WASHINGTON (NBA) A number of knowledgeable government officials with whom this reporter has been in contact, see little chance of preventing creeping inflation from continuing in 1988.

A diamond finesse lost to West'* king and West shifted to Hie jack of ••steades. South struggled along, bL\ tie best he could do was to holdl his loss to three trlcKs. North was bitter about Souths opening bid. He wanted to know how anyone could pliy with a partner who opened s 10 point hand and continued to bid as If he bad a tound opening. South •wanted to know if North had never heard of a misfit and suggested that North should have quit at three clubs. It is a pretty good rule that When a partnership goes dmyii three tricks at a voluntary game bid that both partners contributed something 10 the debacle, and this hand is nO exception.

There sre many sources of error in laboratory tests anri when one or more tests are in- consittent with ftthfer clinical findings, they should be repeated. Assuming, however, that both the basal metabolic rate and the radioactive iodine up- tae results Were correct, the only conclusion Would be that the patient had taken an enormous overdose of thyroid.
