H HUNTER Loan me four said Sally "I'll pay you back tomorrow Steve checked his cash I don't have that he told her But here's somethrng funny If I had four dollars more and four cents less I'd have just three times what I ve got How much did he have9 Thanks for an idea to Ann Bates Toledo, Ohio (Answer tomorrow) Friday s answer The number was 379 Ask Andy by Charles schulz LIKE A MIRACLE Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Diane Campanelh, age 12, of Staten Island New York, for her question What process changes a cater- pillar into a butterfly? When you don't know what goes on. the change from caterpillar to butterfly-seems like a miracle In the past few decades biologists have learned quite a lot about this remarkable happening But what they tell us does nothing to shake our faith in miracles Far from it When we know something about this amazing pioccss we tend to regard u as even more of a miracle It is hard to believe that a grubby green caterpillar and a gorgeous swallowtail butterf- lv are one and the same in- sect But this is true It is hard to believe that a stodgy stiff chrysalis is busier than a beehive when it seems to be fast asleep This also is true Inside that peaceful looking pupa the miracle ot metamorphosis completely remodels the caterpillar to build a butterfly During its lifetime the in- sect inhabits two entirelv ditferent bodies Each body is built and governed bv a ditferent set of biological blueprints The dramatic changing process that occurs inside the pupa is triggered bv endocrmal secretions from glands in or near the head the caterpillar com- pletes its destiny, the blueprint that governed its bodv becomes inactive The second blueprint takes over and issues a very different set of instructions The previous Iv famished caterpillar loses its appetite its body becomes shorter and fatter It spins silken ropes to suspend its shoulders trom a twig and a tacky wad to attach its tail In a few nouis its soil skin becomes a crisp waterproof shell What we see is a chrysalis pupa hanging horn a twig and apparently in a deep sleep However great changes are happening The process is governed bv endocrmal secretions and organized aiound tmv units called histo- blasts Fust the caterpillar s bodv is disassembled com- pletelv and for a time the pupa shell is filled with a soupy mishmabh ot biochemicals The mixture contains the iich nutrients that the feasting caterpillar stored in its cells The busy biological blueprint organizes the building ot entirely new cells from these materials The new cells are organized around the histoblast centers to build organs and muscles lor an entirelv different body During the remodeling process the wormy old body is discarded for one that has a distinct head thorax and ab- domen The stubby caterpillar feet are traded for six long legs The old chewing mouth parts are traded for sucking mouth parts Four large wings are added to the shoulders and the remodeled insect now is a butterfly The adult butterfly may spend the winter inside her protective pupa When spring returns her glands are stimulated perhaps bv warmth or extra hours of davlight Endocrmal secretions set in motion the final phase of metamorphosis The pupa shell cracks apart and the butterfly struggles forth to complete the last phase of her life first, her wings are small and shriveled As blood flows into them they expand and become stiff Now the adult insect is ready to fly off mate and lav eggs for the next generation of small miracles SAV.HOUlWOULP W LIKE TO HAVE You COULD 5TAtf AT TOUN'FOf?

GOREN 1973, The Chicago Tribune BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS Q. l Neither vulnerable, you are third hand after two passes, and hold AAK104 OS 6 3 What action do you take9 A spade, trying for a part score You intend passing any re sponse by partner It is not neces- sarv to open with a convenient club in third position, since you need not prepare for a rebid with a minimum hand Q. vulnerable, as South you hold AQ82 0K98542 The bidding has, proceeded North East South West 1 V Pass 2 0 Pass 2 V Pass 3 Pass 3 Q? Pass What do you bid now7 A hand is obviously a misfit, so you should discount some of the point count values Make an exception to the gen eral rule that an opening bid opposite an opening bid should produce game, and pass You might miss a game, but on most holdings that North is likely to have game will be hopeless or the play for it negligible Q. South, vulnerable, you hold: OK10986 The bidding has proceeded- South West North East Pass 1 A Dble. 2 A 9 What action do you take9 hand has enormous of- fensive possibilities With the addition of distributional values, it is worth 16 treat your hand as responder's with a fit for partner, and add 5 points for your void There should be no doubt in vour mind about reach ing game and slam is not out of the question The best way to announce this is by a cue bid of the opponents' suit The recom- mended call, therefore, is three spades, asking partner to select the suit and announcing that you are prepared for any suit he chooses Q. vulnerable with 60 part scores As South, you hold 4KJ865 JM093 The bidding has proceeded East South 1 0 What do you bid' Since you may anticipate a battle for the part score, you should endeavor to mention both suits if it is possible to do so Therefore, an overcail of one spade is preferred to a takeout double Something is bound to happen around the table on the first round, and you should get a chance to show the heart suit at a reasonably low level Q. S Neither vulnerable, as South you hold V AQ 7 4 3 0 A10 8 5 KJ 9 4 The bidding has proceeded North East South 3 A Pass What do you bid' A rn this day and age, a three btd does not denote strength Do rot even consider three no trump, for partner has nothing but a long spade suit that could be worthless to you Any action you may take will surely prod partner to four spades, where he would be exposed to a double On the other hand, If you keep quiet, the opponents may think vou are trying to steal the hand from them, and they mav enter the bidding Nothing would delight you more Q. vulnerable, as South you hold: A6 OAKQ64 The bidding has proceeded South West North East 1 0 Pass i V Pass 9 What do you bid now' Our preference is for two clubs, tho we would not fault anyone who chooses three clubs This is a powerful hand, and if our suits were spades and hearts we would surely make a jump shift However, since it appears that we may have to pla> in a minor suit, where 11 tricks are needed for game, partner has to have enough for another bid if we are going anywhere Thus, we prefer to take it slowly Q. South, vulnerable, you hold: AK9 The bidding has proceeded East South West North 10 1C Dble. 3 A Pass 4 A 50 Pass Pass What do you bid now' A is true that partner's bid of three spades denotes a hand that is not robust in high cards, but merely contains a long suit of good texture Nevertheless, it is also obvious from the bidding that partner is very short in both red suits, which makes your club holding doubly attractive Surely, the penalty inflicted on the op- ponents cannot be very great Bid five spades and, with a little bit of luck, you might make It Q. South, vulnerable, you hold AQJ 7 6 3 9? A OQ10 7 6 8 5 The bidding has proceeded North East South West 1 0 Pass 1 A Pass 2 NT Pass What do you bid now? A hand has all the ear marks of a slam You have virtu ally the equivalent of an opening bid and partner has opened and jumped The proper call Is a tern porizmg bid of three diamonds, awaiting partner's next move Common sense tells us this bid is forcing If you were interested in bigger things, you would merelv proceed to three no trump, while, if you had a bad hand, you would pass two no trump THAT'S TME V. .TAB ARE TROUBLE AROUND MORE THAN TME MEN HAGAR THE HORRIBLE by dik browne TRIP ALWAYS FASTER TUAN TRIP V ARCHIE by bob montana DO YOU KNOW WHY JUGHEAD WAS ABSENT YESTERDAY HIS N CLOCK.
