Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 30, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Ask Andy Glaciers Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Venus age of Mer- for her ques- tion. PVbere does the badger make bis The badger is a born digger. he waddles low to ground on stubby al- most any four-footed animal outrun him. He can't swim and he can't climb a tree. But how he can Naturally he lives in regions where the soil is diggable. And the roost natural place to make his home is in a safe and comfort- able underground burrow. 4 ..Few people get a chance to see a badger because he con- ducts most of his outdoor busi- ness at night. it is possible to find his front claor. which is called a badgerhole or a It leads to a roomy underground tunnel. Some- times his homestead is a whole network of tunnels that has be- longed to his family for gener- ations. It is not wise to pry for the badger has a mouthful of sharp teeth ar.d a bite like a bulldog. He is a fearless char- always ready to defend himself and his home against the fiercest foe. He makes no effort to conceal his wide front door far from it. Stones and masses of dirt Fun with figures By J. A. H. HUNTER Each letter stands for a dif- ferent digit. Obviously it all adds up to simple but what ex- actly must that M U S T SUM THESE Bl G I Thanks for an idea to F. J. Quebec. Yesterday's p.m. are piled around the entrance. A well worn path leads from the door. Often it marks the route where the homeowner waddles to drink from a stream. Sometimes this path is strewn with tufts of weeds and grasses. These are dropped when the badger gathers fresh material to line his under- ground nest. Since he is a very neat this happens quite often. Same of the scraps are dropped because he gath- ers the stuff in his front paws and backs into his without looking wnere he is going. The badgsr also is neat in matters of hygiene. He spends a lot of time prinroing and combing the dirt from his handsome fur coat. Some dis- tance from the he digs a shallow hollow to use as a toi- let. Also nearby there is often a favorite tree used as a scratching post. There the badger stands on his hind feet to sharpen the long sturdy claws on his front paws. During the day and some- times moon bright the badger sleeps in his comfortable down deep in his tunnel. ITiually he wakes up an hour after sunet. But on sum- mer he may mistake the time and coir.3 forth before day is done. He is a and very fond of rodent meat. tihis food is often hard to catch because usually a tiny mouse can run faster than he can. This is embarrass- ing because a grown badger is three feet long and one foot j high and his short legs were I made for rather than running. f The male badger is called a boar and the female is called a sow. Most likely the pair mates for life. In early she gives birth to a litter of one to five cubs. A newborn cub is about five inches long plus a one-and-a-half inch tail. At the babes are blind and help- less. After sir weeks or they are coaxed to leave their cozy underground home for les- sons in outdoor badgercraft. Soon the fluffy little cuties are romping around. By fall they are ready to leave their par- 1 ents to start lives of their own. Onestioni by children nf Herald readeri should bt mailed to Ask P.O. Box 7C5. HuntiBglon California 9264S.

Dear Dr. Lamb You might think tliis letter sounds dumb. here goes. I'm an eighth grade student and this sum mel- on TV I heard that shaking hands is bad for the heart. Is this I'd like to have as miich information on this sub- ject as I could. Dear It's not a dumb and it's almost true. IL 15 ic to the differ- ent between isometric and iso- tonic exercises An isometric exercise is one where you taise a muscle like might oc- cur if you close your fist and then grip it as hard as you can. or in a firm handshake. The muscle is tensed without actu- ally changing its shape. You can hold yooir arm out and stiff- en it without moving it. This is an isometric exercise. In iso- tonic exercise the muscles as occurs or bending the elbow back and forth. When a muscle is as in an isometric the pressure in the muscle clamp- ing down on the arteries de- creases the blood flow to that muscle. Some way through a reflex this stimu- lates the nerve control over the arteries in the whole body and can cause the bloed pressure to rise significantly. The degree of rise varies with different in- dividuals. This sama reflex mechanism can cause some people to have extra beais or wnich we call premature contractions or irregularities cf the heart beat. Tins is 1'ie basis for say- ing that handshaking could be dangemis to an individual. Some individuals have half- jokingly suggested that hand- shaking politicians should have a good heart and circulation. I suspect that persons who do have serious heart and vascidar or those who have unusually overactive reflexes in this might indeed have some problems with continuous but for the vast majority of relatively healthy it couldn't create much of a prob- lem. There's an interesting social or cultural aspect to this. We commonly think that a should have a firm hand- clasp. If he extends a limp hand he's thought to be lack- ing in and it can even be extended to question his manhood a rather ridiculous idea if you stop to think about it. It's acceptable for a woman to give a limp handshake or just extend the ends of the fingers. All of this raises some interesting questions about the necessity of the manly handshake'' Dear Dr. Lamb A friend of mine told me that she had heard on the radio that eating any kind of cereal cr wheat germ would give you cancer of the stomach. Is this Pleasa answer. Dear Reader Poppycock. a recent study by Dr. Raymond J. Shambsrger. a bio- chemist at the Cleveland suggests that the decrease in stomach cancer in the United States may well be from using more breakfast cereals. They contain a substance that naturally occurs in the soil and has been found to prevent cancer in mice. Dr. Denis Bur- kitt on the basis of worldwide population that cereal by providing bulk in the digestive helps to prevent many problems of the including cancer of the colon these theories and early observations need more study before they can be generally they cer- tainly emphasize tha point that far from being a cause of cancer of the digestive may well prevent it.
