Chest pains have been very rare, just occasional stabs at times that go away as they come. Shoulders and arm feel limp at times, as if I were punched with a boxing glove. 1 put a tablet under my tongue and that apparently helps out or is it my imagination? Dear Reader Who knows? This is one of our big problems in evaluating the effects of var- ious medicines, or even surgi- cal procedures. A doctor may be perfectly sure that the med- icine he is'giving his patient is doing a world of good when in fact it is the power of sug- gestion that is doing the trick. This is why research studies are often designed so that some patients get sugar pills and others get a drug that is being tested. Even the doctor doesn't know which medicine the phar- macy gives the patient. Then, that causes fleeting discomfort in tlie chest and arms. Short sharp slabs may not be angi- na however, but something else. Angina is relieved by nit- roglycerin tablets. one learns that certain events cause angina pain he can take a lab- let before the event and often prevent the attack. Thus, if you know you will get angina by walking two blocks uphill and must do so, it is a good idea to take the pill before starting the walk. Nitre-glycerin tablets do "wear out" with age and you should be sure that you always have fresh ones available. Another point for the niarij' people who take nitroglycerin tablets under the tongue if you have not had any need for tablets for several months and then start having chest pain, it is belter not to take the tablet. Call your doctor instead. The onset of chest pain when you when the patient's response is j have been free of it for months evaluated and matched with which medicide he was actual- ly getting, you can tell if it is all just in Ihc mind or truly the effect of the medicine. Don't discount the value of the benefit though that comes from the mind en- from faith. Even (he right medicine doesn't do as much for the patient who has no lailh in it and is deter- mined not to get well. What are describing is "angina" the type of heart pain :an mean the start of a heart attack. Nilroglyceriii tabl e t s should nol be taken if there is choice of staying out of matters that don't really concern you. PISCES (FtlJ. 19-Milrch Older people stand fast and you close ranks for sounder pro- p-ess. Action ralhcr than talk should he your motto now.

Now is the time to come lo Lhe aid of all our nalive birds. And getting to know them is a good place lo begin. For exam- ple, you may have seen a troupe of crossbills and mista- ken them for cheerful little spaiTows. By nature they are gentle and rather shy and they flit from perch lo perch loo fast for close inspection. Most likely you did not gel a chance to notice that [hey are called crossbills because have crossed bills. they The crossbill belongs to the finch family Fringillidae, along wilh 125 species of canaries and song sparrows, grosbeaks and buntings plus, of course, the colorful assortment of p r e 11 y little finches. All these charm- ing perching birds have strong stubby bills, just right for eat- ing tough small seeds. The crossbill goes one better. The two halves of his sturdy bill are slightly curved but the up- per beak tips down and the low- beak tips up. When his mouth is closed the two tips cross over. This unusual bill is a splen- did pincers and scissors type tool just right to cope the crossbill's favorite food. He spends most of his time in tall, dense conifer forests of pine, larch and spruce. Here the seeds come packaged in tough woody cones but the cross- bill can open them up and peck out ihe goodies with no (rouble at all. His menu also includes a few bugs and small berries. Two crossbill species make their homes in North America. The females of bolli species wear olive lones of green and yellow that blend with the thick conifer foliage where they build their nests. The male red cross- bill wears rusty red plumage, tinged with browns on his tail and wings. The male while- winged crossbill wears the same rusty reds and dusky browns, plus flaahy of white on his wings and chest. He also has a white bar at the any possibility Ihe pain is a [op of m _ heart attack or myocardial in- farction. Under these condi- tions, Ihe nitroglycerin tablet can cause shock and even and a black pair of pirate mous- laches sketched under his eyes. Crossbills enjoy the company of their friends and relatives from place lo place and cross- bills are born travelers But un- like most traveling birds they ignore Lhe seasons. Summer and v inter, spring and fall find them flying norlh or soulh, cast or west. A flock of red or white- winged crossbills rr.ay arrive in Rhcde Island at any time of the year. Afler a sliarL slay, they may decide take off in easy stages for Alaska, Idaho or the Carolinas. However, Ihese jet set birds take lime out lo give Ihe very best care to their growing chil- dren. As a rule, their nests are in the Icfly branches of tall con- ifers. They are neat, sturdy lit- tle baskets woven from twigs, grasses and rootlets and softly Lined wilh bils of hair. The four to six blue eggs have a rash of brown freckles at one end. Mrs. Crossbill sits pallenUy on the precious eggs, blending invis- iblj with the sunny and shady speckles of the thick foliage. Mr. Crossbill brings food and serves her Lhe waiting meals all period. through death.

The family history of the fishes dales back millions of years to limes when the ancient seas were less sally than they are today. The early fishes were adapted lo this fresh -r fairly fresh water. But through Lhe ages, their sea water grad- ually grew saltier as rivers dis- solved chemicals from the land and dumped them into the oceans. Meantime the bodies of fishes changed to keep pace wilh Lhe They developed tough scales to protect thci- skins from Lhe salty chemicals around them. The chemical composition of their body fluids changed very little and they did net drink the salty water. Since fish dine on other fish, their meals were unsalted. This is why fish food is fresh meal and we need a helping of salt when we eat fishes frcm the salty sea. Questions asued children of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.

GOREN [13 mi: IT TtH CMuii Tflbnt) Both vulnerable. South deals.

He was afflicted by some raider devilish distribution contrived by mother nature plus the only opening lead that could present him wilh any prob- lem in his six spade contract. And yet, in the final analysis, it was his frustration at not having bid a grand slam that caused him not to Lake the necessary precaution to pre- serve Lhe safety of his contract. When South opened the bidding with one spade, North decided to bid a slum. He flashed the signal by making a jump shift to three dia- monds. When hu partner rebld throe hearts, North leaped directly to six spades, lie hoped that If South's trump suit was headed by the ling-queen and that If the latter also held the act of clubi, he would be Induced to carry on lo seven. South did actually hold Die desired cards and a grand slam would have been a reasonable undertaking, however, we are not inclined to censure South for passing. As it was, with the jack of hearts opening lead, a grand slam cannot be made. South was rather disgusted wilh himself when the dum- my was spread and after mumbling an apology to his partner for not having car- ried on lo seven spades, he proceeded to ruff the first trick with North's deuce of spades. This proved to be a fatal move. The ace of spades was led at trick Iwo and when East showed out, revealing lha four-zero trump break, de- clarer no longer had a side enlry to dummy's diamond suit. He started to run the diamonds, discarding two clubs on Lhe ace and king. West ruffed the second round and returned the ten of hearts. With a gesture of resignation, South discarded a diamond from dummy and East won the Lrick with the ace of hearts. A diamond was relumed and South trumped with the oueen of spades lo prevent an ovcrrulf. A spade was led to Ihe ten and North's jack of spades drew West's last trump. The king and queen of diamonds dropped the jack and the dummy was high. If declarer discards dia- mond from dummy at trick one, his contract is assured. East wins with Ihe ace of hearts, but there is no way to force the dummy in trumps and Soulh has there- by prolected himself against the spada break. If East returns a club, declarer plays the ace, erossci over to the Jack of spades, Retting the bad news and then ruffs a email diamond In his hand. Trumps are drawn ending u.i in the North hand and the diamonds arc nm for Lho bilanct of the Lrlcki. Smoking in public banned for B.C. government employees VICTORIA (CP) British Columbia's provincial government employees have been instructed not to smoke in public while at work. The new rule was issued by Lhe civil service commission because of complaints of civil servants blowing smoke in peo- ple's [aces. The edict, now officially part of Ihe government's manual of personnel administration, says: "In the Interests of courtesy to the public, emrvyees are re- Smokers told not to smtch LONDON (CP) If you're thinking of switching to cigars or a pipe to avoid the dangers of cigarette smoking, forget it, says a British consumer magazine. The publication W h i c h? says most cigarette smokers who change to cigars and pipes continue to inhale. Bui a small cigar, for example, con- tains 2.6 milligrams of nico- tine compared with l.B milli- grams in an average ciga- rette. "So. if you go on inhaling aflcr you switch, there is no reason to suppose that you will be any bctlcr off than sticking lo cigarettes. The widely-read magazine, published by the Consumers' Association, adds that one smoker in four dies prcma- lurely because of his habit. "If you arc 35 and smoke 2ri-plus a day, you have as much risk of dying before you arc II as a .Second World War .serviceman had of being in quested to refrain from smok- ing in areas where the public is sei-ved." Commission chairman Art Richardson denied that the rule was an extension of the govern- ment's ban on cigarette adver- tising. "Hie rule is there because we hod seven or eight complaints from people who said govern- ment employees blew smoke in their faces." he said. Some department heads are apparently interpreling Lhe rule lo mean llial government work- ers cannot smoke in public view. A highways department em- ployee said his supervisors have decided that crews clear- ing roadsides cannot smoke on the job because motorists would see them.
