(Central Press) Society News BARCLAY ON BRIDGE B y S h e p a r d B a r c l a y "the Authority on Authorities" THE NO TRTJMP GAMBLE MATCH POINT DUPLICATE is the greatest of all bridge laboratories. Since the aamc deal gets played at different contracts, dependent on the tendencies o£ various bidders, it furnishes evidence on what can occur, much Better than the mere conjecture which develops In the post-mortems of rubber bridge. One of the main points still being tested In the duplicate proving ground is the relative merit of no trump and suit contracts when the hando seem adaptable to both. A A K Q 7 6 4 V J 6 + J 6 5 * 10 0 3 V A 10 4 Q 7 2 Jf. A K Q 9 7 (Dealer: East. Neither side vulnerable.) At all tables of a duplicate tournament South started the bidding of this deal with 1-Club, North responded with 1-Spade and South bid 1-No trump Instead o£ rebiddlng clubs. North In all cases then rebld at 2-Spades. South then supported at 3-Spades, some Norths going to 4-Spades, some to S-No trump, having three to the J in the two unhid suits which the partners had Indicated they could atop. Where spades were played five- odd were made, with the loss of two diamond tricks. North's heart losers were thrown on South's clubs. Where no trump was played, the result depended on the timing. At some tables, a diamond was led because West did not like to under- load his heart K. East cashed his two diamonds and remrned the suit, declarer winning anc) then running ten more tricks to make 5-No trump, which was tloji for North- Soutti on tho deal. At other tables, whete a heart was led or where East switched to a heart after winning the diamond lead, Bast-West got a heart trick in addition to two diamonds and held North-South to four-odd, which was bottom for them. So, as far aa the evidence of this daal is concerned, the relative merits of the major suit contract versus no trump Is uncertain. There la no argument, however, about the greater safety of the spade contract hi rubber bridge. * * · Tomorrow's Problem A 9 4 2 V Q 10 8 4 3 « A 7 J S 4 A K 6 3 tt K 3 * K J 10 6 5 + 9 3 2 (Dealer: South.

FOR FEATURE TIME CALL 599 TODAY AND TOMORROW It Can't Happen Here-Hot Even in Alcatraz!; ALSO COMEDY, NEWS, NOVELTY Norma Shearer -- Clark Gable "IDIOT'S DELIGHT" Whooping (tough Mistaken in Adults · LOG By LOGAN CLENDENING, M. D. WE ARE in the midst of an epidemic of whooping cough of -widespread distribution on the North American continent. I heard of many cases in New Yoik and when I visited the Pacific coast there it was also. There arc a great many coses among adults. Nothing is stiange about that because in all epidemics of children's diseases adults are likely to be sporadically affected, but what is strange is that so many cases of whooping- cough in adults Dr. Clendcning will answer questions of general interest' only, and then only through his column. go on unrecognized. The cases are called la grippe or bronchitis and drag along until somebody hears the patient give whoop and that reveals the diagnosis. The lack of recognition comes up very naturally. The doctor sees the patient only once perhaps and finds n cough and a temperature. It isn't natural to think of whooping cough in a strapping husky of 25. And the "cold" drags along. Nobody thinks to tell the doctor about the vomiting or the whooping, and the condition may become rather serious, to say nothing of the spread of the disease from these wandering, unrecognized carriers. Case of Interne To show how real this situation may be, I know of an interne in a hospital, a jrrown man of 30, who cama down with a cough. He was surrounded by doctors and nurses, but nobody realized what was the matter with him until he visited friend's house -where he fell into a paroxysm of coughing, strangled, gagged and threw up. Then the old grandmother o£ the household exclaimed, "Heaven bless us! the lad's got whooping cough." I know of another case in a young lady of 18 whose mother insisted she had whooping cough but two doctors stoutly maintained she did not. A blood count showed the doctors were wrong and the mother right. The disease may run its course without the typical whoop ever being heard. So a cough not accompanied by fever (of any high, de- Lescencc. Treating Adult In treatment for the adult case, the cough should be stringently controlled by sedatives. Nutrition muat be maintained as the vomiting may cause weakness and considerable loss of weight. The vomiting is not accompanied by nausea; it is simply a reflex gagging due to the ropy mucus in the throat, and after every vomiting more food should b« forced. Tha best drug is still probably antipyrine, which in adults assumes the role of a specific. But the most important thing is to prevent the adult whooping cough patient from spreading the disease to others. QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Fan Bacteriologist: "What causes a gnawing or growling sensation in the stomach? It becomes embarrassing. I eat sufficiently and the elimination, is good. Could it bo a nerve reaction?" Answer--The sensation you describe corresponds very closely to acid dyspepsia. If it is that, it is easily relieved by doses of alkalis, such as sodium bicarbonate, half a teaspoonful with a glass of water. W. H. S.: "Is the X-ray technique successful in the dislodgment of adhesions of one or two years' standing? Can X-ray photographs be used to measure the extent and progress of adhesions?" Answer--The X-ray does not remove adhesions nor affect their removal in any way. Adhesions in the abdomen can often be detected by a diagnostic X^ray.
