Your Daily Horoscope inuimiiiiii Look in the section in which think carefully before express- your birthday comes and find what your outlook is, according to the stars. FOR TUESDAY, AUGUST 13, 1074 ARIES (Mar. 21 to Apr. 20) Stand pat on decisions which have been carefully made. Resist temptations to "forget" iromises, make spur-oF-the-mo- ment changes. Heeding all this, you should have a good day. TAURUS (Apr. 21 to May 21) Think "big and aim for top achievement. This is no day for pessimism. Concentrate on essentials, and don't overlook even the smallest of opportunities. GEMINI (May 22 to June 21) Be careful not to provoke others in business or social ga therings. You may detect flaws in the reasoning of some, but speak sparingly -- and o n l y where it will HELP. CANCER (June 22 to July 23) If you are not sure of how to move in a certain situation best put off action for a while; you are not likely to get ans wers "out of the blue." LEO (July 24 to Aug. 23) Some strain may be put on your resources,but avoid an xiety. You rarely quake in the face of adversity, but presnt in fluences induce such inclina tions. VIRGO (Aug. 24 to Sept. 23) Don't be anxious about somi unexptectcd change in y o u : work area: it could prove mon beneficial than you think. Bu don't initiate drastic change, yourself without good reason. LIBRA (Sept. 24 to Oct. 23) Don't anticipate trouble or th failure of your endeavors, bii DO be cautious in certai areas. And, as with Gemin: Is "essential high blood pres- ;ure" different from other orms of high blood pressue? Mrs. H.B,, Conn. Dear Mr. B.: "Essential" or "primary" hypertension is a disorder whose origin is unknown. It is suspected that heredity plays an important role in its occurrence. Apparently, a host of o t h e r [actors like stress, afie, diet, and metabolism play a role in its production. So complicated is "essential hypertension" that it is considered a complex of dis eases rather than a single unit. The exact cause must be tracked down before treatmen is instituted. With drugs, reduc tin of weight and proper .diet many cases of "essential hyper tension" lhat previously coul not 'be controlled are now kep in balance. HARMFUL LAXATIVE We occasionally use calome as a laxative. Is this a dan gerous drug? Mrs. L.L., Ky Dear Mrs. L.: Calomel has for years bee used both as a laxative, and in some instances, to reduce fc ver. In recent years calome which is mercurous chlorid' has been considered unsaf nd should not be used, or pui 1 - lased over the counter. ' A number of other prcpa- ations that can he bought with-. ut prescriptions also contain, lercurous chloride and should e avoided. Severe mercury poisoning has jeen reported in people wo took alomel as a laxative (or many. ears. Let me emphasize that those vho may have taken it oecas 1 , onally should not live in dire, ear that they have'been pois; oncd. Simply discontinue its ise. There are other effective'' nil harmless laxatives. : VITAMIN BOAST : I give myself an injection of vitamin B-12 whenever I feel tired. I have b e e n told "slop it, but 1 don't know why. Miss B.J.A., Ohio Dear Miss A.: ' Vitamin B-12 is remarkably, valuable when given for very, specific medical reasons such as pernicious anemia and proven vilamin B-12 deficiency. A* an artificial pick-me-up it is worthless. Giving it to yourself at intervals determined by you is poor judgement. Broken needles, infections and allergic reactions arc possible dangers that far outweigh t h e psychological benefits you seem to derive. opinions. CORPIO (Oct. 24 to Nov. 22) Dynamic thought and action hould be yours this day. Some F your ideas will be cnstvuc- ive, others not Feasible.

Pass 6V Opening lead - nine of diamonds. I like this story told by the Dutch expert, Herman Filarski He was playing in a tournamen in Holland many years ago when this hand came up. Filarski bid a diamond and his partner drove the hand tc six hearts, which was certainlj a reasonable contract. West led the nine of diamonds and South had to choose how o play the slam. After a brief uddle he decided not to finesse ne diamond and went up with ne ace. He thought the nine night be a'singleton, in wliif-h jase. if he [messed, East \vmild ake the king and return a diamond lo quickly put the hand .own one. Re also fell sure the finesse couldn't win, for West .was not he type of player who would cad from a king against a blam, and, even more so, since Vest had no way of knowning vhether dummy -or declarer lad the ace. South's judgment was vindicated in dramatic style when, he ace caught the king. Declarer then led a trump and vent up with the ace after East had followed low. This rejection of the trump finesse was simply a matter of self-preservation. There was too much danger of West's having the king, in which case a diamond return would sink the contract. Again South was rewarded when the nee caught the king, and the outcome was that declarer -- after playing two tricks and nabbing two single- lon kings Â· was able to claim the rest of the tricks. was of course his partner's per- Filarski pleased by formance -- spearing two kings in a slam -- but the opponents viewed the feat with great suspicion.
