With the world in turmoil and with practically none of us perfectly calm and contented about our personal problems, it seems probable that a whole new crop of ulcers will arise. These ulcers can develop either in the stomach itself or in that part of the intestine immediately below the stomach known as the j duodenum. Both, may be called peptic ulcer, though they do not behave exactly alike, are not treated the same way, and possibly have somewhat different origins. Nevertheless they are similar since in both a part of the inside lining is eaten away and the acid in the stomach secretions interferes with healing. Peptic ulcers may come on slowly or rapidly, may be large or small, may be located one place or another. All these things enter into the symptoms, the ease of diag- \osis, and the treatment. But they are alike in being irritated by too tiuch acid in the gastric juice and needing time for the ulcerated area o heal over. It is most distressing to receive Everything found on a real circus lot — but it's all in. miniature The world's largest model circus ever carved by one man has arrived in Waterbury. Made entirely by hand—every piece whittled by a wood-carver frorti.Meriden, Connecticut—this circus display will open Tuesday at the Howland-Hughes store in Waterbiiry, continuing through Saturda-y. The upper photo shows a woman spectator looking into the little Big Top. This tent alone measures 16 feet long, and there are 15 other tents in the model layout. The lower photo shows the circus trains parked near the circus lot These trains; too ( were made with just a jack-knife and a jigsaw by Bill Brir.ley. A team of work elephants is seen pulling a circus wagon off the railroad llatcars—assisted by Brlnley, the man who carved tile entire model circus. The public will be admitted free to see this miniature- show, which took Brinley 25 years to build. +..JACOBY ON BRIDGE + By OSWALD JACQBY Written for NBA Service Expert Bids Even On Faceless Cards Quite. a few years ago a manufacturer of. playing cards experimented with a. new kind of ink that wore off the faces of the cards in just a few minutes of. ordinary play. One of the decks was used in a game at New York's famous NORTH 23 4AQ109 VQ103 •'-; 410762 ' #J7 .

Charlie went on bidding in his accustomed confident tone long- after it was impossible to tell a deuce from an ace. This merely confirmed -what his fellow experts had believed for years —,. that Charlie will make at least one bid on any .conceivable 13,/cards that he finds in his hand. In today's hand, played at the recent Eastern States tournament, Whitebrook held the East cards. Curiously enough, he was the only player at the table who didn't overbid. West opened the deuce of hearts, dummy put up the ten, and White- brook won with the king. He then shifted to the four of diamonds, hoping that South would have a guess. As it happened South . had to play the king of diamonds, and West signalled with the nine. Declarer finessed' dummy's nine of spades .and relru'rhed to~his hand by finessing the qijeen of clubs. He continued by leading the jack of spades /.for ' another trump finesse and drew all of West's trumps. - ''•."."'."'' . " Whitebrook ' ; Bad ; to - find four discards on "the four rounds of trumps. He .could afford to part with three low hearts but then had to discard the. ace of diamonds to avoid a possible "end play. Declarer next led the jack of clubs from dummy, . and White- brook carefully played ' low. (To cover would allow South to take the club ace, give up a trick to the club ten, and make, his contract with a trump and two good clubs.) ' - . ., Dummy's jack of clubs held tho trick, but now declarer had to lead a red card from dummy. Whatever he did, he could' make only his trump and the ace of clubs. He was'therefore set one trick. CARD SENSE : Q—With both sides vulnerable your partner deals '. and bids' one no-trump. The next player doubles.- You hold: Spades K-J-9-7-54, Hearts 7-5, Diamonds J-9-7-6, Club 4. What do you'do?. A—Bid three spades. This indicates a long suit and good distribution without enough high cards for a redouble. If not vulnerable you would bid. four spades.

Written for NEA Service Think Before YdilGrab Pile When you decide whether or not to.take the discard pile there are four important points to consider: 1. The.number of cards in the 'pile. This is the most important consideration, If the pile contains .more than.eight cards, it is alriiost invariably wise to take it. If the pile contains from five. to eight cards, you have a very close decision to make. If the pile contains only four cards (or'-fewer) it is usually good play to refuse to •take .it.,-. ' 2. The chance that your side will get the pile later on if you pass it up. If you are, certain to get it eventually, you can afford to pass a pile of any size. If you have very, little chance to get the pile later on, you must take, even a small pile. ' . S. The.value of the cards in the pile. . Obviously, a pile that contains a card that gives you? a canasta is more valuable than a pile that contains only odd unmeldable cards. You can pass up a worthless pile because the loss is small even if it gets away from you; hut you., don't take such risks, with a really .valuable pile. Incidentally,, you take no chances with a-p'ile that'C.ontains cards.that are .very valuable to the opponents. It's just,?.astimportant to stop/.the is to.'make progress of your own. . - ... .. ... 4. Your method, of taking the le^ If you can take the pile by addingfthe/itop, card to; one of your melds, you are saving, all the cards in -your hand for future, use. . If you' take the pile by using two natural 'cards, - you are using up some of your'reserves. If you must use- a_.wild'c;,take the .discard pife'.(together '.with- a natural card, of/course), you^are using up a very valuable piece : 'bf property. , . -•'..;. -"•::.'_- -V.". »-./'.* -..* •-.'.:. "-: Q—How many wild cards are you allowed to discard - into a frozen pack? Soine-' of the -local players allow, only; one wild ..card per person. Is .there'any such 1 limit in the official, rules? A—There is no limit in the official rules,- If it is your turn to play and you wish to discard a deuce or a joker, you may do so— regardless of how many wild cards have been discarded previously. Local players who favor a different procedure are just laying'. up trouble'.for,,themselves. After all, what" do they expect a player to do if He .Happens to hold noth ing but wild'cards in his hand?

His lifeeimt battling average was 367, the highest ever achieved by any, player. Q—Did the Pilgrims bring a hymn bo<jk".'to America; A—The Ams^orth Psalter was the only book "of printed music which the „ Pilgrims brought with .hem to, America. letters from people having symptoms which might well mean the presence of an ulcer but 'Who do not seem to, want to do much about it. Yet that happens frequently, x perhaps "because they expect an ulcer to be more painful than it actually is. Many ulcers, for example, cause only a slight amount 01" pain', or none at all, and yet should be treated just as carefully as those which are causing worsa symptoms. DON'T NEGLECT IT Actually any strange sensation In or. near the stomach should raise the suspicion of ulcer. The most common is pain—but usually one which is not present all the time. As a rule (-but not always) this pain is absent on getting up in the morning but is likely to come on about one to three' hours after meals. Often it will go away it milk is drunk or some food la taken. ' The pain varies in unpleasantness. Sometimes it is little more than a vague feeling of discomfort, other times It may be sharp and severe. . In neither case should it be neglected.
