South ruffs; cashes his ace of diamonds; ruffs a diamond; ruffs a heart to get back to his hand; ruffs his last diamond; leads dummy's 10 of trumps; overtakes; pulls trumps and eventually loses two of his three clubs. Suppose he had led just one round of trumps before starting on ruffing diamonds. After he had ruffed his last diamond he would have had no way to get to his hand to draw trumps. He would try a heart and West would get to make his jack of trumps. By Oswald & James Jacoby As Reese points out, the commonest reason for not playing trumps immediately is that you want to ruff some of your losers in dummy. After this hint it is easy to see that South should not touch trumps until he has done something about those two small diamonds in his hand. Can he afford one round of trumps? No, although it is not too easy to see why he can't. West holds the first trick with his jack of hearts and A Minnesota reader wants to know if we would open one notrump with: *K xxx ?A + K Jxx *A J xx He points out we have 16 high cards and stoppers in all four suits. The answer is a resounding "no". When you have any singleton, the chances are so good that you should play in a suit that you should always start with a suit bid. This time the right opening is one diamond. (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.) (For a copy of JACOQY MODERN, send $1 to: "Win at ' Bridge," c/o this newspaper. P.O. Box 489. Radio City Station. New York. N.Y. 10019) HEALTH Lawrence E. Lamb, M.D. Effects of hormones By Lawrence Lamb, M.D. DEAR DR. LAMB — One of your columns about the menopause and Premarin raised some questions for me. About four years ago, I had a kidney removed for kidney cancer, no treatments or medication for cancer. Since then, I had a total hysterectomy, but not for cancer, and I take Premarin daily, three weeks on and one week off. I am 40 years old. As a cancer patient and not having a uterus, just what is Premarin doing for me? Since I don't have a uterus, the lining can't grow from hormone stimulation nor sluff off when the hormones are stopped for a week, so what does it do? Is it necessary to take it and how does it act without a uterus? DEAR READER — You should discuss this with your doctor in relation to your previous cancer. The decision as to whether a female or male hormone should be used depends entirely on the type of cancer. To illustrate the point, female hormones are useful in the treatment of cancer of the prostate that has spread beyond the gland itself, but may speed up the spread of breast cancer. I presume that your kidney tumor was either benign, and hence no further treatment, or it is a type of tumor not affected by hormones. Premarin as other female hormones does act on the uterus, but that is only a small part of its action. If a woman is low on female hormones from other sources after the menopause, or after the ovaries have been surgically removed, replacement therapy prevents hot flashes and other changes attributed to the menopause and post menopausal phase. Some women produce adequate amounts of female hormones from the adrenal gland (its cortex) and do not require hormone replacement, but only an examina- tion by your doctor can establish the need or lack of need for replacement hormones. Female and male hormones have a general effect on the body beyond the primary sex organs. That includes such things as affecting hair growth and distribution, muscular strength, perhaps the retention of calcium in the bones, and in some cases, the tendency to have a high or low cholesterol level. You may be interested to know that a very good study at Vanderbilt University showed that women who took estrogen therapy after surgical removal of the ovaries with a hysterectomy lived longer and felt better than women who did not take hormones. In both groups, of course, cancer of the uterus was not a consideration since neither group had a uterus. Why did these women do better receiving female hormones? The big factor was that these women had a lower rate of heart attacks, strokes, and a decreased rate of cancer deaths from all cancers (but within the group a slight increase in breast cancer). There is evidence that suggests female hormones may help protect women from lung cancer. So, women should know that in certain cases, female hormones may increase the risk of cancer, but in many other cases, it decreases the risk of many common cancers and may increase a woman's chances for a longer and healthy life. I think you need some information on the overall action of female hormones, so I am sending you The Health Letter number 5-12, Menopause.

FBI finds ^drowned 9 L.R. man OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) The FBI Wednesday arrested an Arkansas man, on a warrant charging failure to appear for sentencing, who was reported to have drowned two years ago. Wayne Gilbert, acting chief agent for the Oklahoma FBI office, said Roger Wayne Amyx, 37, Little Rock, was arrested without incident at an Oklahoma City apartment where he had been living. Amyx pleaded guilty on Jan. 15,1975, to charges he collected Social Security taxes and income taxes from his employees, but then failed to send the collected money on to the federal government. On Jan. 24,1975, he was supposed to appear for sentencing, but failed to do so. He was reported drowned while fishing on the Arkansas River the next day. "Authorities were a little sceptical at the time but couldn't prove anything," Gilbert said. A warrant for his arrested was issued on March 4, 1975. "He admitted to us today (Wednesday) that he left Arkansas in January 1975 and went to Mexico City," Gilbert said. "He stayed there for about six months before returning to the states. He has lived in several states in this region since then." Gilbert did not say how the FBI located Amyx here. Amyx was being held by the U.S. marshal's office here awaiting transfer back to Arkansas. "They're not going to set bond here. That'll come when he is returned to Arkansas. I'm not sure when he will be returned, though," Gilbert said.

Real Estate Today by Gus Hogan Realtor TAKEOVER NOT AUTOMATIC When buying an existing home, taking over a mortgage can be practical and profitable. But be cautious. Don't take for granted that assigning the mortgage to another is automatic. , The lender has a stake in who's going to repay him. Many mortgages are written which specifically prohibit this practice without the consent of the mortgage lender. The teeth will be found in an inserted acceleration clause which makes the whole balance due and payable upon sale. The bank can activate or waive this clause depending on the credit rating of the buyer, maintenance of the property or spread between original and current interest rates. If the interest spread is great - don't count on a takeover mortgage. Before you advertise "low int. mort. takeover", and set yourself up for a letdown, why not have us check your mortgage and advise you. Look for this column each week.
