Latnb, M.D. "DEAR DR. LAMB - Would vou explain the difference f, e t we en rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and Snut? What can one do to help nr relieve these? 1 have swelling of my finger joints and I don't know which one this is. MY doctor says there is no known cure, just to keep ac- live DEAR READER - In general rheumatoid arthritis is an 'inflammatory disease, w jth red, swollen, tender joints. It can be mild or severe. By contrast, osteoarthritis is a wear and tear process or degeneration of the joints, usually with overuse or increasing age. In your case you might be able to tell the difference by which joints of your fingers are involved. In osteo- arthritis the end joints of the fingers are involved. But, in rheumatoid arthritis the knuckle joint and the second joint are usually involved, causing the fingers to have a spike-like appearance. Gout usually involves single joints to start with, and is caused by the gradual deposit of a sally-like material from uric acid. I think if you were having acute attacks of gout you would know it and your doctor would be treating it. There are a lot of things that can be done for arthritis. When the involvement is minimal, as sometimes occurs with osteoarthritis, the sensible approach is to maintain motion and relieve pain. But, for more serious problems, even reconstruction of damaged joints is possible. For more information you will want to get a copy of the book "There's Help for Arthritis," that I cowrote with LaRue Stone, an arthritis sufferer of many years. Send one dollar plus 25 cents postage and handling to "Arthritis, in care of this newspaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019. DEAR DR. LAMB - I am 22 and my husband is 29. This is his second marriage, my first. He has three children, of which we have custody. I would give anything to have a'Chlld-of my own, but my husband had a vasectomy during his first marriage. I have heard of artificial insemination but don't really know anything about it. Would you please send me all the information you can about the subject, the process, the danger involved, it any, etc.? DEAR READER - You might have a lot of trouble getting that done. The procedure is simply one ol mechanically injecting semen into the birth canal where the sperm cells can then migrate up the uterus to the tube and fertilize the ovum (egg). The problem is related to obtaining the donor semen and doing the procedure when the woman is able to get pregnant. If often takes a long time and many trials. The best advice I can give you is to write to the obstetrical and gynecology department of the nearest university medical center and ask their advice. Most doctors are neither equipped nor wish to provide this type ot service. There is another possibility you may have overlooked. Some vaseclomies can be reversed. Vasectomies are usually considered permanent. However, it may be that the ends of the vas that were cut and tied in your husband could be cut again and sewed together. He is a young man and he might have at least one chance in four of being LOS ANGELES (AP) - Comedian George Burns is a "joy to be around," says a spokesman at Cedars of Lebanon Hospital, where Burns underwent open heart surgery last Friday. Surgeons replaced three arteries in and around his heart, said Jack Langdon, the entertainer's personal secretary. A hospital spokesman said Burns, 78, was in good condition Tuesday. "The hostesses say he's the um: tnduce in lour ui utnig most cheerful man they ever able to regain his capacity to saw," the spokesman said. He father children.

The bidding in the box is explained by him on the basis of South being sure- that 1 -Nor-tlr would need the ace and king of spades for his jump raise. Dick Frey adds a footnote to the effect that South could bid five not rump as the grand-slam force to ask North to go lo seven with the ace and king of trumps. There are any number ol really modern ways to get to seven and there arc also quite a few ways to misplay the hand. The correct line of play is very interesting. South wins the'club lead and plays his queen of spades. Then he leads out I he ace of hearts. He sees that a 5-0 heart break is going to give him a lot of trouble, and that even a 4-1 break might ruin him. His next play is a trump lo dummy's ace WeM shows out and South discards his king of hearts on dummy's kmg ol clubs. He ruffs a low heart, enters dummy with the king of trumps to draw the last adverse trump.
