Is a s m a 11 horneylike growth on the edge of the outer ear sometimes a symptom of gout? Is severe pain in the mid- dle toes ever a first indica- tion? I know it can be heredi- tary. Is tension from emotional stress ever a contributing fac- tor? Should a patient's diet be restricted? Is exercise benefi- cial? Is gout a symptom of a rundown condition or does the rundown condition follow gout? Is Benemid the usual medica- tion? Is it usually successful? Dear Reader The hornylike growth at the edge of the ear is a deposit of uric salt. Goul is associated with an increased amount of uric acid in the bloodstream. The uric acid is a leftover product from the metabolism of certain types o proteins and it can also be formed by the body. In mos instances an excessive forma tion in the body is the real cul prit. The uric acid material i normally excreted in the urine but ii there's too much of it, i will accumulate and form chemical salt which is deposit ed in various regions of th body. These deposits can caus bones to degenerate and can cause gouty arthritis. Small di posits of them in the edge i the ear are sometimes seen.

Jlany different joints can be involved in gout, including the middle toe. Classically, it is the big toe that becomes red, ho d swollen, but other joints or es can also be affected.

Theories come to conflict I with practical reality, possibly j show some flaws. Make sensi- ble adjustments on the spot. PISCES (Feb. 10-March Expect difficult, slo-.v progress and failure ot understanding. ndcncy for gout. Women of have high blood levels c ric acid without having th outy attacks or gouty arthr tis, and the men often have the ctual arthritis or red, hot ainful tos. There are several tings which can precipitate in attack. This includes overin- ulgence in rich foods and al- ohol. Emotional stress can be contributing factor. If the person is overweight, e needs to lose weight, but autiously, under a physician's upervision, I have seen pa- tents on crash diets who have ctivated an attack of gout for :ie first time. If there's no need or a weight reduction, the most mportant point is to maintain normal, sensible diet. Some [odors like to eliminate cer- ain foods, particularly organ meats like heart, liver and ongue, but usually altering the diet alone isn't sufficient to con- rol gout or prevent attacks of ;outy arthritis. For tltis pur- most doctors today also ;ive medicine. Benenu'ci, which fou mentioned, is one of these, so is colchicine or combinations ot these drugs. Regular exercise is good un- less the person has had an acute attack of gouty arthritis and then it is out of the question. Excessive, unusual exertion can sometimes precipitate an attack of gout. Individuals who are taking medicine regularly for gout should continue as long as their doctors want them to take it. It helps to prevent the deposits of the uric acid salt in the joints, which lead to join in- struction and arthritic changes. Even if a person feels well, he shouldn't abandon his medicine. today relate to past decisions TUMBLEWEEDS-By Tom K.

South NORTH A A 10 5 W A73 OK8CS1 WEST EAST V95 O32 097 10985 AQ1645Z SOUTH AQJ7E4 9Q62 0 A Q J 10 The bidding: South West North I 3 A Pass I 4k Pass Pass Pass Opening lead: Ten of Precise timing was the es- eetitial ingredient to South'a success in his {our spade. contract. opening bid of one epade and North's jump raise to three spades were quite routine. Conditions of vulnerability deterred East from entering the auction at an advanced level and ivhen South routinely carried on to game, Uie bidding subsided. West "opened the ten of clubs and East captured dummy's king with the ace, When the' jack appeared from South, East was reluc- tant to continue the suit for fear of presenting his oppo- nent with a ruff and discard. He shifted to the nine of hearts, declarer played tho deuce and West signaled eH' couragingly with the eight. South paused to assess the situation before he played from dummy. If the spade finesse succeeded, there vreuld be no problem in tak- ing 11 spades, five diamonds, and one heart. If East turned up with the guarded king of spades, how- ever, the contract was in jeopardy, for a heart contin- uatbn thru the queen could net the defenders two tricks in that suit before South could obtain a discard. The only chance then was to find East with a doublclon heart. The nine of hearts was permitted to win tho trick. When the five was continued, South played tha queen. West covered with the king and North put up the ace. A diamond put South in to lead the queen of spades for a finesse. Altho this lost to East's king, tha latter was out of hearts and exited with a diamond. When both opponents fol- lowed, declarer was safely home. He drew trump with one more pull and then cashed his diamonds, over- taking the fourth round with North's king to lead a fifth diamond and dispose ot the six of hearts. South lost one trick each In spades, hearts and clubs. Observe that if 'dumm> wins the heart shift at trick two with the ace, East can play a second heart when he gets in wilh the king of spades and give his partner the opportunity to cash two tricks In .that suit and defeat the contract. The Big Dipper Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit -Stu- dents Encycolopedia to Brian Files, age 9, of Derby, Kan- sas, for his question: Will the Big Dipper ever change its shape? We depend on the Big Dipper to point to Polaris, the North Star, which, guides our direc- tions here on Earth. Several of its bright stars also point to key constellations and guide the eye around the sky. It would be very annoying if we could not count on the Big Dipper to keep up this good work. Never- theless, it is gradually changing its shape. It has been changing slowly since the earth began, and will keep on changing as long as the earth endures. Those seven bright stars in the Big Dipper really are not related to each other. There are vast oceans of space be- tween and all of them are very many light years away from us. What's more, each one is travelling its own way at its own speed. We see them ar- ranged as the Big Dipper shape only because that is how they appear to be grouped when seen from our small, faraway planet. Though the seven big stars are moving at high speeds in different directions, the picture does not change much in a life- time, or even in 100 lifetimes. This is because outer space is so enormous that the distances Up There tend to fool us.

Today in history By THE CANADIAN PRESS Sept. 6, 1972 The Pilgrim Fathers, 102 Puritans, sailed in the Way- flower from Plymouth, Eng- land, 352 years ago in seek freedom ot worship for their own faith in New England. The 74 men and 28 women were members of John Robin- son's church at Leyden. They landed at Plymouth Rock in December of that year and their settlement later formed part of Massa- chusetts. final exchange of prisoners in Korea took place, in which 30 Canadi- ans were freed by the Com- munists. jet aircraft pil- oted by John Deny crashed into a crowd at the Farnbor- ough air show in England, killing 28.

From the Earth, the changes Big Dipper appear very slow and very slight! But we would notice a big difference if we returned in the year 000 A.D. Then the old handle will be the bowl, the old bowl will be the handle ar.d the whole thing will be standing on its head. You can figure out how this remodelling is done when you know the directions in which the stars are moving. The easy way is to draw the Big Dipper, placing its seven major stars where we now see them. Get set to add a small errow to show which direction each star is going. Count the four stars in the handle and ig- nore the one at the tip. The first three are marching away from the bowl, one behind the other. The two stars at the bot- tom of the bowl are moving in more-or-less the same direction. The last star in the handle and the one on the far side of the bowl are moving in opposite directions from the other five. In years or so, the star at the end of the handle will swing around and reshape the handle into an upside-down bowl. The in the presenl bowl will swerve around to acK a new handle, Meantime another 'startling surprise is occurring in this part of the sky. Polaris is los- ing its place as the Pole Star During the next years, several other stars will take turns in this role. However, this has nothing to do with the real motions of the stars. It happens because the Earth wobbles like a top running down. Its North Pole swings slY.vly around, pointing to first one and then another Pole Star in the sky.
