NorthwMt Arkantat TIMES, Won., Sept. 16, 1974 rAYETTIVILU, AHKÂ»NÂ»Â»1 The use and abuse of acu- iuncture has reached epidemic evels in the United States. When interest In acupuncture was revived in this country ifter years of disregard, it pread rapidly to the laity and o physicians. Favorable reports from China nd documented cases by relia- le American experts made it mpcrative that a complete 'eview of the history and the :oncept of acupuncture be undertaken. The Federal government and he National Institutes of Health established study committees to e v a l u a t e acupuncture tho- Â·oughly and objectively. Dr. John J. Bonica, of the University of Washington, is one of America's authorities on he subject of pain. As chairman of the United States overnment Study Committee on Acupuncture, he submitted a report based on his own personal observations during a scientific trip through China. His committee has also extensively reviewed the literature and the reports from research groups at the Institutes of Health. In n recent report in the Journal of the American Medical Association, Dr. Bonica ashed out vigorously at unscrupulous persons exploiting :he public's interest in acupunc- ure through the operation of treatment centers. The conclusions he draws are: 1. The misuse of acupuncture to try to cure ' disease is an mportant health problem. 2. The widespread use nf acupuncture to try to cure disease is unwarranted at the present lime. Dr. Bonica does say that there is sufficient evidence to suggest that acupuncture therapy may gain a place in American medicine. It does relieve pain and other symptoms in some patients. However, Dr. Bonica charges that in the United States "many unscrupulous persons are exploiting the public's interest by the way they operate, their, acupuncture centers or institutes." One of the dangers of acupuncture is that some serious treatable diseases are overlooked because of unnecessary delay. ' The potential value of acupuncture will be brought to light by thorough scientific studies. Until then, patients must thrive on the fears and ills of man. !i!i!iii!iniiiiiiiiiiniiniiiiniiimi!niiiiiiÂ»!Hiiiiniiin!iiiiiin^ B.

The element of luck is substantially reduced in duplicate bridge, where the same deal is played at more than one table, but it is not entirely eliminated. Misbidding is not always punished, because sometimes the cards are .so placed for declarer that a relatively poor contract comes marching home. Consider this deal from the 1969 world championship match between the United States and Italy. The bidding went as frown when Ranee and Lazard icld the North South cards for le U.S. team. Six clubs was certainly an imbitious undertaking on the hand and would normally go down more often than not. But L a z a r d made the slam by guessing the trump position correctly and also finding thÂ« diamonds divided favorably. He won the spade lead with the ace, played the jack of clubs and finessed. The fines* succeeding, Lazard had to decide whether West was more likely to have started with tha K-B-4 of clubs and East the 10-2. or whether West had the Kand East the 10-8-2. In the former case, continuing with the queen of clubs at trick three would be t h e winning play; in the latter case, a low club lead was necessary.' Lazard guesed right - as he usually does - when he led the queen, pinning West's king and East's ten in one fell swoop. Thereafter, he had no difficulty making the slam, scoring 1,370 points. The American team had a further shot of luck on the deal when the Italian South at t h e other table got to three nolrump and found a way to go clown one. So the U.S. gained. 1,470 points on this one hand, but tho Italians won the championship anyway.
