PRESSURE NUMBERS Many people have a strange ascination about Wood pressure numbers.-These numbers (read ings) ar emeaningful only to doctors. They compare then vitH the previous readings, am hus gain insight into the value of the drugs they are prescribing There are two blood pressur umbers. The first, or higher ne, is called the systolic blood pressure. This measures the iressure in the. arteries at the ime that the heart pumps blood nto them. The second,--or lower number* s called the diastolic. This indicates the pressure in the blood Â·essels in between each beat of the heart. It is for this reason that one hears reference o their blood pressure as 'being, 'or example, "120 over 80." In many instances, the lower, or diastolic, pressure is more sigV nificant than the higher one. Â» Numbers are always terrifyi ing to people who do not understand their aignifcance. One should not, therefore, compare one's own blood pressure numbers with those of another. ' NEED TREATMENT . Health agencies are relentless In their drive to flush out of hiding people who have un_recognized high blood pressured By bringing them out into tha open and beginning intensive treatment with drugs, diet, and rest, heart disease statistics and mortality from stroke can be significantly minimized. To reiterate: today high blood pressure in most instances is a controllable disorder. But it is only controllable if people are freed from their anxiety and seek the advice of their doctors. B.

Crossword By Eugene Sheffer You are South, both sides vulnerable. The bidding has l]een: East South West North Pass Pass Pass 1 * Pass ? What would you bid now with each of the following four hands? 1.4KJ9862 VQ94 *KJ8 *10 2.AK9653 V6 Â«QJ5 *AQ74 3.484 Â¥7653 492 *AK842 4.45 VA982 *K3753 +A03 1. Two spades. A player who passes originally denies the values for an opening bid, but if he passes a near opening bid lie should in most cases identify the maximum pass as soon as possible. One way of doing that is by a jump-shift. Without the previous pass, response of one spade would be automatic, for this would be 100 per cent forcing. But with it he promising nature of the land can best be shown by a ump to two spades. Counting he heart fit, already estan- ished, and the excellent spades, here is a very good chance or game. The jump-shift alerts partner to this possibility. One spade.' In some respects this is even closer to a maximum pass than the previous hand, but, because of the heart misfit and the relativelj veak spades, you respond only one spade. The heart bia reduces the value of the hand and makes game uncertain i- despite tile 12 highcard points. The previous hand had only 10 points but was much more )romising -- because of the leart fit -- than this one with 12 points. 3. Two hearts. Some players would bid two clubs, blissfully gnoring the possibility". that partner might pass. It is far better to announce the heart support at once. This could induce a further bid by partner on a hand with whic line would pass a two club response. Two hearts is practically cen- to raise partner's .values ACROSS 1 Watch pocket 4 Forbid 1 Entreat 11 Affirm 13 Greek letter 14 Single 15 Western alliance abbr.) 16 Obtained 17 Affirmatives 18 Loose 20 Tropical tree 22 Actress Novak 24 Improve (colloq.) 23 Fish dish 32 City in Oklahoma 33 Actress Lange 34 Bolt's companion 38 Golf mounds 37 Total 39 Collects 41 Bank clerk 43 Deface Â« Retain 46 Defeat SO Routine 53 Merriment ' 55 Roman patrl6t 66 English river 57 Epoch 58 Entanglement 59 Portion 60 Corded fabric 61 Neon DOWN 1 Winnows 2 Elliptical 3 Greek letter 4 Plead 5 Above 6 Brazilian seaport 7 Pilgrim's landing place 8 Menu item 9 Miscellany 10 Affirmative Avg. solution time: 25 min. fe U.S. artist 19 Young goat 21 Land parcel 23 Chess pieces 25 Swiss painter 26 Employer 27 Go by 28 Young child 29 Sharpen 30 Precious gem 31 Floor covering 35 Headwear 38 Confederate general 40 Marble 42 Allude 45 Chaste 47 Sounded 48 Portico 49 Tiny children 50 Knock Â·51 Eggs "52 High hill Answer to yesterday's puzzle,' 54 Siesta 18 12. 48 2 or 3 points stir him 'into and may thus bidding again. while two clubs could leave his values unchanged and cause him to pass. 4. Four hearts. Considering the trump fit and the attractive 5-4-3-1- distribution, this hand now ranks as a full opening bid. The rule that an opening bid facing an opening bid means a game is therefore applied by going directly to four hearts. .' A raise to three hearts would be overly cautious. A double raise by a passed player is not forcing, and you migiht get left at the post by bidding only three hearts. This could too easily prove to be short of the mark.
