She told me she will not report it. She is so afraid of surgery. She is quite attractive ' and shapely and she is afraid of being disfigured. I am trying to get her to report this and get something done. I told her -it doesn't necessarily, mean surgery, although I admit I was not really on steady ground when I said that. Can you elucidate this issue? Mrs. K.D. I hope you are overcoming your daughter's reluctance. You are not giving her bad information. A breast lump, first of all, doesn't have to mean cancer at all, and if it is a malignancy it doesn't necessarily mean mastectomy. And the sooner she reports this sign the better the chances that more conservative approaches will be feasible. If the lump is cancerous, then a careful evaluation can be made before a final treatment decision has to be made. Many patients are being treated today with a combination of lump removal and follow-up radiation therapy. That removes the basic problem Medical Paul Donohue. M.D. and gets rid of any bits of cancer tissue left behind. Not all women are going to be candidates for this kind of treatment. But it is becoming popular and your daughter has enough at stake here to want to find out about it. Women have everything to gain and nothing to lose in reporting breast lumps just as quickly as possible. I'll sleep easier at night knowing she has taken your good advice. Dear Dr. Donohue: Our 12-year-old daughter was told she had slight scoliosis and that we should have her doctor take a look for possible follow-up. The degree of bending of the spine was said to be 20 percent. Is that bad? We are going to take her in. Just wonder if her younger sister, who was not in the screening program, should be taken in at the same time. Can it be genetic? -J.I. By all means, take the younger girl in. Some forms of scoliosis can be genetic and often detectible at earlier ages. But even for the 12-year-old, the detection is important, for now you can keep track of the progress. One cannot be absolute about such things, but generally a curvature of 15 degrees is not surprising in a young girl. The danger is of a worsening during the pubertal growth spurt she is to undergo. Your doctor can evaluate this better first hand, and determine whether she needs any therapy or bracing, etc. At the same time, he will look for such factors in curvature as uneven leg length. I support such routine screening for scoliosis. For every parent unnecessarily upset by what really 'might be a routine normal finding, there is undoubtedly one prudently alerted to a real back problem. The booklet on spine health you asked for in your letter is on the way. Other readers can still order it by writing me in care of this newspaper, enclosing a long, stamped, self-addressed envelope and $1.00. Ask for "Backache and Spine Problems." Technicality jeopardizes hopes By Irene Lacher Knight-Ridder Newspapers MIAMI In the tournament of champions of television's "Jeopardy" game show, Lionel Goldbart, the drop-out poet and trivia wizard of Miami Beach, will try to 'win $100,000 Wednesday night. Poor Goldbart. He will blow it. He will come up with the right answer, and forget to play the game right. This is so because it happened in a California studio late last month. The show is on videotape. "It's a tragic story, it really is," says Goldbart, 52. "I lost on a technicality." Goldbart, a part-time newspaper vendor, is the intrepid "Jeopardy" prince who wanted to be king. Last February, Goldbart won $34,997 on the show because he wanted to make his mother proud of him, something he hadn't gotten around to for most of his adult life. When "Jeopardy" informed him by mail that he qualified for the tournament, his mission was clear. He had two months to train for the championship. ' Goldbart memorized Trivial Pursuit cards. He read five trivia books with 15,000 facts about presidents and Oscar winners. He thumbed through a desk encyclopedia and the World Almanac. He scrutinized the Guinness Book of World Records. He lost 20 pounds. Mostly, he learned facts. "The most money ever lost in one day on the stock market was lost by Ray Kroc, the founder of McDonald's $64 million in one day," Goldbart says. "He's dead now." Bridge Charles Goreni Neither vulnerable. East deals.

Dble Pass 4 Pass Pass Pass Opening lead: King of Opening bids that describe your distribution are well and good if your side buys the hand. But if you end up defending, you might have given declarer valuable clues to playing the hand. Consider this hand from the Mixed Pair Championship at the recent World Bridge Olympiad in Miami. After South passed a hand that many would have opened, West's two hearts showed an opening bid with at least five hearts and four clubs. After North's takeout double, South wasted no time in bidding the full value of his hand. West led the king of hearts, then shifted to his singleton diamond. At the helm was the veteran Flo-ridian star Jack Denny, and he made short work of the hand. He won the diamond in the closed hand and led a club toward the queen. West grabbed his king and exited safely enough with a club to the queen. When West followed to both the ace and king of trumps, his hand was virtually an open book. His bid had announced at least nine cards in hearts and clubs, and he had already shown up with two trumps and a diamond. Therefore, only one of his cards was unknown, and Denny didn't much care what it was. He led a trump from dummy and confidently finessed the. nine. When that held, he could claim his contract. Actually, the contract was secure even if West's unknown card turned out to be the trump ten. While he would then have been able to win the trump trick, he would have been end played. A club return would have been into declarer's A-10, and a heart return would set up dummy's queen. (If West returns the ace of hearts, declarer ruffs and can get to the table with a diamond to cash the queen of hearts.)
