A condition known as "phimo- s" occasionally occurs in uri- circumciscd males. When this exists, the u n c u t foreskin cannot be pushed back easily for proper cleaning. Many men j;o through their lives without the heed for circumcision. Their so.x life and their capacity to have children arc in no way affected. There should be no hard and fast rule that all male babies should be circumcised. However, it is generally accepted that this simple procedure is if value. Many adult males find thai ·cumcision would be helpfu them if the hygiene of the nis becomes difficult. Circumcision is not a reli ous ritual. In some aborigina ibes. where neither the whee jr the hammer is yet in use circumcision is part of a ritual of puberty. An interesting sidelight of circumcision is the fact that it has been thought that the reason why Jewish women rarely develop cancer of the cervix OP the uterus is t h a t Jewish males are always circumcised. This relationship has not been definitely verified scientifically. Another strange phenomenon s t h a t cancer of Ihe penis occurs less frequently in cir- umciscd males. I believe t h a t most physicians onsidcr it advantageous lo cir- umcise a child in infancy.

Only 12 igh-card points are missing fter East produces the king diamonds at trick one, and Vest must have them. Accordingly, declarer plays a lub from dummy at trick three nd finesses the jack, knowing ill well that the finesse will ose. West wins and returns a iamond to the jack, whereupon outh cashes the A-K-10 of clubs nd quoen of diamonds. On the fourth diamond, West -- now down to six cards -must discard a spade or a heart. Le't's say he discards a spade, in which case dummy ilso discards a spade. South thereupon plays the ace and ·mother spade. West wins and is forced to lead a heart from the K-Q-4. If he leads the king, South has an easy time making a second heart trick, so let's assume he plays the four instead.
