A weird new Canasta idea ha just been developed in Englan. They call it "Acaba." At any time during a hand, whe •t is your turn to play, you ma say Acaba"—'according to thi iew English - custom. That end .ne hand' immediately. The card ire mixed without any countin at ail, and the opponents get 150C points for the hand. No more am no less. Your side gets nothing a One further wrinkle: At you urn you may-ask your partner fo: permission , to say^. "Acaba." Thi Derates just like asking for permission to meld out. Let me make it clear right from the beginning that there is nothing tega or official about this strange fi.ngrlish practice. However, I find t rather interesting —and I am jure Canasta players will want to try it out once or. twice. It has a curious effect on the ?ame. When you'pick up a really big discard pile, you {tend to meld out at once if .you ckn score substantially more .than 1500 points. Otherwise the next player will end the fun by saying "Acaba." Suppose the pile is. born frozen and just stays that way for round after round. It mounts up and up each player discarding carefully until it contains several natural' canastas. Finally, you reach a point where you have to make a dangerous discard. This is a familiar situation, of Oldest course, and in an ordinary game he United Stab you 3 ust cross your fingers . and ally of Louisville make your diescard.

We live in thc'coun try and are somewhat 1'inancialJj embarrassed. Sometimes when bend over in the -garden I -get a catch on my left side and m breathing is painful. L.T.M. A—In the first place this may no be heart trouble at all. In the sec ond, if the symptoms are caused by heart disease, L.T.M. must have tests made so that the treatment is adjusted to the particular kind of heart disease present and the capacity of the heart at that particular time. In other words, he may need one kind of medicine or another—or none at all. Furthermore, someone else could nave symptoms which sound exactly like those of L.T.M. and vet which are due to an entirely different cause and need utterly dif- ' —«• vttui^m *wrur>, -_.-— must find some way to get an accurate diagnosis and the exact treatment he, needs. This cannot be obtained by mail. .•**.* Q—My hands are in water a great deal, and .although I use lotions and creams they turn fiery red and are this way even when I am in a warm house. Could this be a nervous condition or should something else be done? K.B.S. A—This sounds like a true irritation of the skin from water, some chemical in the- water, or an allergy to cold. It is probably noi due to "nervousness" and you should consult your doctor or a skin specialist about it. * * * ^ Q—What causes tinnitus, can it to deaf- ;A—Tinnitus is merely the medical name for ringing In ears.
