Before the day warms up, he stuffs sand info his burrow exits, sealing in sup- plies of cool, humid air. These chores conserve the scanty moisture available on the arid praivie. But they do not provide his daily drinking water. warm moisture from the lungs. The kangaroo rat has superior kidneys that concentrate waste chemicals and recycle surplus water. His nose and lungs man- age to coot the air and hence reduce loss of moisture. But even these features do not pro- vide that needed drinking water.

SOUTH 1 NT 4 NT 5 0 Pass 4 5 West Pass Pass. 0 K3 AJ The bidding: North East South Pass Pass Pass Pass Opening lean: Three of Altho South was the victim of bad luck in his six heart contract, he could have over- come adversity on the deal by more careful manage- ment of dummy's resources. When Xorth opened Ihe bidding with one no trump, South had the values to look for slam since his holding is worth 17 points including some key controls. His four club call as an immediate response is the Gerber con- vention, asking for aces. Note that a direct bid of four no trurrrp is a raise, not Elackwoixi. North's reply of four no trump announced three aces. South rebid five clubs to check for kings and North's five diamond call showed none, so South signed off at six hearts. West opened the three of spades, the queen was played from dummy and East won the trick with the king. East continued with the jack to dislodge North's ace. A diamond was led to the king, a small one re- turned to the ace and a third rcund trumped with the ten of hearts on which West showed out, discarding a spade. When the diamonds did not break evenly, South gave up, on that suit since there was only one entry remain- ing in dummy. A heart put North in to try the club fi- nesse. When West turned up with the king, the contract was set by one trick. Declarer was unlucky in finding .both black kings un- favorably placed, since the odds "were roughly three to one in his favor. He could have improved his chances considerably by successfully establishing North's diamond suit. A vital discard can be obtained provided that dia- monds divide no worse than four-two, which offers de- clarer about an 84% chance of success. In order to retain an extra entry to the dum- my, South must preserve the ace of spades from attack which he can accomplish by playing a small spade from the North hand at trick one instead of the queen. East is in with the jack of spades, but he cannot contin- ue the suit without present- ing his opponent with a free finesse. If East shifts to a club, declarer plays the ace, cashes the king and ace of diamonds and ruffs a third round with the ten ol hearts. The king and ace of hearts corne next and a fourth dia- mond is trumped by the jack of hearts. The queen picks up Wes'.'s remaining trump and the ace of spades pro- vides access to North's hand to cash the diamond on which declarer disposes of the jack of clubs. He loses only one trick in spades.

Individuals who have attack; if gouty arthritis need medi cine all the time and not jusl or the attacks. The idea is .0 take medicines regularly trevent the attacks in the firsi >lace. You also need to take medi cine to prevent the later de- velopment of gouty arthritis which is not like the acute at- tacks, but which can cause de- formity of the joinis. Without medicine there may be a slow accumulation of despo.sits in the joints that causes chronic gouty arthritis. Air; hoi and dicitary hinges often precipitate an acute attack as do emotional factors and some other aspects of living, but prevention of these attacks doesn't obviate the point that you need to taking medicine regularly and this means that you need a doctor. Dear Dr. Lamb I would like to know if it is necessary for a woman 63 years old who has been a widow for seven years to have a Pap smear every year. (Only the womb is mil.) I have had four chil- in.
