Chest Depression Surgery Exists My husband and my 3-year old son have the same con d i t i o n : a depression in their chest. Nothing was done about my husband's condition. I, wonder whether anything can be done for my son in the light of modern medical advances, Mrs. D. P.,Mich. Dear Mrs. P.: The condition you describe is technically known = as "pectus (chest) excavatum (funnel)." This is a. birth defect which is usually n o t hereditary. It would appear to he more of a coincidence that both : your husband and your child have this .condition. ; In only very rare instances does this depression of the sternum or breasL bone, affect t h e lungs or the heart by pressing, on them. If this does occur, surgery can rectify the condition so that the growth and health of the -child .are not imparied. ,. . · ;· . : EMBARRASSED' Children, both boys an'd girls, are understandably embarrassed, by this deformity. Therefore, surgery is more often performed for cosmetic reasons than for health reasons. In recent years, a simple operation has been successfuly performed. Instead.of opening .he - chest, wall., implants of si'Iicone are placed .underneath .he skin to fill the excavatum. Dr. David G. Bowers, a plastic surgeon in the U. S. Air Force Medical Center at the Lackland Air Force Base in Texas, has reported excellent results, in a large series of cases using the silicone implant, . Silteone. and other plastic materials, are under careful scrutiny for possible irritating side effects, If these side effects are not significant, surgeons everywhere. Avill probably be using this simple operation to relieve the cosmetic deformity of tlie funnel chest. Soon after Governor George Wallace was shot, the surgeons who operated on him said thai even if he were paralyzed he would be able to stand. \VHAT KIND? · I am paralyzed. I wonder what kind of support they were considering. Mr. R. V.,Tex Dear Mr: V.: The sadness of a functioning productive human being sud denly converted itito 'a paralytic state is overwhelming.' Some neurological diseases act with the swiftness .of : a , bullet. ] cannot help commenting on the courage of the , thousands! o! paralyzed people in. wheelchairs who try to reconstruct their lives in the light ; of such massive handicap, ' Many ingenious, and often remarkable, prosthetic devices can support a paralyzed person in a standing position. V e r y r e c e n t l y , a brilliant and imaginatively c o n s t r u c t e d wheelchair was devised at the Rhode Island School of Design by Peter Bressler. The chair can actually be made to. stand up so that ,the p e r s o n in it, even though p a r a l y z e d , can accomplish many normal functions in. the home that ordinarily would be impossible. The .chair, manufactured by the Overly Co. of Greensburg, Pa., is being tried at various veterans' hospitals in America. By Eugene Sbeff ACROSS 1. Cheat 4. Droop 7. Dross 11. Above 13. Frost 14.

The player who plunges gaily ahead, looking neither to right nor left; is sure to have his comeuppance once in a while. Bridge requires a leisurely approach, and often the super- careful player will collect very handsome dividends by adopting a slow and deliberate tempo. Consider this deal where West led his singleton heart against six diamonds. Declarer did not take long to misplay the hand. He won the heart with tlie ace, dre\y two rounds of trumps, cashed the K-Q of hearts in the hope of finding the suit divided 3-3, and ruffed dummy's last heart before leading a club to dummy's king and East's ace. · East ; returned : a 'spade : ahd declarer had to lose another club to go down one. The fault in South's method of play was that he failed to allow for the possibility that East might have the ace of clubs. Everything he did was right except that he should also have cashed the A-K of spades before leading a club to the king.- , - . . , True, the king would still have lost to the ace, but East would then have found it impossible .to' stop the slam. He would' have' been obliged to return a spade or a heart, and in either case South would shed his other club loser as he ruffed the return in dummy. It .coold not harm South to play the hand in this fashion, for it would have guaranteed the contract beyond the shadow of a doubt if West's three club bid . was based, as seemed likely, on a seven-card suit. The location of the ace of clubs, in such case, would not make a particle of difference.
