AHKAN1A* . tO, 1974 ' \mwmwwwwimmtHiwwm It seems as if so many young eople I know complain that ley have a "slipped disc" in he back. Is this a new-fangled erm for the old-fashioned lumbago?" Mrs. H.E.C., R.I. Dear Mrs. C.: It is true that "slipped disc" s referred to rather casually y many people who fancy they ave the condition. Fortunately for those who link they have, this complex ondition does not exist as fre- uently as they suppose. There are 33 bones, or verte- rae, that run from the top of le neck to the tail bone, or oceyx. Between each of the crtebrae there is a solid, but lastic. tissue known as a disc." These act as protective hock absorbers .that cushion ressure or injury to the spine. The discs also protect bony dges from rubbing against ach other during .the many omplex rotational movements f the body. Occasionally, as a result of njury, disease or a bony deformity. a disc may protrude or "slip") and cause severe lain. Tlie pain may be at the iite of the.slipped disc or may 'adiate to a distant part of the lody. When the condition is suspec- ed by the physician, complex X-ray studies known as myelo- rams can pinpoint the exacl area of the slipped disc. Because of compression of th* nerves leading from the spine, neurological examination is always combined with orthopedic (bone) consultation. . · Not all of these hernialed (ruptured) discs need surgery. Sometimes, with bed rest and .raclion, the intense pain can be minimized. There are also a number of new methods being tried for the non-surgical treatment of slipped discs. . Low back pain can be caused by many disorders. Sacroiliae disturbances, sciatica, and lum- sago are a few, The "old-fash, loried lumbago" refers to a constant, dull pain which almost always is due to some muscular disturbance in the lower back. Because there are so many variations of low back is not wise to have active massage of the lower bacl? before the exact diagnosis is established, Very often massage! and manipulation are undoubtedly valuable. However, within the framework of their value lies the possible danger that certain undiagnosed conditions may be aggravated and complicated by too vigorous manipulation. : . Speaking of your health...Th« handicapped are never a "handicap* or burden .to employers who are wise enough to give them the opportunity to work. iiininiiiniiH^^ B.

The uppercut is. undoubtedly one of the most satisfying plays available to the defense - - b u t the situation where it can be successfully applied does-· not necessarily burst upon the .cene ready-made.- - It · -must ometimes 'be rather carefully concocted, .so that' the 1 -death blow can he dealt at just the right moment. Here is a case w h e r e the defense had to be'letter-perfect :o stop declarer from making "our hearts. Looking at all loiir IIBIBWiniR hands, it would seem that South should lose only two spades and a heart, but, in f a c t . - h e lost four tricks and could do" nothing t o avoid i t . . . . . West led a spade to East's king. East knew from the lead of the deuce that West had four spades and declarer two," so h^ cashed the ace also! He :then made the unorthodox play of another spade to dummy's Q-9, realizing that his partner's 10-8 would be trapped in tha process · It was this play that laid South' ' l o w - a n d caused htm" · to go down one. He discarded a chib'and returned a trump from' dummw, finessing the jack. West'took the queen and led a fourth round of spades to dummy's queen. When East ri]ffe.d, . . w i t h 'the king, .South overruffed with the ace but. had to Jose still another trump trick to the nine to go down one. The . unpercut was more than he could stand. Jt. is. .interesting to note that to defeat the contract West had to lead. a . spade, E a s t had to play three r o u n d s of spades, and W e s t had to pursue East's indicated method of defense · by later playing a fourth round of spades. · · There-are-very f e w hands in bridpe that require such absolute precision. -They are therefore all the more remarkabla when -they do occur' a n d th» players rise gallantly to In* occasion.
