Today's natives are inclined to specialize, each in his own technical field, and usuallv come to possess finely-boned skills. ARIES (March 21-April This is not the day to stick your neck out Instead, leave yourself room to manoeuver More mav be asked of you than is possible to deliver, either on short or long notice TAURUS (April 20-May From a quiet beginning, the day sharpens into confron- tations Cope with your colleagues and their mood on vour own no higher authori- ty is going to be favorable GEMINI (May 21-June Questions, if not problems, arise You can get to the heart of the matter and perhaps resolve it with some candid in- quiry Make a point, however, to stay clear of en- tanglements CANCER (June 21-July Be self-sufficient, as any in- quiry is apt to be taken in an unfavorable light by others. Unfinished business has first priority Your home life will pick up in time. LEO (July 23-Aug. A tendency for changing of minds creates an under- current in today's moderately quiet history. New arguments arise readily from the ashes of old ones forbear raking them VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. Impulse or lavish spending now cuts future projects short Never mind minor dis- agreements, rely on your own intuition What you hear is likely onlv half the story LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. The consequences of past achievement, past error come to balance somehow today You mav redeem a long- standing item of responsibili- ty or settle an old complaint. quite simply SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. Provocative communications are likely Your response tends to involve you in a series of coming events, or save you from them as you choose or have the "luck" to manage SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22- Dec. You'll be glad you resisted the temptation to call a showdown. Later you will see today's issues in far less imposing dimensions and wonder what you were so up- set about CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. Calm. steady workmanship saves the day. Much that was secret is ex- posed now to full and critical view On at least one old controversy your attitude is vindicated. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.

Montreal, Quebec- Yesterday's answer. DE1AL was 1748 Goran on Bridge EAST A K 10 9 7 543 KS Q97 2 BY CHARLES H. GOREN c 1973, The Chicaio North- South vulnerable. South deals. NORTH 4643 72 A Q 10 9 7 4 83 WEST A J82 10986 852 K 10 5 SOUTH A AQ5 A K Q J J3 A J 6 4 The bidding: South West North East 2 NT Pass 3 0 Pass Pass Pass Pass Opening lead: Ten of Things are not always what they seem to be. A fine defensive effort by East wrought declarer's downfall, but a major share of the blame must attach to declar- er himself. South was faced with a difficult decision at his first turn An opening bid of two no trump usually guarantees stoppers in all four suits, and the diamond suit was virtu- ally unprotected. However, he decided that any other opening bid was likely to produce unnecessary compli- cations in the subsequent bidding, and also ran the risk of having his partner pass with enough values to in- sure game. North's diamond response was music to South's ears, and he converted hap- pily to three no trump. The opening heart lead was won in the closed hand and declarer led the jack of diamonds, playing low from dummy. East realized that it would be futile to win the king of diamonds, for dum- my's whole suit could then be brought in. The only hope for the defense was to shut out dummy's diamond so East played low smoothly. Thrilled by the apparent success of the diamond fi- nesse, declarer continued with a diamond to the ten. East won the king and exit- ed with a heart. Declarer was locked in his hand with no way to get to dummy Tho he eventually succeeded in getting the defenders to lead a spade, thereby scor- ing the queen on a finesse, he could only come to eight trick spades, four hearts and a trick in each minor suit. While declarer could have brought in the whole dia- mond suit by playing the ace on the second round, there was no sound reason for do- ing so as the play developed. Declarer's error had been made in his choice of which card to play from dummy on his first diamond lead! Declarer had available a line that would have given him considerable extra play for the contract. He should have overtaken the jack of diamonds with the queen in dummy. East must hold up. and now declarer, who started with seven top tricks, is up to eight. Before repeating the finesse in dia- monds, declarer should test the spades by leading to the queen. When this finesse wins. declarer has his nine tricks and does not need another diamond finesse. He can lead a diamond to the ace, and when the king drops on this trick South ends up with thir- teen tricks. If the spade finesse loses, declarer can al- ways repeat the diamond finesse. Dear Dr. Lamb My hus- band and I are concerned about whether or not we are doing all we can for our son. He was discharged with honors after four years of ac- tive duty in the Navy during the Korean War. Shortly afterwards he broke down completely with what was diagnosed by one of our leading psychiatrists ar paranoid schizophrenia. During all these intervening years we have tried everything, and. as far as we know, there is nothing else left to try There is no use go- ing into the agonies of the situation and the im- possibilities of trying to live with him because of his violence. He also has a drink- ing problem (they say he is not al alcoholic) that greatly aggravates his condition. After trying countless times to make a home for him (he has been in and out of mental institutions of all we have now been forced to abandon him to the veterans hospital Yet. we still have hope that something can be done because he seems so rational so much of the time His worst times are when he is under the influence of large amounts of beer or stronger li- quor. My question is, is there a place that might be able to help him that we do not know- about such as a particular medical center that you know about9 Or do you think everything is done that can be done for such patients in veterans and state hospitals for the mentally ill9 He has been in a private institution for only short periods, and that was quite expensive. We do not have a lot of money but we are willing to spend what little we have if it would restore him to health. Dear Reader Schizophrenia is so varied that I couldn't possible com- ment on a case without know- ing the details, and the outlook is unpredictable from one case to another. It sounds as if you have had a variety of professional evaluations of your son's problems, and, apparently, most of the specialists who have seen him have agreed generally with the diagnosis. No, I don't think everything is being done that could be done in either our state hospitals or in the veterans hospitals, particularly for the mental illness problems. But, for the amount of money available and the trained per- sonnel available, it is pretty good. I doubt you will be able to get any better treatment that would have a significant effect on your son's future. There are no great secrets to treating these problems that wouldn't be known to a com- petent psychiatric staff in any fairly large hospital facility. I really wish I had something to offer so many people who are faced with the problem when mental illness strikes. Perhaps just telling you that chasing after a new opinion or a false hope will be more of an exercise in futility and heartbreak that a reward for you refforts will help you avoid that pitfall Try to protect your own. and your husband's well-being at this point rather than exhaust your few resources.

In unions where winters are mild, crops of wild mushrooms oltcn pop up in the lull And everybody wants lo know how to tell the edible mushrooms I rom the poisonous toadstools The answer is simple and definite None ol these wild fungus plants are to be trusted as human looci Mushroom experts are rare and sometimes even one of them makes a mistake Besides, the wild brothers ol the cultivated mushrooms are almost sine to he intested with or otherwise con- taminated t plants use the energy ol light to manufac- ture their basic food I rom carbon dioxide and water Members of the fungus family do not have the g r e e n c li 1 o r o p h y 1! necessarv to perform this miracle called p h o t o s y n t h e s i s T h e mushrooms are fungi and because MT unable to carry on photos; nthesis. then lite style is very different (rom that ol the axeiagc green plants Though a mushroom can- not manufacture them, it needs rich organic plant chemicals to thrive and grow Since onlv green plants can provide these special hydrocarbons, the mushroom depends on decaying vegetation found in moist, humus type soils. The tact that it needs no sunlight, gives the mushroom plant a special advantage. It can grow out ol .sight, just below the surlace ol the soil. It needs no leaves and no stems. Actually the main mushroom plant is a tangled mat ol pale, Meshy threads The shaggy un- derground rug is called mvcelium It absorbs and assimilates dissolved chemicals and builds more threads ot mycelium around its spreading edges This underground growth goes on as long as the rich soil is moist and lairly warm However, the secretive plan: cannot remain hidden Once or twice a year, it must try to multip- ly The mycelium sprouts a ciop ol lat buttons that poke above the surlace and become those chubby little umbrellas that we call mushrooms Actually they aie the fruiting bodies ol the true mushroom plant, which is the mycelium. The underside of each umbrella is packed with delicate folds ot gill tissue Tucked among these dainty ribbons there are perhaps two billion tiny spores When the spore seeds are npe they prepare to leave home and at the right moment, clouds ot them lake oil on a friendly breexe Most ol them tail to find a suitable landing place. Maybe one lucky mushroom spore in a trillion will tail in moist shady spot where the super-rich soil contains plenty of organic material, prefabricated by the world green plants. It sprouts the lew threads of mvcelium that start a new mushroom plant. Only cultivated mushrooms are grown un- der controlled conditions (hat keep out insects and other contaminations None ol the wild types can be trusted Besides, one of the most dangerous fungus plants looks enough like a sate mushroom to fool anybody but an expert.
