Your . l/i/ortfi - P/ease With tlie nation's economy strapped to make cml* meet—due to the war and other fiii'tors—people have cast a suspicious eye at the ultra- expensive space program.

It was up to East to make the correct play at this point. If West held the missing diamond, East's only hope would be to lead his last spade and hope that it would produce a trump trick for his partner. As you can see, the diamond play sets the contract. The | spade lead allows South to ruff, draw trumps and get rid of his last diamond on a spade. How did East figure out that the diamond play was correct? He thought like the declarer. It was ratiier apparent that South started with nine red cards. If six were hearts and headed by ace - king, South would simply have played ace- ing of trumps once the spade finesse worked and then would 'have taken a discard of one of 1 his three diamonds. Thus it became apparent that South was i trying to handle four little diamonds and had started with only five trumps. By BRUCE BIOSSAT NBA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON (NBA) The Republican party in Mich, igan is trying to gain what it has not had for decades — the trust and support of the problem-ridden people Oi the cities. In Detroit and many other places, it has created what amounts to a social action arm, whose goal is problem - solving in behalf of thousands of harassed, frustrated, often angry citizens who are looking for help. At the core of (his so-called "involvement program" are At its simplest level the pro-) act swiftly and decisively to 1m- gram occasionally looks a little: prove the Republican image in like Ihe old "Christmas baskets for the poor" which Democratic big city bosses made famous in the early 20th century.

He's doing plenty of other things — singing in clubs, making records, guest shots on other television show — but not ' for the money. He says he can't keep much of it anyhow, so he .does it for fun. Breck says The Big Valley is a five-star show — Barbara Stanwyck, Linda Evans, Richard Long, Lee Majors and himself. They each get to carry six shows a season.

South didn't like to keep re- bidding his five card heart suit, but the game was rubber bridge and he had 100 honors. Furthermore, once he got started he never got a real chance to quit. He won the club lead witSi his jack and decided his best play would be to take the spade finesse, so he led a spade and finessed dummy's queen at trick two. Then he discarded a diamond on the ace of spades and ruffed a spada with his ten of trumps. West overruffed and played ace and eight of diamonds.

Enterprise DEAR DR. LAWRENCE: For | "counlerreflex." ive years I've tried to wear \ to raise her too five years dentures but I can't. I've been to many dentists and had many sets of teeth made, but always with the same results — they make me gag. I am a high- strung woman in my upper 40s. ANSWER: Gagging can be a disturbing problem for patients and dentists. Just as some people gag when simply thinking about a repugnant sighl.taste or smell they've experienced, so some gag at the very thought of wearing dentures. Reminds me of the patient whose gag reflex was so easily triggered she gagged at the sight of the impression tray coming toward her. Her dentist had to use a technique he calls Blytheville (Art.) r iurler MPV Saturday, December 9,1967 Page Four He asked her foot from the foot rest, to fully extend it and hold it in that position. In little more than a minute she was struggling to keep her foot up and she gasped she couldn't last more than another ging, a postnasal drip and thick saliva may add to a patient's discomfort. This condition can often be relieved by chewing gum or sucking mints. When gagging arises in the mind it's more difficult to over- j come and may involve emotional or environmental problems, menopausal disorders, excessive pressures at work or at debilitating disease.

That's the moment he lems suggest consultation with too the impression. If new dentures arouse gagging reflex, then they are probably at fault. However, the usual complaint that the upper denture is too long and extends too far back into the throat is rarely true. More common causes are crowding o( tiie tongue because of thick pink material, or poor placement of tcclh; or overextended borders; or "open bite" which doesn't allow enough space between upper and lower teeth when the jaw is at rest. These faults can be easily corrected. While they rarely cause ill- physician or psychiatrist.
