West opened the deuce of hearts, the four was played from dummy and East put in the queen to win the trick. He cashed the ace next on which his partner showed out, discarding a small dia- mond. A third heart was led to kill declarer's sluff, how- :ver South wss now in posi- tion to assume the initiative. He ruffed in with the ten of tpados, drew three rounds of trumps find then led the aco and ten of diamonds. West put up Die king of diamonds, liut North's queen was now established for a club discard and the ace of clubs provided access to the dummy for that purpose. Siuth's losses on the deal consisted of two hearts and one diamond. If East had shifted to a club at trick three, after cashing out his hearts, de- clarer would have been un- able to develop the diamond discard because dummy's en- try would have been dis- lodged prematurely. Since trumps have not yet been drawn, it does South no good to take an immediate club discard on the king of hearts because West can ruff in, ex t wiih the king of clubs and sit back to score the set- ting trick subsequently with the king of diamonds. West should have simpli- fied the defense for his part- ner by making a more posi- tive discard on the ace of hearts. It should be clear to htm that a third round of hearts will not promote any- thing for him in the trump suit. It should not be difficult for him to place the declarer with the ace of diamonds, and once he docs, the urgen- cy of an Immediate club shift by his partner should, make itself known. In order to get the message across, West must discard the Jack of clubs on the ace of hearts. If he does, East has no other choice but to moke the club shift which assures eventual dcfcal for ttx> declarer. cle. i The aim is to bypass a block- i age of the heart arteries. Pre- I viously, the operation was done j only on patients whose hearts I were laboring under partial blockage of blood supply. Out of 150 patients in the Ot- tawa civic's cardiac unit be- tween Jan. 1 and Sept. 1, six fell into cardiac shock marked by virtually no blood pressure and a cutoff of blood supply to the brain. The four who came through Ihc emergency bypass opera- lions were discharged from hos- pital between 23 and 51 days later with circulation satisfac torily restored to their hearts. Two died during the operation, including a 48-year-old man who had had two previous heart at- tacks and a Ofryear-oM man who had had one. First step in emergency appli- cation of the procedure is to take an angiogram, an x-ray of dye injcted into the circulatory system, to locate the point of artery blockage. PUT ON MACIIINK Patients then are put on a heart-lung machine which as- sists their breathing and hcarl functioning. The vein for graft- ing is removed from the upper leg and is grafted to the aorta arc! Iho coronary artery. Dr. Keon said there have been some bypass operations per- formed as emergencies else- in Boston and an- other in San Diego. But his six are Ihc most extensive series.

But some of his relatives live as far south as the Mediterranean and other lurbots live in seas around the world. If you enjoy seafood, most likely your favorite is some sort of flat fishes. You have a choice of hundreds of varieties, including many species of sole and halibut, flounder and tur- hot. Often the names become confused, but the fine white meat is almost sure lo be tasty and tender. The flatfishes are lopsided oddities and most of them live on the shallow sea beds of the continental shelves along the shores. The young are cute little swimmers that look like minia- ture ordinary fishes. But not for long. In a few days or weeks they sink to the bottom and strange changes begin to bap- pen to them. One eye moves over the nose so that both eyes are on the same side. The mouth twists awry so that most of the teeth are on the eye side. The blind side loses its color and remains pasty white. The flatfish spends most of his time lying on this side. The other side is camouflaged with colors that blend wilh the sur- its two eyes stare up through his watery world. There is no set rule aboul which eye moves over. But as a rule, a sole's left eye migrates to the right and he is a right- eyed fish. The turbot, almost always, is a left-eyed flatfish. And a turbot tends lo grow much larger lhan a sole. His plale-shaped body bulges in the middle and may be more than two feet long. The upper and lower edges are fringed with long fins and he has a stubby like fan-shaped tail. He can swim, usually close to the floor. But he cannot make long voy- ages because flatfishes do not have the air bladders that en- able other fishes to change lev- els. Turbots have been favorite food fishes for ages and their names have been changed around more than most of their relatives. Some people refer to all the left-eyed flounders as turbots. And turbols of differ- ent species inhabit different parts of the world. In Europe, the turbot is classified as Scop- thalmus name that might mean the big, round brush. His dark upper side is somewhat speckled and bumpy to blend with the shallow waters near the shores. This turbot species is found in the mild Mediterranean Sea, off the shores of Northern and Eastern Europe and all the way north to the chilly waters around Greenland. If the turbots had their way, their children would teem in the seas around almost every country in the world. One fe- male may lay ten million eggs at a time, hoping for the best. Most of the eggs and the baby swimmers are eaten by bigger fishes, gulls and other creatures of the hungry sea. Only one or two lucky ones grow big enough to weigh 30 or 40 pounds. But once in a while, a fortunate turbot reaches a weight of or even a record 90 pounds. Questions asxea by cnlldren of Herald readers should be mailed to Asfe Andy, P.O.
