have my leg amputated Thanks so much for your opinion Dear Reader Commer- cial air travel is no big deal Most people are concerned about the 'lack of oxygen and it usually isn't a factor Commercial transport planes all must maintain a cabin pressure below 7 000 feet That means it is about equivalent to being in Mexico City or a little higher than Denver (about 5 000 feet) We usually don t think that altitudes below 5 000 feet have Goren on Bridge BY CHARLES H GOREN c The cniuto North- South vulnerable West deals NORTH A A Q 10 8 4 Q987 0 K A K9 WEST EAST AS J9732 Void v1 6 5 4 2 OAQ 10

dressed in rags, wan- dering aimlessly along the Embankment "Used to be a good ondge piayer, l was told, "until he developed an unfortunite habit of squan- dering his trumps I could only agree that it was in- deed a strange quirk, but that it was not necessarily wrong Consider today's hand West made life difficult for his opponents by taking ad- vantage of the vulnerability to preempt as high as he could, afford Rather than bid his suit, North gave his side opportunity of reaching their best spot by electing to double, and South was faced with a problem If he merely bid five hearts, his partner would never re- alize that he had a full open- ing bid and a near solid suit On the other hand, it was quite likely that his side had two quick diamond losers The prudent course would have been to bid a conserva- tive five hearts, but South was made of sterner stuff He was not going to let the opponents bulldoze him out of a slam, so he decided to gamble on the diamond situ ation and bid six hearts West led the ace of dia- monds, and when dummy came down declarer was op- timistic There was an im- mediate discard available on the spade suit, and it looked as if the suit could be devel- oped for a second club dis- card Declarer s second dia- mond could be ruffed in dummy West continued with a sec- ond diamond, ruffed in dum- my, and East was put to the test He realized that he couldn't afford to discard a club, for that would promote dummy's nine to a trick A spade discard was also inad- visable, because that would allow declarer to set up dummy s fifth spade with a ruff By eliminating the black suits, East's problem was easily bluffed a trump' Declarer was helpless If he ran trumps, East would discard whatever dummy sluffed The combination of the S-i spade split and the fact that West held the eight of clubs as a potential guard in the suit, together with East s bravura performance in underruffmg, forced South to succumb much of an effect on how the body functions There are a few exceptions specifically those individuals who already have lung disease So if you could tolerate many of the areas around Denver you won t have any problem with the altitude Usually the cabin altitude in the plane will be well below 7 000 feet If you wanted to cross the United States by auto or bus you would need to go over mountains higher than 10 000 feet In these instances the altitude problem would be more significant than it is in air travel Some people have problems with having to remain inac- tive for a long time in air travel but since trips are usually short in time this isn't a major problem any more One of the more significant stresses of air travel is really at the terminal The tension associated with getting your flight and changes in schedule is very hard on some people Then if vou try to carry your own luggage, and it is heavy that may be the biggest of all on your circulation Men who rush down tne terminal with heavy bags are really working their heart a good deal This stress can be minimized by planning your trip with suf- ficient time for baggage handling and limited concern about meeting your time schedules A second hazard to flying is cigarette smoking Some peo- ple have medical problems that are adversely affected by cigarette smoke They may have almost an allergic reac- tion Some severe asthmatic people and others with lung disease are good examples Even the token gesture of separating the people in no smoking areas won t protect them from the "poison gas of the smokers Cigarette smoke (carbon in- cidentally, binds with the hemoglobin in the blood and decreases a person s tolerance to altitude Some individuals have problems caused by extreme nervousness about flying These are anxiety reactions and are best handled by reassurance and, if needed, tranquilizers Other in- dividuals are particularly susceptible to motion sickness but these are un- common and often are aggravated b> anxiety (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)
