Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 1 1, Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I read your column wherever I may be and enjoy it very much I am an over-fhe-road live stock truck driver and have worked at hard manual labor from the age of 16. I'm now 82. I still drive a truck and break horses to ride in my leisure time. I'm bothered very much with my fingers going to sleep Daytime they aren't as bad, but at night they get very stiff regardless of how I lie. 1 would appreciate it very much if you could tell me ot any way I could get relief as I have seen several good doctors, and they have been unable to help me Recently, 1 read an article of yours, about the hands falling asleep, and it described my case very well I have been a patient in three different veterans hospitals Dear Reader You are remarkable. At age 82 you are still a very active man and your biggest complaint is numbness in your hands I really do wish I could help you It is almost impossible to tell why a person has these svmptoms without a careful examination. Usually these problems are caused by pressure on the nerves or circulation to the arms The pressure can be from muscles or tendons, an extra rib. or even trom arthritic change in the neck. To define whether it is pressure on nerves or blood vessels requires some special tests There is the possibility that your hand stilfness is a manilestation of some arthritic changes. This wouldn't be unusual About the only thing I can suggest to you is to try to keep your handb warm At night you might wear some gloves to bed and see if that helps to keep them from getting stiff I would hope, though, that the next time you have the opportunity that you would have an examination by a neurologist or an orthopedic specialist, and possibly by a cardiologist Should you be in the V.A. hospital again, ask for consultation with these specialists. Dear Dr. Lamb I read your article on duodenal ulcers. I have been on a strict ulcer diet for seven months. It would be easier to stick to the diet if it would be explained what reaction drinking colas has on an ulcer lor on the Even after seven months I have cravings lor a cola Could you please explain? Dear Reader The problem is caffeine. It is a drug, and one of its actions is to stimulate the stomach to produce a great deal more acid pepsin juice It is the acid pepsin juice that leads to the formation of ulcers, and the amount must be controlled by medication or neutralized by alkalizing medicines. Calteme is found in colas, cottee. tea and chocolate. All of these should be forbidden to anyone who has an ulcer or has ever had an ulcer or has hyperacidity problems. Some people can tolerate th'e decaffeinated products, but this has to be evaluated on an individual basis. The flavor oils are irritating to the digestive system of some people. If you would like some more information on ulcers you may want to write for the booklet I have prepared on this subject. Send 50 cents to in care of this newspaper, P.O.

South Wrsl North East 1 Pass 1 Pass 2 NT Pass 3 Pass :j NT Pass Pass Pass Opening lead. Ten of A West came up with a su- perior defensive effort that left declarer with no play for his contract, and in the pro- cess destroyed the old bridge cliche, second hand low. The bidding was fairly straightforward. North might have passed his partner's two no trump rebid, but he felt that his good five-card suit offered play for game oppo- site a balanced 19-20 points, especially if South should happen to hold three hearts, or an honor in the suit. West led the ten of spades, and declarer tried for an extra trick in that suit by putting in dummy's jack, hoping West had led away from the queen. East covered and declarer won with the king Declarer was certain of seven tricks, since the club suit would produce two tricks by force. The most likely place to find the two tricks needed to fulfill the contract was in the heart suit, so de- clarer led a low heart to- wards dummy. West was equal to the occasion he played his king! Since it would not help to win the ace, declarer allowed the king to hold the trick. He won the spade continuation with the ace and led another heart. When West played low, declarer elected to gamble that West held both heart honors and finessed the ten. East won the queen, and de- clarer was eventually held to six tricks. Note that declarer must make his contract if West follows with a low heart when that suit is first led. Declarer inserts dummy's ten, and if East wins the queen, declarer can bring in the rest of the suit with a second finesse for West's king. Best defense is for East to allow the ten of hearts to win, thereby limiting declarer to two heart tricks. But the ex- tra entry allows declarer to make his contract by using the two heart entries to take two club finesses Declarer will score three club tricks and two tricks in each of the other suits, for nine tricks.
