Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 10-THE LETHMIDQI HIMLO-TiMwity, April 2, 1174 Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Umb I would like your opinion on a woman who has to have a hysterectomy for health reasons. So many of my friends say a woman who has had one isn't any good sexually. Would you please comment on this? It would put many of these women's minds at ease Also, is the woman any different.when she has the operation'' Are other women better partners who have not had the operation? Also, do men prefer women who have not had one9 Dear Reader I get a lot of letters asking-about this. The truth is the uterus has almost nothing to do with sexual activity It is connected to the top end of the birth canal and provides no important feeling for the woman It has no effects at all on the man. Most men wouldn't even know a woman had had such an operation So the answer to the rest of your questions should be obvious Women are just as good a partner, or even better, after surgery Why better9 Since they no longer need fear pregnancy, they often are more relaxed For the same reason a man, if he knew, might prefer a woman who didn't have a uterus. Dear Dr. Lamb I've just had surgery on my neck for hardening of the arteries The blood could barely drip through Can you help me with my diet so this won't recur9 Is it all diet that causes hardening of the arteries9 It is a very expensive operation. I had two on the neck and chest, so no more Dear Reader The same diet principles apply to preventing fatty deposits in the arteries in the neck as those for the brain and heart The disease throughout the body is the same For additional information you may want to read the booklet on balanced diet that I have prepared.

In the animal world, honest- to-goodness flying calls for flappable wings Most of the birds qualify with wings that are specially adapted fore- limbs Only one of the four- legged mammals is. a true flier He is the bat Squirrels and several other mammals are able to swoop through the air But since'they have no flappable wings, let's not expect them to fly around like. the birds and the bats Actually, the so-called flying squirrel' is an expert parachutist He measures about 12 inches long, plus a flat furry 4-inch tail. However, he weighs only a few ounces, for most of his builk is soft featherweight fur chocolate brown on top and creamy white below Along his sides, he has flaps of fur- covered skin that extend down his legs to his wrists and ankies. When his four legs are 'spread out sideways, he becomes a furry little carpet a flying carpet This is just what happens when he takes to the air He begins his flight by scampering up to his launching pad, which is at the top of a tall tree Then out he leaps, with legs spread wide, nose in front and tail behind. His light flat body acts like a parachute as down he glides, using his tail as a rudder His destination is at the base of another tall tree, where he lands with a plonk. As a rule, he scampers straight up to the top and parachutes down to another and perhaps another tree. It's too bad that we seldom see him perform But the flying squirrel lives in the wild woods and spends the day fast asleep a ball of fur hidden in the tree tops. After sundown he comes forth for food and fun. Soon he is joined by a group of friends and relatives While searching for slacks, they often play follow-the-leader. One furry fellow launches himself from a treetop, followed by another and another. The leader lands at the base of another tree. As he scampers up the trunk, the following parachutists land plop, plop, plop. This merry game goes on and on through the woods usually until the frisky little acrobats come upon a source of supplies As squirrels, they are members of the large rodent clan and their rodent type teeth need tough foods to gnaw Flying squirrels eat certain buds, leaves and a few insects But you can be sure that they forget all about their fascinating gliding games when they come upon a tree full of nice crunchy, chewable nuts Our own native flying squirrels are at home in the woods through much of North America, from the Southland to Alaska Though not true fliers with genuine wings, they are true squirrels As members of the squirrel family Sciuridae, their cou- sins include the bushy-tailed tree squirrels and frisky little chipmunks, the social prairie dogs and the fat lazy woodchucks Other flying squirrels are at home 'in Sweden and Siberia, China and Japan and a pigmy flying squirrel frolics through the jungles of Borneo Fun with figures By J.
