Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 8, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETH3RIDCE HERALD August 1973 HIUIUUBHHBMBMMNHBMMHI Ask Andy Quicksand danger Andy sends a complete 20- volume set the Merit SU- dents Encyclopedia to Susan age of High No. for her question How does a quicksand draw a person This is a very serious sub- ject because every usu- ally during the outdoor summer a number of persons manage to step or fall into treacherous quicksands. Luck- most of the victims are res- cued in time. And most of them insist aside from rdl the other the soggy quick sand actually tried to drag them down to destruc- tion. Some quicksands do indeed exert a downward pull and oth- ers do not. All of them are mix- tures of sand and too thick for swimming and too thin to support the weight of a per- son's body. The soggy soup may range from a few feet to 30 feet deep. It is held inside an underground hollow- ed in dense bedrock below the surface layer of sand. The wat- er cannot seep or drain through the floor or the walls of the impervious bedrock. A treacherous quicksand that drags down its victims is locat- ed near a plentiful supply of moving water. It may be on an ocean where the tide washed over it twice every day. At high the basin of soupy sand may be submerged. As the tide goes the ocean's enormous power drags the high water on the beach Fun with figures By J. A. H. HUNTER said putting a couple of small cartons on the table. got two Susan nodded. fine.

This in- cludes some or all the water trapped in the quicksand bas- in. Woe betide the victim who steps into this booby trap when the tide is going out. The drag 'of tidal water draws him down deeper into the soggy sand. At low this treacherous Dock- et may be drained dry to al- most dry. Or it may be a calm mixture of sand and soft enough to sink in but with no power to draw its victims down. Other soupy basins also form beside rivers and lakes. If the shore is they are soggy mixtures of fine sand and wat- like the quicksands on beaches. If the river or lake shore is ordinary the bas- ins bold swampy mixtures of mud and water. Unless a vic- tim knows how to save him- his body sinks down in any of these booby traps. The treacherous ones are near rivers with swift or strong currents. This moving water tends to percolate through its banks. 'Where there is a pocket of it sloshes through the soupy basin exerting the strength of ttie current as it goes. The dragging force of moving water also pulls at an unlucky person who steps into tht booby trap. The quicksands on popular beaches are krown and marked with danger signs. Read them and beware. When exploring strange beaches off the beaten test the sand ahead with sticks and stones. If a stone sinks or a stick prodes deep into soggy turn back to safer ground. When an unlurky person steps into a soupy he feels tempted to struggle fran- tically to save himself. How- wildly beating arms and legs only make him sink faster. The trick is to summon enough courage to be calm. Then slow- very slowly inch around to he flat on the back with legs apart and arms outstretched. In this motionless the victim can float on top until rescued. If rescue seems unlike- it is possible to roll inch by inch toward solid ground. is risky.

North's hand suddenly began to look very good. He cue-bid three hearts to show his power and ask South for clarification of his holding. Despite the fact that South did nothing to en- courage him North opted for a spade hoping that his diamonds would pro- vide enough discards for South's losers. West led the king of and when dummy came down chances were not very bright. Hazen worked out if West held precisely three diamonds and the ten of spades with one other tc could make the slam. he won the ace of hearts and played his three top diamonds. The third dia- mond cooked East's goose. If he ruffed declarer would overruff and lead a trump to the felling the queen. A fourth diamond would be and declarer would discard his losing heart as West ruffed with the king of spades for the only trick for the defense. East ruffed with the queen of declarer discarding his losing heart. West played a heart and de- clarer ruffed. As West was marked with the king of spades for his opening it was now an easy matter to finesse against West's king-ten of spades to land the slam. Dear Dr. Lamb I would like to know more about the megavitamm therapy. Dear Reader So would This is one of those areas in which there are many opinions and not very many well sub- stantiated facts Large or huge doses of vita- mins have been recommended to treat some medical prob- including psychiatric pro- blems such as schizophrenia. Some advocates of this type of therapy claim remarkable re- sults. Their adversaries claim they have not done well-con- trolled studies that will permit any valid conclusions. The point is that some people with medi- cal including mani- fesitations of have spontaneous remissions or improve without any medica- tion. To prove the value of any whether it's a vita- min pill or something it has to be proved that it is more effective than a placebo j sugar pill or even an empty j gelatin This gets back to planning your research study in advance and planning it in such a way so that legitimate conclusions can be made. I'm sorry to say that I don't know of any such good study in ref- erence to msgavitamins at this time which will permit any de- finite conclusions. I would say that it is an area worthy of further and at the same time would caution the general public that huge doses of vitamins taken i on their own might actually produce some undesirable ef- even with the water sol- uble vitamins that we normally consider innocuous when taken in doses considerably larger than we usually think of as a daily requirement. Of the fat soluble A and D in are known to cause toxic reactions if they are taken in even moderately ex- cessive doses over a prolonged period of time. Dear Dr. Lamb Could you help me with my The part of my legs below my knees are too skinny. I have heard shat certain exercises could build muscles in your legs and make them larger. Dear Reader In most peo- the proper type of exercise will increase the size of a mus- cle or muscle group. The prin- ciple is to increase the weight which the muscle must or the strength of the muscular contraction. This works equal- ly well for men and women. When a muscle is contracted strongly it causes the formation of a chemical called creatwe. This substance stimulates the muscle fibers to grow so the muscles gain strength and are able to contract even more or to hit a greater weight. So it that the larger or stronger a muscle the more able it is to grow. You are probably talking about the muscle group com- monly called the calf muscles. A simple exercise to help build them is simply to stand flat-fooL- then rise up. balancing on your and then let your heels sink back to the floor na- turaly. By repeating this exer- cise over and over it will gra- dually increase the strength of the calf muscles. When they are strong you can balance by placing the tips of the fing- ers against the wall or a door- jamb and simply rise up on the toes of one foot at a time. This will literally double the weight load on the calf muscle. This simple exercise will help you develop the size of these mus- if you do it consistently.
