These "pushers" can, in this way. supply their own demands and frequently they are responsible for starting the dependent feeling in their classmates. These sleeping pills can produce a sense of drowsiness which should alert teachers and parents to the fact that the child may be "on" something. The same peddlers of "goof balls" also peddle "pep pills," or amphetamines, which help to keep d r o w s y students awake. Before long, t h e s e youngsters taking barituratef are caught in a trap of sleepiness to escape reality, only to be followed by the pep pills to keep awake. USE AND ABUSE The use and abuse of these drugs is exceedingly dangerous because of Hie 'body harm and personality changes they can induce. It is an admitted fact that "goof ball" and "pep pill" users are on the lowest rung of a ladder that leads to marijuana and then frequently to hard narcotic addiction. Not until severe punishment is meted out to those immoral _ p l e who drink large quanti- ies of alcohol over an ex- ended period of time. It must be stated that cirrhosis is not imited to the alcoholic. Alcoholism is a disease that is no different from a chronic ung condition or diabetes. Cirrhosis is a degenerative process by which the liver cells are destroyed and replaced by functionless scar tissue. Since the liver plays a most important role in taking toxic substances out of the blood, permanent damage to it does insurmountable damage to the rest of the body organs There are, of course, Â» ,'Â· Â»"Â·-- e other causes of -irrhosis but undoubtedly alcohol is the major contributor. Obstruction of the outflow or Dile, chronic infcciions, hcpn- and some toxic metals may also cause cirrhosis. NO GUESS WORK There is no guesswork about this disease. People may think they have cirrhosis but not until a complete series of tests are (lone on the liver, a sn-callcd -liver profile." can the exact condition be determined. One of the most gratifying advances in medicine is that liver transplants and other operations are now available to people with advanced cirrhosis. Successful as these operations can be. it is to the prevention of this disorder that energies should be devoted. AFGHAN! A LEOPARD HUNTER.

It i* difficult .to guess how South made live clubs on this hand, for, even with the king of hearts well placed, you'd think he would surely lose a spade and two diamonds for down one. But he did make eleven, tricks, partly as the result of an unusual play he made, and partly because of a defensive error. West led a spade. East took the king and continued with the ace, which South ruffed. Declarer saw veiy l i t t l e chance of making the contract legitimately; in fact, he thought he might go down two if East had the king of hearts. So, In an effort to muddy tha waters and possibly gain a. trick, he drew two rounds of rumps, ending in dummy, and ed a low heart towards his ten. East followed low, thinking declarer had tha Wag 1 , and South'* ten forced the king. West should have returned a icart to sever declarer's com- munlcattons, in which case thÂ» contract would surely have gone down. But instead be led a loir diamond) Halt's king forcing tha aoe.

West could also have saved the day by returning the queen of diamonds instead of a low one. This play would likewise have killed the squeeze.
