But mos them make arrangements Mbernate until spring retun with food supplies and comfor ably warm weather. The lilt brown bat is a mousy creatur about three or Jour inches ion As a rule, he lives a sociab life with a group of friends and relatives. The big brown bat Is really not much bigger, but his color is a lighter cinnamon brown. He lends to live a more lonely life. Come fall, almost all our big and little brown bots are very busy, hunting extra food to gain a little surplus fat. They nlso are busy selecting suitable shel- ters where they can hibernate undisturbed. The little brown bats usually decide to sleep through the long winter where they dozed through the sum- mer days. This may be a dark secret cave or the dim ratters in the roof of a fanner's barn. During the summer, the big rown bat likes to change his ay time sleeping quarters, esterday maybe he settled for corner under the caves of a oof or behind a window shut- er. Next week he may select secret pocket in a tree trunk j perhaps a quiet cranny in ome rocks. Come fall, he hunts around until be finds a similar ilace to shelter him through lis winter hibernation.

BLONDIE-By Chic Young Bats, of course, are warm- blooded mammals, and though hey regulate their body tem- jerature better than most, none if them can abide the cold. This is anohter reason why the insect eating species must ar- range lo avoid the worst of Hie winter. Most, but not all, of the common bats, that live near our houses and back yards hib- ernate fairly close to home base, But the common red bat and others who live in trees and shrubbery are likely to mi- grate to warmer winter quar- ters. They flock South in the fall and back home again in Ihe spring, flying mostly at night and on gloomy days. Questluns asieo ty cnnmen of Herald should he mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.

(Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1072) HE'S THE O PERSON IWTHEWORL-P MO EAT ANO SLEEP AT THE SAME ME OW YOUR WAY BACK UPSTAIRS, DEAfJ, WILLYOU BRING ME BEETLE BAIlEY-By Mart Wnlkir overall showing indicated that the Poles are a force lo be reckoned with in future competition. In today's hand, taken from their match against Ihe Republic of China, Poland picked up a substantial swing. The bidding is pre- sented at the table where the players from Formosa held the North-South cards. North's bid of two spades is Ihe so-called "weak two which designates a holding of less than regula- tion opening bid strength in- cluding a six card suit. South chose to gamble out a game bid in hearts in the hope ol hiltiiiG his partner wilh some side strength in clubs. K may be observed Inal against anything but a club lead, declarer is assured of 10 spade, six hearts, and three clubs. The Poles, however, subjected South In a deadly defensive exhibition. West opened Ihe six of clubs, Ihe three was played from dummy and East rulfcd with Ihe deure of hearts. The latter now dar- ingly underled Ihe ace-king of diamonds and 'his partner won the trick with the ten to return another club. Dum- my's jack was trumped with the four of hearts to com- plete the defensive book and South ruffed the diamond continuation in bis hand- Declarer was left with the K-lfl-7 of clubs opposite the blank ace, and it he drew trumps, he would have a losing club at the end, inas- much as West retained the Q-9-B. The only remote chance to succeed hinged on East's being out of trumps. If that were the case, then il would be possible to cash the ace of clubs, reenter the closed hand wilh another ruff, play the king of clubs and Ihen Irump Ihe ten wilh North's three of hearts. When a club was led lo the ace, Easl ruffed again and exited with his last heart. Soulh was left wilh a club loser and ended up go- ing set two tricks lor a 200 point deficit on the deal. At the other table, Poland reached a contract of clubs on the Norlh-Soulh cards. Altho it appears that this bid must fall one Irick short since declarer is off two club Iricks and one dia- mond, Ihe Chinese player sealed West chose to open a trump in an attempt lo pre- vent, heart ruffs in dummy and the first Irick was won in the closed hand as East showed out. Si n c e declarer's hearts were solid, it became rou- tine to lead a second club ind finesse North's jack. The ace of clubs was cashed and Ihe closed hand reen- lered wilh the jack of hearls to play the king of liumps. West was left with the queen as South proceeded lo run his hearts. West ruffed the ihird round, but declarer's only olher loser was a dia- mond inasmuch as he re- tained his last trump lo cash out the heart suit. The score for the vulnera- ble game was EOO points which added to the set scored al the other lahle net- ted Poland a total swiog ot 800 poinU on the deal. LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Can carrots really help you-r eyes? a. FUZZ TOOK IT 70 OFFICE. US 6AIP IT WOULD MAX6 A SfZEAT HATR4.CK WHERE'S THAT CAST OF MV FEETX WAPElM ARTSANP CRAFTS? TtteV SEEM TO Are SOUS PEAL. TtJOSE MEvV RECRUITS 111 ABNER-By A! Capp Dear Dr. Lamb Please satisfy my curiosity and pos- sibly someone else's. Is there any truth to what I hear about carrots improving one's eye- sight? Dear Reader Yes, there is. I suspect this is true, though, only in people who have a vit- amin A deficiency. Carrots are very rich in vitamin A. This vitamin is important In the chemical formation of a sub- slancc in the back of the eye, called visual purple. It parti- ailarly helps a person to see better at night. Individuals who have a true vitamin A deficiency often have what we call "night blindness" which means that they can't sec very well when the lighting is poor or at night. If a person is eating a good balanced diet, (wliich should include some car- rots part of the lime) "they'll probably be getting vitamin A in vegetables and even in orange juice. Most commercial milk is fortified with vitamin A. It's not very likely for peo- ple to have a vitamin A de- ficiency today if they're drink- ing their milk and eating a balanced diet. This was per- haps more common in years past when fresh vegetables were not EO available and com- mercial milk was not fortified with vitamin A. In any case a carrot a day isn't going to hurt anybody and il may help a few people. It is true, however, that vit- amin A is one of the few vit- amins that can cause poisoning in very high doses, so don't go overboard wilh vitamin A tab- lets. Dear Dr. Lamb My sister's doctor had her blood tested and said her blood could not take any more iron. She lakes B-12 shots. What does the doctor mean when he says her blood will not take any more Iron? Is j this a serious disease? Dear Header I presume the doctor meant that the blood contained as much as Is nor- mal for it to contain. The major portion of iron in the blood Is in Ihe red blood cells combined with a blood protein to form hemoglobin. This is the sub- stance in the red blood cells that enable them to transport oxygen to the body cells and carry away carlxm dioxide. When the red blood cells are of normal size and contain the normal amount of hemoglobin tlierefore iron, taking any more iron will not increase the amount of iron In the blood stream. In other words, each red blood cell has a maximum capacity of how much iron i will hold or needs. When it' full, Ihe rest of the Iron i wasted. What the doctor is ex- plaining to you, I suspect, is lhat if she has anemia it's not because she needs iron.

THE SANS HI AND LOIS-By Dik probably giving her B-12 shots because she has a deficiency in this vilamin or is not using the natural sources of this vitamin in her properly. This can lead to a different kind of ane- mia, classically, pernicious ane- mia. The treatment for this form of anemia is not iron, but B-12 shots. A B-12 deficiency thai might cause pernicious anemia isn't serious as long as the proper Irealment is taken regularly as prescribed by Ihe doctor.
