An- gina pcctoris is the constrictinf or squeezing discomfort or pah in the chest associated with heart disease. Angina last less lhan 10 minutes.

You can akc riitro glycerin tablets to jrevent angina as your doctor as recommended. Nilroglyccrin tablets will not stay fresh unless they are kept in a special container. The small glass bottles with the 100 pills Ibat pel from the drug store is carefully sealed to keq the pills fresh. In this stale they will stay fresh for months or years. Once Uie seal is brok- en and the tablets- are cxposcr lo the air and normal environ merit, they will gradually deter iorate. The rate of deterioration varies but you should not keej pills longer than six months after Ihe seal on the initial hoi tie is broken or in a plasti box or other ordinary container Even this may be stretching it a little for some preparations Most of them, if kept in Iheir original bottle even though th ecal is broken, should be gooc for a period of three to si months, however.

A heart was led to North's nine and a third spade was trumped in the closed hand with the ten of hearts as both opponents followed suit. The ace, king, queen of clubs were cashed next and when the sequence of plays survived without casualty, South was ready. A heart was led to the jack and tho West showed out, Lhe lasl heart was permitted lo re- main at large. A space was led from dummy on which East gave up his last club.

Aridy sends a complete 20- volume set of HID Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Paul Standar, age of Tilley, Al- berta, for his question: Atlantis a real place? Plato, the pliilosopher of an- cient Greece, claimed that he learned about Atlantis from somebody who he.ird the story from his grandfather, who heard it from some priests in Egypt. He described its major city in fantastic detail, and also related how the lost island con tinent sank beneath the sea about 9000 years before his lime. Plato's hard-nosed stu- dent, Aristotle, claimed that his teacher invented the myth- ical place to convey his theor- ies of aji ideal society. Most of us long lo believe in an earthly paradise, such ai some ancient Utopia. If an ideal society existed once, it is pos- blc again.
