D. Mystery Unveiled On Acupuncture I recall that you were not very enthusiastic about acu- punture when you wrote about It a year ago. Have you changed your mind since? Mr. T.E., Conn. Dear Mr. E,: I have been Impressed by the observations made by reliable doctors about this phenomenon. For 3,000 years acupuncture has been used by the Chinese. Modern medicine had completely disregarded the reports because the procedure did not conform to any scientifically e s t a b l i s h e d procedures or rationale, Now, a variety of explanations are coming to light that may give us greater understanding of the mystery of this extraordinary technique. Â·'. Neurologists are speculating that by twirling the fine gold needles in isolated parls of the body, the flow of pain impulses may be blocked. In this way, the sensation of pain during surgery is kept from going from the spinal cord to the brain. NERVE CIRCUITS Blocking these nerve circuits is an explanation that will need tremendous neurq-physlological sstudles, These studies are already underway in well-established research centers. Dr. William Kroger, of Los Angeles, an internationally famous authority on hypnosis, believes that the hypnotic effect plays a most important role in the control of pain in acupuncture. Doctors everywhere will await t h e scientific substantiation that may take acupuncture out of the realm of speculation and into the field of reality. Now I must warn my readers of a problem that is arising in the daily practice of medicine. Patients with conditions that have failed to respond to orthodox treatment are beseeching doctors to find for them "specialists" In acupuncture. Many of these "specialists" arÂ« cropping up all over and jumping on the bandwagon in order to be the first In thelf community to be identified with acupuncture. WORST DANGER Patients, with gout, bursltls, arthritis, anginal heart pain, asthma, Parkinson's disease, cancer, tuberculosis, sciatica, slipped disk, and tonsillitis have already found their way to untrained, unqualified acupuncture "specialists." The great danger, of course, is that many serious conditions may be overlooked or neglected by people who, with Impatience, seek this short cut, often with great disappointment. A middle-aged Chinese woman owns a tailor;shop in my neighborhood. Three months ago, she fell and hurt her wrist. Her hand was swollen and sha could barely move her fingers. She refused to have an X-ray and to h a v e any treatment other than acupuncture and .the application of special herbs. Now, it has been found that, indeed, Â« fracture did exist, with a tear of her tendons that now makes her hand unserviceable. It will take months of physiotherapy, after surgery, to restore function of this hand. The value of acupuncture may yet be proven. Until, we know more about it, It is a procedure that should be contemplated with great caution. DR. COLEMAN welcomes letters from readers, and, while he cannot undertake to answer each one, he will u'se questions in his column whenever possible and when they are of general interest.

Neither side vulnerable. NORTH A A K B 3 Â»10983 4 A K B 6 WEST EAST *J42 41076 V 9 5 Â¥ A K 4 4QJ1003 ^ 7 #KÂ«J5 *jri0987* SOUTH 4 Q 8 5 V Q J 7 2 Â· 543 *A63 The bidding: Stmta West NerHi East , INT 2 * Pacs 2 * p ass Pass Pass 3 + Opening lead-- five of spades. This deal arose in the U.S.- jermany clash in the IOCS Vorld Bridge Olympiad. It llustrales the difficulty sometimes encountered in standard bidding methods in finding a 4-4 heart fit when it exists. When Waldeck and Pressbur- ger were North-South for Germany, the bidding went as shown. It was difficult for North to bid his woefully w e a k hearts when he had two other suits headed by the A-K, and it was similarly awkward for South to bid two hearts over two diamonds and thus conceal support for his partner's first- named suit. So the German pair missed a good four heart contract without e v e r mentioning the suit, and suffered a slight further loss when East contested with three clubs, going dow one--5D points. At the other table, the American North-South pair, Robinson and Jordan, found their heart fit quite easily. They made use of the so-called negative double to arrive at four hearts on this sequence: South West North East Pass Pass 1* 24 DHs 34 44 Pass Jordan's double was not for penalties; on the contrary, it announced four-card length in spades or hearts, possibly both, and 7 to 10 high-card points. The negative double suited Hobinson to a T, since he had good support for either major. When West inervened with three clubs, Robinson bid four of them to .force South to select a major suit. Jordan thereupon bid four hearts, which he easily made. The negative double, whatever its long-term 'advantage or disadvantage, was certainly effective in this deal. PONYTAH.
