Whenever I do I find that my mouth burns as it I had scalded it with hot tea. Have you ever heard of this reaction? Mr. T.M., Okla. Dear Mr. M.: Your letter arrived at the same time that 1 received report about this problem. Dr. Ailan L Abramson, working at the Naval Hospital n Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, stated, "If denture cleanser powders are used as directed they present no apparent medical hazard. However if accidentally ingested (swallowed) they can cause serious complications. "And efforts now should be made to prevent their potentia misuse, preferably by keeping them in a safe place and pack aging those that are highly al kaline in special protective con tainers." SEVERE BURNS The potential danger of somi denture po\yder cleansers cam to light when a 2-year-old chili was brought to the hospital wit! severe burns around the moul and throat after having swal lowed a denture powder. When this case was reports similar cases came to light o accidental poisoning and injur to the tissues of the mouth, th throat, the esopha'gus and th stomach. So markedly alkalin are some of these denture clea ners that damage to sensitiv tissues can be as great as thos caused by swallowing oven cleaner. lye o Dr. Blair Fearon, at the Hos- ital for Sick Children in Toron- Canada, has concerned him- elf about this' problems too. said, "Actually, what 'orries me most are the den- ure cleansers that come in aste form. Even an adult could Jck up one.of these and mis- ikenly use it in place of toothpaste." Dr. Abramson said that "des- lite the potential danger of the lighly alkaline Â· powders we lave been totally unsuccessful o far in getting the govern- in e n t ' s Consumer Product afety Division to pay attention o our warning." THREAT TO CHILD He adds, "The very presence jf these agents in a home constitutes a threat, the ma'gnituda of which depends only on the age and ingenuity of the child." It is imperative, therefore, hat you and all other denture ivearers realize that most cleansers are severely caustic when in contact with the delicate tissues of the mouth and throat. B e . s u r e : t o rinse your dentures thoroughly, to be'cer- tain that no powder, paste or solution makes contact with" your mouth. All of these products must ba k e p t ' away from the prying hands of curious children.

B u t in such cases there are nearly alwayi clues to lead declarer out o the realm of guesswork and into the sphere of logical reasoning The methods employed in this field are certainly not a slate secret. Basically, what declarer does is to assemble all the nforinatioh he can about thÂ» defenders' hands before com- nitting himself to the crucial guess. Take this deal where declarer's only problem is which way to take the . two-way heart 'inesse. He wins the-'club lead with the ace. draws three rounds of trumps, cashes the A-K-Q of diamonds,, and exits with a club. If West winds up on lead with :he jack, the contest is over Because he is forced to return a heart and relieve declarer of :he guess in that suit. So let's assume that East wins the club with the king and continues with the ten. South ruffs and can no longer evade the crucial question of which way to take the heart finesse. All the same, his methods have paid off. West has shown up with precisely three.spades, two diamonds and two clubs -neither more or less -- and hence must have started with exactly six hearts. : .Cross checking this, East has shown up with precisely one spacle, five dia-monds and six clubs -- and hence must hava started with a singleton heart. Accordingly, South cashes lhÂ« king of hearts, forcing East to follow suit with his only heart, and takes a heart finessa through West in the absolute assurance that the finesse will succeed. : PONYTA1L Avg. solution time: 23 min. 21 30 33 38 2i 34 26 24 27 [40 SO 32 45- 28 29 47 "Let's go iri and'browse around,..- there's always some cute guys in there!"
