Believe it or not, what do you make of that MADAM? ADAM SAYS YES I'M ADAM MADAM (Answer tomorrow) Flashback By THE CANADIAN PRESS Oct. 10, 1974 The Fathers of Confedera- tion 33 delegates from Canada, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland met at Quebec City 110 years ago in 1864 to discuss the feasibility of a political union of British North America. The conference passed 72 resolutions as an outline to the proposed federal union and these later became the basis of negotiations at the 1866-67 London conference and even- tually formed the core of the British North America Act. 1886 Tail-less dress coat first worn at Tuxedo Club, Tuxedo, N Y.

Pass Pass 2 2 Pass 4 4 Pass Pass Pass Opening lead: King of Declarer pieced together bits-of information obtained from the auction and the early play, then applied his knowledge to make a sen- sational play and so bring home his game. that North could not bid three spades at his first turn, for that would have been preemptive action over the takeout double. Also, he did not have to bid more than two spades at his second turn, because his redouble had guaranteed at least 10 points. South needed little urging to go on to game. West led the king of dia monds and shifted to the queen of hearts, and at firsl glance it seemed thai dc olarer had little So worrv about. He could win and draw trunjis, then finesse West for the king of clubs The club suit would provide a discard for a diamond, so declarer would make five odd. Declarer was about to take the ace of hearts when he suddenly realized-that there was a flaw in his reasoning West had shown the ace-king of diamonds and queen-jack of hearts, and he was short in spades. Yet he passed in first seat Therefore, he could not hold the king of clubs as well. If declarer took the club finesse, he would be defeated when East return ed a diamond after winning the king of clubs. Declarer found an in genious method of keeping East off lead while setting up a club for a diamond discard. He allowed the queen of hearts to win the second trick! West continued with a heart to declarer's ace. After drawing the defenders' trumps with the ace and king of spades, declarer discard- ed a club ..on the king of hearts. Then he cashed the ace of clubs and led the jack of clubs through East for a ruffing finesse. Had East not covered, decjarer intended discarding a diamond from his hand. When East played the king, declarer ruffed, re- turned to dummy with a trump and discarded a dia mond on the ten of clubs. Thus South made his con tract, losing two diamond irirks and a heart! Ask Andy THE MOON Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Jean Carlson, age 13, of Gilbert, Minnesota, for her question: Why do we never see the back of the moon? When you trip through a merry square dance, there comes a time to swing your partner. The two of you grasp hands and spin around each other face to face. This is no time to study the back of your partner's head. In a way, the earth and the moon act like a couple of hoedown dancers. But though the moon always faces the earth, the earth turns different sides to face the moon. The moon orbits around the earth and together the two of them orbit around the sun. This heavenly hoedown goes on day and night, year after year. It has been going on for at least four billion years and is expected to continue indefinitely. The dizzy whirl is powered by the force of gravity which makes the two heavenly bodies pull at each" other. Since the earth is more massive than the moon, its gravity is much stronger. If it had its way, this stronger gravity would pull the less massive moon crashing down to 'the earth. But the force of gravity has an opponent, which pulls against it. The moon's orbiting speed counteracts the pull of the earth's stronger gravity. So, instead of crashing down, it swings in a curved orbital path around the earth. However, this is not the whole story. Both the earth and the moon rotate like spinning tops. Their rotation speeds are related to the pull of gravity which is related HI AND LWS to the distance between them. At the present distance of about miles, the earth rotates once every 24 hours. But if the moon were closer, the effects of its gravity would be stronger. Then the earth would be forced to rotate faster and our day- and night period would be shorter. Meantime the earth's gravity influences the rotation of the moon, only more so. It allows the moon to rotate, but only very, very slowly. As a matter of fact, the moon rotates on its axis only once during its orbital period around the earth. It acts like one member of a swing your partner team spinning around while keeping the same side facing the earth. This is why we never see the other side of the moon. The lunar month is the time it takes to orbit the earth. The lunar 'day is the time it takes to rotate on its axis. And the two time periods are more or less equal. During this period, first one side then another side of the moon face the sun. At any point, the lunar day lasts about two so does the lunar night. Meantime the earth does BUGS BUNNY not co-operate fully with this swing your partner routine. It merely wobbles a little and spins around to face the moon with all sides of its globe, once every 24 hours. The moon sees four earth phases every 24 hours, though it takes a whole month to show us its four lunar phases. QuMttons Mind by chil- dren of Herald readers be mailed to Aek Andy, P.O. Box.

My doc- tor told me that this wouldn't present any problems, as I bad considerably more than needed. He did mention that I might be able to eat more. My problem is that although my eating habits have remained unchanged. I keep gaining weight. I have never'had a weight problem and can't un- derstand what's happening, now.' I would appreciate it if you would tell me if there could be any connection between the surgery and the gain in weight. Also, how long should an incision such as this re- main tender and itchy? Dear Reader I'm not sure why your doctor thought you could eat more. The colon has nothing to do with the absorp- tion of food or calories. That is all accomplished in the small intestine and mostly in the first few feet near the stomach. The colon serves to reabsorb water. If you had the colon and part of the small intestine removed or if the operation caused you to have an overactive small intestine removed or if the operation caused you to have an overac- tive small intestine preventing normal absorption, then it might You may have heard of operations to prevent obesity. They bypass or detour. a large section of the small intestine (not the large And, they frequent- ly cause problems. I suspect that the reason for your weight gain is lack of physical activity after sur- gery. I note your statement about the incision being tender. If you can become more active perhaps you will not continue to have a weight problem. Some people have tender incisions for months and other have no problems even within a few weeks. You should ask your surgeon about it Dear Dr. Lamb I've en- joyed eating raw ground beef ever since I can remember. Several people have told me that it is harmful to may health, and I can pick up dis- Ul eases that way. So far I am quite healthy, but I am begum- ing to worry that my friends may be right. Could you please set me straight on this? I also enjoy eating raw potatoes, peas, cabbage and other raw vegetables. Dear Reader I used to think eating raw ground beef was okay. I don't any more. Ideally you should be getting meat from healthy and it shouldn't be a problem. But it just doesn't work out that way. Cooking Is.the one way mankind has been able to survive all the germ infested foods he has eaten throughout history. Tea, for instance, provides germ-free water to many parts of the world because the bad water is boil- ed in the process. Pork is particularly likely to be infested with trichinosis. And, in the marketplace the same meat grinder that grinds pork products may then grind beef. Then some so called ground beef may contain raw pork. If you want to be sure you have ground beef without contamination without con- contamination with pork, I'd suggest buying good beef and then grinding it at home. So, I think all meat you eat should be properly cooked, including beef. Vegetables are another matter. Just be suie they are clean. Well cleaned vegetables are often better food raw than cooked. In some parts of the world it is ad- visable to wash the vegetables and fruit with a suitable dis- infectant then wash them in water adequately. This is par- ticularly true if human fer- tilizer is used. Send yoa questions to Dr. Lamb, hi care of this new- spaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 1M19.
