My husband and I were grateful to the doctors for their cindness and understanding of this calamity. We were told of its seriousness and every effort was made to keep the suspected diagnosis of cancer from our son. The next day we were horrified to find him in a state of panic because on his admission chart was stated "carcinoma of the lung" which he understood. How can such cruelty and carelessness exist in one of the great medical complexes in America? Mr. Mrs. D.S.E.. New York Dear Mr. Mrs. E.: Despite the most active programs designed to teach all hospital personnel something about psychological medicine, such gross errors do occasionally occur. Unfortunately the mas sive, terrifying impact on your son will be explained away (by somebody who should have known better) with the phrase, "I'm sorry." T h i s is not enough and I truly wish that such pitfalls could be removed so that the normal anxiety of a new patient would not be increased to unbearable proportions. - ELEVATOR ERROR How can we possibly accounl for the hundreds of people who are involved in all the facets of a hospital? I once was taking a small child to the operating room after having spent three i sessions preparing her for ton iljsillectomy. She seemed relaxed nd unafraid as we stepped in to the elevator. Imagine m\ distress when the elevator opcr ator said "What a beautiful gir you are and as soon as you fal asleep I'm going to take your big black eyes and give you mine."

POOR MEMORY My mother is 84 years old and for the past six years, simply cannot remember any- ,hing for more than a few minutes. We know that it is just as bad for us. Is there any way to control this? Mrs. N. R.. Kansas Dear Mrs. R.: The loss of memory for recent events happens frequently in the elderly, especially those who have a moderate narrowing of the arteries due to arteriosclerosis. The blood flow In the brain is thus diminished. The remarkable characteristic about these people is that they have an unbelievable recall for events that happened during their childhood but cannot remember hour to hour instructions. It takes a great deal of understanding and patience to live in such a situation. At present there arc very few reliable drugs that are of benefit. It is encouraging, however, to know that experimental drugs are well on their way to relieve this handicap in those privileged to live to a ripe old age.

I was plaj'ing with Sam Fry, Jr., in the Reisinger team of Jour championship some thirty years ago when this cxtraor. dinary hand occurred. The bidding was unusual, to put it mildly. Fry held the South cards and elected to open a diamond. Presumably his purpose was to learn, whether I had good diamond support, in which case he -would be in a better position later to judge ho\v high to go in spades, where H A N D West doubled and I jumped to four diamonds. This terrible overbid was ia part traceable to the favorable vulnerability, and in part to the exuberance and, impetuosity of youth. Fry now bid his real suit, spades, and West competed with five clubs. East then bid liva hearts, for reasons impossible to explain at this late date, and Fry rebid his spades. Undaunted, W e s t bid six clubs. When, this came around to Fry lie reverted to diamonds. He thought he might avoid a spade loser (Fry didn't know 1 had the queen) if diamonds were trumps. West doubled and Fry redoubled! West led the king of clubs. Fry ruffed and returned tha eight of diamonds. When. West followed low, dummy did likewise. Another diamond lead put West out of. commission. Ha could take his ace of diamonds, but no more. So Fry made six diamonds redoubled for a score of 1,330 points, despite West's 21-point hand. Of course, West could have beaten the slum had he led tha king- of hearts originally, but this lead probably never occurred to him. It did not seem to West that the "safe" lead of the king of clubs could possibly | give declarer the contract, but, i ns it turned out, he could not , he planned to play the hand. I have been more mistaken. (O 1969, King features Syndicate, Inc.) 4-14-61 PONYTAIL "There it ii u big u life... a six-hundred-dollir deduction for broke little ol'ire!"
