Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 9, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta J.S THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD 1973 Ask Andy Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Nate age of Salt Lake for his Mow hot and cold does it get in the The deserts on Mars are larger and colder but our great Sahara gets a great deal hotter. When the midsummer sun beats down on its sandy the temperature may soar to 130 degrees Fahrenheit. During the summer the desert temperature often drops swiftly. In frost comes to large areas in the Sahara and some of its mountain peaks are capped with snow. The great Sahara is the big- the but not quite the coldest desert on the earth. It sprawls over three million square miles which is al- most as big as Canada. One would expect to find a variety of scenery in such an enormous with a variety of temp- eratures. Some parts of the great des- ert are covered with parched sandy dunes. Other geograph- ical features include barren hills and rocky moun- tain ranges and vast stretches of loose gravel. This whole re- gion of North Africa is an arid disert because the trade winds that blow across it bring few clouds and little mois- ture. the big blue sky above it is usually clear and the air is drier-than-dry. This allows the summer sun to beat down with blaring heat. Then the sandy surface gets much hot- ter than the air above it. The mid-day temperatures often reach 120 and sometimes 130 degrees Fahrenheit. The record is held by a place called Azizia in the Lybian which is one of the Sahara's hot spots. One the official tempera- ture there soared to 136.4 de- grees in the shade. Some people claim that Cali- fornia's Death Valley gets to be the hottest spot on earth. There the record for July 1913 was 134 degrees F. This was tops for North but more than two degrees cooler than the Sahara's known record. Death Valley's nor- mal temperatures often reach 125 which is hotter than many summer days in the Sahara. The same dear blue skies that bring down heat from the blazing sun also let the earth's heat escape during the night. After a seething day of 120 de- temperatures in the Sa- hara often plummet down to 70 degrees or lower. People who live there must prepare for the sudden changes. The desert ani- mals must be adjusted to the sharp contrasts of day and night temperature. The wide Sahara straddles the Tropic of where winters tend to be mild. But cold dry winds often bring frosty temperatures of 30 de- grees to some of the low lying regions. Things are colder on the desert feet above sea level. The highest peaks are to feet and sometimes they are cover- ed with winter snows for at a time. x Only parts of the great desert are desolate Even these are crossed by caravan routes and along the way there are towns where the travelers pause to rest and t.'ade. And here and there throughout the great desert there are where pockets of ground water nourish green spots of thriving vegetation. Here the plants give off moisture and tend to lessen both the heat and the cold. Questions asked by cuildren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask P.O. Box 765. Hnnticgton California 9264S.

Medicine doesn't cause tremors BROKEN PELVIS FORT MACLEOD A fall while working on a house con- struction job in the Riverview residential area this past week resulted in painful injuries to Henry Lemire. He was taken to Fort Macleod hospital where it was found he suffered a broken and it is currently ex- pected he will be in hospital for a few weeks. With him at the time of the accident were his Rick and son-in- Marcus Heck. They were assisting en the building pro- ject. Dear Dr. Lamb I am 75 years of age and retired a year ago. My weight varlas between 135 and am 6-inch- es in height. Don't drink or smoke. For some years I weighed ISO and suffered high blood pres- sure. Now this appears to be un- der although my doctor has me taking a pill every oth- er day. Preventive medication perhaps. Have always been an active both large and small bore and and still en- joy these as well as fishing. I have given up hunt- ing and now have a strong av- ersion to killing. I get my sport from trying to clay And punching holes in paper targets. Two years my doctor discovered that I have a ma- lignancy of the prostrate and put me on some sort of a I have to take these the rest of my life. Do these pills the sure pills I have have any insidious side effects. I am somewhat worried about this possibility because during the past year I have a tremor of fingers and along with what I would say is a lack of control of my thumbs. This difficulty manifests itself especially as I attempt to arate pages of books or maga- zines My doctor of many tarA in whom I have full confi- told me this tremor con- dition is normal in many per- isons of my age. He evidently feels that the condition cannot be helped. Can you give me any usggestions as to what might be done to help this shaky There must be something. Have always been proud of my steady nerves and good Co- so am really shook up by this development. you can easily imagine what it's doing to my rifle If you can give me any I would surely appreciate it. Dear Reader Your tremor is not caused by your medicine. As your doctor has told this commonly occurs in indi- viduals as they get older. Some people have njare trouble with this than others. Often it is as- sociated with or fatty blockage of the wniclr- increases as people get older in our society. This is par- ticularly true if one has had a problem of high blood pressure. It sesms to me that you've done rather well since you have reduced your which in elong with your doctor's has resulted in decreas- ing your blood pressure which is the most important thing that could be done. The hormone pill has no effect whatever on your tremor. It is a female hormone used to neu- tralize male hormone. This is a a common treatment for indi- viduals with malignancy of the prostrate and is a very useful approach to the problem in many cases. I I would think that your trem- ior should emphasize the need i for you to eliminate any excess amount of body fat that you might even though I know you've already lost some and particular attention to dietary management which I've discussed often in my col- umn for the prevention of ath- or fatty blockage of the arteries. You are to be congratulated on maintaining your interest and staying active. gencl your questions to Dr. in care of this news- P.O. Box Radio City New N.Y. 10019.

North had an even more valid reason to complain about his partner's failure to take precautionary measures against the bad break. With 19 points in prime South's hand is too good for a one no trump opening bid. He opened one club after his partner showed at least 6 points with his then decided to bid game at no trump. West led the queen of and declarer saw no problem in the hand. He won the first trick in dummy and led the queen of clubs. East played as did declarer. West discarded the diamond and declarer suddenly realized he was in trouble. He continued with a low and East's ten forced the ace. Declarer tried the nine of but East was careful to let that win the trick. Declarer could score only three club and with five tricks in the other suits that brought his total to eight. South bemoaned his fate. He pointed out that there was less than a 10 per cent chance of a 4-0 and felt that he had been handed a cruel blow by fate. North agreed with his partner's mathematics while quarreling with his conclu- sion. He pointed out that South should have made his contract in spite of the un- fortunate club division. As South had five tricks in the other he needed only four club tricks for his contract. he should have won the opening heart Jead in his hand and led a low club toward dum- my. If West has all four miss- ing he must play low and dummy's queen wins. Declarer plays a club to his ace and another club toward the and must get four club tricks. If the clubs ere the cWenders get only one club trick. And as the cards East can capture the queen of clubs with the king. declarer can get to dummy with the king of hearts to finesse the nine of again making four tricks in the suit.
