A largo-sized dog, of n breed known lo bo easily trained for protection^ was tied lo n polo, and straining at Its lensh. I made a menial nolo to write a column one day about this constant hazard in our streets. Just as I was thinking this, In a sudden flash, n child's (inn was caught in the trap-like vise of Hits frightened dog. By some sheoi' miracle he released the grip before he could seriously injure . and perhaps permau ently maim this small child. It-might have taken two seconds before this- curious little boy. left his mother's hands and rushed to pel the dog. It is almost impossible lo protcci against such a flash experience Yet there are two factors thai deserve Intensive precaution ary measures' if the thousands of animal bites each year are to be reduced. The first is that no dog should be tied on a publii thoroughfare while its owner i even momentarily away from him. The leashed dog 'has right to feel abandoned, fright ened, and without his nprma ability to flee from possible dan ger. He feels trapped, and mus defend himself against any ges ture by a child or adult that h inlerprels as a possible threat APPROACH The second factor to be col sidered Is that everyone, espec ally children, must be tnugl the proper way to approach a animal. It is almost beyond bi late goals are reasonable ones, lief that nearly 1.000,000 peop' in America are bilten each yea by animals, mostly dogs, an many of them household pel It Is estimated that three-qua ters of these bites occur children. An untold number animal biles have caused pe manent disability, loss of sigh and facial disfigurement. Children must be taught tl fundamental rules of safety wi animals with the same structu AGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 to 3ec. 21) The lessons o f . experience hould govern this day's moves, well planned program- will un much more smoothly than . spur-of-the moment set-up. IAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 0) . Your actions must be pre- icated on organized thinking ow. Efforts properly directed an be the forerunner of much irogress. Do not overtax yourself, however. AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) Present aspects suggest keen observance of conditions a n d situations before launching lew projects. Make certain .hat you know what you are about. PISCES (Feb. 20 lo Mar. 20) Let some matters "slide" while you reorganize thoughts, plans, methods of approach. A day of mixed lanelary influences which calls for acumen, tolerance. YOU BORN TODAY are endowed with many fine traits which can lead to a most successful life -- notably, · a magnetic personality, outstanding integrity, sound-, sense and the ability to put good Ideas over the top. You can add the touch that makes the ordinary undertaking sparkle, start unique enterprises with a vim that enthuses all about you. You have extraordinary^ sales ability and. with a flair for the dramatic, could succeed as a entertainer, writer, or,- in the legal field, as a trial lawyer.

STRONG ENOUGH ) Large dogs should he led only y people who are strong enough o control them. ) Teach your child to say 'hello" to a dog by extending is h a n d and letting the clog come to him. When the dog moves to the child and sniffs his extended hand he is more recep- ,ive to being petted. At the same ,ime the child should talk gent- y lo Iho dog and not make any sudden quick motions. · 8) Older children riding bicycles are oten chased by friendly dogs. The combination of a dog, a bicycle,' and an automobila can be dangerous. It is surprising lhat in many instances Ihc dog Is less at fault than is the person who improperly approaches him. Until children can thoroughly understand the rules of safety, petting a strange dog is an unnecessary hazard. DR. COLEMAN welcomes letters from readers, and, while he cannot undertake to answer each one. he will use questions in his column whenever possible and when they are of general interest.

One can't afford to be lazy on defense. You can't play me chanically and expect good re suits. Usually, there's much t( think about, and if a defendei shrinks from this task, disasle: may easily calch up with him Here is a sample of good de fense. West led the king of club and declarer ducked in dummy East signaling with the nine South's purpose in ducking wa reduce the;.'possibility of last's taking, the lead for a leart return. . ... West led another club, dum- ny taking the ace. Declarer hen led a low spade to the ace m which West played the king! ·As a result. South found him- elf kaput.. East was bound to ake the lead sooner or later vith a trump and would then re- urn a heart to put the contract out of. reach. Had West neglected to throw :he king on the ace South would lave made" the contract quite easily. He woul d have led a ,rump right back and later discarded one of dummy's! hearts on his fifth diamond. All told, declarer would have lost a spade, a heart and a club. West's unusual play was well reasoned. He knew from the bidding that South had the king of hearts, and he knew from the play lhat South could not have the A-J of spades, for he would surely have finessed in such case. West therefore credited East with the jack and, since South's bidding had indicated only four spades, he knew that dropping the king would not jeopardize his side's trump trick. Defensively, West could count on a club and a trump, and he had lo hope for two heart tricks. All he did was shape his play accordingly.
