Dear Mr. G.: This question was specifically f u t to Dr. Herbert S. Ktipper- man, specialist in endocrinology at the New York University Medical Center. He said. "No. Menopause re- ers to the cessation of the menses. The male climacteric 'change of life) 1 , however, denotes that stage in a man's life when goriadal (testes function liminishes, eventually resulting n complete cessation. "It's not as specific and defi : litive as what we 1 see in the female, although the onset maybe precipitous, occurring over three.or four months. CHANGE OF LIFE "Men between the ages of 50 and' SO may develop these changes." When the male change of life sets in, it is possible to study Jonadal activity by measuring She steroid level -in the blood. Occasionally, it is possible to replace hormones - when they are found to be markedly deficient. In general, there is scientific agreement that changes in body function do occur in the male, which can be classed as a male "Change of live." Time and age are responsible tor changes in gonadal function and in changes in every other organ of the body. My husband has chilosis. No one seems to know what this means. Could the doctor be trying to avoid telling us that this is cancerous? Mrs. A.H.V., Mains Dear Mrs. V.: Doctors do not play games ith patients and pretend that cancerous or dangerous conditions do not exist, ' Sometimes, particular patients are unable to accept the seriousness of their condition and physicians., therefore, enlist another member of Ilia family in the handling of a difficult emotional problem. LIP DISORDER Your doctor was n o t hiding anything when he said, your . husband had cheilosis. This difference in spelling may account for the reason why you haven't been able to find it in a medical dictionary. Cheilosis is a disorder of the lips and the angle of the mouth, with small cracks and scaling. Only occasionally is a vitamin B deficiency the cause. Ill Fit- ling dentures in adults with drooling at the sides of t h e mouth, may account for cracks and fissures. These sometimes become infected with bacteria and funguses.

Pass 4 NT Pass 64 Opening lead -- king of hearts. Leon Sapire of Johannesburg has l o n g been one of the world's foremost advocates of asking bids. Publisher of South Africa's Bridge Bulletin, he has persistently been heating the drums for wider use of these bids -- which are virtually un- fieard of 'in most bridge circles. Asking bids were introduced by Ely Culberlson back in the 30's, but they never caught fire because of their alleged complexity. They were basically aimed at greater accuracy in slam bidding, the purpose being to pinpoint partner's values in a particular suit and so remove some of the guesswork from the game. Consider this deal where North has a wide choice of bids he can make over two hearts. There might be a slam opposite even a minimum opening bid, and there might conceivably he only a part score with South holding a super-sound opening bid but the wrong hand. fn order to discover partner's diamond holding, North makes an asking'bid of fow diamonds. (Three diamonds would he a normal forcing bid; consequently the unnecessary jump to four diamonds,is an asking bid which at the same time announces good spade support.) Four notrump is a conventional response t h a t indicates two a^ces and second-round control of diamonds in the form of either the king or a singleton. North, not being a mouse, goes to six spades after this highly favorable response, and South easily makes the slam by establishing dummy's diamonds. Not a bad result, considering that North-South have only 19 high-card points! Score one for asking bids, without which a slam could not be reached with normal bidding methods. At the same time, score one for Leon' Sapire, whose tom-toms have been sounding a muffled roar in the wilderness for many years.
