Mrs. S.R., Mo. Dear Mn. R.: When varicose veins are present it means that changes and weakness ot Ihe muscular walls of the veins have already occurred. Rarely are Ihesc changes reversible. Sometimes, when an u n u s u a l reason for varicose veins is found and removed, there may be some improvement. Exercises cannot change the physical structure of the veins themselves. In some form, exercise can be beneficial to everyone. It is accepted lhal exercise stimulates the blood circulation and may therefore prevent the moderate stagnation ot blood that occurs in some cases of varicoslty. The upright position of mai imposes a great burden on the veins of the legs. The additlona pull of gravity further inter eres with the proper func ioning of the tiny valves in the veins. Exercise is not a substitute for the beneficial treatment, now in use .against the fatigu and cramps associated with lei varicosity. Support stockings, elevatior T the legs at frequent intervals luring the day, even for a'few ninulcs at a time, will h e : l p he return flow of blood through he veins. Prolonged periods of .landing or sitting, or driving n an automobile should be avoided. Tight girdles also nlerfere with blood circulation. There are now many ways o determine if the superficial veins or the deep veins jara ifteclcd. Each case must-be studied individually to determine blood flow efficiency. With these findings the doe- tor, in collaboration with ,.the surgeon, can decide on the best form of treatment. Sometimes, local injection of small varicositles are very Affective, Positional exercises are not curative, but are used in oilier forms of treatment.; When it is established lhat deep or superficial varicjtee veins are causing symptoms that are too distressing, surgery is advised. Unfortunately, many people delay the operation because they feel this method is "loo radical." Tt should be emphasized lhat surgery, performed before complications occur, must be considered "conservative" treatment rather than "radical."

You are declarer wilh the West hand at Six Clubs and North leads the jack of spades, which you win with the king. You return a club. S o u t h following low. Would you play the ten or the queen at this point? 4AK873 VAKQ Â· 63 * AQ109876 J102 * AKQJ *2 2. You are declarer wilh Ihe West hand at Seven Hearts and hold the K-J-0-8-6-5 o ftrumps you play the five to the ace North produces the deuce and South the three, and when you play Ihe ten South produces the four. Do you play the king or do you finesse? 1. Either play may fail or succeed, depending on Ihe di: Iribution, so, in choosing which card lo finesse, the besl thing lo do is play according to percentages. In attempting to discover the proper percentage play, you start by eliminating from the reckoning those hands where your play makes no difference Thus all those hands where N o r t h has the K-J-x. or x-j or x, or K-x-x, or J-x-x, a n d so on are disregarded. The out come is the same in all theft ~ases, whatever you do. The hands meriling attention are those where South has -K-x- x, J x-x, J-x-x-x, or K-x-x-x?he first two may be bypassed jecause South is as likely to hold one as the other, and.'ths en will gain exactly as often as the queen. The third case is also ignored because you lose two tracks whether you play the teij- OE .he queen. It is the fourth case that nakes the queen the better play [lian Ihe len. This is because you lose only one Irick ; by playing the queen, but J,wo tricks by playing the ten. ."And so, Ihe queen is the correct,per. centage play. 2. In the absence of qlues indicating otherwise, you should play the king. South will' be dealt x-x in 20.35 deals ouÂ£ o[ 100. and Q-x-x in 18.65 deals out of 100. I tis therefore better to go up with Ihe king- -because that is the winning'play in the long r u n . .,, However, the advantage of playing for the drop is so slight that almost any clue indicating that North is somewhat more likely to have a singleton than a doubleton should be enough to induce you to finesse. ^ Crossword By Eugene Sheffer ACROSS 1 Vehicle 4 Amazon estuary 8 Droops 12 Money ot account 13 Sour H Lake -15 Noisy demonstration 17 Be concerned 18 Cord 19 Blunts 20 Uttered 22 Fly 24 Bird shelter Â· 25 House finches 29 Land measure 30 Chairman's mallet 31 Chinese leader 32 It flows in Texas; . 34 Blockhead 35 Level 1 36 Hindu garments 37 Garden tool 40 Neglect 41 Faucets 42 Purple willow 46 French river 47 Malayan nervous malady 48 Feminine name 49 Entreaty 50 Chaste 51 Letter DOWN 1 Male swan 2 Macaw 3 Voted 4 Actor John 5 Pain 6 -- Grande 7 Fuss 8 Safe 9 Russian sea 10 Young lass 11 Perceives 16 Be fond oE Avg. solution time: 25 min.
