Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Wednesday, August 21, 1974 Lawrence Lamb Dear Dr. Lamb In Adelle Davis' book "Let's Eat Right to Keep Fit" she states that the foods doctors tell their patients to avoid in order to lower cholesterol; i.e. eggs, liver, butter, whole milk. etc.. actually supply the nutrient needed to help lower cholesterol, that nutrient be- ing lecithin. Please give me your opinion1' Dear Reader Did you know that three of Adelle Davis' books are on the "not recommended" list of the Chicago Nutrition Assn.? The Association is composed of top-notch, well informed nutritionists. I suspect such statements that you quoted are one reason for this. Dr. Edward H. Rynearson, formerly professor of Mayo Graduate School of Medicine, is an authority on nutrition and is quoted as saying. "Any physician or dietitian will find the book larded with inac- curacies, misquotation and unsubstantiated statements." James Trager. a well- known writer about food, quotes Dr. Leo Lutwak. M.D. and Ph.D., professor of clinical nutrition at Cornell as saying she ''misuses science." "Adelle Davis lakes incomplete evidence and immediately extrapolates it to what are ridiculous con- clusions from a clinical ooint of view." On the Dinah Shore program she stated that "rice is a good source of protein" as a substitute for high priced meat. It's not. Less than ten per cent of its calories are protein according to U.S. Department of Agriculture data. And I heard her tell Dick Cavett that you had to drink whole milk because you need- ed the fat to absorb the Flashback 1808 Sir Arthur Wellesley, later Duke of Wellington, defeated French Marshall Junot at Vimiero. 1939 Hitler announced a 10-year non-aggression treaty with Russia, signed two days later at Moscow. 1969 The Al Aksa Mosque in Jerusalem was severely damaged by an Australian arsonist. vitamin A. This isn't true either. In evaluating Adelle Davis' concepts about nutrition, you need to put her in to proper time perspective. She was a dedicated pioneer and ac- complished a lot of good in her time. But her time was before World War II. when under- nutrition was a national problem. She was a warm grandmotherly person in her later years. Her education was limited to a bachelor's degree in 1927 and a master's degree in biochemistry in 1937. She came on the nutri- tion scene about the time vitamins were beginning to be isolated and understood. This may explain her overenthusiastic faith in vitamins as a cure-all. You must realize that she was an Indiana farm girl in a time when farm kids sometimes walked two miles to a rural one-room school, often after doing farm chores. There were no hot lunches. A good breakfast before going to school was more important. Her training preceded the time heart disease became an important national medical problem. Between her two degrees Dr. Paul Dudley White was reporting the first series of heart attacks in medical journals as a new problem. Adelle Davis had limited training in medical problems. After all she never went to medical school or practiced medicine So she represented advice from another era. She had some very good points and deserves a lot of credit for encouraging interest in nutrition. Her advice was better suited, in many in- stances, to what we knew and were before World War II. but things have changed. We now have busing, hot lunches, and television. With it we have heart disease. It's time to "Eat Right" for 1974. which is different than down on the farm in 1937. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this new- spaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019. For a copy of Dr. Lamb's booklet on balanced diet, send 50 cents to the same address and ask for the "Balanced Diet" booklet.

Unfortunately. East was un- aware of this concept. South, former world cham- pion George Rapee. is one of the great players of all time. Though he did not hold much in the way of high cards, his hand was strong distribu- tjonally and he refused to allow West's preempt to shut Kim out of the auction. Despite i he vulnerability, he boldly- introduced the spade suit at the four-level and bought the contract West led the king of hearts and continued with the jack, declarer ruffing. !f trumps and VU-r.i. hcio the ace of diamonds, the contract was safe. However, in view of West's preempt there was a good chance that one of the black suits would break badly. To trick three Rapee led the ace of spades, and the nine from West caused declarer to suspect that trumps were going to divide 4-1. It was tempting to enter dummy with a club to take a trump finesse However. Rapee realized that, even if the finesse won. the contract would tail, for there would be no way to draw the fourth trump and run the clubs. With no legitimate way to make the contract. Rapee decided to give East a chance to go wrong, so he continued with the eight of spades from his hand.' Hast could not resist grabbing the queen, and now the contract was guaranteed Declarer ruffed the heart return with the king of trumps, entered dummy with a club and used the jack-ten of spades to extract East's remaining trumps. Now de- clarer could take all his club tricks to make his contract with an overtrick. Observe the difference if East refuses to win the queen of spades. No matter what declarer does, he cannot make his contract. All East has to do is ruff the third club and, if declarer still has retained the king of spades. East returns another heart. Declarer cannot afford to ruff his trick, so the defenders eventually emerge with two heart tricks, a club ruff and the ace of diamonds. SMARTNESS Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Susan Ambrogi, age 11, of Ashland, Virginia, for her question: Who is the smartest person in the world? Every year, the Nobel Prize is awarded to a number of scholars for outstanding brainwork in various fields. It seems only fair to rate these winners as pretty smart people. But nobody can say for Certain that one of them is the smartest person in the whole world. For one thing, we all have different ideas about what smartness is. This is not an easy question to answer because Andy can give you only his own opinion on the subject. Naturally he talks to a lot of brainy people in order to answer your thoughtful questions and who knows, one of them may just be the smartest person in the world. However, this person might be smart in just one particular subject. And old Andy is interested in a sort of general all-around smartness. If he had to choose, most likely he would pick his old friend Gulliver. No, he is not the Gulliver of Gulliver's Travels. Not many people know this Gulliver because he lives a rather quiet life. He en- joys every minute of his job, mainly because he is interested in it and has learn- ed to do it very well. Gulliver also enjoys his family and the home they share. He has time to talk with Mrs. Gulliver and the children, together and separately. They make plans, solve problems and talk over the news, good or bad. The plans include balancing the family budget, the problems include deciding on who gets what to make ends meet. Gulliver thinks its smart to enjoy life as much as possible. He decided long ago that the lives of even the most famous people are made up to the small everyday things that most of us just don't notice. Since there are so many of these small everyday items, Gulliver decided to concentrate on them. Believe it or not, he enjoys little things like putting on a clean shirt, chewing a variety of good foods and even brushing his teeth. Some would say there is nothing smart in all this because anybody can do it. Anybody can try to get the most out of the small every- day things in life and enjoy every minute of it. True, says Gulliver and billions of everyday people do this every day. All these ordinary folk. he says, are just as smart as he is. Therefore it must be quite impossible to select the One Smartest Person in the World. Besides, says Gulliver, it cannot possibly be himself. Mrs. Gulliver, he insists, is just as smart as he is, if not smarter. What's more though he always plans ahead to do the most sensible things possible, he often makes a booboo and does something quite silly. Andy's story of Gulliver is very true to life and it goes to show that being smart is something anybody can be. Questions asked by chil- dren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
