerative colitis. And, less than 30 per cent of them sur- vive five years if a cancer oc- curs. That is why your first doctor was concerned. Don't waste your time on allergy tests. They won't help nrAhlorrj Afld forget about the emotional problems, they often go along with the disease, and you may find out that your problems in this area are markedly im- proved when you have improv- ed physically. Now, not everyone needs surgery for ul- cerative colitis, but in selected cases that have not gone into remission and have not done well with good medical treatment, then it is often a good choice. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this new- spaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019. For a copy of Dr. Lamb's booklet on spastic colon, send 50 cents to the same address and ask for the "Spastic Colon" booklet. Flashback By THE CANADIAN PRESS Nov. 22, 1974 The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair, one of the largest indoor agricultural shows in the world first opened in Toronto 52 years ago in 1922. The fair's popularity hit a peak in 1946 when the first postwar fair was held. 1852 The first submarine cable in North America was laid from Carleton Head, P.E.I., to Cape Tormentine, N.B. Goren on Bridge BY CHARLES H. GOREN AND OMAR SHARIF North-South vulnerable. South deals. NORTH AQ43 W AK5 103 A984 WEST EAST 4J752 41065 SOUTH 47 98643 AKQ4 The bidding: South West North East 1 V Pass 1 Pass 2 Pass 3 V Pass 4 Pass 5 Pass 5 Pass 6 V Pass Pass Pass Opening lead: Two of Slam bonuses are so lucra- tive that aggressive players bid their cards to the hilt in their quest for a big score. This slam was slightly am- bitious, but South demon- strated the sort of skill that fully justified the optimistic auction. North had a difficult, n-bid to make at his second turn. His choice lay between three hearts and three clubs and he decided on the former to emphasize his fine support. he made hid. m- in- tended to continue with 1he slam 1ry of five clubs if his partner merely rehid four hearts. Soulh look thi- opportunity to show his dia- mond strength, and North decided that the hand might easily produce twelve tricks. West led his fourth-best spade, and South was not overly pleased with his con- tract. To start with, trumps had to break 3-2, for with any other division, it would be nigh impossible to limit the trump losers to one trick. Then, it appeared that the club finesse would also have to work. However, declarer found a line that brought home the contract without a finesse! He won the ace of spades and immediately ruffed a spade. The ace and king of hearts were cashed, and de- clarer heaved a sigh of relief when both defenders follow- ed. After ruffing a second spade, he cashed the ace and king of diamonds and ruffed a diamond in dummy. Now dummy's last spade was ruffed, and when both de- fenders followed, declarer became a favorite to make his contract. He led the queen of dia- monds, and West was faced with an insoluble problem. If he ruffed with the master trump, he would be end- played. Declarer would iet the club return run up to his king-jack, thus bringing in the suit without loss. But he would he no better off if he did not ruff. He would have in discard a ciuh and then de- clarer would simply cash the lung and ac? of clubs, allow- ing WeM 1o win last trick with his master trump.
