The basic -working unit of the brain is the nene cell has a main body called the neuron attached to long or short fibers called axons. It con- tains a balanced assortment of complex biochemicals and its multiple life processes ate directed by nucleic acids, DNA and UNA. "The miraculous mid- get uses oxygen to create its own supply of electrochemical energy. A delicate network of a bil- lion or so nerve cells links every pinpoint on and inside the body with the brain. Their ax- ons can relay 1.000 electriei! impulses per second These nals to and from the brain ca.i travel 350 feet per second Tne brain is central headquarters of the body's fabulous built-m communication system It receives a streaming mul- titude of signals from the sen- sory nerves sorts, evaluates and judges them. Some items are sent for storage m memory banks, others to cre- ative centers Motor nerves pulse the brain's decisions for action to teams of muscles. In moments of danger, automatic actions are triggered faster than you can think. About 90 per cent, or almost 10 billion of the nerves involv- ed in the total communication system are crowded in the brain. This three pound miracle is housed under the skull bones and nourished by its own olood supply, which delivers 20 per cent of the total oxygen con- sumed by the body The brain's wrinkled grev thinking cap is the cerebral cor- tex, a soft surface- layer eignth to one-sixth of an inch thick. Here the incoming sig- nals are' processed and many decision's are made. The v.Tinkled cortex is grooved with several deeper fissures. In dif- ferent regions there are brain centers that cope with sight, hearing and dozens of other separate functions. The main fissure partition-, the brain in a left and a right hemisphere. Communciations with trie left side of the body are linked with the right hem- isphere The left Hemisphere has tre ,centies tlwt cnpe with hand. arm. leg and other _ work- ing pans on the right side of 1 the The centers. iG nidi1 of speech. hoav-- Dear Dr. Lanib My hus-1 stones or damage the kid- band's doctor tells him that lie i neys.

South West North East 1 NT Pass 2 Pass 2 Pass 4 y Pass Pass Pass Opening lead: Ace ot A By forcing declarer to overruff with a high trump, the defenders will often suc- ceed in promoting an extra winner for themselves in the trump suit The best way to counteract this attack is to find an alternate play to overruffing After South opened the bidding with one no trump. North used the two club re- sponse to check on his part- ner's major suits. When this revealed a 5-4 fit in the heart suit. North had suffi- cient values to contract for game. West developed a promis- ing attack when he selected the ace of spades as his opening salvo. East encour- aged with the ten, and West continued the suit to his partner's king A third spade was played, and West ruffed with the nine Declarer's f i r t lubtnu-t was to overruff However, sober reflection showed that this play was unlikely to gam There was no way to avoid losing a club trick on the hand, so to make his game declarer had to bring in the trump suit without loss Therefore, East would have to hold the king of hearts, which could be picked up with a finesse A caieful study of the I rump spots showed that, un- less the suit originally divid- ed 2-2, declarer would have to lose a heart trick if he overruffed East would cover the queen of hearts when led and. though declarer coulo lake the ace and cash the ten, the eight would be pro- moted to a winner Nor would it help to lead a low heart from dummy, for the seven would force the ten and the king-eight would have to score a trick Declarer's reply was sim- ple but effective Instead of overruffing, he discarded dummy's low trick he would have had to lose in any event. The defenders had no counter. Declarer could get to dummy to take the trump finesse, and after drawing all three of East's trumps he could ruff his club loser at his leisure.
