D. Written for NBA Service Don't Get Into A Big Stew Over Threats To Your Health BY the time we have lived thirty or forty years most of us have had at least one serious illness,; accident or operation and'yet most of us are in pretty good health. This testifies to the fact that the human body is :nore rugged than we sometimes think .and possesses an amazing ability, to restore :its functions and '<eep them in good running order. Nearly everyone, for example, is exposed - at one time or another to .he germ which causes tuberculosis, yet few of us get an active Eorm .of the disease and even most of 'those who do get over it. We have on our skins a germ called the staphylococcus, but this does not often break ...through our defenses. Any number of other germs are present in the air we breathe, the .food we. eat, the objects we touch i n d yet tbey are successfully thrown off most of the time. When they do break through our defenses we usually beat them and later our health is as good as before. Aside from germs we are exposed 'to accidents and injuries of many kinds. Again we escape most 3f the time, but if a bone is brok- en or a deep gash is made in the body, healing usually takes place without too much dfficulty — particularly with the help..of modern surgery and such "germ fighters as penicillin. All this is worth remembering because it is too easy to think of all the possible diseases or injuries to which we are exposed. There isnt' any use getting ourselves into a state .of chronic 'fright because something may happen to our health sometime. Moat of the things we fear never take place, and if they do, recovery is often much better than could be expected. HARD TO PREDICT One of the'hardest things for members of my profession try to predict what will .happen to. a person after an illness or accident. It is impossible 'to be right all the time Not long ago I saw a man in. his seventies-' W h o tooked ten years younger, rode horseback., every'day and walked without an apparent limp. Twenty years ago after an automobile accident he was told he would never be able to walk again without crutches. If one must be wrong this is the way we. like:it. + JACOBY ON BRIDGE + By OSWALD JACOBY Written for NBA Service Dp.p't Be In Rush To Draw Trumps PERHAPS South should have tried three no-trump in today's hand. North would have passed readily enough,. and South would have made nine tricks without the least difficulty. The actual contract of four spades was far more interesting. ' West opened the queen of hearts, and South won with the ace. South drew just two rounds of trumps and then switched to diamonds. West had to take the first trick in that suit since otherwise South would have switched back to trumps and taken four tricks in each black suit together with one in each red suit. After taking the ace of diamonds, West led another heart, and South carefully discarded instead of ruff- ing. This was a key, play, -for now the defenders could' do nothing to defeat the contract. " If West, led another heart, du'm- stopp'ed after drawing just two my could .ruff. (That Js why South stopped after drawing just two rounds of trumps). If West led anything else, declarer could easily win, draw the rest of the trumps, and then run the rest of the tricks. South would have' lost his contract if he had begun by drawing all of the trumps: He could take nine tricks if he chpse, but whenever he led diamonds West would take the ace of diamonds and cash the setting 'tricks with hearts.

By .making this bid', you indicate a desirable opening lead to your partner. :- " TODAY'S QUESTION With neither side . vulnerable, your partner deals and passes and the next player also passes.

One Year Ago Five delegates were named to the District no. 2 convention from Local 45, CIO: president George Froehlich, P. J. Gallucci, Michael San Angelo, Guida Bou- chel and Vernon LaFave. Announcmeht was made of the coming retirement of veteran Fire Chief William Lee. 30 Years Ago Frank T. Green was unanimously renominated for warden.

Joseph Reynolds, son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Reynolds,. Cherry street, sang a solo with the Holy Cross glee club. + Questions and Answers Q—What is the story as to why Abraham Lincoln grew a beard? A—To please a young, girl, .Lincoln said. Little Grace Bedell wrote him during his campaign for the presidency, suggesting that he should let his whiskers grow and he acted upon her advice. . . Q—Are the famous Texas longhorns dying out? A—Texas longhorns have been practically extinct for many .years- They ,were plentiful on the ranges of the Great Plains in the early part of the last century; but they are never .seen'any more except as an occasional curiosity in'a stock show or rodeo. Q^-How'long.doesl'lt,,take the elevator to reach the top of the Washington National Monument? A—About one -minute. - Q—Are'-. cranberries still harvested: by hand? A—Today, most harvesting is accomplished with machinery. Care and speed are necessary to prevent bruising, but the scoops are far less expensive than hand picking. Q—Do the residents of Guam pay TJ. S. income taxes? A — The people of Guam have been ordered to start .paying income tax as of Jan. 1, 1951. Under the new Organic Act for the Pacific Islands the tax could have been delayed.until July 21, 1951. What's Right? Your wife is telling an anecdote to a group of friends and she makes a statement you think is wrong. WRONG: Interrupt her to say flatly that.she is-wrong.
